I couldn’t say it any better, so I just highlighted the salient points.

A National Nightmare, Indeed

By David Limbaugh
November 24, 2009

In a Democratic fundraising speech in Iowa over the weekend, Vice President Joe Biden told party loyalists that opponents of the Obama administration’s agenda “should be worried about us, for we are their worst nightmare.” Duh.

Finally we can agree on something, Joe. Even the liberal New York Times reports that at the current level of federal spending, the annual interest on the national debt will exceed $700 billion by 2019 — compared with $202 billion this year. Some forecasters predict it will be much higher. This additional half-trillion dollars a year in interest is more than our current combined expenditures on education, energy, homeland security and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Oh, and the Times isn’t even factoring in the cap-and-trade nightmare you and Barack have in store for us, Joe — you know, that urgent legislation to catapult the nation back into Third World status based on hysteria generated by fraudulent science and corrupt zealots and politicians.

Nor is the Times including in its calculations the additional debt that would result from Obamacare.

Joe, when The New York Times is sounding the warnings over the exploding national debt, you and Barack insist not only on not reversing your disastrous course but also on making it worse. How can reasonable people assume anything other than that you are trying to run this nation into the ground financially?

Don’t dare keep telling us your hyper-ambitious spending is a necessary evil required to deliver us from a financial crisis you inherited. Whatever crisis we face is debt-related, purely and simply. Everything else is manageable. Yet you all are deliberately increasing our indebtedness as far as the eye can see, without the slightest pretense of scaling back in this millennium. In fact, you are laboring to establish further entitlements and institutional changes that would generate exponential burdens on our debt and would be enormously difficult for any responsible and financially sane successor to undo, much less reverse.

Adding insult to injury, you are spending this money not to improve (“stimulate”) the economy — which even the most politically and economically illiterate should now realize — but to restructure American society, dismantle our free enterprise system and impose in its place a command-control economy and political system — in which life’s decisions, including over our private health care, are dictated from Washington.

But while you and Barack are hoisting your wrecking ball, could you please spare us the pseudo-sanctimony and transparent populism in telling us that it will take “grit and determination” to outlast the “special interests” on Wall Street and the insurance industry to pass your destructive agenda?

You both know better. When you have to bribe Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., with a larcenous $300 million addition to your Senate bill (I know, you’re pretending it’s just Harry Reid’s bill) that’s specifically earmarked just for her stateat the expense of the rest of the states and the national interest — something smells to high heaven. You could at least have the decency to admit this provision to raise the bill’s cost by increasing Medicaid subsidies for “certain states recovering from a major disaster” is not even motivated to help Louisiana, but to buy Landrieu’s vote. And you want to talk to us, Joe, about the corruption of special interests?

Special interests, Joe? Is that how you describe 56 percent of the American people, who now oppose Obama’s plan? And that’s without even knowing the half of it. Or maybe you would describe them as dangerous protesters or domestic terrorists?

But, Joe, I do applaud you for your candor in telling your fawning supporters, “I can tell you with absolute certainty: (Barack’s) resolve has never waivered for one instant.”

Bull’s-eye, Joe. You and Barack believe you know better than the American people what is good for them, and you only care what they think to the extent that it makes your job more difficult when they oppose you.

But if you told the truth about your planthat it would cost dramatically more than you pretend (especially considering that the benefits wouldn’t begin to be paid until 2014 and that taxes would increase almost immediately); that the public option would subsume private care; that the federal government would ration care; that medical choice would be drastically reduced; that you are still trying to secure federal funding for abortion; that you intend to cover currently illegal immigrants; that after all your hype about promoting this bill to achieve universal coverage, millions would remain uninsured and penalized, to boot; that medical quality would be seriously reduced; and that overall costs would increase — your support for the bill would be in the single digits.

So keep chanting it, Joe; you are indeed a national nightmare.

  1. CRITICAL!! From jacksmith – Working Class

    My Fellow Americans and People Of The World

    A strong Government-run MEDICARE like Public Option is CRITICAL!!

    I have to tell you now that the H1N1 virus is a manmade WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION! and TERROR! It is a WEAPONIZED version of a flu virus. It has swept the planet infecting millions. And causing a global pandemic that has killed tens of thousands, and injured millions.

    The H1N1 virus is the product of the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! It was released in the U.S. in Texas in early January of this year, but not recognized until around April in California. The reason I know this is because when it came to America, it came to see me FIRST! How sweet…

    This was around the time the MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! assaulted the Whitehouse with all their devils deals to cripple and weaken YOUR! healthcare reform. Especially your right to have a single payer system like HR676 (Medicare For All) which most of you wanted.

    They don’t even want you to have your HUGE!!! compromise position of a strong government-run MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. To compete with their DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, MURDEROUS, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT PRODUCT (The single most deadly and dangerous product sold in America).

