They said it wouldn’t happen

ObamacareRemember all those people (and Republican legislators!) who said the Coordinated Care Organizations weren’t socialized medicine and it wasn’t Obamacare…?

Well, while most people were and are rightfully watching gun control bills, along comes HB2922 — which sure looks like it’s bringing socialized medicine to Oregon.

Yep. Here it is, HB2922, the “Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Plan.” Exactly what they said wouldn’t happen.

Take a listen: I Spy Minute for Tues March 12, 2013. Or read the transcript below.

And if you’re in Salem on Thursday, March 14, Mark will be speaking at the Capitol City Republican Women’s Luncheon. See www.ispyradio.com for more details and directions.

If you’ve listened to the I Spy Radio Show, you know that we’ve been highly critical of the CCOs, coordinated care organizations. These are Obamacare.

Except those that supported the CCOs — including 23 of 30 house republicans, said it’s not socialized medicine.

While people have been rightly focused on gun control bills, along comes HB2922 which creates the “Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Plan.”

This provides comprehensive health care coverage to all individuals residing — or working — in Oregon.

Socialized medicine. Exactly what the supporters of the CCOs said wasn’t going to happen.

This Thursday, I’ll be speaking at the Capital City Republican Women’s luncheon at the Scottish Rite center on South Commercial from noon to 1.

I’ll be speaking on Health care, the CCOs and how they are slipping in to schools— giving kids access to things like emergency contraceptives and “mental health care” without parents knowledge or consent. And of course HB2922.

For the I Spy Minute, I’m Mark Anderson.

    Thank you, Mark. We can count on you for the whole story no one else is willing to tell.

    My friend has been tracking CCO’s and found that Kitz went to D.C. and discussed this with the administration.

    With all that’s happening in the 2013 legislature and the White House, we are speeding toward a government takeover of all major economic sectors. That explains why the stock market won’t maintain any increase.

    Government now has control of major sectors of the economy. While the White House was spinning Obamacare as health care, they hid their true intent which is a takeover of the medical industry which is nearly 20% of GDP. Obamacare had support of health insurance companies who will make billions on this. http://www.forbes.com/sites/toddhixon/2012/02/09/the-u-s-does-not-have-a-debt-problem-it-has-a-health-care-cost-problem/

    DemocRATS and RINO (Republican in name only) rat legislators did this. Meanwhile the Republican caucus doesn’t lean on legislators who are voting with DemocRATS.

    Health insurance IS the problem. Whenever a third party pays, no one has a vested interest in controlling costs. When people have to pay their own bills, they ask the price and decide if they want to pay that amount. Right now if you ask the cost of an office visit at the desk at your doctor’s office, they can’t tell you. They don’t know because no one asks.

    Health care has risen over 500% in the past 25 years. No other market sector has risen that high.

    The government already pays for 60-65% of healthcare from programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Veterans Health Administration.

    Those who think the government is always going to care for them have forgotten that in socialist countries, only those at the top in government benefitted by socialism. The Russian people suffered under communism.

    Bottom line, we’re screwed. I don’t see any way out of this.

    Someone just paid $1.1 million for a tear-down/fixer-upper in Mountain View, California. That’s not really news, as prices in Silicon Valley have been increasingly outrageous.

    Here’s a difference between government-run businesses and private businesses: when private businesses face competition, they are forced to innovate to survive. When government-run businesses face competition, they can regulate or tax their competitors out of business. Blackberry was once the dominant smart phone.

  • More Signs of the Transit Apocalypse October 17, 2017
    According to the Washingtonian, a transit advocacy group called TransitCenter “analyzed” the data and found that declining ridership on the Washington Metro system is “dragging down national ridership figures.” With the Metro’s numbers, the national total of heavy-rail riders is declining; without Metro, heavy-rail plus light-rail ridership is increasing. In other words, just give Metro […]
