Republicans Blast Obama’s Newest Healthcare Reform Proposal

February 23, 2010 by  

Republicans blast Obama's newest healthcare reform proposalJust a few days before the White House-initiated bipartisan healthcare summit is to take place, President Obama released a new reform proposal on Monday that builds on legislation that was created by the Senate late last year. However, the administration’s latest attempt at an overhaul of the healthcare system has drawn ire from many Republicans who see it as another example of the Democrats’ refusal to compromise.

Obama’s new plan is, in essence, a combination of the House and Senate bills that were created by Democrats in 2009.

The proposal still gives the federal government the power to regulate the health insurance industry by blocking or limiting substantial premium increases for consumers. It will also dramatically scale back the Senate proposal for a tax on high-cost insurance plans and will utilize a Medicare payroll tax increase to plug the revenue gap, according to The Associated Press.

In evaluating the new plan, GOP leaders have said that the proposed legislation and the bipartisan summit on Thursday are simply veiled efforts by Democrats to push through their own agenda.

"This week’s summit clearly has all the makings of a Democratic infomercial for continuing on a partisan course that relies on more backroom deals and parliamentary tricks to circumvent the will of the American people and jam through a massive government takeover of healthcare," said House Minority Leader John Boehner.

White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer said the proposal is simply an "opening bid" going into Thursday’s summit.

    I don’t want a “Compromise”. I want the Government to get out of Healthcare and let the Free Market do what it does best – Provide competition and satisfy customers:

    • Doc Sarvis

      I didn’t see anything in the article you linked to that would prevent anyone from being kicked off their health insurance once the insurance company felt they were going to be too expensive to cover. I could be completely healthy through my life but as soon as I hit a certain age or if I had my first high cholestrol reading I could be kicked off this sort of coverage. I am also concerned with the lack of standards for doctors and for medications.

      • DaveH

        Read the contract Doc. If you dispute their actions, take them to court.

        • Doc Sarvis

          There is nothing to prevent every insurance company from doing the same thing (and put it in their contract). So they may have every contractual right to do what I stated. That does not solve the problem of having affordable health insurance access for everyone including low income folks who need insurance.

          • DaveH

            And there is nothing to prevent the Government from doing as they damn well please once they get control.
            Did you even read the articles I posted?
            I have never had Health Insurance because it is a waste of money.
            All you are doing is adding a middle-man’s salary to the costs. And on top of the additional cost they interfere with your doctor/patient relationships. And that would be even more true if it was run by disinterested Government officials. Nobody has to buy Insurance unless the Government gets involved and forces it.

          • Joe H.

            DaveH,
            I was just listening to Obummer and I could tell he didn’t have his “prompter” as he stuttered like crazy! I couldn’t quite figure out what he sounded like then it hit me. Listen to a huey just before it creates enough lift to leave the ground. whawhawhawhawhawhawhawhawha!!!!! He just can’t talk without his ‘prompter!!!!

      • s c

        Watch out, Doc. If you have reservations about MDs and medication standards, you will be forced to look for the main culprit. That culprit is the FDA.
        I may be wasting my time, as certain people on this web site don’t like to read or think, but I strongly suggest that you inform yourself in a hurry. Read a new book titled FDA: Fraud, Deception, Abuse.
        It’s no secret that the FDA is a pimp for Big Pharma. However, you may be forced to re-examine your health care reform wishes. I challenge you to read the book, look up some of the many DOCUMENTED research findings, and then try to look at Obummer as though he’s going to do America any favors in health care. Good luck, Doc. The next move is YOURS.

        • Joe H.

          SC,
          A company in Adrian Nichigan had FDA approval to produce tubing for kidney dialisis tubing, They had done all the research, or so they daid and had on PAPER! The first week that the company started production, the employees came doun with dermititis!!! the tubing would have killed ANY person on dialisis!!! FDA? PHAH!!!!

          • Joe H.

            Looks like I got in too much of a hurry on that post. Michigan, said, down all were misspelled. Sorry!

            Joe, I’m sure glad you caught your spelling mistakes so we didn’t have to listen to Coal miner & Denniso tell us about it!! ;-)

          • Joe H.

            Stephaan,
            I just got done checking out the former site we were on and they have updated it but you can’t get on it to post!!! It’s still screwed!!!

