Health Care Bill Will Fund State Vaccine Teams to Conduct ‘Interventions’ in Private Homes
Thursday, July 16, 2009
By Terence P. Jeffrey, Editor-in-Chief


(CNSNews.com) - There is a knock at the front door. Peeking through the window, a mother sees a man and a woman, both in uniform. They are agents of health-care reform.


“Excuse me, ma’am,” says the man. “Our records show that your eleven-year-old daughter has not been immunized for genital warts.”

I think you should maybe set aside your irritation with the people that choose not to have coverage and think more about those that want it but can not afford it.

"I think you should maybe set aside your irritation with the people that choose not to have coverage and think more about those that want it but can not afford it."

I think you should set aside your idea that we have only two options, the way things are now, and Obama's plan. Those are not the only options but to hear everyone talk, you would think it is the one and only option.

I've spent a few days reading the public's views on this matter and I'm really sick of everyone who's for government health care acting like the ones who oppose it want all the poor people to go without coverage. The democrats take the very stupid stance and over and over they'll say "but what about the millions of people who are uninsured?" and they ask it as if there's no other option but what the president is proposing...most of them have not even read the bill, or even parts of it. They just trust the president to find a way to afford his plan. WE CANNOT AFFORD IT. Not only that, there's not enough money in the world to make uneducated people suddenly educated and experienced enough to take jobs in the health care industry. There are not enough professionals to handle the load of patients that we will see when health-care suddenly becomes free for all. Insurance companies will not stay in business so everytime he says "you'll be able to keep your current policy" I just want to SCREAM!!!

No, I don't believe that people need to do without insurance or that insurance companies should be allowed to deny coverage. And I don't appreciate the insinuation these people are making each and every time the subject is brought up. It's rediculous for people to act as if there's no other option but to let people do without healthcare/coverage or to adopt the current plan. The plan he's proposed (I've read every word of it now) is about control, he don't give a damn about the uninsured! Talk about naive!

I just read my last post and I didn't mean to sound so harsh, didn't realize I did until I read it days later. I was inviting to a town hall meeting by phone. Of course I didn't get a chance to speak, I was still po'ed about it I guess. This whole health-care mess is really upsetting to me. I don't believe that anyone should go without healthcare but with the government in control, it will only be a matter of time before it becomes worse for more people. I just don't understand why we can't keep things the way the are except the government should take away pre-existing clauses and stop the denying of coverage. The states should take care of the poor and uninsured with a state insurance option. An option that does not include denying ANY surgery or ANY drugs. On Hannity's TV show last night they told a story of a women who died because the state of Oregon denied her the drugs to keep her alive longer. Now I don't believe in taking the drugs myself, but people who do should not be denied and told by the state that they have to sit back and wait to die.

I know my ideas are costly but if all insurance companies were non-profit and those over-paid executives weren't employed by the insurance companies then there's a really big savings right there. Plus ---- there's always government bailouts! And consider this: how many non-profit insurance companies were bailed-out by Obama?

I find a few things intriguing about the whole debate. Though France has universal healthcare, the worker pays 21% of their income for this healthcare alone.

Have you read anything about visits to a doctor who's not an MD? Was there anything about seeing an Herbalist or Natureopath or...I don't even remember reading about chiropractic visits. I may have been sleepy, read too fast, who knows, but I do not remember any of mentioned in Obama's health-care bill. I worry that the crazies are right and they will shut down all Natural-Health-Care stores and make vitamins a prescription...heck, I'm one of the crazies...

The below link is an overall view of the bill, but, you have to scroll down just a little bit to get to it.
