Last night, H.R. 2, to repeal the Obama Healthcare Law, was introduced in the House of Representatives. The bill is scheduled to come up for a vote on Wednesday, January 12th. Repeal would protect Americans from the rationing that would deny or limit life-saving health care. Unless the Obama Healthcare Law is repealed or dramatically altered, the following will occur:
1. Bureaucrats in Washington (the Department of Health and Human Services, based on recommendations by the Independent Payment Advisory Board) will be able to dictate what treatment your doctor or hospital can – and can’t – give you through so-called “quality and efficiency measures.”
2. As Medicare is slashed by billions of dollars, federal bureaucrats will be empowered to deny or limit older Americans' choice of adding their own money, if they wish, to get unrationed insurance.
3. Consumers will be denied the choice of plans offered by insurers who allow their customers to spend what state bureaucrats deem an “excessive or unjustified” amount for their health insurance.
