Highlights From The Obama Health Care Bill

Would our politicians put themselves and their loved ones on this health care plan? Health care needs fixing but not an overhaul. There are some good ideas on both sides of the isle. Let's take the time and get this right. Thanks to Fleckman who broke down the bill and posted on his twitter account.
Here are my top 12

1. fleckman: Pg 42 of HC Bill – The Health Choices Commissioner will choose UR HC Benefits 4 you. U have no choice! #p2 Jul 17, 2009 12:36 AM GMT ·

2. fleckman: PG 50 Section 152 in HC bill – HC will be provided 2 ALL non US citizens, illegal or otherwise. #p2 Jul 17, 2009 12:52 AM GMT ·

4. fleckman: Pg 59 HC Bill lines 21-24 Govt will have direct access 2 ur banks accts 4 elect. funds transfer! #p2 Jul 17, 2009 01:04 AM GMT ·

5. fleckman: Pg 72 Lines 8-14 Govt is creating an HC Exchange 2 bring priv HC plans under Govt control Jul 17, 2009 02:37 PM GMT ·
So much for the private health care option.

6. fleckman: PG 85 Line 7 HC Bill – Specs for of Benefit Levels for Plans = The Govt will ration ur Healthcare! Jul 17, 2009 02:56 PM GMT

To the elderly and the very ill, watch out. Based upon your illness, age or diagnosis it may not be worth while to ration care out to you.

7. fleckman: pg 124 lines 24-25 HC No company can sue GOVT on price fixing. No “judicial review” against Govt Monop. #p2 Jul 17, 2009 06:28 PM GMT ·

8. fleckman: pg 127 Lines 1-16 HC Bill – Doctors/ #AMA – The Govt will tell YOU what u can make. Jul 17, 2009 06:41 PM GMT

Sure, this will really create competition among doctors and provide us the highest quality health care.
