A chart has been created to illustrate how the House Healthcare plan will affect our government.  It is absolutely incredible to wend your way through this flow chart.

Jamie Dupree has the link so we can download the entire chart.  I recommend that you do.  You really have to see what this Congress of Evil has planned.  http://docs.house.gov/gopleader/House-Democrats-Health-Plan.pdf

Jamie describes it:

It shows the flow between consumers and the various entities that would be set up under this plan, with arrows in multiple colors pointing to big boxes, circles, squares, octagons, rectangles, triangles and more.

There are boxes for “Federal Mandates for Website Design (I didn’t find that one in the actual bill), “Accountable Care Organization,” “Office of Minority Health,” and on and on…

As I said, you really need to see this chart to believe it.  They have provisions for things like ‘Cultural and Linguistic Competence Training’, ‘National Priorities for Performance Improvement’, Comparative Effectiveness Research Commission’, and ‘Advisory Committee on Health Workforce & Evaluation’. 

What this looks like to me, is a whole lot of money (that they don’t have) to pass around to more committees and power-monger groups.  It is more hands in more pockets and ineffective government money pits.

Once again, the word is, LET YOUR REPRESENTATIVES KNOW that you are onto them.  You WILL hold them accountable.  It is not too late yet.  Do not sit there with that glazed look in your eyes saying “what can I do about it?”  You KNOW what you can do about it, because we have been telling you for weeks what you can do about it.  Now it is time to DO it!

WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT.  Now we need to give it to them.

Once again, I give kudos to Michelle Malkin.  She had this video posted on her sight this evening.

Yes, it is satirical, but unfortunately, it is also way too close to probabilities.  I only hope that it doesn’t end up as one of those “sad but true” instances.

Enjoy (and shudder at) the video!

Obamacare Bill Kills Choice! Don’t believe their lies!

 Thanks once again to Michelle Malkin for this post.

According to the Investors’ Business Daily, they found a provision in the bill that would pretty much kill off the market for personal, individual insurance and funnel everyone into the “consumer option”.

When they found this provision in the 1,018 page bill they didn’t believe it.  So they went to the House Ways and Means Committee for verification.  Yep – it was correct:

The provision would indeed outlaw individual private coverage. Under the Orwellian header of “Protecting The Choice To Keep Current Coverage,” the “Limitation On New Enrollment” section of the bill clearly states:“Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day” of the year the legislation becomes law.

What this basically means is that yes, we can indeed keep our current coverage – indeed; those of us with private individual coverage won’t be able to CHANGE it.  And, if we leave a company to work for ourselves, we will NOT BE ABLE to get individual coverage from a private carrier. 

Sounds to me like choices are becoming limited.

Also according to this MM article, The National Taxpayers Union researched the references to taxes and regulation versus the references to options and choices in this bill.  Here is what they found:

They found 1400 references to “taxes/regulation” compared to 88 for “choice/options.” And this sums it all up:

The terms “consumer-driven” and “patient-driven” as in consumer-driven and patient-driven choices and health care do not appear in the bill.

And, with the additional tax burdens being added to employers and employees alike, this is just further proof that this Obamacare may indeed be the final nail in the coffin of our Free America.

Folks, once again, I implore you to call and fax your representatives.  Let them know that they are being held accountable.  That you will NOT support them approving this monstrosity. 

Obamacare will not heal America.  It will kill it.

Here is why The Logical Choice is SO very important!

You may wonder why we are stressing the importance of our fledgling conservative advocacy group, The Logical Choice.  You may wonder just what we hope to accomplish.

I know that the Main Scoundrel has been talking about what it is that we stand for.  And how we hope to be able to eventually (soon, hopefully) get our message to candidates.  And also how we really want to be able to offer a counterweight (as it were) to groups like Acorn and MoveOn.org, except with truth and values and ethics. 

Today, in an article in the New York Times political blog section, The Caucus, there is an article talking about how one of Obama’s advocacy groups, Organizing for America, is going to start a door-to-door campaign talking up Obamacare!

THIS is exactly why The Logical Choice is so very important.  Organizing for America will hit the most uninvolved and (if following Acorn’s tactics) the poorest and least educated of Americans.  They will fill them up with propaganda with no regard for the truth (Hope and Change, anyone?).  And they will organize these people to make a lot of noise, and make it appear as though this is a nationally accepted program.  IT IS NOT.  Therefore, it is absolutely imperative that WE, THE PEOPLE also get out to make sure that these groups of people hear actual TRUTHS.  Truths are something the left’s advocacy groups are unfamiliar with.  Truths are NOT what these groups actually advocate.  That is what WE have to do. 

