Senate Dems reach 60 vote threshold on health bill

 By DAVID ESPO AND RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR (AP)

“…Nelson, D-Neb., said Saturday he made his decision after winning fresh concessions to limit the availability of abortions in insurance sold in newly created exchanges, as well as tens of million in federal Medicaid funds for his home state.  

“I know this is hard for some of my colleagues to accept and I appreciate their right to disagree,” he said at a news conference in the Capitol, referring to the abortion issue. “But I would not have voted for this bill without these provisions.”  

He also noted he had successfully fended off attempts to provide for a government-run insurance option to compete with private insurers.  

The Congressional Budget Office estimated the revised measure would lower deficits by $132 billion over a decade, with the possibility of much higher reductions in the subsequent decade.  

At the White House, Obama cited those numbers in hailing the legislation as “the largest deficit reduction plan in a decade.” In a brief statement, the president also said the country is “on the cusp of making health care reform a reality.”  

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091219/ap_on_bi_ge/us_health_care_overhaul 

  

The only way to control health care costs is to increase competition in the health insurance and provider markets and empower individuals to chose affordable, portable, and individual insurance plans that meet their needs.  

Markets work, government monopolies do not.  

Medicare is going broke and doctors refuse to see Medicaid patients. 

Social Security+Medicare Projections

   

  

The Federal Government refuses to pay their bills and shift cost to those with private medical insurance.  

Government health care will lead to even higher medical costs.  

The American people will revolt over this bill once they learn what is in it.  

Once the American people find out that they will be required or forced to buy a government mandated health insurance plan from an insurance company  that is very expensive because it is community rate and must take all people who apply, President Obama will lose the youth vote and white vote for good. 

If you do not buy the forced mandated government approved health insurance plan, you will be fined by the IRS. 

Instead of consumer sovereignty or the freedom to choose what you buy with your hard-earned money, the Federal Government will dictate what you must buy–a very expensive community rated health insurance plan from a large insurance company. 

This will lead to the eventual elimination of individual high deductible health plans  (HDHP) that are combined with a Health Saving Plan (HSA) that are very popular with the American people because they are both affordable, portable and enables them to control their health care costs. 

Health Savings Accounts – Part 2 – HDHP Insurance

  

John Stossel – Insurance, Health Care, Government, and Rising Prices

If you do not buy health insurance plan, you will be fined by the IRS and the money taken out of your checking account or other assets. 

This health care bill is tyrannical, unconstitutional, and un-American. 

How dare they? 

They did it in Massachusetts and this is the result: 

Don’t Want Health Insurance? It’ll Cost You

  

The progressive radical socialist Democratic Party have already lost the conservative and libertarian, independent, and those on Medicare that comprise over 80% of the voters.  

This is indeed committing political suicide for the simple reason that the core political base of the Democratic party consisting of blacks and liberals/progressives which make up 20% of voters.  

Thank you progressive radical socialists of the Democrat Party for committing political suicide.  

There will be day of reckoning.  

In six years the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party will be a very small minority party consisting of progressive radial socialists that at most comprise 20% of the American electorate.  

The words hubris and marginalized would be a fair description of the Democratic Party.  

The irony is that if the reader President Obama has shown some leadership he could have easily obtained a health care reform bill that would have received over 90 votes in the Senate and 400 in the House by building a consensus bill that has the support of the American people.  

Instead his fatal conceit and unconstrained progressive radical socialist vision lead him down the road to serfdom and the end of his presidency.  

Mr. President you are now a lame duck and a marked man for selling out to the special interests including the large insurance companies, drug companies, unions, and the personal injury trail lawyers–you’re a hypocrite, phony and disgrace–a reader not a leader–little hope and change few want. 

You have lost the trust and confidence of the American people who by a vast majority do not support this unconstitutional health care reform bill.  

Congratulations Mr. President, the conservatives, libertarians, independents, those on Medicare, Republicans, Reagan Democrats and soon the young will be working passionately  for your defeat and the defeat of the progressive radical socialists in the Democratic Party in 2010, 2012, and 2016.  

“It is one of the saddest spectacles of our time to see a great democratic movement support a policy which must lead to the destruction of democracy and which meanwhile can benefit only a minority of the masses who support it. Yet it is this support from the Left of the tendencies toward monopoly which make them irresistible and the prospects of the future so dark. So long as labor continues to assist in the destruction of the only order under which at least some degree of independence and freedom has been secured to every worker, there is indeed little hope for the future. The labor leader who now proclaim so loudly that they have “done once and for all with the mad competitive system” are proclaiming the doom of the freedom of the individual. …”

The Health Bill Is Scary

Tom Coburn

“… My 25 years as a practicing physician have shown me what happens when government attempts to practice medicine: Doctors respond to government coercion instead of patient cues, and patients die prematurely. Even if the public option is eliminated from the bill, these onerous rationing provisions will remain intact. 

