Does anybody realize what is going on in regards to what they are trying to do to our healthcare??? Now, I know everybody does not have coverage, which is sad, but they are going to ruin our system in order to accomodate a minority of our population. I heard on the radio today testimony of an official telling Congress that the elderly are the ones driving up our costs and in the future, he said, we need to analyze the cost/benefits to see what their care should be. Does this send a chill down your spine or what!!! Sorry, Grandma, you're 80, and you don't have much to live for anymore, you don't get your medicine...may God have mercy on your soul. In the stimulus bill, they allocated money to convert EVERBODY"S medical records to electronic files so that they can monitor various treatments to see their costs versus benefits. This is INSANE!!! This is where our stance on abortion really comes into play. We need to value EVERY life, no matter how old or young. This is the kind of "survival of the fittest" that eugenistists believe in. We need to really get the word out to our Reps and Senators letting them know THIS WILL NOT BE OKAY.
Another thing...they are talking about paying for this healthcare by considering our employer-paid medical benefits as income and taxing it. What will that do to jobs? In the middle of a recession? These people are mad!!! McCain was talking about doing that during the campaign and Obama ran ad after ad telling people they would be getting taxed on their benefits. Now, Obama is considering doing the very same thing.
I wish more people paid attention to what is going on, but they're all too busy watching E! or Judge Judy...anybody else feel like I do? I recently read the book "The Illuminati" by Larry Burkett, if you read it, you'll see how it eerily mimics what is going on in our world today.