Do not stay silent, people.  Talk to people.  Do your best to educate youngsters – we spend many evenings in our local coffee house; and we spend most of that time talking to the kids who work there.  Not pushing, just informing.  And ‘advocating’ for them to learn for themselves.  To not take what they hear from their teachers or liberal media, or even from us for granted.  To look it up for themselves.  We have to educate.  We have to promote.  We have to contact our representatives.  We cannot remain silent, assuming someone else will do it.  All too often that someone else wears an acorn on their shirt!

This song was posted to YouTube prior to the election.  Unfortunately, it was pretty much missed until now.  I found this on Hot Air and think it is a wonderful song.  This young lady, Ash Soular is terrific.  I will be looking to see if she has written any POST Obamanation songs!  Watch and listen:

Government will not support Christian Group?! Go figure!

Okay.  For 42 years, The God and Country Family Festival in Nampa, Idaho has been having the Air Force do a flyover.  According to the Canyon County Commissioner David Ferdinand, this festival was founded on the principles that our country was founded on God and Country, and the military part of it is a huge part of the event:

“We’ve had A15, A10s, we have even had a B-1 bomber from the U.S. Air Force,” said Ferdinand.

Ferdinand says the flyover is a salute to the service men and women, and is a cherished part of the night for the more than 10,000 that attend.

“This thing is a patriotic event and in our opinion, why it started and where it started, we need to continue that tradition,” said Ferdinand.

From http://www.ktvb.com/news/localnews/stories/ktvbn-jul0309-no_flyover.60a08ee.html

This year, however, when the festival board submitted their request (as required) to the Pentagon, their request was turned down.  Board member Patti Syme said:

… the e-mail from a defense official informed her the Pentagon prohibited support of special interest groups.”I called him immediately and just said, you know hey we’ve been doing this for 42 years, we’ve had flyovers, what is the problem?” Syme told KTBV. “And he said, well we have looked up your Web site and everything on your Web site seemed to focus on Christianity, ministry booths. And he said, in fact, ma’am it sounds like it focuses on Christianity. And he said, in fact, it would be great to go to, in fact, if I personally, could come I would, but we can’t endorse such an endeavor, so they couldn’t do the flyover.”

The Pentagon basically said that they can’t support any event “that provides a selective benefit to any individual, group, or organization, including any religious or sectarian organization, ideological movement, political campaign or organization, or commercial enterprise, to include a shopping mall or motion picture promotion.”  Which, when the malarkey is washed away, boils down to the fact that the Pentagon didn’t realize that the festival celebrated God and therefore is taboo.

But, Obama can quote the Koran with impunity, and if Muslims want to drop a rug and pray in the middle of a campus, it is okay; but for crying out loud we cannot support Christianity of any kind.  Regardless of what our Fore Fathers said.  How sad is this?

Statistics on Nationalized Healthcare – 100% Fascinating!

Still thinking there is nothing wrong with the proposed Obamacare?   Still thinking it might be okay, and that really, we have to take care of all those uninsured – even though there really isn’t any such thing, as it is AGAINST THE LAW for a (non-private) hospital to turn down any patient, regardless of their financial situation?

Well, on Hot Air today, I found some great statistics!  Here are a few:

60: Average cancer survival rate (all types) for patients in the United States. Canada’s survival rate is significantly lower at 55%, while Europe’s is a dismal 48%.

81: Average percentage of those who survive a diagnosis of prostate cancer in the United States versus 43% in Britain under their National Health Service.

90: Number of days, on average, each Canadian patient must wait for an MRI under the Canadian government-run health care system.

Not good enough for you?  How about these:

10,000: Number of Canadian breast cancer patients to file a class action lawsuit against Quebec’s hospitals because, on average, they were forced to wait 60 days to begin post-operative radiation treatments.

280,392: The number of jobs that employers would shed if government levied an employer mandate, requiring them to insure all employees. A 2007 study by Katherine Baicker of Harvard University and Helen Levy of the University of Michigan (“Employer Health Insurance Mandates and the Risk of Unemployment“) found that “0.2 percent of all full-time workers and 1.4 percent of uninsured full-time workers would lose their jobs if a health insurance mandate were written into law. Workers who would lose their jobs are disproportionately likely to be high school dropouts, minority, and female.”

There are more stats that are equally interesting and I heartily suggest you read them all.  Heck, use these stats in your efforts to convince your state representatives that their careers are at risk if they pass this proposal. 

If you don’t believe these facts, you can research online and get your own facts and stats.  They are everywhere.  Obama chooses to either ignore them or to edit them for his own purposes, ie:  “There are many countries who have the single payer system, and it works pretty darned good”.  There is nowhere where it works ‘pretty darned good’.  And it won’t work pretty darned good here, either.  The big problem is, where will WE go for quality health care when the U.S.’s healthcare system is nationalized?  Switzerland?
