Tracking H.R. 3200: America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009

obama-2Wake up America!

Thomas Paine said, “The greatest tyrannies are always perpetrated in the name of the noblest causes”.

So it is with the Obama administration’s socialist power grab that is poorly disguised as affordable health care for everyone.  After all, what cause could be more “noble” than to secure every American’s right to free health care?

Problem is, I do not have a “right” to free health care.  But you have a right to expect me, not some inept government bureaucrat, to pay for goods and services (with your tax dollars) that my family and I consume, whether it is health care or school books.

Have you read H.R. 3200? You should ~ your life may depend on it. Click here to read House Resolution 3200 and here to read a partial list of questions that many have concerning this dangerous piece of legislation.  After you read it, I’m sure you will have many more questions.

    “Dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is about the government’s coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development.
    It’s outlined in sections 440 and 1904 of the House bill (Page 838), under the heading “home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children.” The programs (provided via grants to states) would educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills.

    You can bet your bottom dollar it’ll be a cold day in **** before a gov’t agent comes into MY home and “educates” me on my kids’ child development and my parenting skills!

  2. wow. Thanks for all the great links. Everyone needs to get smart on this topic very soon! Great post.

  3. What people forget (or don’t know) is that the US healthcare system used to be the envy of the world BEFORE government intervention and mandates. Managed care (HMOs) came about because of Congress in the 1st place in the 70s or 80s. What did that do? Drove up the prices and lowered the quality of care. It put a layer of bureaucracy that didn’t exist before. Insurance companies make some of the most outrageous profits imaginable. (I have nothing against people making money, but it gets to a point that is ludicrous (600 million for one person?). What if we had a true free market health care system…where your insurance was not linked to your employment and you could choose between a multitude of insurers competing for your business? You could choose a plan that covered what you wanted, with a deductible at the level you chose. Overall, health care costs would come way down and people would be much happier! People should also get tax credits (the entire federal income tax is wrong, but we are stuck with it at the moment unless you are willing to go to jail for your civil disobedience) to help offset the costs of premiums. This would be a much smarter system. But alas, the government wouldn’t have total control and be able to dole out to special interests, so I don’t see this happening. Yes, there would still be some uninsured…but that’s what we have charity and prop bono for. When people don’t feel unfairly overburdened, they are much more charitable. It’s when people have money stolen from them (taxes) and spread around to others that the spirit of generosity suffers.
