Republican Lies About Health Care Reform

The GOP policy of destroying Obama at all costs is in high gear with its big guns blatantly lying to the American people.

Most people seem to know better....Yet the base is crazier than ever...Not surprising when you have statements like the one below being thrown at them by their so called leaders.

This is Sarah Palin's statement...made yesterday on Facebook...I give it to you in total...without edit..since she says we pajama clad bloggers make shit up about what comes out of her mouth...

Yesterday at 4:26pm

As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Health care by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.

Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.

We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.

Rep. Bachmann's speech can be viewed here:

Now the real deal on Health Care is this...

No one is mandating that old people go out and kill themselves...or prepare to kill themselves to make way for the young....

This seems to come from the part of the bill that addresses “end of life planning.”....you know what that is...Hospice care...living wills....etc...all the stuff that hospitals already ask you about when you check into the hospital...right now....

Nobody is advocating euthanasia....however...I personally think it is a topic that needs addressing...because some of us don't want to hang around...depending on a machine to breathe and some nurse to wipe our ass when we soil ourselves..

That is not living to me..and I have already made it clear to my sisters...that if they love me..

They will pull the plug..if I haven't already done it myself...

The proposed legislation does mandate that medicare pay for consultations between doctors and patients about end of life decisions...Medicare currently does not do that...

At the other end of the spectrum...the pro-birthers are telling their people that the bill will make them pay for other women's abortions.

The real plan is to get insurance companies to pay for birth control and abortions as part of insurance health plans....

Insurance companies do right now pay for viagra and other male enhancements for men, while refusing to cover birth control or any abortion procedures for women...

Wingnuts are also lying by saying the Obama plans to ban all private health care...Not true...once the plan passes into law....all existing plans will be grandfathered in to larger risk pools...forcing the cost to policy holders down....

Less money coming out of your pocket in other words...These wingnuts are simply buying the BS being shoveled around by the health care industry..

The wingnuts are hyperventilating about government run health care...saying the government can't run health care programs...

Well....what do they think Medicare and Medicaid are....private corporations?

The GOP has maintained that government will begin to ration health care....Hell...the insurance companies do that now....

I mean...they refuse coverage to persons deemed to have pre existing conditions....They refuse coverage for no reason what so ever...even when you've paid all your premiums...

And....no matter what you do...in your work health coverage...it goes up every year..whether you've used it or not....

Screwed no matter what....Given a choice....I like the reform plan..
