If you all think or thought that Obamacare is good for us, I'd like to take the time to share these thoughts with you that have been brought to attention by the AMAC.

Did you know that Obamacare can be dufunded, which is our only way to stop Obamacare before it starts to hurt us.

The left-wing controlled U.S. Senate refuses to even vote on the repeal passed last year and again in July of this year, but the U.S. Constitution gives the House the power of the purse, all spending bills must begin there. If the House refuses to fund Obamacare, then it dies.

If we fail to defund Obamacare now, some 16,000 new IRS agents will begin prying into our private medical records trying to find any violations in our treatments or precriptions that we may have received.

Your own doctor will no longer be free to recommend what's best for you.

In January 2012, Obamacare created Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) to ration health care. It will save money by mandating prices and limiting surgeries, procedures, devices medications and other treatment, whether or not your best interest is served.

Since seniors as a group require more health services than younger people, the IPAB targets seniors; this may be your loved one. Ouch.

The bottom line, Obamacare means:

Rationing – if deemed to high a price, Obama’s new IPAB can make it impossible for you to get the best treatment for your needs.

Denial of life-saving treatment – Obama’s IPAB is the true death panel; if they decide you are to old or the treatment you need costs too much, tough luck – you better stay healthy.

Privacy violated – your confidential doctor/patient relationship is invaded by government prying into your medical files.

Last but not least, second guessing your doctor deciding what you can and can’t have done, even overriding your doctor.

It's wrong for the federal government to interfer in health-care rationing and socialized medicaine. It's wrong for them to interfer in private medical decisions and dictate what and how much medical care is provided.

The left wing believes in taxing social secrity benefits, which is like not giving you what you are owed after paying into the system for your lifetime.

The left wing also believes in your grieving family paying a death tax, whether your family has to sell your home or business to pay those taxes.

I know whom I'm voting for. I don’t want another four years of what we have had. I don’t want to be told what I can and can’t have done, or that my loved ones can’t have those life-saving treatments because they are too old or they cost too much. I don’t want to become a socialized America. I have had enough, how about you? I am voting the Romney/Ryan ticket. I am voting for Americanism.
