What's In The Health Care Bill?

Here are some of the highlights of some of the change the President has in mind for our health care. Complete bill here.

{UPDATE 11/10/09: This is the old version, as of July 2009. The latest version is H.R. 3962. We’ll call it Obamacare v2.0. You’ve come here due to a net search. The latest incarnation of this is the one the House approved last Saturday night and is HERE.}

But first, the lead sentence of the bill H.R. 3200 .

To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans

and reduce the growth in health care spending, and

for other purposes.

‘Pan American’ would be a truthful description. That this bill is intended to cover only Americans is a deception that Democrats and their willing accomplices, the mainstream media, continue to perpetuate.

Below is some of the highlights from the first 500 pages.

Pg 22 of the HC Bill mandates the Government will audit books of all employers that self insure.

Can you imagine what that will do to small businesses? Every one will abandon “self insurance” and go on Government insurance. So when Obama says that there will still be private health care, it’s simply a lie: this mandate will force employers to abandon their private plans.

Pg 30 Sec 123 of HC bill – a Government committee (good luck with that!) will decide what treatments/benefits a person may receive.

Pg 29 lines 4-16 in the HC bill – YOUR HEALTHCARE WILL BE RATIONED! (We all knew this, because health care is rationed in Canada and Britain, but Obama kept saying it would not be).

Pg 195 HC Bill -officers & employees of HC Admin (the GOVERNMENT) will have access to ALL Americans’ finances and personal records.

PG 203 Line 14-15 HC – “The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax” Yes, it says that.

Pg 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill Government will reduce physician services for Medicaid. Seniors, low income, poor affected.

Pg 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill – Doctors – doesn’t matter what specialty – will all be paid the same.

PG 253 Line 10-18 Government sets value of Doctor’s time, professional judgment, etc. Literally, value of humans.

PG 265 Sec 1131Government mandates & controls productivity for private HC industries.

PG 268 Sec 1141 Federal Government regulates rental & purchase of power driven wheelchairs.

PG 272 SEC. 1145. TREATMENT OF CERTAIN CANCER HOSPITALS – Cancer patients – welcome to rationing!

Page 280 Sec 1151 The Government will penalize hospitals for what Government deems preventable readmissions.

Pg 298 Lines 9-11 Doctors who treat a patient during initial admission that results in a readmission – Government will penalize you.

pg 321 2-13 Hospitals have opportunity to apply for exception BUT community input required. Can u say ACORN?!

Pg 429 Lines 1-9 An “advanced care planning consultant” will be used frequently as patients’ health deteriorates.

PG 429 Lines 10-12 “advanced care consultation” may include an ORDER for end of life plans. AN ORDER from the Government to end a life!

Page 472 Lines 14-17 PAYMENT TO COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATION. 1 monthly payment to a community-based organization. (Like ACORN?)

PG 489 Sec 1308 The Government will cover Marriage & Family therapy. Which means they will insert Government into our marriages.

  1. If nothing in this post is true, then you have a lot of responding to do. But to the two points you list here, I will respond.

    I’ll begin with the notion that the federal government has no business attempting to run the health care industry. It’s about those darn negative rights that Obama frets over when he, the Constitutional lawyer, speaks about the Constitution. Just like it has no right running the auto industry, the financial industry, or any other industry except the government industry. That does belong to the government.

    That about sums it up right there. But I’ll continue anyway.

    One reason, and a very BIG reason that health care is as expensive as it is is because of government mandated coverages. Take Marriage and Family Therapy for example. Every blasted problem in our lives does not require or need a government solution. Which is what PG 489 Sec 1308 does. This administration is attempting to be our mother, father, nanny, doctor, nurse, teacher, mortgage broker, car dealer, and baby sitter, and doesn’t mind taking from future generations to do it. THAT is immoral. We didn’t become the greatest nation in the world in less than 200 years by virtue of a big intrusive government. Freedom and Liberty did that. What Obama wants to do will reverse all that.

    As for the OMG’s. I know what it means. It means there will be less health care available in small communities that can’t afford to build big hospitals and attract doctors like big cities can. And again, doctors who invest all they have to become doctors to fulfill their profession of healing the sick should be encouraged, not discouraged to practice. Dictating what they can do with their money is not government’s responsibility in a free society. Fascists, socialist societies do that.

    I remember the financial system meltdown. The CRA started out to be a good idea when Jimmy Carter started it. It worked somewhat, up until it was expanded under Clinton, with the help of Barack Obama and ACORN, to include people who had no means to make their payments. The market got involved when Fanny Mae, Freddie Mac, Contrywide, AIG and others decided to sell those worthless mortgages as a new product called Mortgage Backed Securities, to suckers around the world. And it was Democrats in Washington that ignored warnings (from Republicans and OFHEO (Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight)) of just what could come about if they didn’t quit it. They didn’t quit it. And the warnings all came to fruition. Ta Daa!

    That isn’t a concern for OMG’s. We’re talking about small medical centers in small communities and in out-of-the-way places here. We’re talking about private corporations, associations, pooling their resources to provide a service to the people while making a living for themselves. It is free enterprise and risk taking at work.

    It was the government interfering with the free market that led to the fall of the financial industry by pressuring them to make ridiculously risky loans that, without which, the financial industry wouldn’t have had a meltdown. The mistake was the intervention, trying to make home owners out of people that should have been renters.

  2. Man, you need to tighten your tin-foil hat. Absolutely nothing you say on here is true.

    For example… How does the Government plan covering marriage and family counseling constitute Government insertion into our marriages? Most health providers cover some level of marriage and family therapy, but no one claims that UnitedHealth has inserted itself into their marriage. Are you serious?

    And the “OMG Prohibition on Ownership…” is for RURAL Hospitals. RURAL. They are making an exception to the ownership regulations for RURAL hospitals because they are more likely to be owned by Physicians. Do you understand what that means? This provision that gives you the “OMG’s” is actually allowing physicians to own MORE. Not less. And the whole section concerns itself with Physician referrals. Its to keep Physicians from referring patients to hospitals that they own a major share in. It’s called a conflict of interests. Remember the financial system meltdown? Remember when brokerage companies were directing people to invest in the company’s assets which may not have been the best fit for the investor? Remember how everyone lost money? Remember how everyone then freaked out? Well, this provision is in the bill to keep that from happening with doctors and hospitals.
    Did you even read this thing or did you just download your “concerns” from Foxnews.com?
