Once again, as is so often true, Ronald Reagan saw this on the horizon and spoke of this in his many speeches.
I cannot stress this enough. This is the week, Americans! If we stand by and allow it to happen, this is the week that will go down in history as the week our Republic died. Yes, I know...all of the optimists out there will say that the courts will come to the rescue and easily determine this bill to be unconstitutional. I believe they more than likely will, but how many years might that take? How many Supreme Court Justices might have been replaced by Obama appointees between now and the time the Supreme Court finally hears the case? We are talking about years, not months, before they will hear the case.
From an economic perspective, will our nation still exist. The healthcare plan is estimated to be about a trillion (with a "T") dollars. Anyone who researches government estimations of their programs will undoubtedly know that they are never close in their estimates.
When the Social Security Program was being created, it was estimated that payouts in 1980 would be around 4 billion dollars. How close were the politicians? Payouts in 1980 were 108 billion dollars. They were pretty close, huh?
When the Medicare Program was born in 1965, it was estimated that payouts in 1990 would be 12 billion. Actual cost....110 billion!! Does anyone see a trend here? The government tends to be off by about a factor of 10 on their estimates. What does that mean? The socialized government takeover of healthcare will cost the American taxpayer about 10 trillion dollars.
With our current deficit, can the nation bear this burden without our economic system toppling over?
Taxes will be raised on working Americans to support this huge chunk of change immediately, but the program will not begin for at least four years. Hmmmmm. Is anyone else suspicious about where the money might be going for those years? Is anyone still naive enough to think it will be going into some untouchable healthcare savings account and accruing interest for the program's initiation? If you believe it will please Google "where did our social security money go?"
You, and your money, WILL be paying for abortions. Are there any other pro-lifers out their that morally refuse to support this procedure with your earned income?? I know I do!! What shall the government reaction be if a large group of citizens refuse to pay their taxes due to this moral dilemma? All questions we should be asking and considering if this bill is to become law.
I cannot overstate this. THIS IS THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST A TAKEOVER BY SOCIALISM OF OUR REPUBLIC!!! Yeah, I know...a lot of you are saying that I'm overreacting and it's not that big of a deal. That is precisely what the "left" is counting on...for the general population to not engage themselves enough in the issue until it is too late. This plan to convert to socialism did not begin with the election of Barack Obama. It was initiated around the beginning of the 20th century and was anchored into place by programs hatched during the Great Depression. It did not begin with the latest election, but this most certainly is the endgame if they pass this bill.
The government will then own more of the economy of this nation than the private sector, aka, "The People" who are referred to in our Constitution. In 2009, Obama's administration went on an unprecedented seizure of the private sector economy by taking control of Chrysler, General Motors, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and AIG, as well as partial control of Citigroup and Bank Of America, giving the government control of about 1/3 of the nation's economic output. The healthcare industry currently makes up about 15% of the entire economy of our nation, but estimates expect the growing industry to claim 17.7% by 2012. This final seizure by the government of private industry will spell "game over" to capitalism and our fine Republic that many brave men and women have given their lives' to preserve over the years.
We must FIGHT and FIGHT NOW!! Get on the phones!!! If you can work it out get to DC and get in the face of your elected lawmakers and make it clear that you DO NOT SUPPORT THIS BILL OR SOCIALISM!! It is a small price to pay compared to the many who have bled to death on batllefields in far-off lands for hundreds of years to preserve this opportunity for you to serve the nation in a less-dangerous, but equally-important manner. I have listed the link below to the phone numbers of every member of the U.S. House of Representatives...please call and help preserve America as a Republic.
