EIGHT DECADES OF INSIGHTS: The Progressive Plan

InsightsFor the next few blogs I’m going to publish excerpts from my book, ISBN 978-1-941069-09-7 “INSIGHTS: Transforming America — Is this what we fought for?” This book is now out in paperback and on Kindle or Nook. I’ve kept the price low because I want this message to get to as many people as possible. Please pass these blogs on to your friends and contacts. For those of you who have read my book, you needn’t read again the same words, but please pass them on. I’ll respond to as many comments and questions as I can. If you’ve had difficulty understanding this president, reading “INSIGHTS” will help you understand Obama and explain what is happening to your family and friends, conservatives or not.

 

Seizing power and re-distributing wealth is the holy grail of progressivism and its followers will champion whatever “issue” they need in order to destroy the opposition.

For the progressives in the end, even election fraud is a legitimate means as long as the goal is the transformation of the existing society. Lying to the people, using the civil service, especially the IRS and Justice Department, to work for progressive goals is the right and even the moral course of action.

If you don’t have a crisis to frighten the people into accepting a progressive transformation of their nation, a crisis must be created. People who are unemployed, failing to support their families, seeing their savings vanish, losing trust in the government, believing they must take part in class warfare, losing hope for the future of their children and nation, will, in their fear and desperation, be willing to accept the false solutions of the progressives.

What is the progressive plan? Let’s start with The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. Here the plan is not to give the people better medical care. The real intent is to take control of seven percent of the American economy. Alinsky followers believe that if you control health care, you control the people. Insurance companies must become part of the government under control of the progressive elite.

People will lose their existing health care insurance and be forced to pay for “better” health care provided by Obamacare. The “better” health care insurance will be more expensive with much higher deductibles. The health care providers will not be able to cover the population with adequate insurance coverage. Millions will have no coverage. Others will be struggling to pay for health care. Out of the shambles of the Affordable Care Plan, America’s health care will be in chaos. The opposition, the Republican Party, has no answer or solution. This is perfect for the progressive leadership. Suddenly, the progressives put forward a single-payer plan or true socialized medicine as the only possible solution. With the choices seen as between chaos or a single-payer system where Obamacare covers everyone and higher taxes pay the bill, the people will vote for a single-payer system.

EIGHT DECADES OF INSIGHTS-88

HEALTH CARE CHANGE

I  just heard John Boehner, Speaker of the House, and President Obama comment on health care within the same hour. Not a pretty sight. Both need to do something else. We would all be better off. When queried about the Republican approach to health care, the Speaker referred to an obscure  (to most people) government website for the Republican approach to health care. He has been in government too long. What is wrong or hard about a clear statement of the Republican approach? I am a conservative voter and I could not tell anyone what the Republican position on health care is in any detail. The leadership of the Republican Party is sadly lacking in talking to the American people.

On the Progressive side, we have plenty of detail. Plus 10,000 pages and hundreds of executive regulations and changes to The Affordable Care Act. A fog of words, both written and spoken. Many spoken by a man who consistently lies to sell his radical change agenda. I don’t believe a word of what President Obama said in his press conference on November 14, 2013. His goal was clear, however, and that is to keep the Congress from passing any legislation on Obamacare by engaging in another unconditional executive decree. If Democrats and Republicans ever got together, they just might come up with  reasonable changes to health care that would benefit all Americans.

Since that probably won’t happen, as the Speaker seems to be comfortable with Obama doing his job, I’ll list the eight principles of health care that I think should guide fixing health care:

  • Help the people who do not have health care either because they can’t afford it or can’t qualify because of pre-existing conditions. After means testing, provide government subsidies to those who cannot purchase the coverage they need.
  • Do not include people who already have health care they have selected and like.
  • Allow insurance companies to sell their plans across state lines.
  • Pass tort reform legislation to limit the impact of  lawyer profits from questionable malpractice law suits.
  • Allow children to be covered on their parents’ health insurance plans until age 26.
  • Consider legislation to restore the doctor/patient relationship to control costs and improve patient control of their medical choices.
  • Allow policy holders to select what they want covered and the deductible they want.
  • People own their insurance coverage and it goes with them when changing employment or retiring.
  • Do not allow the executive departments of HHS and the IRS to be involved in the management of health care.

We have the best health care system in the world. Let’s fix only the things that are broken in a step-by-step approach.
