I remember not to long ago when our leaders denied when most of us asked if what he was pushing was "socialism" and they were quick to deny it was. Through all of the talk it appears that people have become numb to what it means and are willing to accept it because it is "better than the last eight years". People still do not realize that "change" can come in many forms both good and bad, they think that the mere word "change" is good...guess again...
Socialized healthcare is "government run health insurance! The very definition is found in any dictionary( before they change it).
Betsy McCaughey Exposes Obama Healthcare Lies
Page 425: "Counseling sessions" mandated for elderly to pressure them to DIE.And you CANNOT keep your present health plan. Obama lies about that, too.Also watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--DbIZlJyvo
Here are the issues that Obama's plan will provide:
• Page 22: Mandates audits of all employers that self-insure!
• Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!
• Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process) -NOT YOU!!!
• Page 42: The "Health Choices Commissioner" will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. None!!!
• Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services. WHO pays? the taxpayer-you and I...No new taxes?
• Page 58: Every person will be issued a National ID Healthcard.
• Page 59: The federal government will have direct, real-time access to ALL INDIVIDUAL BANK ACCOUNTS for electronic funds transfer. So what happens when the country is bankrupt...access to your accounts?
• Page 65: Taxpayers will subsidize all union retiree and community organizer health plans (read: SEIU, UAW and ACORN)
• Page 72: All private healthcare plans must conform to government rules to participate in a Healthcare Exchange. Isn't this government overreach unconstitutional? Isn't our government written by the people for the people not to be run by tyrants?
• Page 84: All private healthcare plans must participate in the Healthcare Exchange (i.e., total government control of private plans)
• Page 91: Government mandates linguistic infrastructure for services; translation:=20 illegal aliens
• Page 95: The Government will pay ACORN and AmeriCorps to sign up individuals for Government-run Health Care plan. Look what happened to the last election!
• Page 102: Those eligible for Medicaid will be automatically enrolled: you have no choice in the matter. Can you say "nanny state?"
• Page 124: No company can sue the government for price-fixing. No "judicial review" is permitted against the government monopoly. Put simply, private insurers will be crushed. The government no longer needs to be accountable to anyone INCLUDING it's citizens!!
• Page 127: The AMA sold doctors out: the government will set wages.There goes capitalism!!! Spread the wealth anyone? What happens when ther isn'tr any left, where will they get there money from?
• Page 145: An employer MUST auto-enroll employees into the government-run public plan. No alternatives. Can you say coersion?
• Page 126: Employers MUST pay healthcare bills for part-time employees AND their families. There goes small business and entrepenuership!!
• Page 149: Any employer with a payroll of $400K or more, who does not offer the public option, pays an 8% tax on payroll. But if they make less than 250k, does this apply? SURE does!!

• Page 167: Any individual who doesn't' have acceptable healthcare (according to the government) will be taxed 2.5% of income. Freedom to choose? I thought Obama said read my lips...no new taxes on those making less than 250k/year. Is he lying?
• Page 170: Any NON-RESIDENT alien is exempt from individual taxes (Americans will pay for them). Wait! illegal aliens get free medical care but don't have to pay taxes?Where does the money come from? The money he promised not to take from you!!!
• Page 195: Officers and employees of Government Healthcare Bureaucracy will have access to ALL American financial and personal records. What happened to the privacy act, HIPPA? Invasion of privacy! Constitutional violation perhaps?
• Page 203: "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax." Yes, it really says that. What should it be treated as...a bowl of cheerios? It depends of the meaning of the word "is" is"... If we change the name so that people do not believe it isn't a tax they will buy it hook, line and sinker!!!
• Page 239: Bill will reduce physician services for Medicaid. Seniors and the poor most affected." Don't get old! So what do we do with the old folks, euthanize them? (Hitler anyone?)
• Page 241: Doctors: no matter what specialty you have, you'll all be paid the same (thanks, AMA!) Free market captialism good bye, individual liberty and prosperity good bye...hell, why work hard if everyone else that sits on their butt reaps what you sew for your labors?
• Page 253: Government sets value of doctors' time, their professional judgment, etc. Maybe the government can tell me when to go to the bathroom, breathe, go to work, stay home or how and when to wipe my butt and the butt of the freeloader I am paying for with the fruit of my labors?
• Page 265: Government mandates and controls productivity for private healthcare industries. Government control? What happened to limited government?
