Well it looks like the House of Representatives passed a health care bill that puts the government in competition with private insurance companies. Since the insurance companies will not be able to compete with the government, eventually the government will be the single provider of al health care in this country. No one knows what other little nuggets are hidden in this 2,000+ page bill since it was voted on without anyone reading it.
The health care bill is not actually law yet, it still needs to be harmonized with whatever the Democrats in the Senate have in mind. But it is inevitable, we will have government run health care.
Most of the opposition to government run health care bill is focused on how it will be paid for. The Leftists running our government really don’t care what things cost, the more debt they can put the US into the better. For those who want to fundamentally change the US; the best way to do that is to crash the value of the dollar so that we are on the same level as an emerging nation. As the saying goes you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs.
Another hidden agenda item behind the health care legislation is power. It takes control from the private sector and transfers it to the government. This means it takes away individual freedoms. Liberals talk like they want more freedoms such as the choices to have an abortion, smoke marijuana, and have a gay marriage. Indeed the term “Liberal” sounds like it stands for more freedoms but it is a deception. Liberals really want to take away individual freedoms…
The Liberals love big government, the bigger the better. The problem with a bigger government is that it comes with more taxes to pay for all their “services.” When more taxes are taken from individuals, they lose the opportunity to make decisions on the use of that money thus losing freedom. Those who love the power of a bloated government will do what they can to grab more power so that they can make more decisions for more people.
The health care legislation is a huge power grab. Eventually the government will tell what we should and shouldn’t eat, behaviors that are and are not acceptable, etcetera all in the interest of reducing the cost of health care. They really don’t want to reduce the cost of health care but they do want more control over people.
What we are seeing our Leftist government do as fast as they can is twofold: (1) reduce the power of the US in the world and (2) increase the power of the government over the people of the US. The personal impact of our government is greater than it has ever been in history. Most people have not figured out the ramifications of this and instead think that “all things continue as they were from the beginning” (2 Peter 3:4, NKJ).
The changes that are underway are amazing to watch. And the pace of change is accelerating. Most people are oblivious to the ramifications of these changes. As God told the prophet Daniel, “the end of it shall be with a flood” (Daniel 9:26) meaning that it will overwhelm people suddenly. Jesus gave even more details saying, “as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be… they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark and did not know until the flood came and took them all away” (Matthew 24:37-39).
This is not a time to put off following Jesus.
