Title: Info on ObamaCare not known by the public
Post by: Michele on November 28, 2011, 06:55:09 PM
This is an interesting video.  The link was sent to me by a Tea Party member.  It is an actual show where a Neurosurgeon who was driving called in to tell about information given to a group of Neurosurgeons in Washington DC regarding the new guidelines under Obamacare.  The video is very interesting.  But for those who don't want to take the time to watch, basically ObamaCare is stating that patient's over 70 should be given comfort care instead of surgery.

It's worth watching.

I know it's probably not the place, but well, I've never been known to hold my tongue..but this man needs to GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE! Never has any ONE president made so many screw up's on top of just not plain understanding the BASIC concepts of Economics! If Obamacare goes through.. we are all SCREWED!

We're starting to see the "comfort care" already.  The Canadians have this system already in place.  It's a sad thing that we have 3 places in our small town to get an MRI and I can usually get it done the same day, but in Canada you wait 6 months.

I live 45 min from the border of Montreal and yes, I've heard horrible things about healthcare there.. we are headed in same direction only it's going to be WAY more destructive because we are a larger country.. Obama will be MOST lethal in a 2nd term, Canada will look good to me if he's re-elected!

You should see my little stickies all over the health bill. I would BET an entire years wages that moron has not even read anything in that bill. For example, you know that wonderful clause that lets us keep our kids on our health plan till their 26.. YIPEEE.. Health plan has to let them stay on, regardless of full time student status..but guess what .. YOU GOTTA pay the premium on them!! Then do the math and you'll find that it's cheaper for them to buy their own policy with most plans!! 3 Little words to be so deceptive:  "Make available to".. Yeah make available.................FOR  A PRICE.    found several small things like this HIDDEN in this bill.   :( >:(

That's right because he'll be TWICE as dangerous with NOTHING more to lose at that point. 2nd term is always the worst term.. Look at GW.. and I did vote for him! GW's 1st term was great.. everyone loved him.. 2nd term.. not so much.   Is it wrong of me to say I miss slick Willy? LOL

Please Ladies, never say you miss Slick Willie!  He's the main reason we're in the situation we're in now.  It takes a while for policies to take effect and longer to realize the benefit or not.  ObamaCare won't really hit for another few years, and (hopefully) Obama won't even be in office.  And we women should NEVER tolerate a man in the White House screwing around with staff!!!!

I feel bad for the flack Cain is getting, I had high hopes that someone who has actually RUN a business might get to run the biggest business.  Hmmmm, guess not.  Guilty or not, it doesn't look good.

I'm probably in the minority here but I don't think our President who gets paid less than all of us should be held to impossible standards. Personally I really do NOT care who they sleep with, that's their wives problem, not mine. As long as they do their job.  I don' t have anything to say about Cain really, not sure I believe the allegations, they stink ..but I don't really see anything that screams "Presidential Candidate" so far.. but I've still got my eyes and mind open.

I am trying so hard to keep my mind and eyes open.  It's just hard to know any sort of truth with the media spin.  And I can't rely on Fox or MSNBC for "fair and balanced".......... >:(

I never vote by party.. I vote by issues. Better chance that way than to back either party. All politician's are going to disappoint us, better to accept that and go for the worse of 2 evil's.

I agree with you Linda.  Vote on issues.  But it's pretty bad when a Spongebob/Patrick ticket is looking good.   ???

Yesterday the bomb went off as another part of this healthcare bill went into affect... HHS informed all carriers of what they expect the 85% of premium's to go for, when it was announced they would require carriers to spend 85% of their revenue's on healthcare expenses ONLY.. carrier's knew their days were numbered.. they did this so that carriers would be driven out and making way to a single payer system. Talk about sneaky!   These slow implementing provisions that keep getting snuck in there in advance are to do so so that when the bill goes to the supreme court soon for a final decision, it will be hard to dismantle it.  Pelosi, Reid, and Obama all had their sneaky paws into that.