          • http://wwwNRA.com Stephaan

            That’s ok Joe. There are still plenty of liberals to slay here….
            The ignorant liberal socialists are running rampant spewing their adolescent mantra….

      If the free market did such a good job at providing services to society, such as health care, then there would be no need to even have any government oversight over companies. However, this is not the case. Although probably at least 80% of employees are provided health insurance by their employers in large companies, that percentage drops to maybe 60% or LESS in small businesses, which provide up to 90% of jobs.

      The uninsured employees and uninsured unemployed people are entitled to have health insurance, just like they are provided in every other developed country. If they can’t afford paying the exorbitantly high premiums that insurance companies offer in the individual market, then they deserve some help from the government.

      The free market system needs to be monitored by the government. The for-profit business community is interested in making money period. They will do everything they can to accomplish that, including not providing health insurance to their employees. Health care reform is needed badly! Actually, many businesses have gone under because of the high cost of health insurance premiums. Because of just this, I would think that Rethuglicans would favor health insurance reform, since they always cater to the business community.

      Finally, one of the main reasons cited by the CEOs of the Big three auto companies for imminent collapse, was paying exorbitantly high health insurance premiums on their employees. Reform should be a goal of both Democrats and Rethuglicans. I wish the Rethuglicans would quit trying to make Obama fail. You know that’s all they have been trying to do since the beginning of his term.

      The Democrats have plans to provide much-needed reform. All the Rethuglicans have done thus far, was to obstruct and criticize the Democratic plans. Rethuglicans don’t even have a plan. The last thing I heard on cable news, was that Eric Cantor had a one-page document of health care reform, which didn’t offer any real answers. It simply made remarks, such as “Stop malpractice suits.”

      The right thing to happen, would be for the Democrats to pass something in reconciliation, which has a public option. Get something straight too: The public option is NOT a government takeover; it is simply an OPTION other than purchasing private health insurance.

      • s c

        Ye gods! Will ultraliberal progressives EVER stop ranting about the “sins” of the so-called free market? It must take very little time to brainwash an ultraliberal progressive. WE DO NOT HAVE A FREE MARKET ECONOMY!
        Power-brokers, career politicians and their masters bastardized the free market and got us into this damned mess. WHY CAN’T YOU GET IT?
        If one of your role model icons told you to cut your head off because it could reduce America’s carbon footprint, WOULD YOU DO IT? I get the impression that you’d think it was a wonderful idea, and you couldn’t find an executioner fast enough.

      • Jana

        The problem is, it really isn’t a free market. The GOVERNMENT has put in so many restrictions as to what Insurance Companies can do. If we would be allowed to cross state lines and purchase Insurance it would be better. If Gov’t. got out of the way and let the competitive market place rule, then the insurance programs would have to get better or they would perish.
        Health care does NOT need to be MONITORED by Gov’t. If they were allowed to truly be free to open competition the people themselves would decide which business offers the best ‘product’ and services.

        • Joe H.

          Jana,
          Exactly! If the government would get out and allow cross state competition, then prices would drop! when I worked for one company, we had insurance from a company that was based in Canada and we never saw a bill! the state stepped in and said they couldn’t compete and we ended up having a co-pay, out of pocket, and the whole thing was totally screwed!

      • Joe H.

        Timmy,
        Careful there, your hero Obummer said today that he fully supports the free market!! Of course we all know he was just spewing the dem bull line!!! So on second thought ai guess you don’t have to be so careful!!!

        • Joe H.

          To all,
          I received this today from The Heritagr Foundation. I know you probably won’t read it all but I hope you do!!
          1.4 trillion: The record breaking federal budget deficit for 2009
          13 trillion:Projected budget deficits over the next decade under the
          Obama/pelosi tax and spend agenda
          $33,000 the amount spent by the federal government per household in 2009 up more than $13,000 since 2001.
          492 billion: the cost to tax payers of corporate welfare – one of 50 examples of government waste documented in a recent report by The Heritage foundation
          342: the number of federal economic development programs being funded by taxpayers. there are 130 programs serving the disabledand 130 targeting at-risk youth. consolidating these repetetive programs would save taxpayers billions of dollars.
          $57 trillion: the cost of the federal governments unfunded promises, including social security and medicare payouts for future retirees. This equals $184,000 dollars for every man, woman, and child in America!
          $19 billion: The amount spent in 2009 by congress on frivolous “pork” projects that use taxpayers funds to reward local special interest and pressure groups.
          $1.7 million cost to taxpayers for swine odor research, thanks to congressional earmarks. other examples of pork-barrel spending include $200,000 for a tatoo removal program in California, and $870,000 for a red wolf breeding facility!

