Concerned Women for America has seen into America's future and produced 9 clever automated phone calls we should anticipate if Obama and Congress succeed in railroading nationalized healthcare.
For example, as CWA wrote when introducing the following call, "Under Obamacare, abortion providers like Planned Parenthood could be the official government 'community provider' for clinics at or near schools."...
And here's what to expect of Big Healthcare Brother, since under Obamacare, CWA writes, "you could face substantial fines and even punishment for violating the plan's mandatory insurance requirement."...

X- Don't take Minnow's bait. Sorry, couldn't resisit the pun :)
The fines are just one aspect of the bill that will be litigated after the legislation passes. The courts will have to decide if the feds, for the first time in our nation's history, can mandate every citizen to purchase a product. It's not like car insurance because your decision to purchase the vehicle was voluntary. A mandatory purchase without intent or ability to use the product is a different matter altogether.
This bill solves nothing related to misuse of the ER nor does it outlaw (so far as I can tell) free health care services available to the uninsured.Posted by: Fed Up at November 2, 2009 12:27 PM
this fine is necessary to stop the misuse of the ER.
The fine is essential to fund a massive entitlement program. You're naive if you believe that ER misuse consists solely in treating uninsured patients. It's a complex problem that may become worse if this legislation passes in its current form.
My apologies to the mods for taking the bait to derail the thread. I'm done now :)Posted by: Fed Up at November 2, 2009 1:00 PM
Those phone calls are disturbing. What would happen if a 14 year old girl got an abortion but there were complications? What if she DIED? What would the government do then?Posted by: LizFromNebraska at November 2, 2009 4:32 PM
Liz, consider also these underage girls getting abortions w/o parental knowledge. They are sitting ducks for predators to abuse them (like abortionists Ivan Nahimas & Lawrence Reich), knowing that in order to report the molestation, they'd have to admit to the abortion first. We know how devastating abortion is to the mental health and well-being of girls and women; at the very least a parent who KNEW about the abortion could be on the lookout for depression, chemical abuse, etc. Read Georgeanne's story at www.yeson73.net/content/view/33/53/Posted by: klynn73 at November 2, 2009 4:52 PM
Thank you for posting that link, klynn. I visited the website. The transcripts of the calls from the two parents whose underage daughters had abortions without their knowledge...heartbreaking. :(Posted by: Pamela at November 3, 2009 5:55 PM
