Op-ed:

The secrets hidden in ObamaCare
By: Diane Sori

Now that ObamaCare has been repealed in the House it’s imperative that it be repealed in the Senate. We all know the face value dangers of ObamaCare but there are dangers lurking below the surface, dangers that the average person might NOT be aware of...dangers that could kill you in ways you never imagined, and I mean dangers beyond the so-called ‘death panels’ and rationed care.

For starters, we all know ObamaCare takes away OUR right to make OUR own decisions about the treatment of OUR bodies.  And most of us know that under ObamaCare the Federal government will now decide how doctors will treat even the privately insured.  As an example, for those having private insurance your doctors will now be forced to provide only care that is approved by the government, and if your doctor does not follow those set guidelines they will NOT be able to practice within the ObamaCare so-called ‘qualified plans.’  With everyone required to be in an ObamaCare sanctioned plan, the doctor who refuses to conform to the plan’s rules and guidelines or who refuses to accept that plan altogether, will no longer be able to practice, meaning we will face a shortage of doctors. 
 
A shortage of doctors as OUR population grows and ages is so serious in its ramifications for the simple reason that people needing immediate medical care will no longer be able to get it because there will be no doctor available to see them.  The direct cause and effect...people will die for lack of medical care.

Also, under ObamaCare, the government now has total computer access to all OUR private records, including OUR bank records, and allows this no longer private information to be given out to third parties (can you say identity theft).  This totally negates OUR Constitutional given right to privacy and gives new meaning to the words, ‘Big Brother Is Watching You.’  Also, with everything under ObamaCare computerized, doctor’s will have to spend more time at a computer than with patients as they must make sure the treatment they are providing meets with and doesn’t overstep or exceed  ObamaCare’s set guidelines and rules for whatever they are treating you for.

And while we all know that taxes will increase under ObamaCare, bet you didn’t know that the biggest burden of all will be carried by those who can afford it the least, meaning those who are currently ill, those who will become chronically ill in the future, and those whose medical bills are already staggering.

Why...simply because under ObamaCare less money will be able to be deducted for medical expenses on personal income tax returns.  So, now Instead of being able to deduct medical expenses that exceed 7.5% of your income, you will have to spend 10% of said income on medical expenses before being able to claim a single medical deduction.  And no matter your income bracket, this will hurt because we all get sick eventually.

This raise in the allowed tax deduction will seriously hurt many as most people do NOT have 6-figure incomes, and they need deductions that allow them to keep money in their pocket instead of handing it over to the government.  How will it kill...simply because now some will NOT seek needed medical care because they can’t afford to.

And the elderly will be hit the hardest by ObamaCare, even the healthy elderly who are covered by Medicare, because as ObamaCare is structured, any further changes to Medicare can now be made without the approval of Congress.  Without the approval of Congress...these words cannot be stressed enough because the executive branch of government can now completely change or alter at whim what medical services will be provided to Medicare recipients, what services they will discontinue, and how remaining services will be allocated and who they will be allocated to.

This gives a whole new even more scary meaning to ‘death panels’ and rationed care.  I can almost guarantee that the senior death numbers will now be on the rise after decades of seniors living longer healthier lives.

Lastly, ObamaCare reduces funding for Medicare by $575 billion just as 30% more people, the vast majority being Baby Boomers, starts entering the program in large numbers.  And with ObamaCare cutting payments to hospitals, doctors, home health care providers, dialysis care, hospice care, and other critical care services, our once state-of-art, first class medical services and institutions will now become second class at best.

But the bottom line and worst of all is that under ObamaCare you will have government controlled puppets along with bought and sold administrators NOT doctors making medical decisions for you.  The death toll will surely rise and the lawsuits coming will be unprecedented...and rightly so.

So knowing all this, it is most imperative that the Senate repeal this abomination and repeal it as soon as possible, and if Prince Harry dares to stop this from reaching the Senate floor then he needs to be brought up on charges of nothing short of high crimes against Americans.

‘We the People’ will demand NO less.

  1. Harry Reid prevented the vote from being taken. He must've known there'd be enough defecting Democrats to embarrass the Marxist-In-Chief.

    1. Could be but that was the first time. if he blocks a vote now that the House has repealed it that will be a very, very unwise political move not only for him but for Obama as well.

  2. What Reid did is what was expected so now we must push farther and faster. Maybe it should be a direct attack Reid by demanding recall in Arizona through whatever means we have available. Why not start with the Governor and legislators?
    I do not practice law, though I am degreed, so maybe we have some others who do and are interested.
    I do think the Gov. is a GOP mdember and shall check that.

  3. So a number of States are rejecting Obamacare ... Can they legally reject it or can the gov still force them to use it via some "hidden" clause in obamacare"

  4. It was a flaw in their massive haste and stupidity of arrogance and evil people. That flaw caused this route by many states, and I hope mine, Tennessee, follows suit.

  5. won't have to worry about identity theft once everyone receives the chip which is also in the packet.
    Alaska Governor Sean Parnel has indicated he will opt out, but he hasn't made it clear yet. He'll let us know in a few weeks? Why not just say yay or nay? bugs me. Victoria Jenkins

    1. HB3200

      You can check the validity of this information by checking HB3200 yourself. It is accurate

      YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS...

      At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment

      What Nancy Pelosi didn't want us to know until after the healthcare bill was passed. Remember she said, "pass it and then read it!!." Here it is!

      Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number

      THE CARE BILL HB 3200

      JUDGE KITHIL IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS OF THE CARE BILL.

      Judge Kithil of Marble Falls, TX - highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200

      Please read this........ especially the reference to pages 58 & 59

      JUDGE KITHIL wrote:

      ** 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.

      HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:

      "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."

      - Honorable David Kithil of Marble Falls, Texas
