The flaws in Obama’s health plan will add to the nation’s debt burden

President Obama’s preparation for the presidency was a career in helping the poor through funds provided by the government. He had no experience in economics. His cause was more government-funded services, and the people he surrounded himself with were of the same stripe.

So now that we are faced with an economic crisis of debt that could severely wound the country, he is ill-equipped to face the problem. It is only under duress that he has been forced to address it.

The crisis we have is partially caused by unlimited spending by the legislative and executive branches. But the real culprits that have to be addressed are the three big entitlements: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Between them they represent the majority of the nation’s non-military expenditures.

Elected officials are afraid to correct the situation because they believe they will suffer defeat at election time.

If this isn’t bad enough, we have Obamacare in the wings. It is highly unpopular because it is poor legislation and does nothing to address the main problem—skyrocketing health care costs paid by American families.

Raising the age on future recipients of Social Security to 69 is certainly a benign move. People are living longer, in better health and working longer. They don’t need early retirement and the country can’t afford it.

Medicare and Medicaid need to be reworked. In New York State, Medicaid is a Cadillac plan for a state deeply in debt.

The first thing Obamacare needs to correct is the name of the bill. We suggest changing it from the Affordable Care Act to the Bankrupt the Country and its People Act. That would be more accurate.

And the people of the nation get it. The most recent Associated Press poll shows 45 percent of Americans oppose the health bill while only 35 percent support it—the lowest level since the bill passed, and sliding down with each new poll.

The law as it stands is so poorly written that thousands of individuals and companies have been exempted from portions of it.

Obamacare has to be reworked so the benefit is to the hard-working people of America, whose medical costs are skyrocketing, and the expense is minimal to the taxpayers.

The bottom line is the nation can’t become fiscally sound until these entitlement expenditures are reduced to a level the government can sustain.

'obamacare is a failure' jimmy, the k-town toddler gurgles. 2 and half years ago he expressed this.
well, let me look foreward 10 years. the k-town kook has been stubbornly refusing o-care. even though he has diabetes, high blood pressure, freakishly high cholesterol, a gun fetish, bed sores due to lack of activity, carpel tunnel syndrome 'cause his need to assume the identity of 10 - 40 characters on 'buffalo topix', obvious alcoholism, probably a 'pain pill' situation, and on and on (i'm not cruel enough to mention mental problems) it goes. 10 years from now, that fat fuk will log onto the o care site, meekly admit his 23 pre-existing conditions, and be accepted.

I believe that Vladimir Putin would have done a much better job at creating a new health care plan.
As usual, Obama is clueless, disoriented and a failure.

Bflo Necon two things first that is a nice bit of misinformation on the " Obamaphone"
Here is some reading on it.
http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-ph...
Two if Obamacare is so bad why don't the Rebs come up with something better and replace " Obamacare" and stop messing around trying to defund it?
I agree something has to be done with it but I think it should be redone, somethings taken out and other points made stronger.

You are correct, tbird, except they actually started free land line phones for people on Medicaid back when W's daddy was president.

I remember a local "character" telling me that he and his retarded wife just got hooked up with a free phone because they were on medicaid and the government justified giving them a phone as a medical expense because they might have to call the doctor. Right away, I knew the idiot was going to be calling those phone sex lines, running up the bill. About a month later he came up to me complaining that they were going to cut off his phone unless he paid an $800 bill for calling phone sex lines.

I told him to call the phone company and after 2 minutes, they could tell he was retarded and didn't know any better. That is what he did. They wrote off the bill and put a block on the phone for 1-900 calls

Tbird, did you get a free phone back in 1977 when you were on food stamps?

No but I am sure you did when you were in college on the taxpayers money.

Nope. Never got a free phone.
