You ever see Logan’s Run?
Just taking a little time out to point out that the addition of the $650,000,000,000.00 to the Obama plan for health care along with a side order of of a new Information technology promise of 10s of $billions to upgrade health centers to a new centralized structure, means that the intent is to completely take over the management of our health care system. Of course this means they will have to ration the health care dollars available to make the future budgets work. Which means that when you add the inefficiency of government to this mix.. They’ll probably have to cut someone out of the loop. Old people are expendable in the view of Liberal-Fascists. Ask DR. Kevorkian.
Think I am being a little light on this? Consider that medicare has been quite generous in the last couple of decades in comparison to the diluted form seniors are about to see. I found the following with a simple google search.. It backs my assertions:
Highlights: Medicare and Medicaid would grow more slowly. Obama wants to squeeze Medicaid and Medicare spending to help create a 10-year, $634 billion “down payment” to provide coverage for all.
There are many stories and considerable analysis with regard to the Obama plan. And as we see ALWAYS with the face value being considered, there are always alternate realities, and most created by government exceed the alloted value of “worst case”-ness. )
The reality of putting one’s fate completely in the hands of government should alarm even the most ardent liberal senior, when considering that our social security liabilities dwarf those of General Motors. (if you have been napping too much lately it has been estimated that GM might have liabilities of roughly 30 times its assets.. maybe more) Think really big.
Bottom line: Taxpayers are now on the hook for a record $59.1 trillion in liabilities, a 2.3% increase from 2006. That amount is equal to $516,348 for every U.S. household. By comparison, U.S. households owe an average of $112,043 for mortgages, car loans, credit cards and all other debt combined. [emphasis mine]
OK certainly many of you have heard the Million Dollars a day Jesus thing.. this makes it even bigger. There are people in PRISON for setting up scams like this. But the government has no personal responsibility provisions in its legislation OVER us. And now, we are about to begin multiplying the debt and the fed will be tinkering with the market mechanisms which have brought you reasonable health care in the past.
AARP.. let me suggest that within 10 years, your main customers (now that you are merely an insurance company vs. an advocacy group) will be begging you to go to bat for them. Because cat food and doctors visits will be far too expensive, and mostly unavailable based on current planning.
Tell em you no one warned you.
