Leftist Feigns Outrage Over Senate Bill

An email from the radical leftist (and Lieberman stalker) Jane Hamsher:

Kill The Senate Bill

The Senate health care bill must be killed. We must do better for health care than this.

Hi Firedoglake Activist –

The Senate’s health care bill must be killed.

It is an ungodly mess of errors, loopholes, and massive giveaways. When the American people find out what’s actually in this bill, they will revolt. Congress and President Obama have no choice but to do better for health care than this bill.

Sign the petition: the Senate health care bill must be killed.

How bad is the bill?

  1. Forces you to pay up to 8% of your income to private insurance corporations — whether you want to or not
  2. If you refuse to buy the insurance,  you’ll have to pay penalties of up to 2% of your annual income to the IRS
  3. After being forced to pay thousands in premiums for junk insurance, you can still be on the hook for up to $11,900 a year in out-of-pocket medical expenses.
  4. Massive restriction on a woman’s right to choose, designed to trigger a challenge to Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court
  5. Paid for by taxes on the middle class insurance plan you have right now through your employer, causing them to cut back benefits and increase co-ays
  • Many of the taxes to pay for the bill start now, but most Americans won’t see any benefits — like an end to discrimination against those with preexisting conditions — until 2014 when the program begins.
  • Allows insurance companies to charge people who are older 300% more than others
  • Grants monopolies to to drug companies that will keep generic versions of expensive biotech drugs from ever coming to market.
  • No reimportation of prescription drugs, which would save consumers $100 billion over 10 years
  • The cost of medical care will continue to rise, and insurance premiums for a family of 4 will rise an average of $1000 a year — meaning in 10 years, you family’s insurance premium will be $10,000 more annually than it is right now.

    I could go on, but it should be clear: this is not reform.  This is a con job.

    Sign our petition: kill the Senate bill.

    Make no mistake, we need health care reform.  But the Senate’s idea of reform is a disaster, and will make things far worse than they are today.

    We will continue to fight for real health care reform.  Now, we must kill this fake reform.

    Thanks for all you do.

    Jane Hamsher


    P.S. Please, after you’ve signed, forward this email to your friends, family, coworkers – anyone you know.  It’s critical we act fast to kill the Senate bill, and we need everyone we can on board.

  • We agree with Ms. Hamsher on one point. This is a con job.

    And she is a major part of it.

    In truth the left is merely pretending to be outraged. They know that they will get everything they want, and more, once they get their foot in the door.

    This is simply Clintonian ‘triangulation.’

      The only reason why Dems don’t want this anymore is because they took out the public option. Which just shows how that is all they were ever after.

    2. Liberals Demise says:

      This is another C.Y.A. tactic for re-elections.

      I agree with both of you – however considering that the Democratic Republic that is America, Personal Privacy, Taxation without Representation and Citizens Freedom & Rights, the Constitution and Christmas are all being defiled this week by the DNC – I have to have a laugh at this whole mess (created by the Thug Administration just to get a ‘legacy’ (joke is on American’s citizens, it is to secure Democrat power and control for ever).

      For Conservatives, the tiny group of real Republicans, Libertarians, those fools to weak to be anything other than Independent or Moderate and the tiny, tiny few of real Democrats – this monstrosity of taxation masquerading as a healthcare ‘reform’ bill goes too far.

      And for the ilk of Kucinich and those moonbats who are of like mind – this monstrosity of bowing to the insurance companies CEO (Big Insurance) does not go far enough.

      It is a hypocrisy that would be laughable, if the passage of this un-Constitutional, illegal, immoral and not only economy busting, but Individual American citizen Rights destroying ‘bill’ was not looming to be a reality.


      On that vein, I must go to the Gov site and Thank my Republican Senator for voting NO on this mess –
