The vast majority of the American people do not want either a public option/government health insurer or a single payer/government monopoly of health care–socialized medicine.

President Obama and the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party want the public option because they believe that it would eliminate over time insurance companies and lead eventually to a single payer government monopoly of health care–socialized medicine.

If a health care bill is passed that includes the public option, the Democratic Party can expect to lose control of the House of Representatives and lose a few Senate seats in 2010.

If the health care, cap and trade energy tax, and comprehensive immigration reform bills are all passed, the Democratic Party can expect to lose control of the House, Senate and White House in 2012.

So what does President Obama do?

Barack Obama is first and foremost a front man, he will do what his campaign contributors and suporters expect him to do–the unions and socialists want the public option to eventually get to a single payer system:

AFL-CIO Pushed Public Option

SEIU’s Anna Burger On MSNBC: Public Option, Not Co-Ops, Necessary To Hold Down Health Costs

President Obama will push for the public option and as a result the Democrats will lose between 25 to 40 seats in the next election and another 25 to 40 seats in 2012.

What happened to the Republican Party in 2006 and 2008 will happen to the Democratic Party in 2010 and 2012.

Call it hubris or the arrogance of power, I call American people payback.

The time is ripe for the formation of a third political party, call it the American Citizens Alliance Party,  that will actually listen to and reflect the wishes of the majority of the American people .

The Amercian people want the FairTax, stopping and reversing illegal immigration, affordable, fair, portable, individual health insurance, energy independence with nuclear electrical power, balanced budgets, and yes–full employment by creating wealth not destroying or redistributing to a political supporters such as union, trial lawyers, and Wall Street commercial and investment banks.

Time to take the red, white and blue pill and not the the poison pill–compulsory health insurance with a public option that leads to a government monopoly of health care–socialized medicine.

The “Public Option” Myth

Letter from a Whole Foods worker Updated

By Michelle Malkin  

“…You may have heard about the nutroots boycott of Whole Foods, whose CEO John Mackey is an outspoken critic of Obamacare and advocates market-based alternatives.

Their food is pricey, but if you have a chance/opportunity to help counter the boycott, go out and buy a few Whole Foods items. I think it’s worth it.

Reader Tara, a Whole Foods employee, e-mailed me last night:

Hey Michelle, just got your book, and can’t put it down! But anyways, I’ve attached the lovely flyer that picketers from UFCW were hanging out at my Whole Food Market today. Thought you’d get a kick out of it!! I work for Whole Foods, and I am a long time loyal employee. I love our company, and our CEO! John Mackey stands for what he cares about and believes in! This company offers awesome benefits and puts us team members first! I had to email everyone this flyer and get the word about because this is ridiculous. Any help getting the work out that this is ridiculous would be great! I’m sure you probably know all about his craziness, so any help would be great! Thank you!

The flyer is quite a piece of work. Check out how they make Mackey look like a convicted criminal:

Headed to my local Whole Foods later today. Their 365 whole wheat naan is the best.

Update: From reader John… …”

Rasmussen Report:

Without Public Option, Enthusiasm for Health Care Reform, Especially Among Democrats, Collapses

“…These results suggest that the president has difficult choices ahead. A solid majority of unaffiliated voters are opposed to passing health care reform legislation with or without the public option. However, failure to pass a plan of any kind could create additional difficulties for the president, and a plan without the public option does not have the enthusiastic support of his base. This helps explain why, according to the New York Times, senior Democrats are considering going it alone on the reform plan without trying to get any Republican support for it.

Other recent Rasmussen Reports polling highlights the underlying political challenges. Thirty-two percent (32%) of voters favor a single-payer health care system. These voters make up a heavy majority of those who favor passage of health care reform. They view the current legislation as a baby step along the way to a single-payer system. Most Americans oppose a single-payer system and are seeking reassurance that the current plan will not head in that direction.

Overall, when it comes to health care decisions, 51% fear the government more than private insurance companies while 41% hold the opposite view.

Most Americans support the concept of reform, but cost control is seen as the most important aspect of reform. Also, voters simply don’t believe the legislation will deliver the benefits that its advocates claim. Few believe it will increase patient choice or make health care affordable. In fact, most voters believe the passage of the current health care reform effort will lead to higher costs and lower quality of care. …”

Peter Singer

“…Peter Albert David Singer (born July 6, 1946) is an Australian philosopher. He is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and laureate professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (CAPPE), University of Melbourne. He specializes in applied ethics, approaching ethical issues from a secular preference utilitarian perspective.

He has served, on two occasions, as chair of philosophy at Monash University, where he founded its Centre for Human Bioethics. In 1996, he ran unsuccessfully as a Green candidate for the Australian Senate. In 2004, he was recognized as the Australian Humanist of the Year by the Council of Australian Humanist Societies.

Outside academic circles, Singer is best known for his book Animal Liberation, widely regarded as the touchstone of the animal liberation movement. Not all members of the animal liberation movement share this view, and Singer himself has said the media overstates his status. His views on that and other issues in bioethics have attracted attention and a degree of controversy. …”

Obama: First We Kill The Babies, Then We Kill The Elderly, Then We Kill The Veterans–Your Life, Your Choices–Your Time Is Up!

