The recently enacted CARS program, or ‘Cash for Clunkers’, had been estimated to cost $1 billion. The money went almost immediately, and now Congress and the senate are considering another allotment; up to $2 billion taxpayer dollars.
A simple, small government program that is, yet again, mismanaged and the cost totally underestimated. Yet some people think the government can run nationalized health care!
Let’s make this simple. Obama says he can insure an additional 45 million people, only raise a little tax on the rich, cut medical costs and save the taxpayers money overall.
Any second-grader’s math skills will tell you this is impossible. Rationing health care, cutting services and procedures, squeezing doctors and hospitals along with curbing Medicare benefits to the elderly will occur. This scheme will allegedly add over $1 trillion to the already historic national debt, according to the independent GBO (Government Budget Office). All you hope-and-changers should be impressed.
In the meantime, we have a month to contact all our representatives and voice our disapproval before their recess is over.
Write Congressman Ron Kind at 1406 Longworth HOB - Washington DC 20515.
Contact Sen. Russ Feingold at 506 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington D.C. 20510; or Sen. Herb Kohl at 330 Hart Senate Office Building (same ZIP code).
Tell them that nationalized health care is to be voted down, period, and if they vote for this massive new government empowerment the voters will have their heads at the next election.
