Baucus ObamaCare Bill Text Available

The Baucas ObamaCare bill, which should be known as America's Death of Healthcare Freedom Act of 2009. This bill has 250 pages and it's not even the real legislative language. The bill forces people, via multiple mandates and taxes and subsidies, to get people into Government-controlled health insurance:

Personal Responsibility Requirement. Beginning in 2013, all U.S. citizens and legal residents would be required to purchase coverage through (1) the individual market, a public program such as Medicare, Medicaid, the Children‘s Health Insurance Program, Veteran‘s Health Care Program, or TRICARE or through an employer (or as a dependent of a covered employee) in the small group market, meeting at least the requirements of a bronze plan, or (2) in the large group market, in a plan with first dollar coverage for prevention-related services as recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force – except in cases where value-based insurance design is used and cannot have a maximum out-of-pocket limit greater than that provided by the standards established for HSA current law limit.

Why more Government involvement in healthcare hurts your health and your freedom:

"Spending money leads to control over fees ... and it inevitably leads to socialized medicine." - Milton Friedman

UPDATE: My comment over here - in response to the Rep Grayson smear:

Face it. That’s all the Democrats and left-liberals have left. Hate. Fear. Lies.

4 million jobs lost and all the Democrats can do is piddle around with smears and lies about Republicans. Have they at long last no shame, no decency, no caring for the real issues of this nation?

They can’t stand up on their own agenda, because the MAJORITY of Americans OPPOSE the ObamaCare bills created by the Democrats in Congress.

It’s Obama who said that maybe Granny didnt need that hip replacement. Its Waxman’s HR3200 that put in the QALY provisions (aka ‘death panel’) govt board. Maybe its ‘die slowly’…

Democrats are liars, hypocrites and completely unfit to govern. If this their idea of governance, the Jackass party deserves to be retired for a generation and Rep Grayson needs to get fired pronto. America deserves better.

Conservative healthcare idea.
"If there are those good ideas, we shouldn’t be holding them back."

Who says we are holding anything back? You just have to get out of the lamestream liberal media Kultursmog and find them.

We have this bizarre alice-in-wonderland inside-the-beltway culture that denies the existence of ideas on the right, then uses that false premise to argue that the right lacks intellectual heft or answers to pressing problems. If anything, the left is holding it back by pretending alternatives dont exist.

It's arrogant nonsense ...
