This medical monster called ObamaCare
By Jim Tapscott
Time tends to blur memories. That is what those who pushed this healthcare legislation, referred to as ObamaCare, through Congress HOPE is true, regarding its ruinously expensive, oppressive and unfair mandate.
The voting public was thoroughly turned off by the high-handed and semi-secret way in which the Congressional leadership slipped this bill of over 2,000 pages through the Congress. Never forget that the then speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, stated from her podium, that “we need to pass this bill so we can see what’s in it.” Remember the last-minute sweetheart deals that were made to get the last two Democratic votes to get it passed?
Yes, we are not happy with how this was done, but WE need information, leadership and a plan in order to be effective in ridding us of this clear and present danger. A confused people, lacking leadership, will spin their wheels, raise a lot of dust, but will not reach their goal. Yes, retiring this president after just one failed term does seem increasingly likely, but that does not automatically get rid of this socialized medicine menace.
So, we have a challenge. Now that “what’s in it” is coming to light, what are we going to do about it?
To that purpose, Ramona TEA’d is sponsoring a full-length town hall meeting on this topic on Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Ramona Mainstage Theatre. The program begins at noon. The doors will open at 11a.m.
Featured will be a graphic video presentation called “Sick and Sicker,” which is playing to rave reviews around the country. Introducing the film and answering questions will be San Diego’s leading opponent of ObamaCare, Wayne Iverson, M.D., the head of the California Association of Physicians and Surgeons, who is planning to run for Congress in a new congressional district, one not including Ramona. This is a dedicated man and an expert on his topic who has made a decision to not just sit on the sidelines and rant, but do something effective. Be certain to hear him and ask questions while we have an expert on hand.
The tea parties across the country have not forgotten that the medical monster called ObamaCare is still running loose, even though parts have had to be dropped by this administration as they are “unworkable.”
The balance of this mandate will take effect lest we all show our strong disapproval. Come on Nov. 5 and be prepared to take effective citizen action while we still can.
