Are we the only people who are worried?

The health care bill is taking away our freedom and increasing our healthcare costs. This will be the first time that the government has mandated that you must buy a product or service. If the government can mandate that you must buy health insurance, they can mandate that if you are over weight you must join a government approved health club or diet plan at your expense. Goodbye chips, donuts and ice cream. Dear Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, can I have popcorn at the movies. Healthcare coverage and what is included is no longer up to each individual for their specific needs, but decided by a government bureaucrat who knows what is best for you.

So far some of the mandates include:

Children up to age 26 can remain under their parent’s healthcare coverage; employers now must include coverage for contraception and abortion just to name two.

No matter what your view on these issues you should be aware that it increases your health insurance cost. Insurance companies don’t pickup the added cost; they pass it on to you.

As you probably already know, on February 10th, the controversial regulation that forces almost all employers to provide health insurance coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives, and sterilization, without a co-pay, that began last August, came to a head.

As Mike Brownfield with The Heritage Foundation said, “individuals and leaders from various faith backgrounds, including Roman Catholic, Jewish, evangelical, and Protestant traditions spoke out, prompting President Obama to announce an “accommodation” in response.”

What you probably didn’t know is that “the so-called accommodation turned out to be nothing more than a smokescreen. The Obama Administration ultimately finalized the August version of the rule, without any changes. The same rule that had caused the controversy in the first place, was the rule that was finalized, within hours of holding the press conference about the accommodation.”

Is there any lie that our President won’t say?

The following video speaks about the dangerous flaws at the root of Obamacare. In the video, George Weigel, says that Obamacare puts our society’s core in jeopardy:

“What is at stake here ultimately is whether civil society will survive, and whether voluntary institutions or voluntary associations ranging from the traditional family to multimillion member organizations like the Catholic Church to small businesses will be allowed to function only if they imitate the government, only if they imitate the state.”

Also in the video, Matthew Spalding, vice president of American Studies at The Heritage Foundation, says that:

“What is happening has little to do with health care or even public policy and everything to do with the role of government in the most immediate and intimate matters of our lives. All is subject to government control, regulatory dictate, and administrative whim. Nothing will be allowed outside of the new regulatory scheme: no independent state programs, no individuals or businesses permitted not to participate, no true private market alternatives.”

This is chilling stuff.

As many have said, Obamacare has nothing to do with healthcare, and everything to do with government control.

Rick Santorum has been campaigning in Colorado this week, trying to re-establish himself as the conservative challenger to Mitt Romney.  Yesterday in Woodland Park, he stressed that Mitt Romney as the author of “RomneyCare” cannot challenge the President for backing “ObamaCare.”  Santorum is also criticizing Gingrich for his prior support of a health insurance mandate.  Santorum recognizes that countries like Canada are free-riders when it comes to drug development costs.  If the United States stops paying for drug development costs, innovation will be curtailed.

James Dobson appeared with Santorum at a rally in Colorado Springs.  At that appearance Santorum acknowledged that his reputation as a staunch social conservative may have cost him votes in Florida, based upon whether he can beat President Obama in November.  Santorum insisted that the stated positions of both Romney and Gingrich do not differ significantly from his own stated positions.

The Tuesday caucuses have a great potential to shape the GOP Presidential primary.  The Nevada caucus on Saturday is expected to produce a Romney win, due in part to the high percentage of Mormans living in Nevada.

Last night I sat down and read the 55 page booklet, From Shadow Party To Shadow Government, written by David Horowitz and John Perazzo.

I have seen programs that have talked about the Shadow Party but I was shocked by many of the things that I read in the booklet, especially the influence of the Shadow Party in Colorado Politics.

You will probably remember Barack Obama’s statement on October 30, 2008 when he said that “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” At that time many did not fully understand exactly what he was planning. Three plus years later many now understand what he was saying, and it is not what we want.

Did you know that in August 2008 at the Democrat National Convention in Denver that Rob Stien, an aide to Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown during the Clinton Administration, led a panel discussion about “The Colorado Miracle?” The Colorado Miracle was the stunning political development by several Soros-funded state organizations that changed both U.S. Senate seats, several congressional seats, the governorship, the secretary of state’s office, and both houses of the legislature from Republican to Democrat in November 2008. Their plan changed Colorado from a red state to a blue state in one election cycle. There plan was to take The Colorado Miracle and export it to other states across the country with the ultimate objective of taking control of the American political system.

Did you know that George Soros has been working on his Shadow Party plan for over 20 years?

Did you know that Colorado was a laboratory experiment for the Shadow Party?

Did you know that George Soros was behind HillaryCare? With HillaryCare, Soros wanted to ration care to terminal and seriously ill patients for whom medical attention offered little payoff and who were thus a burden on the system. It was the forerunner to the “Death Panels” in Obamacare.

Did you know that Soros was concerned about the unruly free speech that defeated HillaryCare are thus started working on campaign finance reform? He was successful in 2002 with the McCain-Feingold Act. And of course, because McCain helped Soros, he contributed to McCain’s campaign. The McCain-Feingold law effectively defunded the Democrat and Republican Parties and allowed Soros to step in with the Shadow Party composed of radical get-out-the-vote 527 funding entities.

Did you know that when the Shadow Party was launched on July 17, 2003 at George Soros’ Long Island estate that Progressive Insurance mogul Peter Lewis was in attendance and pledged $10 million to the cause on that day?

Did you know that after the Democrats won control of Congress in 2006 that Soros and SEIU president Andy Stern created a PAC that put pressure on congressional Democrats that did not support their cause?

Did you know that George Soros was the one who selected Barack Obama in December 2006 to be president? He selected Obama over Clinton because Obama shared all of Soros’ values and he could be counted on to support his causes. Soon after Obama was elected members of the Soros coalition began showing up in the administration, such as Van Jones.

Did you know that it was Soros that pushed for the stimulus package just a few days after Obama’s election that would provide funds for state and local governments? It was the first payoff to key Shadow Party elements.

Did you know that Obama’s hard-line foreign policy toward Israel is a result of George Soros’ full-blown hostility to the Jewish state? Soros is a Jew, and was an assistant to an official in the fascist government whose job it was to confiscate the property of Jews headed to the gas chambers.

The Shadow Party has united the forces of the radical and liberal left and has expelled moderates in the Democrat Party.

The Shadow Party is now the Shadow Government in the White House. Obama is the puppet, Soros is the puppet master.

“Tom Price (R-GA), chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, understands health care better than most. Before coming to Congress, he spent nearly 20 years in private practice as an orthopedic surgeon. He’s now using the lessons from that experience to undo the damage of Obamacare by promoting a plan called the Empowering Patients First Act”.

What about Obamacare is good? Mitt Romney thinks we should keep the good.

Back in April 2010, uh, last year, Mitt Romney was asked to compare Romneycare to Obamacare. He said that there were some similarities and some differences. One of the similarities that he likes is the incentive for people to become insured. Ah, he likes the mandate! He doesn’t believe that the federal government should mandate but it is OK for the states to mandate that you buy health insurance. According to Mitt, when the states mandate that you buy health insurance, they are creating a health insurance program. But if the federal government mandates that you buy health insurance, then they are intruding on states rights. Not on your rights, but on states rights. Now that Romney is officially running to be the Republican nominee, he says “Obamacare has gotta go, it’s horrible, and the first thing I’m gonna do is repeal it.” OK, which is it? Are you going to repeal the bad and keep the good? Or does it have to go? All of it! Romney hasn’t backed away from Romneycare. That’s because he likes it. He’s just trying to get nominated.

Do you think you can trust him?
