Defeat ObamaCare: Devil's in the Details



Do you wonder how ObamaCare can be defeated before it kills our country? Me too.

Do you feel powerless to stop it, save badgering your Congressional leaders? Me too.



An excellent article by Fox News analyst Dick Morris gives us hope, friends, AND INSTRUCTIONS!

If you’re reading this, you’re part of the blogging world. If you’re a blogger, you have a certain amount of power in this fight, believe it or not. We each have a sphere of influence to affect the outcome of this process, & insure the defeat of the monstrosity that is Government overhaul & Socializing our Healthcare system.

Dick Morris tells us the Devil’s in the details, & tells us how to use them:

Our task is to reduce public support for the bill by publicizing its provisions, notably:

1. The $400 billion cut in Medicare.

2. The inevitable scarcity that will result from the addition of 35 million new patients with no new doctors or nurses.

3. The fine on the uninsured of 2.5 percent of their income if they don't buy insurance.

4. The high cost of these mandatory insurance policies ($15,000 per family).

5. The low level of subsidy available for the uninsured (only after they pay 8-12% of their incomes).

6. The likelihood of a $1,700 increase in the average family's premiums.

7. The possibility of up to five years in prison for failing to buy insurance or pay the fine.

8. The taxation of medical devices like pacemakers, wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, hearing aids, etc.

9. The tax on sick people (increasing the threshold for deducting medical expenses from 7.5 percent to 10 percent of income.

10. The additional fiscal burden on the states of the increase in Medicaid eligibility.

11. The 40 percent tax on health insurance premiums that will effect households earning more than $75,000 by the fifth year of the plan.

We can still win this fight!

Friends, we are part of the American internet/information Revolution!

Use your voice to “reduce public support for the bill” by outing the Devil in the details. It’s a Trojan Horse they don’t want us to see. The good news is that we do. There's still time to sound the alarm!

Been to a Tea Party this year? Okay. Now: Be Paul Revere.

When corporations move overseas to escape higher taxes from this and cap and trade and Americans no longer have jobs, the healthcare bill won't have any money. This may be the only way it gets defeated at this point. Unfortunately, it also points to our demise. Irresponsibility is killing this country, and you and I both know the numbers don't add up for Obamcare.

Do you know Obama is ready to allow 14 million illegals into the country legally. What do you think that's going to do to this healthcare system? Drain it of course!

I'm with you Susannah! I need to feel like I'm doing something and if diseminating information is all I can do - then that's what I'll do!

Bill has an excellent point! Corporations and businesses with deep pockets will look out for their own interests. If that means taking operations offshore because a relatively small group of socialists can't see past their noses, they'll do so. And with them, go the jobs. We need to get obama outta here and vote our own way into the pilot house ... so we can turn this thing around. We need to make conditions favorable for employers to build things, sell them, and hire people in the United States. We can't do that with one-track minds like Obama, Pelosi and the rest of the knee-jerkers in power.

You're right, Suz ... we can win the battle, but it's gonna take work and it's gonna be messy.

Maybe it’s just me but it is getting more apparent that our national anthem means less and less to folks these days.
I learned when I was in kindergarten that you should stand silently, with your hand over your heart. You can either sing along or just shut the fuck up but more and more people are oblivious of this.
To those of you who like to text, chat with neighbors, pick your fucken nose and scratch yourself down there let me just say you people make me sick.
Here I am in the DC arena full of liberal folks, albeit in the liberal capital of the Country and people are showing less and less respect for the anthem and what it means.
In addition more and more idiot fucks like to shout out random retarded shit at the end of the song where it says “and the home… of the brave…” brave being replaced with some ignorant shit like “The other team Sucks” which was shouted during Kansas City Chiefs football game.
Not sure why it bothers me now, I have been to more sporting events in person due to my Mrs. and me purchasing KU football tickets and witnessing the dreadful collapse of a promising football team.
Folks this is just an observation and a rant. Moodiness has its price.

