I know there are many who support the concept of Obamacare or Pelosicare – whatever you call it. But do you think these people are aware of the following that are IN THE BILL passed by Pelosi’s House?
Then perhaps we should ensure they know about things like a MANDATORY $15,000 policy for their family, or a fine of 2.5% of their income for not buying one?
Do YOU have FIFTEEN GRAND to give to the government in the midst of this government-caused recession?
Do YOU really believe that lowering your standard of living to provide healthcare benefits to people too dumb or too healthy to buy their own is a good use of – what? several months’ of – YOUR WORKING DAY?
Do YOU think that you should lower your standard of living to pay FIFTEEN GRAND the Feds to give healthcare to illegal aliens – lawbreakers by definition – just to buy their votes?
Do YOU think that giving FIFTEEN GRAND to the government is better for your kids’ future than putting it into their college fund?
Do YOU think that giving FIFTEEN GRAND to the same folks who can’t deliver the mail on time will give you and yours a realistic shot at decent healthcare once they are running it and deciding what procedures YOU can have?
Our task is to reduce public support for the bill by publicizing its provisions, notably:
1. The $400 billion cut in Medicare
2. The inevitable scarcity that will result from the addition of 35 million new patients with no new doctors or nurses
3. The fine on the uninsured of 2.5 percent of their income if they don’t buy insurance
4. The high cost of these mandatory insurance policies ($15,000 per family)
5. The low level of subsidy available for the uninsured (only after they pay 8-12 percent of their incomes)
6. The likelihood of a $1,700 increase in the average family’s premiums
7. The possibility of up to five years in prison for failing to buy insurance or pay the fine
8. The taxation of medical devices like pacemakers, wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, hearing aids, etc.
9. The tax on sick people (increasing the threshold for deducting medical expenses from 7.5 percent to 10 percent of income
10. The additional fiscal burden on the states of the increase in Medicaid eligibility
11. The 40 percent tax on health insurance premiums that will affect households earning more than $75,000 by the fifth year of the plan.
