House Passes Health Care Bill
In a tight vote, the House passed its sweeping health bill late Saturday, marking the biggest victory yet for Democrats in their drive to create near-universal health insurance.
The bill passed by a 220-215 margin. It came after House leaders made a surprise last-minute concession that blocks abortion from the new government insurance plan in order to win over wavering Democrats.
Its passage moves Congress closer to the biggest expansion of the social safety net since the Medicare insurance program for the elderly was created in 1965. The measure spends $1.01 trillion over a decade to provide health insurance to an additional 36 million Americans and creates a new public insurance plan to compete with private insurers by 2013. It requires most Americans to carry insurance, creates a new exchange where they can shop for it and gives the lowest earners tax credits to help them pay for it.
ObamaCare is a Trojan Horse
It will allow government to control every aspect of public and private life. The first clue to this designed oppression is if you don’t buy insurance you are threatened with jail.
I submit a more accurate direction is if you are part of a certain group and don’t buy insurance you will go to jail or more likely fined into poverty.
The writing is on the wall – Obama’s Number One goal is “Wealth Redistribution,” not health care. Once that travesty is achieved then it’s game, set and match.
Everyone equally miserable – what a world.
