Skip to comments.(Vanity) Suggested Questions for the Town Hall, or, Barack Obama and the Deathly Hollows
Posted on 08/05/2009 10:16:08 PM PDT by grey_whiskers
Here are a list of calm, reasoned, embarrassing quesations to ask your
parasitic whore Congresscritter during your next Town Hall meeting.
Be polite, earnest, and respectful.
1. It was stated in 1965 by Ted Kennedy, in his Immigration and Naturalization Services Act, that "...our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset..... How do we have any confidence the predictions for this> bill will be any more accurate?
2. According to Reason magazine, "The House Ways and Means Committee estimated that Medicare would cost only about $ 12 billion by 1990 (a figure that included an allowance for inflation). This was a supposedly "conservative" estimate. But in 1990 Medicare actually cost $107 billion." How can we be sure the current bill won't turn into the same boondoggle (even the Congressional Budget Office is calling B.S. on Obama's numbers.)
3. The current bill pays for abortion on demand. Will it include a freedom-of-conscience provision for hospitals to exempt them from paying for it?
4. If not, how do you expect to make up for the shortfall of doctors and hospitals when they quit?
5. The current bill pays for abortion on demand. Would this bill have forced Sarah Palin to abort her youngest child, Trig?
6. This bill pays for abortion on demand. Will it pay for other elective procedures such as tummy tucks, teeth whitening, botox, and breast implants?
7. This bill pays for abortion on demand. Given the emphasis on cost containment and prevention, will there be mandatory sterilization of patients who present with three or more pregnancies for abortion in a two-year period?
8. Will this bill cover in-vitro fertilization? For how many attempts, and for how long?
9. Will this bill allow patients to consult with their doctors about using different drugs with similar functions to avoid side effects?
10. How often will this bill review accepted medical treatments for unforeseen side effects (Celebrex, Thalidomide)?
11. How will malpractice be handled? Did you make sure the trial lawyers still get to sue everyone?
12. You have spoken extensively about greedy insurance companies. What is the lifetime deductible and the lifetime limit on benefits? Is it per person or per family?
13. Which pre-existing conditions will be covered, and for what period of time? It does not seem fair to exclude the obese (as has been suggested in Great Britain) but to allow (say) diabetics.
14. Will medical marijuana be covered? What FDA group will handle guarantees of purity, safety, and efficacy?
15. What about methadone and other treatments for narcotic addictions?
16. Will this affect intellectual property rights for pharamceuticals?
17. Will medial tourism (say to Mexico or India) be made illegal?
18. Will the plan cover smokers? Will it cover diabetics? What about sexually transmitted diseases? What guidelines will be put in place to reduce the prevalence of these conditions over time, in order to reduce costs?
19. Will AIDS be covered? How about domestic partners of homosexuals?
20. Will burial or cremation be covered?
21. Will Americans be allowed to participate in the same health plan as Federal Goverment employees?
22. Will Americans be allowed to participate in the same health plan as Congress?
23. Will we at least get health care as good as the terrorists in Guantanamo?
24. Will hospitals still be obligated to provide emergency room care for free to all comers?
25. How do we know our health records won't be pawed through like Joe the Plumber's private records? When was the last time a government bureaucrat lost their job over unauthorized snooping into health records?
26. In 2007, the British government LOST the private data on all British families with a child under the age of 16. How can we have the bureaucrat burned at the stake, drawn and quarterd, hung, fed to the lions, and then REALLY hurt who does this to our data -- note I say "when" not "if".
27. What guarantees do we have against our private data being sent to a Third-World country for processing "to save costs"?
28. How will you protect our private data against identity theft?
29. A June study out of the George Washington University Medical Center says that 10% of the ENTIRE cost of Medicare is fraud: and 80% of that is health care providers. Given that this program is even larger, how can we be sure we are not just pouring money into the pocket of some Congressman's brother-in-law?
30. Is mental health covered under this bill? Because you guys are just freaking NUTS !!
Sorry, I just couldn't help it.
Thanks for the ping!
Gee, aren’t we supposed to report this to the White House? I bet they want to send the IRS to see you or something for exercising your constitutional right to free speech.
Great! I think this is how it should be done!
It will be called the Department of Organ Acquisition, or D.O.A. /sarc>
You *don't* want a visit from them.
Your body is NOT your own. It belongs to the ONE. He will decide to dice you up, slice you up, and sell you by the pound. Let all those women who say “get your hands off my body” remember the ONE when they come for their parts.
Why in the world would the government want to take something completely over when they can regulate and tax the hell out of it anyway?
It's a good question to get the public thinking.
DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT BE POLITE, RESERVED OR RESPECTFUL.
That is exactly what the democrats the last two days have been pushing for in the media. To get us to not show our feelings of anger and rage.
YELL AT THEM IN THE STREETS, IN THE MEETINGS.
AND DO NOT LISTEN TO THOSE WHO SAY BE POLITE.
In other words they are asking us to be like sheep as we are lead to the slaughter.
YELL AND SHOUT! MAKE BIG SIGNS,
Where in the Constitution is Congress given the authority to create government run health-care?
Will there be mandatory organ donation after death to increase availability of organs for transplant and to decrease costs?
If not in the current bill, it certainly seems in line with the thinking of the ‘government knows what’s best for you crowd” and is just a vote in Congress away.
