Senate Panel Kills Government Healthcare Plan
Tuesday, September 29, 2009 3:10 PM
One option under consideration would reduce the number of individuals and families eligible for federal health coverage subsidies to those earning less than 400 percent of poverty, or about $43,000 for a single person and $88,000 for a family of four, officials said, commenting only on condition of anonymity. The subsidies are designed to make insurance more affordable, and account for a significant percentage of spending in the bill.
Unpack the Option
Think about the THREE numbers mentioned: 43,000, 88,000 and 4. What do they represent? These numbers represent the boundaries of Master Obama’s plantation. You think not?
An individual of $43,000 or less taxable income would receive subsidies. Another person who earns $43,001 will be heavily taxed by the IRS, whether he buys insurance or not. If this person, who may be in the age range 16 to 24 years, is single, a student or in some other pursuit common to young Americans, healthy, no history of family disease and eager to purchase a home or lease an apartment, perceives he is at low risk of needing medical insurance, may decide he does not need the coverage. He has higher priorities for his meager funds. By the way, unemployment of the age range of 16 to 24 years is presently at 52%.
If he fails to purchase insurance, the IRS will levy a huge fine and he may be sentenced to jail – think debtor’s prison. How does a young person, anyone for that matter, pay a $25,000 fine on $43,000 annual income? Furthermore, how does he earn anything while imprisoned? (read more about this)
Bottom Line – Government-mandated Insurance is unconstitutional. All the jibber-jabber in Washington about “healthcare overhaul” is a subterfuge for a government takeover of the entire medical industry: doctors, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, hospitals and emergency services – EVERYTHING. Everyone will be on welfare at some point in time, if the Democrats and their community organizer take over our healthcare system, just as it is in Cuba. He will control the salaries of everyone. His politburo will decide who lives or dies, how many children a family may have and limit family size by forced abortions (that’s the importance of the number 4 mentioned above).
God ordained and established this nation. He gave us wise and learned men to craft our Constitution. They fashioned the nation as a republic, not a democracy – A REPUBLIC, a government that follows the rule of law, not a democracy that is nothing more than mob rule, majority rule.
Democrat lawmakers ignore the rule of law, they ignore the Constitution. The Democrat party leader, Barak Hussein Obama, a man of dubious birthright, a man who conceals his academic record and prefers to work in the shadows with his appointed czars instead of allowing the Congress to vet cabinet officers, demands that lawmakers accept his radical agenda.
Meanwhile, what are his priorities? BHO is in Copenhagen lobbying to get the Olympics for Chicago, while our military commanders in Afghanistan nervously await a decision to send more troops. Obama spoke once with Gen. McChrystal one time in seventy days.
Take Action – Contact your congressional representatives and do it several times each week until we defeat the greatest threat to our freedoms we have ever known. Click on the links below to express your opinion about government-run healthcare.
- I perceive forced abortions on families under $88,000 annual combined income. If they have more children, it may be impossible to afford even government insurance. By including elective abortion as a covered item, many families will choose abortion over a huge fine and possible jail time.
- Obama cares nothing for ACORN. He will readily abandon the organization to further his agenda – nationalization of economy, establishing a utopian state where we are “citizens of the world”.
- Although he has not publicly, as yet, stated his political and philosophical values, I firmly believe Obama is a communist. He surrounds himself with communists, avowed communists mentored him and one of the communists (Bill Ayers) may have actually written his book for him.
- Obama conceals his academic record because the truth would alienate even his most ardent supporters. Harlem lawyer Percy Sutton claims that Islamic radical Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour asked him to write a letter to Harvard Law School to endorse Barak Obama. Sutton says al-Mansour, a Saudi citizen, was raising money for Obama. Hear his testimony on YouTube.com Video: Obama and Khalid Mansour
- We are approaching the point of no return. If we Americans, in particular Christians, do not fast, repent and pray, according to 2 Chronicles 7:14, our nation is lost. America is the last nation on earth to defend Israel. As you pray for America, remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
- Obamacare will corral all but the ruling oligarchy onto a ‘welfare plantation’ similar to Cuba’s healthcare system.
- The struggle to preserve America continues until we restore reasonable, pro-American lawmakers to public office in the 2010 elections.
