From the Columbus Dispatch: ‘In a conference call with reporters, House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-West Chester (Ohio), assailed the House Democratic version of the health-care bill as a “1.6 trillion monstrosity. The Democratic takeover (of health care) is going to diminish quality and, I think, reduce access to care. It’s going to lead to rationing and, I believe, denial of care.” Boehner said he was “not at all surprised” that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that he will postpone a Senate floor debate on health care until September.’
Time is a good thing. This ObamaCare debacle needs to be reined in. Obama is under the impression he is helping Ohioans with this bit of legislation. All Obama is doing is cleaning up a mess he created when he was elected. If he hadn’t shuttered and shut down plant after plant, factory after factory with his ‘stimulus’, Ohioans wouldn’t be in the position they are in.
This Ohioan says NO.
“According to statistics released by the White House, 11 percent of people in Ohio are uninsured and the percentage of Ohioans with employer coverage has declined from 71 percent to 65 percent between 2000 and 2007. Moreover, 20 percent of middle-income Ohio families spend more than 10 percent of their income on health care, and 12 percent of people in Ohio report not visiting a doctor due to high costs.”
I don’t know where the ‘White House’ gets their info from, but this was not as much of an issue when General Motors was still in business as General Motors. And it’s not just what Obama did to GM particularly, it’s all the little guys that went with it; design shops, tool and die shops, parts makers, controls makers, even down to the guy that makes the tires to the guy that sells the cars. If you haven’t noticed lately, new car sales are down by HALF. Ohioans counted on the car business, both manufacturing and selling, to put food on the table for nearly as many years as Obama has been alive. I was one of them. The car business made cities out of towns. My job in the car business is now history, thanks to Obama shuttering dealerships.
Obama and his posse of idiot democrats has made what he is trying to fix in Ohio – a lousy economy with little to no healthcare or access to it. Even the guy that drives the big vans to pick up people that have no transportation and is in critical out-patient care has been axed…not enough money to pay him, either.
And when Obama makes small businesses pay for this 1 trillion dollar healthcare plan, small businesses won’t be small anymore. They’ll be nonexistent. Then who’ll pay for it? Every last one of us.
Obama – hear this – the swing state of OHIO is looking redder and leaning more to the right every day. We don’t want your ‘help’ anymore. Pro-life? In ObamaLand? All of our lives here in Ohio are at stake with the current administration. He wants to kill our unborn children, our elderly and whoever else stands a chance at having a life. All he’s doing is erasing people that WON’T VOTE FOR HIM IN 2012. We have major players in Washington that are Ohioans – and we’re done playin’.
