Skip to comments.Dems health care plan: Like eating an excrement sandwich
Posted on 08/06/2009 10:42:46 AM PDT by Zakeet
Imagine U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley walking into a diner in his home state of Iowa during the August congressional recess. He visits with a few of his longtime constituents, then sits down in a booth and orders the special of the day, a meatloaf sandwich. When the waitress brings it to him, it looks fine at first glance, but then he starts to notice a foul odor coming from his plate. He looks around and sees others eating the same meal, and so he picks it up to take a bite. The odor grows stronger, so he pulls apart the pieces of bread, only to discover that instead of meatloaf, he has been served a sandwich filled with excrement!
Horrified, he calls the diner owner over to his booth and demands to know the meaning of this. The diner owner looks at the sandwich, shrugs, picks up a bottle of ketchup, dumps it on the contents of the sandwich and says, "Try it now."
As outrageous as this scenario sounds, it is exactly what Grassley and a few other Republican senators are accepting in the debate over "reforming" the American health care system. Democrats are serving up an excrement sandwich in the form of a massive government-controlled health care boondoggle that is as offensive to the American people as anything to come out of Washington in many a decade. It is a federal power grab on a scale none of us have seen in our lifetime. It will destroy the greatest health care system in the world, while driving up costs and rationing care.
In short, it will transform us into Canada or Great Britain, and the American people know it.

Great question for RINOs posed in the Article: At a time when the country is rallying behind the GOP claim that this legislation is a toxic mix of unacceptable rules, regulations, mandates, rationing and limitations from a government that can't even run the post office or administer a program whereby they give away free money for buying a new automobile, why give the Democrats political cover on ObamaCare?
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.

...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
What a great article. Someone should send it to Grassley and the other RINOs who are “working with the Democratic majority to come up with an acceptable compromise.”
I believe the Republican party will sell us down the river.
You can bet your sweet rear end that the ruling elite won't be dining with the rest of us.
The GOP has the perfect opportunity to stand tall, stand with the majority of American people against this plan and kick some rats out in 2010, yet they are letting obama and his Chicago gang intimidate them. They are a pathetic excuse for representatives.
