Health Care - Again!

It cannot be emphasized enough what the American people are going to be in for if Health care passes the Senate as anything similar to what was passed by the House of Representatives.  I have listed the things that are the most onerous in the House bill. Think about it, I mean really think about it. The government is going to be able to send you to jail, fine you, and tax you if you don't get health insurance? If this passes the government is going to be able to tell you what you can eat, what you can drink, whether you are physically fit enough, or young enough to get medical treatment, and whether you live or die. The government can tell you whether you will live or die???? There are not words strong enough to describe how outrageous this would be. For God's sake, WAKE UP!!!!, and call your Senators and tell them, NO!, NO!, NO!.

Here are some of the things you will be faced with!

1.  A $400 billion cut in Medicare.

2.  An inevitable scarcity of healthcare that will result from the
      addition of 35 million new patients, with no new doctors or

3.  A fine on the uninsured of 2.5 percent of their income, if they
      don't buy insurance.

4.  The high cost of these mandatory insurance policies ($15,000
      per family).

5.  The low level of subsidy available for the uninsured (only after
      they pay 8-12 percent of their incomes).

6.  The likelihood of a $1,700 increase in the average family's

7.  The possibility of up to five years in prison for failing to buy
      insurance or pay the fine.

8.  The taxation of medical devices like pacemakers, wheelchairs,
      prosthetic limbs, hearing aids, etc.

9.  The tax on sick people (increasing the threshold for deducting
      medical expenses from 7.5 percent to 10 percent of income.

10. The additional fiscal burden on the states of the increase in
       Medicaid eligibility

11. The 40 percent tax on private health insurance premiums that
       will affect households earning more than $75,000 by the fifth
       year of the plan. 

12. Government bureaucrats (Death panels), not you or your
       doctor, that will decide if it is cost efficient for you or your
       loved ones to receive treatment, or are left to die without it.
