Of course, it was no aboutt the version of the law that finally passed, that version originated in the U.S. Senate and was H.R. 3590, originally a House bill on a totally unrelated matter. This was one of the first ruses by the Democrats designed to bypass the Constitutional requirement that all revenue bills begin in the House.
In my original article titled “The Truth About the Health Care Bills” I stated that “The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.” I was attacked by the left immediately for making inaccurate claims about what the bill said, yet everything I predicted has either happened or is in the process of being implemented.
I also concluded in that original article that “this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.”
In addition, I stated that “This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of the Obama administration of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.”
H.R. 3590 is over 2700 pages and in many respects is worse than the original version. It establishes 138 new federal commissions and agencies; all under the control of Obama. The law is being used to violate the 1st Amendment rights of religious institutions and religious owners of businesses. It violates the 4th Amendment by giving the IRS access to our personal information, and we all know how careful it is with such information.
As for Obama’s promises, people are losing their insurance that they were told they could keep and they will also lose their doctors. But, of course, our President has fixed that. His majesty has ordered insurance companies to renew the policies, but just until after the 2014 elections. That is the way this President fixes things for the American people.
Now, how is he going to fix the lie that insurance premiums would go down when they are going up, and the lie that health care costs would go down when they are rising? Then there is the lie that thousands of new jobs would be created in the health care industry when in fact almost 50,000 health care workers have been laid off so far this year. Of course, new jobs as navigators are being created for Obama loyalists in Acorn, Planned Parenthood, and the Urban League. Navigators for a system that doesn’t work.
Thus, I reiterate what I said in 2009. This law was never about providing affordable health care to Americans; it was and still is about giving the Federal government power to control the lives of Americans. The ACA was designed to fail so the ultimate goal can be achieved, total government control over healthcare, i.e. socialized medicine.
