Obamacare is for Thee — But Not For Me

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Tuesday, March 9, 2010, 2: 36 PM

One of the worst things about Obamacare is that while you and I will be stuck with it, all Federal and State employees, including all of Congress, will be exempt from it. If it so good for us, why isn’t it good for them?

For one simply reason. Federal and State employees, including Congress and the executive branch, currently enjoy the finest health insurance in the country, courtesy of you and me. They don’t want to give it up. We might not want to give up whatever it is that we have, either. Even if what we have isn’t the limousine health care plan they have, we still might like to keep it. Too Bad. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are determined.

This article at Pajamas Media is spot on: ObamaCare Means a Two-Tier System:

This is the key test for the Medi-Grab bill. Any member of Congress who votes against it reveals his or her true stand on America’s founding principles. Anyone who votes for it shows that he or she actually gets it. There are many terrifying parts of this Medi-Grab bill, but this is the simplest litmus test.

It’s so simple that everyone in the country can understand it. It’s do-or-die in terms of the integrity and honesty of the takeover of one-sixth of the economy that Obama is so determined to drive through Congress.

and,

Socialist regimes reveal their true nature by the special treatment they give to their permanent ruling class; they deny such treatment for ordinary schlubs like you and me. The worst corruption in socialist regimes flows from that simple two-caste system. In Europe, the ruling class hardly bothers with elections any more. The same people just turn over in their lifelong careers, or they just stay in the tenured bureaucracy.

That’s Obama’s future for us and our children. It has to be stopped. It can be stopped.

At this point Pelosi does not have the votes to pass it. If she did the vote would already have been held. The minute she has the votes the vote will be held, even if it’s 3:00 A.M. If you hear the vote has been scheduled or if is being held, you won’t need to wait for the count. You will know then and there that our goose has been cooked.

But Steny Hoyer said today they are going to meet Obama’s deadline of March 18. That means they don’t have the votes today, and don’t expect to have them in the next 9 days. Call, write and telephone your Congressperson if you live in a Democrat district. Tell them you will give as much money as you can to their opponent in the next election if they vote for this nightmare.

    Even if Obamacare passes, and we have a two-tier system, I expect that the care of the upper tier will become sub-standard. Our best and brightest will no longer be attracted to the practice of medicine.
