GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE: THE BAD NEWS
- Government-run Healthcare: Dead bodies left on ward for 8 hours in UK hospital
- Government-run Healthcare: UK’s medical records go online without consent
- Walgreens: no new Medicaid patients as of April 16
- Democrats bribe list to pass ObamaCare
- Less Breast Cancer Screening – Health Care Rationing Before Obamacare Becomes Law
- ObamaCare will cut $483 billion from Medicare (CBO, page 10) to finance the bill. Rations, anyone?
- Cuba’s medicine: Widespread practice of forced abortions as soon as there are any indications of problems with the fetus
- DemCare Bribe List

TOP 10 LIST WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE SENATE BILL (link)
1. HIGHER PREMIUMS: If you pay for your own insurance, your premiums will cost 10% to 13% more than if the bill didn’t pass (per CBO.) Insurance won’t be more affordable. 60% of the newly insured are being enrolled in Medicaid (the public program for the poor.)
2. MANDATORY & COSTLY: Buying insurance will be mandatory. A family earning $54,000 will be expected to pay $9,000 (17% of pre-tax income) for the premium, co-pays and deductibles (per CBO.) If you don’t enroll, the IRS will find you and penalize you (Senate bill, p. 345).
3. ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL HEALTH PLAN: Your benefit package will be prescribed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services…Whether you pay for it yourself or qualify for a subsidy, your benefits are the same….The goal is to discourage health consumption and differences based on ability to pay.
4. SIN TAX ON YOUR GENEROUS PLAN AT WORK: This is another equalizer to discourage some people from getting more than others. The Senate bill puts a 40% tax on Cadillac plans (p. 1,980). About one-fifth of employer-provided plans fall into that “luxury” category. The CBO predicts that employers will downgrade your coverage to avoid the tax or reduce your take home pay.
5. GOVERNMENT WILL CONTROL YOUR DOCTORS’ DECISIONS: The Senate bill bars doctors from participating in the private insurance system unless they implement the HHS regulations (p. 149).
6. HOSPITALS CLOSED TO SENIORS: The House and Senate bills slash payments to hospitals and other institutions that care for seniors. The chief actuary for Medicare, Richard Foster, warns that cuts in the House bill are so severe that some institutions may face severe losses or end their participation in Medicare (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, 11/13/09 report). (see Walgreens: no new Medicaid patients as of April 16)
7. BARE-BONES HOSPITAL CARE: Patients of all ages (and all incomes) will suffer when hospitals are in financial distress. Hospital budget cuts will mean shortages of nurses, equipment and cleaning staff.
8. FUTURE MEDICARE CUTS: The Senate bill establishes an Independent Medicare Advisory Commission to make automatic spending reductions…You won’t get as much care as people in Medicare currently get.
9. NEW SOCIAL AGENDA: Money is allocated for adult preparation activities, including lessons on positive self-esteem and relationship dynamics, friendships, dating (and) romantic involvement (Senate bill, p.612). There are also giveaways to immigrants. The Senate bill hands low-income legal immigrants government subsidies as soon as they get here, instead of waiting the five years Medicaid requires (Senate bill, p. 274).
10. YOUR MEDICAL DATA NOT PRIVATE: What happens in your doctor’s office must be recorded in an electronic data base that can send the information to insurers and other medical offices (Senate bill, p. 62-66). (see UK’s medical records go online without patients’ consent)

Cost Estimates

New Government Powers (WSJ)
• Sec. 59b (pp. 297-299) says that when you file your taxes, you must include proof that you are in a qualified plan. If not, you will be fined thousands of dollars. Illegal immigrants are exempt from this requirement.
• Sec. 224 (p. 118) provides that 18 months after the bill becomes law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services will decide what a “qualified plan” covers and how much you’ll be legally required to pay for it. That’s like a banker telling you to sign the loan agreement now, then filling in the interest rate and repayment terms 18 months later.
JAIL TIME & PENALTY: Buy a $15,000 Policy or Go to Jail: as explained by the letter from the Joint Committe on Taxation (PDF) and handwritten note
(H/t: IUSB vision, Politico, Drudge 11/6/09)
U.S. CODE TITLE 26 – INTERNAL REVENUE CODE:
26 USC Sec. 7201 Attempt to evade or defeat tax

Any person who willfully attempts in any manner to evade or
defeat any tax imposed by this title or the payment thereof shall,
in addition to other penalties provided by law, be guilty of a
felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than
$100,000 ($500,000 in the case of a corporation), or imprisoned not
more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution.

