You may not know this, but someone of political stature has finally stepped forward and broken down ObamaCare, highlighting important facts by page number. Thank you, Judge Kithil of Marbles Fall, Texas, for putting your name and your merit out in front of every one of your fellow citizens and taking the time to point out to all how shady and unproductive this monumental mistake of a bill is.

This is straight off of Patriots For America:Link
  • Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
  • Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
  • Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).
  • Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)
  • Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.
  • Page 272/section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age.
  • Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
  • Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling...)
  • Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
"Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress. Members of Congress are already exempt from the Social Security system, and have a well-funded private plan that covers their retirement needs. If they were on our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick 'fix' to make the plan financially sound for their future."

The outline above is a false representation of the health care bill and should not be taken seriously. I discovered this fact on 03/06/11 and want to point out that it should not have been used as a news source.

With facts like these it is a mind-numbing exercise to attempt to rationalize how so many of our political leaders could possibly suggest a concept of health care with such a crushing gravity on our economy and our principles as a nation. To apply logic to what this bill entails in any capacity seems to be impossible. Is it fair to say anyone who signed this thing needs to be voted out of Washington as soon as possible?

In the spirit of people trying to create real change, which does not abolish our American principles but strengthens them, and in the spirit of speaking out and making yourself heard for the greater benefit of this nation, remember Martin Luther King today and the extraordinary accomplishes and sacrifices he made for this country.

1,716.9 miles to go.
