~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Joe Biden is out selling the fact that we have to spend money to avoid bankruptcy in the health care industry.

I know that most people – 75-80% like what they have.

I know that all – every single employer – I have talked to is saying that they WILL dump their health care costs on the government if the issue is forced. That’s 160 million insured people.

I had a chart up before about how much we ALREADY OWE on Social Security, Health Care and Medicare. We already have UNFUNDED MANDATES (that is a big IOU) that states that we owe 70 Trillion dollars.

That isn’t made up. That is BEFORE we spend ONE PENNY on anything else.

That is our country’s GDP for the next 5 years.

Mr. Vice President? What is wrong with you? What is wrong with all you people up there? Why are you TRYING to lead us with your lies into a perdition that will destroy what WE value.

I know that many of your followers are seeing the light. I see the ripped off bumper stickers. I see the poll numbers.

Yet you still continue to state there is no other answer – and that’s a lie.

You CAN do something right now. Something that will cost almost nothing and you can implement inside a year – but you won’t because and only because it is a special interest that pays a lot of money to protect themselves and abandon the country as a whole.

I want to ask the lawyers something – DO YOU REALLY THINK THE GOVERNMENT PROGRAM IS GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO SUE IT? Why are you protecting something that isn’t only going to destroy the insurance industry, insurance agents, cut pay for health care workers (as well as destroy jobs and quality of care) but also make a hollow mockery out of what you think will be protected – namely your right to sue the pants off the doctors?

Hey bubba – the doctors are basically going to end up working for Uncle Sam.

This is so stupid.

You lawyers are just like the greedy unions that have destroyed most every industry (rubber, textiles, ship building, steel, cars, airlines, etc) that they have gotten a hold of. You are going to try and protect massive payouts – and end up losing a hell of a lot more in the long run.

Why are you being so short sighted?

For those folks who don’t get it let me break it down for you:

Every item in a clinic/doctor’s office/hospital is something to do with treating your body.
ok?
If something happens to your body in the above locations, the sharks convince you to sue for millions.
ok?
If you do that enough, insurance costs on every single item goes way up.
ok?
If the costs of everything from tongue depressors to bandages goes up, your ENTIRE BILL skyrockets – the costs get passed THROUGH to your BILL.
ok?
Think about it – how many thousands of items are the doctors buying? EACH item has an additional cost added on to it BECAUSE of the HUGE COST of malpractice insurance.
Why?
Because, instead of being rational, everyone wants to strike it rich (you know, become the greedy bastards everyone wants to punish with higher taxes for being evil?) so they sue the doctor, the nurse, the clinic and the scale company because their fat butt was too clumsy to step off the 3 inch elevated scale without twisting their ankle.
Why else?
Because the greedy people have a reaction to the chemicals that treated the tongue depressor and naturally, it is the doctor, the nurse, the clinic and the company that made the tongue depressor CONSPIRING against them.

Does this mean that loss of life or traumatic injuries should be reduced to being joked about and not have the doctor’s punished? Heck no. If you cut off the wrong arm or leg, you shouldn’t only be sued, but have your liscense revoked nationwide, your name disseminated to all medical facilities and your picture up on a database simlar to a sex offender, because in some ways, for example, a drunk doctor could do a heck of a lot of damage to more people.

There are options to fix this – as I said.

Cap the PAIN and SUFFERING SIDE – unless the injury/damage reaches a catastrophic level. Leaving a piece of gauze vs a wrongful death.

Cap the fees a tort attorney can attain in larger class action suits – 10% for the fee and 10% for expenses unless they have documentation to prove their expenses exceeded 10% but not to exceed 20% no matter what.

Loser pays – if you sue and you lose – you pay all legal fees for both sides. If the judge rules it to be frivolous, you can be judged to owe 3 times the legal fees to the person/company you sue.

Open up insurance to cooperatives. Make it controlled – say industry cooperatives – but allow a small concrete plant to join with their state associations plan which will allow them to cut costs.

