- HHS Secretary thinks WE are confused?
- by Christine Gates ~ September 22, 2010
Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health & Human Services, said today, “Those who still oppose the health care changes are confused.” I don’t think so, honey! I don’t want your stinky little paws on my health care decisions! What exactly does she think I am confused about?
Where do I start? That woman has some nerve to say that we are confused!! I’m sure more TEA Party, 912 Project, or Campaign For Liberty members have read this legislation than members of Congress!
They promised costs and out of pocket expenses would go down. LIE! THEY KEEP ANNOUNCING INSURANCE INCREASES, MORE MANDATORY COVERAGE, MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE…. We can’t afford it.
They promised to end the practice of not covering pre-existing conditions. Today it was announced that your kids’ pre-existing conditions will be covered on Thursday, but only if you buy a new policy on or after Thursday. OH, AND, THAT REMINDS ME OF OBAMA’S LONG-HELD PROMISE: “If you like your insurance policy, you can keep it.” I knew that was a lie, because I read the freakin’ bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just sit quietly and think about that double-talk…………. You are covered only if you buy a new policy……………… How does an employee who is happy with their currently offered coverage from their employer reconcile this dilemma? Does a family cancel their policy and buy it on the individual free market just to cover a pre-existing condition of one child? Wasn’t this always an option? Wasn’t this exactly what Obama promised to fix????? I’m not confused. It is crystal clear to me – They lied! They’re smokin’ crack, if they think the American people are going to tolerate these types of insane reforms. They are crazy!
Also announced yesterday, everyone will pay between $140-$250 MORE PER MONTH for long-term care coverage. STARTING THURSDAY!! Example: If you’ re 30-years old, you pay more whether you want it or not! (Obamacare is practically free, right?)
And aaaaaaaaaaaaaa, all parents MUST cover their adult children until their 26th birthday. Whether the parent can afford it or not. Whether the kid is married with his own kids or not. Whether your kid is a ne’er-do-well and in jail or not. IF YOUR KID DOESN’T HAVE, OR WANT, MEDICAL INSURANCE, THEN, MOM AND DAD, YOU ARE ON THE HOOK FOR YEARS OF INSURANCE PAYMENTS or parents face IRS fines, penalties, levies, garnishments, and possible jail time. Whew-who! Welcome to Obamacare. I’m not confused.
Preventative medicine has been a big concern throughout all of these discussions of healthcare. Surprise! Mammograms, colonoscopies, etc… will be covered now and mandatory for you to get them on the government schedule. That’s good right? Well, you will pay for all of it upfront in the price of your new annual medical insurance policy. In case you don’t understand what that means – You will pay the costs for all of these services on top of your premium. “Up front” means that it is not covered if you pay the deductible, a co-pay, or co-insurance payment. You pay “up front” above the price of the premium for the services whether you have them or not – but you will have them because they’re mandatory for good preventative care. THERE’S NO FREE LUNCH! Also… your diet and lifestyle will be closely monitored by medical counselors to keep you on track. Smile! I’m still not confused, Kathleen!
GOOD NEWS FOR YOU DRUG ADDICTS OUT THERE. Residential addiction treatment services are now mandatory in everyone’s medical insurance plans. You pay for that, too, even if you don’t have any addicts in your family. It’s gonna cost you.
If you can’t afford all these services, too bad. This is the plan the federal government has mandated for you and I. One size fits all. When your insurance company goes out of business because they can’t afford to pay the claims for unlimited medical coverage and you can’t pay the premiums, then guess what… there will be a public option (socialized, nationalized, Medicaid-like) waiting for you in 2016. Don’t worry.
For your convenience, all Medicare, Medicaid or any public option insurers will be given a National Medical Identification Card that must be machine readable and contain all patient medical records and financial information to be accessed before every medical service. What does that mean?? That means that the government will have access to your checking account, savings account, investments, 401K, retirement accounts when you see the doctor so that in January 2013 you fee will be on a sliding scale so you can pay more if you are able. So that doctors can debit and credit your account directly. Yes, they can take money out and put money in your account, too. You have no choice.
Aaaah, and those with member of society with Special Needs are exempted from many services by 2014. See SECTION 3205 of HR390 and also the changes to Social Security Act (42 USC 1395W-28(f)) changes from 1859 (b)(6)(B)(ii) and subsection 1859 (f). I’m not confused!!! Our special needs family members aren’t covered anymore. They don’t matter. They drain too many resources out of the system. WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also tucked away in the healthcare bill, all private transactions between you and I over $600 annually must be reported to the IRS. What?? This included garage sales, used bedroom suites, etc…. I am confused by why this is in the health care bill.
Excise taxes on medical equipment like wheelchairs and breast pumps with lots of standardized testing for breast pump “performance” with tax incentives for breast feeders. Whatever! And mandatory breast feeding times at work. OMG! This is to fit obesity and to maintain good health to bring down health care costs. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I am not confused, honey! I DON’T WANT IT!!!!!
Don’t you see the control being gathered by this mis-named legislation “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010″ (aka HR 3590 & HR4872)???? Do you see the control?