      • Joe H.

        Tim,
        Your first sentence says it all!!! There was no need for government oversight! All they have done is make the costs soar. The regulations they put in place just stiffled across state line competition thus letting a few set prices in each state. They don’t need competition between them as there is plenty to go around, but if the option was opened to ANY insurance company the prices would naturally go down as the competition would force it!

      • BKWsr

        Tim, Where did you get your percentages. Good numbers(or imagination). The only thing good Obama is doing is controling the insurence pricing, But we need to get away from this cram the insurance on us whether we want it or not. That fixes nothing. you want to fix something. make healthcare afordable. NO ONE IN THE US DESERVES $300.00 an HOUR. Meds. are reserched on Government grants, are tax rightoffs. so explain to me why we are paying so much for them. why can you by plain aspirins 325mg for $2.00 yet 81mg for heart health cost $6.00. I do not want the government forcing me to by insurance. How many remember a life before the Gov. forced us to buy car insurance. They promised Cheap afordable. Prices jumped $300 overnight. Leave Social Security, medicare alone. As to taxes if you make over 100.000 a year. stand up and do your part. No More free give aways to corperations.squash unions, but support workers rights. BUY US PRODUCTS, They are safer for us and help our people.

  • DaveH

    Another good article on a better approach to high healthcare costs:
    http://mises.org/daily/3708

    From the above:
    “But will increased government involvement in the healthcare industry cause more or less corporate lobbying? Both mandated-private and single-payer, nonprofit insurance proposals will likely increase wasteful lobbying by corporate interests.”

    • Jana

      We know without a doubt that more lobbying will occur. If you have enough money, you can buy a Senator or Representative. This is wrong, but it is a fact. We have such a broken system, we need to get back to basics.

      • Joe H.

        Jana,
        If I hit the big lottery, I’m going to buy my own senator. shouldn’t cost more than a million or two!!!! What a crock these people in Washington are!!!

  • Harold Olsen

    I disagree with the Republicans’ claim that this is another example of the Democrats’ refusal to compromise. The Democrats are ALWAYS willing to compromise. You just have to understand how they define compromise. They define it as:

    You either do it our way or sit down and shut up!

    THAT’S how they define compromise.

    • DaveH

      Harold,
      They are just using Union tactics. They throw some ridiculous high demands out and then are willing to “Compromise” on something in the middle, as if those are the only choices.
      The Republicans need to turn that back on them by demanding much less Government and settling for the “Compromise” of just less Government.
      If there is one thing I’ve noticed about the Republicans over the years, it is that they seem to be loathe to point out the manipulative tactics of the Democrats. They need to get over that.

  • s c

    Has Obummer said ONE THING about the FDA and its pivotal role in screwing-up health care in America? NO! Has he dared to tell the American people how much the GOVERMENT is to blame for all but destroying health care in America? NO! Has he
    tried explain or defend the idea that the one thing that is most responsible for expensive, self-destructive health care [GOVERNMENT] requires ramming MORE government down our throats? NO!
    In effect, the ultraliberal progressives [aka 'Democrats'] have much to answer for, but it will never happen as long as Obummer tries to avert the nation’s attention away from THE worst possible manager of America’s health care [GOVERNMENT].
    Obummer’s ‘logic’ demands that we take more poison, in a twisted attempt to ‘get better.’ No thanks, Obummer. Kindly take a job at WalMart, and let us know if your community organizer skills can make you a competent shelf stocker.

  • Robert

    What don’t these politicians understand. Can’t believe this is back on the table. Where are the jobs?

    • Joe H.

      Instead of show me the money, SHOW ME THE JOBS!!!!!!!

