    The common sense evaluation of what the Healh care bill will do.

    I will give the link to the site but only copy from it the evaluations of what exactly the bill says.


    http://www.classicalideals.com/HR3200.htm




    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGES:

    1. This section amends the Social Security Act

    2. The government has the power to determine what constitutes an “applicable [medical] condition.”

    3. The government has the power to determine who is allowed readmission into a hospital.

    4. This determination will be made by statistics: when enough people have been discharged for the same condition, an individual may be readmitted.

    5. This is government rationing, pure, simple, and straight up.

    6. There can be no judicial review of decisions made here. The Secretary is above the courts.

    7. The plan also allows the government to prohibit hospitals from expanding without federal permission: page 317-318.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGE:



    1. This section amends the Internal Revenue Code.

    2. Anyone caught without acceptable coverage and not in the government plan will pay a special tax.

    3. The IRS will be a major enforcement mechanism for the plan.



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------




    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGES:



    1. The bill defines “acceptable coverage” and leaves no room for choice in this regard.

    2. By setting a minimum 70% actuarial value of benefits, the bill makes health plans in which individuals pay for routine services, but carry insurance only for catastrophic events, (such as Health Savings Accounts) illegal.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------


    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGES:



    1. The bill does not prohibit a person from buying private insurance.

    2. Small businesses—with say 8-10 employees—will either have to provide insurance to federal standards, or pay an 8% payroll tax. Business costs for health care are higher than this, especially considering administrative costs. Any competitive business that tries to stay with a private plan will face a payroll disadvantage against competitors who go with the government “option.”

    3. The pressure for business owners to terminate the private plans will be enormous.

    4. With employers ending plans, millions of Americans will lose their private coverage, and fewer companies will offer it.

    5. The Commissioner (meaning, always, the bureaucrats) will determine whether a particular network of physicians, hospitals and insurance is acceptable.

    6. With private insurance starved, many people enrolled in the government “option” will have no place else to go.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGE:



    1. This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code.

    2. Tax surcharges are levied on those with the highest incomes.

    3. The plan manipulates the tax code to redistribute their wealth.

    4. Successful business owners will bear the highest cost of this plan.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------



    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGE:



    1. This section amends the Internal Revenue Code

    2. The bill opens up income tax return information to federal officials.

    3. Any stated “limits” to such information are circumvented by item (v), which allows federal officials to decide what information is needed.

    4. Employers are required to report whatever information the government says it needs to enforce the plan.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGES:



    1. Sec. 1123 amends the Social Security Act, to allow the Secretary to identify areas of the country that underutilize the government’s plan “based on per capita spending.”

    2. Parts of the plan are set above the review of the courts.
