EDITOR’S COMMENT: I have been privileged to feature some of Louis Woodhill’s commentaries in the past, and this is another very-well written commentary on why Obamacare must disappear. Unfortunately, this particular article appears in Forbes magazine, and I have been unable to obtain their permission, which is not allowed under their usage agreements, to republish his comments. So, I will be providing you with a few key excerpts of his comments, and I invite you to read all of them by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
By Louis Woodhill:
Here is the bottom line on Obamacare and the bizarre Supreme Court ruling upholding it: “We, the People of the United States” simply cannot let our political elites get away with this. On November 6, we must go to the polls and start another American Revolution. This time, “the shot heard round the world” will be the repeal of Obamacare.
… The Obamacare bill was written in secret. It was brought to the floors of the House and the Senate without committee hearings. The people that voted to pass the bill had not read it. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bought the last few votes they needed with taxpayer money via back-room deals with names like “The Louisiana Purchase”, and “The Cornhusker Kickback”. Ignoring the sharp rebuke from voters contained in the election of Scott Brown to the Senate, the Democrats obtained final passage of Obamacare via “reconciliation”, a process that was never intended for this kind of legislation.
… Republican candidates, especially for the U.S. Senate, must campaign against Obamacare and promise that, in office, they will fight for its repeal. Obamacare is so crazy, so dangerous, and so ultimately unworkable, that replacing it with nothing would be a huge improvement. However, it will be easier for Republicans to win in November if they are able to articulate a conservative vision for health care reform.
… If President Obama had been in charge of health care in 1950, his solution to polio would have been price controls on iron lungs.
… No sane person would want health care to be a “right”. Such a right would soon devolve to nothing more than the right to call a government “800” number that is always busy. The relationship that a patient wants to have with a health care provider is that of “customer”. Paying customers have power, and businesses treat them with respect.
…With the recent Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, “We, the people” are on our own. The political elites on both sides of the aisle have become so inbred, so corrupt, and so self-serving that we cannot look to them to protect our freedoms and our interests. (my emphasis)