New Tax Hikes (Americans for Tax Reform (ATR))
• Individual Mandate Surtax (Page 296): about 2.5% of gross income
• Medicine Cabinet Tax (Page 324) for Non-prescription medications
• Excise Tax on Medical Devices (Page 339)
• $2500 Cap on Flexible Spending Accounts (Page 325): (currently uncapped)
• 20% additional tax on Non-Qualified HSA Distributions (Page 326)
• Surtax on Individuals and Small Businesses (Page 336): This would raise the top marginal tax rate in 2011 from 39.6% under current law to 45%—a new effective top rate.
• Denial of Tax Deduction for Employer Health Plans Coordinating with Medicare Part D (Page 327):
This would further erode private sector participation in delivery of Medicare services.
• 1099-MISC forms to be issued to corporations as well as persons for trade, exchange of property or business payments (Page 344)
• Up to 8% Employer Mandate Excise Tax (Page 275)
• Delays for 9 years the Worldwide Allocation of Interest (a corporate tax relief) (Page 345)
• Increases taxes on U.S. employers with overseas operations looking to avoid double taxation of earnings (Page 346)
• Empowers the IRS to disallow a perfectly legal tax deduction (Page 349)
• Raises standards on penalties on Publicly-traded partnerships and corporations with annual gross receipts in excess of $100 million (Page 357)

More negative items (GOP, Mike Pence)
• RAISES TAXES ON MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES
• MASSIVE CUTS TO MEDICARE BENEFITS FOR SENIORS
• NO PROTECTIONS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES ON 8% PENALTY
• INCREASES THE COST OF HEALTH INSURANCE:
New $2 billion tax on insurance policies will be passed on to patients, changes to the Medicare.
• USES GIMMICKS TO HIDE BUDGET-BUSTING COST, PILES UP DEBT ON FUTURE GENERATIONS. Democrats have simply swept costly provisions under the rug, including the $245 billion ‘doc fix.’
• IMPOSES JOB-KILLING EMPLOYER MANDATES
According to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s largest small business association, an employer mandate of this magnitude will disproportionately impact small businesses, triggering up to 1.6 million lost jobs. Two-thirds of those jobs would be shed by small businesses.
• FAVORS GOVERNMENT-RUN INSURANCE COMPANY
The bill provides billions in start-up funding for the government-run plan, and while it requires the plan to repay the money over time it does not require the plan to pay interest on this “loan.” This interest-free, taxpayer-subsidized loan is potentially worth millions of dollars and tilts the playing field in favor of the government-run plan.
• THREATENS CASH-STRAPPED STATES WITH UNFUNDED MANDATES by expanding Medicaid eligibility. Medicaid is financed through a federal-state partnership, but the bill dumps nearly 10% of the mandated expansion included in the bill onto the states.
• CREATES A NEW MONSTROSITY IN THE TAX CODE
Starting in 2011, Speaker Pelosi’s health care bill imposes a 5.4% tax on adjusted gross income above $500,000 for individuals ($1 million for married couples). Yet, the dollar amounts for which the tax kicks in are not indexed for inflation.
• WILL NOT REDUCE FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS

HOUSE HEALTH CARE BILL (H.R.3200)
EUTHANASIA:
-Government to mandate End of Life counseling & treatment (aka “Advance Care Planning Consultation”) on “the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration” (H.R.3200, Section 1233, page 424)
-Government order for end of life plans (p. 429)
GOVERNMENT INTRUSION:
-Government will have real-time access to individual’s finances, if elegible for specific medical service. National health care ID card (p.58)
-Government-established National Medical Device Registry (p. 1001)
-Government Marriage & Family therapy sessions (p. 489)
-Government will design and implement the Home Visitation Program for families with young children and families expecting children, parenting counseling is included (p. 838-p. 845)
LEFTISTS TO REGISTER INDIVIDUALS:
Government use of left-wing community groups, such as ACORN and AmeriCorps, to register individuals for the government health care plan (p. 95)
CAN’T SUE THE GOVERNMENT:
No company or business can sue the federal government for price fixing, which means that there will be no judicial review against a government monopoly of the health care industry (p. 124)
ILEGALS EXEMPT FROM TAXES & FINES:
Any nonresident alien is exempt from the individual taxes, insurance purchasing mandates, and fines which are required of every legal, U.S. citizens (p. 170).
RESTRICT ENROLLMENT:
Government will restrict the enrollment of special needs people (p. 354)

