Obama Targets GOP in Last-Ditch Pitch for Health Care Bill
Fox News ^ | 3/8/10

Posted on 03/08/2010 11:51:48 AM PST by antidemoncrat

President Obama, launching a last-ditch push to pass health care legislation in the next 10 days, left no doubt Monday that he was ready to roll over any opposition by taunting Republicans that they had 10 years to fix health care and didn't

Mr. President, the healthcare system wasn't too bad until the Progressives overloaded it with people that didn't pay for it...like illegal aliens that get it for free at our expense. It wasn't so bad until the Government would not allow interstate competition of insurers. It wasn't so bad until parasitic lawyers found out they could win multimillion dollar law suites for people that spilled hot coffee in their laps or for someone who had smoked 4 packs a day for 40 years. Neither are these parties really appear to have been interested in the welfare of the American people until the Tea Party came along.

The bill is a bad one. Since the Feds are unable to even protect our borders and deport illegal aliens, I certainly do not trust them with something as complex as our health care system.

Hey, 0bama, most Americans are very happy with their healthcare, which happens to be the best on the planet.

What an arrogant, offensive SOB. There was nothing essentially “wrong” with health care that couldn’t have been handled with some adjustments to the existing way of doing business. But that’s precisely what Bambi doesn’t want, because it wouldn’t hand over absolute power to him.

To hear all those cheering people at these rallies, I am hard pressed to believe these things are not staged with SEIU members who are bussed in. That they can set up one of these town hall meetings on short notice and get only true believers strains credulity.

They didn't have to. When the GOP was in power, people had jobs and assoicated health benefits.

Nice way for him to “reach out” and be bipartisan. Trashing the other side, as always. Then we hear dolts like Rather say he is a “very nice person.” BS. He always struck me as snide.

Have a barf bag before reading Garrison Keillor’s latest column. He refers to 0 as a very kind and gracious man who looks better and better because his opponents are such crude louts. Kind and gracious leaders do not insult and bash their opposition and then say I am reaching across the aisle. What a joke this whole presidency is.

All the jerk knows how to do is campaign...

Barack Obama got downright fiery today, in a speech on health care at Arcadia University in Pennsylvania, lambasting insurance companies for their ever-higher premiums. “They will keep doing this for as long as they can get away with it,” he said. “How many more Americans have to lose their health insurance? …. When is the right time for health insurance reform?”

He also blasted Republicans for playing politics on the issue. “I’ll be honest with you,” he said, voice rising to a fever pitch, “I don’t know how passing health care will play politically, but I do know it’s the right thing to do! It’s right for our families, it’s right for our businesses, it’s right for the United States of America, and if you share that belief, I want you to stand with me and fight!”

Prince oogah boogah doesn't want to "fix" healthcare...he wants to destroy the entire system so that the government can take it over.

Never lose sight that this obamacare is about "power", no your health.

Repubs have been offering him what it will take to "fix" healthcare, but he ain't hearin' it...you'd think with ears that big, he could.

In his speech, Obama also revived his criticism of Washington political culture, something he promised during his 2008 campaign to change with more bipartisan outreach. He said much of Washington is obsessed with “the sport of politics,” and he argued that the short-term focus on elections is hindering his effort to bring about long-term reforms in fields such as health care.

The public is “not worried about the next election. We just had an election,” he said to cheers. “They’re worried about the next pay check or the next tuition payment that’s due. They’re thinking about retirement.”

**The White House: President Obama keeps minding his purple states with his travel this week to sell health care, starting with a morning visit today to the Philadelphia area, to be followed this Wednesday with a trip to one of the ultimate bellwether states, Missouri. Expect to continue hearing the president call for an “up or down vote” in the Senate for his plan, even though the real effort is in getting the votes in the House. The first deadline set by the White House is for that House vote to occur by next Thursday, when Obama leaves for an extended overseas trip.

There are 5 “fixes” to healthcare:

1. Enforce the border
2. Interstate competition
3. Tort reform
4. Encourage private sector job growth, they help cover costs as a perk package
5. Prevention programs (e.g. make kids have gym class)

Obama acknowledged the heavy political lift involved – trying to gain passage of a bill that a majority of Americans do not like or even necessarily understand. But, he said, he will push to pass reform regardless of the political consequences.

Opponents of reform are also pulling out the heavy artillery. A conservative group called the American Future Fund launched a TV ad campaign in the districts of 18 Democratic House members, reportedly at a cost of $900,000. All 18 members voted for reform last November; 11 represent districts won by Republican presidential nominee John McCain in 2008. As the November midterm elections draw nearer, those are among the most endangered Democrats.

After Obama’s speech Monday, Republican leaders fired back. House minority leader John Boehner (R) of Ohio called the president’s pitch “heavy on snake oil, light on reality.”

Republicans are not the issue. It’s the Democratic caucus he needs to bring on board

He should be scolding his own party leaders for failing to deliver the votes. The Democrats controlled the House and had a filibuster-proof supermajority in the Senate and still couldn’t get it done. That’s a huge legislative FAIL by any measure.

Add a massive crackdown on fraud to that list. Medicare and Medicaid fraud alone is estimated to be costing us up to a huge one third of the costs of these programs.
What we need is an agency, with very sharp teeth, preferably private and outside the government, that is charged with the job, and staffed by some of the toughest investigators you can find, who's entire business consists of cracking down on Medicare/Medicaid fraud, who are paid according to how much money they save tax payers. The laws should also be changed so that the organized Medicare?Medicaid fraud outfits who are making billions from ripping off tax payers, can have all their property seized, and face very long jail sentences of up to 30 years in jail.

What he and the press are doing is working. Every liberal in my family thinks it’s the republicans who are hold up the health care bill.

By the way, this isn’t about health care. It’s about getting everyone insurance. You think it’s tough getting in to see a doctor today, wait until the goverment takes over.

I have insurance but my drug bill is 2 to 3 hundred per month in co-pays. So, since I’m a veteran, I thought I’d go out to the VA and get the prescriptions filled there. First of all, they don’t have the one drug I need most. Second, I have to have a VA doctor write the prescription. They won’t accept them from my cardiologist. So I have to make an appointment with a VA doctor. I was told that will take 2 or 3 months. Yeah, government run healthcare!

TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:

http://economicspolitics.blogspot.com/2009/05/tricare-for-life-is-obama-trying-to.html

This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollee’s cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.) http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9925/12-18-HealthOptions.pdf

By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009

Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.

The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.

“President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees” in fiscal 2010, Matz said. “We took them at their word, and I can’t believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward,” he added.
