PRESS RELEASE


 HOUSE POISED TO VOTE ON GOVERNMENT

TAKE-OVER OF HEALTH CARE 

By Lee Bechtel, NHF National Lobbyist

November 5, 2009

     House Democrats are scheduled to vote on H.R.3962, the Pelosi/Waxman government-run, health-care takeover bill on this Saturday, November 7th!  It is urgent that you take immediate action to protect your health freedoms now.

     We ask all NHF members and others reading this to contact their Representative in opposition to this assault on American's health-care freedom of choice.  Unless it is held up or voted down by the full House of Representatives, this could be the last chance to register your opposition to this legislation.

     People can use the NHF webpage to contact their Congressman or -woman by e-mail, phone, and fax at http://www.thenhf.com/government_affairs_federal.html.

     Remember, despite all of the media hype and lies about this bill being a “good thing” for Americans, it is nothing more than a huge expansion of the Disease-Care System already existing in this country.  It is easy to go along with the starry-eyed crowd, but it takes real character and courage to stand up for what’s right and to oppose what is wrong.  And this bill is flat-out wrong!

     Among other things, H.R.3962 will:

  •  
    • Force nearly every American to buy “acceptable” health insurance, or else face a tax penalty (2.5 percent of income) for not buying government-sanctioned health insurance./1

    • Create 110 new Federal agencies, commissions, councils, and programs, a huge bureaucratic burden upon the economy and guaranteed to be corrupt and inefficient.

    • Establish an institutionalized bureaucracy to decide what medical treatments will or will not be available to Americans, and whose recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services will then be considered by him or her as to whether or not they will be accepted./2 In short, one political appointee will have the final say in writing some 300 million Americans’ health-insurance policies!  All this power in one pair of hands is nothing but a recipe for disaster and corrupt power.

    • Deny the right to keep health information private between health-care providers and patients, since the “privacy” rule permits data sharing for many purposes without the patient’s consent, giving the Federal HHS Secretary access to every American’s personal health records, including psychotherapy notes./3

    • Bankrupt an already bankrupt country with costs well over $2 trillion between 2010 and 2020, and a concomitant reduction in Medicare benefits for seniors.  As another commentator wrote, “Sorry, but if you want universal healthcare, you can't also have your Amtrak subsidies, or car company bailouts, or troops in 130 countries, or your war in Afghanistan, or your FDA, OSHA, FCC, your Head Start programs, food stamps, winter fuel subsidies, etc., etc., ad infinitum."/4

     This is not reform, it simply a vast expansion of the current corrupt Disease-Care System to more helpless victims.

     Make sure your elected officials hear from you now regarding this critical legislation.  Let's preserve health-care freedom of choice at all costs.  There is no time to waste!

2See Sections 223 (Health Benefits Advisory Committee) and 224 (Process for adoption of recommendations) per AHCAA.

3 Under Federal HIPAA privacy rules, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary has legal access to every patient’s medical, psychotherapy, and other health records. Covered entities such as doctors, hospitals, and the like are required by law to disclose personal health information to the Secretary (or his or her agents) to make sure the HIPAA rule is being complied with. See 45 C.F.R. Subtitle A, Subpart E – Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, Sections 164.502(a)(2)(ii) (“Required disclosures”) and 164.508(a)(2)(ii) (exception to “Uses and disclosures for which an authorization is required”) for support.
