The Final Six Reasons? Not To Vote For Obama (Last part of a three-part series)
Here is the final installment of the reasons to vote against Barack Obama:
* Mr. Obama's irrationality pervades his approach to most issues. It is not just his idea of raising taxes even knowing it will cut government revenue, job growth, and economic vitality. It is not just announcing his Iraq/Afghanistan plans first, and fact-finding and going there second.
Consider some of his other proposals. Let's start with his proposals for socialized medicine, and giving everyone the same coverage that members of Congress now get. His plan would include coverage for 10 million illegal immigrants, 15 million people who are eligible for Medicaid but don't apply, and 15 million adults whose children are eligible for free insurance.
He has repeated many times his plan covers 47 million uninsured, and the Congressional Budget Office confirms that figure includes the illegals. His plan would so flood the system there would have to be unacceptable delays in giving treatment and outright rationing of treatment. Dick Morris, Bill Clinton's former political guru, says it would mean illegal aliens would probably be getting care that would be denied to senior citizens.
For more on this, see Mr. Morris and Eileen McGann, Fleeced, page 31. But if you have any doubts about whether an Obama-Hillary socialized medicine scheme would wreck our healthcare system consider one fact.
We're now going broke with a Medicare system we haven't figured out to bring under control and pay for. Obama-Hillary care would multiply that problem by about four or five times. That's not to mention Social Security and other entitlements.
* Here's another Obama excursion into irrationality. He would grant citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants, as soon as the children had lived in the U.S. for five years, regardless of the illegal entry.
And once they attain legal status, he would grant them access to lower in-state tuition in colleges and universities. They would get that along with free health insurance from the U.S. government as part of his socialized medicine system.
So he is intent on setting up every incentive to continue the flood of illegal immigration and to accelerate the federal deficit.
