Okay, two Obamacare reports came out this week that have me totally nonplussed. I'm going to need to have a Democrat explain them both to me because, as they stand, they seem to be clear proof that Obama indeed hates American citizens, loves illegal Mexicans, and seems to have opened a new front on the war against American citizens.
The first report was issued by the IRS Commissioner and the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Both agencies have jointly announced that any charity hospital operating within the United States will face severe penalties if they dare offer free health care to American citizens. The IRS has declared that they have been directed to withdraw 501 tax exempt protections of charity hospitals who dare to offer free medical care to the indigent American citizen. This was confirmed by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius who cited the reason; the government fears that, if Americans are given any form of free health care they are unlikely to sign up and pay Obamacare premiums.
At the same time, a separate report shows that Obama has set aside $500 million dollars in Obamacare funding to build some 200 free medical clinics in communities where the population is largely made up of illegal Hispanics! The government is taking the position that, since illegals won't be eligible for Obamacare, they need to have their medical needs paid for by taxpayers. This is madness!
The IRS/HHS report specifies that over 60% of our nation's hospitals are designated as "non profit", or charity hospitals! Punishing these hospitals with fines and the withdrawal of tax exemptions places a tremendous burden on both the hospitals themselves as well as poor working class Americans.
One of the biggest casualties of this war on American citizens will be St. Jude's Children Cancer Research hospital. St. Jude's was established by beloved entertainer Danny Thomas some fifty years ago and solicits charity donations so that no American family has to be turned away for lack of funds to treat their children's cancer. This grand institution has not only treated tens of thousands of kids, but have also achieved great strides in cancer treatments through the research arm of the hospital. Under latest Obamacare directives they will no longer be able to provide these services!
So yeah, I'm going to need an explanation from one of you Obamanites. I'm going to need you to explain why Obama is waging war against American citizens while concurrently providing free medical care to illegal Mexicans.
Anyone care to explain this to me?
