White House Asks You to Create Your Own Video on Health Insurance

Have you seen this one; I saw it late  Thursday, Sept. 3rd?  Could it be that if the White House is resorting to using various State Democratic Party email lists, THEY ARE IN TROUBLE? 

The underlying message of all this, is that we want you to use the internet ONLY if your message matches mine.  Hey, but that’s not fascist.  No, that’s the Chicago model of REAL MOB POLITICS, the OLD POLITICAL BOSS STYLE or simply – THUGS!  And in Obamaland that’s “a good thing” for Obama and his minions, NOT YOU.  It’s the daily eroding away of my RIGHT TO DISSENT that makes me so angry.  But remember, he got into this office by proclaiming “I did not vote for the war.”  So he gets into his elected office by campaigning on the sham of dissent (he wasn’t even in the Senate to vote in 2001 and 2002; wasn’t elected until 2004 and in office until January 2005) and NOW we hear claims WE ARE UNAMERICAN AND ARE NOT TO DISSENT – Him!  Remember, some threatened riots if Obama was not elected?  Why are you still taking this sitting down?

Create your own video.  You can even turn a PowerPoint Presentation into a movie with music and voiceovers.  It’s easy.  Try it and send us your video.  We will try and post them here or at least a link.

Don’t take this sitting down – get out your cameras and imaginations – LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD CLEARLY!

 Dear fellow Democrat, 

 Inaction on health insurance reform is not an option – except to the big insurance companies that     are raking in obscene profits while denying care to millions who work for a living. Every day, they    price more out of the system or deny them coverage because of a pre-existing condition. But reform isn’t only  about the people who don’t have insurance – it’s about anyone who’s ever worried about losing their coverage if  they become sick, lose their job or change their job.

 While the status quo is unsustainable, those opposing reform are doing nothing but helping corrupt insurance  companies protect enormous profits gained by charging sky-high premiums and denying coverage whenever they can get away with it. They are out there using fear tactics, getting everyday people to carry their dirty water for them by telling lies about insurance reform.  

Before you fall out of your chair from all the above spin and more, consider the insurance reform that has been proposed does little to insure better coverage other than mandating an end to pre-existing conditions.  There is little if any cost containment.  They are afraid to allow competition across state lines that would result in substantially lower premiums because of the state- to-state  disparity regarding mandates to cover (what the insurer cannot exclude) and mandates to offer (what the insurer  may choose to include).  Check it out – one state may make it a requirement to cover infertility treatment, while another claims it is experimental and denies any and all coverage. THIS IS NOT REFORM; this is a MERE MANIPULATION OF THE CURRENT STATUS and A SELL-OUT to BIG PHARMA, the MEGA HOSPITAL CORPORATIONS AND THE INSURERS!

Vice President Joe Biden has created a video, addressing the biggest health care lie of all: that our  health insurance system works just fine and Americans don’t care about reform. The White House invites you to help the Vice President debunk this myth by responding with your own YouTube video on why reform matters to you.

OPEN YOUR EARS DEMOCRATS!  WE KNOW IT DOESN’T WORK FINE … BUT YOUR PLAN IS LOUSY.  GO BACK AND START ALL OVER.  GET IT RIGHT.  WE HAVE SEEN DRIVE THRU MASTECTOMIES AND THE LIKE.  WE DON’T NEED “DRIVE-THRU, FAST PASSING LEGISLATION”.  We have had ENOUGH OF YOUR GAS!

DO THE HARD WORK YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO!  Know your state’s levels of insurance coverage, read the bill, figure out how this bill impacts your constituents, and work toward A BETTER SOLUTION than what is currently drafted!

 If you need some help getting started, the White House also has a new online quiz – to help set the record straight on what’s in reform for someone like you:           http://www.whitehouse.gov/realitycheck/quiz

   Your fellow Democrat,

   Chairman of Your State Democratic Party

  1. You know, I suspect Democrats (like me) would be a lot more willing to slow down and negotiate and try to find a way to get bipartisan reform passed if we believed that the GOP really wanted to get anything done at all. Instead, it feels like the real intent is to see that reform simply fails – because:

    — Obama will take political damage if reform fails, and

    — The private insurance industry really does not reform to happen at all and they are funding the protests….

