John Boehner has got to be one of the most obtuse politicians to ever walk the planet. Just when you thought he could not get any worse, he has.
What has he done right now?
He has issued an edict. Republicans are not to gloat if the Supremes do the right thing and strike down Obama.
John, who the hell made you king?
Republicans should celebrate the defeat of Obamacare.
Let’s be blunt. Obamacare is evil. There is no other word to describe it.
Obamacare is the step that the Party of Treason must take in order to force a single payer healthcare system on America.
What is wrong with single payer? Well, all of the payments will come from the government. It will destroy innovation and the effectiveness of the healthcare system.
As Britain or Canada how well that is working out. In Britain, not only are many Britons reduced to pulling their own teeth and often have to wait over a year just to see a specialist.
Obamacare is evil for one major reason. It puts the power of life and death for the average citizen in the hands of the state.
Single payer means the government will decide what bills are paid. They will decide what healthcare Americans get. The government will ration healthcare. This is what is happening in socialist nations right now.
Obamacare and single payer changes the relationship between the American citizen and his government. No longer will this be a government of the people, by the people and for the people, it will be a government of the bureaucrats.
Our national values will no longer be those of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We will be the slaves of the state. We will be the property of the state because healthcare will be rationed.
Government bureaucrats will decide what treatment you get. Unfortunately, many will be treated like an old truck, when the owner decides a new front end is too expensive and it is just time to get rid of it.
Now, our government will decide if we are worth repairing, based on cost, our value to society and how much money is in the budget. If you think insurance companies are bad now, wait until you see Obamacare.
If the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, it is something to celebrate. It is a defeat for evil. Does anyone really think Obama and the Party of Treason will not be celebrating if the Supreme Court destroys freedom in America by upholding Obamacare?
Perhaps Boehner does not want Republicans celebrating the demise of Obamacare because he is already working on Romneycare and that could be used against him.
Could it be?
Meanwhile, here is a memo to the Republicans.
If we win, celebrate.
Dennis, it seems you are lost, this site is for "We The People", you appear to just not fit in, so go away...........quitely. We have heard all of this stuff before, and we are still not even interested..........Socialism by any other name, is just Socialism. If you are unhappy, maybe some other Country might like you, say France, Socialism is big there.
Free market capitalism in competitive markets NOT skewed by government interference HAS always worked. It was government [mainly federal govt] interference of the 1960's which has served to drive medical and healthcare costs through the roof along with progressive-liberal-utopian lies that created this mess.
It was not truly free and competitive markets that drove costs up out of all proportion to inflation and other costs.
Very well-stated, Chas. You could pretty much change a few words and insert any area of government interference into what were previously private markets. The results are all the same, perhaps because the polticians selling the snake-oil are .... spending other people's money. DUH!
What do you mean by liberal-utopian lies driving up medical and healthcare costs? Do you have some example? And are these the same lies that have driven up the cost of health care world-wide, regardless of the country or the form of government?
I do not disagree that the government over regulates. However, when it comes to health care this seems to be one small factor among many, and an over simplification.
Allow this federal government usurping any rights granted by the Constitution......and you can kiss ALL your rights goodbye.
Whether you are debating healthcare or any other once-private industry, there is no more successful alternative than a truly free market to self-correct any problems that arise. Only political interference can stop the normal market forces, unless of course one believes in grand conspiracies, such as all doctors, all drug companies, all oil companies, all corporations, yada, yada, yada.
You are partially correct, the current "system" is a mess. However, most of the mess was made by government interference and participation in what are purely private sector issues. Remove the government interference and participation and the mess becomes much smaller and far more easily repairable.
You solutions are in complete error.
No one on TPN has ever advocated ostrich-like behavior. Here we discuss and offer serious ideas and solutions. Unions and government led to withholding of taxes and employer provided health coverage and benefits. Bad ideas then, bankrupting us now.
All problems are solvable with Liberty solutions. NOT State-run or State-mandated edicts!
more like babbling in the blogosphere ... HeHe.
you mean 20 million illegals will lose, and 30 mill. welfare,,its illegal thats the point, not lets do illegal,we have no rules attitude Obamacare controls every federal committiee and agency in Washington. go to cuba if you want communism
Hey, daves---What glue have YOU been sniffing? You only loose if you get BO"care"--everybody else looses,too!
Find out what it is before you go thinking about what you'll get!!! (Why do you think Pelosi doesn't want you to know what's in it? Clue: She NOT your friggin' fairy godmother!!!) Furthermore, most of the bill
(and I do mean bill) has very little to do with "insurance" and a lot to do with the gov't getting more
CONTROL over you! -- and the taxes you will pay !
Wait 3 years for a surgery you might need NOW, that is, if you live long enough! Then you'll find out what
socialized healthcare is REALLY all about! Hey Toto, this is not the land of Oz!
