President Obama, in a speech in Portland, mocks opponents of the health care bill:
Over the last year, there’s been a lot of misinformation spread about health reform. There’s been a lot of fear mongering, a lot of over heated rhetoric. You turn on the news, you’d see that those same folks who were hollering about it before it passed, they’re still hollering, about how the world will end because we passed this bill. This is not an exaggeration.
John Baynard called the passage of this bill Armageddon. You had others who said this is the end of freedom as we know it.
So, after I signed the bill, I looked around.
I looked up at the sky to see if asteroids are coming. I looked at the ground to see if cracks had opened up in the earth. It turned out it was a pretty nice day. Birds were still chirping. Folks were strolling down the street. Nobody had lost their doctor. Nobody had pulled the plug on granny. Nobody was being dragged away to be forced into some government run health care plan.
The joke is on the American people. There they are, folks, laughing right along with President Obama, not realizing that he is actually telling them exactly what his bill did to them and will do to them in the future. They will not believe until the socialist boot crushes their throats.
The world as we knew it in America did end when socialized health care was passed. It is most certainly an end to the freedom we have come to know. It is, essentially, the first real step in allowing the government to take from those who have and redistribute to those who the government deems needy. There is nothing free about it, at least not to those having to give up their hard earned income to pay for those who can’t do for themselves.
One day, maybe not today or tomorrow, or next year, but when the new health care system is on the verge of insolvency, you can be assured that they will pull the plug on granny, and anyone else who is deemed too-small-to-save.
And, as soon as the health care policy goes active, people will be dragged, by forced mandate through the IRS first, and the criminal justice system if that doesn’t work, into a government run health care plan.
Socialized health care is a stepping stone to even more central planning. We are already “on the brink” as our former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said, and our economy may very well fall apart even without the added pressures of universal health care. Passage of this massive tax on the American people will most definitely not help the situation. If we do experience a massive economic collapse, one could argue that it could quickly turn into Armageddon in America.
Call it misinformation. Call us fear mongers. But it’s all in the bill – you know, the one President Obama didn’t read and the one Congress didn’t write.
