What’s really in Obama’s health care reform bill? Almost no one knows, and here’s why: It’s 1,017 pages long and written in an alien form of bureaucratic English that can barely be decoded by earthlings.
And yet, astonishingly, a U.S. Army translator has been found who speaks “Washington Doublespeak” and he was kind enough to decode the bill and post his plain-language findings over at FreeRepublic.com
Some of the nice things about the plan:
Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!
Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services. (Surprise. Obama did lie)
Page 58: Every person will be issued a National ID Healthcard.
Page 59: The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.
Page 95: The Government will pay ACORN and Americorps to sign up individuals for Government-run Health Care plan.
Page 170: Any NON-RESIDENT alien is exempt from individual taxes (Americans will pay for them).
Page 203: “The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax.” Yes, it really says that.
Page 425: Government will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. Mandatory. Appears to lock in estate taxes ahead of time.
Page 494: Government will cover mental health services: defining, creating and rationing those services.
The Page 494 item becomes important when you remember the CDC, under the Clinton’s, of course, declared that gun owners were mentally unstable.
