Just A Word About The Healthcare Takeover Bill

We discuss history here so . . . since the statists are calling this bill "historic" our parliamentarian here at the OVB has ruled the topic germane. Therefore, we shall proceed without further debate.  Doctor Elaina George exposes just some of the lies in this historic "reform" bill . . .

1.  You won’t be able to be kicked off of your insurance when you really need it
  • Turns out that the insurance companies CAN kick you off if they pay a fine. It is not hard to imagine that an insurance company will figure out pretty quickly that it would be cheaper to pay the fine than to pay for coverage of a long term chronic illness.
Read more examples of how you've been lied to here. It's quite historic.

**Update - It has now come to light that both the President and his family, as well as members of Congress and their staff, are exempted from the "healthcare" bill. Elitism on display.

Thanks for this great synopsis. I'm sure there are many more problems to be revealed in this legislation...once people actually read it. www.satisfiedsole.com

Sorry, I refuse to post any link that is misleading on this topic. It's just too important. That site led a paragraph with . . .

"The Congressional Budget Office estimated . . ."

The automatically discredits that site's "objectivity." The CBO, though ostensibly non-partisan, has gotten so many projections wrong that they're not credible. They simply take the language in the bill, assume the bill is correct in its intent and ends, and then project out. The bill itself could (and often is) Alice in Wonderland fairy tales, but the CBO takes it at face value. In other words, Garbage in, Garbage out. Sorry, no sale. You'll have to do better than that.

Mr. Williams:

I'm curious to know what your thoughts are concerning the States legal challenge to the health care bill. Do you think it could be successfully challenged in court, or are we just whistling past the graveyard?

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

RR: Successfully challenged? Possible, especially if you get more and more states participating. There are, as you are likely aware, a number of constitutional issues surrounding the bill. We shall see.
