Some Tidbits from Obamacare - HR 3962




If this doesn't want to make people show up at Capitol Hill on Thursday, I don't know what will.

Reading Guide to the Pelosi Health Care Reform Bill







Page 94-Section 202(c) prohibits the sale of private individual health insurance policies, beginning in 2013, forcing individuals to purchase coverage through the federal government






Page 110-Section 222(e) requires the use of federal dollars to fund abortions through the government-run health plan-and, if the Hyde Amendment were ever not renewed, would require the plan to fund elective abortions






Page 111-Section 223 establishes a new board of federal bureaucrats (the "Health Benefits Advisory Committee") to dictate the health plans that all individuals must purchase -and would likely require all Americans to subsidize and purchase plans that cover any abortion

 Page 211-Section 321 establishes a new government-run health plan that, according to non-partisan actuaries at the Lewin Group, would cause as many as 114 million Americans to lose their existing coverage






Page 225-Section 330 permits-but does not require-Members of Congress to enroll in government-run health care






Page 255-Section 345 includes language requiring verification of income for individuals wishing to receive federal health care subsidies under the bill-while the bill includes a requirement for applicants to verify their citizenship, it does not include a similar requirement to verify applicants' identity, thus encouraging identity fraud for undocumented immigrants and others wishing to receive taxpayer-subsidized health benefits






Page 297-Section 501 imposes a 2.5 percent tax on all individuals who do not purchase "bureaucrat-approved" health insurance- the tax would apply on individuals with incomes under $250,000, thus breaking a central promise of then-Senator Obama's presidential campaign






Page 313-Section 512 imposes an 8 percent "tax on jobs" for firms that cannot afford to purchase "bureaucrat-approved" health coverage ; according to an analysis by Harvard Professor Kate Baicker, such a tax would place millions "at substantial risk of unemployment"-with minority workers losing their jobs at twice the rate of their white counterparts






Page 336-Section 551 imposes additional job-killing taxes, in the form of a half-trillion dollar "surcharge," more than half of which will hit small businesses ; according to a model developed by President Obama's senior economic advisor, such taxes could cost up to 5.5 million jobs






Page 520-Section 1161 cuts more than $150 billion from Medicare Advantage plans, potentially jeopardizing millions of seniors' existing coverage






Page 733-Section 1401 establishes a new Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research; the bill includes no provisions preventing the government-run health plan from using such research to deny access to life-saving treatments on cost grounds, similar to Britain's National Health Service, which denies patient treatments costing more than $35,000






Page 1174-Section 1802(b) includes provisions entitled "TAXES ON CERTAIN INSURANCE POLICIES" to fund comparative effectiveness research, breaking Speaker Pelosi's promise that "We will not be taxing [health] benefits in any bill that passes the House," and the President's promise not to raise taxes on families with incomes under $250,000

And the hits just keep on coming.

The trouble with liberals is, they always think they know what is best, and they always think they really want the government to take care of them, but I'm telling you, when Hussein shows his TRUE COLORS and turns on the LIBERALS, they will all come running to the conservatives for help...

But by then---it may be TOO LATE.

Message to any liberal democrat who may be reading this--

"You guys really better wake up and pay attention to what is really happening out there. You think you want this now, but trust me, you are all headed for a massive dose of REALITY when your 'Dear Leader' begins to turn on you. He is just using you right now".

Our country is going to hell and we HAVE to put a stop to it.

This calls for action. More than just a march. This calles for a NEW REVOLUTION.I have already started the first petition, everyone else (conservatives) needs to start one too. We have got to put an end to this insanity, and turn this Country around, fast, beffore it is too late.

I need smelling salts. It is astounding that they produce a WORSE bill than the one we objected to before. It makes me sick to my stomach.

Are they so insulated against real America that they think we are sheep who just follow without thought? We keep talking about this in our home.Thanks for the information!
