The major media outlets have now been reporting that the momentum for Obama’s Healthcare Reform has been decreasing. This is true. But, if you do not ask the question why, then it is a very misleading truth.
The media has been showing town halls from across the United States. These town halls do not reflect the thinking points of the American people, but rather the talking points of the republican operatives. These operatives have bussed volunteers into the town hall meetings with a packet containing the talking points, including tips on how to disrupt a meeting and prevent the speaker from even getting started. These points are all lies: Obama will create “death panels,” the government is going make decisions about our health care, you will be bogged down in government paperwork, etc. This was designed to change the thinking of the American people to withdraw any support they might have had for President Obama’s healthcare reform. But this new thinking was based on the LIES they see and hear on their T.V.!
We cannot allow the lies of the republican party to mislead the American public into believing that Obama’s health care plan would “kill” seniors, or come between you and your doctor. How absurd!
The common shout out at these town hall meetings “Keep the government out of my Medicare!” demonstrates how little the health care opponents actually know. Just in case, I will state here that Medicare is a public option for seniors. They get excellent care! Seniors get the care they need to continue living, even if their quality of life has deteriorated. I have seen it in my own family. Care was never, ever denied to our grandmother even though she had no quality of life. Medicare is not a profit driven company. It is designed to take care of our citizens who have retired and have no private health insurance. And, by the way, there is no paperwork!
Do you know who is killing people? Do you know who comes between you and your doctor? The private health care companies!! Currently, THEY decide, NOT YOUR DOCTOR, what care you should have, what care is critical or life threatening. The CEO’s of private national health care companies, making billions of dollars, keep their profits high by withholding health care wherever possible. The more claims they deny, the more money in the pockets of these billionaires. Health Care is a profit driven business.
Now, who do you trust? The private companies? Remember, their only concern is profit! Or the United States government, who is taking criminal action against those companies for denying coverage that are causing people to die or loose everything.
These lies have started with Betsy McCoy, who is a part of the Hudson Institute. They are the source of ResistNet.com. These are the people organizing and bussing people to the town halls. This website posts death threats to President Obama and compares Obama to Hitler. We cannot allow these fringe groups to control the national dialog on health care.
