If some reports are to be believed, the Democrats will pass the Senate health care bill with some reconciliation changes later today. Thus, it is worthwhile to take a comprehensive look at the freedoms we will lose.
Of course, the bill is supposed to provide us with security. But it will result in skyrocketing insurance costs and physicians leaving the field in droves, making it harder to afford and find medical care. We may be about to live Benjamin Franklin’s adage, “People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.”
The top 20 ways Obamacare is going to ruin our economy and take our freedoms are spelled out in this article. Instead of posting them all at once, I’ll do it one at a time so those who think this abomination is good for America can try their feeble hands at defending it (that is if they can even understand it). I’m also posting them one at a time so you don’t get lulled into blissful ignorance. Most people won’t sit down and take the time to read twenty ways they are losing their freedom (believe that?) never mind a 1500 page bill. Here is the first:
1. You are young and don’t want health insurance? You are starting up a small business and need to minimize expenses, and one way to do that is to forgo health insurance? Tough. You have to pay $750 annually for the “privilege.” (Section 1501)
We all know how hard it is to start a small business. Most small businesses fail in the first five years despite the Herculean effort put out by their owners. The primary cause is usually cash flow. Very often the owners leverage everything they own to pursue their dream. Second mortgages, selling the car, taking out loans, maxing out credit cards, borrowing from family members you name it. For all that effort they get long days and nights behind the counter working to make the business succeed.
The American entrepreneur doesn’t ask much. They just want the government and all its bureaucrats, red tape, high fees, TAXES and insane mandates to get out-of-the-way so they can succeed. Now Obamacare is going to throw yet ANOTHER roadblock in their way. Remember BIG businesses start out as SMALL businesses. As they grow the HIRE more people. This EXPANDS the economy and provides REVENUE to the government. It’s no wonder this is lost on White House. These amateurs have never CREATED a job, met a payroll or turned a profit. They all need to go.
