ObamaCare has plenty of "incentives" to go around

A few days ago (December 1st), I told you of the bribe that Sen. Landreiu (LA - D) received for her yea vote on pushing the Senate health care reform bill out to the Senate floor for debate. Others have received what we'll call "incentives" to vote yea, also. The only reason I'm not using the term "bribe" is because they are not public officials.

By now everyone has heard that ObamaCare has received the "endorsement" of the American Medical Association (AMA) and the AARP. However, most people have not heard how those "endorsements" came about. Ask yourself :
  1. Why would the AARP endorse legislation which could lead to health care rationing and the so-called "death panels" directly effecting seniors ??
  2. Why would the AMA endorse legislation allowing Uncle Sam to mandate how they practice medicine ??
For both organizations, "it's all about the Benjamins" - money, and lots of it. In recent years, the AARP has become an insurance salesman by being a huge supplier of Medigap policies for seniors. Medigap policies pick up coverage where Medicare leaves off. If ObamaCare passes, huge cuts are in store for Medicare Advantage plans causing more seniors to need Medigap policies resulting in mega profits for the AARP. The AMA was scheduled to receive a 21% cut in physician reimbursement rates starting next year, but Obama promised to eliminate the cut if they backed his bill. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what they decided.

Others received similar "incentives." To read more, check out the entire Newsmax article (here). Basically the whole ObamaCare fiasco boils down to one thing - corruption. It's time we, the American voters, put a stop to it. We still have time as it is under debate in the Senate now. Contact (here) your Senators and tell them to vote "NO" on ObamaCare. The sheep (the American taxpayer, the uninsured, and the elderly) are everywhere. The wolves (Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Hussein Obama, Chris Dodd, and Tom Daschle) are among us, too. Myself and other sheepdogs need more of the sheep to join our pack as we try to put a stop to these Obam-inations. We need to heed the words of the 1986 rock anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister by getting to the polls in droves next year and issue pink slips to each and every Senator and Congressperson that votes in favor of this legialstion. We do need to make some changes to our health care system to get more people access. However, the current piece of crap that's been proposed is not the way to do it.

P.S. The AARP is already paying the price for stabbing seniors in the back. Over 60,000 of their members have told them "where to go" in the last few months by either resigning their memberships or not renewing. Good for them. If you're an AARP member, I'd encourage you to do the same because they have sold you out.

P.P.S. Check back next week for a new special series. It's one I promised a few weeks ago and it's gonna be "Czar-castic."
