Congressman says Obamacare is a stinking rotten fish!

on . Posted in Patriot News Network

CLARKESVILLE, Georgia - August 12, 2009 - U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Geo.) walked into a North Georgia Technical College auditorium Tuesday evening to a standing ovation, holding three thick white binders.

"Folks, this is Obamacare," he said, holding the binders over his head.

"Let me start this by telling you what I think of this bill and Obamacare," he said, and slammed the binders on the ground.

With that, Broun set the tone for a town hall meeting on health care reform. The Democrats' proposal is too expensive and will threaten millions of Georgians' jobs and lives, he said.

"This is a stinking, rotten fish, and they don't want you to smell it, and they want to shove it down your throat and make you eat it before you smell how rotten and stinky it is," he said.

At another point, Broun, who last year made national news by comparing Obama to Adolf Hitler, said Cuba's former dictator Fidel Castro and leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez were Obama's "good buddies."

He also spoke of a "socialistic elite" - Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid - who might use a pandemic disease or natural disaster as an excuse to declare martial law.

"They're trying to develop an environment where they can take over," he said. "We've seen that historically."

Many speakers in the senior-heavy audience honed in on a clause in the health care proposal that would require insurers to cover end-of-life counseling sessions to help healthy patients decide beforehand what types of treatments they want to keep them alive if they are about to die.

"(Obama) is going to let the old folks die, and I don't like that at all," Oconee County resident Gene Aycock said.

Young people who get sick would get preference over the elderly under the Democrats' plan, said Broun, a medical doctor who made house calls in the Athens area before taking office in 2007.

"Eventually, mama will be lying in bed until she gets pneumonia and dies," he said.

Citing a study by the Lewin Group, a consulting firm owned by the insurance company United Health Group, Broun said 114 million Amerikans will be forced off their employers' insurance plans and onto a competing government-run plan because small businesses will not be able to pay for the mandated insurance. The Democrats' plan would be a precursor to a single-payer system, he said.

"They want to take away your insurance and dictate what kind of health care you're going to get," he said.