This moodiness has also led to me not blogging near as much as I have in the past. I have just made a conscious decision not to pay as much attention to the days news and I use to. I’ll be honest with you; I just don’t give a shit as much anymore… or at least right now.
I’m sure the time of year has a lot to do with it. It has been a busy time here it work after next week we will have nothing major until February so I will have a lot of down time.
The weather has been great in this part of the country and I have taken advantage by riding my motorcycle and frankly this takes precedence over anything our idiot fuck president does. (Or don’t do, when he should)
I don’t want pay too much attention to Obama fucking things up, and believe me he has fuck up enormously . I will be so happy when he ceases to be president any longer. Maybe then folks can find work, recapture the “American Dream” and life can go back to some semblance of normal.
I have taken some advice from Newt during his presentation last week (if you have not watched I highly recommend). Yes Obama has fucked up things but this is America… we can and will recover and if this nation can overcome a fucken moron like Jimmy Carter we can overcome a disaster like the little prick Obama.
So while I go through my “don’t give a shit stage” but we all have our priorities and Obama or liberals in general should NOT be at the top of anybody’s give a shit list, but be on there somewhere.
I may start posting more funny and entertaining stuff to break the cycle of despair and hopelessness many face because of this Socialist thug president.
So to wrap up today, here is some things I did read this morning.
*****
Grieving Mom demands Obama make decision on Afghanistan troop levels... As family and friends mourn a fallen U.S. paratrooper on Veteran's Day, his mother made an emotional plea to President Barack Obama that it's time to either bring home the troops or end the war in Afghanistan.
The body of Benjamin Sherman, 21, was recovered in Afghanistan Tuesday.
"It's time we do something. This has gone on too long. They either need to come home or we need to end it," a tearful Denise Sherman said.
Sherman was on his second tour of duty when he disappeared in Afghanistan last week during a mission to resupply troops in the western part of the country. He was a paratrooper with the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based in Fort Bragg, N.C.
So my message to Obama is simply... Shit or get off the pot!

Allowing this piece of excrement to have an unfettered voice on the world stage is treasonous.

PSI Bond said...

During his first eight months in office, Obama has exhibited his admiration for dictators and disdain for our allies. He offended the Queen of England and bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. He praised the Marxist Daniel Ortega, kissed Socialist Hugo Chavez on the cheek and endorsed the Socialist Evo Morales of Bolivia. He sided with Hugo Chavez and Communist Fidel Castro against Honduras, a country that followed its constitution and stopped its president from illegally turning himself into that country’s dictator. Obama announced that he would meet with Iranians with no pre-conditions, while they’re building their nuclear weapons.

If what Obama is doing does not scare the hell out of you then you are already dead.

The Malcontent said...

Yeah! Squeeze my employer. Cut his profit to the bone. That'll help me out a lot.

Susannah said...

Clay~ "and Americans no longer have jobs, the healthcare bill won't have any money."

There's an old Southern saying, "You can't get blood from a turnip." What you've said here is exactly what that means!

JL~ EXCELLENT! I know you're very active online. Do you use Twitter? I've had an account for a while, but just started using it for this purpose. I'm committed to posting there every day, using Dick Morris' tenets. I've been posting @ Leftist/liberal hashtag groups (#maddow, #DNC, etc.) to get the word 'to the other side.' I'm trying real hard not to be offensive, so that maybe 'those people' will get the message! It's all we can do, right?

More power to ya, my sista!

RWL~ "it's gonna take work and it's gonna be messy."

Yes & yes...Maybe a lot of both. Hang tough.

AOI~ Whew! Feel better?
"This moodiness has also led to me not blogging near as much as I have in the past."
Hang in there. We all know how you feel.

Maybe your moodiness has affected your word choice, too, b/c of the frequency of expletives, which I don't use here. I understand the wish to choose such, & they are certainly warranted. But next time you visit, please do consider the sensibilities of other visitors (& your hostess) & refrain. And DO visit again. Thanks! ;)

RisR~ Absolutely, completely, without question, 100% AGREED. Good to see you.

PSI~ And that's just the tip of the iceberg...Glad you came by.

USA~ Indeed. Good to see you!

Mal~ There's another Southern saying that applies here (it's also on my sidebar): "When you kill the cow for a quick stead, there ain't no more milk, folks!"

6. The likelihood of a $1,700 increase in the average family's premiums.

Without a public option that sounds about right.
