Skip to comments.ObamaCare - here's a thought...
Posted on 01/29/2012 8:19:37 AM PST by null and void
If we are going to be stuck with ObamaCare or it's clone RomneyCare, we can salvage some good by requiring the use of the mandatory insurance card as a voter ID card.
Is there any politician out there bold enough to add a voter ID rider to the enabling legislation?
Perhaps the left's fear and loathing of honest elections would be enough to slay this beast?
Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured . . . but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
I’ve got a better idea: Since we’re now in the business of mandating that people buy things, let’s tack on a provision to Obamacare requiring every person over age 21 to purchase a handgun too!
Sweet surrender, that’s all I have to give. This post is a waste of band width. I have a better idea, push the 2nd amendment activate button.
I think of God forbid, Obama gets re-elected and gets to keep ZeroCare and has the mandate(sic) to make his socialist utopian ideal, you will start to see a black-market/underground economy revolve around all the services and goods the government has restricted. This generally happens in most totalitarian States.
That could be done now with a SS card.
It isn't that it can't be done, it's because it won't be done.
Here’s a better idea: REPEAL OBAMA CARE
Use your photo ID at the polling place.
Mitt will NOT, I repeat NOT, repeal O=RomneyCare.
(In before the "take the Mark" comment)
But if the USSC rules Obamacare to be Consititutional (and Newt's not the President to hold judges accountable) I can see us being mandated to see a doctor by the US Government for regular check-ups.
* If you smoke and do not quit you will be refused treatment.
* If you did smoke and you did quit and the minimum number of years do not pass since quitting, you will be refused treatment for that cancer (in the name of balancing the budget).
* We'll need the refridgerer police to make their surprise visits to your home to make sure you're eating healthy and you WILL be mandated to let them in.
Guns will be illegal after a second term of Obama. The US Consitution does not matter to that man.
You are 100% correct, Reagan69...
Mitt will NOT, I repeat NOT, repeal O=RomneyCare
...we can salvage some good by requiring the use of the mandatory insurance card as a voter ID card.If we don't have the votes to repeal Zerocare, we sure as hell won't have the votes to shove Voter ID down the throats of the ever-cheating criminals of the Party of the Single Party State.
That’s the point, the left would either have to slit its own throat by voting for enabling ObamaCare with the voter ID provision, or slit its own throat by voting against enabling ObamaCare altogether...
SS card with picture and thumbprint ....now there is an idea..
Often wondered why SS cards haven’t been updated from being a paper card with a number and name on it to something more secure...
While we’re at it, how about adding “mandatory illegal drug testing”, and if found to have illegal drugs present, you are REMOVED FROM ALL FORMS OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE, including EBT, Welfare, Food Stamps, Educational and Childcare Assistance, etc.?
and/or removal from government office...
ObamaCare = DeathCare = AuschwitzCare; bend over and kiss your rears goodbye.
Better yet, I’ll just sew a yellow star of David on my clothing. The transformation from citizen to persecuted subject will be complete and we will be free to vote for our favorite fascist.
The mandate is indicative of a lawless and rapacious Federal government and justifies the overthrow of the government by any and all means necessary.
I assume “the mandate” you are referring to is ObamaCare, and not voter ID?
Are you against voter ID, or just think we’re screwed no matter what?
I strongly support a valid state driver’s licence (or equivalent state ID, military ID) requirement for voting. But, of course, voting is not mandatory unlike the Federal healthcare mandate.
I do not support a Federal ID for voting because, the Federal government would then probably completely take over the election process.
I think it’s a good idea.
Won’t work, just make things worse. Illegals will have health cards, dontyaknow.
The strawman the left uses to ban voter ID is that po’ [black] folk don’t have no idee about ID.
Requiring the “po’ folk” to have ID for the required medical care would mean that everyone would have ID, and therefore would be able to show it at the polls.
I would insulate against your valid point by authorizing (not requiring) the required photo ID ObamaCare card as a form of voter ID, not the sole form of voter ID. Would that work for you?
Me? I MAKE them look at my federal ID (My passport) before I vote.
That’s a whole ‘nother can of worms.
Perhaps someone more clever than I has a solution?
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, Give me Liberty, or give me Death!"
One can only hope.
Have any of the candidates categorically declared they will repeal obama’s deathcare that you know of? I am not being a wiseguy.
No candidate besides Bacman ever stated they would repeal deathcare that I have heard myself.
Anyone? I’m in florida.
