ObamaCare Round Up and LinkFest: PART II

The Other McCain has a review of Michelle Malkin’s overview of the way Michelle Obama treated patients at the University of Chicago Hospital.  It is not pretty.

Gateway Pundit has information indicating that Obama’s Health Care Advisors want to euthenize Americans who can no longer pay more in taxes then they can receive.  Didn’t I say that OregonCare is ALREADY doing that?  Oh, that’s right, I did. ActivelyFuzed, what do you say to this?

Okie reports that  ACORN  is going after those who disagree with the President on ObamaCare.

Similar events happened in Baton Rouge recently, where ACORN siced the Police on people who where discussing ObamaCare away from the event.

The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler also has some info on a Nurse forced to preform Infantacidal Eugenics, after she was threatened with letters in her Curiculum Vitae accusing her of Insubordination and Patient Abandonment should she refuse. How long, under ObamaCare, till they use this to force Nurses to Euthenize +65 year olds who are refusing to comply with their End-of-life Counselor’s recomendations?  We already know the Top Advisors of Obama in this field are recomending this option for all those who get sick but don’t have Private Health Insurance.

Hot Air Reports that ObamaCare Activists are just ignoring the facts altogether.

At least Newt is trying to come up with something.

The Crime of Nationalized Healthcare: Control

Well, the damn bill is too long for me to look it over.  But, others whom I trust have, and they had the following to report.

IBD:

Pg 16 reveals that ANYONE without Healthcare for even a second will be FORCED to join the National Healthcare System, even if they are simply moving over to a new Health Insurance Company.  So far, I have found no way for a person to get themselves removed from that plan unless they sue the Federal Government for removal from the plan.

Other sources have also stated that once a person reaches the age of 65, they will be visited by an End of Life Counselor every Five Years whose job will be to try and convince you to go to a clinic and KILL YOURSELF via Euthenasia, as you will otherwise use up too much Government Money for the return in TAXES to the Govt.

I have found no less then TWELVE unconstitutional aspects within that bill, which, in accordance to my Three Strikes Unconstitutional style, makes this bill FOUR KINDS of UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

Nice Job, Obama, you officially suck at your job.

Healthcare Solutions

This is going to be a brainstorming post that I will be coming back to from time to time to update with new ideas I have on how to fix the healthcare “Crisis” in the United States without government control.  Free Markets rock, and will be the basis of my ideas.

There will be a poll, so please, tell me which ones you like best

  1. Healthcare Savings Accounts: the widespread use of HSA’s would probablly mean the posting of Healthcare Service Costs in a Doctor’s office, and would make the whole system more competitive, and as I ranted a while ago, Competition is Life, Stagnation is Death.
  2. Insurance Choices: I call this the Progressive Auto Insurance Style of Health Insurance shopping (they really should sponsor me for as often as I mention them in this blog) where, like they show in the commercials, you walk in, tell them what you want to cover and how much you want to pay, and work out a policy that works for you.  Combine with an HSA, and we should be able to bring down the cost of Healthcare for everyone.
  3. Opening Up of State Borders: Let people go shopping.  There are over 300 Health Insurance Companies in the United States of America, yet the average citizen has access to about 2% of them because he lives in the wrong state.  Let us buy whatever policy we want to buy, and supplement it with additional care as we see fit.
  4. Loser Pays Tort Reform: Right now, every time that a malpractice case is filed against your doctor, YOUR Health Insurance Premium goes up.  This is for a VERY simple reason.  As the costs of their Malpractice Insurance Costs increase, so that their Malpractice Insurance Company can pay for their Lawyer, in order for them to stay in business (because, like it or not, For Profit ANYTHING work harder then Not-For Profit) they must pass off the costs into an increase in the cost of service, and like all shit, it rolls down hill onto you and me.  If we create a Loser Pays system, it will create a greater burden of proof on Plaintiffs, and will prevent cases like the John Edwards Cesarean Section case that resulted in 45% of all children being born in needless C-Sections…
  5. Reducing the Corporate Taxes on Pharmaceutical Companies: This forces companies overseas, and adds an increase to their Overhead.  Thanks to these Corporate Taxes, many of our Pharmaceutical companies are moving overseas to Ireland, creating a Shipping Overhead that we have to pay, on top of the Corporate Tax Overhead that already exists because they do business in the United States.  The FairTax would go a ways towards fixing THAT problem.

