Skip to comments.Sen Roberts: Obamacare Bill includes the end of Medicare and TRICARE
Posted on 07/16/2009 12:49:05 PM PDT by pabianice
Senator Pat Roberts on CSPAN-Senate channel now. Claims the Obamacare Bill ends both Medicare and TRICARE by making reimbursements so low that no doctor or hospital will be able to afford to provide it through a bill no one has had the time to read. Claims Obamacare will end ALL other health care options by also purposefully and maliciously undercutting all private plans. Pure Stalinist medicine.
It's clear why Obama and Pelosi are freaking-out and trying to get this passed before the end of July. If congresspeople go home and get an earful of their constituents' anger they'd never come back and vote for it.
Roberts: "Wake-up, seniors! Wake up, AARP! Wake up, National Hospital Association! This is your medical care and Obama is taking it away from you!"
We all knew this was the plan.
I have been fighting this bill, but who can fight as fast as Obama can push. It is sickening. I wish that man would get a real grip on what bad he is doing to our country, our seniors, our businesses and our children. He is totally evil.
I am not sure I want AARP to wake up. I think they are against seniors not supporters of them.
AARP is just a left leaning money making commercial enterprise these days.
Obama knows what he is doing. He wants to destroy this country and fast.
You need to go to the Planned Grandparenthood Clinic and just DIE. Sincerely, Obama
He has a grip. His agenda is the destruction of the America he hates.
Amazingly some have yet to grasp this fact and I do mean fact. There is precisely zero chance that you are wrong about this.

Anyone ready for civil unrest yet? NO?
Then good , you;ll get Obama care and worse down the road. Lets just sit here and watch it happen..GOOD IDEA !
Truly, I think Obama literally wants to kill off as many conservatives as possible through this bill. Certainly those who remember the Glory of what America was.
And he has also fooled the liberals who are pro-abortion and who stupidly supported him. Making it easier for them to kill their babies results in the possibility of fewer to oppose him in the future. Since most of us are white, Christian, and love America, he is doing away with us one way or another. That will leave an America he can control. The Black dependants on govt. programs who he has hoodwinked, the Muslims who live here or will come here and who hate America and to whom he has bowed, and the anti-American terrorists like Bill Ayers who have backed him.
. . . and turn over all of your Social Security money to the government.
Well, sort of. What you have described will not be America. What we now recognize as these United States of America won't be in existence then and will not deserve to be known as the United States of America. I don't know what it should be called but it certainly won't be the America we know and love.
No legislation moves that fast. You have time. Calm down - then go get a few thousand of your best buds and hit the street loudly in front of the Capital.
I have never been more convinced of that fact than I am now.
I doubt they could make any change that fast, or at least before the new FY begins on 1 October
But then, I always doubted that America would become a marxist collective in my lifetime
AARP, the National Hospital Association and the AMA have all been bought off -- their power and presence assured in "the new regime".
So, basically, it's up to the seniors. Obamacare will repeal Medicare.
Seniors need to understand that, from being the assured recipients of the finest medical care in the world, we'll go to being the ones who are denied care. Our care will be rationed so that the system can lavish its benefits on, e.g., illegal aliens.
Obama knows exactly what he's doing. He is re-making the country into a penniless one-party utopia -- a fate it deserves, in his mind -- where he holds supreme power.
Yes, and we all doubted we would have Obama as president. Good Lord what a mess this country is in now.
I think we will win this one. Constituents already pissed, and CBO says it is a disaster.
OMG What bastards
Rep. Shadegg now on Fox. Reports that Obamacare has been rammed through two more committees in past 12 hours. May be no way to stop it.
I'm a recent retiree and am enrolled in Tricare Prime since my Primary Care Manager is 70 miles away and the nearest base is 200 miles away.
I was just told Healthnet, the administrator of Tricare North just lost the contract in a closed bid from Aetena. Now Aetena, in an effort to cut costs, will eliminate most Prime users. However, they say Active Duty Prime members and wounded warriors will not be affected. So, that leaves 177,000 affected retirees.
Former Prime members will be converted to Standard in April 10. And to further align with the adminitration’s intentions, copayments, and deductibles will be raised. So, there's no reason to pass a law. Just use the closed bid process and demand “change”.
So this is what our warriors get for serving this country? Sacrifice and get shafted.
Isn't it disgusting when all we have planned can be swept away so secretly by one man's ambitions and ego?