 

For instance, the Reid bill (in sections 3403 and 2021) explicitly empowers Medicare to deny treatment based on cost. An Independent Medicare Advisory Board created by the bill—composed of permanent, unelected and, therefore, unaccountable members—will greatly expand the rationing practices that already occur in the program. Medicare, for example, has limited cancer patients’ access to Epogen, a costly but vital drug that stimulates red blood cell production. It has limited the use of virtual, and safer, colonoscopies due to cost concerns. And Medicare refuses medical claims at twice the rate of the largest private insurers. 

Section 6301 of the Reid bill creates new comparative effectiveness research (CER) programs. CER panels have been used as rationing commissions in other countries such as the U.K., where 15,000 cancer patients die prematurely every year according to the National Cancer Intelligence Network. CER panels here could effectively dictate coverage options and ration care for plans that participate in the state insurance exchanges created by the bill. 

Additionally, the Reid bill depends on the recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force in no fewer than 14 places. This task force was responsible for advising women under 50 to not undergo annual mammograms. The administration claims the task force recommendations do not carry the force of law, but the Reid bill itself contradicts them in section 2713. The bill explicitly states, on page 17, that health insurance plans “shall provide coverage for” services approved by the task force. This chilling provision represents the government stepping between doctors and patients. When the government asserts the power to provide care, it also asserts the power to deny care. …”

High-Decuctible Health Plan

“…A high-deductible health plan (HDHP) is a health insurance plan with lower premiums and higher deductibles than a traditional health plan. 

As related to health savings accounts

Participating in a “qualified” HDHP is a requirement for health savings accounts and other tax-advantaged programs. In this context, HDHPs are plans with a minimum deductible of $1,150 for self and $2,300 for self-and-family coverage. The maximum amount out-of-pocket limits for HDHPs is $5,800 for self and $11,600 for self-and-family enrollment. The Internal Revenue Service released the 2010 amounts on May 15, 2009 via Revenue Procedure (Rev. Proc.) 2009-29, which will be modified each year to reflect the change in cost of living.

Year Minimum deductible (single) Minimum deductible (family) Maximum out-of-pocket (single) Maximum out-of-pocket (family)
2005 $1,000 $2,000 $5,100 $10,200
2006 $1,050 $2,100 $5,250 $10,500
2007 $1,100 $2,200 $5,500 $11,000
2008 $1,100 $2,200 $5,600 $11,200
2009 $1,150 $2,300 $5,800 $11,600
2010 $1,200 $2,400 $5,950 $11,900

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-deductible_health_plan 

  

Health Savings Accounts

“…A health savings account (HSA), is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to taxpayers in the United States who are enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). The funds contributed to the account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit. Unlike a flexible spending account (FSA), funds roll over and accumulate year to year if not spent. HSAs are owned by the individual, which differentiates them from the company-owned Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) that is an alternate tax-deductible source of funds paired with HDHPs. Funds may be used to pay for qualified medical expenses at any time without federal tax liability. Withdrawals for non-medical expenses are treated very similarly to those in an IRA in that they may provide tax advantages if taken after retirement age, and they incur penalties if taken earlier. These accounts are a component of consumer driven health care. 

Proponents of HSAs believe that they are an important reform that will help reduce the growth of health care costs and increase the efficiency of the health care system. According to proponents, HSAs encourage saving for future health care expenses, allow the patient to receive needed care without a gate keeper to determine what benefits are allowed and make consumers more responsible for their own health care choices through the required High-Deductible Health Plan. 

Opponents of HSAs say they worsen, rather than improve, the U.S. health system’s problems because people who are healthy will leave insurance plans while people who have health problems will avoid HSAs. There is also debate about consumer satisfaction with these plans. …” 

“…Deposits to an HSA may be made by any policyholder of an HSA-eligible high-deductible health plan or by their employer, or any other person. If an employer makes deposits to such a plan on behalf of its employees, non-discrimination rules still apply — that is, all employees must be treated equally. However, if contributions are made through a Section 125 plan, non-discrimination rules do not apply. Employers may treat full-time and part-time employees differently, and employers may treat individual and family participants differently. (The treatment of employees who are not enrolled in a HSA-eligible high-deductible plan is not considered for non-discrimination purposes.) Also, for 2007, employers may contribute more for non-highly compensated employees than highly compensated employees. 

Contributions from an employer or employee may be made on a pre-tax basis through an employer. If this option is not available through the employer, contributions may be made on a post-tax basis and then used to decrease gross taxable income on the following year’s Form 1040. The main advantage of making pre-tax contributions is the FICA and Medicare Tax deduction, which amounts to a savings of 7.65% each to the employer and employee. The self-employed must pay self-employment tax on their contributions. Regardless of the method or tax savings associated with the deposit, the deposits may only be made for persons covered under an HSA-eligible high-deductible plan, with no other coverage beyond certain qualified additional coverage. 

