With 253 Democrats in the House, up to 37 could vote “no” and the measure would still reach the bare minimum 216 needed, assuming every Republican also opposes the plan. Passage of the controversial measure will only further pollute the environment, making it impossible for some of them to survive. C.

former senior House GOP leadership aide who now runs Dome Advisors, a Washington research organization for the institutional investment community. “Those are just the wrong assumptions. Many voters -- particularly independents -- are disgusted with Washington. They hear words they don’t understand: reconciliation, side car legislation, self-executing rules. This only further pollutes the environment,” Boland argued.

Not so in 2010. Yet the time spent on health care and the controversy surrounding it could produce a major impact on the political environment. Irrespective of an individual Democrat’s vote on the issue, overcoming the toxic consequences on the public mood in many of these swing districts may be impossible. E.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on the first two nights after the president signed the bill, shows that 55% favor repealing the legislation. Forty-two percent (42%) oppose repeal. Those figures include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal and 35% who Strongly Oppose it.

The Health Care is nationalism that will fund abortion and cut off senior cirizens A. If we don’t repeal it we will face stiff penalties. Unfortunately, Democrats refused to listen. Jillian Rayfield, TPM LiveWire, Sen. Jim DeMint, released a statement on March 21, 2010 saying http://tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/03/demint-health-care-bill-must-be-repealed.php "Unless this trillion-dollar assault on our freedoms is repealed, it will force Americans to purchase Washington-approved health plans or face stiff penalties. It will fund abortions, raise taxes and insurance premiums, while reducing health care choices and quality. This arrogant power grab proves that the President and his party care more about government control than the will of the American people. Americans told Washington to keep its hands off their health care in opinion polls, at public protests, and at the ballot box, but their pleas were ignored. If the President and Democrats were serious about true health care reform, there were many free-market solutions we could have easily passed. Americans support commonsense reforms such as purchasing coverage across state lines, stopping frivolous medical lawsuits, and giving the same tax breaks to Americans who don't get their insurance at work. Unfortunately, Democrats refused to listen." B. Health Care is described as a “killer bill” Rep. Michele Bachmann, Mar 23rd 2010, (Elected in 2006, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is the first Republican woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota.) http://biggovernment.com/mbachmann/2010/03/23/we-must-repeal-the-health-care-bill/ The bill that barely passed, can only be described as a killer bill. It kills jobs, it kills opportunity, it kills promises that taxes wont rise, and we all know it will be a killer to the unborn. Sadly, the only bipartisan aspect of yesterday’s voting was the opposition to the legislation. Dozens of brave Democrats, stood up and voted against Pelosi’s wishes.

C. 17 Reasons Why the Government shouldn’t Provide Free Universal Health Care for All Americans. Joe Messerli, 01/19/2010, http://www.balancedpolitics.org/universal_health_care.htm 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. There isn't a single government agency or division that runs efficiently; do we really want an organization that developed the U.S. Tax Code handling something as complex as health care? "Free" health care isn't really free since we must pay for it with taxes; expenses for health care would have to be paid for with higher taxes or spending cuts in other areas such as defense, education, etc. Profit motives, competition, and individual ingenuity have always led to greater cost control and effectiveness. Government-controlled health care would lead to a decrease in patient flexibility. The health-care industry likely will become infused with the same kind of corruption, back-room dealing, and special-interest-dominated sleeze that is already prevalent in other areas of government. Patients aren't likely to curb their drug costs and doctor visits if health care is free; thus, total costs will be several times what they are now. Just because Americans are uninsured doesn't mean they can't receive health care; nonprofits and government-run hospitals provide services to those who don't have insurance, and it is illegal to refuse emergency medical service because of a lack of insurance. Government-mandated procedures will likely reduce doctor flexibility and lead to poor patient care. Healthy people who take care of themselves will have to pay for the burden of those who smoke, are obese, etc. A long, painful transition will have to take place involving lost insurance industry jobs, business closures, and new patient record creation. Loss of private practice options and possible reduced pay may dissuade many would-be doctors from pursuing the profession. Malpractice lawsuit costs, which are already sky-high, could further explode since universal care may expose the government to legal liability, and the possibility to sue someone with deep pockets usually invites more lawsuits. Government is more likely to pass additional restrictions or increase taxes on smoking, fast food, etc., leading to a further loss of personal freedoms. Patient confidentiality is likely to be compromised since centralized health information will likely be maintained by the government. Health care equipment, drugs, and services may end up being rationed by the government. In other words, politics, lifestyle of patients, and philosophical differences of those in power, could determine who gets what. Patients may be subjected to extremely long waits for treatment. Like social security, any government benefit eventually is taken as a "right" by the public, meaning that it's politically near impossible to remove or curtail it later on when costs get out of control.

