The Obama Health Care Plan as setforth in H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, is a compulsory health insurance plan.

In other words you no longer have the freedom to decide how to spend your own earned income.

If you do not buy “acceptable coverage” you will be taxed and the money taken from your financial assets!

The Federal Government decides what is  “acceptable coverage”.

If an individual refuses to purchase a government imposed health insurance plan, then the IRS will tax and fine them and the money goes into the Health Insurance Exchange Trust Fund within the Treasury of the United States under Section 207.  

I will not be buying a  government approved or acceptable insurance.

I will not be buying any products or services from organizations, banks, insurance and drug companies,  hospitals and doctors who support this bill of compulsory health insurance.

I will vote against any politician of any political party that tells me how to spend my money and what I must buy.

I will target for defeat President Obama and  his progressive radical socialist Democratic Party.

Join the Second American Revolution!

What Is the Free-Market Approach to Health Care Reform?

Will health care be compulsory? Check out Obama on TV tonight

from washingtonpost.com

“…President Obama’s dream of dramatically remaking the nation’s health-care system is still a long way from reality. But if lawmakers can reach an accord, one thing is virtually certain: For the first time ever, every American would be required to carry health insurance.

The requirement, known as an individual mandate, is among the most far-reaching changes envisioned this year by those pushing for health-care reform. And it is one of the few common threads running through all three bills being considered in Congress, greatly increasing the likelihood it will survive the legislative process. Obama continued Tuesday to push lawmakers struggling with the large costs and scope of health legislation to move forward, pronouncing reform to be “closer than ever.”

Just as drivers must purchase auto insurance, the medical system of the future would put responsibility for health coverage first and foremost on every adult.

For the vast majority of Americans who have health insurance, the change would mean little more than submitting a form with their tax returns proving that the plan they carry meets certain minimum standards. Many of the nation’s 47 million uninsured people, however, would be required to purchase a health policy or face financial penalties, though waivers or discounts would be provided for lower-income Americans. …”

Health bill could allow government access to personal financial records

Chief Congressional Correspondent

“…Privacy concerns are generating another round of complaints about health care legislation being considered in the House.

The bill calls for the secretary of health and human services to be able to quickly determine a person’s financial responsibility and eligibility for health care services, “which may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identification card.”

The language has been long sought after by some health reform advocates who say it will enable more streamlined and effective medical care, but the words are chilling to privacy advocates who do not want the government tracking their medical history.

“That provision is extremely worrisome,” said Wayne Crews, vice president for policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a libertarian think tank. “What kind of information would they collect?” …”

“…Diana Furchtgott-Roth, an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank, said the provision in the House bill that calls for an ID card actually goes much further and would allow the government access to a patient’s bank account, in order to determine ability to pay.

“What I see as being problematic is that the government can get into your bank account and see how much is in there,” Furchtgott-Roth said. …”
