Obamacare On Life Support...

The government takeover of health care seems to keep rearing its ugly head. I thought after Sarah Palin's brilliant FaceBook message referring to the "end of life" counseling and inevitable rationing of elderly care as "death panels" was a fatal blow. But even with support all the way down to 42%, and I even think that is overstated, Democrats keep pushing this crap forward.

If you find yourself on the fence, here is one more nugget to consider. One of the big reasons Obama and his henchmen are pushing this is that they see it as a foot in the door to socialized medicine (complete government control of all health decisions and expenditures). There is ample evidence, and in their own words, affirming this truth. They will force everyone to take government insurance (think medicare or medicaid). This will eventually destroy the private insurance industry as they cannot compete against a government (taxpayer) subsidized entity. The end result is everyone will pay EVEN MORE for Obama's crappy government plan.

Why do I call it crappy? Ask a poor person, a health care provider or an elderly person and they will let you know.

Now, one of the ways Obama has sold this garbage is that it would save $$$ and stop the "profiteering" of "big insurance companies." Excuse me?

The top 10 health insurers COMBINED earned profits of just over $8 Billion. Let that number sink in for a tic.

Medicare FRAUD in the USA cost you and me $60 BILLION last year. And that's for about 45 million Medicare victims. Probably half of those $$$ went to ACORN and/or funded Obama's election, but I digress.

How in the wide, wide, world of sports will that number not increase a hundredfold when you force another 200 million people to suffer with some bureaucratic government boondoggle of an insurance plan?

Here is the source article: Annual Medicare Fraud: $60 Billion; Annual Profits of Top Ten Insurance Companies: $8 billion

Say it once again, loud and with feeling:
