Government run health care......

I try not to write too much about politics but this needed to be said.... If you enjoy your freedoms, in this country, you need to see just what will happen if Obama's universal health care plan passes in Congress.... I got this from a friend of mine, Lisa Pippin, and thought it needed to be passed on.


Here are some highlights of the healthcare bill; the more you read, the better it gets. There is a link at the end to the actual bill for those who want to read all 1,000 pages.

Liberty's permeance in American society often makes its manifestations elusive or invisible to those born into it. Even if liberty is acknowledged, it is often taken for granted and its permanence assumed. -Liberty and Tyranny

The following isn't freedom, just another rapid expansion of government.

Hi Lucy -- they already do most of that when you are in a nursing home and need medicade to pay when you have used all your money.
Not a big deal, it protects the government from people hiding their resources and getting medical aid FREE off the rest of us TAXPAYERS.

Lucy, I wouldn't mind so much the state (Alaska) hunting the wolves for food, or even sport. Of course the Indians and Eskimos there can hunt fairly freely.

Rather, they are dumping by airplane a slow acting poison which kills them in a few days.
They make no attempt to clean up the dead wolves, I am afraid that the food chain that eats them will then die or get very serious stomach injuries.
Like our Adi when she had HGE. Only she didn't die, we took her to the emergency animal clinic where they kept her a day plus.

We have a big wild hog problem in East Texas. Right now the farmers are shooting them but they can't keep up. The farmers are NOT using poison as the domestic animals would eat that as well. So East Texas is about to be overrun by wild hogs.
I don't think we should we dump this vile slow acting poison in mass by plane over there, do you?

Who wants to read something really important, something that will destroy individual liberties in such a way as to make America look like we joined the EU? NO, just keep it simple, tell us about how Michael Jackson's doctor drugged him and we will all be happy.

Jim, Here in the Houston area we have a huge park that has been overrun by wild hogs. A group of local hunters had offered to keep their numbers in check; but they were told no. Now the hogs are so numerous as to be a threat to farmers because they have to eat so much. We are talking thousands of hungry critters and the city and county government refuses to let anyone help control them.

Lucy I copied your entire post and sent it to my contacts. What an incredible eye opener. Thanks for posting it.

At 12:13 PM, Blogger Lucy Stern said...

Thanks, Bev.... At least someone is listening.

At 12:56 PM, Blogger Renie Burghardt said...

Lucy, the whole thing is scarrier than heck, and what is even worse, there is not a thing we can do to stop it. Nothing!

Take care!

At 1:37 PM, Blogger Lucy Stern said...

Renie, we call our senators and representatives and we let them know that if they vote for it that we will vote them out the next time they come up for election....Ask them if they are willing to take the cover for themselves and follow the same rules as an average citizen.. I say the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

As bad as the current health care system is, the proposed nationalized HC bill is monumentally worse! I hope and pray it never passes.

At 3:39 PM, Blogger Lucy Stern said...

Diane, we have to do more than pray, we have to open our mouths and tell everyone what this bill is about and then call, write, email, fax our representatives and senators and tell them to NOT vote on this bill or anything near it.

I have one question regarding government run health care. What new, young rising stars will be going into the medical profession? I'm guessing NONE. At least we won't have to worry about paying doctors or regulating doctors because we won't have any qualified doctors.

I got a call from a person in Canada and he said if we really knew what socialized medicine was like there would be revolts in the streets.

At 3:10 PM, Blogger Big Dave T said...

Goodness no, I don't want to read the whole bill. My problem with the present bills circulating in Congress is that they would do nothing to hold down the cost of healthcare. All they represent is a new entitlement program that will cause the costs related to health care to skyrocket, with taxes not far behind.

At 7:22 PM, Blogger Jamie Dawn said...

Thanks so much for posting this. I just copied it and will put it in a Word document. My daughter is currently reading the bill. She has never been into politics... that is until she saw Glenn Beck's TV show. Now, she says to me every day... did you record Glenn Beck?? Let's watch it!
I am going to give her this list so she can look these up, and I will too.
I've been emailing, calling, and writing letters to my senators and my representative Mike Ross. I hope they listen to us!

Thanks Lucy for posting this. I have been following the HC bill debate rather intensely the past couple of weeks and still was not aware of many of the things listed in your post.

Did you know that the White House has asked Americans who support Obama and the bill to more or less snitch on their fellow Americans who have voiced their discontent with the HC bill and perhaps have propagated what the White House considers "disinformation" about the bill and Obama's true intentions?

Here is a link to the White House blog where the following request is made: "There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov. "

This request might be pure innocence and not meant to quell free speech and shut people up, but it sure seems "fishy" to me.

well worth all the money and all the bother if we can get one kid to a hospital or doctor who otherwise wouldn't be able to go

At 9:15 PM, Blogger Lucy Stern said...

Putz - It is not well worth the money they want to spend..... They will drag health care down to the lowest lever for everyone....denying care to some of the ones who need it the most.... People with incurable diseases and altheimers....... What has happened to a respect for life. Putz, download the bill off of the government website and read it for yourself...
