20/20's John Stossel: "Some in Congress say they are moving closer to a plan that will make health care cheaper, and better? Sounds great. But when government takes charge it can also mean innovation stops and you may not get the breakthroughs and care that you need to save your life."

obviously, the out-of-touch congress has never been to the DMV, or post office or anything else that the government has gotten control of. lines are a given.
You've got to be kidding me! Start "giving" it away, and the local clinic will look like Wal-Mart on Black Friday.
This whole thing is not about Health Care, it is about control, and has been from the start.
Now the dem reps are seeing how upset the people are and they are planning (many of them) to not meet with their constituents. Well, if they cancel the townhalls, then organize and show up at their offices.
We must take the fight to them in their townhalls, or any other venue we can (mail, email, phone, fax, forums,their office, etc.). Hammer them mercilessly with factual data and do not take no for an answer. These reps need to fear the voters, their constiutents, for their political lives more than they fear Pelosi, Reed, or Obama.
Here is a link to the full House Democrat Health Care Plan in PDF. In Section 1233 E & F, pages 426-433, you find the part about mandatory end-of-life counseling for anyone over 65 years of age. Section 152 Page 50: All healthcare services will be provided without regard to "personal characteristcs" which is not defined within the document but is understood to include immigration status.
Section 224 b Page 125: The Secretary shall design and implement the payment mechanisms and policies under this section in a manner that (1) seeks to (B) reduce health disparities (including racial, ethnic and other disparities).
A lot more provisions now being documented at that site.
Donwload it, read it, study it, then hammer your reps over it and pass it on to all you know asking them to do the same.
Also, here's a large image of the Democratic (Obama) Health Plan chart-another Obama empty promise. This is the one the House democrats are censuring. Email these links or the image to everyone you know.
Obama and all those pushing his radical agenda are abject marxist ideologues. Their "fundamental; change" is nothing more than a destruction of the American free market and fundamental republican principle.
UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA - A SONG

...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
Government Run Health Care May Mean Waiting in Line
No fooling. Just like in other socialistic countries
. . . Excerpts: “Would you really like to know what this bunch of underhanded, backstabbing, unprincipled, just downright rotten and morally corrupt slobs are trying to pull on you without your even knowing it?
They pass trillions of dollars of spending bills without even reading them, they bend over and hold their ankles for Obama, they lie, they call good evil and evil good, they go along with the crowd for political expediency and they cant be trusted to do anything but screw up America.”
Well said Charle!

Hi Jeff Head. Hope you and yours are doing well. Check out my link to a blog Charlie Daniels wrote. He is not an Obama fan.
Charlie Daniels is a patriot who would serve this nation in the same office as Obama, if ever put there, immeasurably better than this ringer and quisling, Obama.
Well, mayyyybeeeeee....we just gonna have to all line up and flip up our kilts and show our asses to these healthcare assholes.......
I was stationed at an Air Base in England in 1972.
English citizens could get jobs on the base.
English citizen daily attempted to get those jobs by every means possible including offering bribes to base personnel.
What was the great attraction? Access to the base Hospital.It was a perk of the job that English citizens employed at the base got Base Hospital access. And boy did they want it..
And keep in mind this was back in 1972.
The English medical system is far worse now then it was back then.
I am amazed that citizen in America would so willing allow the Government to destroy the best health care system in the world. The weakness that exists in so many Americans these days is scary.............
I read a portion of some Parliment meeting in England from this year. They were saying how more work needs to be done in healthcare in the outlying counties of England. One example was something like “It is unconsionable that there is a 54 week wait for a hearing test in XYZ county! There is no reason why we can’t get it down to the 2-week waiting period that London sees.”
This is for a hearing TEST!! Two weeks is bad enough - but more than a year!!??? For a fricking hearing test!
If the supposed 47 million people without health insurance are suddenly given government health insurance, mainly without out of pocket cost, they will flood the existing health care system. If no more health care resources are added and under Obamacare some facilities and providers leave the system, long lines are inevitable.
There, fixed it!
Obamacare sounds like “Plantation Health Care” to me.
