DC’s old dog liberals now running Congress are coming for your health insurance America – make no mistake. Since the centrists and moderates in the Democrat Party foiled the liberal’s plans to take over the nation’s health care this summer under cover of a rushed bill, the far left has decided to end their stealth plan and go right out into the open.
Their first salvo is an open letter in the House that warns the far left nuts will not support any health plan that does not include a government run, non-competitive priced controlled health care program is included (which will destroy private insurance companies):
We regard the agreement reached by Chairman Waxman and several Blue Dog members of the Committee as fundamentally unacceptable. This agreement is not a step forward toward a good health care bill, but a large step backwards. Any bill that does not provide, at a minimum, for a public option with reimbursement rates based on Medicare ratesâ€”not negotiated ratesâ€”is unacceptable.Â
The last line is clear in its demands. Not free market competition, just government mandated price controls. No negotiation, pure central command directives on what is allowed and what can be paid.
The second salvo out today is the plan to demonize the private health insurance of those 80% of us happily covered. Instead of Health Care being about helping the poor or assisting the uninsured, the truth is now out in the open – the liberals are attacking our private health insurance system with the intent to destroy it:
House Democratic leaders have developed a coordinated strategy for attacking insurance companies to ward off attacks from opponents of their health care overhaul during the August break, according to a strategy memo obtained by The Hill.
â€œRemove the insurance companies from between you and your doctorâ€” capping what they can force you to pay in out of pocket expenses, co-pays and deductibles, and giving you the peace of mind you will be covered for the care you need, if get sick, or if you change or lose your job.â€
What a pathetic joke. Insurance companies OFFER plans with various co-pays and options and deductibles. You have a RANGE of choices in this matter as you are the CONSUMER of the health service. You can even sue for breach of contract. Are the liberals so dumb as to think we don’t know that if we ‘remove the insurance companies’ (i.e, destroy them) we have NO choices! We will have the one size fits all government rationed health care. We will ‘save money’ but be dying in long lines for crappy government run care.
These people areÂ imbeciles, and we cannot get to the 2010 elections fast enough. They are inserting the government into your decision process for which kind of health care plan you want and leaving you know options, they are getting between you and your doctor as to what treatments you can contemplate (that will be restricted by the government approved list which could allow for spending on Viagra but nothing for annual oral cancer testing – per my wise younger brother’s observations) and they are also getting into the end of life discussions between the elderly and their families.Â
The subtlety is now gone from the attack:
The attack comes even though the health insurance industry hasnâ€™t attacked President Obamaâ€™s plan or the legislation being hammered out in Congress.
But Democrats whoâ€™d pushed for a vote before the break are dreading an onslaught of advertisements funded by business. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is putting $2 million toward fighting a Democratic proposal to create a government-run â€œpublic planâ€ to compete with private insurers.
You know why the onslaught is working libs? NO ONE WANTS A PUBLIC PLAN! Get over it. Stop attacking the wishes of America.
Of course they will not stop – which in the end will spell their demise. This time it will be much worse than 1994.
Update: An inside look at the consternation on the left as the Health Care issue implodes all over the Democrats. Quite intriguing.
