Mr President About Health Care Plan and HR3200

Posted by alhavakia on September 29, 2009

Mr. President, about the Health care plan – you said:

“If you misrepresent what’s in this plan, we will call you out.”

These are your words President Obama, during your health care address to Congress earlier this month. So, I think it only fair that you must play by the same rules – If you misrepresent what’s in this plan, we the American people will call you out.

We have heard you, Mr. President, say [many times] that your healthcare plan will not cut medicare benefits; so I must ask “Mr. President, have you read the section where Medicare Advantage (MA) programs will be cut by more than $172 billion?” Which will result in approximately six million American seniors losing ‘affordable’ access to MA plans, three million of which will lose their current plans.

An independent analysis by the Lewin Group shows – as many as 114 million Americans could actually lose their current coverage. These Americans would instead end up on a government-run health plan under House Democrats’ proposal H.R. 3200.

Mr. President you insisted that middle-class families wouldn’t see a tax increase – you have stated this repeatedly to the American people. And during your appearance on ABC’s This Week – you reiterated this promise. Have you no knowledge of what this bill contains? or Do you think Americans are so ignorant they can’t decipher the very words before their eyes? Would you please address, Page 167 of H.R. 3200, section 401: “TAX ON INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT ACCEPTABLE HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.”

You pledged your reform would not increase the deficit [not even a little], yet the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimate an increase of $329 billion would be added to the deficit over the next ten years?

You insisted

    Illegal immigrants would not be included

in this plan, yet there is no mechanism included in the House bill to verify whether individuals are in fact, U.S. citizens or legal immigrants before they receive government benefits. And when House Republicans offered two amendments to correct this [during the committee process] both were rejected by Democrats. The first, preventing illegal immigrants from being automatically enrolled into Medicaid. The second, requiring screening [for federally-subsidized healthcare] ensuring immigrants were of legal status.

    You also talked about

including a “whole series of Republican ideas” in your healthcare reform. Mr. President, it seems you are misguided in interpreting what the American people want. Let me state “This is not about Democrats, Republicans, Independents or any group – OTHER THAN the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    Yes Mr. President, I shout

American people in an attempt to be heard. My ancestors, whether Native American, Emigrants or Immigrants, worked hard and fought hard to ensure a better life in these United States of America.

At this point, Mr. President, I have some direct questions to ask you. As I am sure many other Americans have these same questions, could you please address these questions in a ‘Public Media Forum’ by simply answering with a yes or no? Please do not reply with cursory answers such as “It’s not that simple” or “You misinterpret the meaning of …” or “the general public fails to understand” blah, blah, blah.

Believe it or not, the average American is much smarter than we are given due credit. Americans do understand English, because regardless of what others might think – it is The Language of Our Land!

My questions are:

  • Is there currently a health care plan (America’s Healthy Future Act) being debated in the United States Senate?
  • Will Americans be fined (up to $1,900) if they do not purchase health insurance, regardless of whether they think they cannot afford to purchase any plan?
  • And if they refuse to pay the fine, do they risk being thrown in jail for a year or fined another $25,000?
  • And is it true the IRS would be coming after me to collect?
  • What really perplexes me, Mr. President, is how adding (fines) insults and (additional fines) injury, with threat of possible arrest, would be considered “in the best interest of Americans, or their good health.”

    Mr. President, you have spent many months trying to convince [and gain support from] the American people on the Healthcare Plan being proposed, and if it’s good enough for The People – Will you give up your current [elite] government plan and “Opt” to use the very plan you state is “very good” for the rest of Americans?

    Mr. President, I have many more questions for you, but I do realize you are a very busy man and I shall refrain from further questions – for the moment. You need not reply to or acknowledge me personally either for this same reason.

    Our government panders to the 20 to 30 plus (?) illegal immigrants allowing them free subsidies from taxpayers in the US. California–a Sanctuary State has one of the worst records that currently languish under the immense burden of near bankruptcy, instead of –ATTRACTING–ICE to illegal business operations. Certain legislators in Sacramento, led by Gilbert Cedillo-D has authored a lame brain resolution condemning any interference in immigration enforcement. Congressman Brian Bilbray-R Calif. reminds Sen. Cedillo that this resolution breaks the laws of the Constitution. “He should look up the separation of powers section and this resolution is nothing more than political posturing.” Cedillo urges President Obama to declare an immediate moratorium on immigration policies and practices until a comprehensive reform of immigration is enacted. The resolution states ” The State of California values all of its residents, whether they be citizens, legal residents, or undocumented immigrants, and strives to enable all residents to work and live free from discrimination, exploitation, and repressive federal immigration enforcement.” This man certainly has no love for the legal American worker and should be immediately discarded from office as his words are a form of treachery to the jobless people hurting.

    Why wouldn’t certain legislators want health care for foreign labor, because they have an over abundance of illegal immigrant families to financially support? Our own government is so absorbed in protecting every other countries border? They remain unconcerned to our poor replica border fence that should have been a two-tier periphery, with border patrol surveillance lanes in between, as originally planned by Rep. Duncan Hunter. Every time a good enforcement plan is written, it’s methodically cut to pieces by pro-illegal worker politicians and open border fanatics. Though we spend billions on our armed forces in foreign lands, the rich countries in Europe just forward token troops and little money: while our nation is literary falling apart at the seams–or its rivets?