OBAMA SAID THE TERMINALLY ILL SHOULD NOT GET ADDITIONAL HEALTH CARE
Obama: “You just get into some very difficult moral issues” whether “society making those decisions to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they are terminally ill… The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care.” (Obama interview with David Leonhardt of the New York Times magazine on 4/28/09, whole interview)

Top 10 Myths of the U.S. Health Care:

1. Government Health Care Is More Efficient
2. We’re Spending Too Much on Health Care
3. Forty-Six Million Americans Can’t Get Health Care
4. High Drug Prices Drive Up Health Care Costs
5. Importing Drugs Would Reduce Health Care Costs
6. Universal Coverage Can Be Achieved by Forcing Everyone to Buy Insurance
7. Government Prevention Programs Reduce Health Care Costs
8. We Need More Government to Insure Poor Americans
9. Health Information Technology Is a Silver Bullet for Reducing Costs
10. Government-Run Health Care Systems in Other Countries are Better and Cheaper than America’s

Trojan horse: “Universal Health Care will bring equality”
FACT: STATE-RUN HEALTHCARE’S PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT
Why is Congress exempt from the government-run health care option? If socialized medicine is good enough to force on all Americans, why are members of Congress exempt from the state-run health care option, keeping their existing health plans and services on Capitol Hill?

FACT: THERE ARE MANY INSURANCE COMPANIES
but government regulation doesn’t allow customers to buy across state lines
Contrary of what Democrats say, there are many insurance companies already competing, here are some lists to give you an idea:
List of United States insurance companies, and here, by state
Trojan horse: “There are 47 million uninsured”
FACT: 8.2 MILLION ARE UNINSURED
8.2 million Americans are uninsured NOT 46 million as repeated by Obamistas:
○ They fail to mention the 46 million includes illegal immigrants, people who temporarily do not have insurance
(they might be between jobs), or do not want coverage.
○ The real number of uninsured is 8.2 million Americans who are without coverage for the long haul,
because they are too poor to purchase health care but earn too much to qualify for government assistance., BlueCross Assoc.
)
○ But these 8.2 million of Americans have access to care, because federal law forbids hospitals from
denying treatment to patients who show up at the emergency rooms.
9.7 million of the uninsured are not U.S. citizens (Census 2007)
click image to see 2007 Census report

click image to see 2007 Census report

● Some people say they were without insurance even if they only spent a portion of the year without coverage. (Census report, page 19)
Leftists like to cite 46 million uninsured to make it sound that 25% of U.S. citizens never, ever, have insurance coverage.
● The Census report list the number of people who are uninsured at a SPECIFIC POINT IN TIME during the year than for the entire year. (Census report, page 19)
The 47 Million Lie (cartoon by MichaelRamirez/IBD)

The 47 Million Lie (cartoon by MichaelRamirez/IBD)


● Approx. 5.7 million uninsured adults are “short-term uninsured,” (because they’re between jobs or recent college graduates. (BlueCross Assoc.)
● 21 million to 31 million people were uninsured for the ENTIRE YEAR (CBO)
● 14 million of the uninsured were eligible (but chose not) to enroll in government-sponsored health programs like Medicaid and SCHIP (State Children’s Health Insurance Program) (BlueCross Assoc.)
These people would be signed up for government insurance if they ever made it to the emergency room.
● More than 13 million uninsured adults and families have incomes of more than $50,000,
and many have access to affordable healthcare coverage (BlueCross Assoc.)
● In 2006, almost 18 million of the uninsured earned more than $50,000 a year. (Census, p.21)
● In 2006, almost 10 million of them have an income of more than $75,000 a year (Census, p.21)
In other words, 38 percent of the U.S. uninsured population earn more than $50,000 per year.
● Those making more than $75,000 per year are part of the fastest growing segment of the uninsured population.
(Top 10 Myths of the U.S. Health Care)
● 18.3 million of the uninsured were adults under 34 who think they are young and healthy and choose not to have coverage (Census 2007)

