It seems every day I awaken to yet more egregious examples of the Obama Administration’s intense vindictiveness against anyone or anything that may take exception to their socialist-inspired policies. But I must admit, this latest example has me so angry that I can barely contain my rage and disgust at the virtual police state the administration seems hellbent on creating in the United States.
I recently posted a video (see below) of an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and a cancer patient, Bill Elliot, who spoke out about his private insurance plan being cancelled due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare). This man has literally been handed a death sentence by the Obama Administration and is now forced to make a life or death decision.
But our dear leader and his pandering followers could care less whether Mr. Elliot suffers and dies as a direct result of Obama’s policies and machinations. I guess Obama et al. simply considers the plight of a cancer patient who is now facing a death sentence–because of the healthcare legislation they so ardently promote and shill for–as one of the “broken eggs” necessary to create a “utopian socialist omlette.”
This is utterly unconscionable, in my opinion. Does human life mean anything to the administration? Are we just all pawns on a chess board to be sacrificed at will whenever the Obama Administration decides it is for the “common greater good”? Can you imagine the uproar if a Republican administration was guilty of the same thing? We would never hear the end of it. And the liberal media would be right in doing so, if the situation was reversed.
But, as if that wasn’t bad enough, the story about this cancer patient’s plight does not end there. Following the interview with Megyn Kelly, Bill Elliot is now the target of an IRS audit. You read that right. Not only has the Obama Administration handed Bill Elliot a death sentence, they are now using the IRS to punish him for speaking out about his awful plight. Can you imagine the stress and pain this man must be going through right now? What about his family? Is this what the left calls the “common greater good”?

That’s a rather strange coincidence.
Would the IRS actually go after a cancer patient, who had voted for Obama initially, just for appearing on FOX and now being sharply critical of Obama and suggesting that he resign for his health plan lie?
Under the current insane state of affairs, where the IRS was used to silence the opposition, it’s unfortunately entirely possible. The fact that we are even having this discussion shows how badly Obama has undermined confidence in government institutions and the rule of law.
Americans always hated the IRS, but it’s been a while since they believed that the IRS was targeting them for their political views.
The United States desperately needs to restore the rule of law and confidence in its institutions otherwise we are facing a serious crisis in which Americans begin viewing government agencies as tools of political repression.
Oh, and it doesn’t end there. Health insurance broker C. Steven Tucker picked up the story and helped Mr. Elliot to keep his insurance. Guess what? You got it! Mr. Tucker is now being audited by the IRS!
Unbelievable. I’m sorry, America, there comes a point when enough is enough. And when people are handed a death sentence, and then are punished for speaking out about it by the very government we the people elect to serve the people, we have truly entered the realm of a totalitarian police state that will use whatever agency or power to crush its political opposition–tyranny defined.
This story should be shoved in the face of every media outlet. Don’t let it go. Hammer it. People’s lives are now on the line due to an overreaching executive hellbent on shoving their twisted morals and beliefs straight down the collective throat of America–whether they like it or not. This sort of amoral behavior exhibited by the Obama Administration must be met with the strongest sort of vituperation and resistance possible. If this doesn’t enrage you, just wait until it happens to you. Don’t think it won’t; you’re just a pawn on a chess board as far as the administration and progressive left is concerned. It’s time to put your game face on, America. This is just sheer evil, and it needs to be called out as such.
