President Obama: Federal Government 'Will Go Bankrupt' if Health Care Costs Are Not Reigned In


blogs.abcnews.com

President Obama told ABC News’ Charles Gibson in an interview that if Congress does not pass health care legislation that will bring down costs, the federal government “will go bankrupt.” The president laid out a dire scenario of what will happen if his health care reform effort fails. If we don't pass it, here's the guarantee….your premiums will go up, your employers are going to load up more costs on you,” he said.

Wow that is SCARY!!! We must pass the bill now!!!......NOT

I have news for the President. America is on its way to going bankrupt whether the health care bill is passed or not. How on earth would adding millions of people to medicare prevent us from going bankrupt?

To me this is a desperation move, he is now resorting to scaring the American people into supporting the heath care bill. Shame on him for using fear mongering tactics that he has complained about coming from his opponents.

Obama did not seem to care about America going bankrupt while spending money at a record pace this year but now he is concerned..

What a shill! I can read right through this. Here's the missing ingredient... there is an increasing number of us hoping to God that the whole system goes bankrupt - the sooner, the better!!! This promise of his simply makes me even MORE opposed to this abomination!

The sooner we go bankrupt the quicker we will join the U.N., the quicker we join the U.N. the quicker we will be put under the knife of Genocide "Copenhagen Climate Conference", the quicker this happens, the quicker the extraterrestrials come back enslave the rest of humanity (500 Million humans) thats left and use them up till there is no humanity left.

At least theres a plan in place.

from op's source


The president said that the costs of Medicare and Medicaid are on an “unsustainable” trajectory and if there is no action taken to bring them down, “the federal government will go bankrupt.”


If this is the case, then common sense would have told him that he needed to tackle Medicare and Medicaid before trying to fix the whole system.

Nothing but a scare tactic.

There is not one line in the bill GUARANTEEING ANYTHING EXCEPT THE PART THAT WE WILL PAY MORE TAXES.

Everything is based on assumptions. Prices will go up when everything has to be covered and will continue to go up as long as we as Americans continue to choose to live unhealthy lifestyles.

If you will excuse me, I have to finish my big MAC.

This shows how STUPID Obama is.

Health Care cost are Not the reason we are in a depression or the reason we have a x trillion dollar national debt.

I say we impeach this clown before he does something else just as stupid. What, we cannot impeach him because he didn't break the Law.. Fine. Get a Rope!

He forgot to mention that this perverted version of socialized healthcare DOES NOT ADDRESS THE COST OF HEALTHCARE!

It is nothing more than a few tweaks that in the end, simply forces EVERYONE to buy coverage.

Unless the conglomerate of the healthcare/insurance/big pharma entities is dismantled, they are the ones who will ultimately benefit. The federal government is simply useing this as a way to forcibly insert themselves into the money well that is tapping the backs of the taxpayer.

WAKE UP!

This CANNOT be the change that Obama voters had in mind. All of the free socialized welfare benefits that possibly WERE in the minds of poor voters will be drastically overtaken by the costs payed to the conglomerate by those same voters. Universal healthcare is a noble concept, but this travesty has nothing to do with nobility, and will do far more harm than good. Especially in a time when NO ONE can afford it.

Contact your senators, the time for action is now.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. ~Edmund Burke

They did the same thing with the bailouts and stimulus. 'If we don't pass this bailout, the banks/our economy will collapse!' Then it was 'If we don't pass this stimulus, the nation will be in danger!' Now it's 'If we don't pass this health care bill, our federal government will go bust!'

Unfortunately, some will still fall for it.

What bothers me about this is that in the past few months Obama accused the opponents of the bill of scaring people and then he turns around and does the exact same thing to try to get it passed.

The sad thing is that a lot of Americans will watch this and believe it without question.
