Sickness Care

I am greatly concerned about the present Health Care bill(s) being proposed in Washington. They call it Health Care but it actually is sickness care. It has nothing to do with staying health but everything to do with what happens after you get sick.
Will what is proposed keep you healthy? No. Will it keep you from getting sick? No. Will it keep you from dying? No. Senator Kennedy is a good example of that. He had the best insurance in the country. He had the best medical treatments available. Yet he died.
But you can do some things that will keep you healthy and prolong your life. Diet and lifestyle changes will keep you healthy and prolong your life. Reducing stress. Removing animal products from your diet will remove about 70-90% of all sickness and disease! Getting plenty of vitamin D3 will help. Drink the proper amounts of water each day. Get sufficient rest each night. All of these will actually do more good than a lot things being proposed today.

Health Care Reform - HB 3200

This summary is from the Liberty Counsel.
  • Section 113 mandates a government audit of the books of all employers that self-insure in order to "ensure that the law does not provide incentives for small and mid-size employers to self-insure."
  • Section 123 there will be a government committee deciding what treatments and benefits you get.
  • Section 152 Health Care will be provided to all non-US citizens.
  • Section 201 Government is creating an HC Exchange to bring private plans under government control.
  • Section 205 The government will use groups (i.e. Acorn & AmeriCorps) to "inform and educate" (sign up) individuals for government plan.
  • Section 225 The government will tell you what you can make (doctors). "The secretary shall provide for the annual participation of physicians under the public health insurance option, for which payment may be made for services furnished during the year."
  • Section 59B Any nonresident alien is exempt from individual taxes.
  • Section 441 "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax."
  • Section 1151 The government will penalize hospitals for what government deems preventable readmissions.
  • Section 1162 The government mandates establishment of outcome-based measures. (rationing)
  • Section 1233 The government provides approved list of end-of-life resources, guiding you in death.
  • Section 1233 The government will decide what level of treatment you will have at end of life, according to preset methods.
  • Section 1308 The government will cover Mental Health Services including defining, creating and rationing those services.
  • Section 1441 The government will define "New Quality" measures in Health Care.

There is much more in HB 3200. But these brief statements should be sufficient to warrant a lot of concern and motivation to contact your Representatives and Senators to ask that they not support this bill.
