My son Jay and I have collaborated on developing a new screenplay and he wanted to get a handle on the healthcare issue…of course the current administration is the focal point of our screenplay. However, we’re not yet sure if it should be a comedy or a tragedy…I guess it all depends on ones point of view.


The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill

BY Robert Amoroso


The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill is a monstrous (over 1,100 pages) piece of legislation that in effect attempts to eventually take over the private healthcare industry. The excuse for the creation of this massive piece of legislation is to insure the roughly 47-million people that are currently uninsured. Those numbers however include 15-20-million illegal aliens and 10-million young people that can afford to buy insurance, if they want to, but choose not to.


From my perspective this Healthcare Reform Bill in truth is an attempt by this administration to take over 1/6th of the economy and put healthcare under government control. Obama believes in big government entitlements and in the redistribution of wealth…everything that he's done as president so far, suggests to me that Obama wants to change the core principles of America.


The government bailouts and the take over of the banking and auto industries, is an example of this...private and essential industries are now under the control of the government, and the trillions of dollars that he’s taken out of our economy to bailout these industries will eventually be paid for by the tax payer (YOU & ME) for generations and generations to come.


Astoundingly we’re borrowing trillions of dollars from former enemies and countries that have enslaved their own people and we’re no longer in control of  our own financial destiny…our so called leaders have in effect sold America to the highest bidder.


This Healthcare Reform Bill, if passed by Congress will add another two trillion dollars to our national debt, driving us closer to bankruptcy, and if this bill is passed as authored by this administration, the likelihood is our healthcare will be similar to that of Canada or the UK and will eventually drive the private health industry out of business.


The fear is that government bureaucrats will come between you and your doctor when it comes to medical decisions not your physician and medical procedures such as hip replacements or major surgeries may be rationed or worse yet, not available to you (because of age), again government bureaucrats may decide because of your age, that you may not qualify for that triple bypass surgery or expensive drugs that may prolong your life.


Worse yet almost every government run program and entitlement currently in existence (Medicare, Social Security and the Post Office) have been mismanaged, incredibly Obama’s “cash for clunkers” program is now coming under fire, because the government hasn’t paid its dealerships as promised and these programs are nowhere near the size or scope of a government run healthcare system…God help us!


Obviously we have the best healthcare in the world, and I’ve never heard of Americans rushing to Canada or the UK to get medical treatment, however tens of thousands of Canadians and Brits come to the US every year to get emergency medical treatment in the US...because they can’t get timely medical treatment in their country…that is what we have to look forward to if ObamaCare become a reality!!


What is amazing to me, is that this administration is willing to scrap one of the best healthcare systems in the world…irregardless of the fact that the majority of Americans consider their healthcare to be good or excellent.


Obviously, we need to bring the costs of healthcare down. Tort reform is an excellent beginning; it would set standards against frivolous lawsuits against doctors and hospitals, we should also of course open up the insurance market and allow insurance companies to compete across the country, allowing us to buy insurance coverage anywhere we want, and not forced to buy it within our home state. These are simple and quick cures, and yet this administration hasn’t once attempted to confront those two issues.


Then why the radical overhaul in our healthcare system?  As I’ve stated President Obama believes in the redistribution of wealth…taking from the most productive within our society and redistributing it among those that have less…healthcare is simply another way of achieving his goal…once the government controls your healthcare, (and an additional 1/6 of the economy) they control you…simply ask any senior on Medicare.


As a former community organizer, Obama believes in community, and not the individual. His radical polices suggests to me, that he believes that power derives from the government and not in the individual.


Our founding fathers warned against an all powerful centralized government, and perhaps envisioned a day that a powerful and mismanaged federal government on the edge of bankruptcy with a blotted budget and trillions of dollars in debt, would need to eventually control its citizens against an impending revolt.

You hit the nail squarly on the head, Robert.
This guy below, "OneLight*.Authors, etc., etc. is a died in the wool, head in the sand liberal so nothing anyone will say will penetrate his, "Be a Democrat first, and American second mentality.

Robert this is a thoughtful and rational write. Opinions cannot replace the facts. The speed with which they want to ram this huge bill through should cause any rational thinker to question the motives of this administration.

Per your comment below, I and many others I know have taken the time to read the current bill and find it ludicrous that anyone (including elected congressmen) could promote such a behemouth travesty. The devil is in the details. Unfortunately, many hard-line Party-driven types get their talking points from fringe websites and have no clue as to the facts. Included in that group are those who adhere to Marxist and Leninist theologies and want to reshape our country into a socialist state. It is nearly impossible to have a rational discussion with either.

OneLight, or is it Joseph?

Anyway, I suggest you take a little time and actually attempt to read this legislation, before you speak of facts. If you can decipher the legalize and wade through the conflicting paragraphs (I’ve tried), perhaps then we can discuss those facts in a rational and constructive way.

The rub with this legislation is that it leaves a wide gap between what is actually written and what is implied, and I believe it is done with intent…facts are facts my friend just take a look around you.

Don’t allow foolish ideology to get in the way of those facts…simply be honest with yourself (not with me), and ask yourself a simple question…”if this were George Bush would you still be a disciple of this healthcare reform legislation”?

Excellent article, Robert. However, I think you have over rated the final out come of Obamacare. As I see it, we are all going to get a free once a year visit to a witch doctor of your choice, plus all of the free aspirin we need. For the people living in rural areas... They will be mailed a rattle with an instruction booklet. You're right...It's that bad!!! God help us.
