Dems Spin, Will Be In Graves Soon
“This is the type of common-sense starting point we need to lower costs for the consumer, improve the quality of care and help stabilize our economy.
Wrong. This bill will do none of the above. It will not lower healthcare costs. You don't order the insuring of 32 million new people with taxpayer money and lower the cost of healthcare. People without health insurance spend 30 to 50 percent less on healthcare than people with it. Putting more people into the system will NOT improve the quality of care. Just like you wouldn't improve the service at the local McDonalds by putting new 50,000 people in line in front of you. What you get is longer lines, worse service. And when you finally get to the head of the queue you might get a $1 double-cheese burger. But then you might not. They might be out and tell you to come back next month. As for it stabilizing the economy, WRONG. The government re-ordering one sixth of the U.S. economy won't have a stabilizing effect. It will have a DE-stablizing effect, especially in the short term. Businesses will still be trying to figure out the requirements and effect of the new law for months if not years to come. It still has to pass the Senate through reconciliation, we'll see what it looks like after that. There is nothing stabilizing about the government making promises and running up debt on future generations.
U.S. Rep. Joseph Sestak, D-7, said: “The health-care reform we passed today will put an end to insurance industry abuses, extend life-saving care to millions, strengthen Medicare, and cut the national deficit.”
Again, more Democratic spin. This monstrosity will NOT put an end to insurance industry "abuses," it will turn them into public utilities, in league with the federal government government to ration care. The bill takes money OUT of Medicare in order to pay to cover the 32 million new citizens. If that's strengthening, please "strengthen" our public schools by lowering our property taxes. This new entitlement will NOT cut the national deficit, it will be like very other entitlement ever passed (from Medicare to Social Security) and increase the deficit in the long run.
The public doesn't like this bill because they don't believe it will do what the Democrats say it will do. It will certainly not provide jobs, (except for the hiring of 16,000 more IRS agents to enforce it) improve health care or reduce the deficit before November.
Both Lentz and Sestak (and/or Specter) are going to have to run for office defending it and the process of political bribes, kickbacks and corruption that got it passed.
The debate has just begun.