    They also wanted to take away your rights to have your government meet it’s responsibility to use it’s full power to regulate, negotiate, and control drug cost, healthcare cost and quality. Something every other civilized country in the developed World has done for it’s people. Their Greed! moral degeneracy and lack of patriotism knows no bounds.

    Many of you will remember that before we knew about H1N1. I posted a open message to the President and Congress warning them to be vigilant about their health, and cautious about any medical advice they received. As I said then “they will not hesitate to try and hurt you”.

    The U.S. and the World have been under a BIOLOGICAL TERROR ATTACK! for over a year now. It is CRITICAL that We The People Of The United States take away control of our healthcare system from the GREED DRIVEN MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!

    For our own National security, and the security of the world.

    A Strong, government-run, MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. Available to everyone on day one, with the full unfettered power of the federal government to regulate, negotiate, and control cost and quality. Would be the most workable way to deal with this global crisis at this time. Including patent suspensions as needed for national security or the greater good.

    As an American I invite the peoples of the World to help us fix our healthcare crisis. And bring pressure on our government to meet it’s responsibility to protect global security by controlling, and removing the corrupting influence of GREED and the PRIVATE FOR PROFIT motivations from healthcare in the U.S. and around the World.

    I call on the governments of the World and the global intelligence community to track down these MASS MURDERERS, and bring them to justice. CONNECT THE DOTS! And be vigilant that they don’t slip in another viral strain on you under the cloak of H1N1 sequestration.

    Further, the proposed patent protection on biologic’s must be stripped from the US bill. And greatly shorten/restricted, or abolished completely. This is a grave danger to humanity and global security.

    I think President Obama is doing the best he can at playing the disastrous deck of cards he inherited from the previous administration. And I think he is doing an excellent job. But the wolves and devils of the medical industrial complex! are trying to exploit, and take advantage of his good heart, and desperate desire to help suffering Americans. But we must be strong and insist that healthcare reform be done right for the American people. Or everyone loose’s.

    This is all I can say in a message post. I’ll try to find a way to tell you more later.

    God Bless You My Fellow Human Beings

    p.s. The so-called nominal H1N1 virus is designed in such a way as to make it more lethal to children and young adults. The medical community must be more vigilant of secondary bacterial infections in the young caused by H1N1. And remember, a viral infection is also a transfer of genetic code to you. Think about it, and be vigilant. 😦

  2. I generally try to avoid name calling, and I will make no exception here. But the OBSERVATIONS I am about to make about what you seem to be based upon your writings might be construed as name calling by the less astute among us.

    Some people, OK a lot of people, oh, alright, pretty much everybody calls me a right wing nut job. I wear that label as a badge of honor as I think conservatism (not republican-ism) is what made this country great, and is what will restore us to our former glory. Liberalism destroys the human condition. That being said, from reading your post it appears that you might be as far to the left as I am to the right. Many of your assertions mirror what I would find on the Communist Party USA website. You sound like the press director for Obama. Let’s debunk some of your points individually.

