In his own words: Obama's goal is to eliminate all private health insurance (VIDEO)

The only "change" Obama offers is going from bad to worse.  "Yes we can" ruin our country.

It would not be so bad if he would say the truth.  But going around saying that people can keep their private insurance is a lie, and I wish he would stop it.


  • I am generally opposed to Government competing with private industry. However....
    Any insurance company that cannot lower costs or add greater benefits to justify the cost of buying insurance should be put out of business.   They'll be others that will take their place. There will be private insurance for years to come for those that need them and want them!

    It all stems from high wages and salaries. That is still the root cause of problems and capitalism run wild.

  • Yep, I just heard the audio of this 2 hours ago on radio. Once they control health care, they control who lives and who dies. This is the "Stalin" ization of America. He who does not know history is doomed to repeat it!!!!!!!!! Each person that is awake needs to become an activist to educate others, the time is short. It's almost flu season, they can use the regular flu we have every year to scare ppl into their treacherous soft kill eugenics hot shot.
    This bunch of gangsters are worse than the Nazis. The Nazis only wanted to kill certain groups of ppl, these guys want to kill everybody except 500,000 left to be their slaves. ( See the Georgia Guidestones)   ( see DVD online ENDGAME) Heaven help us!!!!

  • Healthcare insurance doesn't provide healthcare.   Medical providers provide healthcare. Healthcare insurance helps pay for medical services provided by medical providers.

    Obama is STILL a lying marxist bent on destroying the US HEALTHCARE SYSTEM by CONTROLLING/limiting payments to ALL the people that make up the US HEALTHCARE SYSTEM the best in the world.

  • There is NO SUCH THING as "capitalism run wild", that's a ridiculous notion.

    You don't have "a little capitalism" or "capitalism lite". You either have it or you don't.

    TrueCritic's comment is a great example of what is wrong with the commentary of today. People who think they know what they're talking about, but are really just repeating what they heard some talking head on TV or politician they admire say.

    People don't earn their knowledge through their own hard work anymore, they just parrot what they hear.

    Anyone who really understood the nature of capitalism and the free markets (vs. socialism/collectivism) would understand that the free markets are exactly what fixes the problems, and that the true problem is politicians -- who are basically just a bunch of lawyers -- creating articifical roadblocks based on politics, not based on the industry they are regulating.

    Ever hear of the housing market, and the problems caused by people like Barkey Frank who insisted that people who couldn't afford mortgages should get them? That stupidity ruined many people's lives, including people not even related to those mortgages.

    If the government has to impose regulations, it's only because the rules are already so messed up by them that there's no other way to do it. The true solution, however, is to get rid of the government controls.

  • For someone like me who can't afford 150 plus bucks a month for health insurance, I welcome the national health care. The people who complain about this are spoiled and don't want to sacrifice their extra time they might have to wait for treatment that is not life threatening.

    I'm neither a republican or democrat. Both sides have issues, but i don't remember the republicans doing a   thing about this. Nobody is ever happy about what the other party does. There's plenty of complaining to go around, and It seems that you just can't please everybody. And when someone comes along and gets off their ass and does something about it, even if it won't please everyone, they still complain.

    I've read about the comparisons made with other countries involving longer waiting periods to see a doctor, but think of it as a sacrifice to your fellow brothers and sisters who can't afford to pay for it out of their pockets.

    I just look at it this way. Someone is trying to finally do something, and whether it works or not in the long run, the people will speak out. It's easy to NOT do anything and complain about the possible solution. If you can't come up with a better idea then don't complain.

    It reminds me of when my boss always ranted about the free market running the gas prices at the pump, and that there was nothing fishy going on behind closed doors. But did anyone notice when the housing crisis came to light, within less than a month, gas prices fell almost $1.50 a gallon if not more. I told my boss that he was wrong about his beliefs about the markets. It was my opinion that the string pullers lowered the prices so the economy would pick up. Does anyone really believe the prices would drop so quickly because the consumption dropped? What a coincidence huh? So, millions of people and businesses all of a sudden stopped using less gas in a span of one month? Give me a break.

    Surely, most of the market is influenced by usage and other factors, but there are folks around the world who have major controls operating in cloak. The IMF has more control on oil prices than you might think.

    I'm not a conspiracy freak, but i do know based on research that we're not told the whole truth about who really controls everything. It really doesn't matter because the powers in charge are systematically trying to widen the gap between the haves and the have nots. Eerily, the pieces of the puzzle came together that much quicker after the housing crisis occurred. I firmly believe it was planned.

    The health care plan might not be the best way to deal with the problem, but nothing is. There will always be flaws in every system. If you want eden, then close your eyes and dream, cause that's about the only place where the perfect world exists.

  • @ Todd
    Have to completely disagree with your opinion on that.   I've known about runaway capitalism for years - NEVER heard anyone talking about it.

