The president of the United States encompassed himself Tuesday with 150 doctors wearing lab coats, 150 of them who embraced the idea supporting the public health care option. But are they really looking out for our best interest or are they just another group of adorers worshiping their “anointed one?”
Obama said that we have heard from all sides of the health care issue and it was time to act now. My question is, who has Obama been listening to?
Who were these 150 doctors?
“Nobody has more credibility with the American people on this issue than you do,” Obama commented to the 150 doctors who surrounded themselves around him. Really? Lets take a look as to who these doctors are.
Further research discovered that these doctors were nothing more than Obama supporters and contributors who worked for nonprofit organizations. They were told to bring their lab coats and some forgot to do so. The White House had to scramble to find more lab coats. As one attentive physician said, “It was obvious that this was nothing more than a photo-op. It is ethical practice that doctors do not wear lab coats outside their work area.”
This show of force, or lack of it, was nothing more than a strategy of manipulation; a weak one at best. Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) said it best, “Today, the president wants you to believe that the medical community supports his government takeover of health care. Don’t be fooled.”
You would think with the number of physicians we have in the United States, a far better attendance than 150 doctors would show up on the White House lawn. This was a crude attempt to conjure up more Americans to stand by his socialistic health care plan. And it failed.
I would think our president was smarter than this. I guess I was wrong.
The AMA says yes to public option.
Obama constantly stresses that the American Medical Association (AMA) supported the public health care plan. If Obama was listening to the AMA, he was listening to the wrong people. The AMA only makes up 15 percent of the physicians nationwide, and a wee tiny bite of Americans as a whole.
Contrary to what the AMA believes, the organization does not have the voice of most doctors. Currently, the majority of physicians are bothered with the government’s agenda of a public health care plan. They believe that if a government plan does pass, the health insurance industry will meet its death without financial resuscitation. Then Americans will be forced to take the public option. And when this happens, don’t be shock to learn you may have to sit idle for a few months before seeing a doctor.
You don’t have to be a Nostradamus to see where this public option is heading.
Almost half of the nation’s physicians have already stated their resentment with intentions of quitting or taking an early retirement if the government health plan comes to being. What will we do then? With an already dire need in medical assistance, the health care industry will become a calamity. Single-payer health care, here we come.
Democrats say people are dying without health insurance.
The far left are flinging the blame game once again, cooking up the conjecture of uninsured Americans dying every day if only they had health insurance. The left elitists, using data from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), want you to know that an estimated 45,000 of the uninsured die every year. What the democrats don’t want you to know is the fact that over 2,000,000 Americans die every year regardless if they have insurance. Democrats are constantly trying to paint a grim image when Americans should look at the whole picture.
Death does not care if you carry a health insurance card.
Besides, if a health care bill does pass, the public option would not take effect until 2013, just in time for Obama to begin his second and final term as president without repercussions if and when the public health care plan fails.
So, let’s do the math. If the plan does not kick in for another 4 years, and the democrats are saying 45,000 uninsured will die annually, that equates to approximately 180,000 uninsured people who died in order for Obama to retain his seat in the presidency.
And if the public option is to ratify in 2013, can someone educate me as to why the needed hastiness in passing a governmental controlled health care plan? I mean, really. Is there one person out there that can manifest an answer to this?
Democrats are saying “no way” of dropping their coverage.
Democrats who embraced Obama’s dream of universal health care also protest venomously the idea of dropping their current health care plan and picking up the public option. Why is that? It would save taxpayers millions upon millions of dollar if the both the House and Senate opted out of their current plans.
Currently, elected officials and their families receive what is the known as the “Cadillac health care plan” for the low price of $500 a year. This covers ALL their doctor visits, surgeries, and prescription drugs without them paying one penny more. Anything beyond their premium payments are passed on to the taxpayers.
So, does the intended government plan cover the same benefits as our elected officials? No. If it did, the plan would bankrupt itself within a year. Yet, anyone from the far left will try to convince you that the public option is what’s best for all of us.
I say if the government thinks the public plan is good for the nation, our elected officials should lead by example by opting out their current plans and picking up the public option. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. What we have in Washington is a bunch of charlatans.
Don’t let the “white coats” and Obama fool you. If our president strives to influence the American people in a controversial matter using nonsensical props such as people wearing white lab coats, then Americans should take a cautious look at what the president is trying to sell us.
Of course our Founding Fathers never mentioned a health care plan during their time. However, Thomas Jefferson did profess his belief of what our government should and should not do with relation to a person’s health:
“Well what if he neglect the care of his health or his estate, which would more nearly relate to the state. Will the magistrate make a law that he not be poor or sick? Laws provide against injury from others; but not from ourselves.”
Its time for our representatives to get back on the beaten path left by our forefathers.
