DO YOU REALLY WANT THESE HEALTH CARE REFORMS?
In just the first 500 pages of
the 1,018 page bill, here‘re some “reforms” you won’t like:
On Page 29, there’s
an admission that health care will be rationed under this new plan. On Page 30, it says that a government committee will be
established to decide what treatments and benefits we’ll get. However there will be no process to appeal their decisions,
as is now the case with private insurance plans.
On Page 50, it states that all non-US citizens, illegal or not, will
be provided with free health care services.
On Page 59, it states that the federal government will have
access to all individual bank accounts for health-related electronic funds transfers.
On Page 124, it states
that no one can sue the government for price-fixing. Furthermore, no “judicial review” is permitted against a
On Page 127, it says that the government will set wages for physicians.
Page 149, couched in esoteric language, any employer with a payroll of $400,000 or more, who does not offer the public option,
pays an 8% tax on payroll as a penalty. This penalty would go a long way towards destroying the private system. It also violates
Pres. Obama’s campaign promises.
On Page 203, there is a very strange sentence: “The tax imposed
under this section shall not be treated as tax imposed by this chapter for purposes of determining the amount of any credit
under this chapter.” Apparently calling a “tax” by some other name means it is no longer a tax. This seems
to be a persistent theme in this bill.
Page 272 has some of the most esoteric language of the health care
bill. But it looks like the government plans to ration health care for cancer patients.
On Page 280, it
says that hospitals will be penalized for what the government deems to be “preventable re-admissions.” How is
the government in a better position (than a health care professional) to determine what constitutes a “preventable re-admission“?
Page 318 it says that hospitals can no longer expand without government approval.
On Page 429 it says that an advance
care planning consultation will be used to dictate treatment as a patient’s health deteriorates. This can include an
order for end-of-life plans – specifically, an order from the government.
