Obamacare 21 New and Increased Taxes | Afforable Care Act 21 New Taxes
While campaigning President Obama promised over and over again that people making under $250k a year would not be subject to any tax increases if he was elected. Obamacare is the largest tax increase in the history of the United States. The tax hikes don't go into effect until January 2013 and they keep increasing until 2016.
Obama is hoping to be re-elected before the tax hikes kick in.
Your Medical Privacy–Another Obamacare Casualty
Patients are horrified at the idea that such personal health information could be released to a government database, open to anyone with access to the system. But your privacy is another casualty of the damage caused by Obamacare’s new rules and regulations governing health professionals.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently released new federal regulation that requires private health insurance companies to give health records of every person they insure to the government.
Although government jargon in the HHS rules distracts from their real goal, the end result is clear: government bureaucrats would have access to the health records from all private insurance companies—including yours—whether you want them to or not.
Under the new rules, the Federal government will own and control your medical records, without your permission. The government will be your new “overlord” controlling your medical information on federal computers in a federal database. You will no longer be able to control who sees your medical information.
The most personal aspects of your life are slated to be sent to Washington by your private insurance carrier for all your medical visits. This provides individual medical data for the federally run Comparative Effectiveness Research coordinating panel of experts. This panel of government-appointed experts, copying the rationing approach in Britain, will decide what treatment is allowed for individuals, based on government criteria such as:
- cost of treatment
- effectiveness as determined by government experts
- your “quality life years” remaining
Beyond privacy issues, there is major concern about safety of your medical information when hackers can penetrate even highly secure federal agency computers such as the Pentagon, VA, and Department of Defense. Hackers stole millions of medical records from the Veterans Administration, and patients were at risk for identity theft.
David Blumenthal, M.D., the President’s former “health information czar,” admitted that “no infrastructure exists in most areas of the country for secure health information exchange among providers and between providers and consumers.”
Medical privacy? The Obama administration’s health czars seem more concerned about power and control over your medical care than protection of your private medical information.
In summary, the Obamacare “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” of 2010 and the “Stimulus Bill” of 2009 gave the federal government total control of very personal aspects of your life:
- money that is currently in the private healthcare sector
- your private personal and family health information
- your access to timely medical care
- the types of treatment you will be allowed to have, based on your age and value to society
