TBD on Ning


The Health Care Reform Bill that narrowly passed the House of Representatives is now being considered by the Senate. The following are quoted excerpts from the House version that was sent to the Senate. Read them and it will be crystal clear why President Obama is insisting that the
Senate pass the bill before they leave on a Congressional vacation.

Although he admitted at a White House press conference yesterday on July 22, that he had not "read the bill", it is obvious his advisors are afraid that if the Senators go home before voting on it and the people find out what is really in it, that it will not pass.

These are direct excerpts from the House version ....

Your post was a very long rant I may have skipped some of it .
Kathy, I've listened to Obama and what he says doesn't always go with what he does. We pushed the stimulus package through and then found out it was used to pay for bonuses. Why can't Obama be more patient and let everyone read it this time? Why can't we make changes now, before it is passed? What's the rush? He still has 3 1/2 yrs in office. Let us be sure this is what we want and not have regrets afterward.

My husband is from Holland and he says that all the problems we will have with it is true such as: long waiting list; productivity/age selection which means that productive people will be treated as a priority as to retired or poor unproductive individuals; quality of care is less expensive, but there will be no choice of hospital or doctor; no choice in medications, because the doctor will prescribe brand or generic or even just an over-the-counter remedy; if you are overweight and realize that you need a knee replacement you will be told that you must lose weight first and we all know how hard that is and yet you can't loose weight because it hurts to work-out; if you are depressed the doctor may tell you to change your lifestyle - go for walks or swim etc....

Think about it people is this what you want?
Our generation is not old enough to know about the promises made with Social Security benefits, but we do know that we are still paying and there will be little if no money for our generation. Had it only stayed purely for retirement we might have been okay, but what did they do with our parents money and now ours?

I am tired of all the promises, all the cover ups and all the cheating of "we the people" while the gov't gets fatter.
I say go for it. Tired of children dying as insurance companies that only care about their profits and profit margin deny medications that are perfectly appropriate. Our future leaders deserve a future that is healthy. We have to start somewhere...let this be it and move forward.Respectfully agree to disagree. If I truly had it my way I would insure all the children. Skip the adults.Let them figure themselves out. Kids depend on us completely. Let's not shaft them before they have a chance in life.
Hi Kathy, nice to see you here. I don't know of any children who today are without healthcare, do you? I have two grandchildren on medicaid and have no problems getting their needs taken care of. Show me the kids that are going without it. I know for a fact that here in Texas hospitals do not turn away kids. Maybe we need to make some changes, but I truly don't want the gov't to run our healthcare or anything else for that matter.
Either we pay now, or pay a lot more later! The Pres is right, medical decisions should not be based on the fiscal whims of accountants, lawyers, and insurance company doctors with selfish agendas. We the People means everyone, regardless of wheter or not 'I' think it is equitable. The reality is health care cost are through the roof, an so are the profits of the HMO's, and drug companies. Who justify their ridiculous premiums on "your" money "they" invested and lost (like everyone else) in the market. You gamble, you loose; Not you gamble and everyone else has to loose!
So, if "kids depend on us completely" and if we "skip the adults", what happens to the children then? We kind of need both the adults and the children to keep our society afloat. KBeenThere, I don't think you have 'been there'; otherwise, you might rethink what giving up the Constitution, our freedoms, our choices, our privacy would do to our children. So, yes, "let's NOT shaft them before they have a chance in life". Let's let them grow up to know what living in a free country is really like. This kind of health bill is NOT "moving forward" . . . it is taking us back, wayyyyyyyyyy back! IMHO.

What the government wants to do is remove choices, and thus freedoms, from the American people, have further or complete access to our personal lives, and then dictate our lifestyles. We will not be able to sue nurses, doctors or hospitals anymore, because they will, as government employees, be "exempt", so accountability will be even more a thing of the past.

We will also, initially, have physicians leaving their practices en mass (until the older doctors die off and no one remembers what it once was like to have payment commiserate with one's education and experience, and to actually control one's own practice and destiny).

Then socialism will be "acceptable" and unquestioned by the sheep, and the sheep herders will be smiling at their having fooled the American people once again, grooming and choosing a President who is not "for" the people, but actually "against" the people and "for" the government. This government has an agenda alright, and it's not even "hidden". Sad.
The fact that being very heavy could impact something like a replacement knee is pretty much self evident. My doctor, whom I chose, councils me to stop smoking and get more exercise. This is part of his job to be sure, promote a lifestyle that would cost the medical plan here less money..
Then again by following this advice I could live longer, live better and enjoy my life more.
I've been watching this bill being debated on t.v. and it seems that alot of my questions are being debated. Please be in prayer for the Senate as they disect this mess.
The "rush" is that obama is the front man for another man or men the lead guy being George Soros. You think population control is scary....google George Soros.

What's going on is the consolidation of power and money into a few billionaires hands, most of whom are foreigners. What's happening has been planned for a long time. Proof? Follow the money.

Let me play you this scene.....

The banks won't loan money not because they don't have any but because they don't know who can or can't repay. Really? In this age of computers....amazing. So small business, that has driven the economy, can't stay in business without capital, so they cut costs re: as cutting jobs, health care, inventory etc. The ripple effect has consequences as massive layoffs later, the o rolls out his healthcare initiative ostensibly to make sure we're all covered. Read that as to make sure his cronies can force us to take a chip implant and control our lives. Oh yeah, meanwhile the really big business companies are taking bailout money (payola for screwing up the economy) and giving out bonuses(hush money to key players).

Folks money doesn't just disappear, it is transferred from one location to another. Follow the money and you'll see where we're going.

Scary doesn't begin to describe what is waiting on the other side of hope and change you can believe in. Fact is you won't believe it when the hopey changey thing morphs into something else. The alarms were sounded but the most didn't want to hear it. I'm one of the ones who can say "I TOLD YOU SO!"

Are you still hoping for change? Here's what you can look forward to and yes I will be able to say again, "I TOLD YOU SO."

Are you ready? The government bailout for the auto industry seems to be turning things around sooner rather than later. Dems don't have their health plan and we the people are threatening their hopes. So look for the cash for clunkers to suddenly disappear, oops happening already. If the housing market starts to turn for the better then look for that stimulus money to disappear too. Meanwhile back in DC things are still in a stalemate by the time Oct rolls around. Look for the swine flu to be trotted out as making an argument for nationalized healthcare, you ain't heard nothing yet. Oh call me crazy but I think this swine flu could be man made, man released for the dems purposes. Crazy? Remember Soros, a billionaire socialist with buddies of like mind...oh yeah right he's pure as the wind driven snow. Ok enough kool aid. If the swine flu doesn't do the trick the o has a trump card up his sleeve...ready for this one?

With inflation looming on the horizon and our national debt ballooning, look for the o to default on our debt thereby causing a monetary catastrophe the likes of which we've never seen. We don't have enough underwear to change into when this one comes. But the o will have what he wants because when you can't eat, pay your bills, get your meds, drive your car, heat your house, get the medical care you need, and you're tired of burying your older relatives..... You'll accept anything. Don't take it from me folks....you were told so 9 months ago....look where we are. I don't think I'll be around to say it again in 9 months. I'll be too busy trying to survive.....

Oh and you might want to stay out of the cities. When hope and change turns into despair and hopelessness you don't want to be caught day or night in the cities. B_lls__t you say? Is your pulse still beating? Have you read about the increase in gang shootings with "racial overtones", have you seen the increase in desperate robberies? Stick around.....
