20 Ways ObamaCare Will Take Away Your Freedoms

20 Ways ObamaCare Will Take Away Our Freedoms 
By David Hogberg    

With House Democrats poised to pass the Senate health care bill with some reconciliation changes later today, it is worthwhile to take a comprehensive look at the freedoms we will lose.

Of course, the overhaul is supposed to provide us with security. But it will result in skyrocketing insurance costs and physicians leaving the field in droves, making it harder to afford and find medical care. We may be about to live Benjamin Franklin’s adage, “People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."  - Thomas Jefferson

I think this link to Consumer Reports Health Blog makes clear a lot of misconceptions,...and Consumer Reports is very fair and balanced and have been a reputable source for truthful reviews of all types of products, both the pros and the cons.  And since they do not accept advertisements, they are fairly unbiased. It's worth a read.

Here is an interesting article about today's healthcare reform law from the AMA,..the American Medical Association, the professional physician organization to which most of your doctors belong.  Kind of interesting to hear their point of view on an issue that they deal with on a daily basis,...more so than most of us.

Good article.  The article aptly points out that it is health care INSURANCE REFORM,...not heathcare reform.  Great point.  I believe healthcare insurance needed reforming.  The CEO from UCLA also made a good point that a majority of our healthcare could be reformed by us, individually, getting up off the couch and becoming active, stop smoking, stop over eating, stop over drinking.  No politician is in charge of that,.....JUST US.

Yep, no amount of preventative coverage will solve that. It has to be personal discipline. Plus, we ARE all gonna die anyway.
So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear. That there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system. - Milton Friedman

The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem. - Milton Friedman
