Racial Preferences in the Democrats' Health Care Bill
American Thinker ^ | July 21, 2009 | Allan J. Favish

Posted on 07/20/2009 10:20:39 PM PDT by AJFavish

All 1,018 pages of the Democrats' health care bill can be inspected here. The bill includes racial preferences. Under the Democrats' health care bill, if a medical school wants to increase its chances of receiving many different kinds of grants and contracts from the federal government, it should have a demonstrated record of training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups. This is because the Democrats' health care bill requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to give preference to the entities that have demonstrated such a record in the awarding of these contracts to medical schools and other institutions.

Perhaps somebody in what is left of this country's news media can find out who is responsible for the racial preferences in this bill. I want names.

These preferences, I'm sure, will also apply to medical schools that propound reproductive services (read train for abortions).

I don’t suppose big Irish mugs qualify, do they?

“...who is responsible for the racial preferences in this bill. I want names.”

That will be a very loooooong list, I’m afraid. Try the world’s entire ‘left-wing’.

The white race must be ‘equalized’.

Translation: “To the back of the bus, honky!”

Only a fool would believe that they want equality.

Shouldn’t surprise anybody. Well, the sheeple of America that are at the mall. It might surprise them.

I’m at the point where I’ll oppose it and call my Congresscritters, but I really don’t care if the RATS get their agenda through or not. I think the majority of Americans deserve it, and I HOPE that they run out of HOPE in the unemployment line. Those of us that actually read some things tried to warn you idiots.

This will give new meaning to the term “Medical Practice.”

We’re going to end up with minority doctors and surgeons who were pushed through school and residency without regard to competency in order to meet quota timetables.

“The bill includes racial preferences.

That’s great... Not only will this Socialist system contain no incentive, which will drive our best and brightest away from the field, it will guarantee that we have enough affirmative action doctors to make up for it. It will also create a massive bureaucracy of undereducated mini-mussolinis who will invade our privacy and ‘help’ us with healthcare decisons that were traditionally between us and our doctor.

But, I guess it will be ‘free’, except that it’s actually going to end of being a huge transfer of wealth from the Middle Class to Illegal Aliens and Crackheads, all of whom will be perpetual Dem voters.

It’s the Chicago Way and ‘We Won!’, right?!?

From the Comments section. Welcome to Bizarro World:

Posted by: Jack Kemp Jul 20, 11:43 PM

Fine article, Mr. Favish.

It seems that the Obama Healthcare bill wants to also redefine gender to placate the demands of the homosexual lobby. Male and female will no longer be valid categories in their database.

If the bill passes in its current form, Sec. Kathleen Sebelius will have:

[www.cnsnews.com]

"authority to develop "standards of measuring gender" -- as opposed to using the traditional "male" and "female" categories -- in a database of all who apply or participate in government-run or government-supported health care plans."

Can a person, keeping their own male name, merely demand to be classified as the opposite sex to avoid a past record of medical insurance or other fraud? Who exactly in the Department of Health and Human Services is qualified to determine someone's inner gender? Will they hire Madame Cleo from the Psychic Hotline? Will it be a committee deciding by a majority vote?

A gay female may want to identify themselves as the politically correct term for male, but when given certain medicines or procedures, the medical plan may not consider contraindications due to the birth sex of that person, causing problems with treatment and payment/allowing of certain procedures. A "pregnant man" could exist where someone could insist they ARE a man AND pregnant - and that government bureaucrats are homophobic for saying otherwise.

And we thought the drug induced Lewis Carroll story of Alice in Wonderland was weird. The hookah smoking caterpillar, the "drink me" bottles, the Mad Hatter have got nothing on this one.

Here’s my attempt at throwing the left’s rhetoric right back at them. Just change the IMF to the Obama administration:

“Four hundred years from the plantation whip
To the IMF grip
Aid travels with a bomb
Watch out
Aid travels with a bomb
They rob and exploit you of your own
Then send it back as a foreign loan
Interest is on it, regulations too
They will also
Decide your policy
For you.”

-”Aid” by Rasta Dub poet Jean Breeze

A large road construction project, financed by the “stimulus” bill, was awarded to the largest road construction country in this area. A friend of my husband (a union democrat) who works for that company says a lot of his fellow employees are furious because the contract stipulates that preferences must be made in favor of minorities in hiring workers for the job. He said all workers hired will be minorities.

Oh, please.

The regimen of preferences for women and minorities in Federal grants and contracts has been in place for 30+ years.

There are female "professors" whose entire CAREERS have been serving as sham Principal Investigators on NIH grants which would have been unfundable without a female PI.

A lot of us still don't understand the game. The reason they could produce a 1000 page bill in two weeks is that most of it has existed on the word processors of the Left for at least the last 20 years, in some cases the last 40 years.

The hospital and doctor destruction bill contains every commie fantasy about medicine, ever.

AMENDMENT XIV
Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.

Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

And, oh by the way, "ANY PERSON" also means the elderly -- under the 14th amendment, you CANNOT make choices amongst groups or individuals about who would receive - or be denied - health care. ALL must be treated equally.

So not only is this provision blantantly unconstitutional, it would also be unconstitutional to have a separate health plan for congress and the President.

Perhaps somebody in what is left of this country's news media can find out who is responsible for the racial preferences in this bill. I want names.

Seriously? Just look at anyone of the them with a 'd' next to their name. It could have been anyone of them.
