Obama’s Train Wreck TAkes!

The train wreck that is Obamacare

youCanKeepIt

is just getting worse and worse as millions of Americans are beginning to realize that they will no longer have much say in their own health-care, and are seeing their insurance costs rising, if they are fortunate enough to still have health insurance. This will not only affect individual health insurance plans, it will affect everyone’s insurance. It will affect YOU! Obamacare was never designed to let you keep your insurance, or your doctor, if you like them, period. It was designed to take away your options, along with your health-care provider’s options. While you may have had dozens or hundreds of options in the past, we are now faced with a grand total of four choices, which are all basically the same thing, depending on premium and deductibility levels. This whole socialist wet-dream that is Obamacare merely sets the stage to demand that we all will need to ask permission from Uncle Sam to see a doctor, visit a hospital, and he (they) will direct you in all of their wise benevolence as to what sort of care you deserve. Doctors and other primary care providers will be forced into government approved hospital systems, since their government “exchange” payments will not pay the light-bills in private practice.  Those that resist will retire, find something else to do, or… I won’t go there, as much as I’d like. Government approved health insurance, besides being ridiculously more costly for a number of reasons, does not provide better health care, the result will be the exact opposite. Worse health care, lessened privacy, and your health records will be stored and accessed by the government, with the IRS forcing compliance that you must participate in one of their four officially approved plans.

With that said, here’s the latest edition of

Obama’s Government Shut-Down TAkes!

So now the Veterans from the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions have to once again parachute behind enemy lines in their wheel-chairs and walkers,  wielding canes to visit their own WWII Memorial in the National Mall in DC., 70 years after they sacrificed blood and treasure to take Omaha Beach.  Obama is being petulant, vindictive, and imperialistic.  If he doesn’t get his way he is going to deliberately spread the pain around to the people whom he is supposedly serving, in a blatant act of political hypocrisy.

His behavior is nothing more than the childish exhibition of the petulance of a seven year old. Whaah!

An Open Letter To Senator Joe Donnelly

Honorable Sir:  ObamaCare-billboard

During the great healthcare debates of 2009-2010, you consistently stayed away from the fray, and after much hand-wringing, presented yourself as undecided up until the very last minute, when you voted for the ACA. After a little arm-wrestling from Hoyer and Pelosi, no doubt.

What exactly is the definition of a “moderate” Democrat?

A moderate would surely not wish to allow the finest health system in history to be destroyed piece by piece by granting total government control of health care to a bunch of government bureaucrats.The astounding number of thousands of exemptions and waivers granted by this administration should be reason enough to end support for this national travesty.

Businesses are unsure of what the future holds, so they are not expanding or hiring, and/or are converting full-time employees to part-time status.

Physician-owned hospitals are prevented from expanding under this Bill, and no new physician-owned hospitals may be opened. Is this what freedom and liberty is all about? I would say that current Med students will have a clear view that they will be serving at the whim of HHS under the provisions of the ACA.

My dear friend and partner suffered from degenerative hip disease, a genetic condition which deteriorated over time. After much research, she decided to pursue a new anterior approach to hip replacement, which neither Memorial nor St Joseph Hospitals offered. No muscle tissue or ligaments are cut using this method, as opposed to traditional hip replacements. We found one doctor in Kalamazoo, and another in Fort Wayne advertising this procedure, and at the last minute discovered that Unity Medical and Surgical Hospital on Edison Lakes Parkway in Mishawaka also offered this procedure. She had the procedure, was walking within three days, and was back to work in one week, as opposed to months and months of recuperation with traditional hip replacements.

The ACA will put an end to private free-enterprise approaches by physician-owned hospitals like Unity.

I also lost a sister-in-law to stage 3c ovarian cancer a couple of years ago, she made it 5 1/2 years, solely due to participating in three or more clinical trials, A couple of them worked, when she did not respond much to traditional chemo therapies. Sadly, the FDA has not approved these treatments for wide-spread use. While the FDA approval process is a separate issue, stage 3c or higher cancer patients have nothing to lose. I fear that there will be no incentive for these types of treatments under the ACA, especially since our dear President himself said that sometimes it might be better to just take a pain pill [and suffer your fate (paraphrased)].

The good news is, you now have a chance to redeem yourself as my representative in the Senate, and I strongly suggest to vote no on cloture concerning the up-coming Continuing Resolution.

Thank you for your consideration,

Rich

On Defunding, DeLay, and the War On Coal TAkes!

Congress is back in session, the fiscal year ends September 30, and still no budget. Nothing new there, since Obama has been President, there has never been a budget. They are still working on FY2009, which Pelosi and Reid pinned on Bush in the 2009 Omnibus Bill. Yet another CR (Continuing Resolution) Showdown is developing since the House soundly passed a CR which fully funds the government except for Obamacare, which is not now, nor will ever be ready for PrimeTime.

It is time to call both of your Senators now and tell them to