Start a rating/costing system of information on the internet – make sure that if people don’t get good care – they can let people know. Also – if there are complaints, make sure that the doctor must have them listed. 100k fine for each instance not listed -goes into uninsured fund to help defray costs of gov’t healthcare (medicaid/medicare). Same fine for each instance of ratings being tampered with. Make each health care group/clinic/hospital list average costs for everything from aspirin to appendix removal.

Hospitals should institute “estimates” just like mechanics.

Insurance must have no “out of network” doctors unless they are banned for legal/ethics reasons.

Insurance must allow people to shop – should work together with hospitals/clinics on pricing comparison charts/rating system – help themselves not be taken over by government.

Drop costs on moving from doctor to doctor (including to specialists) by instituting electronic medical records that the patient controls. Half of the cost of the first visit to any out of network, new or specialized doctors is having to collect all of the information all over again. More cost goes to maintaining the rolling files of hundreds of millions of patients. Chips could be made available for the patient to carry around, with everything from drugs they are on to xrays/CT scans/MRIs they have had done. The cost of these chips is around 100.00 for the most expensive – and those hold major GB now.

Allow these plans to progress for 3 years before even thinking about raising taxes or instituting more government controls.

See Mr. Biden, Mr. Obama? We do have a different idea. It might wound you in the legal fundraising a bit, but really, if you think about it, you have a lot more people to answer to.

What do you think is going to happen when the costs skyrocket after the government takes over and you have 160 million angry people who got cared for in hours now getting cared for in weeks to months, with higher costs, less care, deaths going up, and you bumbling boobs telling us what we can and can’t have covered?

My 82 year old mother DESERVES A LOT MORE than you dunderheads. Your powergrab is over. It is time. Sit down and SHUT UP. Dammit – we are getting tired of your manipulation of the economy – every time it starts going up, you bad mouth it. You get it to where it is tottering on a balance and you want to institute new costly programs that will ruin what delicate balance we have, and plunge us in to a hell we didn’t even see with Carter.

You Socialistic/Fascistic people will not see your dreams culminate. I would suggest to every Congressperson to think long and hard about passing ANYTHING else AT ALL before you see a sea of angry people on your front door step on 9/12.

People – if you haven’t made plans, advise your bosses, demand your friends carpool with you, share hotel rooms, pack sandwiches.

I can’t afford to go – but I will walk if I have to. I’ll sleep in my car and make it in to downtown to show these power hungry pigs that they can’t keep doing this to me. I have lost 3/5th of my salary to keep my job – you bet I’ll be there.

Congress- Mr. President – Mr. Vice President.

I just would quit while you’re ahead. 2010 really isn’t ALL that far off.

And I can assure you – I’ll quit my job, declare bankruptcy and eat grass and spend every WAKING MOMENT I have in my body to defeat EACH and EVERY one of you TRAITORS who spend one more FRIGGIN dime of OUR money to keep your jobs by BUYING votes from people who could care less about the country as a whole.

I won’t hesitate one second to do everything I can to make sure you lose the power you so lovingly betray your constituents to hold on to. And I have friends who are willing to help me.

2010 – this is your wake up call.

Better heed this warning. Go ahead and think this is just a little voice in the wilderness that no one listens to.

Have a nice restful weekend thinking about millions wasted, time lost and power surrendered because you don’t listen. Wait til you’re a civilian again and scratch your head and wonder why.

You – I judge you all, both sides, and find you wanting.

A lot of America is doing the same thing.

Better think long and hard.

R.I.P. America, We’ll Miss You

America is now hurtling towards its new status a third world nation.  Its citizens, once the great innovators of the world, are being reduced to slave chattel by the ruling class.  The very men and women We The People had elected to represent their best interests had sold them into a bondage they’d never be free of; a mountain of debt they keep deliberately increasing with each socialist program that is being ramrodded through Congress.  The part that stings the most is the knowledge that the last opportunity to avoid this reality is being squandered by bickering over the issues their masters know divide the majority of the American voters.  Each faction has been willing to throw a partial victory away because they didn’t get everything they wanted.  Instead we are all rewarded with total defeat.

