ABC News: Obama Seeks to Vilify Health Insurers, Give Them $336 Billion Check
http://www.breitbart.tv/ ^ | March 8, 2010

Posted on 03/08/2010 4:22:03 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

ABC News: Neither [President Barack Obama or HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius] mentioned that the Senate health reform bill, which is the basis for Democrats' last best chance at comprehensive reform, would give the insurance companies millions of new customers required by law to buy health insurance.

It would also require insurers to cover everyone, regardless of age, gender or pre-existing condition.

To help pay for the new insurance requirements the government would give to people money to buy insurance - $336 billion over the next ten years.

That money, ultimately, would have to go to... drum roll... insurance companies.

I have a hunch that the rate increases seen lately from the insurance companies are part of a campaign to pass the health-care bill. I believe they are in cahoots with Obama.

Well, that drum roll is news to a lot of people who think the “left” support Obamacare and that Obamacare is “Socialist” etc.

A lot of them are business cultists, they cannot imagine large private entities do not work for their own best interests.

I’m confused.

Liberals say insurance companies are evil because people pay them for their services but they’re heroic if government forcibly takes money and gives it to them?

"pre-existing condition"

So, a person can wait until they get a serious sickness, sign up then and the insurance company HAS TO insure them.

What a deal.

would give the insurance companies millions of new customers required by law to buy health insurance

If the Senate put in a clause requiring us all to buy 3 Nine Inch Nails CDs each year would that be constitutional?

How about a Chevy Van? Or maybe Al Gore's DVD and book. Surely the Supreme Court would realize that all of these things benefit society and therefore are "good" and so whatever the Constitution actually says can't really be that important. Some things are just more important than the Constitution. Obamacare and Nine Inch Nails CDs for example.

I have been posting this for days, Facism at work. Wake up folks, Barry has already bought the insurance companies. Why do you think they are not fighting this out loud? Barry goes out and flames them, but they don’t care. He did this to the banks too. This stuff is getting old and it is so obvious.

By the way, they will get screwed in the end.

“He doesn’t care where it goes.”

Of course he cares. It is to go to private insurers, always the plan, and they kick back a percentage as “campaign contributions”.

This Healthcare Legislation is absolutely the Stupidest, Most Corrupt, and Most damaging Legislation ever proposed and or passed into Law! It will destroy Our Excellent Healthcare System of which 85% of Americans are very Satisfied with their Insurance and Care NOW! and will Destroy AMERICA!! Both are Prime Objectives that Obama HUSEEIN has set in “HIS” AGENDA to destroy AMERICA! First it was Nationalizing the Banks, then He destroyed Our U.S. Auto Industry, now its Our Healthcare System and next Nationalization of All Student Loans, then AMNESTY for All Illegal ALIENS, and then He will Open the Gates to allow Mass Migration of Millions of MUSLIMS to guarantee his Dictaorship for Good...:-( CRY AMERICA!! You are about to be Destroyed! Just as Michelle HUSSEIN promised during the Campaign!...........:-(

Privatize profits, socialize costs. Use government to increase private profits.

Why would insurers need to be “coerced” into that?

Listen to the words of Jed Brandt, the bald communist from the clip Beck showed.

Brandt lays it all out that they want to cause as much discomfort as possible and bring America down. Obama is following that exact model.

Obama’s birth credentials legitimately call into question his constitutional right to be President. When will he be proven to be foreign born or not in a court of law? I believe

Obama is an imposter

who should either cooperate with the investigation of his actual birth and/or be removed.

Sorry, had to put the kiddo to bed. From benshapiro.com...

Which is why he’s now writing the health care bill. Everyone seems to have overlooked one little problem in the details of his new legislation, which raise taxes in several places: in nationalizing one-sxith of the US economy, he is now originating legislation, a practice prohibited by the Constitution. Here’s what the Constitution says in Article I, Section 7:

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

How exactly does this translate into President Obama stating this today on the WhiteHouse.gov website?

Over the past year the House and the Senate have been working on an effort to provide health insurance reform that lowers costs, guarantees choices, and enhances quality health care for all Americans. Building on that year-long effort, the President has now put forth a proposal that incorporates the work the House and the Senate have done and adds additional ideas from Republican members of Congress.

Never mind the lies here (it is a lie that he has incorporated “additional ideas from Republican members of Congress”). Focus instead on the massive arrogance it takes to grab two separate bills and unify them under the executive rubric. This is not what the framers intended. But of course, Obama doesn’t give a damn about that. His is an imperial presidency, pure and simple. And he wants us to be his subjects.
