The way of the Left is to “struggle” against imaginary villains. Obamacare is loaded with genuine villains.
We’ll be the victims, here are the villains.
ACORN now called COI will be handed billions of our tax dollars to be the street level “Brown Shirts” charged with enforcing the government’s new rules for our lives.
Trial Lawyers will greatly benefit from this plan. A little noticed section of the House Leadership version gives them the right to sue anyone they can imagine on behalf of the government without a prior agreement with the government.
Illegal aliens will benefit because there are no provisions to ask anyone’s citizenship before providing medical services. Illegal aliens will not be forced to buy medical insurance as we will, but they will receive it anyway. If we don’t join a plan; we get fined. They just take the next available appointment.
Unions especially the Service Employees International Union and the Auto Workers Union will have their “Cadillac” healthcare specifically paid for with our tax money.
The Group Home Industry will see explosive growth under Obamacare as sick and elderly Americans will be warehoused in institutions serving as “God’s waiting rooms” throughout America. Anyone who has ever had a loved one in one of these places knows they will become “Soylent Green” factories.
Big drug companies will have the government scare seniors into paying for name brand medications because “Can generics really be trusted?”
WalMart and a few other mega-companies will greatly benefit because the new taxes to pay for employee healthcare will kill their competition.
Of course the “this will keep you healthy” charlatans will make billions from frightened Americans worried about having to require medical care. The copper bracelet medical quackery of the past will seem reasonable compared to the lengths fear will drive people.
Finally the funeral industry will thieve under a system which is based on “thinning the herd” and making itself look viable by reducing the number of people who rely on it. No one can deny that our death rate will go up as a result of long lines, long waits for appointments scarcity of doctors and equipment and the stress and despair that comes from living in a socialist country.
The time to fight this plan is now. We can’t wait until it is passed and signed to fight it. That will be too late. Our voice must be strong and our message must be clear: No!
If we fail to act we will become slaves of our own government. They want to make old people feel guilty for wanting to live. Don’t let that happen.
