Sen. Democratic Appropriations Committee to Hold Public Discussion on the President’s New Health Care Reform Plan

Obamacare Could Cover 500,000 Uninsured and Create 285,000 Jobs HealthcareThe state Senate Democratic Appropriations Committee will hold a public discussion on the budgetary and economic impact of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s health care reform plan.
The round table discussion will be held TOMORROW, Thursday, Jan. 24 at noon in the Mayor's Reception Room (Room 202) at City Hall in Philadelphia, PA.
Under the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid expansion in Pennsylvania could:
  • Infuse $4 billion federal dollars into Pennsylvania’s budget.
  • Provide access to health insurance to a half a million Pennsylvanians.
  • Create an estimated 285,000 jobs over 10 years.
  • Unburden hospitals with $1 billion in uncompensated care costs.
  • Reduce burden on counties who currently provide mental services to the uninsured.
The discussion will be opened by U.S. Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz. Rep. Schwartz will provide the federal perspective on the Affordable Care Act. The event will also feature a presentation from Robin Rubowitz, an Associate Director for the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured.
Other confirmed participants include:
  • Joanne Grossi - Regional Director, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • Pam Clarke, VP of Managed Care And Finance, Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania
  • Patrick Norton and Al Black from University of Pennsylvania Health System
  • Mike Rosenstein- Pres., Managed Care Coalition
  • Richard Weishaupt or Kristen Dama - Community Legal Services
  • Ann Bacharach - Special Project Director, Pa. Health Law Project
  • Dr. Don Schwarz - Commissioner, Phila. Health Dept/Deputy Mayor for Health and Opportunity
  • Dr. Arthur Evans, Department of Behavioral Health
  • Sharon Ward - Pa. Budget and Policy Center
  • Antoinette Kraus - Pa. Health Access Network
  • Ali Kromley - SEIU
The Affordable Care Act will have a far-reaching effect on Pennsylvania's economy and health care delivery. Implementation of this health care plan will mean expanded health insurance to more uninsured Pennsylvanians, the largest investment of new dollars into the state budget and a massive number of jobs created.

Dont leave out how many business will terminate employees to stay under the figure Obummer came up with. And the fact that the ones still working will likely be cut back to 29 hours a week because the great wise one says anyone working 30 hours or more has to be covered. And the 716 billion he needs to rob from medicare (yes. This is why he dont want the repubs to touch his spending account known as medicare). And the tax increase for over a million small businesses. The "rationing" of health care especially to senior citizens. Free health care for illegal immigrants. Free abortion services. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government. However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide…

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law It doesn’t stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

The 10th Amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights.

However, the government has the "99%" thinking that anyone that disagrees with them is mentally unbalanced.
