Americans unlawfully being coerced into paying for Obama’s $950 billion health care protection racket.Corruption, U.S., World news Monday, April 2nd, 2012
A protection racket is an extortion scheme whereby an organized criminal group (the US government) or individual (Barack Obama) coerces a victim (the United States people) to pay money, for protection services (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). Racketeers coerce their victims into buying “protection” (health care insurance) by demonstrating what will happen if they don’t—arrests, fines, property seizures and/or jail time. In most cases, the racketeers do not actually protect their client from anything but the racketeers themselves, and their “protection” is merely extortion.
On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the unconstitutional Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The Obama Care bill is an unlawful attempt to force all Americans into buying “protection” insurance in exchange for health care. It is just another scheme to rob the American people. Obama’s Health Care Scam Bill is unnecessary. The federal government already funds health care centers throughout the United States. Individual states also already funds health care. They have been doing this since the formation of the Republic we know as the United States of America. If the US federal government is already, and has already been funding health care in every state of the United States then logically the United States already has a universal health care system. After all universal means – “including or covering all or a whole collectively or distributively without limit or exception; especially : available equitably to all members of a society”.
Federally and State funded health centers already exists across the United States. These centers already care for you, even if you have no health insurance. You pay what you can afford, based on your income. These federally funded health centers provide:
- checkups when you’re well
- treatment when you’re sick
- complete care when you’re pregnant
- immunizations and checkups for your children
- dental care and prescription drugs for your family
- mental health and substance abuse care if you need it
These federally and state funded health centers are in most US cities and many rural areas. So if a system that cares for the American people is already in place why force Americans to buy something they all receive.
If the US government is so concerned about the health of the American population why not spend just a fraction of the $950 Billion (the cost of Obama’s Affordable Care Act) and open up “Free Clinics” across the United States. Free Clinics are more in line with the spirit of the United States Supreme law – the Constitution of the United States.
A free clinic is a medical facility offering community health care on a free or very low-cost basis. Care is generally provided in these clinics to persons who have lower or limited income and no health insurance, including persons who are not eligible for US Medicaid or Medicare programs. In the US, free clinics already provide care for acute, non-emergent conditions. Many also provide a full range of primary care (including preventive care) and care for chronic conditions. Some free clinics include licensed pharmacies and dental services.
Free clinics today are defined by the US National Association of Free Clinics as “private, non-profit, community based organizations that provide medical, dental, pharmaceutical and/or mental health services at little or no cost to low-income, uninsured and under insured people. They accomplish this through the use of volunteer health professionals and community volunteers, along with partnerships with other health providers.” Some free clinics rival local government health departments in size and scope of service with multi-million dollar budgets, specialized clinics and numerous locations.
The modern notion of a free clinic began in the 1960s in San Francisco when Dr. David Smith founded the Haight Ashbury Free Clinics in 1967. Since then free clinics quickly spread to other Californian cities and the rest of the United States. In 1972 a meeting was held at the Shoreham Hotel in Washington DC where clinic staff from around the country gathered and listened to speakers including Dr. Smith. At this meeting the slogan “Health Care is a Right Not a Privilege” emerged as a theme. Obama’s unAffordable $950 billion Careless Act aims to take away that right.
Here is just one example of how “the people” of the United States are able to get the health care they need without the $trillion price tag.
http://shepherdsclinic.org/ … a unique non-profit organization providing quality, comprehensive health care to Baltimore’s uninsured… helping people who are unable to afford commercial health insurance, yet do not qualify for government assistance. They opened their doors in 1991 to serve the health care needs of Baltimore’s uninsured.
The uninsured already receive the care they need. They don’t need Obama’s $950 billion insurance scam. They need more free clinics.
Free clinics operate at a fraction of the cost of traditional “for profit” medical facilities. Free clinics are the unsung heroes of “the people”. They help people who have nowhere else to turn. These beacons of hope across the United State already serve tens of thousands of uninsured citizens every month. They keep people out of hospital emergency rooms, providing quality health care at a fraction of the cost.
