ObamaCare and the 2nd Amendment?
Insurance premiums are
rising. A hospital in southwestern Pennsylvania will no longer deliver
babies after March 31st. Small businesses are laying off
workers, cutting the hours of others and shifting jobs to China.
And now Obama has
proclaimed that under his Affordable Healthcare Act, doctors should ask
their patients if they have a gun in their home and offer safety tips to
those who do. Welcome to the United States of America under the crushing
intrusions of Obamacare.
The government takeover of
healthcare means a loss of freedom for all Americans and comes with a
fiscal price tag well over the $1.15 trillion alone it will add to federal
spending. A large enough percentage of Americans disagree with Obamacare to
the point that we could influence Members of Congress to stop it and fight
for ultimate repeal. They may believe we have forgotten about it, so let’s
remind them that we are well aware of its consequences
It is almost criminal to
ignore the many consequences of this disaster.
Obamacare is killing jobs,
raising taxes, destroying choice and limiting freedom. We need to repeal
it, now. Even Democrats who overwhelmingly supported it are beginning to
change their minds. In the coming months and years you are likely to see
similar “oops” moments occur again and again, as more government will be
necessary to fix whatever this piece or that piece of Obamacare broke.
But, as we suspected, it is
not just the expense of Obamacare or the overbearing government
regulations, we will have to wade through. As we are seeing with gun
control, Obama can easily use the thousands of pages of Obamacare to push
through his agenda on a variety of issues and gain more control over the
American people, leaving our personal freedoms in the wake. Your insurance
costs are going to rise as you have less access to quality care. And then,
when you finally do get in to see your doctor, you may find yourself
discussing your Second Amendment rights while on the examination table. What
else will Obama decree that doctors should be discussing with patients?
Taxes? The size of government? Free speech rights?
The umbrella of Obamacare
is beginning to open up and threatens to swallow us all. Thousands of new
IRS agents have been added to make sure we comply with purchasing
more than 20 new taxes …
more than a TRILLION dollars to our deficit in 10 years …
our options when it comes to care …
insurance premiums soaring …
our privacy …
It is a nightmare. Remind
Congress that you do not want it. It must be stalled, defunded, and
Obamacare is allowed to survive, then our Constitution has no meaning and
our Republic is finished. It will engender a takeover of 1/6 of our
economy, create permanent dependency, induce unsustainable inflationary
pressure on the cost of healthcare and health insurance, and saddle the
next generation with crippling debt.” – Daniel Horowitz, RedState.com
