A large crowd was present Oct. 23 to view the Tea Party Patriots' film, "The Determinators," presented by Southern Tier TEA Party Patriots. The event took place at the Lakewood American Legion. The group's next general meeting will be Nov. 27. The public is invited to attend.
Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots said that the film "frames the health care debate as a tug of war between Hippocrates's vision of patient-centered health care and Plato's vision, which includes a heavy government hand."
A panel of 15 unelected individuals will make health care decisions regarding the quality of care permitted. Major financial focus will be directed toward those between the ages of 15 and 55 who are regarded as "contributors" to society. Unhealthy or disabled infants and those above age 55 will receive restricted health care.
"We the people fear our government for the first time in history," said another narrator. Obamacare has the potential to control every aspect of our lives. Americans are presented with two differing views regarding medical decisions: one view protects the individual and his or her right to health care; the other view, citizens surrender their rights to the government, which is the threat of Obamacare."
