Please STOP the Obama “Health Care” Plan!
For the first time in MY life, I am terrified of a US President. Mr. Obama operates as a communist system does: with utmost secrecy, ruthlessness, and godlessness. That surreal fact provides me with a unique experience every day.
Remember what happens when you are filled with dread and horror? A chill starts at the head and quickly floods down the whole body. In a moment, you are covered with tingly goose bumps.
I experience that scared, shivering feeling every day now, when I realize how horribly un-American and anti-democracy are all the fundamental changes this president has made in our nation—-in only seven months! It will take YEARS for a hard-working, ethical president to undo those changes, if that’s even possible. Worse, he hopes to accomplish even more radical changes in our republic, through his expensive and unethical “health care” plan!
Look, I’m not being paranoid or dramatic; our national situation is really THAT AWFUL. See, I pay closer attention to politics than most Americans do, because our family must: we are ALL disabled:
– I fight 23 health conditions—-arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, etc.—-by following a very strict diet, exercising vigorously for 60 minutes DAILY, and taking three very toxic and amazingly expensive medicines.
– Our sons experience autism. They must be monitored 24/7 and require expensive treatment.
– My husband has a form of dementia—-and he’s only in his late fifties.
Although our health insurance covers many of our expenses, our family’s non-covered medicines and treatments still cost $1200/month or more… so far….
Now we find that the Obama “health care” plan will “restrict enrollment of the disabled.” And because this plan won’t allow employers to bargain for lower prices, they won’t be able to compete with the low prices the huge government plan can get. This will cause employers to dump their health insurance coverage.
No wonder I just got goose bumps again….
But beyond our family’s needs, I wonder: why won’t Obama’s plan let hospitals add additional facilities to care for a growing population? Does he have information which predicts that our population will NOT grow? Or will certain populations be left untreated medically, causing them to die!?
And why does Obama advocate a “health care” plan that allows the government direct access to our bank accounts? Think of all the mistakes government workers make, just with managing the present welfare system! Oh great: our bank accounts might be mistakenly raided or muddled!
All in all, the Obama plan does NOT promote “health care;” it is nothing less than a complete power grab. If it’s voted in, the plan will allow the government to make sure MY family is history—-and perhaps yours, too. See, if you aren’t now, someday you will likely become disabled or elderly, too.
Work HARD to make sure Obama’s Deathplan is NOT enacted!
Call your members of Congress NOW, and promise that, if they support Obama’s costly, deadly “health care” plan, you will NOT vote them into office again. Nothing worries them more.
