Obamacare Advances Political Goals, not Health

By    |   Monday, 29 March 2010 09:31 AM

Less than two weeks ago, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi cooed, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."

Yes, she said that! Right out loud, on national TV. In two sentences, she indicated that she herself didn’t know all that the 2,700-page healthcare bill contained or mandated — but that she was determined to cram this atrocity down the throats of Americans, before they (or she) learned what it would contain or cost them.

There’s a kind of wild ferocity in her manner. Oh, it’s softly modulated, but absolutely determined, and nothing was going to deter her quest to deliver this prize for President Obama.

Sounding for all the world like an earnest Avon lady selling you her products, she told everyone in the audience and the members of the House that this bill not only was patriotic, historic, and needed but also would decrease the deficit! And you could have sworn she actually believed it.

She wanted all of us to believe that, having added almost $3 trillion to our national debt, with no one to pay it but us beaten-down taxpayers, that somehow this monstrosity was going to magically reduce itself! That the American public should rejoice with her that virtually all 300 million of us were going to have fabulous healthcare, courtesy of the government, including 14 or 15 million illegal aliens and several million others who actually don’t want it. And that her Congress could take $500 billion out of Medicaid while it tried to serve the 30 million more baby boomers who are entitled to it — and that this scheme would save more than a trillion dollars over 10 years.

Well, this gigantic, preposterous bill has been railroaded through a Democrat Congress and signed into law by an inexperienced president determined to “save his presidency,” no matter what.

Is it not painfully obvious that America is being swindled in a classic Bernie Madoff-type scheme? The jailed financier kept promising all his clients fabulous returns, taking their money, parceling out some to a favored few, keeping and spending most of it on himself and his whims, assuming there would always be more suckers, more “believers” who were convinced he was a financial genius and couldn’t fail.

For years, he deceived countless intelligent, successful people who poured billions into his scheme, because they wanted to believe there was a guy like him who could do the otherwise impossible. And so he kept parlaying their willful belief into greater wealth — for himself.

Millions of fellow citizens are buying into the Obamacare fantasy, exulting with the president that he’s achieved a historic victory, that a new Camelot is about to emerge from technical and real bankruptcy, crazy undoable programs somehow morphing into a healthy, socialist, “progressive” country, in which all needs are supplied by a benevolent Big Brother government and everybody has a “right” for all their dreams to come true.

They want to believe it, so all practical evidence and rational thought is forsaken.

“Obamacare” was aptly named; it was never about healthcare for all Americans — it was a preposterous, unaffordable plan to care for the Obama presidency and his imagined place in history. In the final days before the corrupt, undemocratic, and unconstitutional vote process, he was reported to have persuaded all Democrat representatives that, if the bill wasn’t passed, his presidency was doomed. And with it, their careers in politics as well.

Their combined self-interest carried the day, and the Madoff-style scheme lived another day, making all of America its victim.

The Bible foretold this very thing, for this very time.

The Apostle Paul wrote to his young disciple Timothy, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron.” (1 Timothy 4:1-2)

Later, in a second letter, Paul warned, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers: And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

Granted, Paul was talking primarily about spiritual truth. But, contrary to what atheists and humanists, and nonbelievers affirm, our freedoms and rights are endowed by God and none other. When we willfully abandon spiritual truth, we also lose the foundation of liberty.

You can’t change gravity. And you cannot go on spending trillions of dollars you don’t have, and just expect everything to turn out all right. You can’t solve human problems with worthless pieces of printed money, backed by nothing but wishes and impossible promises.

Thomas Jefferson warned, “Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to the wretchedness which inevitably awaits them, if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them.”

Citizens, this battle has been forced upon us. Let’s get it on.
