“If Obamacare is allowed to survive, then our Constitution has no meaning and our Republic is finished. It will engender a takeover of 1/6 of our economy, create permanent dependency, induce unsustainable inflationary pressure on the cost of healthcare and health insurance, and saddle the next generation with crippling debt.” – Daniel Horowitz, RedState.com
It will impose more than 20 new taxes …
It will add more than a TRILLION dollars to our deficit in 10 years …
It will limit our options when it comes to care …
It will send insurance premiums soaring …
Obamacare is America’s new nightmare. It must be stalled, defunded, and repealed.
Even Democrats who voted for it are beginning to see its terrible consequences. The 2.3 percent medical devices tax is scheduled to take effect January 1st, and now 16 Democratic Senators who voted for the Affordable Care Act are asking that the tax be delayed, as it is “job-killing” according to Senator Al Franken; and they say it will hurt American competitiveness.
Their letter to Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid reads in part:
“…We write to request a delay in implementation of the medical device excise tax. We must do all we can to ensure that our country maintains its global leadership position in the medical technology industry and keeps good jobs here at home. We urge you to support delaying enactment of this provision in a fiscally responsible manner.”
We have told you before, this legislation is a nightmare for America and the reality is just beginning to creep in as 2013 looms on the horizon. The medical device tax is just one spoke in the wheel of the bus called Obamacare that is about to run us over.
Is it Constitutional? We don’t know. The Supreme Court found that neat little loophole that says Congress could force American citizens to buy goods and services. Its contraceptive provisions are still being debated in court. Somehow, it seems that making us buy something is going to come up again, the next time Members of Congress decide its for our own good.
But aside from its constitutional questions, there is the other bad news:
- Physician Hospitals of America reports that more than 60 doctor-owned hospitals across the country that were in the development stage will now be cancelled, because they are ineligible to receive payments for Medicare and Medicaid patients—and it just won’t be feasible to operate. So not only do we not have enough doctors at the current time to handle all the new patients Obamacare is throwing into the system, the ones we do have are leaving practice.
- The provisions are crushing small businesses and many are already cutting jobs or hours in order to handle the more expensive demands.
- Government is expanding in order to implement all the provisions. The IRS alone is being given $500 million more dollars in order to act as the healthcare police and impose fines on those who do not buy insurance.
Obamacare is killing jobs, raising taxes, destroying choice and limiting freedom. We need to repeal it, now. Even Democrats who overwhelmingly supported it are beginning to change their minds. In the coming months and years you are likely to see similar “oops” moments occur again and again, as more government will be necessary to fix whatever this piece or that piece of Obamacare broke. You know, because Nancy Pelosi wanted it to be passed before anyone could see what was in it.
A large enough percentage of Americans disagree with Obamacare to the point that we could influence Members of Congress to stop it and fight for ultimate repeal. There are still ways to hinder the government takeover and stop Obamacare from taking full effect.
Obamacare needs state-run health insurance exchanges—huge government bureaucracies—in order to operate. But, Obama’s bill can’t mandate that states create exchanges. So, states can fight back by refusing to set these up and thus, crippling the legislation. And some already have, such as Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida and Oklahoma.
A majority of Americans don’t want this atrocity to stand, so we have to do everything we can to block it. Sitting back and admitting defeat is the worst thing we can do, because once all the tentacles of Obamacare are locked into place, it will be impossible to get rid of it. Right now, there are still ways to stop it.
If any politician is interested in salvaging their integrity and truly looking out for the middle class in America, they will do whatever it takes to defund Obamacare policies, disrupt implementation (especially at the state level) and work on repealing it. They have to know we are still upset over this nightmare and we will not stop until it is gone.
Obamacare means a loss of freedom for all Americans and comes with a fiscal price tag well over the $1.15 trillion alone it will add to federal spending. It is almost criminal to ignore the many consequences of this disaster. Contact Congress today and help Conservative Daily continue the fight against Obamacare.
