    Health Care in a nutshell...

    An interesting comparison.

    The “Health-Care” Bill is reputed to have been some thousands of pages long. Too long for those who voted for it, to have even read it let alone understood what it means. DIDN’T CARE, the oldest lawyers’ trick to show the people that LAW — those who voted for this travesty are pledged to Uphold and Defend — is no more than THE FIST OF THE POWERFUL. Shades of the 18th century and earlier.

    I’ve just reviewed the premier documents of the founding of this USA which has become the beacon and the model for people in the world who want divorce from obeisance to arbitrary powers and “elites”. Who want and are willing to take their chances to be responsible for their destinies, private and public.

    That nation, one of the marvels of the modern age, now embroiled in a battle for survival, their enemy their own government agents and agencies in ALL the administrative offices of that government: Legislative, Judiciary, and Executive.

    and these documents / the winners ARE :

    1. The Declaration of Independence,
    2 The Articles of Confedeation
    3. The Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.

    They are made up in 29 pages. Published in the National Language of the New Nation, American English, so understandable in words and meaning to any literate person who reads them.

    • The fact is that my Representative in Congress is one of those moderate Democrats and he is always looking at all the details of each bill and insisting that they make certain changes before he would be willing to vote for it. Most of the time as in the health care legislation, they have made the changes and then he voted for it. There were times when they wouldn't make the changes he wanted and so he did not vote for that bill.
      I also want to add that I just heard that I know a young lady who recently graduated from college and was trying to find a job. She was recently contacted by a health insurance company after they saw her resume online. She was interviewed etc. and she got the job. It is strange because I kept hearing that this health care bill was going to put the health insurance companies out of business but it looks like they are adding employees.

    • ...“That nation, one of the marvels of the modern age, now embroiled in a battle for survival, their enemy their own government agents and agencies in ALL the administrative offices of that government: Legislative, Judiciary, and Executive.”

      So, you’re suggesting to the citizens of this great country that our entire government – all three branches – are the enemy of the people? Wow, even Joe McCarthy only initially accused 205 employees in the State Dept. of being Communists! Hey, in the alternative government that you have in mind – whatever that might be – will the citizens be allowed to accuse the government of being their enemy? Man, if the Hollywood Blacklist, rather than telling McCarthy to simply buzz off, had said what you said above, McCarthy would have had them executed. Of course he was later proven to be a paranoid, nut-ball.

      Wait…is that why you headed your post “Health Care in a nutshell?” ALL of your posts are in a nutshell.

      “(these documents are)… so understandable in words and meaning to any literate person who reads them.”

      Agreed. It’s a shame you couldn’t find such a person to do that for you.

      • Democrat Nancy Pelosi: “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.” We still don’t know. And Democrat Alcee Hastings on Obamacare: “There are no rules, we make ‘em up as we go along.” And now the Democratic marching orders are to stop campaigning on Obamacare, and their new mantra is “we promise we will improve it.” Is this after they “magically pass” a bill no one has read? Is this after they make it up as they go along? Is this more Democratic elitists telling the simpletons that elected them that they know better? November cannot get here soon enough.

        “A Gangster Government.” Its even worse than that, they call themselves Democrats or Progressives but they are really neo-communists, the New Communists of the United States. Real Democrats like Harry Truman, Kennedy or Zell Miller believed in the country, these Obama gangsters believe in ruining it forever for an idiology, Secretary Sebelius is the perfect example of the Communist apparatchik, the cold bureaucrat that can sentence you, your parents or children to death with the turn of a regulation. What went on in the death camps of communism is alive and well, it just takes ignorance to let it flourish again.
