Fri Oct 23, 2009 1:36pm EDT

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Far from providing "affordable"
care for everyone, ObamaCare would result in higher insurance premiums, more
and higher taxes, fewer jobs, lower wages, a reduced standard of living and an
erosion of privacy and individual liberty.

This is the conclusion of a new report, "No Free Lunch: The True Cost of
ObamaCare," by policy analyst Matt Patterson just released by the National

A wonderful little movie they're showing our kids

http://www.storyofstuff.com

The story of stuff. Maybe oughtta be called the story of BS.

Just a few lies they're telling:

The military accounts for 50% of government spending.
That's only true if you take away Social security, medicare, and medicaid. if you add those back in, it's only 20%. That's like saying my car payment is the largest bill I have - if you dont count my mortgage...

The government is there to take care of you - That's their job.
Not last time I checked the constitution

Obama lie of the day: cuts to Medicare providers won't reduce seniors' benefits.

Budget chief contradicts Obama on Medicare costs
By ERICA WERNER (AP) – 4 hours ago

WASHINGTON — Congress' chief budget officer is contradicting President Barack Obama's oft-stated claim that seniors wouldn't see their Medicare benefits cut under a health care overhaul.

The head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Elmendorf, told senators Tuesday that seniors in Medicare's managed care plans would see reduced benefits under a bill in the Finance Committee.

The bill would cut payments to the Medicare Advantage plans by more than $100 billion over 10 years.

The country I want back

The country I want back

SOME of the people who have been appearing at town hall meetings lately say they want to take back their country. Me too.

However, I am left wondering what country they want to take back.

Where is Marcy - why won't she meet with her constituents?

I am not paid by any insurance company or part of any right wing group. I am a private citizen
that does not government health care, VA and Medicare is a joke. Almost $.70 cents of every dollar to finance these bureaucracies is spent on administration only $.30 is spent
on actual medical care. Since Marcy Kaptur won't meet with her constituents on this and other issues while she is on her month long vacation we will have a protest at both her houses.

Remember everyone, in 2010 election we can get rid of these tyrants and show them the doore before they do any more harm.

Poll: Americans are more satisfied with Medicare than private healthcare insurance

"In a national Commonwealth Fund survey, elderly Medicare beneficiaries reported greater overall satisfaction with their health coverage, better access to care, and fewer problems paying medical bills than people covered by employer-sponsored plans. The findings bolster the argument that offering a public insurance plan similar to Medicare to the under-65 population has the potential to improve access and reduce costs."

Two previous Universal Government plans in trouble. Why will Universal Healthcare work?

I read in the daily local today that Social Security will be bankrupt by 2037 and Medicare will be bankrupt by 2017.

Both "Universal" programs created by the Government. Both unwieldy and expensive. And now, both will be insolvent soon without major changes.

Problems With Privatizing Healthcare

NY Times--Insurance companies have used improper hard-sell tactics to persuade Medicare recipients to sign up for private health plans that cost the government far more than the traditional Medicare program, federal and state officials and consumer advocates say.
