Obama Care as it was explained to me

"Pg 317 & 321: The gov. will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception."
Remember members of Congress are already exempt from SS. They have a separate system they will live off of and won't be effect by Obama care.
Page 425, line 4-12 Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every 5 years. (Death counseling)

e Pg 58&59: The gov. will have access to an individuals bank acc and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those acc.
"Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees."
"Page 272. Section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age."
"Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. Residents, even if they are here illegally."
It's a thousand page bill. There are no simple terms. I gave you highlights.
.some of the most brilliant people I know cannot explain it. I am not totally against the basic premise of making sure that all people can have affordable health care. The amount each person will have to pay will be on a sliding scale of their ability to pay....with the rest subsidized by our tax money. Sort of like subsidized housing. Besides that, people can no longer be excluded from health insurance due to a pre-exisiting condition. Students can now stay on their parents health insurance to age 26. ObamaCare will cover those folks who don't already have insurance on their own. Now that is the simple explanation but there is so much more in play that is so complicated that I do not fully understand....and that is an understatement. Many other countries already have this type of ObamaCare in place...Canada, Australia and England to name a few.
