O.K., let's get down to the worst of the worst in terms of lying about the Health Care Bill (HR 3200).
"Pulling The Plug On Granny!"
"Government Will Tell you what wheelchair to buy" (!?)
"The Government gives you no choice!"
"The Government MANDATES everything!"
Pg 102 Lines 12-18 HC Bill - Medicaid Eligible Individual will be automat. enrolled in Medicaid.. No choice. Who wouldn't want to be in as many insurance programs as possible, if that's what it take to get complete coverage?! And only those who have not opted for one of the other plans will be automatically enrolled. I call that consideration on the government's part.
Pg 124 lines 24-25 HC No company can sue Govt on price fixing. No "judicial review" against Govt Monopoly. The Government has already stated that increases will be based on the Consumer Price Index.
Pg 127 Lines 1-16 HC Bill - Doctors/ #AMA - The Govt will tell YOU what you can make. Payment rates are established, yes, but the government is not FORCING doctors to join in the plans.
Pg 145 Line 15-17 An Employer MUST auto enroll employees into public opt plan. NO CHOICE . The employer provides for enrollment, not mandates enrollment. Provides simply means that enrollment is an option they might prefer.
Pg 149 Lines 16-24 ANY Employer w/ payroll 400k & above who does not prov. pub opt. pays 8% tax on all payroll. Here's the actual wording:
SEC. 313. EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTIONS IN LIEU OF COVERAGE. IN GENERAL.--A contribution is made in accordance with this section with respect to an employee if such contribution is equal to an amount equal to 8 percent of the average wages paid by the employer during the period of enrollment . Does it say anything about 400k. What it does say is that the employer wants make contribution in lieu of coverage, the compensation must equal 8% of the employee's average wages.
Pg 150 Lines 9-13 Biz w payroll btw 251k & 400k who doesn't provide public opt pays 2-6% tax on all payroll Pg 167 Lines 18-23 ANY individual who doesn't have acceptable HC according to Govt will be taxed 2.5% of income.
Again, there is NO TAX mentioned in pg. 150. Distortion: individual pays 2.5% of the EXCESS of the taxpayer's modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year, over 'the amount of gross income specified in 4 section 6012(a)(1) with respect to the taxpayer.
Pg 170 Lines 1-3 Any NONRESIDENT Alien is exempt from individual taxes. (Americans will pay). Do NONRESIDENT Aliens pay any taxes at all? No. That's because they're most likely visitors. Do we actually tax tourists according to their incomes?
Pg 195 Officers & employees of HC Admin (GOVT) will have access to ALL Americans financial and personal records. NO. They may have limited access to establish and verify the appropriate amount of any affordability credit. And this does NOT apply to all Americans
Pg 203 Line 14-15 HC - "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax" Yes, it says that. Yes, just before:
"...imposed by this chapter for purposes of determining the amount of any credit under this chapter or for purposes of section 55.''.
