Someone is actually reading the Healthcare bill and tweeting about it - via Free Republic:
Peter Fleckstein (aka Fleckman) is reading it and has been posting on Twitter his findings.
I've selected a few alarming points highlighted by Peter Fleckstein:
Pg 58HC Bill - Govt will have real-time access 2 individs finances & a National ID Healthcard will b issued! Ugh, recall the boasting from Hillarycare that within one year, everyone will have a national health card.
pg 124 lines 24-25 HC No company can sue GOVT on price fixing. No "judicial review" against Govt Monop Same goes for patients with malpractice suits...
pg 127 Lines 1-16 HC Bill - Doctors/ #AMA - The Govt will tell YOU what u can make. That $100,000 plus spent on medical school tuition just went down the drain.
Pg 145 Line 15-17 An Employer MUST auto enroll employees into pub opt plan. NO CHOICE
Pg 126 Lines 22-25 Employers MUST pay 4 HC 4 part time employees AND their families.
Pg 149 Lines 16-24 ANY Emplyr w payroll 400k & above who does not prov. pub opt. pays 8% tax on all payroll
pg 150 Lines 9-13 Biz w payroll btw 251k & 400k who doesnt prov. pub. opt pays 2-6% tax on all payroll So much for keeping the insurance you have right now.
Pg 167 Lines 18-23 ANY individual who doesnt have acceptable HC accrdng 2 Govt will be taxed 2.5% of inc I'd like to see them apply this tax to the homeless guy that camps outside my parking garage.
Page 280 Sec 1151 The Govt will penalize hospitals 4 what Govt deems preventable readmissions. Using POA rules, hospitals will not admit the patient, just ship them elsewhere to avoid this penalty.
Check out the GOP Senate Doctor's Show - ever wonder why Democrat docs in Congress have been silent in their support of Obamacare??
