Dick Morris has done an absolutely fantastic video talking about how to stop Obamacare:
Now you’re probably saying, another health care argument? We’re hearing these day in, day out, all over the place. What makes this one so exceptional? I’ll tell you what makes this one great: In this video, Dick Morris completely ignores ideology and just focuses on making powerful arguments against the plan that touch almost every group in American society.
* If you’re getting Medicare, Barack Obama is going to cut 500 billion dollars out of the program. That means the quality of your care is going to dramatically drop off.
* If you have no insurance, Barack Obama is going to force you to buy insurance. The CBO estimates it will cost slightly less than 20% of your income. Can you afford to take that much of a hit to get your “free” insurance?
* If you already have insurance, there is going to be a 1/3 tax on insurance premiums. Currently, only 15% of plans are over the threshold that gets taxed, but soon, because of medical inflation, a much larger percentage of plans will be taxed. So, this is going to turn into a massive tax on the middle class.
Additionally, the quality of care across the system is going to be destroyed because you can’t adequately cover 30 million new people without large numbers of new doctors and nurses, none of which will be provided by the plan. In fact, according to a survey done by Investor’s Business Daily, 45% of doctors said they’d retire or consider closing their practices if this bill passes. So, the number of people covered will dramatically increase while the number of people caring for them will dramatically decrease. Say “hello” to rationing.
In other words, this bill is lose/lose, all the way around, for almost every segment of the American population. So, no matter whom you’re talking to, Dick Morris has just given you an argument that cuts across political boundaries that you can use to try to reach them.
