October Edition: There's No Place for Obamacare in America

There's No Place for Obamacare in America

The "Affordable Health Care Act" could not be more poorly named. In fact, the original name of it almost elicits a laugh of sarcasm. Affordable? No way! It should be renamed the "Deplorable Health Care Attack" instead. The restructuring of healthcare continues to be a catastrophic train wreck for our society.
When Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke for more than twenty-one hours in an attempt to draw attention to the impending failure of "Obamacare", the secular media scoffed. But now they, too, have begun to distance themselves from this epic healthcare failure.
Recently, Dr. Ben Carson shared insight about the meaning of Obamacare for America. He said, "'Obamacare' is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. In a way, it is slavery...because it is making all of us subservient to the government... It was never about health care - it was all about control. Only when someone falls deathly sick, and has to struggle to survive do they understand the critical importance of health. It is the most valuable thing that you have - everything else pales in insignificance compared to your health...and that's the reason that your health should be controlled by you and not by the government."
At a rally in 2009, Barack Obama famously said, "Let me be exactly clear about what health care reform means to you. First of all, if you've got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan.  Nobody is talking about taking that away from you." 
Nothing could be further from the truth: The U.S. individual health insurance market currently totals about 19 million people. Due to the fact that the Obama administration's regulations on grandfathering existing plans are so stringent, about 16 million people are losing their current insurance!

These 16 million people are currently receiving letters from their insurance carriers informing them that they are losing their current coverage. They must re-enroll in order to avoid a break in coverage and comply with the new health law's benefit mandates. Most of the 16 million will have big rate increases.
President Obama and top Democrats promised that costs would go down for everyone with Obamacare. In reality, the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) has been like a national train wreck! Obamacare will exorbitantly increase our debt. Even the Obamacare web site is way over budget at $93 million - and the web site doesn't even work!
Read more about Obamacare's corruption in this month's feature article by Dr. Jerry Newcombe.
Obamacare is a great threat to freedom; it has no place in our country. In the days ahead, we must hold tight to our faith in Jesus Christ and hold tight to our convictions about freedom which our Founding Fathers held dear. We must stay strong and persevere; never give up! The only way to do this is to look up to the Lord and speak up before it's too late.

God bless you,

Featured Quote                             

"If you don't do this and if I don't do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."

-Ronald Reagan 

Obamacare Reminds Me of 'Animal Farm'

By Dr. Jerry Newcombe

Now that we've had just a few weeks of the mess that is Obamacare, it brings home how grossly unfair it is for the political class to impose it on the rest of us and not have to abide by it (for as long as it lasts). It may yet collapse on its own weight.

I feel sorry for the younger generation and especially for those just out of college. They have less of a chance to get a good job with benefits. Many companies continue to downsize because of Obamacare.

So these young people get less work. But they'll have to pay more for healthcare, which they may never see. Assuming they can register for it, which we now know is a huge assumption.

Last week, one liberal blogger described how he had been all for Obamacare. He was one of the few ones (relatively speaking) who managed to get through the computer system and register on-line. Lo and behold, his insurance costs were going to go through the roof, as was the deductible. So he said, forget it. He even said he wouldn't pay the fine either. Well, good luck with that.

In PJ Media, Roger Simon wrote, "Over fifteen hundred a year for a sixty-three hundred plus deductible? What healthy thirty year old would waste his or her money?"

Obamacare seems simple to understand in a sentence: You pay more, but you get less. Not to mention the loss of freedoms, the institution of a massive governmental bureaucracy, and the potential annihilation of healthcare as we know it.

At the very least, fairness would demand that all the politicians have to live under it. It's grossly unfair to force the rest of us into a system that doesn't seem to work, while the elite class is exempt from it. For now, they're even exempting the big companies from it (for a year).

All of this reminds me of the classic anti-Communist novel, Animal Farm, by the great British writer George Orwell (1903-1950). The short book is a parable of the Soviet Union.

And no, I'm not calling anyone a Communist. But Dr. Paul Kengor, Grove City College professor, documents in his book, The Communist, Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party USA (#47544). This is part of the public record.

Here's a spoiler alert. In Orwell's novel, you will recall, the animals revolt against the tyrannical farmer (Mr. Jones, a human), who represents the czar. But then as the animals look forward to sharing everything equally, the pigs in charge ultimately live high off the hog, so to speak.

After killing the farmer, the animals declare, "Remove Man from the scene, and the root cause of hunger and overwork is abolished forever."

The animals post "Seven Commandments"---the final one stating, "All animals are equal."

But as the plot develops, it becomes clear that the pigs (representing Josef Stalin, Leon Trotsky, and other Soviet leaders) have become an elite class.

At the end of the book, as the other animals---which do all the work and underfed---look into the farmhouse, they see the pigs enjoying a great meal. They can barely distinguish the pigs from the humans, whose regime they had rebelled against.

The Seven Commandments had been changed to just two: "ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL, BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS"

Today, we seem to have an elitists' class and the "hoi polloi"---the rest of us. As long as Obamacare is implemented as the law of the land, then it ought to apply to the president, his family, his staff, the Senators, and Members of the House of Representatives, and their staff. The law (and tax) should be good enough for the Supreme Court and their staff.

I've heard some Congressmen complain that their staff members can't afford it. Well, what about the rest of us?

In an earlier draft, I wrote only the Amish should be exempt, since they don't take part in the medical system. But on second thought: We all should be exempted!

Meanwhile, the Bible says differing standards are unfair and unjust: "Differing weights and differing measures-the Lord detests them both" (Prov. 20:10). Psalm 94 criticizes "those who frame injustice by statute." Paul strongly criticizes Peter in Gal. 2:14 for forcing a standard on the Gentiles that he himself was not living by.

Our nation's birth certificate declares that "all men are created equal." Are we to assume that under Obamacare, some are created more equal than others?
