Stop Marxist-Style Euro-Canadian Health Care NOW! July 16, 2009

From Fox News today:

The director of the Congressional Budget Office issued a warning to Democrats Thursday that their health care proposals would raise costs, not lower them.

One day after a Senate panel approved its version of the health care reform plan, the first committee to do so, CBO Director Doug Elmendorf gave a dose of bad medicine to a separate committee.

Asked by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., whether costs would be lowered — also known as “bending the curve” — Elmendorf responded: “The curve is being raised.”

Subsidies to help uninsured people would raise federal health care spending, which is already growing at an unsustainable rate, Elmendorf explained at the hearing. The Medicare and Medicaid cuts that lawmakers have offered to pay for the coverage expansion aren’t big enough to offset the cost trend, particularly in the long term, he said.

House Republican Leader John Boehner seized on the comments, calling on Democrats to scrap their plans in light of the assessment.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell called it a “wake up call” for Democrats.

“The director of the Congressional Budget Office confirmed today what we have been saying for weeks — the health care spending plan that some are trying to rush through Congress would actually make things worse,” McConnell said.

CBO’s numbers come at an inopportune time for Democratic leaders who are trying push through and merge several different health care reform plans in the coming weeks, on orders from President Obama. (Bold is mine)

We can’t take back TARP or the Democrat self-stimulus package, and we can’t stop the “Wise Latina” (sic) from being appointed to the Supreme Court, but we can beat PresBO on health care and we must!

From the Washington Times, PresBO says…

“We cannot kick the can down the road any further,” said Mr. Obama, who was joined at the Rose Garden news conference by Sen. Christopher J. Dodd and members of the American Nurses Association. “Those who would oppose our efforts should take a hard look at just what it is they’re defending. Over the last decade, health-insurance premiums have risen three times faster than wages. Deductibles and out-of-pocket costs are skyrocketing.”

What he doesn’t tell you is that big companies, when forced to cut expenses, will look at a public option for health care, dump millions of people into a public health system ill-suited to handle the job. That’s the reality. You and me being forced into the public system since our employers can look at the cost-reduction side of health care instead of the benefit to their employees.

PresBO, the pols and bureaucrats AND THEIR FAMILIES are taken care of by us. They have the best health care available. You and I get to grovel for the scraps, if PresBO gets his way. That’s unacceptable.

PresBO wants to re-make America into a third-world nation, reflective of his background and character. It must be stopped. First, by defeating Hillary-Care 2, then by defeating Dems in the 2010 Congressional elections, and, finally, bouncing PresBO out after one term.
