OBAMACARE’S DEFINING MOMENT: IT’S DO OR DIE (LITERALLY)

By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann on March 3, 2010

On a Sunday talk show this past weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked if she had the votes to pass Obama’s health care bill. Her answer was a one-word “yes.”

With that one word – if it stands – she will seal the fate of America’s health care system.

We must not let her prediction become reality.

Obama’s bill will easily pass the Senate. It is only in the House that we have a chance to prevail.

This week the League of American Voters has raised close to $200,000 and spent all of it – plus about $50,000 left over from other appeals – to run ads in twelve Congressional districts now represented by vulnerable Democrats who voted for Obama’s health care bill when it first passed the House this past autumn.

Pelosi got 220 votes them (215 voted no) so she has no margin for error. She needs all twelve of these Democrats to walk the plank and vote yes again!

One week’s worth of media, however, won’t be enough to bring these Democrats to our side. We need another $250,000 to run the ads a second week.

CLICK HERE to see a sample ad.

The ad says (paraphrased):

“Congressman Mike Arcuri voted for Obama’s health care proposals. For a $500 billion cut in Medicare. For rationing of health care. For a surcharge on income taxes. Now Pelosi and Obama want Arcuri to be the swing vote in passing his program again. Please call Mike Arcuri and ask him to vote no to save our health care.”

The phone numbers for the Congressman remain on the screen all during the ad.

We already have reports of the members’ phones being jammed with callers.

We need to keep up the pressure. We can’t let these votes stand. If Obamacare passes if will provide:

  • A $500 billion cut in Medicare
  • 30 million new patients with no new doctors
  • Health care rationing
  • Protocols of care to deny costly treatments based on how many “Quality Adjusted Life Years” remain
  • Require the uninsured to pay $8500 to buy policies
  • Fine them 2.5% of their income if they don’t
  • And send them to jail if they don’t pay
  • Tax medical devices like pacemakers and automated wheelchairs
  • Force up premiums for all Americans by $2,000 a year
  • Add $500 billion to the federal deficit (by 2024)
  • Raise income taxes 2.5%
  • Raise capital gains taxes 2.5%
  • Cut reimbursement to doctors who order too many tests for patients

Please give us the tools to stop this bill.

This is the last ditch!

Thank you!!!
