I just want something simple, like the TRUTH!

WJR radio Detroit, John Dingell, the senior Democrat in the House of Representatives.


Paul W. (Smith), we’re not ready to be doing it, but let me remind you, this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

It’s going to take a long time to control the people… John Dingell, the most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives.  It’s going to take long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

Guess what?  Obama’s out there touting the fact that as of now, children with preexisting conditions are covered. They forgot to include it in the bill.  It is not there. They’re going to have to go back and fix it somehow.  They left it out.  Now, the point of this is pure incompetence.  They’re out touting all of these wonderful things in the bill and preexisting condition coverage for kids, it’s not there.

The Associated Press

“Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children. Obama made better coverage for children a centerpiece of his health care remake, but it turns out the letter of the law provided a less-than-complete guarantee that kids with health problems would not be shut out of coverage.”

Now, if he cares so damn much about the kids, how did this happen?  The point of this is, if this is a major thing to them and they screw this up, these are the people that are going to be writing a hundred thousand additional pages of regulations to go along with the health care bill that’s already 3,000 pages. We’re dealing with strict, utter, total incompetence.

Who the hell is this guy to run health care?  What’s Barack Obama ever done but learn Saul Alinsky?  What’s Barack Obama ever done but learn what he doesn’t like about this country? But what has he ever run?  What has he ever done in the private sector or the government sector that’s ever worked?  It’s an absolute mess.

Now, the public won’t feel the mandate until four years from now, and until then, Obama will cynically argue that nobody’s complained yet about the mandates, when there aren’t any.

In fact, do you remember when he ripped and criticized Hillary Clinton for health care mandates during the campaign?

This happened in 2008, February 21st in Austin.


When Senator Clinton says a mandate, it’s not a mandate on government to provide health insurance.  It’s a mandate on individuals to purchase it.  Massachusetts has a mandate right now.  They have exempted 20% of the uninsured because they’ve concluded that that 20% can’t afford it.  In some cases, there are people who are paying fines and still can’t afford it so now they’re worse off than they were.  They don’t have health insurance and they’re paying a fine.  In order for you to force people to get health insurance, you’ve got to have a very harsh, stiff penalty.

Here he is ripping Mrs. Clinton for exactly what is in his health care bill.  Obama is ripping Senator Clinton for suggesting a mandate for people to have health insurance.  He’s ripping her for that, which is what his health care legislation — what he just signed — does, although not ’til 2014, after the next presidential election.

Why is that, Mr. President, by the way? Why is it that the mandate doesn’t kick in until two years after you, God forbid, are reelected?

Friends, this is what we got.

He has not made good on a single promise.  Even now he still speaks about his promises since most of his health care bill phases in over four years.  And the mandates don’t happen for four years.  And the preexisting coverage for adults, that doesn’t happen for four years.  It’s not until 2019 that 32 million people are covered.

Do you understand that?

Thirty-two million people, that’s the current number, will not be fully insured until 2019.

That’s ten years, nine-and-a-half years: 2019 for all 32 million to be covered.  If you believe that.  I don’t even believe that.  In fact, the Senate bill doesn’t come close. No, it won’t cover all 32 million by 2019.  It won’t even be close to it.  There’s nothing in this that you can believe.

He’s criticizing Hillary Clinton for having a mandate that everybody buy insurance, and he’s pointing to Massachusetts where it doesn’t work because 20% of the people can’t afford it and then he says,

“In order to get people to do it you have to have a harsh, stiff penalty,”

…and he’s criticizing Hillary for having that idea.

That idea was signed into law yesterday.

The Washington Post,

Pelosi is out threatening the insurance companies: If you raise premiums, we’re not going to let you in the exchanges.

They’re going to have no choice but to raise premiums if they’re going to have to cover preexisting conditions, if they’re going to have to cover people from the moment they get sick and not before.  So if they raise premiums, uhhhh, they’re not going to be allowed in the exchanges. That’s Nancy Pelosi.  I don’t know if that’s in the legislation or not, but if it’s not in the legislation, they’ll pass it.  Nobody can stop ’em.

So there you have it. If they’re kept out of the exchanges, guess what?

Hello, single payer!

Even sooner than we feared it would happen.
