I got this email forwarded to me from my wife today, basically the chain letter type thing. You all know what I mean, anyway it hits the nail on the head about our current situations here in the U.S.


Let me get this straight.

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase
and fined if we don't.


Written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it.

Passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it.


To be signed by a president who also smokes.

With funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes.

To be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese.

Financed by a country that's broke .



Now,
honestly just ask yourself,

what could possibly go wrong?

Don't know anything about this proposed system, and should probably mind my own business........but

We here in Canada have had a national health care system since the 1930s and it works just fine for us......at least it has for my family in my 58 years..........and, no one has to take a pill, no matter what you have heard. I guess maybe we are just spoiled, but I think everyone deserves to be healthy.....and not have to mortgage their soul to be healthy.......Maybe, we just have a different attitude.......I will shut up now.....lol

Carry on......

It's not the fact that it's a National health plan that bothers us. It's the fact that, as mentioned above, it was passed, or should I say pushed, through our Government just to say they did it. It' is ill conceived, and ill funded. The fact that our congressmen will not participate ought to tell you something about it. :wtf: It's not good enough for them but it'll be just fine for the regular Joe? And worst of all, it will be run by bureaucrats, Not by doctors! OK, I'm done.

:ditto: $1460.00 per month out of my pocket for health insurance with a $3,000.00 deductible....and NO major health issues in my family at all. Oh yeah, I'll take a health plan like Canada's!

Every Year they up the costs to small business & independents. Last year My boss took a hit for a 25% Rate Rise. He was lucky. There were some Tool shops in our area that saw 90% rate jumps.

That said, I'm a little scared about this bill. I don't think it's the answer...Did you guys hear about the "Pork" in it that mandates a Government Monopoly on college loans... how does that fit into "Health Care"? I think we're in for a world of disappointment.

My biggest complaint is it is always the middle class paying the most or the most affected. If you are on welfare you would have better insurance that paid everything in full then the working class which I think is bullshit. I understand everyone needs health care and I don't ever think it should be denied but why do people that don't work have better coverage then someone that does work?

Yep, the poor and the insiders get a break. No sympathy for the working class.
--
Thirty companies and organizations get waivers from the new health care overhaul because otherwise they'd have to raise rates or drop coverage. The president said neither would happen. Hey, where's our waiver?

The irony here is that most of these million workers are on the lower end of the income scale, the very people ObamaCare was supposed to help by getting them the insurance they couldn't afford on their own. They nearly got priced out of the market.

It's plain as day-in your face on TV.... (tunnel vision)
These changes occur almost daily, and one day we
might wake up to a real nightmare. I look for the
monetary system to collapse in the near future, which
could force life to be very difficult. I want to be ready.

Guess I took it too far, as in the control of our own lives
being voted on by governments, be it healthcare, taxes or
the loss of rights one by one...

I am so lucky that I need no pills, and I see doctors on average
only once every three years.
