President Obama assured us that if we liked our current insurance plans that we could keep them back when he was telling us how good Obamacare was going to be. Obama lied like a dog.
On October 9 of 2010, this writer received a letter: IMPORTANT NOTICE: Your Medicare Drug Coverage is changing. The Pyramid Life Insurance Company will no longer offer your plan beginning Jan. 1, 2011 (that gives me less than 3 mos. to react which is more time the the Dems are giving us to know our tax rates for 2011). Seems my friends and I are all getting either a cancellation letter like this or one saying our premiums are going up, all as a result of Obamacare. Have you checked your mail?
As the September 22 edition of the Washington Examiner points out, Americans have more reason for outrage now than ever. Topping $2.5 trillion, the law (which at 2,400 pages costs about $10.4 billion a page) drives up health care costs in both public and private plans. It spends a healthy chunk of that sum not caring for but killing innocent unborn children. Maybe your plan is pro-life. But if you like it, you probably can't keep it. "By Obama's estimates, as many as 69% of employees, 80% of small businesses, and 64% of large businesses will be forced to change coverage." Premiums are up--tax relief is down. And if your health coverage isn't bureaucrat-approved, the IRS will pocket your tax return. Fortunately, the final vote on the health care bill wasn't the end of the debate. As more and more people wake up to what Congress and this President have done, more voters will rise up in protest and hopefully by no later than November 2.
Six months ago, President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rammed Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling American public. Half a year removed from the unprecedented legislative chicanery and backroom dealing that characterized the bill's passage, we know much more about the bill than we did then. A few of the revelations:
» Obamacare won't decrease health care costs for the government. Costs will clearly go up.
» As written, Obamacare covers elective abortions, contrary to Obama's promise that it wouldn't.
» Obamacare won't allow employees or most small businesses to keep the coverage they have and like. By Obama's estimates, as many as 69 percent of employees, 80 percent of small businesses, and 64 percent of large businesses will be forced to change coverage, probably to more expensive plans.
» Obamacare will increase insurance premiums -- in some places, it already has.
» Obamacare will force seasonal employers -- especially the ski and amusement park industries -- to pay huge fines, cut hours, or lay off employees.
» Obamacare forces states to guarantee not only payment but also treatment for indigent Medicaid patients.
Make no mistake about it. This is all a brutal and devious plan to drive create a health care disaster, blame the inusurance companies and Republicans, and drive all but the political elite to a single payer socialistic government run health care system controlled by those who want to reform America and redistribute wealth to themselves and their voters. This is right out of the Lenin, Stalin, Castro, and Chavez playbook.
Never has a citizen's single course of action been clearer. Throw these guys out of office and repeal this law ASAP.
Don't even think about it. Just do it.
