Instead, the media reports meaningless drivel,
politicing, promises, compromises, party squabbles and leaves out the substance
of this incredibly bad hostile takeover of your doctor's office,
complete with end-your-life paperwork issued by bureaucrats, denial of service,
strict rationing, cash penalties for selecting your own doctors or treatment.
Gun-Rights Linkage: With this much total control over your medical and
financial records, there's a very short step between automated analysis of your
"fitness" to keep and bear arms, and the various prohibited-possessor
lists the government is keeping and recommending. That's just my idle
observation, the bill does not explicitly address it in any way.
The lamestream media told you:
July 30, 2009; AP -- House democrats reached a
deal Wednesday on a health care reform bill that would reduce federal
subsidies, help lower-income families, exempt businesses, cover the elderly,
provide additional revenue, require insurance, provide subsidies to the poor,
help choose your health insurance, recommend health benefits, cap out-of-pocket
expenses, set standards... deadlines, blue-dogs, budget experts, negotiations,
the top of Obama's agenda, deadlines, timetable slippage, leadership,
deadlines... and cost less than one trillion dollars without increasing the
federal deficit. http://tinyurl.com/ko64s3
Ombudsman notes however that:
First off, it's impossible to spend a trillion dollars, when your treasury is
already demolished by debt, without making your deficit worse, even a moron can
see that (proof that morons don't work for the AP).
I make a living studying and describing laws. I've spot checked this man
Fleckstein's work below, he is a little blustery, but he is accurate. The media
has avoided just about all of this, preferring instead to spread
he-said-she-said silliness and posturing, keeping you and the nation in the
dark. CNN, FOX, the networks -- none of them are covering the real content
of the bill!
If politicians somehow get away with passing this atrocity, the federal government
will create an impenetrable barrier to medical service, countless bureaucrats
will take over life-and-death power of every aspect of medical care, and they
will wreak havoc on nearly 20% of our already frail economy. As you age,
your value will be calculated and your access to health care will drop.
Remember -- there is no delegated constitutional authority for any of this:
powers delegated to the federal government do not include running an insurance
company, regulating what medical care you can get, where you can go for medical
treatment, how much you can pay, what sort of treatments you can select, or
punishing you or your employer for deciding on your own health care.
We are supposed to have a government of limited delegated powers; if government
can do whatever it pleases, without constraint, as they are about to do with
your medicine, that's as tyrannical as it gets -- we no longer have a limited
government as we should, the basis of our freedom. Pick up your phone, finally,
call your representatives, and demand they stop this insane and unlawful
intrusion into your doctor's office. At least call your doctor. Do it. Ask for

Fleckstien's analysis is ongoing, and the democrats are making insignificant
changes to gain political support, without effecting the wholesale takeover of
the medical industry. Doctors are abandoning the AMA (which is supporting the
bill because it puts more power in the hands of the central controllers).
If you don't want to call your representatives in Congress (can't say I blame
you, unfortunately) -- call your doctors! Ask them if they've read the bill, and
when they say no, tell them you have read a review and it is beyond awful. Tell
them you don't want the federal government to take over their office. They may
not even be aware of what's going on. Send them this email message -- they'll
give you an email address if you press them for it. Save your doctors despite
