"Health Care Reform" = Mandatory Health Insurance And Government Control Over Your Health Decisions

Thursday, July 02, 2009 Posted by Shattered Paradigm

The majority of Americans, and especially young Americans, seem to be very enthusiastic about the health care reforms proposed by Barack Obama and the Democrats. However, what most Americans do not realize is that "health care reform" is not going to mean free health care. Instead, it is going to mean that you are forced to buy health insurance, it is going to mean that the federal government will control your health decisions and it is even going to mean that the federal government is going to decide who lives and who dies.

Under the horrific health care bill unveiled by Democrats on Thursday, Americans who refuse to buy health insurance will be hit with heavy fines of more than $1,000. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that these draconian fines will raise around 36 billion dollars over 10 years.

So all Americans will now be forced to hand their money over to greedy health insurance companies.

But when you get sick and need surgery the health insurance company will be there for you, right?


Just ask anyone who has tangled with a health insurance company how horrible they can be. They will do anything to squeeze out of paying a bill if they think they can get away with it.

Government run health care also means mandatory vaccinations. The CDC is now saying that the U.S. may need 600 million doses of swine flu vaccine in order to vaccinate every man, woman and child in the United States this fall.

In the future, if your national health record shows that you have not taken the mandatory vaccines, then you will not be able to get anymore health care until you do.

But there are even more frightening health care changes that the Congress passed earlier this year.

The truth is that the Democrats inserted provisions into one of the "stimulus" bills that gave the federal government COMPLETE control over your health care under a nationalized health care plan.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, otherwise known as "the economic stimulus bill" contained almost all of the key elements of Tom Daschle's ideal nationalized health care system that he outlined in his 2008 book, Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.

In his book, Daschle wrote that doctors will have to “learn to operate less like solo practitioners” and be willing to accept mandatory government controls and guidelines.

Guess what?

That is precisely what the bill forces doctors to do.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 created a brand new bureaucracy called the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology. This new government organization will monitor all medical treatments to make sure that your doctor is prescribing the exact drugs and medical treatments that the federal government believes are "appropriate" and "cost effective".

The bill also had a provision that hospitals and doctors which are not “meaningful users” of the new system will face serious penalties. The bill also says that the Secretary of Health and Human Service will be permitted to impose "more stringent measures of meaningful use over time".

The bill also radically changed the way that the health care system treats the elderly.

Currently, Medicare pays for medical treatments for the elderly that are considered to safe and effective.

That is all changing now.

Now, a cost effectiveness standard set by a Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research will apply.

The goal of this "council" is to actually slow the development and use of new medications and treatments because they are driving up medical costs.

In her recent editorial, Betsy McCaughey described Daschle's attitude towards the elderly in his book:

He praises Europeans for being more willing to accept “hopeless diagnoses” and “forgo experimental treatments,” and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system.

She also goes on to describe how this new "council" would actually make choices to deny health care to elderly patients if they don't have enough "productive" years left:

The Federal Council is modeled after a U.K. board discussed in Daschle’s book. This board approves or rejects treatments using a formula that divides the cost of the treatment by the number of years the patient is likely to benefit. Treatments for younger patients are more often approved than treatments for diseases that affect the elderly, such as osteoporosis.

Do you understand what that means?

It means that now the United States government decides who lives and who dies.

But the American people cheered on Obama and the Democrats as they passed a horrible bill that the vast majority of them did not even read.

So after reading all of this, do you still want "health care reform"? Feel free to post your opinion below.....

    There are so many points of entry into this excellent, brief and accurate article that I hardly know where to begin.
    Perhaps the best place is by introducing myself: I am the Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation, www.HealthFreedomUSA.org. Our organization believes fervently that Health Freedom IS Our First Freedom and that those whose bodies, food and healthcare options are controlled should be called by their real name: Slaves.
    Re: Mandatory vaccinations for Swine Flu (a subset of mandatory vaccinations, but an imminent one that must be dealt with), please visit http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=2752 to read our White Paper, "Stay Home - Stay ALive" on the issue of self-shielding and then take the action step there, http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=27275, to demand the right to a self-shielding choice in addition to the one that federal and state laws now offer in the event of a Pandemic Emergency declaration: either accept the unsafe, untested and unnecessary Swine Flu vaccination (which evidence suggests will be a bioweapon in itself) or accept mandatory incarceration. This is, obviously, no choice.
    Please join the Mouse Warriors of the Natural Solutions Foundation on insisting on our health AND freedom.
    Yours in health and freedom,

    If you have no money to pay the $1000 fine, will you be sent to jail? In my case, I’m not on any payroll, so I have no salary and no employer. My health is excellent, I have a very healthy lifestyle and no desire to buy health insurance or to spend time in hospitals infested with resistant viruses.

    Why aren't more people upset by mandatory health "care"? Mandatory vaccinations are scary. Imposing a fine on people who choose not to accept the governments version of healthcare is worse. What if the government decides how many children are best for our body? If we have more than the "best" amount, would we be refused healthcare with our next child? Would we ever be forced into mandatory abortions? These things may sound ridiculous to us now, but we are dealing with a slippery slope here. The government exists for the people--we do not exist for them! We make the government's choices--we are the voters--they DO NOT make choices for us! After years of being a Republican, I'm considering becoming a libertarian just to have the hope of regaining my freedom at some point.

    i was shocked by this suggestion at first when i understood what it actually meant. it just make no sense, as dr. granville mentioned here, that if i don't want to buy health insurance- to be fined like that. hope things will improve later on.
