First let me remind you the government has no money. When you see them spending, they are spending money they take away from the people who did the
work to earn it. For you it's like winning the lottery, but for those paying for it, it is not. It's less they have to spend on themselves and their
Let me tell you a true story here that might help -
I have a long time employee who's health got so bad he had to take his Social Security early at 62. His troubles were so serious in fact that he was
able to get supplemental approved in just three days which is unheard of. Most have to hire and attorney and go to court for that. He was also able to
Now the other side of this coin you have failed to turn over. The budget for Medicaid was also cutt to help pay for what you are getting. For over a
year, while waiting to find out if they were going to let him die, they kept putting him off on a decision whether or not they could pay for his
surgery. They kept telling him we will have a decision in a few days and did that for over a year. Then his condition went critical and we almost lost
him. He had a very radical surgery from which there was little hope he would live. He miraculously survived even though his hemoglobin was down so low
he should not have lived. His spirit and will is all that saved him.
Why did this happen? The money was directed towards people like you, young people who will vote for Obama next time. Your willing to ignore that as
long as you get yours and they know it. He worked and paid in for 43 years and when he needed help, he could not get it. You have not yet contributed
and are just starting but the money he paid in was diverted to you. They are simply shuffling the deck towards those who they think will vote for
them. Obama could care less about your knee's in fact.
Now to me. I have a pre-existing condition which might lead you to say I should be for Obamacare. Well, here is the truth. The first thing I did is
look into the coverage available through that Bill and guess what, not only is it so high I can't possibly afford it, it's higher than it would have
been to buy it from an insurance company which I could not afford in the first place. The rates varied from around $750 a month to about $1,740 per
month and the limited funds were first come first serve. I came in at the high end. Being a Small Business Owner who earns a modest income, there is
no way I can afford that and they knew that when they wrote it into that phony Bill. I have now worked and paid in for 40 years but for me this scheme
made my situation worse. I'm thinking of going to Canada for care.
Look at the end results. By giving coverage to young people like you through your parents, what have they done? The insurance rates have gone up
dramatically because of it to prevent the insurance companies form going broke complying with it. They have taken money away from those who are
entering old age to fund their scheme and harmed those who have paid in their whole lives. Why? They know their best voter base is among young people
who they handed a large bribe to entice you to vote for them. A bribe that comes from money taken away from those who earned it. No matter how you
slice it, it's welfare to buy votes.
Obama has also given wavers to well over 200 companies and unions. The same companies and unions who funded his last campaign. It's Cronyism at its
definitive worst. GE for instance got a huge break, not to mention they own NBC and it's affiliates and control what news they report. Their CEO is
now the head of Obama's Economic Advisers. You really think this is not a payback? Is it right that if you support Obama your company gets and
exemption? Is it right the unions who are directly responsible for the failures of many businesses are rewarded for backing Obama? Why is it right
that he can so transparently buy votes?
The most important thing here though is that you understand that the Government has NO MONEY. Obama can only take it away from others who earn it and
redistribute it and of course those receiving this money will vote for him.
Whoever your Mother works for will now likely have to lay off employees, if they have not already, as the cost of insurance is driven up by this Bill.
Somebody else can literally loose their jobs to pay for what you are getting. What about them? What about their families? Another thing that will
happen in the dark, is companies will shy away from hiring people with too many children. They will have no choice. They fail, your Mother is out of a
job and you have nothing.