    • A strong Government-run MEDICARE like Public Option is CRITICAL!! – You’re kidding, right? Name me ONE government run program that has done what is was actually created to do, as well as we were told it would do it, and on or under budget. The government has already demonstrated that they can’t run ANYTHING more efficiently or effectively than the private sector. The only thing a public option is “critical” for is giving the government a way to take more control of over our lives.
    • H1N1 virus is a manmade WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION! – Not out of the realm of possibility, but that’s even a bit too tinfoil-hat-conspiracy for me.
    • H1N1 virus is the product of the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! – Attacking the “greedy” private sector. Modus operandi for liberals, socialists, and communists. Don’t forget the GREED of the left: the greed for POWER. Again, I won’t say that H1N1 being produced by the government or medical industry isn’t POSSIBLE, but it’s so far off the reservation that even a conspiracy theorist like me would say it’s so unlikely as to be only a laughable idea. You say the virus was released in Texas. You don’t seem to remember your own state-run media stories of where this virus actually came from. MEXICO. I find it a lot easier to believe H1N1 bred itself in the Petri dish of the Mexican cesspool than in a pharmaceutical laboratory. How did it get to the U.S.? IT WALKED! Or more accurately, thousands of infected Mexicans walked across the border carrying the virus.
    • MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! assaulted the Whitehouse with all their devils deals… – It was the pharma companies who were signing a deal with the devil. It was Obama who extorted $80 billion from them with promise of being able to reap big benefits from the health care “reform” bill, and not to be hit with big penalties. It was Obama, Pelosi, and Reid who broke the deal. That’s why the pharma companies did a 180 and started telling the truth about the deal. Only a slim majority ORIGINALLY wanted Medicare for All, but that was until they started finding out what was actually in the bill. It was the same crap that’s in the most recent versions. Taxes that start now, but benefits that don’t start for 4 years (cooking the books to lie about deficits). Reduced choice, quality, and availability of doctors, health care procedures, and medicines. Rationing. The government deciding who gets what health care. These are all the things that 61% of Americans now see as something they don’t want. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid keep changing the names of the various “options” in the bill(s) to fool the public, but we aren’t buying it. You can’t pick up a turd by the clean end.
    • …To compete with their DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, MURDEROUS, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT PRODUCT (The single most deadly and dangerous product sold in America). – Wow! You really are deluded, aren’t you? I challenge you to go ANYWHERE else in the world and find the quality of health care available in the U.S. YOU CAN’T DO IT! Don’t give me that crap about the uninsured not being able to get health care. IT IS A LAW that no hospital can turn away ANYONE from their emergency rooms. That’s why when I take my kid in with a broken arm, I wait for 2 hours while all the illegal aliens and deadbeats with the sniffles are being seen AT MY EXPENSE. This system is broken, but anyone who wants health care can get it. If the government goal was really to insure 100% of the citizens, they could do it a lot more cheaply than with a multi-trillion dollar freedom-grabbing redistribution of my money. For about $400 per month, a family of four can buy a pretty decent PRIVATE health insurance plan. That’s $4,800 per year. The government says that there are 40 million uninsured. Even if you said $400 per person instead of per family, the government could PRIVATELY insure all who they claim to be uninsured for $192 billion. That’s a darn sight less than the $2 to $8 trillion most expect the government takeover of health care to cost. So riddle me this, Jacksmith. Why the HUUUUUGE disconnect between Obama and the liberals STATED goal, and reality?
    • They also wanted to take away your rights to have your government meet it’s responsibility to use it’s full power to regulate, negotiate, and control drug cost, healthcare cost and quality. – Michael Moore would be proud. Please show me where the U.S. Constitution gives the government the right or responsibility to provide health care. You can’t. You are confusing RIGHTS with PRIVILEGES. A RIGHT is something given to you by God. A PRIVELEGE is something that can be taken away. In your zeal to have me pay for your health care, you forget the truth that a government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.
    • The U.S. and the World have been under a BIOLOGICAL TERROR ATTACK! for over a year now. It is CRITICAL that We The People Of The United States take away control of our healthcare system from the GREED DRIVEN MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! – It’s not the pharmaceutical industry who are the terrorists. Our government either sympathizes with, or is to PC and afraid to admit who the REAL terrorists attacking this country are. Who are the people who have carried out EVERY terrorist attack against this country with the exception of OKC? If you said muslims, move to the head of the class. If you said anything else, you’re either a recluse with your head in the sand, or an idiot.
    • As an American I invite the peoples of the World to help us fix our healthcare crisis. And bring pressure on our government to meet it’s responsibility to protect global security by controlling, and removing the corrupting influence of GREED and the PRIVATE FOR PROFIT motivations from healthcare in the U.S. and around the World. I call on the governments of the World and the global intelligence community to track down these MASS MURDERERS, and bring them to justice. CONNECT THE DOTS! And be vigilant that they don’t slip in another viral strain on you under the cloak of H1N1 sequestration. – This pretty much exposes you as a socialist/communist. I would hope that you are not serious, but I afraid that you really believe this crap. If we open ourselves up to the rest of the world as you suggest, do you HONESTLY think they would do anything other than pillage us? Your “new world order” and “global governance” would do nothing but destroy America without improving ANYONE’S situation. It is because we have been the most successful nation on earth that we have been able to generate enough excess to send trillions of dollars of aid all over the world. We have been the beacon of freedom and opportunity that the rest of the OPPRESSED world is flocking TO. I don’t see any of you in this country who are screaming about oppression trying to swim to Cuba, or trying to emigrate to Russia, China, or North Korea. If you think they are so much better than we are, I’ll take up a collection and buy you a plane ticket if you surrender your passport and renounce your American citizenship.
    • I think President Obama is doing the best he can at playing the disastrous deck of cards he inherited from the previous administration. And I think he is doing an excellent job. But the wolves and devils of the medical industrial complex! are trying to exploit, and take advantage of his good heart, and desperate desire to help suffering Americans. But we must be strong and insist that healthcare reform be done right for the American people. Or everyone loose’s. – Do you write the script for the TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States)? Because that’s the same old tired “it’s all Bush’s fault” line that nobody is buying anymore. As I’ve explained before, in the case of vaccines you can look back to Hillary Clinton and the house/senate that went along with her for creating the shortages we are now experiencing. I won’t pretend to judge a man’s heart, but all the empirical evidence show Chairman Maobama to be anything but pure of intention and heart. He has repeatedly been proven to lie at an “unprecedented” rate to get what he wants. Even when he isn’t lying, the words he says are frightening. What he has honestly said is his vision for America is diametrically opposed to the principles and values upon which this country were founded.

    If your vision and that of Mr. Obama were to be implemented, the only losers would be the American people. God help us if you prevail.

    I am praying for you and the rest of America to wake up to the REAL truth.
    John 1:12; Revelations 3:20
