Obama urges leftist bloggers to push his healthcare agenda -- admits he is not familiar with the House bill!
It is no surprise that President Obama, of all people, is not familiar with the provisions contained in a 1000+ page House bill supporting his healthcare initiative. Neither are the House Members who are expected to vote on this critical issue which will change healthcare forever – towards a socialized medicine solution patterned after European and Canadian systems which clearly feature rationing, poor service and the denial of care to the elderly as a means of cost containment.
Read for yourself the coverage of this conference call …
“With the public’s trust in his handling of health care tanking (50%-44% of Americans disapprove), the White House has launched a new phase of its strategy designed to pass Obamacare: all Obama, all the time. As part of that effort, Obama hosted a conference call with leftist bloggers urging them to pressure Congress to pass his health plan as soon as possible.”
“During the call, a blogger from Maine said he kept running into an Investors Business Daily article that claimed Section 102 of the House health legislation would outlaw private insurance. He asked: “Is this true? Will people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?” President Obama replied: “You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about.” (quote begins at 17:10)”
One of Obama’s big lies …
“This is a truly disturbing admission by the President, especially considering that later in the call, Obama promises yet again: ‘If you have health insurance, and you like it, and you have a doctor that you like, then you can keep it. Period.’ How can Obama keep making this promise if he is not familiar with the health legislation that is being written in Congress? Details matter.”
Obama’s plan will regulate private health insurance out of existence …
“We are familiar with the passage IBD cites, and as we wrote last week, the House bill does not outright outlaw private individual health insurance, but it does effectively regulate it out of existence. The House bill does allow private insurance to be sold, but only ‘Exchange-participating health benefits plans.’ In order to qualify as an ‘Exchange-participating health benefits plan,’ all health insurance plans must conform to a slew of new regulations, including community rating and guaranteed issue. These will all send the cost of private individual health insurance skyrocketing. Furthermore, all these new regulations would not apply just to individual insurance plans, but to all insurance plans. So the House bill will also drive up the cost of your existing employer coverage as well.
The real goal: price ordinary healthcare insurance out of existence …
“Until, of course, it becomes so expensive that your company makes the perfectly economical decision to dump you into the government plan.”
These leftist bastards will say or do anything to obtain control over America’s politics, finances, healthcare, industry and military …
It is truly frightening that the President of the United States is pressuring Congress in an all-out media blitz to pass legislation that he flatly admits he has not read and is not familiar with. President Obama owes it to the American people to stop making promises about what his health plan will or will not do until he has read it, and can properly defend it in public, to his own supporters.
Bottom Line …
Are you prepared to turn your country over to the socialists, anarchists and communists? We are being attacked by our enemies, both foreign and domestic and we watch as our political representatives and elected officials sell us out for the proverbial thirty-pieces of silver.
