Why do Democrats Plan on Euthanizing between 180,000 and 405,000 Americans?
By: Jim Byrd
A Harvard study revealed that 45,000 Americans die each year because they do not have health insurance. “Having no health insurance means an early death to almost 45,000 people in the United States annually â€“ almost two-and-a-half times the number previously estimated,” according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that 2.4 million people die each year in the United States. Medicare insures 75% of those who die. Is Medicare responsible for killing 1.8 million Americans each year? Using the same logic employed by the Democrats that not having health insurance is a cause of death would dictate that Medicare is responsible for 75% of all deaths each year. This would make Medicare the number one killer in the United States.
Dick Durbin has the number of people dying from no health insurance at 25,000 per year. His math: “Today, 70 Americans will die for lack of health insurance, 70. And when the Republicans tell us, ‘Go slow, start over, take your time,’ weâ€™ve got to add it up. Itâ€™s 70 a day. How much time can we take?”
Harry Reid has the number at 105,000 per year. His math: “Two Americans die every ten minutes because they do not have health insurance.”
I would challenge anyone to produce a death certificate stating that the cause of death was “uninsured.” This health care bill is not about health insurance or health care, as neither were improved, but, two weeks after the bill was signed into law, the more defective aspects of each industry have been amplified. If this bill was a legitimate fix for health care via insurance, then the ensuing macabre conclusions hold true about the Democratic Party.
Assuming logic and commonsense are disregarded so the Harvard study that professes having no health insurance means an early death to almost 45,000 people is an absolute, then the Democratic Party plans to eradicate 45,000 Americans per year until the year 2019. These 45,000 unfortunate victims dying each year from lack of health insurance are now going to be rescued by the Democrats with the passage of the health care bill, but with a minor caveat: they will need to hang-on for another 4 to 9 years before the omnipresent panacea of government insurance can rescue them from the clutches of the Grim Reaper. Not medical science, not world-class doctors, not state of the art hospitals, but this behemothic gaggle of imbeciles, the current United States federal government, is going to save these lives by mandating the purchasing of health insurance for coverage in a medical industry, that when the Democrats are finished correcting, physicians will be letting blood, pulling teeth, and giving haircuts in their short robes. But as an obvious altruism by the Democrats, the Medicare cuts in the bill will decimate that little niche so badly that the elderly will be forced from the program, thus saving those abandoned by their government from a 75% chance of death by Medicare.
To sell their plan, the Democrats and Obama paraded victim after victim in front of anyone who would listen, telling their stories of having no health insurance and its effect on their lives. It was one sob story after another. But, when dealing with Democrats, the stories are not always as they seem. With just a perfunctory investigation, most of the victims had access to insurance and chose not to capitalize on it, or were dropped from their insurance for reasons they caused, but all had access to medical care regardless of their standing with their insurance companies. There are legitimate cases, but not one was presented by the Democrats.
The urgency of this health care bill was unprecedented, and the Democratsâ€™ concern and passion was so deep for these victims that the bill had to be passed posthaste, at the expense of the Constitution, which after short dialogues defending their authority, the Democrats do not understand the document anyway. However, as intentionally designed, this bill will not save even one victim on parade, at the minimum, for four years, and will not save their other uninsured brethren until 2019. Beginning in 2014, those who don’t have health insurance now because they cannot afford it will be forced to purchase the insurance they cannot afford now, at a much higher premium, to save them from the certain death of being uninsured, or go to jail.
â€¢ Requires individual mandate to obtain health care coverage
â€¢ Provides subsidies for families earning up to 400% of the poverty level or, under current guidelines, about $88,000 a year, to purchase health insurance
â€¢ Establishes state health insurance exchanges
â€¢ Employers with more than 50 employees must offer coverage
â€¢ Employers with more than 200 employees would be required to auto-enroll all new employees in health care plans
â€¢ Employers permitted to offer employees rewards of up to 30% of the cost of wellness programs
â€¢ State pilot program for wellness programs
â€¢ Expands health insurance coverage to 32 million people. But still leaves 24 million uninsured, according to the CBO
So, what have we learned in the two weeks since the passage of the bill? By the year 2019, the Democrats will have squandered trillions of dollars, done irreparable damage to the economy, perpetuated job losses, decimated the health insurance industry, decimated the health care system, jailed thousands for not buying mandated insurance, ripped the Constitution asunder, still only cover only half of those without health insurance, and the Democrats, according to their math, will have euthanized approximately 405,000 Americans because of the mathematical trickery they used to pass the bill. According to the CBO, 42% of the estimated total of uninsured in 2019 will still be uninsured, or 24 million people walking about with a death sentence for lack of insurance. A number that, after it is all said and done, is equal to the number of uninsured now. Barack Obama and the Democratic Party have set in motion a spending spree that will, by the year 2019, leave this country with a debt of 82% of GDP. Barack Obama and his Democratic lap dogs’ legacy will continue to spend 1.72 million dollars per minute for the next ten years with no effective difference in the number of uninsured. Again, this is not about health care. Hope and Change.
