Little gems from the Health Care Bill

I haven’t posted too terribly much on the health care bill that is a giant disaster, but here’s some good notes you should be aware of from H.R. 3200: America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (aka Obama Care). This is a lovely power grab of the fascist government we have ALLOWED.

NOTE: You can download the whole bill from GovTrack or just read the bill over here.

¢ Page 16: States that if you have insurance at the time of the bill becoming law and change, you will be required to take a similar plan. If that is not available, you will be required to take the government option!

¢ Page 22: Mandates audits of all employers that self-insure!

¢ Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!

¢ Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process)

¢ Page 59: The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.

¢ Page 65: Taxpayers will subsidize all union retiree and community organizer health plans (example: SEIU, UAW and ACORN)

¢ Page 72: All private healthcare plans must conform to government rules to participate in a Healthcare Exchange.

¢ Page 84: All private healthcare plans must participate in the Healthcare Exchange (i.e., total government control of private plans)

¢ Page 91: Government mandates linguistic infrastructure for services; translation: illegal aliens

¢ Page 95: The Government will pay ACORN and Americorps to sign up individuals for Government-run Health Care plan.

¢ Page 102: Those eligible for Medicaid will be automatically enrolled: you have no choice in the matter.

¢ Page 124: No company can sue the government for price-fixing. No “judicial review is permitted against the government monopoly. Put simply, private insurers will be crushed.

¢ Page 127: The AMA sold doctors out: the government will set wages.

And that’s just the beginning.
