Who Is Going To Pay For This Healthcare?
Anyone making more than one million dollars a year, that’s who. Sounds good, right? Yea, make those rich people pay for Healthcare.
What if that millionaire is your boss? Aaand he only has six or seven employees and can’t afford the new tax? You may lose your job. Many small businesses will shut down altogether. Healthcare will result in thousands of jobs being lost nationwide.
The government also wants to take away any little crumbs we use that give us a tax break, like mortgage interests and charitable donations. How about that?
Besides, we have National Healthcare—it’s called Medicaid—it’s for anyone who can’t afford health insurance. All you have to do is sign up. It’s been around for years. Surprised?
You won’t believe this one. At a town hall meeting at the Whitehouse in June a woman told the president that her mother couldn’t get a pacemaker the first go round ’cause she was too old. Then the heart specialist saw how vibrant she was and reversed the decision. The 105 year-old is still going strong.
The daughter had a question for the president: Whatever new healthcare system that he and Congress devised will there be room in it for the kinds of medical decisions that saved her mother’s life?
The president skirted around the issue and quickly remarked that … sometimes people will just have to forego a medical procedure and take a pain pill instead. Say whaaat?
My question for President Obama and Congress is this: Will you and your families be using National Healthcare?
What is your question?