  • DaveH

    Many Liberals think there would be no harm having the Government as a competitor in Healthcare.
    Here is an example of the direction we will head with Government as competitor (think GM):
    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Toyota-vows-quality-shakeup-rb-1686431964.html?x=0&sec=topStories&pos=1&asset=&ccode=

    Toyota has made more quality cars than any car company I know of. So they make some mistakes and get swarmed by the leftists who would love to drive them out of the market, so we would have no choice but to buy the crap made by the GM workers.

    • Doc Sarvis

      I would fault management, not the line workers.

      • DaveH

        My main point is that Government involvement in business leads to noncompetitive practices. Crony Capitalism is bad enough. Government ownership is worse.

        • Doc Sarvis

          Sounds like we need a balance of the two.

      • Joe H.

        Doc,
        SHOW ME THE JOBS!!!! The health care problem will be a lot lower when you put people back to work in non-service jobs. By service type I mean Mickey D’s and the like!!!

        • Doc Sarvis

          Gotta like that jobs bill President Obama is promoting along with bipartisan support in congress.

      Anyone who thinks that they can get accurate information from the web site of a Fox contributor is a fool. Dick Morris is just another conservative talking head, who can’t see past his nose. The same can be said for Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, et al.

  • Sweetness4Rock

    It’s funny, today I took a quiz on Europe(at school) and one question was about healthcare. I can’t remember the exact way the question was worded, but it pretty much asked what type of government would it be when the government of a country sets forth universal health care as an Ultimatum…I answered socialist and was right(review when the test was over and turned it). I put that answer because I believe that when choice is taken away from the people, to put it simple, it is socialist. Some of the previous posts pointed something out to me, what happens when your insurance dumps you because you “cost” too much? Then the answer, take it to court came up… Then I thought… Wait, would that do any good? Correct me if I’m wrong and call me dumb, but if these snakes can stomp on the US Constitution and not even get a slap on the wrist… then what can we dump-offs do? I am stepping into adulthood and will not exactly be starting out with a new car and a nice home if you know what I mean and really want to know….. What can I do when this situation we’re going through hits the climax where the government has full control just in time for me to be a dump-off? All answers besides sucking it up and bending over are welcome.

    • DaveH

      The only thing I can suggest Rock is to stay alert and informed on all political issues so you have intelligent answers to those who will try to paint you as ignorant because you don’t base your thoughts on Hopes and Dreams.
      Try reading articles at Cato.org, Reason.org, and Mises.org. You will get a perspective that you won’t find in the MSM.

      • eyeswideopen

        DaveH, I did want to thank you for referring me to Mises.org. I didn’t really know how much Reaganomics had screw us up, until I read that article by the Cato, Inst. chairman. Very impressive.

        • Sweetness4Rock

          It was a rhetorical question, the answer is don’t let it happen in the first place… Not as easy though because I’m a hard working American white man, so if I disagree with Obama then I’m a racist radical…

  • JeffH

    Obama and the Democrats record on the Health Care Poposals submitted have been disasterous to the American people and rightfully rejected y the un-included Republican party. You cannot trust them and intil they(Obama and Democrats)respond in kind to the voice of the people majority and prove their intentions are honorable and honest and not decietful, they will continue to be distrusted. Government run anything has been financially disastrous to the taxpayers. Health Care Reform is what is needed, not government run healthcare. The Republicans are right on this one for a change, but then again, some of them are hearing the voices.

    • JeffH

      Government reform is really the answer to all of this!

    • Tim

      Obama and the Democrats have never said anything about the government taking over health care. If you like what you already got, you can keep it, unless of course, the insurance company kicks you off because of a pre-existing condition.

      The rethuglicans don’t offer any solutions to health care. All they ever do is obstruct the bills that the Democrats pass. I think the Democrats should pass health care through reconciliation (with a public option). That would be a big improvement over what we currently have.

      • Joe H.

        Timmy,
        check out HR 956 if you are intelligent enough to do it!!!

        • DaveH

          He won’t. It’s much easier to Hope and Dream than it is to face reality.

          • Joe H.

            I know DaveH and it’s still a government controlled option but at least it’s controlled by the states and it’s a better plan in that it puts the politicos on the same plan as us!!! That,s why it was tabled in record time!! I just get tired of hearing them say the repubs haven’t suggested anything better!!!

