Charge For No Health Insurance!

November 11, 2009

If President Obama gets his way, you could very well be penalized with fines and potentially even jail time if you don’t buy into health insurance, even if you can’t afford it.

President Obama in an interview with Jake Tapper of ABC news said this: “I think the general broad principle is simply that people who are paying for their health insurance aren’t subsidizing folks who simply choose not to until they get sick and then suddenly they expect free health insurance. That’s — that’s basic concept of responsibility that I think most Americans abide by,” Mr. Obama said, “penalties are appropriate for people who try to free ride the system and force others to pay for their health insurance.”

Later, Obama stated that he didn’t think jail time for those that do not buy insurance is not the “biggest issue”.

America, we are on the verge of having a despotic government that will fine and potentially jail you if you don’t buy something they tell you to buy, when they tell you to buy it and where. THIS IS NOT WHAT THE FOUNDERS INTENDED! They knew firsthand of the tyranny of government when left unchecked. They experienced it from England who was nearly a half a world away. We are right underneath the government’s thumb. We can see the bottom of the slope and it looks eerily similar to Orwell’s 1984. In fact that book is where we glean the phrase Big Brother. Big Brother is the tyrannical government of Oceania that knows everything about its people, tells them what to think and what to do. Sounds like what our government is becoming right?

We have the right to flood D.C. with emails, phone calls and letters telling them to STOP VOTING FOR MORE GOVERNMENT! This health care bill is nothing more than the newest power grab by politicians who are doing nothing but trampling the Constitution. It is completely unconstitutional and they have no power to do so. We need to tell them that if they keep voting for such power grabs they will be kicked out of office come next year. Trust me.

We do not want a government big enough to give us everything. As someone wise once said, “A government large enough to give us everything is large enough to take everything away.”

$2.2 Million per word!

October 29, 2009

According to a recent online document from Politico, the new House bill that has been proposed works out to $2.24 million per word. If the bill costs 894 billion over the next ten years the massive 1,990 page bill would work out to almost two and a quarter million dollars per word.

And this is a good thing why exactly? I’m not that old and I remember a day when a million bucks was a lot of money. But these idiots in Washington are basically printing these bills with gold ink. It’s like they are shooting for a really large number just to impress us. You would think that the tea party movement has spurred them to rethink their commitment to spending large amounts of money. But I guess not. They’re more concerned about appeasing their liberal minds and to heck with the country. Forget that our children and grandchildren will have to suffer through ENORMOUS taxes to pay off this debt. Forget that they are basically selling us out to the Chinese so they can have their precious little health care reform.

Is it not enough that we have nationalized the banks and car companies? Do they want to nationalize health care to? Dumb question. Of course they do. They want complete government control over everything because, doggone it, the free market just doesn’t know how to do anything right. Yeah, about that. Last time I checked, UPS and FedEx are doing a heck of a job better than the post office at delivery.

Liberals and progressives seem as if they are wanting, WANTING to destroy this country through financial ruin. Conservatives are wanting to get us back on track and get us to a more stable place. But if we allow the liberals and Democrats to win again come 2010, we are saying that we don’t really care about the country. We just want our welfare and free health insurance paid for by somebody else.
