The President’s words, Bret Bair, Barbara Boxer, and my thoughts on this big fat mess!

FIRST LET ME SAY THIS: I am a political athiest. I vote but I belong to no party. I think the system is corrupt and ninety-nine percent of politicians are corrupt. These are my thoughts simply as a human who has lived long enough to have seen our government in action over and over again. I wish I could be more positive about this.

I am REALLY rushed this morning so if there are typos I apologize right now. Also, if you disagree with the facts I’ve written or have your own opinions about all this, I would LOVE to hear them!!!

Obama: “I don’t know where you get the notion it’s one-sixth of the economy.” (then in the net breath he said,)
“Yes, it’s one-sixth of the economy, but…..”
——————
Strange.
——————
Obama: “The vast majority of people will be able to keep what they have because they’re getting’ a better deal…”
——————
Then what is the nearly trillion-dollar bill about, and why do they have to VASTLY reduce Medicare for the elderly? Why will we be taxed for ten years and yet the program won’t “activate for four years,) I am a bit confused.
Even if you are liberal REALLY check out the Bret Bair interview with the president.

I love the way when obama “talks to” the people he drops his correct diction to get folksy – such as: “gettin”, “fixin” and “loosin”. In his interview with Bret Bair he didn’t directly answer one question; using debating tactics he side-stepped around and went into a blather of words. He kept saying “let me finish my sentence,” but what I noticed was he wouldn’t let Bret finish a question, really…he just kept “talkin”.

I loved the fact that if families earning under $88,000.00 a year had a hard time paying for the insurance or the fine if they don’t get it, our corrupt government would kick in a “supplement” to help their deficiencies. Where does that money come from?

Here are some interesting numbers. There are 304,059,724 people in the USA (not including illegal immigrations – whom by the way, often get medical help, food help, and more – but they don’t file income taxes. The census bureau’s form for this year doesn’t even ask if you are a citizen or not…

Out of 133 million income tax filers (yes 170,059,724 don’t file) 40 million of those filing DON’T pay taxes, but often get refunds. So that leaves only 93,000,000 who pay ALL THE INCOME TAX…..hmmmm. I think I know many of these hard work peasants. I think I am one. That’s a pretty heavy burden with all the job losses and foreclosures, and Wall Street and the banks keep on ticking on with multi-million dollar bonus packages!.

I wrote Senator Barbara Boxer my thoughts about the health care fiasco. This was her response. This is, I am sure, a form letter for all of us peasants who are just too stupid to be written to in an intelligent manner. So let’s be condescending and reiterate what all the politicians always say:

BLAH BLAH BLAH

All this letter says to me is blah, blah, blah.

“Dear Mrs. O’Brien:

Thank you for writing to me about pending health care reform legislation. I appreciate hearing from you.
There is widespread agreement that we must reform our health insurance system, which is a huge financial burden on our families. The status quo is no longer sustainable. Thousands of Americans lose their insurance every day while thousands more are denied coverage. If we do nothing, 45 percent of an average family’s income will go towards health insurance premiums in 2016. And without action, Medicare will be broke by 2017.
On February 25, 2010, President Obama held a summit on comprehensive health insurance reform. I was pleased to see members of both parties participate in this frank and forthright exchange of ideas.
I strongly believe that we must seize this opportunity to move forward on health care reform, and I hope that we can. I will continue to fight for health care reform for Californians and all Americans.
Again, thank you for writing to me. Please feel free to contact me again about this or other issues of concern to you.

Barbara Boxer
United States Senator”

DON’T YOU LOVE THIS? I don’t want to go to her website and fill out another form. Wouldn’t an email be simpler? :☺

Please do not respond to this message. If you would like to comment on legislation, please visit my website and use the correspondence form at https://boxer.senate.gov/contact/email/policy.cfm

My gut level feeling is we will be “screwed and tattooed” if Obama and Biden and their cronies manage to pull this off.

Medicare will be depleted of millions and millions of dollars, we WILL BE TAXED HIGHER TAXES (for ten years – though the implementing of the program won’t start for four years!) and from what I’ve heard – the almighty health care won’t be available for four years!

Excuse the hell out of me – “ALL AMERICAN FAMILIES WILL BE REQUIRED TO GET HEALTHCARE, AND IF THEY DON’T THEY WILL BE FINED”. How can you fine someone who has lost their job and possibly their home?

I want Obama, Senators and Congressmen to have the same plan the peasants will be offered. By the way – what about the care of indigents and illegal aliens?

I don’t feel a bit badly about the president putting his trip off anyway. He was going to Indonesia(where he lived as a child) – to enjoy celebrations of him. What was the reason citizens would be paying for the Australia trip?

Did you see the woman whom the president was dedicating his trip to support the bill? She has cancer and her insurance will no longer cover her. HOWEVER – she is being treated in one of the best cancer care hospitals in the USA and will not be charged for her care. (I am HAPPY for her), but I thought Obama was there to stand up for her not being able to get care because of no insurance.

It’s all such a bunch of bolony! The only change that will happen if it passes is that you and me, our kids, and grandkids will be paying forever on this with higher taxes.

Social Security taxes will go up. Did you know that before you get social security every paycheck is taxed? (of course you did). I bet you might not know that when you get social security it only covers the hospital? You are required to pay over $100.00 a month to get physicians and prescriptions covered – that is taken out of your social security check. Then you need to get a supplement to cover expenses that’s are NOT covered! Did you know after you start receiving social security as your earned help, it is taxed again-considered with “income”. Even our tax consultant said that’s double taxation.

If the bill passes healthcare benefits for seniors(Medicare) will be reduced by millions, and I’ll say it again – TAXES WILL INCREASE.

Did you know social security doesn’t cover glasses or teeth? That is horrible considering the seniors whose teeth need work, and whose vision is poor.
Why does this concern me? My parents were seniors, I hope to qualify by living long enough, and even if you are eighteen now, you may live long enough to be a senior! It concerns us all.

Oh I know the bill is under a trillion dollars – by a pittance.

One last kind of negative comment: I would love to backhand Nancy Pelosi. She can’t decide for us all. Arrogant bitch. (Wow – is that me writing that? Yep. ☺

I know, “Relax, its Just Life”… and I will! I have aired my feelings on this and used my oxygen to empower and relax me, and now I feel better. What other good choice is there, but to choose to be calm and happy, no matter what. Ruining my own mind and body won’t change a thing. My attitude will! ☺

I will assert my power in a positive way. I would be interested in your thoughts on this if you care to share.

If you get overly concerned, close your eyes for a moment and go within. Take a few cleansing breaths and try to let any sense of fear or burden to melt away for now.

At least it is still a country wherein we can voice an opinion. It may not mean anything in the process, but it’s a great relief to me to get this all out. 🙂

    Political atheist! I hear you loud and clear. I’ll have to use that phrase. The only saving grace is that I believe God can use any thing and any platform–including politics (what a MIGHTY GOD, eh?). With that said, I look to HIM for “healthcare reform” through the healing stripes of Jesus. I seek his “bailout plan” according to HIS riches in glory. The war on terror is not against flesh and blood…but against principalities and wickedness in high places. Therefore, I do not look to man, politics, or trillion dollar reforms that will at best “delay” or “smooth over” the need for rooting out evil and corruption by only one means: Making our calling and electoral vote sure as a nation who is still under God…in need of humbling ourselves, praying, seeking HIS face, and turning from our wicked ways; so that we may hear from heaven, have sin forgiven and our land healed!!!! (thanks for rattling my cage my friend–PUMPED!!!)
