It was reported in the web news sources late yesterday that the Congressional members of the Obama Administration and 111th Congress are set to pass the "compromise" health care deform bill, with or without the support of the members of Congress affiliated officially with another political party.
My question is just who is "compromising" on this bill – certainly not the House members set to pass it since it was drafted by the ‘stakeholders" without much unilateral support of the American public who are going to be now inflicted with another backdoor tax, the largest in U.S. history potentially after Social Security, at a time of deep recession and continuing loss of jobs and homes for those individuals that this measure is supposed to assist in making health care affordable for them to purchase.
The self employed and indigent are losing their businesses and jobs, and indigents are already covered under most state health care plans and if not, any "voucher" or subsidies, no matter for how much, would not in any way assist them with purchasing private insurance if they are indigent to begin with.
The Democrats have been behind closed doors continuing to draft and renegotiate the terms of this latest Congressional mandate, in addition to the global Cap & Trade taxation that was drafted earlier this year, also for the major big businesses, health care and Wall Street global financial sectors at the public’s ultimate expense.
There is little regulation on the costs, although provision is made that no one can be denied coverage. Which even at this point leaves the door open to those that really can’t afford it at the "market rate" for those that do have pre-existing conditions of some kind or another, being denied coverage technically due to their inability to afford the costs – voucher, subsidy or no.
And then unable to qualify for any of those state run plans that apparently will be taken over by Uncle Sam, yet the taxes which have been inflicted on the public also in order to pay for those state plans with the matching sums that are already given by Uncle Sam for most of them, – all’s been quiet on whether those sums that have been progressively inflicted by the states in order to qualify for those federal matching sums for the existing state run plans will be returned to the taxpayers throughout the nation once this "mandate" becomes law.
Otherwise, we’ve got dual jeopardy once again really in every state in the nation in now paying a tax at the federal level for health care, and also those other taxes that will be kept in force at the state levels for those measures which have been passed both legislatively and in some states, by initiatives in past years to provide coverage for those that are supposedly the ones in which this legislation was directed – the uninsureable due to pre-existing conditions, and those unable to afford it at current levels.
Or whether those sums will be kept by those states, who just received the most massive budget balancing revenue in that stimulus, yet most of which are STILL crying wolf about their shortfalls.
Cutting the fat from the state budgets apparently hasn’t occurred to them, just as that redlining that was promoted during the last presidential election cycle by both candidates has yet to occur for the "discretionary" expenditures that are outside both the federal and state constitutions, but continue to expand while shifting now more and more usual governmental services costs back onto the public in additional back door taxes, and/or privatizing governmental functions at also increased costs to the the public for those governmental services.
Such as the jails, and more and more, public utility companies and even city/state impound lots, inspection stations, and a host of other public/private partnerships that have "privatized" and increased the costs to Americans for the costs for expenditures which are the actual reason that government even exists to begin with.
It is mind boggling at this point how much and how many layers now of private corporations in the private sector are becoming no more than "state actors" for the government itself due to transferring now costs, functions and authority they have now "legal" right under the federal or state constitutions to so do.
Instead, all that has happened is that government, and the costs of the government have been increased tremendously, using the smoke and mirrors game of "vouchers" or "subsidies" in order to claim that this latest abridgement of our Constitution, without amendment or the consent of the governed, is not a tax.
Then watch the amounts of those vouchers or subsidies dwindle progressively over the next decade, and not near make those monthly premium payments until 95% of the people are being fined huge sums in order then for Washington to use that revenue without accountability.
Those vouchers sound like the vouchers that were given and promised for the digital cable bill. Enough to buy the box, but hey that monthly fee is affordable for that GM worker or "outsourced" tech employee or construction worker that was just laid off, isn’t it?
It appears the only "compromise" which has occurred with this bill has been in "compromising" the public again for the global stock exchange as another "sacrifice" of Americans for the "global good" (isn’t that global communism?) and Wall Street’s gain most of all.
Using now Americans very lives in the process.
