I just got an email from David Axelrod at the White House

I just got en email from David Axelrod, at the White House.  It seems that some people don’t believe some of the things that the Obama administration would like us to believe. To wit:

  • CEA Chair Christina Romer details how health insurance reform will impact small businesses.
  • Domestic Policy Council Director Melody Barnes tackles a nasty rumor about euthanasia and clearly describes how reform helps families.
  • Matt Flavin, the White House’s Director of Veterans and Wounded Warrior Policy, clears the air about Veteran’s benefits.
  • Kavita Patel, M.D., a doctor serving in the White House’s Office of Public Engagement, explains that health care rationing is happening right now and how reform gives control back to patients and doctors.
  • Bob Kocher, M.D., a doctor serving on the National Economic Council, debunks the myth that health insurance reform will be financed by cutting Medicare benefits.

Christina Romer fails to mention that the new health bill will make small businesses pay for a program that they do not have the money to afford. In fact, small business will probably be the group most most negatively affected by the health bill … at least financially.

Melody Barnes asks us to assume that the government will act honorably to preserve and protect life at all stages, when the government already fails (miserably and intentionally) to do so, now. 

Matt Flavin has the audacity to speak about veteran’s benefits, while the government has been rationing care, denying necessary procedures, and making veterans wait, wait, and wait some more, while lobbying to make veterans PAY for their benefits.

Kavita Patel, M.D.does indeed explain that health care rationing is occurring right now. Unfortunately, the good doctor fails miserably to give us any hope that things won’t get much, much worse under a government program … especially in light of the existing massive financial problems with Medicare and Social Security that have as yet never been either addressed or resolved.

Bob Kocher, M.D.  does a  nice job explaining why Medicare benefit cuts will not be used to finance the new health plan, but fails to mention that EVERY tax payer will be forced to pay much, much more, to cover the cost.   

David, please ask President Obama to give us a good bill, instead of propaganda!