    Any moment now I expect to hear of yet another collapsing ailing city bridge, deteriorating waterworks, the underground pipes and eroding highway. Our cities are already exhibiting inward decay, but years of neglect by the very people who’s supposed to protect us do nothing? I have reiterated watch “The Crumbling of America” on the History (International) channel in the next few weeks and learn? This is where your tax dollars should be going? We must not allow the Administration as in previous times keep sending our precious tax dollars to other countries. These politicians are deaf, dumb and intentionally blind to the rigors our industrial nation is going through. Not just Democrats, but the Republicans have had their sticky fingers in the bad apple–SPECIAL INTEREST–barrel, where money is plentiful. It’s like they are intentionally trying to turn our magnificent country into a third world nation, while making other cheap labor countries, on an even par with our sovereign society as US wages tumble? Then Again the Council of Foreign Relations have been amplifying its agenda of free movement of cheap labor through North America for years?

    Most of these other lands have been at each others throats for centuries, so why do we expect any metamorphism into something any different? Only change can come from within, not by our nation expending billions of dollars, American lives? We must build our own borders fences, tall and strong and meant to keep out drug dealers, criminal aliens, terrorists and the never ending tracks of illegal aliens. Our politician’s noses are involved in too much foreign policy, while our aging infrastructure implodes. Trillions of dollars are spirited out the country, while we gain little in return. Washington–MUST–start giving back to the jobless American worker by placing a 5 year moratorium on all immigration, even legal? The next politicians should deliver us from any new sinister path to citizenship or better referred to as BLANKET AMNESTY? Follow the “Rule of Law” and not twist it into something else for their own convenience, as it will come back to haunt them at the voting booth. Unless ACORN steps-in with another fed contract and handles sign-ups for the ballot box? In that case will still see absentee ballots for the deceased people, pets and anybody who has learned that you need no government picture ID to sign on to vote.

    The 1986 immigration reform bill dismally failed last time and all we inherited was 5 million illegal immigrants that still keep on coming with their impoverished hands out. Anti-Illegal immigrant forces are growing in numbers to stop another travesty. They acknowledge it could end up costing billions, perhaps even trillions of dollars. Nationwide we have seen the advent of closing hospitals and emergency rooms that have been submerged everyday by swarms by penniless foreigners and their families. Yes! We need health care reform. Americans are dying, going bankrupt , falling under the spell of debt collectors. The special interest lobbyists are causing mass hysteria by lying to the people. Many insurance companies are under this bombardment in television, radio and mass media. Their Status quo wants no change to their profits or high flying CEO’s making millions of dollars. on patients backs? I want health care reform, for the sake of my step daughter who died of Cancer, because the insurers said it was a pre-existing condition and they couldn’t continue to insure her?

    It has become an enigma–THAT THE EMPLOYERS WHO HIRE THEM-LEAVE THE MAJORITY OF SICK PEOPLE ON THE STEPS OF EMERGENCY ROOMS. SO THAT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY ENDS THERE? THEY DRIVE AWAY WITH A CLEAR CONSCIOUS? THEN IS LEFT FOR THE TAXPAYERS CHECK BOOK TO PAY THE BILL? THOSE EMPLOYERS SHOULD BE HUNTED DOWN AND HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR EVERY CENT. We have already been warned by the census bureau of overpopulation in the not too distant future. WE now have a very unique deterrent called E-Verify, that is a part of the SAVE ACT and our lawmakers should stop procrastinating and make it permanent for every worker? Washington knows their walking on quicksand, if the try to under fund or spirit away E-Verify this time around? The corrupting influences from the special interest lobby, have failed to induce many lawmakers to table E-Verify. In our future it could have many other uses other than extracting unauthorized labor from the workplace. Once fully installed it could check state drivers license applicants, insurance, school and higher education registrations and hospital admittances.
    Americans have been unknowingly paying taxes to underwrite subsidies for the illegal population for decades. This is the biggest draw to American jobs, because the employers who hire them are sentient that taxpayers will foot the bills for education, health food stamps, housing and other government benefit consignments that even as citizens are denied. Keep the phone calls coming at 202-224-3121 LOOK FOR ANSWERS AT NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIAL WATCH & OVERPOPULATION AT CAPSWEB? These websites can identity politicians who actually work for the American people and others whose immigration grading level is unsatisfactory to stay in office? Have you heard about any large ICE raids lately? ICE got the order to cease and desist from the motley Democratic leadership. They are also using their influence to either weaken the federal training program 287 G that gives local police federal right to hold for questioning suspicious individual’s immigration status and to rescind the no-match-letter capability in determining a person’s right to work?

      Wow, it is obviously you spent a lot of time to compose such a comment. But, what is most obvious [and impressive] is that fact that you are – involved, diligent, have done your homework, and very informative with studious insight. Keep up the great work and maybe more Americans will get involved.

      Until we STOP worrying about ‘offending’ this guy or that guy, [especially our frienemies] and start taking care of our own first – this country will not get back on track. And if the American people don’t start demanding accountability and keep a watchful eye on our elected [and appointed] representatives – it’s only going to get worse. We are losing more and more rights and the government is gaining more and more control – as it goes to new numbers. The really sad part of all this – most Americans don’t even know what their rights are!

      Here’s a couple more great resource sites you might want to take a look at: http://www.rollcall.com if you want to know how your congressman or senator votes; and http://www.opensecrets.org if you want to know who gives money to which politician. Both sites have a wealth of information that every American should keep track of.
