Exclamation  ObamaCare passes House of Representatives
US healthcare plans voted through as Barack Obama wins quest to reform coverage

Mar 22 2010

A CENTURY-OLD battle for near-universal health coverage in America has effectively ended after US politicians agreed to accept President Barack Obama's healthcare reform bill.

The House of Representatives voted the landmark legislation through by 219 votes to 212 - a move that will extend healthcare coverage to 32 million Americans without it and crack down on insurance company abuses.

It caps a year-long quest by President Obama and the Democrats to overhaul the country's health system and reshape a sector that represents one sixth of the giant US economy.

President Obama - who is expected to sign the Bill later - said afterwards that the vote proved "we can still tackle big things".

He added:
Quote:"We proved that this government - a government of the people and by the people - still works for the people."

The rest of the article can be read here.


So the health care reform is official - what happens next?

Catastrophic. Nothing good will come from that bill.

Interestingly, its to be signed today. 3/22...reminds me of Skull & Bones...symbol of death...get the picture?

Edit-- today is actually 3/23 so its not as significant as I thought, but still not a good thing, imo.

It's not a Republic if a majority of congressmen can vote your liberties away. But I get your parallel here Smile

It's bad, but pretty much all legislation is bad nowadays. People saying it's the end of the country is hyperbolic and neglects the point that the country has been broken for a long time. "All and all, it's just another brick in the wall."

RE: ObamaCare passes House of Representatives
wonder how many places will start doing this now -

Quote:The latest hidden mandatory add-on is a "health" charge added to restaurant bills. As far as I know, this scam cropped up first in San Francisco, but you can count on it to spread.

The rationale for this one is to cover the employers' mandatory contribution to the City's "Healthy San Francisco" health-coverage system. The charge actually is levied on employers, but at least some restaurants are adding a few dollars or percentage points to each customer's bill to cover this charge.

The restaurants' excuse for assessing this charge separately is to let customers know how much they're paying for employees' health coverage. That's the same excuse hotels use when they add "resort" or "housekeeping" fees to unsuspecting guests' room bills. It's the same excuse airlines would use to exclude fuel surcharges from their advertised fares if the Department of Transportation would allow them. And it's sheer nonsense. Employees' health insurance is no less of a cost of doing business than rent, property taxes, food costs, security services and all the other inputs businesses require to operate. To single out health care for a separate surcharge is unwarranted.

RE: ObamaCare passes House of Representatives
I am hopeful that good may come from this. They are taking a huge leap by forcing this now when so many people are opposed to it. It could just set off the spark that is needed to kick the bastards out of here and take the country back.
