Health Care Insurance Mandate Most Intrusive to Individual

Benjamin Franklin said it best.

Should any health care insurance reform measure pass no matter what its contents in addition to the mandate on individuals and a fine for non-compliance, it will be obvious the "little temporary safety" Franklin warned of - is the mindset of the United States of America's public.

There is still hope you can make your voice heard. For us, however, there is no acceptance of any bill put forth by Congress regarding individual choice to purchase or not purchase, anything, including health care insurance from among private, so-called non-profit entities, or a public option, absolutely no acceptance.

Want to sound off on health-care debate?
New website offers free online lobby tool – no matter your opinion
Posted: November 23, 2009

A new online lobby tool allows visitors to take a broad-based survey on the health-care issues facing Congress and transmits the results free to their member of the House of Representatives and both of their senators.

The website,, is the work of Brad O'Leary, publisher of the monthly political insider newsletter "The O'Leary Report" and author of "The Audacity of Deceit" and "Shut Up, America."

"This is a great tool to shake up the current health-care debate in Congress – if people use it," said O'Leary.

Visitors to the site can answer 14 critical questions on health-care reform and then click to automatically send their answers to their senators and congressman. The service is completely free for all users...

... O'Leary has also launched a special television program running on 220 cable and network television stations. The program promotes two messages: 1) Why it's important for everyone to improve personal health and wellness to keep health-care costs down, and 2) Why it's important Americans go to to tell their senators and representatives where they stand in the health-care debate.

The TV special is hosted by Bryant Gumbel with a special appearance by actor Dean Cain...

Poll: Americans agree on health insurance
But Obamacare out of step with Zogby-O'Leary respondents

Americans have put aside partisan difference and agree on several significant health care issues, but facets of Obama's health-care plan remain outside of those boundaries, according to a newly released Zogby International/O'Leary Report poll.

"Congress should put forward a health care reform plan that addresses these eight issues on which most Americans agree," Brad O’Leary, publisher of "The O'Leary Report," said today.

"In particular, tort reform and permitting Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines have near universal appeal with voters. New taxes, on the other hand, are almost universally opposed," he said.

O'Leary, besides authoring the report bearing his name, also has written "Shut Up America: The End of Free Speech."

...Regarding support for new taxes on employer-provided health care benefits, only about 12 percent agreed and nearly 78 percent said no.

Likewise, 75 percent said no when asked about raising taxes to fund a government-run health insurance program for the 26 million Americans who can afford insurance but choose not to buy it or the 12 million illegal aliens who lack health insurance. Only 15 percent said that should happen.

A federal proposal that would fine Americans for not purchasing health insurance is a bad idea, according to 70 percent of respondents, and a good idea for 18 percent.

And restrictions for pre-existing conditions should be allowed, according to about 20 percent of the respondents, while 68 percent said no such limits should be permitted.

Regarding the proposed Obamacare "Independent Medicare Advisory Council," which purportedly would make decisions "to deny payment for procedures it deems unnecessary or futile," not even one voter in three supports the idea...
