Cradle to Grave Health Care
One goal of the ruling New World Order elite is to create a global populace dependent on faceless bureaucrats providing for their health care.
Bill and Hillary Clinton first proposed the Health Security Act that would have converted 1/7 of the nation’s budget into a health bureaucracy. The freedom to choose physicians and to pick a desired treatment were virtually eliminated. In addition, those who disobey the system would receive harsh punishment as their health care legislation would have “criminalized” most avenues patients and doctors could take to obtain and supply health care outside the plan.
- For example, parents who pay for their child’s medical care not covered by the Clinton health care plan or “alliance” could have be convicted of criminal bribery and graft and fined or imprisoned.
- Doctors who cooperate with such parents could also be imprisoned.
- Even citizens who use their own money to avoid waiting lists and rationing could be sent to jail.
- President Clinton’s health-reform plan would have required every American to carry a health identification card bearing a tracking id that could be used for computerized tracking of medical or insurance records. But some worry that this could jeopardize the confidentiality of a patient’s medical history.
In the wake of their failure to pass Clinton’s National Health Insurance plan, socialists are touting their success in passing Health Insurance Reform in the form of the Kennedy/Kassebaum Act. In a clear violation of the Tenth Amendment, this Act gives the Federal government powers reserved for the states. It does not allow states to pass their own Health Insurance plans, states are only required to do what the Federal government allows them. Their state plans must pass muster by the Department of Health and Human Services or be forced to revert to Federal insurance.
Democrats and Republicans alike are plotting to completely destroy private health care in America and allow for the federal takeover of this industry. Every plan being proposed requires certain things of every citizen. One plan requires, mandatory preventative visits to the doctor. Another requires that proof of health care must be rendered before a citizen can be hired on a job. Every program requires that all citizens have some form of health care that is regulated by the government. In addition, each program places several regulatory requirements on the health care industry itself which, at least for the moment is still under the private sector. For each of these proposed health care programs we as citizens are being told that we must relinquish regulatory control of an aspect of our personal life, namely health care, to the control of the Federal Government.
Affordable Health Care for America Act
H.R. 3962 Affordable Health Care for America Act passed in 2009. Once again, Congress has voted to raise your taxes and either fine you or send you to jail for non-compliance with their Socialist agenda.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, was signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010 and upheld by the U.S.Supreme court in 2012.
For the first time in American history, all citizens will now be required to purchase health insurance from private insurance companies or be subject to fines (a tax according to the Supreme Court).
In the short term, this legislation will cause many businesses to lay off thousands and thousands of employees because they cannot afford the government mandated insurance. The result will be in hurting the most vulnerable in our society with unemployment. And in the longer term, American’s will see their costs for healthcare skyrocket as they have less and less control over their own healthcare decisions.
Rationed Health Care
Buried in Obamacare is a new plan for rationed health care. Obamacare includes health rules to have medical treatments tracked electronically by a federal system. But it goes further by establishing a new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, that monitors treatments, as Betsy McCaughey, the former Lt. Governor of New York, says, “to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective.” “The goal is to reduce costs and ‘guide’ your doctor’s decisions,” she explains. Meaning that if they decide you are too old, too frail, too sickly, then perhaps the operation that you want is not in the best interests of the people. You are too expensive. Therefore, some people are going to get their letter in the mail that says, “Sorry, your surgery does not meet our guidelines.”
The waiting lists for healthcare is going to grow into weeks, and then into months. We are going to see mortality rates skyrocket in America and America will fall in rank on the world’s list of quality healthcare.
“Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost- effectiveness standard set by the Federal Council,” McCaughey writes. Obamacare’s provisions are based on the UK system, where cost is more important than treatment and medical care. That has required patients to put off care until their conditions worsen.
Who are the winners and losers?
As government bureaucracy continues to give preferences and protections to HMOs and trial lawyers, the winners will continue to be the Insurance companies, the pharmaceutical companies, and the federal government.
The losers are American citizens who will pay ever rising prices and receive declining care while doctors continue to leave the profession in droves. Already hundreds of thousands of doctors have said they are either going to be shutting their doors, or they are going to leave the country because they will not be able to afford to work under the regulations of Obamacare. Inflation hits the middle class and the poor the most. Those are the people who are losing it.
The answer is not a system of outright socialized medicine, but rather a system that encourages everyone – doctors, hospitals, patients, and drug companies – to keep costs down. As long as “somebody else” is paying the bill, the bill will be too high. Real health care reform will only come when we get back to the Constitutional principle of limited government and get the government, lawyers, and the courts out of our health care decisions. So long as they are allowed to make our health care decisions, the ONLY criteria for health care providers will be greed.
