They Can Dish It Out

But don’t expect Democrats to put their own health on the line to back up their bullshit Socialized Health Scam.

At least someone in Congress is making them put up or shut up.

Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) is a practicing family physician of 33 years.  He is serving his freshman term in the House, first elected to Congress in late elections from the Bayou State in December of last year. Fleming currently practices medicine in Minden, La.

Imagine that…a doctor that’s not only a Representative, but is less that pleased with ObamaCare.

Last week, Fleming introduced House Resolution 615  which would oblige any member of Congress voting in favor of a government run health care bill to leave their private insurance plan and join the Democrats’ “public option” boondoggle.

Any member of Congress who votes against Obamacare wouldn’t be obliged to sign up for it but those who do, would.

Holy Bed Pans Batman! Someone has the nerve to ask Democrat Congress Critters to have to give up their cushy taxpayer provided health care in favor of the bullshit fiasco they are trying to push on the rest of us peasants?

Wonder how many Repubs did?

So far, Fleming told me, the entire Republican leadership has signed his Fleming pledge.

Well at least SOMEONE is showing a few balls.
I’m sure that the Democrats are sooooo confident in the excellent, premier care that we plebeians would be receiving that they must have beat a path to sign up right?

I asked him how many Democrats have signed the pledge.  “Despite reaching out to the Democrats, including the Speaker, we’ve had no Democrats sign up for it.”

No shit Sherlock!!  They aren’t about to have to put up with inadequate health care.  It’s perfectly fine for the unwashed masses, but NOT for a Liberal Commie Marxist.

“Americans know that there’s a disconnect between the American people and Congress,” Fleming continued. “Congress and Washington in general have become sort of a ruling elite.  We have a bad habit of passing laws that subject the population to all sorts of problems and headaches, yet we exempt ourselves. So I think it’s time the American people hold Congress accountable.  If Congress thinks that there should be a public plan, which would effectually lead to Canadian-style/United Kingdom-style socialized medicine, then they should be the first to sign up for it.

You’re damn right they should have to.  If they want to foist this Socialized crap on us, then they should have to put up with it just like us.  Maybe they’ll stop shoving all their Commie dingleberries down our throat if they have to be the first ones to deal with it.  Starting with Pres. Dingleberry himself.

Go read the rest of it.  Fleming dishes the dirt on what options Congress really has for health care and what WE have to look forward to.
Like…Euthanasia for the Elderly.  If they don’t want to off themselves for the common good…they are going to bug the ever loving shit out of them every five years until they do it to get some peace.

“The bill also requires mandated visits between doctors and elderly patients periodically to discuss end of life,” Fleming continued.  “And if you’re in a nursing home, the requirement is even more frequent.  That means euthanasia — that we need to be talking to the elderly about the fact that maybe they’re using up more resources and that perhaps they should not use more health care resources and allow younger, healthier people to use that resource money.  That’s the kind of savings the President wants to have.  As a physician, I am definitely against that.”

How many Liberals are going to be willing to sign up for this?

Not very damn many I’m thinking.

    I can’t say i’m surprised, one freakin’ bit. Just like every law they pass forcing things onto the people, or every law they want to force onto people, they are exempt. It’s alright to force the populace into socialised healthcare, but we’ll keep our snouts in the trough at your expense to feed our private health care. Nothing wrong with disarming every law abiding citizen in the country, and legislating them out of being able to defend themselves with any conventional means of defence, but you bet that we’ll still get ’round the clock secret service security and/or armed bodyguards protecting us and our families.

    A perfect example of the politician “Do as I say, not as I do” complex. I think it’s time for a second revolution, it’s clear to me that anything less will only slow down the march to total statism.

    Mr. Fleming should introduce a bill requiring any Senator or Representative, upon reaching the age of 62 to be euthanized. It’s good enough for the proletariat, it should be good enough for the ruling elite.

    All the more reason that we need term limits. If they were forced after they get out to live by the laws they pass, they might be more careful.

    Ahm purty schure I was a hollerin bout turm limits about the same time last year……funny I dont recall DJ sounding off in support. But I have slept since then……

    But I do agree.. do away with these fuckers and the “perks”. No more “retirement program” No more super deluxe healthcare package for life, No more voting for salary increase’s every fucking time they go into session.

    Oh and I also want to pay all my taxes to my state…. and my state can pay the Feds my share……. One tax to one entity.

    The cold hatred I feel for these people goes beyond words. No doubt my wife would have been triaged out due to complications. She has been hospitalized for nine weeks now. I buy my own insurance, thank God, I will continue to…and it won’t be cheap. Any my money is more or less gone, mostly more. But I had what I needed without some fucking bureaucrat killing my wife. If I lose it all looking after her, so be it. I do not have a right to be wealthy, to drive a nice rig or own a house. Life has its ups and downs. So if somebody doesn’t want insurance, or says it’s too expensive, sell your fucking house or a car to pay a bill.. but don’t bellyache to me about it.
    This hospital I’ve been living at for the last eight days has two MRI machines, two PET scanners and two CAT scanners, setting them back some sixty million bucks. And then there is the nuclear medicine and cyber knives used in surgery. And why the fuck don’t people mention the fact part of the reason insurance is higher is because the insurance companies end up quietly subsidizing those who don’t have insurance to a great extent. Like paying three bucks for an aspirin or seventeen for a vike.
    It pisses me off, fuck that shit. Yes, you will be treated…….but DO NOT tell me I owe you something. We won’t get along.

