You are confusing the choices of those who will be paying for this debacle and those getting the new entitlement. Paying consumers, purchasing a product will have less choice because the coverage provided for under any plan will be dictated by our dictator. The people on the receiving end won’t have any choice either, they will get the basic plan. Problem is, we don;t know what the basic plan is until after they pass this bill. It may be that the basic plan still leaves them high and dry for most things and they will end up in the ER anyway. But the important thing is that they will have a shiny new insurance card and that should make all the libs feel warm and fuzzy with their loss of freedom and their higher taxes.

There’s plenty of money to be found in fraud. If we would eliminate fraud, we could reverse all the spending and deficits inflicted upon this nation since January. Obama and his supporters, everything they say and do is fraud. That’s the fraud we, as Americans, need to eliminate. Obama speaks the truth, only the actual meaning is not being pursued. This intentional fraud on the American people is no doubt something that the statists and fascists laugh about amongst themselves, on how very clever they are in exploiting the naivete of people who still believe their statesmen could never be so very corrupt. I have no such illusions, nor did our Founders. America, fortunately, is waking up to this threat to our liberties. Come Tuesday, and then come Thursday, the country and our alleged representatives are going to get a taste of genuine Americanism.

11/5/2009. More than 20 thousand Americans arrived in Washington DC for a rally, called an emergency “House Call.”
Those who attended are now tracking down their elected representatives in Congress to put pressure on them to think twice about voting for the more than $1 trillion health care overhaul pushed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and for them to try and explain the pages in the bill HR-3962. They are marching in the halls of the House each carrying a page of the bill looking for their congressman. God Bless America and these loyal Americans.

Congress could care less about the Constitution….it’s all about their own perceived power. Power that will be nonexistent to them in 2010 if this bill passes.

Well stated! I never understood why President Obama has stated over and over that there is so much money to be found in fraud but doesn’t pursue that revenue. I’m not sure what is holding him bAck. We don’t need more spending and overloading the medical system with medical bills that are unsustainable.

bkrueg 11/05/2009 11:16am

So your point is someone else should have to pay for yours and your family’s medical bills. What makes you think HR-3962 is free medical? It’s a $ 1,200,000,000,000.00 medical bill on the heads of every man, women and child for 10 years. There are only 307,212,123 Americans. That’s $3,908,795,000.00 each American over 10 years or $390,879,500.00 each American per year. ($1,070,903.00 per day, 44,621.00 per hour, $744.00 per minute) That my fellow Americans is over-reaching. My opposition to HR-3962 is it is un-constitutional. It is a power grab by some who think the constitution is a living document and then finds powers where none was given or intended. This power grab takes away from Americans god given rights. There is nothing preventing the government from fixing the wrongs in our health care; just not an over-reaching government takeover.

Look to the right Activist77 only 16% support this bill. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down from 45% a week ago.

Fifty-four percent (54%) now oppose the legislative effort, up three points since last week.

Swine flu has killed at least 114 U.S. children according to the latest figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Nineteen swine flu-related pediatric deaths were reported this week, the agency stated Friday in announcing the worst week to date since the outbreak began in April.
More deaths are likely but not confirmed, the agency’s chief Thomas R. Frieden said. About two-thirds of the childhood deaths are among children with other health problems.
Here’s what’s different about swine flu, however: “In a usual flu season, 90 percent of the deaths are among people over the age of 65. In H1N1, 90 percent of the deaths are in people under the age of 65,” Frieden said.

It is a victory but still has to pass the Senate. Can anyone say Filibuster?

Dems dont have the votes to invoke cloture the bill will likely die in Senate.

Extreme conservatives, why are none of you bitching about other publicly funded programs? Medicare, social security, public schools, fire departments, police? The government takes money from your paycheck every month and your state takes money for everything you buy, if you were the conservatives that you say you are you wouldn’t stop at this health care bill. The way I see extreme conservatism is that other people’s kids are not your problem, other people’s houses, cars or other property that can catch fire are not your problem. Other people’s safety is not your problem why should you pay for it? Of course its not your problem, but because they are your fellow American you put up with paying the taxes so that someday if you have to ask for help you did your part in establishing the program that can help you; its part of being a citizen of this country.

The policies that you disagree with in this bill, are they policies you’ve read about or just been told about?

Sec. 1501. Distribution of unused residency positions. Sec. 1502. Increasing training in nonprovider settings.

By the way there isn’t a Sec. 1512.

This site has the full bill available, why try to post this bullshit here? I checked out the site and checked its source, the source doesn’t exist in the bill. The author of that website means to reference SEC. 2571. NATIONAL MEDICAL DEVICE REGISTRY. Please check out the section of the bill for yourself, no where in it does it say that everyone will be implanted or kids will be implanted when they are born. There is no program called CHIP in this bill and we are not going to be tracked like slaves. Your paranoia is unfounded, there are no death panels (SEC. 223. HEALTH BENEFITS ADVISORY COMMITTEE.), the government isn’t going to pull the plug on granny, and you are not going to be micro chipped.

kbenskin 11/10/2009 5:49am

80% oppose this bill so why did the bill pass? Government is suppose to be for the people. Passing a bill against the people’s interest is not representing the will of the people.

How can we stop this bill?

I understand that we will all be required to purchase health care or be fined and/or serve jail time if we do not. I have heard that one of the criteria for purchasing health care would be proof that everyones vaccinations were up to date, including the H1N1 shot. Does this not constitute mandatory forced vacinations on the citizens by the government? Is this the truth?
What if I do not want to have a swine flu shot due to the inability of anyone to really explain what is in the shot, as well as why so many people are dying from these shots in other countries right now. They are dropping left in right in the Ukraine under their forced mandatory vaccinations.
Is this just another step ny the Bilderberg Group to control the population growth in the new world order? No one should be forced to take a shot they do not want. Does anyone know if this is in the bill, as I heard it was!

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) health care plan presumes that about 8-to-14-million American workers will pay fines rather than buy health insurance. Unless they do, there’s a $167-billion hole in her financing plan and everything falls apart.

Like the rest of us, this group would face higher-than-ever insurance prices under Pelosi’s proposed bill.

Speaker Pelosi, President Obama and others claim they will make coverage cheaper, yet the official projection relies upon millions who would prefer to pay fines rather than join their system. In some cases the individuals would pay the penalty; in others their employers would pay; and sometimes both.

The estimate of 8-to-14 million who would be fined is based on the official projections made by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

You are helping to propogate the H1N1 “urgency”. Have you not read all the actual research on the fact that vaccines no not work anyway? It is a ploy to instill fear in the public in order that they can take more control over our lives! See this (http://www.naturalnews.com/027364_internet_pandemic_traffic.html) If we all beleive that they will take care of us, then we will allow them to do it. More than 36,000 people die every year from the seansonal flu. Why the call for a “National Emergency” for this particular strand? The second leading cause of death in America today is perscription drugs! Do more research and wake up.
