A Good Question About ObamaCare

My wife forwarded this to me.

Let me get this straight . . . .

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and
fined if we don't,

which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,

written by a committee whose chairman
says he doesn't understand it,

passed by a Congress that didn't read it but
exempted themselves from it,

and signed by a President who smokes,

with funding administered by a treasury chief who
didn't pay his taxes,

for which we'll be taxed for four years before any
benefits take effect
,

by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,

all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,

and financed by a country that's broke!

'What could
possibly go wrong
?'

All the world's a stage, and the current play is a farce.

"What could possibly go RIGHT?" is what I've asked myself. I think if anything goes right with ObamaCare, it will be an accident.

The fact that Congress exempted themselves from this, as they do with any bad idea that they impose on the rest of us for the sole purpose of gaining power over the rest of us, sums up what you need to know.

By the way, you left out that quote by Nancy Pelosi: "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

People who haven't yet learned what is in it may not be very happy once this hits full force in less than 4 years.

Marty, you should print this post and frame it.

It's an instant classic.

The sad thing is that the public, ever passive, will just sit there, even though it will increase the chances that people who pay into the system will get sicker, longer, and more likely die as a result. My best advice: email this to everyone you know, and also my simple blueprint for a far more effective health care plan that I recently wrote about in my blog.

16,000 additional IRS agents with high salaries, gold plated bennies and pension is such an efficient use of money. Might as well set fire to a few hundred million dollars.

Currently in Massachusetts. Coming soon for the rest of us.

"The state’s health insurance connector — the highly touted agency that aims to bring cheap medical care to the masses — has turned into a legal pit bull by aggressively going after a growing number of Bay Staters who say they can’t afford mandated insurance — or the penalties imposed for not having it."

Call me naive, but as a registered independent who voted for Obama because I want universal health care and am disappointed that his plan isn't big enough, I still support this plan. because it is better than nothing. Call me naive,but while I realize Obama care is clearly flawed, I think it's a start and once implemented can hopefully be approved on in the years to come.

Also didn't Obama quit smoking a long time ago? I'd look it up if I thought it had anything to with the argument of health care.

Why can't we have a national referendum on Obamacare?
