The Baucus DietPosted Friday, October 16, 2009, at 1:45 PM
Your government to the rescue!
Under the Senate health care takeover bill, your government is going to fix your overweight problem. Sure, it's easy, they are simply going to outlaw your fat. Why didn't anyone think of this before? It's so simple. Wow!
In an article, Oct 15th, in the state run WashingtonPost.com, Obama media agent David S. Hilzenrath, reports, "get in shape or pay..." Oh my, lose weight now, or it will cost you big. Reports Mr. Hilzenrath, the bill could "...put workers under intense financial pressure to lose weight..."
Is that the change you were voting for? Let me ask you folks that are overweight a question. How would you feel about a complete "health assessment" before you can get a job? Sounds nice doesn't it, until some skinny tofu eater informs you that your health assessment doesn't allow them to hire you. Or, they can hire you, but your health care 'contribution' will be much higher then the skinny folks.
Oh I know you Liberals voted for Obama to get them "good old boys" and punish anyone that has a dime more than you. However, leftists never end in their desire to control everyone, so the size of your butt will now be everybody's business.
No diet has worked for you, so maybe stiff financial penalties, loss of job opportunities, public humiliation and scorn will work.
Smokers will be right there with you porkers. Smokers have gotten use to unfair taxation, scorn, ridicule, outright lies and misinformation, but now you fat folks get to enjoy the fun.
It won't be too long my fat friends until you are hiding in the bathroom at work trying to eat your contraband Twinkies in peace. Some day, you may find yourself running (or at a fast waddle) out the door with a gang of libs in pursuit, shouting, "Stop her! She's got Twinkies!"
I must remind you that the reason the liberals want, what they call health insurance reform, has nothing to do with health care, or even reform. If the left really wanted everybody to have health insurance, there are many simple ways to do it.
The problem for the left is that none of the simple and much less expensive methods of providing health care, involve massive government bureaucracies, new entitlements, payoffs, corruption and the almost absolute control of your life.
You cannot even begin to fathom the can of worms the Obama Administration is about to unleash upon America under the guise of health care.
You're going to find that taxpayers will fund sex change operations, lots of mental health care, abortions, yet, your life will be under scrutiny. Hunters, campers, fisherman, boaters, motorcyclists, horseback riding, and the like, will find their activities classified as "risky". And these are just a few examples, the left will have allot more things they will want to outlaw, under the umbrella of "health care."
The Baucus Bill. The liberal establishment, entrenched in our large cities and coastal areas, found a chump, the perfect chump to get his name on this disaster for America. It will be a westerner, a lamb led to slaughter for promises of money for his State's roads or schools, or whatever, that will have his name on this obscenity.
The wonder of America has been that folks in the now, were willing to sacrifice, and work hard, to risk their lives, to struggle to either fail or succeed, in order to provide a better future for their children and grandchildren.
How truly sad for America that today's American seems to want to take from their children and grandchildren. Today's citizen apparently has no problem killing off freedoms that they enjoyed, and their kids and grandkids will not enjoy.
Today's American says let's steal money from our kids, steal their financial future, consigning our offspring to virtual serfdom, to make our life today...easier. The pioneers of a hundred and fifty years ago, if given the opportunity, would spit in our faces with disgust.
You think I am too harsh? Compare the pioneers, to the fifty thousand poor souls who showed up in downtown Detroit a week ago because they thought Obama was handing out $3500 bucks out of "his stash."
No, I am not to harsh. And for you fat liberals, get ready for the hell you have wished for, and worked hard for. You are about to get it.
Let me know if you lose weight under The Baucus Diet.
