LETTER: Vote no on Obamacare

U.S. Representatives: Please vote no on funding Obamacare. As a nurse with a bachelor’s degree, I know that if hospitals get government money, a government bureaucratic panel will determine what medical care will be given in all hospitals.

Money has been taken out of Medicare to pay for Obamacare. That is what is called a Death Panel.

Under Obamacare, the government will tell surgeons that they must do abortions or they can’t practice in any certified hospital. That is blackmail. The surgeons have spent well over $100,000 for a medical education. The government coercion is threatening their loans on their education as well as their livelihood. That is like paying a hit man to kill someone. You don’t want to do the dirty work, so hire someone to do it. People go to prison for such crimes.

I worked in the first premature baby ward. Those babies were as small as two pounds. I’ve seen them grown to adulthood and parenthood. They were just as alive as a baby at full term. Why is the government telling people they are not people until they are born? Why does the U.S. Senate want to tell doctors and nurses that they have to kill babies we know are alive?

Medical school and nursing school take a lot of reading. You wouldn’t want to go to a doctor who hadn’t read and passed a rigid state board exam. Why then didn’t the senators read a 17,000 page Obamacare bill before they passed it? Even President Obama is adding and subtracting who has to comply with it. The senators didn’t read it because they were too lazy to read.

Who passed the law that everything had to be included in one bill? If it was done, then a bill must be passed to undo such an atrocity.
