little snippet of what American Health Care will look like

This is a copy and paste job from a friend who actually read/is reading the bill

 

If you had read the former you'd note:

As of August 10th Obama’s heath care proposal was 1017 pages

Page 16: States that if you have insurance at the time of the bill becoming law and change, you will be required to take a similar plan. If that is not available, you will be required to take the "public option."

Page 22: Mandates audits of all employers that self-insure.

Page 29: Admits that your health care will be rationed.

Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process.)

Page 42: The "Health Choices Commission" will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. None.

Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services.

Page 58: Every person will be issued a national ID health card.

Page 59: The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.

Page 65: Taxpayers will subsidize all union retiree and community organizer health plans (read: SEIU, UAW and ACORN)

Page 72: All private health care plans must conform to government rules to participate in a Health Care Exchange.

Page 84: All private health care plans must participate in the Health Care Exchange (i.e., total government control of private plans)

Page 91: Government mandates linguistic infrastructure for services. Translation: illegal aliens

Page 95: The government will pay ACORN and Americorps to sign up individuals for government-run health care plan.

Page 102: Those eligible for Medicaid will be automatically enrolled: you have no choice in the matter.

Page 124: No company can sue the government for price-fixing. No judicial review is permitted against the government monopoly. Put simply, private insurers will be crushed.

Page 127: The AMA has sold doctors out: the government will set wages.

Page 145: An employer must auto-enroll employees into the government-run public plan. No alternatives.

Page 126: Employers must pay health care bills for part-time employees and their families.

Page 149: Any employer with a payroll of $400K or more, who does not offer the public option, pays an 8% tax on payroll.

Page 150: Any employer with a payroll of $250K-400K or more, who does not offer the public option, pays a 2 to 6% tax on payroll.

Page 167: Any individual who doesn't' have acceptable health care (according to the government) will be taxed 2.5% of income.

Page 170: Any non-resident alien is exempt from individual taxes (Americans will pay for them.)

Page 195: Officers and employees of government health care bureaucracy will have access to all American financial and personal records.

Page 203: "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax." Yes, it really says that.

Page 239: Bill will reduce physician services for Medicaid. Seniors and the poor most affected.

Page 241: Doctors: no matter what speciality you have, you'll all be paid the same (thanks, AMA!)

Page 253: Government sets the value of doctors' time, their professional judgment, etc.

Page 265: Government mandates and controls productivity for private health care industries.

Page 268: Government regulates rental and purchase of power-driven wheelchairs.

Page 272: Cancer patients: welcome to the wonderful world of rationing.

Page 280: Hospitals will be penalized for what the government deems preventable re-admissions.

Page 298: Doctors: if you treat a patient during an initial admission that results in a readmission, you will be penalized by the government.

Page 317: Doctors: you are now prohibited for owning and investing in health care companies.

Page 318: Prohibition on hospital expansion. Hospitals cannot expand without government approval.

Page 321: Hospital expansion hinges on "community" input: in other words, yet another payoff for ACORN.

Page 335: Government mandates establishment of outcome-based measures: i.e., rationing.

Page 341: Government has authority to disqualify Medicare Advantage Plans, HMOs, etc.

Page 354: Government will restrict enrollment of special needs individuals.

Page 379: More bureaucracy: Telehealth Advisory Committee (health care by phone).

Page 425: More bureaucracy: Advance Care Planning Consult: senior citizens, assisted suicide, euthanasia?

Page 425: Government will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. Mandatory. Appears to lock in estate taxes ahead of time.

Page 425: Government provides approved list of end-of-life resources, guiding you in death.

Page 427: Government mandates program that orders end-of-life treatment. The government dictates how your life ends.

Page 429: Advance Care Planning Consult will be used to dictate treatment as patient's health deteriorates. This can include an order for "end-of-life" plans. An order from the government.

Page 430: Government will decide what level of treatments you may have at end-of-life.

Page 469: "Community-based Home Medical Services" (more payoffs for ACORN.)

Page 472: Payments to "community-based organizations." (more payoffs for ACORN.)

Page 489: Government will cover marriage and family therapy. Government intervenes in your marriage.

Page 494: Government will cover mental health services: defining, creating and rationing those services.

Yikes

Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process.)
