Health care bill a product of deceit

Re July 7 letter by John Aspel, “Slow down and give health care law a chance”

Only the Democratic Party (House and Senate) approved this plan; they would not even consider any input from the Republican Party. They actually had to bribe two senators with several million dollars to get enough votes in the Senate. (2 Chronicles 19:7: “Now let the fear of the Lord be upon you. Judge carefully, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.”)

Then, in the House, six Blue Dog Democrats (including Bart Stupak) were pro-life and would not vote for the bill because it had money in it to pay for abortions. To get the votes necessary to pass the bill, Obama told them he would sign an executive order to not allow any money to be used for abortion. As it turns out, this was a lie because the bill does have money for abortion. Now Obama has mandated that all religious organizations will have to pay for abortions and contraceptives in their health care plans.

Obama also stated that there was no tax increase in the bill; now we know that this is a lie and has been identified by the Supreme Court. The Washington Post Fact Checker has given Obama several Pinocchios for lying since he has been president. He is constantly trying to deceive (same as a lie) to push across his agenda. Any bill that requires you to lie, cheat, and steal to get it passed can’t be good for the American people.

My parents and grandparents always taught me that a man is only as good as his word. If his word is not good, then Obama is not good for this country. (John 8:43-44 (paraphrased): “If you are a liar, you are the son of the devil; because he is a murderer and not holding to the truth, there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”) In my life time, I have discovered that if you follow the devil, you are headed to destruction.

Also remember, the government controls Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Postal Service. All three of these organizations are basically bankrupt. The taxpayers have to contribute several billion dollars a year to Fannie and Freddie so they can pay for houses that others will not pay for.

The U.S. Postal Service is talking about permanently closing some of their offices and closing others on Saturdays because they can’t afford to operate as they presently do. Medicare and Social Security are basically bankrupt (Obama has plans to remove $500 billion from Medicare in the next 10 years and to add 30 million more people to Medicare. It doesn’t take a genius to see what this will do).

Social Security is supposed to be nonexistent in a few years due to the lack of money. Remember, the Democratic Party, under President Johnson, decided to start taking several billion dollars a year from Social Security to cover their spending habits. Our nation is at the point of bankruptcy due to the crazy spending habits.

Now, are you still trying to tell me that you want the government to handle your health care? They need to stay out of our lives and let us make reasonable decisions for ourselves. I have worked all of my life to support myself and my family and I am tired of supporting people that don’t try to support themselves.
