Analysis: Is this the 'change' voters believe in?
« on: March 23, 2010, 08:07:58 PM »
WASHINGTON — Love or hate the country's new health care policy, this much is indisputable: President Barack Obama accomplished a breathtaking feat that had eluded other presidents.

He persuaded a deeply divided Congress to pass sweeping legislation remaking one-sixth of the U.S. economy. He did it in a hypermedia world in a hyperpartisan city that he barely knew, that most people detest. He did it without most Americans supporting the plan.

But most of all, he brought change — as promised. But is it the kind Americans want?

Voters who complained they were sick of the status quo must now decide whether this is — to borrow Obama's campaign motto — the change they believe in.

The above is quoted from the article below.  Click the link to read the whole thing. 


My comments: 

Obama has made a huge change in this country at the expense of our hope.  I'm self-employed and I haven't been able to afford medical insurance since 1999 when my monthly premiums skyrocketed from $250 per month to over $450 per month in a 2 year period.  I've gone "naked" with no health insurance at all because I still can't afford it, for over 10 years.  This stupid health care bill will require that we buy the health insurance that we can't afford or we have to pay a fine.  That's completely unconstitutional, so my state of Florida and many other states filed a lawsuit against the new law today. 

Do you have health insurance through your employer?  It's bound to become more expensive in the future, not less expensive as Obama has said.  Do you think your employer will keep the health insurance for you?  I don't think so because it will be cheaper for them to pay the fine and force you buy your own or you'll have to pay a fine also.  If a public health insurance option becomes available, your employer will drop yours so you can buy that.  Employers will do the least expensive thing for their business. 

Do you think you'll be able to keep your current doctor?  I doubt it because doctors are doing to quit and do something else when their income is cut by this new law. 

Do you think healthcare will become less expensive and more readily available?  No, it won't.  Canada and England are the models for this socialistic new law.  They have to wait months/years to get the care they need, if the government thinks they deserve to live at all.  If you're too old or if your disease is terminal, you can forget about getting care for it. 

Lastly, this new healthcare law is the largest government take over in history and it's 1/6th of our economy.  Our economy is going to get worse now, not better.  Name one government program that runs well and that saves money efficiently!  There isn't one.  Social Security is broke, as are the current government healthcare programs, Medicare and Medicaid.  This law is the worse thing that could possibly happen and I hope the Supreme Court finds it as unconstitutional as it really is.