They distracted us with the definition of marriage, abortion and other very real issues while they systematically dismantle the Constitution right in front of us.  They’ve attacked us and then told is we were intolerant when we tried to fight back.  We quietly accepted the erosion of our Constitutional rights in an effort to get along.  We say nothing as the President advertises he is building his own civilian army sugar coated as a year of public service.  It stinks of Hitler’s youth, but again we say nothing because we don’t want to be called mean spirited.  We watch helplessly as ACORN is being positioned to take the next census.  Once this count of convenience is complete and drives the last nails in the coffin of conservatism, we will also see any hope of change that is in the best interest of We The People fade away.

Their goal for America is to become a member of a greater global union.  We will no longer be a sovereign entity, we will take orders from the bankers and financiers that have manufactured the very crises they pretend to rescue us from.  We will be forced to produce, yet not allowed to provide for our own children.  They smile at the knowledge that we handed it to them on a silver platter with our apathy.  How stupid we were that we valued so little the hard won freedom we inherited.

Americans have a history of overcoming incredible odds to achieve great things.  Putting a man on the moon is but one example of the awesome things America has done.  Our innovators have led the world in medicine and technology for the last 100 years.  We settled a huge continent and have stood up for what is good and right throughout the world.  America has fought against tyranny whenever it as reared its ugly head, until it crept into our own country.  Now we wonder, where are the Marines?

America, what are you waiting for?  Those currently in power aren’t going to give back what they have stolen from you easily.  They will use all of the same ploys they used to lure us here in the first place.  They will tell you their agenda is for the children.  They will hide behind their convenient lies and rhetoric and then continue down the same path striving for their undeclared goal…Socialism.

Truly, if any of this were really for the children, they would protect the family.  They would honor marriage as the safest place to raise a child.  They would reward the productive and let us keep our resources and trust that we would use them to care for those precious lives we’ve brought into this world.  It’s not at all about the children.  It’s about controlling the vast wealth and resources of the United States of America.  It’s about power.  They won’t be satisfied with just our country; they have their sights set on the world.  A small band of elitist tyrants are willing to kill our economy and our way of life for their own gain and glory.

Its time. Its time to quit waiting for someone else to do something. Become that someone and step up.  Help to spread the word that we can take our freedom back if we seize every opportunity to put visible pressure on Congress to stop this attack on our liberty. Yes We Can!

What is in the House Healthcare Bill? This Chart shows us!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.

NYC seeks shelter from storm

Add to Technorati Favorites

Join us free at http://logchoice.ning.com – our new Conservative Activism Communication website – Get off the sideline and help us fight!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

New York braces for another storm. In fact, the people in New York are desperately going to have to find shelter elsewhere.

Why?

According to the New York Post, the tax rate on it’s wealthiest citizens to pay for the new Obamacare plan that came out of the House yesterday will reach a criminal 58.68 percent of their income.

Not only is this the highest tax rate seen by New Yorkers in over 3 decades, but this does not include all of the state and local taxation that occurs as well.

Yeah – soak it to the rich, greedy people.

Um.

These are the people who start companies, pursue new ideas, offer you employment and pay you the salaries that will allow you to buy those flashy new rims or that huge big screen.

Not to mention your mortgage.

I understand the reticence of people to say “Whoa – that’s too much to tag on to any one group of people”, right? After all, for those of us making under 100k a year, we don’t have that onerous a tax burden do we?

This is not only taking us back to Pre Reagan tax levels on the wealthy, establishing more tax levels depending on how much you make, instituting more wealth envy and punishing successful people, but it is another promise broken by Barack Obama. Another campaign lie.

Lie.

When you say “No family will pay a higher tax rate than they did in the 90’s” and they are going to under a bill you have indicated you will sign…. that’s a lie.

It doesn’t matter to him that his numbers are slipping, that the majority of 160 million people (75-80%) are HAPPY with their current insurance and that a large majority of the people who are uninsured are people who don’t want or haven’t bothered to get insurance.

Nope.

What matters is the collapse of this economy.

