Obama and the Dems Plan to RAM Socialized Medicine Through the Congress!

Obama and the Dems Plan to RAM Socialized Medicine Through the Congress!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

Obama, and his fellow socialists in Washington, have apparently decided to go it alone on so-called healthcare reform and RAM their ObamaCare, socialized medicine, through the Congress without any GOP support and without the support of the American people. The narcissism of our President and the lust for power by his lapdogs, the Democrats/Socialists in Congress, is such that they are completely convinced that they know better than you what you want and need and they are going to take action to force American citizens to bend to their will on their plans for healthcare reform. There is a name for this. Actually, there are several names for this sort of behavior. A couple leap to mind. Dictatorship is one, the other is SOCIALISM, and still another is Fascism!

What we Americans are observing in our nation's capital is a governing body in the throes of neo-fascism, neo-marxism, and neo-socialism! We have a run-away, out-of control, rogue legislature bent on the subjugation of the American citizenry to their every whim. Right now, that whim is total power over the lives of all Americans through an overhaul of the American Healthcare System - otherwise known as ObamaCare!

The American people don't want it, don't want anything to do with it, and yet - the Congress, eager to please their own socialist Presidential Administration is hell bent on forcing the American people to accept THEIR dictates on healthcare - and we are told in the President's own words to "sit down and shut up!"

There is an article at you must read. In that piece, Robert Gibbs, Obama's spokesman (referencing some GOP lawmakers standing firm against ObamaCare) is quoted as having said: "Only a handful seem interested in the type of comprehensive reform that so many people believe is necessary to ensure the principles and the goals that the president has laid out." I would remind Mr. Gibbs that it is precisely those comprehensive principles and goals of President Obama the American people have rejected and those Republican lawmakers are doing what they should do - and that is - to vote the way their constituents, back home, strongly suggest they SHOULD vote! You'll find this entire story HERE.

In the past few days, we have warned that THIS was exactly what could be expected of the Obama Admonistration.

While we are in the "warning posture" allow us to warn you of something else. The President is hell-bent on establishing a "single-payer" type of socialized medicine in America. I know he SAYS he isn't in favor of that... but we are convinced that he is - and ObamaCare, as it is now consituted, will lead directly to "single-payer". You can count on it.

And you folks enamored of the Canadian socialized healthcare system... I hope you have noticed the news out of Vancouver, BC, over the past couple of days. It seems some 6,000 surgeries may have to be delayed! The story can be found on the site at The reports, supposedly from leaked documents, claim that a portion of the Canadian healthcare system will be delaying some 6,000 surgeries as they look to close nearly a quarter of its operating rooms starting in September and to cut 6,250 surgeries, including 24 per cent of cases scheduled from September to March and 10 per cent of all medically necessary elective procedures this fiscal year. You should read this article. You'll find the story

Over in the Mother Country, things are not looking so good, either. The Daily Mail, reporting from the UK, has the following story: "Woman gives birth on pavement 'after being refused ambulance." I'm not sure even I understand this story! You should read it for yourself

Look, a part of the reasoning for Obama having his spokesman out in public stating Obama hasn’t given up on the Public Option portion of his healthcare reform package is simple. Without the Public Option, enthusiasm for Health Care Reform, especially among the Democrat/Socialists, collapses. The Democrat/Socialist will not support ObamaCare without it. So, if Obama wants their support, and he does, he absolutely has to leave the Public Option in the plan. (Public Option translated simply means a government-run health insurance company.) The plain truth is, and we all know it, if the government sets up a government-run health insurance company, it will put the private, for profit, companies out if business - and soon there will be only one option and that is “single-payer,” “government-run," socialized healthcare, or - as we like to call it - ObamaCare.

Step back a moment and consider our public education system in America. It is now the laughing stock of the world. It is government-run education. (We call them "Government Schools!) Now turn your objective gaze upon the healthcare system in America. It is a healthcare system that currently delivers the most advanced healthcare in the world. It is difficult to imagine that we would entertain, even for one moment, the thought of destroying such a system by turning it over to the government to run - as we have our education system. I mean, what we are actually saying is - the government has done such a swell job running our schools that we ought to let them run our healthcare system, too. Does that not chill your blood?

We continue to hear the figure of 47 million "uninsured people in America" bandied about. Did that figure ever bother you? It did a lot of us. It bothered the folks over at They decided to study it and, as a result, they say this: "The study looks in detail at the often touted 45.7 million uninsured Americans and concludes that a much smaller number—16 million Americans—is the number that should be informing the debate. Given the millions of people who qualify for existing government insurance programs but do not take the benefits, the population making more than $50,000 a year who are uninsured, and the many non-residents who are ineligible for insurance, the more informative number of Americans for the health care reform debate is 5 percent of the population or 16 million." That, dear reader, is a far cry from 47 million! You'll find this excellent article HERE.

Again we urge you to keep the pressure on. The battle to save the American healthcare system is only just joined. We must stop socialized medicine in it's tracks. Contact your Senators and your Congressperson and let them know, in no uncertain terms, that you will NOT vote for them if they support ObamaCare in any way - shape or form.

Former Texas Congressman Dick Armey once said: "To diagnose our problems, we must understand the full anatomy of the political economy -- especially the invisible foot of the government."
