To The Daily Sun,
Paula Trombly expresses her sheer joy for "The Supremes" saving Obamacare one more time. She finds triumphant joy with this victory for President Obama by using lyrics from a big hit by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons — "Oh What a Night" indeed. Little does she know, apparently, that this may be a victory for our president, but it is a crushing defeat for our constitutional republic. Not to mention quality health care.
You see Paula, the Supreme Court used to be about dedication to the law of the land. But now it has become an activist choir in black robes singing the praises for dictatorial power within the executive branch. Gone is the "one of a kind separation of powers" that has made this country the fairest in all of the land. In its place is that most dreaded of progressive beasts — ever burgeoning centralized power.
Democrats tout the amazing fact that 16 million more folks now have health care. Of that tiny percentage, how many are happy with what they have? And what of the rest of us, or the 95 percent who will be paying more and getting less quality of care.
Insurance companies and bureaucrats are burying doctors and nurses with time-consuming paperwork. The result is less time to spend with patients, so better order more costly tests, just in case. Between staring at the computer screen and filling out forms, physicians will have less time to actually diagnosis the real problem and so will end up more often treating symptoms and prescribing medications. The underlying cause may miss proper diagnoses as insurance companies are interested in numbers of patients seen rather than proper treatment.
Loss of liberty and loss of quality of medical care. A real lose-lose happenstance just occurred today, June 25th. I have a golden oldie song for Paula. "My World is Empty Without You" by The Supremes (pun intended). More of us will lament — "And as I go my way alone, I find it hard for me to carry on. I need your strength, I need your tender touch. I need the love, my dear, I miss so much."
Soon, long gone will be that personal touch that we have for so long cherished from our family physician. "Inside this cold and empty house I dwell. In darkness with memories I know so well." Will those memories soon be lost and forgotten? Or will we hear the sounds of another Supremes hit — "Working My Way Back to You"?
Will the citizens of this country find the gumption to fight back against this socialist dragon and its quiver of poison pills? Or have we lost the will to be responsible stewards of our constitutional republic. Are we content only to desire what is in it for me, accepting the false promises of the ruling elite who care not a whit if we remain healthy and fit?
Paula, I'm afraid you have been deceived. The promises of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are not to be believed. As for the Supreme Court, look into the mirror and check out the lyrics from "Reflections" — "reflections of the way life used to be. In you I put all my faith and trust." Start doing the job our Founding Fathers entrusted in you. Please.
