Canadian Healthcare Coming to America?

President Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress are LYING about Obama's HealthScare Plan and they know it. If any version of HealthScare floating around Congress is enacted, there will be rationing of health care services. There is no guarantee that we will be able to keep our current health insurance and doctors. Taxes and premiums will increase for many if HealthScare becomes the law of the land. And, Senior Citizens will experience cuts in Medicare benefits to insure the 46 million uninsured, including 12 million illegal aliens that will have coverage one way or another. That is the truth and the American people, who are not stupid, know it. As a result, currently 56% of Americans are opposed to Obama's HealthScare Plan. And, the number is even higher among Senior Citizens as 84% of Seniors, who see the cuts to their benefits coming, oppose Obama's HealthScare Plan.

It is virtually impossible to insure 46 million people, who currently do not have health insurance, without all of the things happening that I have listed above. And, specific to rationing that is certain, there just are not enough doctors, nurses and hospitals to go around if 46 million more people suddenly have preventative care health insurance. The numbers just don't add up. It does not take a computer or the Congressional Budget Office to figure out that Obama's HealthScare Plan will bankrupt the United States. It will not cost one trillion dollars over the next ten years; but rather trillions and trillions of dollars in deficit spending. To think otherwise is just plain delusional nonsense or more lies. Remember, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Amtrac and the Post Office are already bankrupt not to mention the fact that the United States government is already trillions in debt.

Obama and the Democrat Socialists that control Congress are determined to pass HealthScare in spite of all this information. They simply don't care if they bankrupt our country. Long term, we will end up with the same system that exists in Canada that causes Canadians to come to the United States for health care. Though there are many examples, it was reported just today that a Canadian that was diagnosed with probable brain cancer could not get an MRI to confirm the diagnosis for 3 months. This particular man immediately came to the US for an MRI. American doctors quickly determined that the man had a golf ball size tumor in his brain. The Canadian brought the information back to Canada and was told he would have to wait 4 months for surgery even though this was life threatening Cancer. Can you imagine how long the wait would be for knee or hip surgery. Instead, the Canadian immediately came back to the United States to have the surgery, which was successful. The man is now suing the Canadian government for his out of pocket medical expenses. What makes this story even more interesting is that apparently there are Canadian brokers that literally go out to bid for clients that need surgeries in the US. And, in doing so, American doctors and hospitals that have openings will perform surgeries at about a third the cost usually charged insurance companies. This is the free market at its best and there is a lesson in it for all of us about controlling health care costs.

If Obama's HealthScare Plan is enacted, there will be many American stories like the one described concerning the Canadians that must flee their country to buy medical services in the US. Of course, the "rich" will have the means to buy medical services else where. Lower and middle class Americans will be stuck with ObamaCare and in many cases it will be life threatening.

President Obama continues to fall in the polls. Obama's latest job approval rating is at 49%. That is not just happening because of the President's HealthScare Plan; but rather because of all of Obama's Socialist Schemes and many of the Socialists and even Communists Obama has appointed as CZARS. The bloom is clearly off the rose. Obama's actions speak much more loudly than his words. Those who voted for Obama, who believed he would govern from the center, are clearly seeing that President Obama is a Socialist who is weak on defense and foreign policy. I don't know why anyone would be surprised by Obama's actions. The Campaigner In Chief is doing exactly what he said he would do during the campaign.

As Conservatives, we sounded the alarm bells; but obviously 52% of the people that elected Obama were tone deaf. Now many Obama voters are seeing President Obama as the Socialist that he really is and they are not too happy. It's ok. The Governor's elections in New Jersey and Virginia this November are the first referendum on Obama, which will be followed by the Congressional elections in November, 2010. We will all have a chance to JUST SAY NO loud and clear in these up coming elections.

P.S. When the time comes in the next few months, I will be asking you to get out your check books to help us defeat my Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democrat Socialist Majority Leader of the US Senate. Reid is way down in the Nevada Polls and he is vulnerable. Expect to hear more in the weeks and months ahead.
