ObamaCare: 10 Key Questions, Part 3 – Cost

Questions to ask our [Doctors,] Senators and Representative about ObamaCare

This is the third in a series of questions about ObamaCare (i.e., Socialized Medicine, Universal Healthcare, Single-Payer Healthcare, Government-Run Healthcare, or Nationalized Healthcare) that conservative and Christian patriots should strongly consider asking our U.S. Representatives and U. S. Senators over the next month, while the Congress is taking its summer recess. If the unnecessary and freedom-robbing healthcare reform being forged and forced by the current administration and the current Democrat-controlled Congress is to be stopped, it is through the voices of many Americans – We the People. It’s a priority TEA Party action item.The questions were developed by Gary Bower (American Values) and are intended to be used in interactions in our Senators and Representatives during the next 30 days.


President Obama has already conceded that there probably won't be a vote on healthcare reform until "the end of September or the middle of October." That means we have August to attend town hall meetings with our representatives and senators, stop by their congressional offices, write letters to the editor and educate our friends and family members about the dangers of socialized medicine. Don Wildmon of the American Family Association (AFA) encourages his supporters to form groups as part of the process of engaging members of Congress.


3. COST. The United States faces a debt crisis. According to many analysts, including Senator Judd Gregg (who is so respected by President Obama that he offered Gregg the post of Secretary of Commerce), the Obama budget will give us $11 trillion of debt at the end of five years and $17 trillion of debt at the end of ten years.

Question for your Congressmen: Why are Congress and the president pushing through a healthcare bill that would cost another trillion dollars over the next ten years? Shouldn't we concentrate on getting the debt under control first?

COMMENT:

Wouldn’t be better to work on saving the best of the current healthcare system and fix it incrementally? Fix what is broken. Wouldn't be better to get the government's finanical house in order before creating additional massive amounts of debt?