          • DaveH

            I can’t for the life of me figure out how anybody can think that paying more bureaucrats to interfere in the healthcare system is going to make things better and cheaper.
            The average salary of a government worker is $70000/year. To do what? Interfere with the productivity of others is what.
            We need to put them back to productive work in the private sector. Hong Kong has the right idea. Leave businesses alone. Let the consumer decide what he/she wants and get government out of it.

          • Joe H.

            DaveH,
            I don’t think it’s a good idea. I said it was better than what Obummer and his gang of however many put out. At least the politicos and government employees would be on the same as us and so wouls the union members!!!!

      • Palin12

        Timmy, are you on welfare by any chance?

            Stephaan,

  • s c

    JeffH, government has no use for reform. There are too many people in Washington who have too much to lose by ‘letting’ us have health care reform. Government is not to be trusted with health care.
    These same fools refuse to talk about overbilling scams that Medicare continues to pay. Not unlike dead voters who helped put Obummer in the White House, America has many dead MDs who bill Medicare – and GET PAID. We have the highest drug prices in the world – thanks to the FDA.
    I don’t think most Americans realize what it will take to get reform. When it comes to a functional spine, most Americans just don’t have one. When it comes to Congress, forget it. When it comes to the AMA, forget them.
    THE solution is to keep government out of health care. Time after time, government is a proven failure. To hand over health care to the government is to load a pistol that has a bullet in every chamber. No one in his right mind would play that game – other than the many useful idiots who have already sold their sorry souls in the name of leadership and hope and change.

  • Palin12

    Barrack Hussein Obama’s newest health care scheme is no different than what congress debated last year. It still includes a mandatory clause to buy insurance or be fined by the IRS. Funny how during the democrat primary debates, BO disagreed with the Hildebeast on this mandatory clause but now he wants it. I will never support a policy that forces me to purchase insurance, while at the same time illegal aliens continue to flood our emergency rooms at taxpayers expense.
    Watch the debate:

    • Joe H.

      Palin12,
      today Obummer keeps talking about the people that can’t get coverage and the fact that people can’t get proper care and then in the same breath talks about cutting Medicare by over 50 billion dollars a year. what is that going to do for the group that is going to need special care the most? Does he think that isn’t going to bankrupt them??? The Mayo clinic in arizona has already said that they will not accept any more medicare patients after the first of the year! They said that they didn’t even cover costs for treatment let alone overhead!! This doesn’t even take into consideration the delay in payment in a lot of instances!!!

    Count on a lot more of this kind of harassment if the Healthcare Bill passes:

    I have always noticed that when a republican cannot get his or her point across they call everyone that they disagree with a liberal. I do hope that I am one. To me it does not matter one way or the other if the Health Care plan passes or not we all still lose in the long run. Health care is out priced already for most Americans. Insurance Companies cover what they want and charge an outrages premium for they coverage. And Doctors over charge the patient and the insurance company. And politician and lawyers help the insurance companies stay where they are untouchable, No caps on what they can charge or what they should cover!

    Either LIBERALS or LIARS, Ira, take your pick. Here’s an example of mr Osamas idea of politics as usual. Ramming Osama care through no matter that 56% of Americans DON’T want it!

