RUSH: Now, somebody tell me how in the world anyone could take that out of context. That is a full 43 seconds, no edits, we didn't take sentences out of order and assemble them in a way we wanted. A single payer health care plan, universal health care plan, that's what I'd like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately, because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House. Now they've done that, now they're going for single payer health care. I don't know why they did this. We think of these people as brilliant in the Alinsky sense. All they're doing is calling attention his lies. All they're doing is calling attention to his deceit. All they're doing is causing people to go back and get these full fledged clips and play them all over the place, radio, television. Linda Douglass looks like a sap. Linda Douglass looks like what she is, a propagandist former employee of state-controlled media.
On page 16 of the House bill, it's right there, and you've heard people quote from it. I'm going to summarize it, page 16 : private insurance will become illegal. Insurance companies cannot write new policies, people will lose their existing policy if they change jobs, if they change coverage, or if they change prices. Once any aspect of your private health insurance changes after this bill goes into effect, you can't renew it. You have to go public option. On page 29 of the House bill, it is admitted that our health care will be rationed. On page 42, the health choices commissioner will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. Page 58, every person will be issued a national ID health card, and it will probably have that stupid logo that reminds me of World War II, frankly, when you look at it, you'll say the same thing. The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer to pay. Yes, my friends, the federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer, meaning from your account to them. They will be able to debit your account for health expenses. That's on page 59, go get the bill. I'm summarizing here for you.
On page 72, all private health care plans must conform to government rules to participate in a health care exchange. Any individual who doesn't have acceptable health care defined by the government will be taxed two-and-a-half percent of their income each year. Officers and employees of government health care bureaucracy will have access to all American financial and personal records, page 195. Page 203, the tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as a tax. I'm quoting from the actual bill. I've got numerous examples but I'm way over time here. But, Ms. Douglas, you've been made a sap on this, and you've only caused even more attention to be focused on what your boss actually intends and what is in the House bill. It's there. This campaign of fraud and deceit is exactly why the American people are up in arms, and it's exactly why you and your party are looking at them with deep contempt. This wasn't part of the plan. The American people weren't supposed to figure all this out. They are just supposed to bow down and say, "Thank you for caring about us."
That's a new one...
This was being discussed on talk radio today. I almost crashed the car!
Nope, it’s been there since the beginning.
Many of the summaries put out flagged it as an issue.
I posted that weeks ago.
But, I’m glad Rush is pointing it out. Maybe people will sit up and take notice.
Now we are beginning to see why Nancy, Obama, and Reid wanted this thing passed before recess. Before they come back from break I predict many of the dim members will gain a whole new outlook.
It’s a 1000 page bill. It’ll take some time to read it. That’s why the 0 wants to push it through NOW!
I was trying to explain this to my looney liberal help the poor people liberal friend today. From her perspective its good if everyone gets free health care and she does not feel her quality of health care will suffer since as she stated “rich people will always have good health care and they can pay doctors directly if need be.”
And nobody wanted Real ID cuz it was too close to a national ID.
Did you ask her the simple question, how do you cover the extra 47 million people with no new doctors and no additional costs.
They just keep pushing.
According to her doctors will go underground to make money servicing wealthy clients, and of course, these will be the best doctors that money can buy.
The problem is in the wording of the bill. It says that the appropriate billing agency will be able to bill using direct access.
If you were to see the same wording in organizational papers for a private venture it could easily be construed that the venture will be able to accept funds using direct deposit. That would certainly be appropriate. Since it was a statement from a private firm, there would be no concern that the prescribed billing would occur without the consent of the billed.
However, since this wording occurs in the organizational papers of a government venture, one could surmise that the wording empowers that government entity to bill clients directly without their consent. In my view this is a possible reading of the bill. It may not be the intent of the writers. It may not be how it would be implemented. It may be that, if the bill passes, that the implementation is merely to note that the appropriate agencies will implement a way to accept direct billing from accounts as a service to the clients.
However, and this is the crux of the problem with the whole idea of government impinging on the private health care system, there is also the possibility that even IF the most benign interpretation was intended by Congress, since this is a government program there is nothing to keep bureaucrats from construing this, and any number of phrases in this bill, in a way which would be a grievous imposition on our basic rights.
This is the fundamental reason why government should only be used as a tool of last resort after all other methods have failed. This is irrespective of any arguments one may have that this whole endeavor is grossly unconstitutional!
“Hi! We’re from the government and we’re here to give you a receipt for the funds we transfered out of your checking account. Have a nice day!”
Looks lke I am going to need to close my bank account...come and get my money from my cold dead hands...
One of my Coworkers came unglued!
This is Marxism and must be stopped at all costs!
Sounds like something out of the Book of Revelation.
Idiotic boneheads who voted for any Democrat in the last four years are so stupid that they don’t even think about what they’ve done to themselves and everybody else. Oysters are smarter than Democrat voters!