Those are just a few thoughts.  Vote in the poll to tell me which you think would work best (and feel free to vote for more then one).

ObamaCare Roundup and LinkFest

Okay, I don’t have time to do the analysis I would like to do with all of this, because there is so fraking much of it.  So, for now, I am going to post the following links, and follow it up with a post this afternoon examining it.

Michelle Malkin:

Congressman laughed at over healthcare bill

The good news is that ObamaCare is suffering a Code Blue, as Michelle Malkin describes in this post.

Which is a good thing, becuase otherwise 83,000,000 would lose their private health care, and be forced to rely on the government.

But, as Michelle also reports, the more they talk, the lower their support falls.  He might just beat out Bush in reaching the skinny digits…

Mere Rhetoric:

Mere Rhetoric also reports that Obama is going after those on the Hill who speak out in opposition to his plan.  Sounds rather Wilsonian to me.  Wonder when he will start jailing them…

Gateway Pundit:

Gateway Pundit has a copy of the President’s Twitter, where he accused us of “Playing Politics with Lives.”

GP also has a video of Roy Blunt (Congressman from across State Line) asking Obama and the Libs why they aren’t going to be on ObamaCare themselves. Healthcare for me, but not for thee.

There is a great video of one of us Unruly Peasents telling the Health Secretary (Again, America, Kansas Apologises for unleashing her upon you) that it will be a “Cold Day In Hell” before she socializes America.  Sebelius looked flabergasted.

Gateway Pundit reports that there are going to be Racial preferences in the system.  Great, just great.  This is going to suck hard.

Senator DeMint went after Obama and the Libs over Obamacare and 10% unemployment.  Nice job man.

Atlas Shrugs:

Atlas has a great post which looks at all of the hidden snags and snare. READ IT.  LEARN IT.  SAY IT.  THIS is our most important tool.  Speak truth, and shame the devil.

Hot Air:

Obama told a woman that her mother might have been better off if she had gotten painkillers instead of a pacemaker.  God, it’s like the NHS in there…

Hot Air also shows that in Obama’s view, there are the unwashed masses and The Elites.  And that we must “Stop Clining” to the healthcare system 81% are okay with…

Pirate Cove:

The Pirates are reporting that Obama doesn’t even know what is in H.R. 3200, and that he hasn’t read it.  Why am I not surprised.

RedState:

RS is reporting that there is no concensus among Democrats in the House on ObamaCare. KEEP UP THE PRESSURE.  They broke to many arms to pass Crap & Tax, they don’t have much power left for this one.

RedState does a good job in comparing the ObamaCare plan to Britain’s NHS.

Sweetness and Light:

S&L reports that H.R. 3200 has been postponed over concerns from Blue Dogs. Now if only we could get them to throw their support behind the F-22 projects…

Heritage Foundation:

Obama is raising taxes on the Poor to pay for ObamaCare.

With the threats of ObamaCare, The Foundry looks at whether or not the Government should be in charge of determining the value of an American Life.

This Policy Paper goes even more indepth into the same.

The Other McCain:

Stacy over at The Other McCain is also reporting that Obama’s pushing of H.R. 3200 is killing his approval ratings.

Dealergate

Well, just when you thought that Dealergate was over and the dust had settled, the whole brough-ha-ha flares up yet again.  Michelle Malkin has the details.

It would seem that the President doesn’t like it when the Congress disagrees with him.  Here’s hoping they show a bigger spine then they did over the F-22 Debate…

The Crime of Nationalized Healthcare: I Hate Being Right Sometimes

I hate being right all the time.  It seems, that like I warned with the OregonCare post earlier, ObamaCare wants you to die with dignity.

And as Investor’s Business Daily has shown, you will be forced onto ObamaCare if you go for even a second without Healthcare.  So, this means that everyone is vulnerable.

So, I am going to use this week to follow in RedState’s lead, and gather opposition.  Sadly, there are no ObamaCare protests planned for this week of which I am aware.  If you know of one, please contact me here, and let me know.  We MUST stop this chain from being forged.

EFCA Collapsing

Well, it might be time to retire my Card Check category, as, according to RedState, they are removing the Card Check provision from the bill.  There is still much that needs to be defeated, but we are closer to the Free Markets we yearn for.  Find out more at RedState.
