About D.T. Osborn

I am 57 years old and live in the great state of Nebraska. I am a direct health care services worker and recently retired pastor of a Baptist church. I have been married for 32 years and have a 30 year old son and a 26 year old daughter.


  1. First of all it wasn’t just a slip of the tongue. Barry ran on “you can keep your plan.”

    And CNN today is lying today. They report in a column “we love Obamacare” a feel good story a day.

    And here is what they ignore which is as much as lying as Barry did

    How about the 250,000 plans cancelled the first week in California by Kaiser Permanente.

    How about all the people who barely use healthcare who are now being told their premiums will skyrocket and their deductibles. Not to mention the takeover of free market by government.

    How about the fact that more entitlements are being pursued–for the people who are the least contributors–expanded Medicaid. And as a former provider I can tell you they are the largest abusers of the system–usually from poor life choices–most of the time.

    How about the fact that employer mandate hasn’t even hit yet. It this was your efficiency with individual then I can’t wait for the debacle when the rest hits.

    How about the basic notion that one man shouldn’t pay for another. There is a word for that–it’s called Marxism. And before Mr Progressive you tell me I don’t know what Marxism is please read the Manifesto. I have.

    The system will not sustain itself because most of us are not thrilled with the idea that one must pay for another. We could report on that small problem CNN

    And here is an ultimate truth neither side wants to say out loud. And this is based on 13 years of working in the healthcare system and seeing it everyday. As follows

    If they were really interested in fairness then the outrageous costs could be brought down by fee for service for most services and catastrophic insurance in the free market which would bring rates down as well. But that would mean no more free rides and God forbid I say that to the forty five year old obese person on disability whose had all care given to them no questions asked for decades. That’s the problem. Trust me, I’m an ex provider. And there are charitable organizations for those who really aren’t capable. And those people are very few. Most could have a job of some kind if we would make them. And yes that would mean we have to yank the carpet. Sorry but someone has to be the adult in the room. I have written about this–it is a moral problem. That we embrace laziness and irresponsibility. And laziness breeds itself exponentially. And now we have an epidemic of it. We shouldn’t be expanding Medicaid, we should be severely reducing it.

    Continue this entitlement mentality and you can expect the end of your nation. I don’t have to use my fiction to prove my point–history proves it for me.

    And that’s what needs to be stated out loud.

  2. “…the ultimate object of all of this, the acquisition of power and control.”

    If you stop and simply look at our government objectively it is actually 2 governments in parallel; and they are at war with each other (because we the people still have some “say” in one of them).

    On the one hand we have the remnants of the limited, by the people, for the people, Federal government. We still (theoretically) elect the officials of this government. On the other hand we have the Bureaucratic Administrative government – that veritable alphabet soup that we have no direct authority over. We DO NOT elect the heads of all of these overbearing, oppressive “departments”! Moreover our Congress has ceased to focus on Constitutional law and is now the big oversight manager of these Czarist regimes! They sold themselves to that roll in the ’60s.

    Nevertheless this second Government is under the authority of the Executive brand and if we put a dictator in that position, Voila, (to quote a phrase) we have no more Constitutional Government. Above ALL the evil that is Obamacare it is a massive expansion of that Bureaucracy!!! The enlargement of this Bureaucracy is about to overwhelm the true and rightful government of this Nation!

    When the government shut down, what was MOST affected? The Bureaucracy! And Obama did everything he could to make us, WE the PEOPLE, feel the pain because the truth is, a threat to that Bureaucracy sends his nasty-ass into a PANIC!

    Yes, we need to repeal Obamacare. We need to dismantle the Bureaucracy entirely! All of it! Every last FBI – IRS – NSA – FDA – EPA – FEMA – DHS bit of it! It is about to take away ALL of our freedom!

    • Thank you for your reply. I agree that all of those agencies also need to go. I have chosen to focus the most on Obamacare for one reason. This is the ‘cornerstone’ of Obama’s quest. For if it succeeds, it will be a demonstration of the government being able to control a huge part of every American’s life and will embolden his minions to push Socialism even further into our lives, taking full advantage of all of those other agencies to put a death grip on freedom. If it fails, there is a chance the whole scheme to “fundamentally transform” our nation will fail as well. At least there will be a grand example of how bad such government control truly is, and that can be used to push back against the gates of socialist “hell” that are being thrown up as we speak.

      • I am in total agreement with your strategy and oppose the ACA at every opportunity. I meant no distraction from your excellent article but in the hopes other readers might pick up additional insight into this mess I only wanted to share more of the big picture. Thanks for the opportunity to be inspired by your article and contribute.

        • Thanks again and I appreciate your comments as well. Any additional insight you or others may offer is always welcome.
