Confessions of an ObamaCare Backer A liberal explains the political calculus.

- The typical argument for ObamaCare is that it will offer better medical care for everyone and cost less to do it, but occasionally a supporter lets the mask slip and reveals the real political motivation. So let's give credit to John Cassidy, part of the left-wing stable at the New Yorker, who wrote last week on its Web site that "it's important to... Read full article »

    As I have said before and will keep saying until I have no breath left,
    This is NOT about healthcare
    It's not about the uninsured in their varying numbers.
    It's not about getting little children their shots.
    It's not about pediatricians allegedly amputating feet.
    It's not about Big Pharma or Swine Flu or anything like that.
    It's about GREED, and POWER and CONTROL.
    It's about seizing the economic income of an entire industry in order to manipulate it into programs that will attract votes, but which will in no way result in better healthcare, cost-effective healthcare or lower costs to the middle class.
    It is about hidden programs designed to appease socialists.
    It is about taxing the middle class to make them more dependent on government
    It is about the deliberate assumption of powers to which this government is not legally entitled by a government so insular and rife with corruption that it should be eliminated.

    No problem. I think the deal is that people who have conservative ideas and ideals have felt silenced by this administration. The frustration of people like me is bubbling up and spilling over. I will not be silent anymore. I encourage you to speak out as well. Perhaps the sounds of all our voices can catch the attention of Washington.

    I am and have been extremely outspoken right from obamas campaigning........I haven't let up. I am finding my patience running thin with others that have alike thoughts but will not speak out because they feel that it isn't PC...........Well people are about to get a shot in the ass here pretty soon........and it ain't gonna feel good............but I am only able to respond to them I told you so....something really bid has got to happen to get someones attention.........teabagers are all well and good for the warm and fuzzy............it's beyond the warm and fuzzy.........things have got to get hot and hairy........but everyone has a big mouth but are waiting for someone else to do all of the heavy weight stuff...........America has no backbone............and with people like General Casey leading the pack............well we are pretty much screwed.........He should be knocked down to Coronal of the Urinal

    I hope it won't come to that. But it might. *sigh*
    All I ever wanted was to raise my kids, see them grow and marry and enjoy my life. I never thought I would be rich, but I thought at least with a college degree and a teaching certificate, I would survive. Now I am not so sure. I read the news and shake my head and all I can do is hold in the tears and hope for the best. They are bullies. And we are letting them steal our lives. It has to stop.

    I see what's happening I have expected this but not at this pace. I figured when it came to this point in our lives that it would be from someone a bit more slick, tactful.........but this guy just wants to defecate on us, this country and it's entire system................now they are moving to a one world currency as well as a government.........in my belief system once all of this takes place it won't be long for mankind to implode.........I find it exciting, and scary all at the same time.....

    The last time I was this depressed was when I was in college. I deliberately sought art as a major with fibers as the concentration because when it all "went down" I planned to move out to Ft. Davis or Alpine, to raise sheep and goats, spin wool and have something to barter once the economy fell. Unfortunately, I don't have those options now. When I was in college Carter was screwing us. Now that my kids are in college, Obama is.

    I believe that being worried over things we don't really have control over just gives me more gray hair....lol..........I am going to ride this out and I will rebel until I die if necessary............I give obama the one finger salute I don't listen to his voice that is in my control, I don't and will never look to this person the way he wants us to......I depend on no one.......in this life for anything.......

    A former communist friend was so mad last week at the house passing this crap. He said--this is communism that he left--why would you upset 100% of a working program to fix 10% or less.

    The really sad and pathetic part of all of this is that we need reform and instead the Democrats went for control instead. :(

    So true. A wasted opportunity to make things better. So often "utopian perfection" is the enemy of real improvement.
