I just listened to Samaritan Ministry’s response to Obamacare HR 3590. It is a great, valuable listen: http://www.samaritanministries.org
The bill is the most aggressive takeover of the private sector in the history of America. We’re sickened by how Congress broke its own reconciliation rules, lied about how money would be saved, and passed the most overreaching bill in history. What a travesty and a mockery of our Constitution, a real punch in the face to America.
We are so incredibly opposed to this bill. Contrary to what you may think from listening to the news, health care will go down and people will die because of HR 3590. Proponents have fallen for the dramatic stories of the left about lack of health care leading to deaths. It doesn’t take much economic understanding to note that because government took over health care, we will see quality nosedive and a welfare-type bureaucracy blossom. Yet, speaking of death, the bill does allow for public funding of abortions. Not one pro-life organization endorsed HR 3590, which should have spoken volumes to the so-called pro-life democrats who turned coat on their convictions for the unborn.
An interesting advantage that Samaritan Ministry cited is that doctors will be more open to cash payments for medical care. Samaritan will attempt to gain an exception to the penalty for refusal to purchase health care. As medical care diminishes in years to come, people like us who pay upfront with cash will rise to the top of medical care. It makes sense: it’s sort of like shopping for a house without having to wait for a mortgage to go through; if you had cash, you’d get the house you need.
Now more than ever, Samaritan is the option for our family. We so believe in the program. Click here to apply, and let them know the Jeub family referred you.
