obama's health care bill

Trust Me, I’m from the Government

Hey, believe it or not, Obama’s administration has real plans to give the elderly a helping hand in monitoring their health and welfare.

That’s the truth. One thousand and eighteen pages of help—at least the way they interpret health.

So, if you have family beyond or even approaching the age of Social Security, let them know the president is offering them assistance as they travel along the long road of life.

Yep, not only will the health Care Bill restructure health insurance into a drastically different process, they will also insist, as in MANDATE, senior citizens undergo Advance Care Planning Consultations. In other words, they will help every American over a certain age make plans for dying.
Hey, not only are those good old fellas going to do that, they will also MANDATE instruction and consultation regarding living wills and durable powers of attorney.

Wow! Isn’t that real humanitarian of them? Compassion drawn straight from Biblical teachings.

So now you forty- and fifty–year-olds with aging parents can breathe a sigh of relief. President Obama and his cohorts are planning your parents’ future. This includes an explanation by the practitioner (the doctor they choose for you) of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice as well as benefits for such services and supports that are available.

The only ones besides Democrats (and not all of them) who will benefit from this bill are the deadbeats and illegal aliens. In the past, I’ve seen Congress turn out such shabby legislation for which not even pre-schoolers would claim authorship. This one is the worst ever.
Now before you brush this off as sour grapes or the rantings of a sorehead, read what The Wallstreet Journal had to say about this Health Care Bill.

“When Mr. Obama says ‘If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what,’ he’s wrong. Period. What he’s not telling the American people is that the government will so dramatically change the rules of the insurance market that employers will find it impossible to maintain their current coverage, and many will drop it altogether. The more we inspect the House bill, the more it looks to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever introduced in Congress.”

And dear reader, keep in mind Obama had not read the bill when he made the previous remarks.

What else is it the bill?

Well, thanks to Peter Fleckstein who waded through the monstrous bill and twittered his findings, we can see the chilling intent of the government.

On page 22 of the bill, the law MANDATES that the government will audit books of all employers that self-insure. (can’t have anyone competing against the government)

On page 29, it tells us our healthcare WILL BE RATIONED. Typical of this administration, no details are provided.

On page 30, Section 123, it states ‘there will be a government committee that decides what treatments and/or benefits you get. (a committee yet)
Twelve pages later, we’re informed the Health Choices Commissioner will choose your health care benefits for you. You will have no choice.

If you can’t read between the lines here, it is saying the older you are, the fewer choices you’ll have.

I hope some of you choke on this next one. On page 50, health care will be provided all non-U.S. citizens, illegal or otherwise.

On page 58, we’re told the government will have real-time access to individual finance information, and a national ID healthcare will be issued.

And there’s more, much more, 960 pages more.

This is all spelled out in Peter Fleckman’s twitter online and in the bill. It’s a chore to read, but this is one chore you should undertake before it’s too late.
