ObamaCare endorsements: What the bribe was
The Hill ^ | 11/09/09 | Dick Morris

By Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

As the suicidal Democratic congressmen proceed to rubber-stamp the Obama healthcare reform despite the drubbing their party took in the ’09 elections, the president trotted out the endorsements of the AMA and the AARP to stimulate support. But these — and the other endorsements — his package has received are all bought and paid for. Here are the deals:

Entertaining article ~ now, to correct some obvious errors.

No, AARP is NOT an advocacy group that's morphed into an insurance company. In fact, it's kind of the other way around ~ it's a group of "independent" Insurance executives who've moved from company to company who set up AARP for the purpose of peddling whatever insurance they happen to have a commercial and/or employment interest in. You lawyers out there, think "shell corporation".

In short, AARP is a corrupt practice that should be shut down and its participants sent to federal prison for eternity.

The other serious flaw is the failure of the writer to move beyond the question of the penalty for not purchasing insurance. Go one step beyond and find the individual who purchased insurance AND MISSED ONE MONTHLY PAYMENT. That individual will be subject to fines as high as $250,000 and a 20 year prison term.

You have to watch what the Democrat bill is discussing ~ is it an "individual" or is it someone who is part of a group, or who gets insurance through their employer.

The penalties on individuals for missing ony one payment are, to say the least, DRACONIAN ~ evil in fact.

What is it about these Democrats that they think it suitible to punish artists, musicians, independent automobile mechanics, family farmers, ...... anyone who works for himself?

Are the Democrats simply drunk with power, or am I supposed to assume my local Congresscritter, Gerret (Jerry) Connolly (Canoli)_ is a mad man to be avoided at all costs?

I think the answer lies in simply imagining Gerret's lawmower guy. He's self-employed. He pays his taxes. He's going to end up getting health care insurance from somebody (because, as it turns out, there are risks to mowing lawns professionally).

His work is also seasonal. Far be it for someone like Gerret Canoli go pay this guy when there's no grass to cut!

So, let's say the lawnmower guy gets hurt, and he's in the hospital strung up on wires like a crown roast, and he misses paying his monthly medical insurance bill.

Gerret just voted to fine his lawmower guy $250,000 and sending him to federal prison for 20 years.

Way to go Gerret ~ you are certifiably mad, and EVIL.

It’s about power and control, and the best interest of Americans be damned. The elderly who supported Obamao and the Pelosicrats are going to be hurt the most. Most of them think they are going to be better off, little knowing that they’ve just been relegated to second-class citizens bound for an early grave. This is why the NeoCommies are holding off on implementing anything until after the 2012 elections. By then they hope to be entrenched enough to eliminate the democratic process.

I don't think so. There is a core of rats like P and Waxman tho can do anything and get a pass because the people who vote for them don't consider anything but how they feel and who they identify with. It takes years to change identifier politics.
