Obamacare: When truth is just an opinion

By Darrell Beck

On March 30, Dr. Wayne Iverson, a San Diego physician, tea party leader and member of Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) who strongly oppose the Democrats’ so-called “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act” (aka Obamacare), presented an informational program at Ramona Mainstage to over 150 concerned citizens, revealing the sobering truth about Obamacare.

We were reminded that we must never forget the far-fetched words of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) when she said prior to the Obamacare vote: “We need to pass this bill to find out what’s in it.” Furthermore, we must never forget that well over 1 million Americans who opposed Obamacare took time away from their jobs and families to travel thousands of miles to Washington, D.C., only to have their protests ignored by Congressional Democrats, not one of whom read the bill before casting their votes for the largest tax increase and the greatest assault on liberty in American history.

Likewise, Americans must never forget that President Obama said prior to passage of Obamacare: ”This legislation is fully paid for, and will not add one single dime to our deficit.” “If you like your doctor and your health care, you can keep them both.” Obamacare will “save the typical family $2,500 a year.”

We should never forget Obama’s word, because from Obama’s viewpoint truth is nonexistent and is merely an opinion.

Now that the bill is law, we are beginning to discover what’s really in the 2,500-plus page bill that has mysteriously grown to over 20,000 pages of regulations and mandates even before it becomes effective in 2014. We are learning about rationed care, doctor shortages, low-cost/high volume treatment practices presided over by administrative panels that will uphold penalties against the people who refuse to participate, while making sure the punishments are enforced by the IRS.

We are learning how Obamacare robs billions of dollars from Medicare and will raise medical costs beyond reason and eventually reduce the quality of healthcare and seriously damage the patient/doctor relationship. We are learning how Obamacare will drive our healthcare insurance companies out of business in order to eliminate competition, thus creating a single payer provider. We will discover that in the end the federal government will be the sole provider who will grab total control over every aspect of our lives.

For example, if we own a firearm, under Obamacare guns will likely be declared unsafe, and therefore if we get hurt Obamacare won’t cover our injuries. Therefore, if we don’t want to be penalized or go to jail, we won’t own a firearm. And what about our automobile? Is it safe? Does it produce the right kind and amount of emissions? Maybe we will decide we won’t need an auto because our Obamacare probably won’t cover alleged injuries heaped upon Mother Earth by creating excessive auto emissions.

Are we partaking of Obamacare-approved vegetables and juices to maintain healthy bodies? Are we using Obamacare-approved light bulbs so we won’t damage our eyes? Are we bathing and exercising according to Obamacare guidelines? We will eventually discover that Obamacare bureaucrats will wield enormous powers to arbitrarily devise never-ending mischief in order to regulate the people.

From Obamacare charts we will discover that if we are between about 20 years of age to 55 years of age we are considered to be in our prime, having greater value to the Obama collective than a young child or an older citizen who are at a more vulnerable age, considered either too young to contribute or too old to be of practical use to the collective. Thus under Obamacare the question is — do we have a right to be born, to exist or to die, and who grants that right?

Some people may eventually learn that Obamacare ignores the Hippocratic Oath by determining that people are no longer individuals of free will, worthy of healthcare, whether they are young or old, but are merely considered useful cogs within the wheels of the collective. Some may learn that despite all the happy talk about how much the progressives “care about the welfare of the people,” Obamacare is a gross violation of human rights, the U.S. Constitution, and is a severe threat to life and liberty.

Of course we must understand that the crown jewel of socialism or collectivism is socialized medicine, because it eliminates individual sovereignty and turns our lives over to an unelected, unaccountable board of “Determinators,” a.k.a. “Death Panels” who are in charge of deciding who is worthy of living or dying, or who gets the “red pill.” So you must now realize, under Obamacare your body and soul belongs to the “Determinators.”

    As to Herve OHHH MY WORD! You just outlined what socialized medicine did to the French system why do you think it would be any different here? What was it Einstein said "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." is the definition of INSANITY! When are we going to learn. A simple search of all socialist experiments shows dismal failure. Why would we think we would be differemt? And one more small factor I've seen no one mention is yes, dr's will be in short supply, but so will Nurses, NP"s, LVN"s, ER's. Who will actually be giving the care to all these new health care recipients? If you've been to an ER recently you know the wait is long. How long do you think you are going to wait when there are all those new Obamites also waiting?

      At some point in time the people of Ramona will need to grasp the fact that the last thing the Republican Right cares about is you. Obama could donate all of his money to starving kids, pull every soldier out out the Middle East, triple the opportunities for American workers and you would say that he hasn't gotten the gas down to $1.00 a gallon. I grew up in a racest community, my family, friends…all biggots. They also made stupid excuses for their hatred of other cultures and races. In history there have been hundreds of bills that people have disliked. The bills made it through both the House and the Senate became law and we have to live with them. Deal with it! The truth is we are country that cares, if we don't assist those who need assistance we will suffer. No medical insurance doesn't mean no medical attention, it means we pay for everyone that needs help to go to the emergency room. They are hiring nurses now more than ever. No doctor is living on rent assistance and the hospitals are not closing. Our problem is greed and that problem is unfixable and will be our demise.

    So, your answer to improving healthcare for our population is to NOT provide it? You complain about imaginary future waiting times. How about starting a national strategy to encourage our children to go into medical careers? Your comment about "Obamites" really shows your focus – simply put, you're just anti-Obama. Did it ever occur to you that our country is stronger and more secure when we are all healthier? Those people in line are our fellow Americans. Please don't respond with some baloney about how only illegal aliens will use the healthcare system, as the law explicitly prohibits benefits to non-legal residents.

    Darrell Beck should have his own TV show. It would bust the ratings on either Fox News or more likely The Comedy Channel. He has become so pathetic in his thought process it would be funny if it were not so sad. I am not going to respond to his points because they are just so factually inaccurate, one sided and void of logic there is not enough space. Mr. Beck hates anything that is not old, white and conservative. Don't take my word for it…..just continue to read his increasingly hateful and nonsensical drivel. But that is today's Tea Party and modern GOP: Grumpy Old People.
    Hillary in 2016!!

    I have health care. I went to college. Got a degree in a field where the company wanted to lure to work by providing health care. I paid back my student loans. I didn't go skiing with my friends so that I could study. I didn't party…so I could study. And now, everyone is entitled to what I earned because it isn't fair. And now, I get substandard health care because Cadilac plans are taxed for being too extravagant. Why would a kid go into the medical field when they can kick back, party and know they will be taken care of?
