The socialists in Washington D.C. are getting desperate to force their socialized health care system on the American people.
In the past two months, they’ve watched poll numbers for health care “reform” and for President Obama start going down the tubes as more people realize what a raw deal government health care is.
A couple of weeks ago, we even saw President Obama go before congress and the cameras and lie to both the United States Congress and the American people. In fact, he didn’t just lie to us all: he called us liars as he lied to us. The president thinks we’re silly and ridiculous for not drinking his choice Koolaid.
But lately the socialists have decided to take the heavy-handed Marxism to a new level. They’ve decided to quash the free speech of private organizations that dare to disagree with them.
The general warning came after the Department of Health and Human Services launched a probe against the insurance giant Humana earlier this month after it sent out a mailing warning of the possible cuts.
“As we continue our research into this issue, we are instructing you to immediately discontinue all such mailings to beneficiaries and to remove any related materials directed to Medicare enrollees from your Web sites,” the HHS Centers for Medicare and Medicaid told health insurance companies in a notice Monday.
The bill currently under construction in the Senate Finance Committee includes a proposal to cut Medicare and Medicaid spending by about $500 billion over the next decade, including about $125 billion cut from Medicare Advantage plans.
The Humana mailer had told its members that, “if the proposed funding cut levels [in the current health care legislation] become law, millions of seniors and disabled individuals could lose many of the important benefits and services that make Medicare Advantage health plans so valuable.” The company encouraged seniors to contact their congressional representatives on the issue.
Even the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) confirms what the White House doesn’t want to get out, with CBO head Douglas Elmendorf telling the Senate this on Tuesday.
Nothing must be allowed to get in the way of the glorious revolution! It is, after all, for our own good.
Another truth the socialists desperately want to pretend doesn’t exist is that the American people are not about to give up our freedom with out a fight. This kind of ham-fisted despotism doesn’t fly in the USA.
