    Big payoffs to unions, free healthcare to illegal aliens, death panels for Americans, limits and rationing to Americans… it's ALL in the bill (HR 32000). And remember, folks. We get taxed immediately but none of these wonderful "benefits" actually kick in for FOUR YEARS! So even if you liked this communist paradise you won't get it for almost half the decade. It makes you wonder... how many dead people will Democrats be responsible for since this bill doesn't kick in for so long, eh? See the video at Publiusforum.com...

    WASHINGTON — As if it were not complicated enough, the debate over health care in Congress is becoming a battlefield in the fight over abortion. Abortion opponents in both the House and the Senate are seeking to block the millions of middle- and lower-income people who might receive federal insurance subsidies to help them buy health coverage from using the money on plans that cover abortion. And the abortion opponents are getting enough support from moderate Democrats that both sides say the outcome is too close to call. Opponents of abortion cite as precedent a 30-year-old ban on the use...

    H.R. 3200 would enact a series of synergistic causal sequences. This would start with an instantaneous increase in demand as new consumers enter the system or existing consumers demand more medical goods and services. Clinics, practices, and hospitals currently rely on higher private insurance payouts to make up for the low reimbursement rates from Medicare. Under the new system, they would not receive it, either from the government plan or the private insurers. The government will not pay it. Insurance companies, required to cover pre-existing conditions, maintain coverage unconditionally, and cap premiums, will have no choice but to cut payments...

    THE House of Repre sentatives has re buked Rep. Joe Wil son (R-SC) for shouting out, "You lie!" during President Obama's speech to Congress last week. It was certainly a breach of decorum and House rules -- but it's well worth noting that Wilson had a substantial point. What prompted the exclamation, after all, was the president's assertion: "There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This too is false." If only. In fact, the House's lead health-reform bill (HR 3200), would give taxpayer-paid insurance to illegal aliens.

    In general, statists like Obama have been trying for decades to impose government run healthcare so that they can control everyone’s lives. No matter how limited the reach of any initial, enabling legislation, they will never stop trying to reach their basic goals – through future amendments, executive directives, and interpretations and decisions of regulators, and their goals are to put everyone under government care and include illegals and abortion. 1. Despite assurances from Obama on covering illegals and abortion, Democrats have put forth deceptive language in their bills that appear to prevent this coverage, but they have soundly defeated...

    I have looked through the incomprehensible HR 3200 and can find no discernable reference to private long term care health insurance. However, my read suggests that ObamaCare will also end all private LTC insurance policies and replace them with ... nothing. Since LTC premiums are adjusted severy several years tro reflect a person's age, the bill suggests that once that occurs your LTC insurance is automatically canceled and you get ... nothing. You get to die at home. Quickly. Anyone out there who has deciphered ObamaCare enough to clarify this?

In particular, the report analyzes specific provisions in H.R. 3200, and whether there are eligibility requirements for noncitizens in the provisions. Within the bill, noncitizens are treated differently in several provisions. In 2008, there were approximately 37.3 million foreign-born persons in the United States. The foreign-born population was comprised of approximately 15.1 million naturalized U.S. citizens and 22.2 million noncitizens. H.R. 3200 includes an individual mandate to have health insurance, with tax penalties for noncompliance. Individuals who do not maintain acceptable health...

First, he should announce that he will discard the 1,018-page health bill drafted in the House of Representatives and replace it with a 20-page bill in plain English. Twenty pages should be sufficient. The framers of the US Constitution established an entire federal government in 18 pages. One reason for the rancor over the current health bill is that few people, including members of Congress, know what it says. When those who have read it point to its dangerous provisions, the bill's defenders offer...

    "In order to receive minimal attention by doctors and nursing personnel, patients had to pay bribes. I even witnessed a case of a "nonpaying" patient who died trying to reach a lavatory at the end of the long corridor after brain surgery. Anesthesia was usually "not available" for abortions or minor ear, nose, throat, and skin surgeries. This was used as a means of extortion by unscrupulous medical bureaucrats." "Slavery certainly 'reduced costs' of labor, 'eliminated the waste' of bargaining for wages, and avoided 'unnecessary duplication and parallelism'." "To improve the statistics concerning the numbers of people dying within the...
  • Protesters take to street again opposing Giffords

    SIERRA VISTA — Although there were no recall petitions at a Saturday rally seeking to oust Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from office before her term is up in January 2011, that potential still exists, an organizer said. Joanne Daley, who has helped put together three rallies in the past few weeks, said a lawyer continues to look into the issue. That’s occurring even though the Arizona assistant secretary of state said a 1973 state law allowing recall of a Congress member will not be accepted on Capitol Hill. Noting that 17 other states allow for congressional recall, although none...

