Reading parts of the proposed health care plan

-A A +A
By Robert E. Beckner

This column will probably ruin a lot of our readers’ weekend to start with, because it contains some of the proposed Democratic National Health Care plans, rules and regulations of the Democratic House. Nothing is written in concrete yet as the Senate version of their bill won’t be considered until September, when both Houses meet again. The House approved this one version of their bill last month. So the best you can get out of this, as submitted, simply shows you the way the Democratic left is thinking with a half dozen or so Republicans.

I find it difficult to believe any real American, black or white, could put something like it together or to approve it. One copy is six pages long; so obviously, this list will only contain very few of their basics as to how to treat Americans. My second source provided three pages. The ones you’ve probably heard are here. Republican Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Ann Coulter are already calling it an “evil” piece of legislation and I agree – so here is one version of “Obamacare.” It consists of 1,000 pages, and there are two more Democratic and two Senate bills yet to come.

These give you some idea of what the American public would have to face and put up with under the President’s Health Care Plan. It seems unbelievable! I suggest if and when you hear of a Town Hall meeting by some politicians or others you get up a car load and get there and hear what is being said; the larger the crowd the better. Such groups are being called mobs, Nancy Pelosi calls us Nazi Sympathizers and their “thought police” are asking for anyone who hears “Fishy Behavior” to call into the White House. There are so many of these meetings, all complaining about the Democratic bill that the “left” can’t keep up with them and now wants Americans to spy on each other creating an enemies list, just like in Cuba and Russia. All their “left” is doing is to enable more Americans to understand the thinking and therefore the danger of the liberal left. The “left” has its president and is attempting to remake America. Many principles of the “left” are becoming clearer to more Americans to find out daily!

It should be added in here that I received six pages of this information from one source and four from another; but I only pulled out what I thought you should see.

It was stated recently in this column that we never got much information about our president before electing him and the following, if known, would surely have cost him a few votes. While in the U.S. Senate, he joined other Democrats to defeat GOP health care reform proposals he now says can only be addressed by a $2 trillion government takeover. Here is a sampling of Mr. Obama’s greatest NAYS.

No on allowing Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines.

No in allowing Americans to use their own health saving account (HSA) funds to cover health insurance premiums.

No on preventing the erosions of private health coverage.

No on expanding access to small business health plans.

No on preserving employer sponsored coverage.

No on requiring health insurance for illegal immigrants.

Another source of his possible loss of votes is the “Freedom of Choice Act” or FOCA as it is often known. This is a terrible bill the president wants passed, as it overrules every state’s law regarding abortions and makes the national law mandatory. It needs a full explanation, but just not yet as it has quite a bit of time to come up, etc – we’ll give it the coverage it needs later.

Mr. Obama has prepared a Plan B, but it isn’t out yet. Plan B must be watched. It’s Obamacare without the most controversial part, the creation of a government-run “public” health insurance plan. It’s something that Mr. President and the health insurance lobby both agree on. We’ll provide more information when we have more space.
