Obamacare will fundamentally change our country. It will force millions of Americans into poverty by changing full time employment into part time employment. Millions of Americans will loose their healthcare coverage because of increased costs. Companies will go bankrupt because of the weight of Obamacare and other government mandates.

The cost of insurance and the reduced benifits is Not acceptible. As is the fact that my mother is slowly being termintated due to the fact that her Medicine that the has been taking for several years is no longer being paid for by Medi-cal. seems that High doses of Moropine is the givin answer. This WILL kill her.
I beg of you to defund ObamaCare. it is NOT good for the people and the PEOPLE DON’T WANT IT!

In addition to above comments, I also believe Obamacare is a job killer, reducing jobs and hours for those will still have a job.

Mr Harkin, we are hardworking farmers who also have jobs in Des Moines. I work in a major hospital where there is tremendous termoil as staff take layoffs, paycuts and freezes on hiring. Soon, I’m sure my health insurance will be cut. Compromised patient care is the result. Please take your blinders off and help rebuild a better healthcare system. My colleagues and I experience Obama Care as a train wreck in progress.

PLEASE defund Obama care! I am not against reform to our system, but I am against Obama care — I think that it should be illegal for senators/representatives to be able to pass a large bill like this WITHOUT reading the whole thing and knowing exactly what is in it!!!! If they did not read it, then how can they tell us what is in it and what the costs will be…..that’s impossible!!!!!! They have lied from the beginning and continue to lie about how it will affect the “average Joe”, how much it will cost in the end, and etc. so why should we believe what they tell us about it …… unless they have truly read it. Something this important should NOT have been pushed through as fast as it was, especially with it being read!! PLEASE defund Obama care!! It will HURT the people more than it will help the people, especially financially!!!!

Nothing we have been told about Obamacare has been true. It’s just a means to an end for the government. We need true free market reform, not a takeover that we can’t pay for.

Folks, it is not Obamacare that costs so much, it is out of control CYA tests and procedures made necessary by runaway medical litigation. Whether it comes out of your left pocket or right pocket is immaterial.

Furthermore, the quality of care in the US is severely impacted by the distraction caused by physicians’ attention being turned away from patient well-being by the need for CYA procedures.

Why don’t we hear more about the real cause of out-of-control health care costs caused by excessive litigation? Here’s a hint: legislators are almost all lawyers.

I totally agree with defunding obamacare. it will bankrupt the people who fund everything. the doctors are against it which says a great deal and congress and our reps have exempted themselves which says a great deal more. if it is good enough for us people it should be good enough for our leaders.socialism has never worked, it is proven world wide and will not work here in America either.Vote as the people would have it instead of your own agenda for once.

I have sent and written to my Senators the following letter.
Please feel free to copy and send to your Senate Representatives.

Dear Senator,

The American People by Majority have stated that we do not want this Legislation, called obamacare, to be Law. This Legislation was forced on the American People by Democrat Legislators without knowing what they were passing. The President’s and Democrat Leadership’s claims about what the Bill would do for American’s have been proven to be lies. And what the Bill demonstrates it will do is kill jobs, socialize our Health Care system, force Doctors and Health Care professionals out of business, and give the Federal Government power and control over Health Care at a level that is beyond anything we are comfortable with.

I expect you as my Senate Representative to also OPPOSE ALL CLOTURE VOTES FOR H.J. RES 59 that are expectedly to be pushed by Majority Senate Leader Harry Reid and his Democratic Senate Colleges!

Our Government is by Majority Rule… and that does NOT mean by the majority that controls the Senate. It means by the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS! We stand with Ted Cruz and we are willing to see the Government shut down in order to prove to the elitist minds on Capitol Hill that they are not in control of the Government… WE ARE! We do not want the legislation or the Individual Mandate simply put on hold for one year… we want the Legislation repealed and a new Health Care program devised that has bi-partisan support and that truly addresses the problems of Health Care with market based solutions, NOT GOVERNMENT CONTROL! The Federal Government has become power mad and this President has lost the support of the People by demonstrating that he is not truly working for our interests. Neither is the Leadership of the Senate. You are ALL there to serve us… not the other way around! And WE DEMAND THAT YOU CEASE TO IGNORE US OR YOU WILL HEAR US LOUD AND CLEAR IN NOVEMBER!!

A Constitutional lawyer has read the entire health care bill. His findings:

A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed health care bill. Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish. This is stunning!

The Truth About the Health Care Bills
– Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200:
The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009.
I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, in direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However , that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
