This whole debate is about slowing the growth of Medicare. It has nothing to do with healthcare. Government run heathcare will not increase the quality of healthcare in America, it will probably make it worse.

But this has nothing to do with healthcare. It's about slowing the growth of Medicare through Government rationed healthcare.

The chickens are coming home to roost when it comes to Medicare.

The problem is government can't keep it's promise. Medicare is not supposed to be like an insurance program. Some people said this was a disaster waiting to happen because government couldn't keep up with rising health care costs.

Democrats don't want to admit the system has failed. They want to turn the government into an insurence agency and ration out health care based on statistics.

See when health care costs go up Medicare reimbursement goes up and the government wants to control this by rationing out healthcare. They will do that through reimbursement rates. This is why Obama wants a Fannie Med type panel and he wants Executive control of Medicare reimbursement.

Obama always talks about reducing volume. He told the woman maybe her mother needed a pain pill instead of surgery.

So medical decisions will not be between you and your Doctor but your Doctor and the reimbursement rates Obama's hand picked government panel sets.

So if a Doctor gives an elderly woman pain pills and end of life counseling they will be reimbursed more money from the government. If they give the women surgery, they will be reimbursed less money or penalized.

So yes, people will die when the government begins to ration healthcare in order to slow the growth of Medicare. You really can't get around this. Obama always talks about reducing healthcare services. He talked about the blue pill vs the red pill. He talked about allergy medicine vs. taking your tonsels out. He talked about a pain pill vs surgery. Obama talked about taking too many tests.

You can't reduce volume because Doctors are not psychic or telepathic. When Obama or Pelosi go to the Doctor, I bet they want volume.

They want government ration healthcare for you in order to slow the growth of Medicare.

Medicare and Social Security need reform and then they need to be eventually phased out. This is because the systems are unsustainable because they are Pyramid schemes. They pay out benefits based on workers paying into the system. If the top of the pyramid widens then they need more workers and more taxes added to the system.

We need to switch to privitization and health savings accounts. This will mean that wealth will grow. With Medicare and Social Security it's basically a sum zero game. Money at the bottom pays out benefits at the top. With privitization and health savings accounts the benefits will not be dependent on more taxes and workers added to the pyramid.

It is by the lack of health care options that we are opressed!!!!

A lack of health care options pertaining to your salary bracket... Our health care providers(the business) are limited in the options they can make available to us. If all the options were provided and affordable to us than our providers wouldn't be able to afford to stay in business. it would cut revenue. The administrations F.D.A etc wouldn't allow it. Even they answer to the Monetary System. You see the dominoes in affect?

One of many ways to Oppress a people is through Health care.

Oppressed people = a land Subdued by it's authorities

I'm really serious when I tell you that we have bought into the illusion that all of our systems operate independant. Call it Health care, Housing, Food, Energy etc Religion, Politics, Education.

Unity among the governing authorities

Divisions among the people

It's all Misdirection

When people speak up and ask questions

Our answer consists of imaginary numbers due to this and due to that... Lack of money.... our economy..... Wall St. etc these political debates are staged for the fueling of the illusion which makes us feel like we are free tyranny. and whats funny is that politicians even buy into the Facade. It is mass Deception.

We Have been asleep Long enough! It's time we Wake Up!

Here is wisdom:

Our Economy: (The United States Empire)

I predict "The U.S. Dollar is being attacked, and it will collapse, and bring down all the paper Money in the World"

Paper Money It is being replaced with Invisible Money that you can't See! Intangible Money, YOU can't touch it!!!

"It is electronic money"

The dangerous thing about electronic money is: that it is controled by the banking systems around the world and the jews control the banking systems... This is not an invalid statement, this is the Real Truth/Fact

We already deal with digital Money, because the Majority of us never touch our earnings

We Just Follow The Digital Numbers

Is it pre-planned? Or just gotten out of hand!

Either way it doesn't make a difference when we now who owns the federal reserve and Who Literally owns money!!!!!!!

unlike the past today's currency is not backed up by gold and silver!....

It is built on Interest and temporary Illusionary value within your mind...

Therefore what you are witnessing today is only the beginning...

The first of several economic collapses in the near future and in the years to come...


Israel is about to wage a Big War!!!!

When Israel is surrounded by armies Know that the end is near!!!!!!!!!

The goal here is to slow the growth of Medicare. It has nothing to do with healthcare.

Democrats want to turn the Medicare program which is bankrupting the country, into a massive insurance agency.

Socialism is like a cancer in the bloodstream of America and it keeps growing and growing.

I often hear people say that you can get this or that free from the government. They even give out free cellphones in a program called Safe Link.

Lifeline Assistance is part of a program that was created by the government to provide discounted or free telephone service to income-eligible consumers. To help bring you this important benefit, SafeLink Wireless is proud to offer Lifeline Service. Through our Lifeline Service you will receive FREE cellular service, a FREE cell phone, and FREE Minutes every month! SafeLink Wireless Service does not cost anything – there are no contracts, no recurring fees and no monthly charges.

People need to realize that nothings free. Somebody is paying for this and the Government loves these programs because it creates dependancy on them.

You can buy a Tracfone for 20 bucks. Why does the Government need to give out "free" phones and "free" minutes?
