After hearing from Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Lloyd Doggett, and dozens of others that Obamacare will save us all, we have nothing to fear from it, everybody wants this, and whatever other talking points they have on a particular day, I decided that my blog (with its incredibly tiny sphere of influence) needed to point to some actual truth about it. Let's face it: people on both sides of this have made some pretty absurd statements.
But here is some truth, as disclosed by CNN, of all places: you'll lose 5 key freedoms under Obama's health care plan. The article discusses these in detail, but in short, those freedoms are:
1. Freedom to choose what's in your plan
2. Freedom to be rewarded for healthy living, or pay your real costs
3. Freedom to choose high-deductible coverage
4. Freedom to keep your existing plan
5. Freedom to choose your doctors
Do please check this out, since some of these items have been routinely misrepresented by President Obama and others. The gist is this: did you like the HMOs of the early 1990s? Then you'll really love Obamacare. If you didn't, then tell your representative and senators before it's too late.