D. The Health Care is nationalism that will fund abortion and cut off senior cirizens Edwin Mora, Phyllis Schlafly at a National Press Club luncheon, August 12, 2009, (a major conservative leader since the early 1960s.) http://www.cnsnews.com/Public/Content/Article.aspx?rsrcid=52369 Schlafly described the Democrats’ attempt to overhaul health care in the United States as nationalism that will fund abortions and cut off those senior citizens with costly health requirements or who need expensive treatment.

March 25, 2010, (A no non-sense conservative columnist who employs a unique combination of historical facts and common sense. ) http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/21339 The U.S. federal government controlled only 13% of the U.S. economy when Obama took office a short fourteen months ago. Today, after consuming the auto industry, the bank and investment industry, the insurance industry and the health industry, the Fed will control roughly 50% of the U.S. economy.

C. Government running our health care is “unacceptable.” Edwin Mora, Phyllis Schlafly at a National Press Club luncheon, August 12, 2009, (a major conservative leader since the early 1960s.) http://www.cnsnews.com/Public/Content/Article.aspx?rsrcid=52369 “Anybody who thinks that health care is going to cost less if the government runs it must believe in the tooth fairy,” she said. “It isn’t going to happen and the idea of letting the government run all of our healthcare industry is simply unacceptable.”

Would reduce demand for investment Washington Times, March 24, 2010, http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/mar/24/healthy-tax-increases-not-onlyon-wealthy/ Imposing a Medicare tax on investment income "would reduce demand for investment, which is the last thing that the economy needs right now. It would slow [economic] recovery, reduce employment opportunities and hinder wage growth," said Karen Campbell of the conservative Heritage Foundation. "Less investment, lower investment values and lower wages hinder the ability of households to build wealth." C.

8. Free market HealthCare
A. Fixing health care requires freedom and free markets B. Better left to the state governments A. Fixing health care requires freedom and free markets The Cato Institute, 2010,(is a libertarian think tank, is non-partisan, and its scholars' views are not consistently aligned with either major political party.) http://healthcare.cato.org/free-market-approach-health-care-reform “The president’s proposal — a government takeover of health care — is not the solution. Fixing health care requires freedom and free markets.” B. Better left to the state governments Paul M. Weyrich, December 6, 2007 (is Chairman and CEO of the Free Congress Foundation.) http://www.aim.org/guestcolumn/health-care-improvement-without-federal-government-control/ The major problem with health care is that Americans have ceded to the Federal Government a role it should not have, particularly because the United States Constitution does not enumerate health care as a power of the Federal Government. True, government has a responsibility to ensure that there are medical standards in place to prevent abuse, malpractice and corruption but this is better left to state governments.

9. Privacy
A. The Fed employees can access your health record. Say good-bye to privacy B. Section 431 makes the IRS divulge taxpayer identity information A. The Fed employees can access your health record. Say good-bye to privacy Lonely Conservative, quoting the Institute for Policy Innovation Aug 27, 2009 (a free-market think tank and presumably no fan of Obamacare) http://www.lonelyconservative.com/2009/08/27/health-care-bill-violates-privacy/ Over at the Institute for Policy Innovation (a free-market think tank and presumably no fan of Obamacare), Tom Giovanetti argues that: “How many thousands of federal employees will have access to your records? The privacy of your health records will be only as good as the most nosy, most dishonest and most malcontented federal employee…. So say good-bye to privacy from the federal government. It was fun while it lasted for 233 years.”

Section 431 makes the IRS divulge taxpayer identity information Lonely Conservative, quoting the Institute for Policy Innovation Aug 27, 2009 (a free-market think tank and presumably no fan of Obamacare) http://www.lonelyconservative.com/2009/08/27/health-care-bill-violates-privacy/ Section 431(a) of the bill says that the IRS must divulge taxpayer identity information, including the filing status, the modified adjusted gross income, the number of dependents, and “other information as is prescribed by” regulation. That information will be provided to the new Health Choices Commissioner and state health programs and used to determine who qualifies for “affordability credits.”
