Betsy McCaughey Identifies the beginning of Amerikan Socialism

to the People’s Republic of Americka.  The United States of America is
about to be heaped up on the scrap heap of wrongly named countries like
the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea.  A republic is a form of
government where representatives debate and present government issues
for the people they represent.  According to our leaders, Obama in
particular, we are not allowed to debate, review, oversee, or even
think about this legislation, the largest spending package in human
history!  Trust us they say, Pelosi raises her hand on CNN stating
there is no pork, Obama states there is no pork, if they say it long
enough then it must be true.  Here in China the people only know what
the government is doing after it is done, America seems to be doing the
same thing now, pass it now and find out what is in there later.  The
doom and gloom has made it too urgent to review, and it has to be
passed NOW!  We no long have open debate, exchange of ideas, or
moderation of extreme fringe philosophies from being forced on us
moderates or nonbelievers.  This
stimulus bill
has much more then pork, even if they changed the name of pork and ear
marks and placed them in the bill in a way that does not fit the
definition of ear marks. Two wrongs don’t make a right, so stop saying
that all the conservative ear marks over the past 8 years justifies
this round, and while we are there, didn’t Pelosi and the Dems have
control of Congress for the past 4 years, making all the pork, waste,
and stupidity passed by Congress their faults, thought so.  Glad I am
in China and getting orientated in how to live in a socialists and
non-republic country, all hail dear leader Obama. 

Today’s Bloomberg has an opinion column by Betsy McCaughey
that outlines the takeover of our healthcare system by the government. 
This shifts the bad care we have today from HMO’s to Government.  Now
some government body will dictate what treatment you get and when you
get it.  Get ready to stand in line for that operation. Ask people in
Canada and Briton how well this works out for them.  Oh, and how does
socializing healthcare stimulate the economy, please enlighten me. 
Excerpts below.

Hospitals and doctors that are not “meaningful users” of
the new system will face penalties.  “Meaningful user” isn’t
defined in the bill. That will be left to the HHS secretary, who
will be empowered to impose “more stringent measures of
meaningful use over time” (511, 518, 540-541)

What penalties will deter your doctor from going beyond the
electronically delivered protocols when your condition is
atypical or you need an experimental treatment? The vagueness is
intentional. In his book, Daschle proposed an appointed body
with vast powers to make the “tough” decisions elected
politicians won’t make.

The stimulus bill does that, and calls it the Federal
Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research
(190-192). The goal, Daschle’s book explained, is to slow the
development and use of new medications and technologies because
they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for being more
willing to accept “hopeless diagnoses” and “forgo
experimental treatments,” and he chastises Americans for
expecting too much from the health-care system.

The stimulus bill will affect every part of health care,
from medical and nursing education, to how patients are treated
and how much hospitals get paid. The bill allocates more funding
for this bureaucracy than for the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air
Force combined (90-92, 174-177, 181).

Hiding health legislation in a stimulus bill
is intentional. Daschle supported the Clinton administration’s
health-care overhaul in 1994, and attributed its failure to
debate and delay. A year ago, Daschle wrote that the next
president should act quickly before critics mount an opposition.
“If that means attaching a health-care plan to the federal
budget, so be it,” he said. “The issue is too important to be
stalled by Senate protocol.”

Again, I am not joking.  This is gravely serious.  Add this to the
now $3 trillion total cost of the next wave of TARP, Stimulus bill, and new
spending initiatives and how is this going to be paid for?  Do you think
taxes can cover this?  We are all getting a tax cut according to the NICP,
Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.  So what is left, corporate taxes, windfall taxes,
well in this economy you can count that out with double digit decline. 
The $3 trillion total spending will have to come from somewhere, $325 billion
is paid for already, $850+ via taxes (stimulus bill), $1 trillion for freeing
up credit markets by buying toxic paper that will have to be raised by selling
American bonds to other countries, sovereign wealth funds, and private
investors.  Well, American investors have lost 50~70% of their worth in
the current market downturn, and will be taxed more for it. 
China, Japan,
(number 2, 3, 4 economies in the world) and the EU have stated they can only
purchase a few bonds and only of the stimulus legislation has NO protection
measures in it, which in its current form it does not.  So if only we can
get them to buy this, which they don’t want to, that still leaves $1 trillion
for the spending our tax evading Treasury Secretary just outlined and caused
the markets to sink 381 points in an hour!  We will print it. 
Welcome to double digit inflation, meaning your $1 today will have about 0.90
or less depending on the inflation rate next year.  Look at
Mexico and Zimbabwe for insight on
inflation.  Just printing money to flood the market will overheat the
economy to the point of creating inflation so bad it will make
Japan‘s lost decade look like road bump compared
to the
Grand Canyon.
