Skip to comments.Racial Preferences in the Democrats' Health Care Bill
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.

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.
“WOW! I never saw that one coming!!!”
With all due FReeper respect, there’s A LOT that even freepers don’t ‘see coming’, unfortunately.

Damn self centered BLOATED gas bags.
Thank you for calling this to our attention. We need to get this out to the FR press list. Glenn Beck, Hannity, O’Reilly, etc.
Would someone post the list with email addresses, please?
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.
Lest there be any misunderstanding:

“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.”
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?!?
What is it with the blatant racism?
And that camel he rode in on!
it is merely a manifestation of this regime’s melanometric agenda..
I wonder if one of Obama’s kids needed an operation , he would call for a minority doctor or the BEST doctor,,HUMMMM let ssee..hummmmmmmmm
Thanks for posting this.
Obama and his cabal are at war on whites....and the votes that elected them from minorities were in no small part for that motivation.
Retributions. Ten years ago he said he wanted them, more should have been done and now he wants us to pay for something done generations ago. That guy has identity issues and he is obsessed with the black race and minorities taking over everything. He’s a freak and can KMA.
the word "qualified" is conspicuously missing from this phrase
so, are they going to be dumbing down the medical profession?????
Okay, how about this. Blacks can get treated by black doctors only , hispanics can get treated by hispanic doctors only, etc. As for me, I'll take the best damn doctor available, regardless of race.
The Obama agenda is clear...destroy the White man...
someone anticipating significant changes in demographics any time soon?
That would be the white guys in 2010 after amnesty floods America with 30 million new Democrats.
When the compensation cuts and caps are completed, it will most certainly be a dumbed down profession.
Clyburn would be one of them, I’m sure.
This is nothing new for the federal government and hardly surprising. Under the guise of promoting “equal opportunity”, they have been giving hiring and contracting preferences to minorities for years.

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:
"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
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

Once again, Democrats show their utter contempt for Amendment XIV.
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.
This bill has been written, in one form or another, for twenty years.
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.
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.
It would be nice to have a listing on liine of all those who support and enforce racial preferences.
Seriously? Just look at anyone of the them with a 'd' next to their name. It could have been anyone of them.
