government destruction of healthcare

i am out of my mind with this healthcare crap that's going on. of course healthcare costs are exorbitant, and of course something needs to be done, but what on earth makes people think the government should step in and socialize medicine? honestly, what does the government do that is efficiently run, that saves money, and that really improves life? need we look any further than the dmv or the irs to see their handiwork?

the idea that obama's plan is likely to pass has me crazy. we are going to be living in a country where healthcare is sub-par at best, where taxes are crazy high, and where chaos is going to prevail. i firmly believe americans are going to suffer and die if this plan becomes law.

i keep hearing all these people who i know have good hearts and want everything to be fair and everyone to have what they need talk about how important this is. sure, i want all people who work for it to have access to quality care. did you catch that -- people who work for it. unless a person is handicapped, he or she should be paying taxes, working, and contributing to their own care. children should have the care they need, obviously.

go ahead and call me heartless, but i am absolutely against the president's plan because it amounts to this -- hardworking americans who obey the rules, who support themselves, and who pay taxes are going to end up footing the bill for this enormous government hemorrhage of money that is going to create a failed system in the near future. and we will be paying for illegal immigrants, who refuse to obey the rules and who don't pay taxes, to get medical care. no, sorry, it's not a right. argue away, liberals, but healthcare is not a right.

i am totally in favor of people immigrating to this country, as long as they do it according to the law and then work and pay taxes like everyone else. period.

and what really, really sticks in my craw is that obama and the democrats are foaming at the mouth to pass this plan because it means tax-payer funded abortions. is anyone even thinking about that? i haven't heard it mentioned much on the news, but that is what is at the root of this whole thing -- forcing all of us to pay for abortions (or 'reproductive rights' as the libs want to call it.) bull crap.

one step closer to socialism. i want to hear from anyone reading this who disagrees with me -- and i know you're out there. i want to hear from anyone who voted for obama and still backs his drive to march our country away from liberty and capitalism. i honestly want to understand what goes on in your minds as you are watching this unfold.

Come on, be honest, tell us how you really feel! :) I know you want to be one of those who sit around doing nothing and get everything for free, meanwhile, those who actually work for it, lose more of it, putting more out there who need it, and eventually no one has anything. Oh wait, isn't that how it works already?

Right behind ya chica, of course you know this. Just one question, why do you love Obama so much? :) Maybe I'll pretend to think opposite just for the mere fact, I like all your fun opinions and I LOVE how you express them. Soooo much better than I could do myself.

Oh yeah, adding to frustration, how about being a homeowner whose home value went down, and taxes up, WHAT???? How's that work? Oh yeah, and all the multi-million dollar homes whose prices went down, those taxes stay the same? WHAT????? Seriously, what is going on????

Great post, Julie!
Did you hear what a Congressman from GA said (don't remember his name) about the rush that Obama is putting on getting this healthcare bill passed? He said he thinks it deserves more time to be discussed and thought about carefully. It took Obama SIX MONTHS to decide the kind of puppy he wanted to get for his family, but he wanted this bill signed in SIX DAYS!!!!
I think that, whenever someone is in so much of a rush, it's usually because they're afraid people will have time to catch on to the negatives.
Can we, as law abiding American taxpayers, do ANYTHING to stop this madness?