I have written several pieces recently about Communist/Socialist goals in this country. You may or may not have believed them. You may think I’m being Chicken Little. That’s all fine and dandy, but when you see this confiscation of EARNED wealth in this country – you had better realize that when you start being more equal with the people they are stealing from, they will come after you next.

They’ll have to.

They haven’t finished scoring this plan yet – and the costs are anywhere from 1 trillion to 3.5 trillion at last count over the next 10 years.

The Congress is proposing 500+ billion dollars in tax increases to the wealthy over the next 10 years to pay for it.

Where is the rest coming from? Hmmm?

If you are stealing, with all tax levels, 70-80% of the wealthiest people’s money, they don’t have any other place to go but down, people.

All the people aren’t being elevated to where they can buy big screens folks.

All of the people are being dragged down to the poorest levels to make the poor feel better about their lot in life.

Does that really make everyone’s life better? Or would money be better spent on bringing business back to this country, job training and such to enable the poorest to advance themselves to the level of buying that big screen?

What would truly make the poorest happy? I would think the latter – it would enable them, give them pride, allow them to look in the mirror and provide for their families better.

The leadership of the “people” however, believe that the poor are spitefilled people who want to see people that are successful ruined. They believe the poor would wish ill on others.

I don’t believe that is true. There are some bitter folks who go “heck yeah – soak ’em” but maybe you ought to look and see who they are as people before you follow them down that dark, jealousy filled road. Are they really the poor and disenfranchised? Are they people who don’t do anything to improve their lot and blame others? How does someone making money in NYC keep someone in Florida “down in the streets” for example?

There are job programs, shelters, homes, guidance, programs out the ying yang to help folks who are less fortunate. There are people reaching out to poor and homeless, starving and destitute people. All over the place. There are education centers and rides to get them there free of charge.

I can’t believe that this country, the most generous in the world, houses tens of millions of hate filled people who can’t see beyond the nose on their own faces.

Maybe its just their mouthpieces.

Maybe they need to realize that there is more time and money wasted on keeping a few big mouths in power instead of helping their needs.

Maybe – just maybe – they’ll wake up.

Let Barack know that this isn’t right and that people should be allowed to keep what they earn. The charities in this country, the really efficient people who get the most money to the street level to help people are hurting more when the wealthy are punished and 24 cents on the dollar coming out of Washington, D.C. isn’t helping the poor – it’s helping the bureaucrats pay themselves and live it up.

Meanwhile Robert Gibbs sits up there with his smarmy smirk and tells us “it is a situation we are watching”, telling us in his arrogance that the American people are too stupid or beneath the insiders and don’t deserve a straight answer.

Maybe those insiders are the “wealthy” that need to be punished. Hmmmm?

A Tale of Two Women

Add to Technorati Favorites

Join us free at http://logchoice.ning.com – our new Conservative Activism Communication website – Get off the sideline and help us fight!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other..

Charles Dickens “A Tale of Two Cities”

Good old Mr Dickens probably had no idea that this quote, written regarding Paris and London during the American Revolution, would be so applicable today in our polarized society here in the land that was winning its freedom back then. This polarization has been so completely demonstrated by the hero worship of the last two days that it is almost overwhelming. Or should I say heroine.

Woman One – Comes from nothing and by hard work (and affirmative action) goes to the best college and law school and works her way up through the judicial ranks till she now sits as a nominee for the Supreme Court, the highest level in her chosen profession.

Woman Two – Comes from nothing, goes to a variety of schools, works her way through the leadership ranks up from PTA president to Governor of our largest state and was recently considered for the 2nd highest office in the land.

I am reserving judgement on Woman One. I do that because like Senator Sessions said yesterday, I don’t really know which woman we have sitting before us in the court. Is she the strong Latina woman who is ferocious on the bench and very defensive of and proactive for her race/gender? Or is she the reasoned, amiable, thoughtful, sincere woman who seems to lean solely on judicial precedent in deciding her cases that we see before us in the hearings? I think she is probably both and perhaps the least of evils in the candidates Barack Obama was considering. She is also likely to be confirmed because the GOP is afraid of alienating Hispanic voters it would like to reach. To that I say, hogwash! By the way, President Obama was crazy like a fox in nominating someone who could not say much of anything definitive in the hearings because she was “not at liberty to comment” as a sitting appellate judge.

