Healthcare Reform Notes

Posted by obama the antichrist on August 17, 2009

Hi guys and gals I am back finally. i have been doing mission trip stuff so i have had no computer. But anyway, this healthcare reform is completely assinine! Yes we do need healthcare reform. However, if this 1018 page bill is never read fully and understood by all senators then why should we let it pass. The veil is so far over the publics eyes and i think nancy pelosi harry reid and howard dean likes it like that. So here is a letter my friend has wrote our senator. It is really good i think.

Senator Bayh,

As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the healthcare bill
before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the
brazenness of the government’s proposed involvement in the patient physician
relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration
patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a
healthcare system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees
that we need to fix our healthcare system, but the proposed bills currently
making their way through congress will be a disaster if passed.

I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following
troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe
that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to
inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed

Furthermore, If you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on
the country and destroys the doctor/patient relationship, I will do
everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next election.

    Hey OTA, it’s nice to see you back here. You’re probably going to find it hard to get anyone to debate you on this topic… the liberals here don’t seem to have any arguments, but as I’ve found, that doesn’t seem to change their opinions any.

    On Betty’s link: http://blogs.tnr.com/tnr/blogs/the_treatment/archive/2009/08/03/will-you-still-feed-me.aspx

    It states “No federal payment for undocumented aliens.” (dated April ’09)

    In your friend’s letter it says: “Page 50 Section 152 in HC bill: HC will be provided to ALL non US citizens,
    illegal or otherwise”

    Do you know which is true as of today?

    in my opinion, if aliens came to our shores or crashed their spaceships in our deserts and they needed emergency medical help, we should provide. hell if i can pay taxes to fund wars and space programs why not help living beings. i don’t care what language they speak. if they take over our country in the end so be it. we did the same thing a couple of centuries ago, didn’t we?

    and, we have this:

    Statue of Liberty National Monument
    A poem by Emma Lazarus is graven on a tablet

    within the pedestal on which the statue stands.

    The New Colossus
    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    “Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
    With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    I also believe it would be wrong to not provied emergency medical care to anyone who needs it.

    yes, if we look beyond political ideology and all that and go to the human level of things like a mother bringing in her very ill child =(( the priority wd be to attend to that child no matter even if the mother has no ‘green card’

    Hey Kay, if I’m still part of the “liberals” (as everyone who disagrees with you generaly is^^), i must say that I don’t feel 1) concerned 2) legitimate 3) informed enough to speak fully and totally on the subject…

    Sorry, I can’t spread-my-malicious-liberal-poison-in-the-exclusive-goal-to-win-the-debate here^^