    (Text of Amendments and Votes @ link) Democrats Refuse to Let Americans Keep the Insurance They Have and Like 2 out of 3 will lose their health insurance Democrats voted against an amendment offered by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to strike the government-run plan. When speaking before the American Medical Association, President Obama stated that, “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.” However, the Democrats government-run plan breaks this promise. According to two independent studies: The government-run plan will result in...
  • Bowling for Death Panels: Euthanasia Group Behind "End-of-Life" Counseling

    Although President Obama and liberal Congressional Democrats have denounced claims that the health care reform establishes "death panels," it does not help reassure the American public that the nation's foremost pro-euthanasia group is actively pushing "end-of-life counseling" as a centerpiece of health-care reforms. Compassion & Choices, a rebranding of the former Hemlock Society, aggressively lobbies to legalize euthanasia as a "human right" by means of legislation and the judicial system. But the group has revealed that it is a major player behind incorporating a measure (sec. 1233) of the "American Affordable Choices Act of 2009" (HR 3200) that would pay...
  • Democratic House Leaders Conceal Their Health Bill Covers Illegal Aliens

    08/22/2009 4:26:43 PM PDT · by T.L.Sink · 58 replies · 2,831+ views
    The House bill actually raises more questions than it resolves with respect to whether the bill will burden American taxpayers by giving health care benefits to legal and illegal aliens. Under Welfare Reform, legal aliens are required to wait five years before becoming eligible for welfare or other taxpayer funded benefits. The House bill eliminates that 5-year waiting period. Accordingly, legal aliens will become immediately eligible for this government handout paid for by American taxpayers. Illegal aliens are also likely to qualify for this affordability credit. This is because there are NO provisions that would prevent illegals from participating in...

    “HR 3200: Section 1401, Page 503: The Government will build a central electronic database of ALL private medical records and may secure directly from any agency or department information necessary to carry-out the provisions of this Bill…” While President Obama’s Healthcare Plan contains a multitude of horrors, perhaps the worst is making available online to your local town government and police your complete personal records. Do not be calmed by assurances that these records will be assiduously protected and available only to proper channels for the purpose of ensuring your health. Let me suggest that this private information will be...
  • Catholic Bishops Tell House: Health-Care Bill is ‘Unacceptable’ Due to Pro-Abortion Mandates

    The nation’s Catholic bishops have told Congress that they oppose H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act, as it currently stands, because the health-care reform bill would mandate funding and insurance coverage for abortion. In an August 11 letter to members of the House of Representatives, Cardinal Justin Rigali, chairman of the pro-life committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (U.S.C.C.B.), told lawmakers that health-care reform must “respect human life and rights of conscience in the context of abortion.” “Much-needed reform must not become a vehicle for promoting an ‘abortion rights’ agenda or reversing longstanding policies against federal funding...

    We already knew this, thanks to Rep. Zoe Lofgren and Barack Obama himself, but it’s nice to get confirmation from those fine folks at Factcheck.org — an Annenberg project, no less. After Obama tried to paint it as a lie, the National Right to Life Committee insisted that ObamaCare would use taxpayer money to fund abortions. It turns out that they were right: The truth is that bills now before Congress don’t require federal money to be used for supporting abortion coverage. So the president is right to that limited extent. But it’s equally true that House and Senate legislation...

    The America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, HR 3200 sponsored by John Dingell, D-MI, establishes a huge new bureaucracy within the executive branch, the Health Choices Administration which is led by a Commissioner with at least 22 clearly enumerated powers and responsibilities, including: 1 The establishment of qualified health benefits plan QHBP standards. 2 The establishment and operation of a Health Insurance Exchange. 3 The administration of individual affordability credits. 4 Promoting accountability of all QHBP offering entities in meeting Federal health insurance requirements. 5 Conducting audits (at the expense of the QHBP) of qualified health benefits plan compliance....

    To follow up on Greg's post below, LifeNews is reporting that Title V of HR 3200, Subtitle B, called "School-Based Health Clinics" in the House "health reform bill" would provide for government funded "health clinics" staffed by Planned Parenthood in or near public schools. In other words, federally-funded abortion clinics to make sure high school girls aren't, in the President's words, "punished with a baby."

    The Provocateur ^ | 08/21/2009 | Mike Volpe
    In the current House health care bill, there are 53 new regulators. Let me say that again, the House health care bill creates 53 NEW REGULATORS. The implications of this spread throughout health care reform and the debate surrounding it. In fact, if Conservatives want to keep things simple then they only need to repeat, 53 new regulators, over and over again in any debate. That's because with 53 new regulators everything else is moot. When President Obama says that we'll be able to keep our current insurance that's only if all of the 53 new regulators approve of our...

    The health care reform bills Congress is considering would not require people who sign up for government health care programs to verify their eligibility. That opens the door for millions of illegal aliens and other non-citizens to receive medical services paid for by taxpayers, a panel of experts from the conservative Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and the Heritage Foundation said Wednesday. Title II, Substitle C, Section 246 of the House health care bill (H.R. 3200) stipulates "no federal payment for undocumented aliens." The Senate Bill states that beneficiaries of federal health care programs must be a citizen or an...
