You have the right to vote for whomever you wish.
You also have a right to know what you’re voting for. Our mainstream media is not doing its job, not even slightly. While evidence is popping up every day showing the current White House to be a socialist, out-of-step, radically inspired administration, there are only a handful of media outlets that are giving Americans even a smidgen of that information.
Worse yet, most are helping our President with his leftist agenda. Tales of Lindsay Lohan’s antics, “The Bachelor’s” new conquest, and Lebron’s nail-biting decision fill the airwaves of the liberal media, giving a false sense of security to most Americans. Even so, if you were to ask people on the street to be completely honest, they would tell you that “in their gut” they know something ain’t right.
They can feel that something has changed, that there IS a “fundamental transformation” happening in this country. It’s all happening too fast, isn’t it? The roller coaster is speeding up and going out of control in an election year, a year where Congress is usually on their best behavior.
It makes you wonder why.
Barack Obama recently appointed a Medicare Czar- a man named Donald Berwick- who will be running the Medicare system in our country. This should be big news to the millions of elderly folks who rely on Medicare, right? Evidently not. Most major news organizations- the same ones who spent a week investigating the rumor of Sarah Palin’s breast implants- ignored this story.
Why is this important? Well Donald Berwick is not your ordinary, guy. Like most of Obama’s czars, he doesn’t think in terms of the “free market” or capitalism. He’s a self-avowed socialist, a man who believes in redistribution of wealth, along with government rationing of health care. He was appointed by Obama in a controversial way, something called a “recess appointment” instead of undergoing the usual scrutiny of a Senate confirmation process.
It’s a rarely used, sneaky, backdoor way for Obama to get this man into his inner fold.
As Senator Mitch McConnell stated:
“As if shoving a trillion dollar government takeover of health care down the throat of a disapproving American public wasn’t enough, apparently the Obama Administration intends to arrogantly circumvent the American people yet again by recess appointing one of the most prominent advocates of rationed health care to implement their national plan. Democrats haven’t scheduled so much as a committee hearing for Donald Berwick but the mere possibility of allowing the American people the opportunity to hear what he intends to do with their health care is evidently reason enough for this Administration to sneak him through without public scrutiny.”
You see, Donald Berwick is a huge proponent of the health care system in Great Britain, the system which turns away women in labor, has a 6 times greater death rate from prostate cancer than the U.S., does not give certain life-saving drugs to breast cancer patients because of cost, and in the words of one researcher, “Have waiting lists for waiting lists.”
Hey, what’s not to like…?
While Germany and other western European countries have decent health care systems run by private insurance, Great Britain is unique in that it uses a system modeled on Lenin’s dream of universal ‘free’ provision- universal health care. This Soviet-style health care was pushed through years ago by a man named Nye Bevan. The ‘free provision’ ultimately destroyed private health care for most people and created the system they have in place today.
In a report called Delay, Denial, and Dilution, Laura Casper and David G. Green, describe the UK health care system this way: UK health care is cheap. They spend less on health care than does any comparable nation, but the cheapness of the NHS is subsidized by the exhaustion and demoralization of the staff and by the second-rate service it so often provides. It is the cheapness of the miser who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. And it is a cheapness that demeans patients as supplicants and which hides the medical realities of rationing from them.
So Donald Berwick, a socialist, wants to bring a failing British, communist-inspired health care system into the United States. Why do the words “communist”, “socialist”, and “Obama’s Czars” all seem to tie together time and time again? Why would a man be inspired by a health care system that is CLEARLY subpar, one that rations care to the point of killing people?
And why would Obama WANT that man to run the elderly care in our country?
Berwick has stated publicly, “the decision is not whether or not we will ration care, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”
Hey seniors, how does it make you feel to know that the man who is now in charge of YOUR health care, YOUR life believes in rationing care? How do you feel about a President who would appoint a man- during a recess in Congress to avoid Senate hearings- to be in charge of YOUR body for the rest of your life?
How many of you believed Barack when he promised you that there would be no rationing under his health care plan?
Sadly, most seniors will be unaware of Mr. Donald Berwick because our press will keep this dirty little secret from them. They will turn on the Today Show and watch Matt Lauer make raspberry lemonade and show us how to tile our kitchen floor. They won’t understand the ramifications of Obama’s latest action until they go to an emergency room one day and are denied care.
By then it will be too late.
And for those of us who aren’t seniors, yet…we will be.
Obama just screwed ALL of us, young and old.
Our media is complicit in the rape.