    I am actually here in good faith looking for middle ground. We seem to agree that reform is necessary. I have relatively few things I want to see come out of reform – I discuss them in a blog post linked below. What would you like to see come out of reform?

  3. I’m happy for Joe. Sounds like they have him doing something constructive! They seem to have kept him out of the spotlight lately, for reasons that are not quite clear.

    As for this fiasco of a Healthcare proposal, give it up! The American people are protesting this atrocious proposal, in no uncertain terms! Open your ears and listen to the People!

    Scrap it and go back to the drawing board. Tort Reform, Ability to purchase healthcare insurance over statelines, Coverage of pre-existing conditions etc…We don’t need the big overhaul, fix only what needs fixing!

    Government has ruined government sponsored and government controlled programs like the Postal Service, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and a never-ending list of programs that have costed the American people, dearly!

    Always SPENDING the American People’s hard earned money, because they CAN!!!

    And by all means make videos laying the blame on everyone else and refusing as a government to accept the full responsibility for your actions and inactions!

    By the way, how do we know if this is nothing but a “hoax”, between the government and Big Business?

    The word “Collusion” keeps us all, up at night!

    Encarta Dictionary describes the meaning of “Collusion” as secret cooperation between people (government) and (Big Business) in order to do something either illegal or underhanded.

    Scrutinize everything that comes out of the Whitehouse and Congress and the connections with Big Business (Lobbyist and Special Interest)!

    The unsuspecting American People have been “sucker punched” one too many times by government and Big Business over the years!

    BEWARE! If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

    Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!

  5. Not In This Lifetime!

    I fear for your mental health

  6. I’m not sending the WH a thing!!

  7. i wouldnt go on the WH site for a damn thing!! skeiv-vozs!

  8. Thank you, I have been waiting for a reply for the other side of the fence!

    This proves all of my points! “Let the truths set us free”! Finally, confirmation that we have hit “pay dirt” from the otherside!

    Needless to say, the far left is escalating their challenges!

    I hope that you are not under the impression that we have not noticed your “one liners” of name calling and haven’t we been a “busy little beaver” throughout your postings!

    The “Majority” of the American People protesting in this Country, will have their “Say” in November of 2010 and sweep this administration and the rest of congress who have conspired against the People in 2012!

    Does that sound “Lucid” enough for you?

    By all means take whatever knowledge that you have learned from The Majority United and RIDS right back to those who are really now, in the “minority”!
    There is always a slim possibility that you may all learn something about the American People who, are no longer putting up with the “Rhetoric” coming out of the Whitehouse and Congress!

    In the end whether you like or not the “Majority” will have their “day in the court of opinions”, through our VOTES!!!!!!!!

    I hope that you are not under the impression that we have not noticed your one liners of name calling and haven’t we been a “busy little beaver” throughout your postings!

  9. NITL – I wouldn’t count your 2010 and 2012 chickens just yet…

    Here is an interesting post on the implication of polls – yes – it has a leftward slant – but the analysis here is always very insightful.

    http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/08/50-percent-is-not-magic-number.html

    Note for example that though Obama’s ratings have slipped he is still well ahead of the Republicans. We (Democrats) will lose some seats in 2010 – the party in power always does – but I don’t expect anything dire.

    I also expect we may see a tuen in the health care debate very soon here…

  10. NITL,

    “Government has ruined government sponsored and government controlled programs like the Postal Service, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and a never-ending list of programs that have costed the American people, dearly!”

    Hmm, who thinks like that. Cough Republican Cough.

    • Again with the one line comment!

      I respect Hippieprof and his opinions and his debates, you can really learn something from him!

