More Health Care Bill Stuff

So, recently found an overview of HR3200 from the Liberty Counsel. It's pretty scary. For instance:

Sec. 163, Pg. 58-59 beginning at line 5 - Government will have real-time access to individual’s finances & a National ID health care card will be issued! Sec. 163, Pg. 59, Lines 21-24 - Government will have direct access to your bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.

In other words, the government can access your money any time it wants to. The proponents say that the public option will not be mandatory. But:

Sec. 313, Pg. 149, Lines 16-23 - ANY employer with payroll $400,000 and above who does not provide public option pays 8% tax on all payroll. Sec. 313, Pg. 150, Lines 9-13 - Businesses with payroll between $251,000 and $400,000 who do not provide public option pay 2-6% tax on all payroll.

They sure penalize businesses that do not use the public option.

Sec. 1233, Pg. 430, Lines 11-15 - The government will decide what level of treatment you will have at end of life, according to preset methods (not individually decided).

The government decides when you die by restricting what kind of treatment you get when you get old. It goes on and on... And I did go ahead and compare the overview with the actual bill. The sections and lines I looked at did generally match up with what the overview said. I didn't go through all of them, but enough that I trust the overview. Though I have to wonder at our law makers writing a bill that is nearly as long as the Bible in legalese that is nearly impossible to understand... Also, read this message from Rick Joyner, he points out some important things for Christians to think about. That's how I found the overview from the Liberty Counsel. I wanted to check and make sure the claims listed were true. So, this bill is pretty scary. It is a deliberate attack on our Freedom. There is no way we can allow this to pass. So, contact your congressmen and tell them that you will not support them if they vote for this abomination.