    An Arrogant ObamaCare Plan details new taxes, cuts in Medicare and government regulations, crippling and obstructing the “bipartisan healthcare reform summit” on Feb. 25th signaling that the Democrats are not serious about starting over and including Republican ideas in their plans?
    Offering nothing new, the scheme defrauds America with a plan that repackages the same approach already taken by the U.S. Senate. A scheme that Americans have already rejected in the Latest Rasmussen Poll – as 56% Oppose ObamaCare!!!!
    The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cannot even score the latest ObamaCare scheme because it lacks enough detail to do so. The White House claims that the scheme will save $100 billion over 10 years and $1 Trillion over 20 years is refuted by the Wall Street Journal that estimates the bill will cost $950 billion over 10 years. To balance out Obama’s scheme a tax increase of more that 1,000,000,000 is needed in the next 10 years.
    Obama has lied again arrogantly introducing massive healthcare tax increases on every American earning less than $250,000/yr. Democrats will shove ObamaCare down every Americans throat like it or not, it will happen and Obama is pushing it through.
    White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said. “We took our best shot at bridging the differences.” He then indicated that the White House is open to the Democrats using a parliamentary tool called “reconciliation” to pass the bill without 60 votes in the Senate, saying that the president’s proposal is designed for “maximum flexibility” so that it could be attached to a budget bill as a way of averting a Republican filibuster.
    Every person will be hurt with increased costs of an out of control Government Run Health Care bureaucracy taking over private insurance with Federal regulations. The scheme completely ignores and does not include Republican proposals for a series of modest changes to bring down costs and improve coverage, including tort reform and new freedoms for insurance companies to sell their policies across state lines.
    How does Obama Plan To Pay For It ALL? – WITH NEW TAXES!!!!
    A record number of Americans are out of work and ObamaCare funding is more than $1 Trillion short and cannot be paid for without new taxes.
    Obama and the Democrats in Congress are taking money out of our pockets with more than a dozen new taxes created by the bill. These would add up quickly for families:
    *Elimination of the Medicare Part D (prescription drug) deduction ($5.4 billion);
    *A 0.5 percent hike in the Medicare payroll tax for single earners over $200,000
    *A tax on branded drugs ($22.2 billion);
    *An annual tax on the health insurers ($60.4 billion)
    *A 40 percent excise tax on “high value” health care ($149.1 billion in new taxes over the next 10 years); and joint earners over $250,000 ($53.8 billion);
    *Changes in health savings accounts (HSAs), ($5 billion);
    *A $2,500 cap on FSAs in cafeteria plans ($14.6 billion);
    *An increase from 10 percent to 20 percent in the penalty for early non-qualified HSA withdrawals ($1.3 billion);
    *A tax on companies that manufacture or import medical devices ($19.3 billion);
    *An increase in the floor of the medical expenses deduction from 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income to 10 percent, except for seniors, who will stay at 7.5 percent ($15.2 billion);
    *A mandate on companies with more than 50 employees to provide health coverage or pay a $750 penalty per employee for those who obtain coverage through the insurance exchange ($36 billion over 10 years) and a mandate on individuals to obtain coverage or pay a tax penalty.
    Dick Morris Is Right About A Liberal Democrat Secret Plan for ObamaCare
    Pelosi said, “We (Liberal Democrats) will go through the gate,” “If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we will parachute in. But we are going to get health care reform passed for the American people for their own…” (GOOD?)
    This is outrageous and exactly what Americans do not want. MAKE CALLS TO CONGRESS. We need your continued help more than ever as Socialized Health Care MUST STILL Be Stopped.
    Call your Senators and Representatives today, toll free numbers include 1-877-851-6437 and 1-866-220-0044, or call toll 1-202-225-3121 AND REGISTER YOUR OUTRAGE at Arrogant ObamaCare TAX Increase!

    CALL PRESIDENT OBAMA 202-456-1111 and 202-456-1414 expressing your outrage at incompetence in crippling and obstructing the “bipartisan healthcare reform summit”.
    DO NOT BE SILENCED – MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
    We need TENS OF THOUSANDS of faxes and PHONE CALLS and EMAILS delivered to ALL Congressmen right away!
    This is a fight for the very heart of America. We can WIN this fight! With Senate Republicans now forcing Democrats to “ping-pong” the Obamacare bill back and forth between the two Houses, we can capitalize on the divisions within the Democrat Party itself! If we can STOP Reid and Pelosi from getting enough votes in either House — that means THE BILL WOULD DIE!
    We CAN still win, by keeping the Democrats from getting the votes they need to pass Obamacare… but we can’t do it without YOUR help!
    TAKE ACTION: We don’t have much time before the liberal Democrat leaders in the House and Senate begin their backroom deal-making to work all of their deals and compromises, in hopes of getting enough votes to pass ObamaCare. We have to start NOW in letting ALL of these people who are supposed to be representing US in Washington, that we are NOT going to put up with this — and that they MUST LISTEN TO US and KILL THE BILL!
    We CANNOT let the radical liberals in Congress — and the White House — force this plan for socialized health care on the American people! Send a strong message to every single member of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, OPPOSING this outrageous plan.
    Email and call all your Democrats, Republicans, and Independents — EVERYONE in BOTH houses of Congress, DEMANDING that they REJECT this socialized health care plan NOW!