CANADA’s Government-run healthcare:
Dirty hospitals:
○ Floors littered with plastic seals that nurses take off IV packs & toss to the floor.
○ Bloody bandages are tossed into a corner to stay there for days.
○ Spilled food and drinks are left to be ground into the floors.
○ Bed linens are changed only after the patient is discharged.
○ Hospital staff ignore the filth on nearly every hospital surface.
High costs, poor quality:
○ Costs have escalated with little or no improvement since the Canada Health Act was first passed back in 1984.
○ 25% of Canadians (over 7 million) do not have access to a primary care physician.
○ More than 2 years wait times for routine life-saving procedures.
○ 3rd highest in costs out of 30 countries, while healthcare outcomes are a dismal 28th.
○ Half of Canada’s government budget is spent on healthcare with little improvement but unions want more spending.
○ The problem isn’t lack of money but lack of physicians.
○ Most individuals working within the Canadian healthcare system are demoralized to near catatonia.
○ Waste and bureaucratic gridlock currently plague the Canadian system.
ObamaCare will hurt your family:
○ Undermines Parental Authority
○ Puts Federal Bureaucrats in Control of Health Care Decisions
○ Shackles Families with Unknown Costs
○ Dumps Families into a Government-Run Health Plan (Employers would be incentivized to drop private coverage)
○ Disregards Convictions of Patients and Providers
○ Makes Bureaucrats Moral Decision-makers (end-of-life decisions, prenatal care, abortions)

Trojan horse: “ObamaCare will allow choice”
FACT: OBAMACARE WILL DESTROY COMPETITION
ObamaCare masterminds said how they wanted to destroy private insurance
Their goal: Private insurance will not be able to compete against government:
Their tactic: “to crowd out the private insurers by undercutting them on price. After all, the government can take losses on the plan for as long as they need to drive everyone else out of the market. Once that process completes, voila! Single-payer remains as the only option.” (Hat tip: Mark Levin)
Democrat Admits Obama Healthcare Plan Will Destroy Insurance Industry
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) Admits Obama Healthcare Plan Will Destroy Insurance Industry:
“I know many of you here today are single payer advocates and so am I … and those of us who are pushing for a public health insurance don’t disagree with this goal. This is not a principled fight. This is a fight about strategy for getting there and I believe we will.”
Liberals don’t want you to see this video
She said the public option is not a compromise, but a strategic step toward the single-payer system and the elimination of the private insurance industry…more
DemSchakowskyOnObamaHealthcare
ObamaCare will force every American to buy health insurance OR face fines/punishment
A public plan will leave workers with no private insurance & less freedom:
○ Many employers will have to drop private health coverage for their workers and dump them into the public plan.
○ Congress will be both the “umpire” who sets the rules and the “team owner” of the public plan.
○ Government will control what your doctor can do and how much he will be paid.
Trojan horse: “ObamaCare will reduce health care costs”
FACT: OBAMACARE WILL SPEND TRILLION DOLLARS TO “CONTROL COSTS” (oxymoron)
Estimated $245 Billion a year will cost the House health plan by 2019: At $1.3 trillion dollars over ten years, most Americans will think the House plan will cost about $130 billion a year. They have been mislead. In reality, by 2019 the House health plan will cost $245 billion a year.
How the CBO’s 10-Year time frame obscures the full cost of Obamacare (Hat tip: MichelleMalkin)
Obama to spend a trillion dollars to “control costs” (bet you it will be more)
CBO: ObamaCare cost in the trillion dollars & leave millions uninsured:
○ Deficits would increase by at least $1 trillion over the 2010-2019 period (doesn’t include major provisions of the bill)
○ Number of people who had coverage through an employer would decline by about 15 million (or roughly 10 percent), and coverage from other sources would fall by about 8 million, so the net decrease in the number of people uninsured would be about 16 million or 17 million.

FACT: KNOW THY OBAMISTA
OBAMACARE OBJECTIVE: To control Americans
REALITY OF GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE: Control, rationing, long waits, poor service…
TACTICS: Trojan horses, demagoguery, bullying, demonizing the opposition
Obamistas using same tactics that advocates of universal healthcare used in Canada to push their agenda:
– Vilifying doctors: to the point that many skilled physicians said “no thanks” and left for greener pastures (i.e., to the US)
– False promises: of containment of costs and improvement of quality, none of which anyone would argue against.

Canadians warn us: Government healthcare too good to be true
“Obamacare may sound like a good deal to someone who currently isn’t covered under any health insurance in the US. But in terms of an overall improvement in outcome vs. expenditure, it could prove to be one of the single most disastrous decisions ever made on behalf of Americans. In this case, the admonition that you should be careful what you wish for because you just might get it, is a warning that can’t be made strongly enough.”
