Last week, TOTUS & The Symbiont successfully planted the seeds of their social utopia by signing into law the universal healthcare legislation which has been the subject of debate for the last year.  Several underhanded techniques and practices were used in the process, including a colorful use of the English language by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

 

A wide variety of opinion polls commissioned by parties on all ends of the political spectrum has revealed that the public at large did not like the bill as it was written.  Even still, Congress and the President moved forward with their agenda as a solid display of their ability to govern against the will of the people.

 

Once the legislation was signed into law, Obama sent an email to his supporters asking that they add their own names to the legislation as well. Here at TharpSter.Org, we were able to obtain a copy of that letter before it was wordsmithed and disseminated.

Dear Kool Aid Guzzling Minion –I’m writing to you on a great day for America.  It’s a great day because I said it was.

This morning, on the 91st anniversary of the creation of Benito Mussolini’s fascist movement and the 77th anniversary of rise to Adolph Hitler’s dictatorship, I gathered with members of my own party from Congress, my administration, and hardworking, yet ill-informed volunteers from every part of the country to sign comprehensive wealth redistribution under the guise of health care reform into law. Thanks to the immeasurable efforts of so many, the special deals, the threats, the bribes, and the kickbacks, the dream of reform is now a reality.

The bill I just signed puts Americans in charge of our own health care right behind governmental control by enacting three key changes:

It establishes the toughest patient protections from insurance companies in history, and makes them a victim of the government instead.

It guarantees all Americans the demise of affordable health insurance options, extending even more substandard coverage to 32 million who are currently uninsured.

And it reduces the cost of care to the patient on an individual basis, while generating massive tax increases for everyone else — cutting over 1 trillion dollars from the federal deficit over the next two decades.

We will use our tools of incrementalism to ensure a successful, stable transition.  Since the bill really isn’t about health care, many of these changes will phase into full effect over the next several years.

But for millions of Americans, many of the benefits of reform will begin this year — some even taking effect this afternoon. Here are just a few examples:

The small businesses who have survived my economic policies so far will receive significant tax cuts, this year, to help them afford health coverage for all their employees.

Seniors will receive a rebate to reduce drug costs not yet covered under Medicare.  It’s the least we can do now, as seniors will be the hardest hit class by this legislation.

Young people will be allowed to continue to avoid taking responsibility for their own lives by gaining coverage under their parents’ plan until the age of 26.

For a short time until the funds run out, early retirees will receive help to reduce premium costs.

Even though it didn’t get written into the original bill, children will be protected against discrimination on the basis of medical history.

Uninsured Americans with pre-existing conditions can join a special high-risk pool that has no real operating instructions to get the coverage they need, starting in just 90 days.

Insured Americans will be protected from seeing their insurance revoked when they get sick, or facing restrictive annual limits on the care they receive.  New limits will be placed by the government instead.

All Americans will benefit from significant new investments to train primary care doctors, nurses, and public health professionals, as the existing ones are bolting from the profession as a result of this law. The creation of state-level consumer assistance programs to help all patients understand and defend our new rights will make things just that much worse.

As I’ve said many times, and as I know to be true, this astounding victory could not have been achieved without your tireless efforts.  Wheeling and dealing with members of my own party was the key to getting this monster through.

So as we celebrate this great day, I want to invite you to add your name where it belongs: alongside mine as a co-signer of this historic legislation. Organizing for America will record the names of co-signers as a permanent commemoration of those who came together to make this moment possible — all of you who refused to give up until the dream of many generations for government control and wealth redistribution disguised as affordable, quality care for all Americans was finally fulfilled.

So, if you haven’t yet, please add your name as a proud health care reform co-signer today:
