on page 16 of new health bill

http://www.ibdeditorials.com/IBDArticles.aspx?id=332548165656854

Congress: It didn't take long to run into an "uh-oh" moment when reading the House's "health care for all Americans" bill. Right there on Page 16 is a provision making individual private medical insurance illegal.
It took just 16 pages of reading to find this naked attempt by the political powers to increase their reach. It's scary to think how many more breaches of liberty we'll come across in the final 1,002.

Opponents of the health care plan have argued that government-subsidized coverage will mean the death of the private insurance market.

IBD warns that employers may stop providing private plans and instead opt for Washington's coverage when tempted by a public option that is 30 percent to 40 percent cheaper than existing premiums.

According to the report, The Lewin Group has estimated that 120 million or more may lose group coverage at their places of employment and be forced to accept the government option – leaving private insurance companies with less than 50 million customers.

"What wasn't known until now is that the bill itself will kill the market for private individual coverage by not letting any new policies be written after the public option becomes law," IBD states. "The legislation is also likely to finish off health savings accounts, a goal that Democrats have had for years. They want to crush that alternative because nothing gives individuals more control over their medical care, and the government less, than HSAs."

With health savings accounts out of the picture, the daily warns that welfare state expansion is imminent.

"The public option won't be an option for many, but rather a mandate for buying government care," IBD states. "A free people should be outraged at this advance of soft tyranny."

The report blasts Washington, saying it "does not have constitutional or moral authority to outlaw private markets in which parties voluntarily participate. It shouldn't be killing business opportunities, or limiting choices, or legislating major changes in Americans' lives."

I see this is the latest hysterical talking point from Michele Bachmann, now picked up by members of the Teabag American community (aka sheeple).

It very obviously says that after five years, private insurance has to be sold through the exchange and will have to meet minimum conditions for coverage. Reading comprehension: It's good for you!

Seriously? ibdeditorials.com and wnd.com? You really are a bigger idiot than I gave you credit for. They are two very extreme right wing sites that are well known for false and misleading information. Still carrying water I see. Get a clue. Think for yourself.

Listened to Obama claim that the fight against his health care plan is really an attempt to defeat him and hand him his Waterloo. What a f*&(ing ego!

Asked on Monday whether President Barack Obama's plan for health care reform represented socialism, RNC Chairman Michael Steele didn't waste words.

"Yes," he declared, "next question."

In a speech that even he admitted was meant to be more about politics than policy, Steele issued a whole host of similar accusations, with the type of rhetorical flourishes for which he is well known. At the end of the address he was asked by the Huffington Post whether he agreed with Sen. Jim DeMint's (R-S.C.) assessment that health care reform could be Obama's Waterloo -- a chance for the Republican Party to break the president politically. "I think that's a good way to put it," he responded.
