You may recall that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that we had to pass the healthcare bill and then read it to find out what was in it. The bill passed and now we are finding out the things that the Democrats did NOT want to tell us about ObamaCare. We can provide the specific page numbers of HR 3200, if you so request. Here are several details that were never publicized:
- The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
- 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.
- 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).
- The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax.
- Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.
- Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age. At age 76, if you need it, you are NOT eligible for cancer treatment!!!
- The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
- 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.
- The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
- This bill will not apply to members of Congress.
Action To Take
Don't take my word for it, READ the legislation THEN demand that your representatives REPEAL IT!
