Obama's Health Care Bill?
I just want to know your point of view.

Democrats and real Americans are you really aware of your BO-health care bill?
** Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
** Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).
** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)
** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.
** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age.
** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counceling.)
** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
Sec. 1005. Implementation funding. Provides ($1 billion) to the Secretary of Health and Human Services to finance the administrative costs of implementing health insurance reform.(Thats a lot of money thrown down the drain)
Sec. 1303. CMS-IRS data match to identify fraudulent providers. Allows the Secretary of Treasury to share IRS data with HHS employees.
Sec. 1401. High-cost plan excise tax. Reduces the revenue collected by the tax by 80 percent. This is achieved by: increasing the dollar thresholds to $10,200 for single coverage and $27,500 for family coverage ($11,850 and $30,950 for retirees and employees in high risk professions)
Section 2102. Student Financial Assistance. This section provides $13.5 billion in mandatory appropriations to the Federal Pell Grant program.(what does this have to do with health care)
Section 2104. Investment in Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions. This section amends section 371(b) of the Higher Education Act by extending funding for programs under this section created under the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 for programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and minority-serving institutions through 2019, including programs that help low-income students attain degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics by the following annual amounts: $100 million to Hispanic Serving Institutions, $85 million to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, $15 million to Predominantly Black Institutions, $30 million to Tribal Colleges and Universities, $15 million to Alaska, Hawaiian Native Institutions, $5 million to Asian American and Pacific Islander Institutions, and $5 million to Native American non-tribal serving institutions.(Or this)
Are there penalties if you don't buy insurance?
If you ignore this mandate and don’t get health insurance, you’ll have to pay a tax penalty to the federal government, beginning in 2014. This fine starts fairly small, but by the time it is fully phased in, in 2016, it is substantial.
An insurance-less person would have to pony up whichever is greater: $695 for each uninsured family member, up to a maximum of $2,085; or 2.5 percent of household income.
There are exceptions. Certain people with religious objections would not have to get health insurance. Nor would American Indians, illegal immigrants, or people in prison.(They will be covered by the tax payers)
All of the above should give you the point blank ammo you need to support your opposition to Obamacare. Please send this information on to all of your email contacts.

Not for it, I would have liked to see change or reform that's for sure, but not with this bill, this bill will raise taxes on most of us...of the 30 million it will cover that currently don't have insurance , 15 million will be Medicaid..who do you think is going to pay for that? Yes that's right we are. I also think it smells very funny when you had to buy or give deals to get your own party on board for this bill. Also why are there 38 states ready to file suit against the Federal Gov the minute this bill is passed. And yes the CBO scored this bill well, meaning it will reduce the deficit in ten years, but that is because they are going to tax us for the first 4 years before most of what's in the bill starts. And they did not put in the Doctor fix, which adds up to almost 250 billion dollars, had they put that in the bill we would have had a deficit not the other way around. Lots of things to think about don't you think?

Obama and the liberals income. Obama's time table is to very own and administration the folk...what better way than to have human beings out of artwork and observing the government/ can then administration them, having their well-being care in his hands he can very own them. This well-being care isn't something yet inhabitants administration ie, abortions and reducing well-being reward for the elderly. whilst anyone is down and out it would not take plenty to get them to comply with what's being dictated to them. the interior maximum sector won't be able to create jobs if the Obama administration will enhance their taxes, well-being care coverage and unions dictate how they run their business enterprise. Cap and commerce is what's destroying business enterprise's. This administration bailed out those motor vehicle makers and a few despatched the artwork in another usa, if Obama had cared relating to the yank human beings this would not have been allowed because they have been given a bail out.

It will scam money for awhile but be killed in the end through the courts. It's not legal and they are waiting to kill it the second it gets approved. Good thing it covers abortion cause it will be aborted.

It's a start in the right direction. The next step is to introduce a public option.