Initially, the annual maximum deposit to an HSA was the lesser of the actual deductible or specified IRS limits. Congress later abolished the limit based on the deductible and set statutory limits for maximum contributions. For example, the 2008 statutory limits are $2,900 individual and $5,800 family. 

A catch-up provision also applies for plan participants who are age 55 or over, allowing the IRS limit to be increased.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag.[7] 

There are several ways that funds in an HSA can be withdrawn. Some HSAs include a debit card, some supply checks for account holder use, and some allow for a reimbursement process similar to medical insurance. Most HSAs have more than one possible method for withdrawal. The exact method of withdrawal varies from HSA to HSA and can be considered a marketing design issue. Checks and debits do not have to be made payable to the provider. Funds can be withdrawn for any reason, but withdrawals that are not for documented qualified medical expenses are subject to income taxes and a 10% penalty. The 10% tax penalty is waived for persons who have reached the age of 65 or have become disabled at the time of the withdrawal. Then, only income tax is paid on the withdrawal, and in effect the account has grown tax deferred (similar to an IRA). Medical expenses continue to be tax free. 

Account holders are required to retain documentation for their qualified medical expenses. Failure to retain and provide documentation could cause the IRS to rule withdrawals were not for qualified medical expenses and subject the taxpayer to additional penalties.[8] 

When a person dies, the funds in their HSA are transferred to the beneficiary named for the account. If the beneficiary is a surviving spouse, the transfer is tax-free. …”

“The tradegy of collectivist thought is that, while it starts out to make reason supreme, it ends by destroying reason because it misconceives the process on which the growth of reason depends. It may indeed be said that it is the paradox of all collectivist doctrine and its demand for “conscious” control or “conscious” planning that they necessarily lead to the demand that the mind of some individual should rule supreme–while only the individualist approach to social phenomena makes us recognize the superindividual forces which guide the growth of reason. Individualism is thus an attitude of humility before this social process and of tolerance to other opinions and is the exact opposite of that intellectual hubris which is at the root of the demand for comprehensive direction of the social process.

“Once you admit that the individual is merely a means to serve the ends of the higher entity called society or the nation, most of those features of totalitarian regimes which horrify us follow of necessity. From the collectivist standpoint intollerance and brutal suppression of dissent, the complete disregard of the life and happiness of the individual, are essential and unavoidable consequences of this basic premise, and the collectivist can admit this and at the same time claim that his system is superior to one in which the “slefish” interests of the individuals are allowed to obstruct the full realization of the ends the community pursues. …”

The American people made a big mistake when they elected Barack Obama to the office of President of the United States of America.

The American people must correct their big mistake by opposing his policies and proposed bills on health care, cap and trade energy tax, comprehensive immigration reform, and government spending, deficits, bailouts, stimulus packages, subsidies and regulations.

The American people must educate themselves about the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party led by Barack Obama and oppose their agenda for America.

Your life and soul may depend upon it.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

Obama’s ‘Christian Nation’

By Monte Kuligowski

“…In full context of Obama’s statements made in Turkey on April 7, the President did at least acknowledge the following:

 

I think that where — where there’s the most promise of building stronger U.S.-Turkish relations is in the recognition that Turkey and the United States can build a model partnership in which a predominantly Christian nation and a predominantly Muslim nation, a Western nation and a nation that straddles two continents — that we can create a modern international community that is respectful, that is secure, that is prosperous; that there are not tensions, inevitable tensions, between cultures, which I think is extraordinarily important.

 

By referring to America as a “predominantly Christian nation” Obama is speaking in terms of population, not of the religion’s influence on national morality, policy and law. America is populated primarily by Christians. In that sense Obama is correct.

 

Sad to say, Obama is also correct in stating that we are no longer a Christian nation. I argue that we are a country divided and that two principal nations currently coexist within the same country. Those two dueling nations have irreconcilable differences on the big questions of life and fundamentally consist of left versus right.

 

I understand that the word “nation” is used interchangeably with the word “country,” but at its core nation means a group a people united by a common faith, morality, set of customs and traditions and language. In the fundamental meaning of nation, we once were a nation which operated from a system of Judeo-Christian morality — that is, a common faith provided the basis for right and wrong.

 

That historical fact, Obama refuses to acknowledge. Obama’s words, “Whatever we once were,” seem to imply that what we once were is not important or perhaps that one cannot objectively determine what we once were. Either way, Obama’s lack of basic understanding of American liberty is highlighted.

 

Additionally, Obama is inaccurate to say that currently we are a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation, a Buddhist nation, etc. Approximately 76 percent of adult Americans identify themselves as Christians. Historically, countries don’t do well consisting as a collection of mini nations; unless, of course, a strongman rises up to provide forced order and peace. …”
