The four decade Progressive Palooka, acting as governor of Arkansas is on the threshold of implementing the first installment of Obama’s attack on American healthcare, known as Obamacare.
The mechanism for all practical purposes is in place and is known as “for episodes of high-quality care”, i.e. Medicaid. In typical bureaucratic doublespeak this can only be described as right out of “Atlas Shrugged” or “1984”. Does anyone really believe that Gov. Beebe created this entrance into full-blown Socialized medicine?
Obama/Beebe envisions the takeover of American healthcare by creating a “partnership” with healthcare providers, who would then be reimbursed for the creation of the so-called “episodes of high-quality care”. (shades of Agenda 21 “quality of place”) For those who are not cerebrally involved in U.S. politics, (that’s why we are in the shape we are in) when you hear government calling for the creation of a “partnership” between government and for-profit businesses, understand that government is always the CEO and as long as the private businesses understand this fact, said businesses will live to see another day. Also involved in this cunning takeover of Arkansas healthcare is U.S. Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius, former governor of Kansas and the woman who spurns paying her federal income taxes.
Palooka Beebe, in the month of April, doled out $70 million more into the ever-expanding Ark. Medicaid program. It is estimated that there will be an $80 million Medicaid shortfall by July 2012 and a $250 million shortfall by July, 2013. The federal government (that’s you & me) matches state Medicaid dollars three to one: therefore the total shortfall will be $1 billion in 2 years.
Beebe’s spokesman, Matt DeCample, made the statement for the ages “it’s going to get really bad if we don’t do something”. Addressing this preposterous statement…first dump the flotsam & jetsam, i.e. the deadbeats, ne’er-do-wells, illegal Mexicans & OTM’s, and subsidize only the 3-5% of Americans who cannot fend in any way for themselves. Then immediately introduce a means-testing program that has standards that absolutely cannot & will not be overturned.
The mentality that Obama, Sibelius & Beebe’s positions reveal is beyond belief. What they are demanding is for Arkansan & American producers to continue to expand Medicaid programs exponentially, without means testing, while delivering more benefits to the welfare society than the producers can possibly provide.
The 40 year backroom political charlatan, in cahoots with national and statewide Progressives, is dedicated to destroying our once preeminent republic and we have only to blame Arkansas’ simpletons for continuing to reelect crooked socialists. There are no limits to their forced redistribution madness.
The first nail has been driven and not a whimper from the elected state and national Republican delegation!
