Speaker Nancy Pelosi - An Incoherent Socialist

Democrat Socialist Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco is simply incoherent. Speaking of Obama's HealthScare Plan, Pelosi said "we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy". Pelosi must be smoking medical marijuana. The problem is that the American people know very well what is in HealthScare and knowing what we know and the government's track record, WE DON'T WANT the government take over of the health care system in the United States. What ever issues we may have with insurance companies, ultimately we can fire them and choose to buy insurance from another company. As a company owner, I can say that we change our health insurance provider every few years to get better pricing. Once the government intrudes into our lives and health care, by law, other than revolution, how do we get rid of the government?

Obama's HealthScare Plan will result in $500 Billion in cuts to Medicare, $500 Billion in new taxes, higher premiums, rationing, death panels and in general a poorer quality of health care for all. 22 million Seniors will lose their Medicare Advantage HMO programs if HealthScare in enacted, which will result in higher out of pocket expenses for them one way or another. The fact is that it is impossible to insure 30 million uninsured without the rest of us paying the bill one way or another. And, why on earth would any rational elected official vote to create a new entitlement program when Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are all heading toward insolvency now. This is just plain fiscal insanity. While Speaker Pelosi and others in Congress may not have read the 2,700 page HealthScare monstrosity that is before Congress, the American people are into the details because it impacts our very lives and well being.

And, the numbers are all smoke and mirrors. There will be no savings from HealthScare and in fact, this hostile government take over of the health care system will result in the bankruptcy of the United States. President Obama keeps painting insurance companies as villains. And, though there are problems with insurance companies that require regulation, the fact is that the average pre-tax profit of insurance companies is just 3 - 6%, which is lower than most other industries. Nearly all of insurance company income goes to support administration and benefits that are paid out to doctors, hospitals and drug companies. The reason those costs continue to rise is because government payments for Medicare and Medicaid are so low that medical providers must make up the difference by charging insurance companies higher fees for everyone else to cover their losses. Since President Obama has never run a business, or even worked in a business, he does not have a clue about profit and loss.

We need real health care reform instead of Obama's Socialist Scheme to deal with pre-existing conditions, caps on life time benefits, the ability to buy insurance across state lines, the ability to buy insurance through larger pools like Associations and limitations on medical malpractice. Let's start with these common sense elements, which will achieve cost saving results before we jump off a cliff and destroy the health care system of the United States.

We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives who support limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, cost effective energy independence, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform supported by the majority of the American people. We have to end the deficit spending to prevent the economic collapse of the United States. We can do it. We must do it.
