The liberals (some of my friends and some stragglers commenting on this blog tonight) have blinders on as to what the proposed bill for healthcare really contains.
Well, thanks to a gentleman named Peter Fleckstein and to the Economic Policy Journal that documented his Twitters on the subject, we have a good summary of the “goodies” that are in this bill for all of us to enjoy!
Because, you know…./sarc on/ we are all clamoring for Obama to tell us what treatments he deems necessary for us and our families…./sarc off/
This summary includes the pages of the bill where individual proposals are documented. If you want to check the facts of the bill yourself…do so here, but is very slow loading due to the size (It is not surprising that this bill is even detrimental to your patience and your computer!)
Well, let’s just say you may need to consult with your doctor before reading because just reading this bill could be hazardous to your health….
Some of the highlights you say?
READ IT ALL at DougRoss at Journal, but here are some highlights”
Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!
Page 42: The “Health Choices Commissioner” will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. None.
Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services
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 (read: SEIU, UAW and ACORN)
Page 272: Cancer patients: welcome to the wonderful world of rationing!
Page 354: Government will restrict enrollment of SPECIAL NEEDS individuals.
Page 429: Advance Care Planning Consult will be used to dictate treatment as patient’s health deteriorates. This can include an ORDER for end-of-life plans. An ORDER from the GOVERNMENT.
And especially for those of you “government-control deniers” — you know who you are:
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 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 195: Officers and employees of Government Healthcare Bureaucracy will have access to ALL American financial and personal records.
Page 253: Government sets value of doctors’ time, their professional judgment, etc.
Page 265: Government mandates and controls productivity for private healthcare industries.
Page 318: Prohibition on hospital expansion. Hospitals cannot expand without government approval.
Page 335: Government mandates establishment of outcome-based measures: i.e., rationing.
Page 427: Government mandates program that orders end-of-life treatment; government dictates how your life ends.
Page 430: Government will decide what level of treatments you may have at end-of-life.
Call your representatives TODAY! Spread the word to EVERYONE you know.
This bill is so dangerous, sloppy, and un-American at so many levels…..and it doesn’t solve our healthcare problems to boot!
