I keep asking people what is really in this health care bill we are all talking about. Here it is in its entirety. I know I'm supposed to only do a snippet but really, this is the whole thing.

This is the new transparency with its opportunity for us to examine its content and provide feedback to our elected officials. The only detailed part is the list of who sponsored it! I think they should provide some hint of the process they will use to fill in the details in this blank bill.

It basically is going to boil down to this:


NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- President-elect Barack Obama, as part of the effort to revive the economy, has proposed a massive effort to modernize health care by making all health records standardized and electronic.

Here's the audacious plan: Computerize all health records within five years. The quality of health care for all Americans gets a big boost, and costs decline.

and this...


This system will be implemented, sooner or later, since it will be part of the mechanism to control the people.

”First, control all the medical records. Next, control access to the records by use of a card containing an rfid chip. After enough folks lose, forget, or for whatever reason, show up at the emergency room without their card, the government will require that the rfid chips be implanted in peoples’ bodies.

”No implanted chip, no health care.

”Another step towards the mark of the beast.”

–Pastor Tom Guest



Do you see what I see?

Computerizing health records is all very fine and good but it's not the answer to reforming health care. I can't believe this bill is just a broad outline with no details at all. It's insulting to us to pretend like this is legislation. It'll end up being like the stimulus package, passed with nobody knowing what's in it. We will only find out our fate when it's too late.

The POTUS and his people keep doing this. They are doing it for a reason tho, they want to shove as much crap as they can down our throats, to pass as much bs as they can , while he is still in his "honeymoon" phase and his popularity is high.

Apparently they know its going to drop, once we find out whats really going on.

They have been doing this from the beginning, asking for huge amounts of money with NO plan on what its going to be spent on. Only vague explanations, and huge loopholes, no concrete plans here.

As ive said before, if you go to a bank and ask for money for a business loan, and you dont have a business plan? THEY WONT LEND YOU MONEY! It should work the same way with Washington.

But as long as people put up with it, it will keep happening.
