Not long ago I published a list of elements of the original Obamacare bill that upset a lot of people who accused me of publishing lies about it, but the original bill—now something in the area of five different versions that the Senate and House will consider on their return—was every bit an abomination as the new ones.
Since then, a lot more people have undertaken the trial of reading the more than 1,000 pages intended, we’re told, to “reform” healthcare in America. One of them is Dr. Stephen Fraser. He recently wrote his Senator Evan Bayh (D) citing page by page why the current version of Obamacare is not a reform, but a total corruption of our current system.
Here are just a few of four pages of citations that will doom healthcare in America while putting the federal government in charge of the most intimate aspects of everyone’s lives.
Page 22 of the HC Bill: Mandates that the government will audit books of all employers that self insure!!
Page 30 Sec 123 of HC bill: THERE WILL BE A GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE that decides what treatments/benefits you get.

Page 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors, doesn't matter what specialty you have, you'll all be paid the same!
Page 253 Line 10-18: Government sets value of Doctor's time, profession, judgment, etc. Literally the value of humans.
There are three more pages of this line-by-line analysis and all of them represent the worst aspects of a communist system of healthcare with horrendous invasions of the privacy of all Americans.
So, when ordinary Americans show up to protest this vile imposition of enslavement by the government, they are called “mobs” and “un-American” by the DEMOCRATS that want to impose this monstrosity on us.
This bill must be killed.
These Democrats must be replaced in the 2010 midterm elections.
This President must be resisted every day of those remaining in his term.
