Here we go again. A must vote for this legislation to preserve 0bama’s ego. But anyone with logical reasoning ability knows that this legislation is a welfare bill for Insurance CORPORATIONS.
Jane Hamsher over at Fire-Dog-Lake blog has a side by side comparison of the myths that the Democrats are selling about what 0bama care will do and the what the bill really says. Fire-Dog-Lake is one of those nasty blogs that spread disinformation about Senator Clinton all the while supporting 0bama is THE One. Now that Ms. Jane can see that 0bama is merely a tool for corporate looters, Wall Street and banks — she has been on the nail liar’s hides to the wall band wagon. Ms. Jane you are years late and who the hell listens to you anyway? Whatever my complaint against Ms. Jane might be — she has been leading the charge against this crap Health care whatever that the Democrats are determined to force on Americans.
Ms. Jane’s debunking of the first myth of the Democrat’s health care bill is in fact the biggest lie — that this bill is really Universal Health CARE. No way does this mess of legislations come close to Universal Health Care. This legislation is Corporate WELFARE — to insure that the CEO royalty get to maintain their position at the top 1 % of 1% of the income and benefits pyramid.
Myth #1: . This is a universal health care bill.
The bill is neither universal health care nor universal health insurance.
Per the CBO:
- Total uninsured in 2019 with no bill: 54 million
- Total uninsured in 2019 with Senate bill: 24 million (44%)
Be sure to take a careful look at the Myth and Truth chart assembled by the team at Fire-Dog-Lake. This paragraph states the logical conclusion — if family will no longer be able to afford health (whatever) insurance — then the next logical path is to not buy insurance and to take a gamble. It might be more effective to bank a set amount and build a self insurance fund for emergencies. At one time the advice was to save for retirement, but the wall street investment bankers have figured out how to loot pension funds and retirement savings — so now the best path may be to put money aside for medical emergencies. If and when a major medical emergency arises, perhaps MDs will follow the path of Veterinarians and use state approved humane euthanasia? How would science fiction writers plot the logical conclusion of millions of self insured facing potential bills for illnesses or injuries that no family of modest means can EVER save for?
A middle class family of four making $66,370 will be forced to pay $5,243 per year for insurance. After basic necessities, this leaves them with $8,307 in discretionary income — out of which they would have to cover clothing, credit card and other debt, child care and education costs, in addition to $5,882 in annual out-of-pocket medical expenses for which families will be responsible. Many families who are already struggling to get by would be better off saving the $5,243 in insurance costs and paying their medical expenses directly, rather than being forced to by coverage they can’t afford the co-pays on.
Oh but wait — hold the presses. The Democrats are now promising that at some point they will come up with some version of a bill which might promise SINGLE Payer. My bet is that no bookie will even take bets that the democrats will EVER come through with any sort of legislation which really benefits real people in the real world.
If anyone in 2007 told me that I would become so cynical and skeptical about the Democrats by 2010 I’d have called that person a liar.
