Letter: Tired of Democrat’s lies

By on August 27, 2009

I am so tired of the lies that we are hearing from Obama and the Democratic party concerning the so-called Health Care bill. When you hear them talk, they constantly deny what the bill actually says. If this bill passes, it will interfere with your entire way of life. It is so socialistic that we will not recognize the freedom that we now have.

Why do we not have our representatives here having town meetings? Why do we have a Senator from Ohio appearing here trying to convince us that this is a great bill? We can read what is in the bill for ourselves and as we have found out, the bill does not match the words they say. I wonder why my representative, Bill Foster (D), phone (630) 406-1114, e-mail bfoster@mail.house.gov, will not hold a town hall meeting to explain why he thinks this bill is so good for us? For instance, on page 16 of the health bill, is a provision that makes individual private medical illegal. Or why on page 30 does the bill say a government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you will get—and unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process.

Page 425 of the bill states that the government will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. Appears to lock in estate taxes ahead of time. Apparently when you die.

One more page of the 1,018-page bill is page 65: Taxpayers will subsidize all union retiree and community organizer health plans (Read: SEIU, UAW and ACORN). Health care for all illegals in this country is also a part of this bill. You need to get a copy of this bill for yourself. Go to http://blog.flecksoflife.com/ and get yourself a copy of the main points of each of the 1,018 pages, or print out the whole bill for yourself.

Folks, this is not my America. this is not the America many of us served and are proud of. You need to educate yourself. This so-called “health care” bill will make you think we are living in a socialistic country. You need to call your representatives to make your opinion known. Here are a few phone numbers and e-mails: Obama’s White House, (202) 456-1111, and president@whitehouse.gov and vice.president@whitehouse.gov. Biden’s number is (202) 224-8391. Senator Richard Durbin’s (D) phone number is (202) 224-2152 or (312) 353-4952 and e-mail is dick@durbin.senate.gov.

Once again, all of you need to get involved because the final bill that will probably come out of this mess will affect everything about you for the rest of your life. The people in Congress have forgotten that they work for us, and we need to get them back on track.
Remember, we have a primary election coming up in February 2010, and a November election in 2010. All the people responsible for creating such a boondoggle need to be replaced.
