Barack Obama and the Democrats: “If you like your health plan, you can keep it, the only thing that will change is that you’ll pay less.”
Um, no. You will lose your insurance under Obamacare. Unless you pay through the nose for private coverage, which will eventually be forced into oblivion. Then it will be health care rationing for all. Not to mention over a trillion dollar price tag.
And need I say that this won’t be a good thing for the economy?
Take it from someone who’s actually read the bill. Betsy McCaughey has gone through it and reveals for you and I–with page numbers–just what we can expect.
Please call your Senators and ask them if they, too, will go on the Obamacare plan should it pass. And don’t let them hem and haw their way out of an answer. Persist until you get a yes or a no, and then proceed to ask them a follow-up on why they won’t be on it. (Oh, come on. You actually think they’ll say yes?)
And Jim DeMint (R-SC) continued to put Obama’s rear-end over the fire with his statement:
“The last time the President made grand promises and demanded passage of a bill before it could be reviewed, we ended up with the colossal stimulus failure and unemployment near 10 percent,” said Senator DeMint.
“Now the President wants Americans to trust him again, but he can’t back up the utopian promises he’s making about a government takeover of health care. He insists his health care plan won’t add to our nation’s deficit despite the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office saying exactly the opposite. And today we learn that the President is refusing to release a critical report on the state of our economy, which contains facts essential to this debate. What is he hiding?
“If the actual legislation came close to matching the President’s rhetoric, he would have no problem passing this bill with huge Democrat majorities in both chambers. But Americans aren’t being fooled and are discovering the truth about his plan which includes rationed care, trillions in new costs, high taxes and penalties that will destroy jobs, and even government-funded abortions.
“Let’s be clear, there is no one in this debate advocating that we do nothing despite the President’s constant straw man arguments. Republicans have offered comprehensive health care reform solutions that cover millions of the uninsured without exploding costs, raising taxes, or rationing care. We can give every American access to a health plan they can own, afford and keep without a government takeover.”
Thanks, Mr. DeMint.
And, finally, a clip from O’Reilly, who warns, “If we continue to go in this direction, the country will be bankrupt perhaps by the end of this year”:
Unbe-FREAKING-lievable: “You know, I have to say I’m not familiar with the provision you are talking about.”
One may only conclude two things, then, Mr. Obama. 1) You’re LYING about people being able to keep their private insurance or 2) You’re such a moron that you are pushing to pass a bill that YOU HAVE NOT EVEN READ.
