Yomin Postelnik: Democrats’ War on Seniors is My War on Democrats

December 23, 2009

Democrats’ War on Seniors is My War on Democrats

Democrats are intent on pushing through one of the biggest monstrosities that this nation has ever seen, one that would kill healthcare as we know it, make across the board cuts in the options available to seniors and drastically increase premiums across the board.

Do Democrats care about any of this? No. The more premiums skyrocket, the more they believe that they can ram through total and complete socialized medicine. It doesn’t matter that government taxation will be the cause of the problem.

To add disgrace to contemptuous farce, something that Democrats seem to specialize in these days, Sen. Bill Nelson and Congressman Ron Klein are set to approve $1.2 billion to Nebraska in order to purchase the vote of Bill Nelson’s comrade, Sen. Ben Nelson. They’ll also vote to approve $100 million to purchase the vote of Louisiana’s Sen. Mary Landrieu.

Nelson and Klein are selling Florida down the drain and Democrats fiddle as our economy burns. (And thanks to them, so might our health care.) This is outrageous.

What can a candidate for state representative do about this? With your help, one heck of a lot!

I’ve been fighting against this “health care” horror since February, when Obama still had a popularity rating in the 60s and while no one else was paying attention.

When Democrats unceremoniously sneaked so called “healthcare” legislation into the so called economic “stimulus” bill, I sent out the following scathing rebuke:

A month later, when the media started to catch on and the Democrats went forward with their campaign of a thousand lies, I followed up with:

A state representative can do a lot.

Had local politicians vigorously expressed their sound beliefs in Venezuela in the 1990s, there would have been no Hugo Chavez. And if more candidates for state and local office throughout the nation stand up and sound the alarm, there will be no outrageous ObamaPelosiCare.

This campaign has been at the forefront of the battle against the socialized rationing of our medicine and the accompanying pillaging of our economy.

But we need your support as we continue to fight for this and other matters. So please log on today to and join our efforts to rollback Obamacare.

Moreover, early this year, I had a conversation with State Senator, and candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture, Carey Baker about the needs of South Florida voters. I stressed the importance of fighting against government rationed care. A week later, Sen. Baker proposed a bill asserting Florida’s right to opt out of this federal outrage. This was before Sen. Harry Reid’s opt-out clause was even thought of.

In fact, Harry Reid only made the opt out provision in response to state challenges. The opt out won’t do anything to prevent skyrocketing insurance premiums, but it will help rollback the complete socialization of our healthcare. This national provision is thanks to the efforts of one state senator here in Florida, and as a candidate, I planted the suggestion and gave him needed encouragement for his proposal.

As I said. we need your support as we continue to fight for this and other matters. So please log on today to and join our efforts to rollback Obamacare.

There’s a reason that people from all around the world flock to the United States of America whenever they need serious health care. And it’s not because of Ron Klein or Bill Nelson.

I will protect the rights of Florida seniors. Our Greatest Generation, our World War II veterans, our parents and grandparents deserve far better than the cruel and callous Democrat ravaging of our health care system.

I’ve been fighting this issue since before it arrived on the national stage. I’ve been blasting Democrats on it since they’ve started, when Obama’s approval ratings were in the 60s.

Our seniors are our most valued members of society. They have imparted the most knowledge to us and have built everything that we as a society have today.

And they deserve far better than the government rationed, third rate, so called “health care” that is the work of Ron Klein and Bill Nelson.

Bill Nelson and Ron Klein have established themselves as the two Grinches Who Stole Healthcare. We can and must stop them for the sake of Florida’s families. I’ve been fighting hard on this issue and I will continue to do so with your help.

But I need your help.

The reaction of some liberals and all of the media to Obama’s plan to ration health care for the elderly shows once and for all what conservatives have suspected for quite some time: that given the choice of abandoning their liberal dogma or saving their lives, far too many Democrat supporters would risk their health and that of their countrymen than so much as reassess the nonsensical, foolish and downright harmful rhetoric that is the Democrat Party’s far-left creed.

In the column “Just How Low Have Democrats Sunk – Is Killing Seniors Now Not Beyond Limits?” I expressed contempt for how Democrats had covertly snuck health care legislation into their so-called economic “stimulus” bill (a reckless collection of payoffs and wishful hopes that will do little other than further endanger this nation’s international credit rating).

Even the far left is taking notice. Conservative activist John Labriola sent me a copy of an email sent out by a far left group, Fire Dog Lake. John mentioned that this is the first email he’s seen from them in ages that actually makes sense. But it does.

Among Fire Dog Lake’s points regarding the disaster that is ObamaCare:

Forces you to pay up to 8% of your income to private insurance corporations — whether you want to or not
If you refuse to buy the insurance, you’ll have to pay penalties of up to 2% of your annual income to the IRS
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.
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 (sic)
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
So yes, even sincere protesters within the far left are waking up to this monstrosity of a power grab.