  11. HProf,

    Polls are what polls are, a gage of the “supposed human behavior”. I find them interesting but I stopped listening to their predictions good or bad, favorable or unfavorable, a longtime ago!

    Whether you are of one party or the other, more human contact needs to occur. This is the reason why Tea Parties and Townhall Meetings have become a way for the American People to voice their concerns.

    Our politicians are making a big mistake, when they brush off the people’s concerns as “wack jobs” , “terrorist” etc…. I call these so-called politicians for the people as being “disingenuous” and so “out of touch” with their own constituents!

    I have no affiliation to either party and I am but one of a growing party of Independents, who are coming into their own.

    Since the primaries and the election and the entrance of this administration, many out there have switched their alliance from the two party system. We all know this to be a fact.

    As Independents, we are all in a holding pattern, watching all of the events that are taking place and I have to tell you , that we are not happy, right along with the disenfrachised constituents of this two party system!

    And I do not need to tell any Democrat or Republican that without these growing numbers of Independents, that they along with the rest will most definitely make the difference for any Party.

    The present administration will attest to what I am saying.

    Yes, we may see the end to the healthcare debate but, the outcome of all of our elected offficials will be the same!

    Always remember that laws and bills can always be repealed with a new administration and a new congress! This at present is how our governmental system works.

  12. NITL,

    I am happy you think you feel you can learn something from my posts – my entire point in coming here is to get some rational debate going and get away from the name calling. I think we all have something to learn from each other.

    This having been said, when you say things like “The “Majority” of the American People protesting in this Country, will have their “Say” in November of 2010 and sweep this administration and the rest of congress who have conspired against the People in 2012!” – you sound a bit more like a Republican than an independent – perhaps a right-leaning independent?

    You do seem concerned about collusion and the heavy hand of big business. I share your concern – but I think that big business – especially the private insurance industry – is actively working AGAINST health care reform. Why? Because they have huge profits under the current near-monopolistic system.

  13. If I may- Republicans like Independents want reform – no one want Ins co’s to drive people into bankrupcy – who wants that to happen? Do you think all republicans for example want that? Don’t be silly – no one wants that.

    We Ind. also want an end to both rep and dem as they have now become- that is why on this blog you find RIDsNow- most of us here were Dems not Repubs.
    We do have some republicans with us now and proud of it – just as some of us were L centists to begin with some were R centrists ,

    If you are happy with how the dems turned out by all means stay there – but we are not – we are for the most part Constitutionalists. We feel the Liberals / DNC left us. And we do not want to debate that at all- we know how we feel- there is nothing to discuss on that !

    The Dems or so called Progressives seems to have forgotten our Constitution – we have not and it appears the Repubs have also forgotten it in favor of big business. So as for this group – we are RIDsNow

    As for the people from the parties – it appears the Liberals from the dem party have just become too damned liberal for most of us and in order to sustain love of country democracy and constitution – we have had to become a bit more conservative – perhaps centrist is a better term but to liberals we appear conservative.

    Frankly that is only to those who have swung too far left! By all means to those who are very far right – we are not conservative in their eyes believe me.

    I hope I shed some light on the position of this group from my perspective that is . Anyone can correct me if I err.

  14. Freemenow….

    Actually, to tell you the truth, I once considered myself to be an Independent – and in fact only made the switch over to calling myself a Democrat during the last eight years.

    The process for me is basically what you describe above – only in reverse. It seemed to me that Republicans and conservatives have all shifted too far right for me. My views haven’t changed a lot – but it seems like the center has shifted rightwards.

    My reason for coming here – and my reason for blogging at all – is to encourage rational discussion. It seems like this is one blog where I may be able to find it – and you folks are always welcome on my blog as well.

    If we don’t talk rationally – if we keep screaming at each other – I really fear we are headed for a major decline as a nation. (that actually was my blog topic for today).

    Anyway, thanks for the conversation….

    — hippieprof

    BTW – I would love to take you up on that “forgotten the constitution” comment some time…. but tonight it is too late.
