Obamacare: Lipsticking the Heathcare Reform Pig … What Ever Happened to the Uniter Obama that was Promised?

 

Healthcare reform in the United States according to Barack Obama … Lipsticking a Pig.

Vanderbilt_lipstikw-o_debate

The American people need to look no farther with regards to how government would handle healthcare reform that the 15 delay to listen to Obama’s speech. Did anyone see the irony? Get used to it with government run healthcare. Why is Obama reinventing the wheel with a complete overhaul when it is not needed?

One thing is for certain, Barack Obama has never been part of corporate America and ever given a power point presentation to execs that demand you get to the point in a timely manner. His speech went on far to long and once again failed on details; however, reiterated much of the same old talking points. Let’s help Obama out. Healthcare reform in the United States can be started right now, not four years from now … right this second to help those out who cannot afford insurance coverage.

  • TORT REFORM
  • ALLOWING COMPETITION ACROSS STATE LINES FOR ALL CARRIERS
  • NO PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS CLAUSE
  • HSA’s – PORTABILITY OF INSURANCE
  • TAX DEDUCTIONS FOR HEALTHCARE
  • SAFETY NET FOR ONLY THE POOR

Tort Reform should not be a pilot program, it should be implemented immediately. Ridiculous law suits, defensive medicine and out of control malpractice insurance have greatly added unnecessary cost to healthcare. However, would Obama really bite the hand that feeds him with the Trial lawyers

If Barack Obama is willing to create a pool of insurance carriers then there should be no reason not to allow insurance carriers to compete across state lines for insureds. What better form of competition that companies that are ready, willing and waiting to sign up new insureds. The competition would end insurance monopolies in  states like Alabama and California and reduce insurance premiums immediately.

In the end, if the rest of the population that cannot afford healthcare that the President referred to still exits, why can’t that small number be added to Medicaid?

The question is, did the speech help Barack Obama? Remember America, this is not about Obama’s legacy, this is about your future.

In all that you heard last night during Obama’s far too long, rambling speech, did you once hear that he has heard the American people speak over the summer and has heard their words? Nope! Not once did President Barack Obama acknowledge the dissent of the will of “We the People” which explains his sinking poll numbers. In other words, he could care less about you.

 In the end Obama’s healthcare reform speech mulligan was once again the same speech as all the previous ones, been there, done that. Although this time Barack shamefully brought out the win one for Teddy Kennedy card.

Remember when Barack Obama said he was open to ideas from his friends across the aile in the Republican party? Well then why hasn’t “The One” not met with GOP leaders since April to discuss healthcare? How can a President claim that he is looking for all ideas when it comes to healthcare reform when Obama has avoided Republicans and has made claims that they have no ideas on the matter?

However, what did we get from Obama when a majority of the people are against his plans? He made a threat that, “If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out.” Doesn’t this sound like an attempt to squelch free speech for anyone who would dare oppose Barack Obama? This smacks of the snitching on your neighbors email that the President’s minions devised that was a loser. Just an FYI Mr. President … when you misrepresent the truth, we will call you out on it as well.

In the end, are Red State Democrats willing to give up their seats for this liberal President?

Remember when Barack Obama said that this was a means to an end? America, remember what this President has said in the past as to what his ultimate goal really is. It is always about a means to an end.

“I happen to be a proponent of the Single Payer Option”

 

This President is making this reform much more difficult than it need be. Maybe he cannot completely get his message across to the people, because the full message is opposed by “We the People”.

      A pilot program for Tort Reform. MMMmmmm. That
      tiny, insignificant, little seen, less reported, strung-out,
      zero progress, bureaucratically gagged, and back-room
      herring will never amount to anything but a lost leader
      (not lost Obowma Leader) to pacify those who are being
      chained to the largest Government Takeover in History.

      The government should adjust requirements to medicaid to cover uninsureds and leave private industry alone. I could not listen to his speech after hearing his plan to remove caps on benefits, coinsurance, underwriting etc. It sounds good but there is no way for that to happen with affordable premiums. You may have the option to keep what you have, but I guarantee employers will no longer be able to provide group plans. Crossing state lines sounds good as well but without state mandates your coverages will change and not necessarily for the better. If it sounds too good to be true it usually is. I hope Americans do not fall for any more Obamaisms.

      obama’s plan has too many gaps that will lead to government control. why would this idiot want to force this on people that are against it ? it can only be government control. the major step for his agenda for total control of the country.
      he spreads doubt everytime he opens his mouth. he might as well have a sign stapled to his forehead that says do not trust me !

      When We the People paid out of our pockets for Doctoring
      and ‘Hospitaling’, Doctor and Hospital fees and costs met
      our ability to pay. In other words the market forces drove
      charging. Enter the government entitlement programs.
      Doctoring and ‘Hospitaling’ began dealing with the Government
      concerning it’s ability and willingness to use vast taxation to
      disperse funds. Insurance Companies found that it was cheaper
      to pay out larger amounts than to police the claims made.
      Attorneys, noticing deeper pockets all around, discovered
      the worth of increased suits IMHO. All the above is in my
      general opinion of pertinent factors influencing part of the
      high cost of today’s medical care. Also, better care from
      innovation, machines, and research has contributed to the
      very best care in the world here in this Country.

      He is not forcing this on anybody, he is pressing congress to pass it. Thats his job. So far the democratic process is working as our representetives get the feel of what we want. Some democrats are against the public option and won’t vote for it.

      Obama ststed that any kind of reform will not be in effect for at least 4 years so maybe the next guy will be a republican that can revert it back to big business taking from you instead of big government.

      WHIP COUNT: DEMS LACK THE VOTES
      Wed Sep 09 2009 17:03:37 ET

      At least 44 more moderate Members of the Democrat Caucus have gone on the record in opposition to the current health care bill in the House, a Hill source claims. Likewise, at least 57 liberal Members of the Democrat Caucus have gone on the record saying they will vote against a health care bill without a strong public option.

      Unless multiple Democrats flip on their stated position on health care, Speaker Pelosi lacks the votes to pass a bill through the House on the strength of Democrat votes alone.

      57 Liberal Democrats to vote no on a bill without a strong public option

      On July 31, 2009, the Congressional Progressive Caucus sent a letter to Speaker Pelosi expressing their opposition to a weakening of the public option. The letter on behalf of 57 Progressive Democrats concludes, “In short, this agreement will result in the public, both as insurance purchasers and as taxpayers, paying ever higher rates to insurance companies. We simply cannot vote for such a proposal.” The text can be read here: http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/uploads/57%20member%20letter%20to%20PelosiWaxman%207%2030%2009.pdf

      NO PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS CLAUSE

      Now think about that for a minute. If you force this on insurance companies, they aren’t selling insurance anymore. “Insurance” guards against financial ruin IF something happens. If you could now wait to get your “insurance” until something DOES happen – who would buy insurance ahead of time?

      AND, someone is going to have to pay for all those folks with pre-existing conditions that the insurance companies are going to be forced to suddenly “insure”. Three guesses who that will be – the first two guesses don’t count.

      Example: A married couple, previously not insured, finds
      out they each have AIDS. Under the ‘Plan’, both gentlemen
      can immediately secure Health Insurance without regard
      to pre-existing conditions. Question: will the government
      regulated Insurance Company raise premiums on all it’s
      policy holders to cover these expensive treatments? Will
      the Death Panel determine the relative value of the lives
      of this couple vs treatment expenses? What if this couple
      cannot prove US citizenship or documentation? Does the
      ‘Plan’ cover Custodial Care for the indigent? So many
      unanswered and non-debated questions……

      The people are NOT for it.

      Good point Kat.
