Obama 's Hope and Change campaign promise has been a stunning success. He has given hope to the millions who live off the taxpayer promising them more Obamabucks than they ever dreamed. He has changed the mood of the taxpayer from 'Taxed Enough Already' to 'Tamed Establishment Apathy'. With the unconstitutional passage of Obamacare, We the People stood up and cried: "Taxed Enough Already", "You can keep your hope, and I will keep my Change" and "Hands of my Healthcare". It is now two years later and not only have many gone silent, some who I believed were on the side of liberty are actively working against liberty and free market reforms.

Joined by a large group of enthusiastic supporters at her home in Dearborn, Karen Jacobsen announced her campaign for Michigan's new 12th Congressional District against John Dingell.
Visit Mrs. Jacobsen's campaign website here.
To be exact, for Socialized Medicine to "control the people" it legislatively took the Dingell Dynasty from 1943 to March 23, 2010 to be accomplished.
Remember 2010 folks, John and Debbie Dingell directly profited from the Auto Bailout...

It prolly won't be all that far down the road I'll be able to say those very words if America continues on the path of following Jolly 'ol England's lead with our health care. Just two days ago it was reported that their cash strapped National Health Services has proposed vast improvements to expedite their 18 week treatment process figures.
Smokers and overweight patients in need of major operations could be thrown off hospital waiting lists under "desperate" cost-cutting plans.
Oh? I already know that smokers are eeevil, at least that's what the drones tell me, but, what's the skinny on who's considered fat?

Consumer driven health care isn't only better for your health, it's better for your pocketbook, too. That was the message delivered by a coalition of doctors and free market advocates who Wednesday convened in Grand Rapids a roundtable discussion about "the Future of Health care in America." The event was sponsored by Consumers for Health Care Choices, the Heartland Institute, Americans for Prosperity and the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.
According to Dr. Mark O'Brien, the status quo represents a true "us versus them" battle pitting responsible doctors and their patients against "big business, big government, big hospitals, big insurance companies and the big media."
Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Health Reimbursement Arrangements give health care consumers more control over how much is spent on their health care and how it is provided. That is in stark contrast with the current system where insurance companies and government providers often make the calls.
Medicare's current unfunded liability stands at $38 trillion, ore more than $335,000 per American household. More frightening, the Heartland Institute reports it is anticipated that Medicare will consume half the federal budget by the year 2035. Individual and corporate income tax rates would have to rise by 90 percent to finance projected Medicare costs through 2050.
The biggest reason? Neither the consumer nor the supplier pay any attention to the price.
