Default MOre health care bill nonsense

Health care bill passed and you got screwed and lied to. HAHA

o Establishes a government-run health program and controls care through the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research, which was created through buried language in the Stimulus Bill (H.R.1), and was awarded a center under the new bill;

o Demands all American citizens acquire health insurance and forces everyone to pay an individual mandate tax, including families making less than $66,150;

o Creates federal mandates raising the standard for basic minimum coverage; which the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) stated would cause higher premiums for individuals and families;

o Cuts over $500 billion from Medicare, even though more people are entering the Medicare system, such as $202.3 billion from the Medicare Advantage program, $10 billion from Medicare part D, and reductions to funding supporting Medicare physician payment coverage, durable medical equipment, preventative services, and Social Security;

o Allows taxpayer funding for abortions because, although President Obama promised to prevent this occurrence with an Executive Order, this language was not passed in the bill and thus, is not the law;

o Adds 30 million new people to a system where the amount of doctors will be reduced by 46 percent by 2013, according to a survey conducted by The Medicus Firm, at a time where the field should be expanded by 20 percent, resulting in decreased quality of care;

o Increases taxes by $569.2 billion, as estimated by the CBO, including $52 billion in new taxes on employers who cannot afford to pay their employees' health care during a time where unemployment is 9.7 percent; and

o Costs $1.2 trillion over the next ten (10) years, according to the CBO, which includes the $940 billion in coverage subsidies, $144.2 billion in additional mandatory spending, $70 billion in discretionary spending, and $41.6 billion in unrelated education spending.