“…Almost a third of all unborn babies in America have their lives terminated each year with the consent of their mothers. Fifty million since Roe v. Wade have never seen the light of day. For many, the quality of life now supersedes in value the sanctity of life. That is who we are.

Between 2012 and 2030, 74 million baby boomers will retire, cease to be the major contributors to Medicare and become the major drain on Medicare. How long will an overtaxed labor force in a de-Christianized America be wiling to pay the bill to keep all those aging boomers alive?

Rationed care is coming, and the death panels will not be far behind.”

The Death Party just lost the veteran vote.

Expect President Obama’s popularity to fall below 40% in September, when the unemployment rate hits 10%. 

 

The Death Book for Veterans

Ex-soldiers don’t need to be told they’re a burden to society.

By JIM TOWEY

“…If President Obama wants to better understand why America’s discomfort with end-of-life discussions threatens to derail his health-care reform, he might begin with his own Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). He will quickly discover how government bureaucrats are greasing the slippery slope that can start with cost containment but quickly become a systematic denial of care.

Last year, bureaucrats at the VA’s National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, “Your Life, Your Choices.” It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA’s preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated “Your Life, Your Choices.”

Who is the primary author of this workbook? Dr. Robert Pearlman, chief of ethics evaluation for the center, a man who in 1996 advocated for physician-assisted suicide in Vacco v. Quill before the U.S. Supreme Court and is known for his support of health-care rationing.

“Your Life, Your Choices” presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political “push poll.” For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be “not worth living.” …”

VA’s Denial-of-Care-Oriented ‘Your Life, Your Choices,’ Quashed Under Bush, Revived Under Obama

By Tom Blumer

“…If you were a reporter trying to gauge the credibility of Obama administration protests that it is really serious when it says that it will honor patient, doctor, and family treatment wishes in serious illness situations if the government takes an exponentially greater role in health care, you might look into how areas of health care already controlled by the government are dealing with these sensitive matters.

Apparently either no journalist has cared to look, or if anyone has looked, they haven’t found anything they believe is worth reporting.

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Jim Towey, a former director of the Bush White House’s Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and founder of the nonprofit Aging with Dignity, found a troubling, newsworthy, death-encouraging decision that has already been made during Barack Obama’s short term in office. …”

The Death Book for Veterans

“…One can only imagine a soldier surviving the war in Iraq and returning without all of his limbs only to encounter a veteran’s health-care system that seems intent on his surrender.

I was not surprised to learn that the VA panel of experts that sought to update “Your Life, Your Choices” between 2007-2008 did not include any representatives of faith groups or disability rights advocates. And as you might guess, only one organization was listed in the new version as a resource on advance directives: the Hemlock Society (now euphemistically known as “Compassion and Choices”).

This hurry-up-and-die message is clear and unconscionable. Worse, a July 2009 VA directive instructs its primary care physicians to raise advance care planning with all VA patients and to refer them to “Your Life, Your Choices.” Not just those of advanced age and debilitated condition—all patients. America’s 24 million veterans deserve better.”

Death panels? What death panels? Oh, those death panels

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 9, 2009 11:36 AM

Sarah Palin’s warning about the effects of Obamacare on the elderly and infirm have been met with derision and ridicule. William Jacobson has a good round-up.

Meanwhile, the effects of socialized medicine in Britain — engineered by government-run cost-cutting panels on which Obamacare would be modeled — continue to wreak havoc on the elderly and infirm:

*Elderly left at risk by NHS bidding wars to find cheapest care with reverse auctions

*Patients forced to live in agony after NHS refuses to pay for painkilling injections

*Elderly suffer in care shambles

*Twisted priorities that let the elderly suffer

*NHS neglects elderly depression.

*NHS failure on Down’s screening kills healthy babies

*‘I said to the nurse, please feed her:’ Pauline Pringle’s mother went into hospital for a hip operation and came out close to starvation. And as Blake Morrison reports, hers is not an isolated case …”

Former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey leads ‘death panel’ charge writing up talking points

BY David Saltonstall 

“…In reality, the bill section simply aims to provide Medicare coverage for once-every-five-year conversations with doctors over what life-prolonging measures, if any, a patient wants taken in the event of a terminal illness or injury. It’s an idea first championed by a conservative Republican senator, Johnny Isakson of Georgia.

But McCaughey took that section and ran with it, providing backup for Palin and right-wing media pot-stirrers to sound the “death panel” alarm.

McCaughey got the ball rolling on ex-Sen. Fred Thompson‘s radio show on July 16, when she called the bill “a vicious assault on elderly people” that will “cut your life short.”

She then wrote a column July 24 that claimed Obama advisers don’t want to “give much care to a grandmother with Parkinson’s or a child with cerebral palsy.”

Days later, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recited much of the article on the House floor.

Palin then unleashed her “death panel” comment, basing it on Bachmann’s floor speech. And the firestorm raged.

The father of a wheelchair-bound son with cerebral palsy recently shouted down 83-year-old Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) at a town hall meeting. He then brandished McCaughey’s article on Fox News to explain his anger.

“Every American should pull this up on their computer,” Mike Sola said on Fox – and many apparently did.

Today, McCaughey rejects any notion that she employed scare tactics to fight Obama’s plan. …”
