10 Ways Obamacare Takes Away Your Freedom
Dr. Bill Stillwell
Old Benny Franklin once said that people willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both. Now that the so-called Health Care Reform Bill has passed and been signed by the President, we are starting to find out whats actually in the bill.
Remember that Pelosi, in an inadvertent slip about ten days ago said, We need to pass the bill, so people can see whats in it. Less than 20% of the esteemed 535 members of Congress actually read any part of the bill (with almost 90% of the readers being Republican), but yet they voted to trash the best medical system in the world, in favor of a philosophy that has been discredited in every place it has been tried. They voted to make it mandatory for everyone in the United States to participate in their misguided and ultimately bankrupting systemexcept for the President and themselves. They get to keep what Obama labeled Cadillac Plans. They exempted themselves from the very coverage that they are telling us is a moral imperative (according to the Washington Post). And true to form, they have started to demonize those with the courage to oppose the plan, because they actually think that the American people are stupid. (Dont think so? Try watching Bill Maher on HBOor Jon Stewartits their mantra.) And the list wouldnt be complete without the idiots at MSNBC, led by Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Tingle Matthews. So here are a few facts and there will be more coming out every day, as the Democrats actually have to show the legislation in its entirety, now that it has become law. 1) Say youre young, and dont want health insurance. You are starting a small business and need to minimize expenses, and one way to do that is to forego health insurance. No way. You must pay $750 annually for the privilege. (Section 1501) 2) You are young and healthy and want to pay for insurance that reflects that status? No dice. Youll have to pay for premiums that cover not only you, but also the guy who smokes three packs a day, drinks a gallon of whiskey and eats chicken fat off the floor. (Section 2701) 3) You would like to pay less in premiums, by buying insurance that has lifetime, or annual limits on coverage? No can do. Health insurers will be forbidden to write such a policy. (Section 2711) 4) Say you like a cheaper policy, because it doesnt cover preventative care, or requires cost sharing? Nope, not allowed. (Section 2712) 5) Say youre an employer and you would like to offer coverage that doesnt allow your employees slacker kids to stay on the policy until theyre 26? Too bad. (Section 2714) 6) Youre a single guy without kids? How sad. Youre a woman who doesnt want children. Tough luck. You will pay for all services, regardless of status. (Section 1302) 7) You dont drink? Your policy must cover substance abuse. (Section 1302) 8) Youre an employer in the small group insurance market and want to offer a high deductible policy for lower premiums? Not going to happen. (Section 1302) 9) If you want cosmetic surgery for any reasonsay breast reconstruction because of cancer surgery. Youll now be taxed an additional 5%. (Section 9017) 10) Youll have to pay an additional 3.8% tax if you make over $250,000 as a couple and $200,000 if youre single. (Section 1402) This is just the tip of the iceberg, because the bill has 2700 pages and it will take experts months to ferret out all the things Obama, Pelosi and Reid didnt want to tell anyone and with very good reason. It all boils down to a very simple fact. The government cant run the Post Office well, and nobodys health is at stake there. The Veterans Hospitals are among the worst in the country. If you really want a look at government healthcare, go take a look at how theyre run. That is how your hospital will run in the future. We now have a moral imperative to take care of ourselves. We can only hope that this horrible bill can be repealed, or declared unconstitutional. And by the way, in the immigration bill being designed at this moment. 12 million more people will be added to the numbers. Health Reform was never about health care. It was about buying Democratic votes in the next election from illegal immigrants, who will be voter eligible. Im going to live another 38 years, just out of spite. I want to be here in 10 years, when there has not been a nickel saved, much less $138 billion. I want to be here, just to say, I told you so when this piece of crap collapses under its own weight, when people are standing in line for hours to see a doctor and when mortality rates go up, like they have in other countries that have adopted this heresy. Thats the Obama Legacy. Right under his picture should be a note that says, I destroyed the best health care system in the world.
