"As you may already be aware, especially if you are a regular listener of the Mark Levin program (which is where I heard about it), the director of the Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Elmendorf, delivered devastating testimony that the ObamaCare legislation now being proposed will not include "the fundamental changes that would be necessary to reduce the trajectory of federal health spending by a significant amount," as reported by the Washington Post."
"'On the contrary,' he said, 'the legislation significantly expands the federal responsibility for health-care.' Mr. Elmendorf says the cost curve is being raised instead of cut, breaking a promise made by Barack Obama and Democrat leaders to cut the growth in spending of health care programs with a "deficit-neutral" government-run health care proposal."
Oh and congress won't have to take the "free" coverage that isn't free and isn't any good. And the Dems want to fund abortions with this government funded health care. I would like to know since when is killing babies for any reason "health care"? And why should tax payer money go to fund abortions when 51% of the taxpayers don't believe abortion is a good thing?
And since when is going bankrupt over medical bills the worse thing that can happen to someone. Government shouldn't be responsible for our bankruptcy prevention when it comes to high health care/hospital bills by giving everyone tax payer funded health care. Government isn't responsible and should not be responsible to anything other than safety of the US from inside and outside enemies. Someone made a comment the last time I posted on the ridiculousness of government sponsored health care and said that government giving free health coverage would prevent bankruptcy. Notice I didn't quote this comment because I didn't re-type it exactly, just gave the jist of the comment, the essence so to speak.
Since when did we as Americans decide that everything is the government's responsibility thus shirking our own? I do the same, shirk responsibility, that is, at times anyway. I realize we as Americans need to stop and take responsibility back from the government. The problem is that when government steps in, good people step out. Good people that would help others in times of financial crisis and need.
It is not the government's responsibility to make sure people have health insurance or for what insurance should or shouldn't pay. This scheme is going to harm our economy more than any other. Companies can't carry the burden nor can the majority of those making $200,000 or more by taxes.
On the far left side in the picture above, do you see the thick red arrows? That is the funding of the whole health care scheme. It is coming from companies mostly. Companies will not employ people if they must pay higher taxes or be forced to contribute more on health insurance. That will cause more unemployment! It is all crazy! We need less government. We need to learn to take responsibility and if that means downsizing inorder to pay our duly owed bills or leaving off the extras in our lives then sobeit. Bankruptcy due to high medical bills will not kill anyone.
If the government hadn't stepped in the first place more hospitals and doctor's offices would be more willing to work with people struggling to pay for their medical bills. Again, get the government out, take responsibility, call your representatives and tell them to stop the idiobama care nonsense.
