Countering Obama's Rhetoric

The desperation of the Obama Democrat party is pitiful. We are seeing arrogance and miscues from the ranking Democrat leaders in Capitol Hill. From a Democratic congresswoman answering her cell phone while a constituent asks her a question to Pelosi calling the protestor against Universal Healthcare as un-American, these idiots don’t come close in comparison to the great messiah Barack Hussein Obama.

Now, since Obama has gone back on the campaign trail attending a fixed town hall meeting around the country, I need to counter some of his rhetoric with some good hard facts.

Obama promises every American can keep their current healthcare coverage, but he doesn’t tell you that more than 88 million people will lose their current insurance coverage if the government takes over our healthcare system. In an analysis of the July 15 draft of the American Affordable Health Choice Act of 2009, it said that under current law, there will be about 158.1 million people who are covered under an employer plan as workers, dependents or early retirees in 2011. If the act were fully implemented in that year, about 88.1 million workers would shift from private employer insurance to the public plan.

Remember this familiar promise? Obama pledges every American can keep their current doctor. Obama actual quote, "If you like your plan and you like your doctor, you won’t have to do a thing. You keep your plan. You keep your doctor . . . We’re not going to mess with it." Well, I heard that the Mayo Clinic says a government takeover of our healthcare system will force doctors to drop patients. This healthcare bill being presented has a provision to approve across-the-board federal payment reductions of $155 billion over 10 years for hospitals. This also means that there will be a reduction paid to doctors as well. If the government is going to pay doctors poorly, you can rest assured that they will drop patients to avoid the high cost.

My favorite rhetoric by Obama is his promise that there will be no additional tax on the middle class. To quote Obama from the "Today Show" last month, "What I’ve said is, and I have stuck to this point, I don’t want to see additional tax burdens on people making $250,000 a year or less." You know if such a bold statement was used to pander the American people, you can be certain it was a lie. In the massive healthcare bill that no one read, it had a provision that will impose a 2.5% tax on uninsured individuals. It states that a penalty will be assessed on people who don’t obtain insurance that would equal 2.5% of the difference between their adjusted gross income and the tax filing threshold.

I can see a major turnaround by the American people. While Obama is telling supporters to push back twice as hard, they are no-match to us. We are center right country. Majority views ourselves as conservatives. Recent polls show American siding Republicans as the solution to our healthcare problem. I say to Democrats, "You should be a great deal scared. Remember 1994. It will happen again."
