First let me say that I am against this healthcare bill. That said, this video is total bull-crap. The second item mentioned is "Rationing" Either the author does not understand the term cost sharing (co-pay), which make him a complete idiot. Or, he has purposely twisted that verbiage to benifit his little video.
I hate this healthcare bill but crap like this will not help us stop it!
I could only stomach about half of that. If it is true, than I am pissed, if it is false, I am still pissed because it sure as hell looks like something the government would try.
I agree, I'm also against any mandated healthcare, but I really don't think spreading untrue conspiracy theory propaganda is going to help our cause. I mean why bother with that garbage when there is so much overtly wrong with what is known to be true?
To figure out how much is BS just read the pages he References in the video.
No, I have not.
I haven't read the health care bill, but if the video narrator is high lighting the fact that there is a finite supply of money to spend on government health care, then there will have to be rationing. How is that bull crap?
I went and looked at the bill, this is what is says. You are correct.
(A) ANNUALLIMITATION.The cost-shar-
ing incurred under the essential benefits pack-
age with respect to an individual (or family) for
a year does not exceed the applicable level spec-
ified in subparagraph (B).
(B) APPLICABLELEVEL.The applicable
level specified in this subparagraph for Y1 is
$5,000 for an individual and $10,000 for a
family. Such levels shall be increased (rounded
to the nearest $100) for each subsequent year
by the annual percentage increase in the Con-
sumer Price Index (United States city average)
applicable to such year.
I don't like it either but they should not lie about it. Of course that tactic always worked for the demoncats, maybe the republicans finally woke up and decided to play some dirty pool.
