Cost of National Health Care - BO Plan

We need perspective -

The estimated population of the United States, as of today, is 306,712,164 people.

The estimated number of uninsured (health) Americans is +-45,000,000 people. This represents 14.7% of the total population.

BO (or GAB) has proposed a national health care plan. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has studied this plan and estimates that it will cost approximately $1,600,000,000,000 (that is $1.6 Trillion) to cover one third of the uninsured over the next ten years.

That means that it will cost around $5,000,000,000,000 ($5 Trillion) to cover all of the uninsured for ten years. But, didn't he promise a health care plan for everyone? Isn't that the goal, here? He will not have the level of control over your life, that he desires for Government to have, if you are not a part of his "plan".

So, to cover the US population (based on the above figures), would cost around $32,000,000,000,000 ($32 Trillion) for ten years.

I do not know about you, but that is too many zeros for me to comprehend. I need to put into some perspective.

One million seconds is 11.57 days.
One year has 31,557,600 seconds.
One billion seconds is 31 years and 251 days.
Two billion seconds is 63 years and 137 days.
Ron will be two billion seconds old on January 14, 2011.
One trillion seconds is 31,688 years.

If you spend one dollar per second, and spend 32 trillion dollars (the cost of the above health plan), it would take you one million years.

That's right! 1,000,000 years worth of seconds to spend that much, one dollar per second.

Where does he think that kind of money will come from?????

That cost is impossible for the country to absorb. No matter how high the taxes get or how much he borrows or how much he just prints; the late, great USA cannot sustain that level of financial burden.

GAB is smart enough to realize that. So, what do you think the real plan is?

Phase 1 - Create a crisis in the minds of the people,
Phase 2 - Promise a solution to the crisis,
Phase 3 - Propose a plan to meet the perceived crisis,
Phase 4 - Express shock as to the cost of the fix,
Phase 5 - Raise taxes to help cover the cost,
Phase 6 - Cut benefits to lower the runaway costs,
Phase 7 - Dictate every area of our lives because how we live affects health care costs,
Phase 8 - Reign over the population, controlling most of what we do.

Mission accomplished!

(Just an added note - a recent poll indicates that 89% of Americans are satisifed with the health care system we currently have.)


  1. yikes. Like you told me, you're worried for the next couple generations and the repurcussions they'll face after Obama's brilliant plans put this country in debt it cannot EVER pull out from. Already, our deficit is something that cannot be made up for a very, very long time even if the spending stopped now...and we know that isn't about to happen!
    Being a parent now, I wonder too what kind of world my kids will inherit.

  2. "Ron will be two BILLION seconds old on January 14, 2011" oh, wow, LOL!!! Somehow, Ron missed this post, I am sure! :D

  3. Sorry, Anne, this IS a serious post, but I just couldn't pass on the "two billion seconds old" !!

    I am just grateful that my GOD owns the cattle on a THOUSAND Hillsides! Whether or not he will chose to slay a few for me, remains His decision. May we TRUST Him...even if He doesn't.
