Senate version of health care is a spectacularly bad piece of legislation by USAPatriot


									The Senate version of health care is a spectacularly bad piece of legislation, and must be opposed for
many, many reasons.

Here are just some of them:

   •   The government will take over 1/6 of the American economy, and put government bureaucrats
       between you and your family's health care providers.
   •   It will cost $2.3 trillion over 10 years when fully implemented and dump a huge debt on the
       shoulders of our children and grandchildren (Senate Budget Committee).
   •   It creates more than 110 new agencies and bureaucracies in the federal government.
   •   It will cut $500 billion from Medicare and $170 billion from Medicare Advantage, resulting in
       rationed and inferior medical care for senior citizens.
   •   It is "the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation that has ever come to the House floor
       for a vote" and contains numerous "federal pro-abortion mandates and federal subsidies for
       abortion" (Doug Johnson, National Right to Life Committee).
   •   It will require taxpayer funding for abortion, and will even require purchasers of private plans
       to pay a monthly fee to pay for other people's abortions.
   •   It contains no conscience protections for health care providers who do not want to be coerced
       into performing abortions.

The current plan will:

   •   Cut $500 billion from Medicare
   •   Force rationing of health care
   •   Raise income taxes to 43% (from 35%) and capital gains taxes to 22.5% (from
   •   Force a $2,000 increase in the average health insurance premium
   •   Force young people to buy insurance they don't need or want that would cost over
       $8500 per person
   • 2.5% of their income as a fine for not having insurance
   •   Or...face prison if they don't do either
   •   Tax medical devices and many medical procedures
