60 Plus reaction to House passage of ObamaCare

Democrat Leaders Poke Seniors in the Eye

60 Plus Association Chairman Jim Martin made the following statement following the House of Representatives passage of Obamacare:

“Today, liberal Democrat leaders forced through a health care reform plan that is horrible for seniors. Seniors, especially those on Medicare, will see cuts to services and will see the quality of care diminish.

There have been reports that over 40% of doctors will stop taking Medicare. Walgreens stores in Washington state have already announced they’ll stop taking new Medicare prescriptions next month because of low reimbursement rates. The effects are already being felt.

I hear from seniors every day who fear this bill will be their death knell. Seniors deserve the best care available, and President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid have just stuck their finger in the eye of every senior on Medicare, and guaranteed that won’t happen.

Seniors are a unique group. We’re concerned, we pay attention and we vote. Seniors have long memories, and we will not forget this betrayal. The senior citizen tsunami is gearing up to hit Washington in November, and no one is safe.”

    We need to combine our efforts, and remove all who voted in the Health-care system and themselves a raise in pay whilestopping COLA to Social Security for 2 years. I’m in favor of term limits for all who represent the citizens of the USA in Congress.

    I agree. I’ve thought that for many years being elected to office was not a lifetime job. We need fresh people with fresh ideas and those that believe in our constitution and small government. Our politicians are out of control and have become extremely arrogant to the American people. The old saying, “Do as I say, not what I do,” seems to fit with the politicians that have been in office way too long.

    I contacted the office of my U.S. Congressman, Ron Kind. It was before the “Obummer” Healthcare law was passed. I asked his assistant whether he, Congressman Kind was going to be covered by the act.

    I was assured that “Of course” he would. What was good for his constituency was good for good old “Ron”.

    One week after the passage of the bill, he and the legislature opted the ENTIRE U.S. government (each and every swingin’ Richard (or Jane) out of the program.

    Wanna fix Social Security? Opt the federal government into it.
    Wanna fix Medicare? Opt the federal government into it!

    I have discovered, in over seventy years of life in this country, that the best way to determine if a polititian is lying, is to look to see if his/her lips are moving!

    The passage of this bill is just another “slow” step towards socialism. That is how governments take our freedoms – a little bit at a time.
