Carly Fiorina's Words Demolishes The Hazardous Obamacare

A big H/T goes to Bill Dupray at True/Slant for this wonderful revealing article into the hazardous bill known as Obamacare that will endanger every person's life. Please pass this along. Please follow Bill Dupray and his wondeful articles at True/Slant. He is a wonderful conservative over at True/Slant.
This is not just another, “I beat cancer” testimonial. This is a calm, eloquent, and utterly damning clip. It perfectly captures the essence of the problem with the Democrats’ health care plan. Fiorina is not a partisan here. She doesn’t mention either political party by name. She also doesn’t mention that she’s a Republican or that she is a candidate for Senate in California. She’s just some woman named Carly Fiorina.



She talks about the recent government panel’s mammogram recommendations and how the panel was instructed to focus on treatment and costs in reaching its conclusions.


Fiorina asks whether, under the bills being debated in Congress, “Will a bureaucrat determine whether my life is not worth saving?” And they way she presents the question, you wonder if, in fact, the Democrats’ plan really is the whole ball-game for deciding for yourself what kind of treatment you need.

She wonders whether “the federal government will at first suggest, and then mandate, new standards for prevention and treatment. Do we really want government bureaucrats rather than doctors dictating how we prevent and treat something like breast cancer?”

In response to the public blowback from the limited mammogram panel recommendation, Kathleen Sebilius, the HHS Secretary, said the panel doesn’t set federal policy. Fiorina suggests that the real question is whether they would set policy.

It would.

The Senate bill empowers this very task force with influencing future coverage and preventive care. Section 4105 explicitly authorizes the Secretary to deny payment for preventive services the task force recommends against.

She’s right. Under ObamaCare, she would probably be dead.

If this bill passes, we will be back to the situation where only the rich will be able to afford excellent care. And they may have to leave the country to get it. I'm sure there will be a thriving black market for healthcare. Always somebody will want to make a buck. Not to mention the American doctors who will be looking to be paid what they are worth.

Great post. Many in the government feel they need to help us poor souls out. Those on the progressive side are so use to having voters who are so dumb to continually vote for them they think all Americans are in need of their help.

Wonderful post, Teresa. The video is powerful in it's message. Thank you for posting.
Ms. Fiorina's story is almost like my own. A clear mammogram, but found the lump myself...at 48. Obamacare is going to be a death knoll for some people...it must be stopped.

Carly may have a story to tell, but she is personally responsible for ruining thousands of careers at HP and Lucent through her incompetent and reckless actions. She has been called one of the WORST CEO's of all time.

Support Chuck Devore - a true conservative!

Thanks for the kind words and the link Teresa. The libs really showed their true venom over on True/Slant, with many of them playing the class warfare card that says that if you have a lot of money, you are disqualified from having a political opinion. I guess if you have cancer and think that a government program will make things worse for everybody, you just have to shut up and let all the rich liberals do all the talking. Funny how they never seem to have a problem when George Soros speaks.

Teresa said...

OPie,
You are right. Only the rich will be able to afford health care if this bill passes.

Teresa said...

Ron,
Your right. Progressives want everyone to think of themselves as victims. You can be taken advantage of much easier if you consider yourself a victim.

Teresa said...

Anon,
Prove it.

Teresa said...

The Conservative Lady,
This is a great message. I so happy that you found your lump. It is so important that a woman knows how to check herself for lumps in her breast. Breast Cancer is very tough disease, but breakthroughs have been made.

Teresa said...

Bill,
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I really enjoy reading your posts. Yes. The libs did show their true venom over there. I tried to give a reasonable solution to our health care access and costs problem. Have a great day.

One thing few people talk about in relations to this bill: It will kill the advancement of medicine in this country.

My wife was reading a story to me about a woman in Wisconsin who had a heart attack and doctors used a technique called hydrotherapy, where they brought her body temperature down to stop the damage that was occurring in her cardiovascular system. It saved her life.

Under Obamacare, you won't have any such techniques. They'll be deemed too expensive, and the patients, too risky for future health problems, will then be deemed expendable.

This bill will throw us back to stone ages. Another fine mess, brought to you by socialists.

If this Bill passes, we might as all start buying our burial plots early, before the steep rise in prices in those too. Thanks for posting this Teresa, and your informative video. There is so much junk coming at us, it's hard to keep up. That is all part of their evil plan, too! If you want a laugh, check out some of my video's. I needed some entertainment.
Hope your weekend is wonderful....I'm getting sad mine is drawing to an end, 'cause you know what that means, Monday...ewwww, the horror. Almost as bad as the obamanation of our freedoms.

Ron Russell said...

Amusing Bunni, it is difficult to keep up with all that coming out of Washington and trying to separate fact from fiction is a near impossibility. I'm starting to believe little I read and only half of what I see.

what a great find..watching now!

Joe said...

Thank you for this.

It is so indicative of what ObamaCare will cost us: lives, lives and more lives.

Teresa said...

Snarky,
Your right. Innovation and new technology with regards to health care will go straight out the window.

Teresa said...

Amusing Bunni,
You are correct. Obamacare is evil. Our life expectancy will be decreased and yes, we will have to but burial plots earlier than we would today.

Teresa said...

WomanHonorThyself,
Obamacare is a danger to our livelihood.

Teresa said...

Joe,
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Yes, obamcare will cost many, many lives.