    You can't allow high salaries and wages. It creates poverty. Bakeries will price their bread according to those rich people - the poor and middle class won't be able to afford bread. Of course that applies to any and all consumer goods, bread was an example.

    The basic starting point should be the salary of the US President - no employee should make more than he does. Bonuses and pensions should be outlawed - let people create their own pensions. Otherwise live on SS like the rest of the people. Congress would be at the top of the list for that.

    Consumer goods can't go up in price if salaries and wages are kept in check.

  • oops, i meant people stopped using gas....not less gas...sorry. Writing too

  • BTW Barney Frank is a stupid jerk - why he gets voted in, is beyond me.

    By truecritic, at 6:27 PM

  • @truecritic:

    By the very words you're writing, you don't understand capitalism. You're saying that the starting salary should arbitrarily be the salary of the US president. What the heck does that have to do with any industry?!

    Your statement is the exact opposite of capitalism, and your same sentiments are being echoed by other liberal-progressives in this country unfortunately. Those types of non-capitalistic concepts are why we are going down-hill FAST.

    By the way, I think politicians should be paid almost NOTHING. Politicians should be there out of a sense of DUTY, not because it pays well. That creates an environment where they will do anything to hold on to that power and money. And that's exactly what has happened!!

    Plus, your statement about consumer goods is WRONG. The price of consumer goods is based on DEMAND, not on an executive's salary, or anyone else's salary! That is very basic stuff.

    You really want to affect change? Then vote your conscience, not your political party. Stop buying in to moronic chants of "yes we can", or whatever the current sophomoric phrase is. Stop listening to liberal reporters, and start listening to people who know what they are talking about.

    I don't have a political party. I don't join in on "yes we can" or whatever. I make up my own mind.

    Doesn't matter what side of the argument you are on, NO ONE will switch because of your arguments.
    Nor will you switch. So there is no need for further debate from me at this time.

    By truecritic, at 7:06 PM

  • That's not very open-minded of you, and once again, I disagree. I think people who are bound and determined to keep a closed mind will do so.

    However, I can tell you that I have absolutely modified my point of view over the years as I have become more enlightened on these things. I guess that's why i can so easily and quickly identify the weak points in your arguments -- because I might have thought the exact same thing a few years ago.

    I believe that is what thy call "wisdom" -- not just being book-smart on something, but seeing beyond the clever arguments to see truth -- even if it hurts or is unpopular.

  • Last year at this time 29% of the American people were satisfied with their Healthcare (doctors), now it has gone up to almost 50%.   Today, they are finding out they may lose it, they are beginning to understand that the grass may not be so green on the other side. I believe US Americans inherently KNOW the govt. is not good for micromanaging the individual.   By throwing 15-20 million more people into the system in a few years, the whole thing will start becoming very unstable if it gets passed as it sits. Most people who aren't in the HC business have nary an idea what it takes to run a Healthcare system, the VA a govt. entity, is perfect example of a govt. run HC system, it is not good. The bureucracy is beyond absurd.   Every dept. within the VA. is in an entrenched mode of self perservation and sand bags any change.   You ever try and fire a poor performing govt. employee? These people are only interested in their paychecks, vacations, and pensions.   They don't give a $h1T about the people they serve. I have a friend that is attempting to get in the SS admin. bureaucracy and he is doing it for the very reason of job security, he is going thru hoops to get it, but once he gets in, he's been made. No worries anymore.

  • The last administration let the predators run wild. This administration seems to wants to be the predators themselves.

    It would be nice if we could get an administration that would reasonably clamp down on the most offensive predators without being predators themselves.

    By Think, at 9:13 PM

  • Predators are only going to get worse with self serving totalitarian bureaucracies in charge of our very lives.

    By konane, at 9:33 PM

  • @think, Predators of what? Predators of the weak or of the weak minded?

    By jarasan, at 11:33 PM

  • @jarsan
    The predators that brought down the economy with their fraud and manipulation of the system. The predators that Lie, Cheat , and Steal.
    When there is money involved there are predators trying to figure out how to get it.
    Honestly or otherwise.

    I am not talking about the perverts, I am talking about evil money grubbers.

  • I wish George Bush was able to get his proposed legislation through Congress that would have reformed oversight of Freddie and Fannie. If it was passed by the Democrat-controlled Congress, it most likely would have been in time to prevent major parts of the financial collapse from taking place. The Democrats in committee -- like Barney Frank -- were very outspoken against any such reform, because he said that people who couldn't afford mortgages had to continue getting approved for them. Thus the market eventually collapsed and the rest is history. This goes back to 2005.

    Sure, say it's about predators. Just be sure to point out who was actually a predator, and don't just throw out generalizations just for the sake of appearing to spread the blame around to everyone. This current mess is not everyone's fault. Some are much more to blame than others, and those people should be receiving the lion's share of attention.
