To All Concerned Americans:        From  AmeriPACAmerican Political Action Committee 

The radically liberal administration of Barack Hussein Obama — with the help of his partners-in-crime Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid — is trying to FORCE Americans to accept socialized health care like Canada and Europe…         But we have a chance TODAY to stop them!

Dr. McKalip, the President of the Florida Neurosurgical Society, has summed up the liberal Democrats’ plan very clearly:

The Majority in Congress and the President are promising to change the “status quo” by pushing a government-run-medicine plan (HR 3200). The plan would create rationing through government committees, FORCE all Americans to buy over-priced, politically created health insurance, create an economically unsustainable government-run insurance plan, and impose economy-crushing taxes. In fact, the President would break yet another promise by imposing a 2.5% income tax on each person who refused to buy government improved insurance. Further, after 2013 people would be FORCED to stay in their current plan for LIFE or buy only a government-approved plan since no further enrollment will be allowed in non-approved insurance. Insurance companies would profit endlessly from the free business of the mandate. As medical care demands increased and artificially high profit margins became unacceptably low (for them) they would join the bailout game. In other words, there would be absolutely no change to the status quo — just an expansion of more people into the currently bad system with the added feature of state-sanctioned rationing of medical care.

More than 88 million Americans could LOSE their private, employer-based coverage, according to a new analysis of “The American Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009” released this week by The Heritage Foundation.

While Obama, Pelosi and Reid insist that “if you like your health insurance coverage, you’ll get to keep it,” it’s now very clear: once again, THEY’RE LYING.

If the public plan is implemented as detailed in this bill, people with private insurance will be moved on a public plan, regardless of what they want, because their employers will make that decision because of the financial incentives in the bill.

That’s not all: Yearly premiums for Americans with private coverage could jump as much as $460 per person as a result of more cost-shifting, which would stem from the public plan. Even doctors stand to lose thousands of dollars of income under the legislation. Annual physician net income is estimated to drop by 6.3 percent or $13.4 billion (coming in at an average $18,900 per physician) when compared with current trends.

Throughout the last presidential campaign, Barack Obama repeatedly promised the American people: “If you’re a family that’s making $250,000 a year or less you will see no increase in your taxes. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your personal gains tax, not any of your taxes.”

He lied. Just 15 days into office, President Obama signed a bill expanding the children’s health insurance program that was paid for with a 156% tax hike on tobacco. Since slightly more than half of today’s smokers (53%) earn less than $36,000 per year, Obama’s first effort at expanding government’s role in health care also became his first broken promise.

But that first Medicaid expansion was NOTHING compared to the estimated $1.3 trillion health care plan Congress is considering now. And how is Obama planning to pay for it? Tax hikes — including employer health care mandates, which are really just a TAX on low-income workers, since employers will have to lower pay and cut jobs because of the tax penalties on them.

Is THIS “change we can believe in”??? NO — and that means WE have to take action NOW!


Barack Obama is insisting that “we have to do something NOW” about our “health care crisis” in America, to “stem the rising costs of health care.” But isn’t that what he said about his so-called “stimulus” package — the one that is now costing in the TRILLIONS of dollars, and isn’t helping anything — in fact, is making our economy WORSE?

YourWastedMoneyFoxNews reported that the Congressional Budget Office has projected that the House legislation will cost $1 trillion to $1.5 trillion over 10 years, depending on the plan adopted. The price tag sent shock waves through Washington and beyond — as it SHOULD.

But the CBO can only project out 10 years by law. Other projections based on CBO’s numbers and extending into the future show the bill could EXPLODE the deficit once the benefits are fully implemented. One estimate by the Republican staff of the House Ways and Means Committee estimated the deficit would increase by $759 billion over the first 10 years the benefits are fully in effect, which is in 2015. Another projection of long-range costs done by congressional staff shows deficits in the 2020s of $50 billion to $250 billion per year.

On top of that, while Obama and his supporters claim the legislation will be “deficit neutral,” one senior administration official acknowledged Tuesday that the pledge does not apply to an estimated $245 billion to increase fees for doctors serving Medicare patients over the next decade.

We can’t AFFORD Obama’s plan to socialize health care in America!


Obama and the liberal Democrats in Congress are trying to insist that their plans for the government to take over health care in America isn’t “socialized medicine” — but the fact is, socialized medicine exists to the extent that government controls medical resources and socializes the costs. And that’s exactly what “Obamacare” will do!

Everyone, even leftists, admit that Obama’s plan for “public option” health insurance is simply a giant step towards “single payer” health insurance — which is short-hand for a health care system, like Canada’s, where the government pays all the bills. As far back as 2003, Obama stated very plainly, “I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer, universal health care plan.”

Universal coverage is impossible without coercion; that’s why the leading Democratic proposals would FORCE Americans to obtain health insurance, either on their own or through an employer. And what if you don’t WANT to get the level of coverage that government officials mandate? You pay a fine. And what if you DON’T pay the fine? You go to jail.

There’s absolutely ZERO evidence that anything beyond a basic health plan actually improves health outcomes, yet the individual and employer mandates that Obama and his cronies are trying to pass gradually make coverage less affordable by outlawing the leaner, less expensive plans. And you can be sure of this: if Congress enacts these mandates, we can say goodbye to health savings accounts as we know them.

And on top of all of this… the fact remains that we can’t AFFORD this plan! In the face of an estimated $1.85 trillion federal budget deficit for FY2009 and projected trillion dollar annual deficits for the foreseeable future, how can anyone in Congress vote for this health care plan, which will cost at least $1 trillion over the next ten years? Plus, Congress is facing at least $53 trillion of unfunded liabilities due to its passage of the previous entitlement programs, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the recent addition of prescription drug coverage for Medicare. How can anyone in Congress vote for a new entitlement program for health care when Congress has not even begun to face up to this unfunded liabilities problem?

Well, they’re trying to — but WE can stop them, with YOUR help!

We CANNOT let the radical liberals in Congress — and the White House — force this plan for socialized health care on the American people! That’s why we’ve set up our website to enable you to send a strong message to every single member of Congress, in both Houses, OPPOSING this outrageous plan.

For about what it would cost you in time and telephone charges, you can send Blast Faxes to Democrats, Republicans, Independents — EVERYONE in the U.S. House AND the U.S. Senate, DEMANDING that they REJECT this socialized health care plan NOW!

Can it work? Can we stop Congress from forcing this down our throats, even though the GOP is in the minority?

BlueDogDemsYES — thanks to “blue dog Democrats,” who are more conservative than their “leaders” like Pelosi and Reid. Already, they’ve been holding up the bill in committee; now, they’re saying that Pelosi might not have the votes she needs in the House! And on the Senate side, thanks to the overwhelming opposition of the American people to this bill, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), chair of the Senate Finance Committee, was overheard jokingly telling House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, “let me tell you, praying might be helpful here.”

We CAN do this! In 1993, First Lady Hillary Clinton tried to force a less radical form of socialized health care down our throats, thinking that they could do it since the Democrats controlled Congress AND the White House.

What was the result? 1994, and the Republican Revolution. The liberal Democrats are “shooting themselves in the foot” again by trying to pass even more radical socialized health care this time — but we CAN stop them!


Please, take action right away to STOP this bill dead in its tracks!

P.S. America needs health care reform. But new government programs, mandates, and price controls would deny patients control over their most important and personal medical decisions — and it’s “reform” that we cannot afford.

THIS ATTEMPT BY LIBERALS IS OUTRAGEOUS — and it MUST be stopped! Send your faxes right away to make sure these Senators get a STRONG message, to REJECT the socialized plan of “Obamacare” NOW — Thank you!
