It’s unbelievable the gall this administration has and the commitment to bring in socialism. I never would have believed this sort of reality could actually come to pass. And now I see that it is a real possibility. What we see goes a long with a movie I saw back in the 1980’s and our scenario today. You want proof that his can happen, fine! Watch the video with Glenn Beck and guests and hear what they have to say about what government can do.

I just got to this email so you may have already seen it. If you haven’t seen it, you need to see it now. If you have seen it, it wouldn’t hurt to read it again because this information is important. Please pass this information along to those who are for the health care plan.
The President is determined to get this plan passed and that concerns me. I can see Congress passing it because of the pressure that can be applied. I can also see the people accepting it as a good thing because they don’t care about the areas that concern others because they need a health care plan.
I think most of us are aware that health care needs reforming, so that is not what the opponets are against. Let’s put together a plan that makes sense and not one so racked with problem areas as the ones listed below.
This is a letter written by Dr. Stephen Fraser to Senator Bayh. If you would like to send it on to your Congressman, he says to feel free to copy it and send it around to our friends and to senators and representatives.

As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the healthcare bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the government’s proposed involvement in the patient physician relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a healthcare system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our healthcare system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through congress will be a disaster if passed.
I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow citizens.

Page 150 Lines 9-13: Business’s with payroll btw 251k & 401k who doesn’t provide public option pays 2-6% tax on all payroll. (I guess the small business person in network marketing or something similar will have an issue with this rule…..including doctors.)

Page 170 Lines 1-3 HC Bill: Any NONRESIDENT Alien is exempt from individual taxes. (Americans will pay)
Page 195 HC Bill: Officers & employees of HC Admin (GOVT) will have access to ALL Americans finances /personal records. (Oh yea, this is a good idea! Who wants government’s nose in our businesses and personal affairs? )
Page 203 Line 14-15 HC: “The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax” Yes, it says that!
Page 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill: Govt will reduce physician services for Medicaid Seniors, low income and poor are affected. (Quality health care? Right, and by whose standards?)
Page 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors, doesn’t matter what specialty you have, you’ll all be paid the same!

Page 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3: Govt provides approved list of end of life resources, guiding you in death. (assisted suicide) (Again, they say this is a myth being promoted by those in opposition. Whose the liar?)
Page 427 Lines 15-24: Govt mandates program for orders for end of life. The Govt has a say in how your life ends.
Page 429 Lines 1-9: An “advanced care planning consultant” will be used frequently as patients health deteriorates. (Not a bad idea but what would this entail? I am suspicious because of the other provisions for end of life care.)
Page 429 Lines 10-12: “advanced care consultation” may include an ORDER for end of life plans. AN ORDER from GOVT!
Page 429 Lines 13-25: The govt will specify which Doctors can write an end of life order.
Page 430 Lines 11-15: The Govt will decide what level of treatment you will have at end of life!

Page 489 Sec 1308: The Govt will cover Marriage & Family therapy. Which means they will insert Govt into your marriage. (This is unbelievable. People, we can’t let them do this! We can’t let government intervene into our lives as much as this plan calls for. Are we that naive to accept this plan? Please read my story at the end of this report.)
Page 494-498: Govt will cover Mental Health Services including defining, creating, rationing those services. (I really object to this one because I worked at mental health and saw how important this service is to people. I see people leave as a totally different persona than when they first walked in. )
Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.
Furthermore, If you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on the country and destroys the doctor/patient relationship, I will do everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next election.

Let me tell you what I know about the idea of government solving all our problems by telling you about a movie I saw back in the 1980’s. I can’t remember the name of the movie but I have a vivid memory of the story line.
The movie started out with a revolution, where the youth were trying to win back the freedom their parents lost by asking government to take care of them. Slowly but surely, government convinced society that they needed government more and more until they had no more freedoms left. That is when government seized the old people and put them in a barbed-wired compound in the middle of town. These elderly people in the community were being killed off when they reached a specific age because they were a burden to society. The FREEDOM FIGHTERS were the youth whose parents were in the compound.
NOW TELL ME THE TRUTH, DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT WE ARE FAR FROM THE SITUATION IN THE MOVIE? IS THIS REALLY THE NEW DIRECTION THAT WE WANT FOR AMERICA?
After you watch the video with Glenn Beck, keep in mind that the website he mentions is the same site you have to go to to trade in your clunker cars. Also, keep in mind that the old cars have no GPS (tracking system) so if Obama wants GPSs on the doors of every American to supposedly help census takers, then why is it so far fetched to think he wants to get rid of all vehicles that he can’t track.
Right now, government can track us through our new cell phones, our new vehicles, and soon our residence. Now that is darn right scary. It sounds like Russian KGB to me or Hitler’s Gestapo. What do you think?
