On March 23, 2010, Obama signed into law ObamaCare - Socialized healthcare - that will lead to the largest government expansion in U.S. History - a move that was thee soul reson for the Revolutionary War that brought freedom and personal liberty to this country. ObamaCare is over 2,4000 pages long and will cost the American people over $1 trillion dollars; an additional financial burden on a country already in financial crisis thanks to the Democrat Party. But the $1 trillion dollar price tag is just the beginning, as Sally C. Pipes details in "The Truth about ObamaCare." Pipes exposes how Obama's socialism will crash our economy via higher taxes for all, regulations that are designed to destroy private insurance companies forcing the American people to purchase government controlled health care. How is thst "Hope and Change" working out for you? "The Truth About ObamaCare" is a must read. By being well informed will help those opposed to socialism revert back to freedom and personal liberty.

Most people know that ObamaCare is bad, but until this excellent book no one has made the case against ObamaCare in as much detail and as articulately as Sally does. She outlines the 2400 pages of red tape and bureaucracy fraught with 159 new committees, agencies, and boards and then discusses the devastating effects these will have on patients, doctors, families, and health care costs. While the president is out there with unlimited tax payer dollars and resources to praise his recently passed radical health care prescription, this book sets the record straight. It's a must read!

In The Truth About Obamacare, Sally C. Pipes examines the details of the new health care law and tries to show what its implementation will mean for individuals, doctors, and the country. She argues that, contrary to supporters¿ promises, the new program will make health care more expensive, limit options, lead to deteriorating medical care, and weaken America¿s already frail economy.Pipes is the president of the Pacific Research Institute, a free-market think tank based in San Francisco. In the debate over health care, she has definitely chosen her side, championing market-based reforms such as allowing the interstate purchase of health insurance and revising the tax code to encourage individually-purchased, instead of employer-provided, insurance. But Pipes is no ranting demagogue. She bases her arguments on the language of the bill and lots of research rather than emotional rhetoric.Pipes's prognosis of health care under the new rules is grim. However, she closes the book with an optimistic section on alternate proposals for solving America's health care problems. She argues for repealing the recently-enacted statute and then focusing federal policy on encouraging increased individual purchase of health insurance, expanding Health Savings Accounts, and establishing a voucher system for the uninsured who cannot afford insurance and who do not already qualify for existing government programs.The book is aimed at a general audience and, although dependent on some pretty dry statistics and detailed research, is readable and accessible. Those opposed to the new health care laws will definitely want to bone up on the subject with Pipes¿s book. Proponents also may want to read the book to better understand some of the rational arguments against the new system.

I feel that this book is full of nothing but speculative banter about the end of the world. Every argument is based on what the author thinks is going to happen. I understand what she is trying to do but I think it is too premature to write a book about the health bill at this time. No one knows enough about the bill to know what's going to happen in the future let alone 2050. I am sorry Miss Pipes but I am sure when America decided to integrate schools, there was probably similar dooms day rhetoric going on as well. Like the economic status of this country no one knows how to fix the problem. It will take time and trials before we get it right. For too long the health care system has been allowed to bankrupt families and deny poor people (preventive). That has to stop. I applaud any person (Barack) who challenges the status quo. I agree that the bill may be very clouded and stuffed with stupidity but just like my parents had enough faith in this country to make integration work; I have enough faith in this country to make this bill work. It is an overall good thing, a humane thing and an overdue thing. I thank goodness that it is at least on the books because now the parties will be forced to address the issue. Authors who give a damn should be writing books on how to make bill work. That would serve a better purpose.