    Wanna see an example of government run health care. I am an example. I am on Tricare Prime Remote , and was put on a high blood pressure medicine. It is a beta blocker. My doctor gave me 1 months worth of samples and a prescription. I turned in the script in to my pharmacy and got turned down by Tricare until they got a letter from my doctor. That was over a month ago and as anyone who knows anything about beta blockers, you can’t just go off them cold turkey. (Yes, I did talk to my doctor and he tried to phone Tricare and sent a letter 2 days after he got the call from the pharmacy.) As I travel a lot, I would have been screwed if the doctor (a retire Flight Surgeon) didn’t have another month of sample to give me.

    And, yes, I am STILL waiting on Tricare to approve my meds. (As a side note, I was also prescribed heavily flouride toothpaste due to another issue. Tricare DOES NOT EVEN COVER IT!!) :em96:

    Term limits tied to public financing for candidates.

    Term limits, yes.

    Public financing for candidates, absolutely not.

    Absolutely no limits on what a candidate can receive, and instant notification on the web.

    Public financing, in Illinois (state motto – More crooked than New Jersey), over my icy cold dead body.

    Yeah, Teddy the Drunk and Sheets Byrd readily come to mind. Our money, stolen from us at the point of a gun, is keeping a cirrhosis-ridden corpse artificially animated for years and years, aside from paying for cases of said corpse’s only sustenance__ whiskey.

    You know… DJ is right. Term limits on Washington parasites are a splendid idea. So is curbing the funding. I think I said it before, “politics should be a hobby, a side-job, not a lucrative vocation”. I think that the concept of “professional politician” should not be. Every one of these bastards needs to have a real job, aside from politics. In addition, all the taxpayer-funded little perks the swine are now enjoying should be gone. I am not talking about sensible things such as a security detail, but all the rest? Get it the fuck out. These pricks need to remember they are our servants, not rulers.

    This makes me laugh. All I’ve seen lately are DGN’s ads which are full of mischaracterizations, if not outright lies, that people are picking up as the gospel truth.

    Obongo is the first president to both figure out that people really do believe everything they see on TV and to have the money to plaster that shit all over the airwaves. It’s terrifying.

    And I can’t believe I’m agreeing with most of what DJ said. I can hear the creaking of the snowpack in hell from my desk.

    If I could I would like to return to the common ground established regarding term limits. I honestly beleive that term limits is the only way that we wont spiral down toward societal turmoil. The polarization of our society is continueing, politically and now racially. There is no hope for “unification”. I think that if things continue as they are we will see increasing distance between the “two” americas. Whether that be Socialist / Conservative, Urban / Rural, White / people of color, etc. etc.

    We need one good human, (man, women, white, black, christian, jew.. I dont care) who has “influence” to stand for this. I think the majority of americans would support the issue. ….. Hey…..I wonder if Palin would be willing to consider this?

    Actually, Troy, they don’t. A Congressman has to introduce a bill to FOREGO a pay raise, otherwise it comes automatically. They put that in place about 25 years ago, when congresscritters were catching hell from their constituents about voting themselves pay raises. Now, each and every one of the congresscritters can truthfully say, “I didn’t vote for any pay raise!”

    NOPE….. I want to establish a flat rate …. they are there TO SERVE, make it a good sum 100K flat so they can afford the “local economy”. No trips unless thier State pays for it, they are after all representing the citizens of thier state. Its not supposed to be a “cushy” job, its a job of service that one voluteers to do taking time out of thier “normal” life.

    I don’t know about you, but I don’t think a non-human entity such as a corporation, PAC, or other special interest is a “person” that is capable of spreading money around to influence a voting position.

    Exactly why no corporation, PAC, or other special interest should be giving money.

    Which is why I said individuals should only give money, with instant notification, and no limits.

    So you would silence anyone who had a million dollars to give.

    Why am I not suprised?

    From OpenSecrets.org

    Because McCain opted into the public financing system during the general election, he faced an $84 million limit on what he could spend, putting him at a huge disadvantage compared to Obama, who raised $66 million more than that in September alone.

    Translation: Any future candidate who opts for the integrity of public funding will be as big a sucker as John McCain.

    Obama declined public financing and the spending limits that came with it, making him the first major-party candidate since the system was created to reject taxpayers’ money for the general election.

    Of course, who else? (Remember, Obama flip-flopped on this very issue)

    So now that Obama has broken the decades old seal and the cat’s out of the bag, what major party candidate will feel the need to accept the restrictions for taking the “high road” of public accountability? McCain became the public oversight dupe this time; don’t count on there being a next.
