Health Care Reform

computer monitor waving a enevlope

What I find the most disturbing is the fact this email in different versions has been forwarded via viral email around the internet since 2009. These notorious (one example is shown below) viral email analysis of the House health care bill contains 48 claims. Twenty-six of them are false and the rest mostly misleading. Only four are true. Most of the e-mail’s claims are wrong, and you can read this extended analysis to find out why.
Below is a copy of the viral email I received.
Begin forwarded message:
This is very disturbing and once again…if our legislators had to live by the same rules as the rest of us, things would be quite different.  How can we change this?
I recall you saying you’d read the Health Care Reform bill, or most of it. Does the information below look accurate?
I can’t believe the one about the government having access to our bank accounts…………This was forwarded by Mike’s cousin, Delle, who’s a very savvy guy…..former CIA, Merrill Lynch, etc…..lives near Phoenix.
PLEASE PASS THIS OUTRAGE TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE!!
>>> This should be read by everyone, especially important to those over 75……. If you are younger, then it applies to your parents.
>>> Your hospital Medicare admittance has just changed under Obama Care.
>>> You must be admitted by your Primary Care Physician in order for Medicare to pay for it!
>>> If you are admitted by an emergency room doctor it is treated as outpatient care where hospital costs are not covered.
This is only the tip of the iceberg for Obama Care. Just wait to see what happens in 2013 -2014!
Age 76 today, I went to the Dr. for my monthly B12 shot that I have been getting for a number of years. The nurse came and got me, got out the needle filled and ready to go then looked at the computer and got very quiet and asked if I was prepared to pay for it. I said no that my insurance takes care of it. She said that Medicare had turned it down and went to talk to my Dr. about it. 15 minutes later she came back and said, she was sorry but they had tried every-thing they could but Medicare is beginning to turn many things away for seniors because of the projected Obama Care coming in. She was brushing at tears and said, “Someday they too will get old”, I am so very sorry!!
Be informed please. . . . . . .!!
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS…
>>> Page 272: At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment.
What Nancy Pelosi didn’t want us to know until after the healthcare bill was passed.
Remember she said, “We have to pass the Bill so that we can see what’s in it.”
JUDGE KITHIL of Marble Falls, TX is the 2nd OFFICIAL who has highlighted the most egregious pages of the HEALTH CARE BILL – HB3200.
Please read this……. especially note the reference to:
>>> Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
>>> Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
>>> Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN).
>>> Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind comes up with that?)
>>> Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all Doctors’ fees.
>>> Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient’s age.
>>> Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
>>> Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counseling)
>>> Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
HAD ENOUGH????
Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:
“Finally, it is specifically stated that this Bill will not apply to members of Congress. All of the above should give you the ammo you need to oppose Obamacare.

True or False with question mark

Is this information Correct or just E-Rumor???
Please don’t blindly pass on this information thinking it is true because it is FALSE.