I am also reserving judgement on Woman Two. I would like to see what her long-term plans are and am watching to see those played out daily. For the most part I am a supporter and will probably become more so as she gets her independent political legs back under her and does things in whatever way she sees fit and in whatever ways work best for her family. She is also a dichotomy. She is a seasoned leader who can light up a room with her oratory and win people with a touch and a smile and a look in the eye. She is also a woman who can bristle when attacked and strike back. She is comfortable in formal dress or hip waders and seems to be the same person no matter the apparel.

Two strong women. In this day and age of enlightenment, you would think that both would be celebrated and treated with the highest respect for their achievements. But no, things aren’t always what you expect.

One is revered by many of her race (not all, by far) and practically worshipped in her hearings by those in her party and of her (probable) belief systems. She is given high fives by the liberal pundits, Twitterers and bloggers cause heck – they like her! Her more conservative jurors in the panel grill her hard, but with respect and those Twittering and bogging against generally try to show the same respect with the worst I’ve seen being that “she is an activist and looks like Roseanne Barr”. The conservative pundits (at least on TV – haven’t listened to any talk radio lately) are actually trying to examine her judicial record before making any pronouncements.

The other, from the moment she stepped onto the national stage has either been worshipped or reviled by the public, attacked by the pundits, Twitterers and Bloggers on the left and slightly higher than tolerated by conservative media and the leaders in her own party. She has been called – and I am going to be precise here – a slut, whore, MILF, moron, idiot, bad mother, retard – and those are just a few, especially from the Twittering crowd and those like Olberman and Matthews. Since she went back to govern her home state, she has been assaulted by claims of ethics violations. She only went back home because the man she was running with was not strong enough or different enough to win the highest seat in the land, not because of any lacking of her own. In fact she is the one that brought about the resurgence of the ticket. Throughout the campaign she bit her tongue about the vile attacks. Now that she is breaking free of the constraints of her office – I say, go get em. No female in the public eye has been subjected to this level of hate and vulgarity and had that hate transferred to her children. When she dares to actually publish a column in an MSM paper the outcry is not against her concepts, but that “this moron” could possibly have written it. This same woman was a journalism major in school, battled through complex contracts with energy firms and was able to go off prompter at the most pressure filled moment of her life at the national convention.

So what is the difference between these two remarkable women? There are only a few that I can see, and from what I know of women’s causes, they should be celebrated. Sarah Palin was able to achieve high office and fight the old boy network in her own party to achieve the highest office in her state while being a faithful wife and mother of five children and maintaining a close relationship with her family. Sonia Sotomayor has achieved this opportunity to be heard for the highest possible seat in her profession while being totally devoted to that profession and her extended family.

Oh wait, there are a few other differences. Sarah is extremely attractive, has a hunky loving husband, is incredibly physically fit, can birth a baby and go to work two days later, is spunky, funny and yes, folksy. Isn’t folksy something some of our most accomplished politicians have been? She also firmly believes in the right to life. She believes that so strongly that while doubting her own ability with Trig, she made the hard decision to have him at 42, at the same time as helping her daughter make the same decision. So two children who could have never entered the world, now have and are loved beyond measure. That debate is for a whole other blog post, but it remains a polarizing idea. She also believes that the United States is the greatest nation on earth, will defend it to the death and that it’s constitution is the supreme law of the land, not needing any assistance from the “international community”. She believes in the right to bear arms and to protect your property.

Sonia Sotomayor has done none of the above nor was she able to speak a firm belief in the Right to Life, the 2nd amendment or the Constitution being the overarching legal idea in our country.

Why do liberals and conservative elite hate Sarah Palin so much? Possibly because of all of the above. Why do they respect Sonia Sotomayor so much? Possibly because of all of the above.
