- Back in March, I wrote a column titled, 'Will you let
the federal government take possession of your medical records?' (1) In
that column, I said this:
- "This one I call the gang rape bill is officially
titled, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009. (2) Of
course, it is no such animal. But, like Roosevelt's NIRA, Obamaination's
ARRTA will give birth to even more useless and costly government agencies.
- "Sec. 3001. Office of the National Coordinator for
Health Information Technology sets up another useless bureaucracy. The
goal is to have everyone's medical records entered into a massive, electronic
government data base. Now, I don't know about you, but I have a real problem
with this because I know the real goal is to track medical care and treatment
under a totalitarian government. This would mean an already incompetent
government is allegedly going to manage some 300 MILLION medical records
using technology that CAN be hacked, never mind some nosey busy body snooping
into your medical records or "sharing" with some agency or foreign
government down the road under world government.
- "On March 6, 2009, I sent a certified letter to
my primary care physician (which I'm required to have under our broken
medical system that Congress destroyed), various specialists (neurosurgeons)
and TriCare, our insurance company. I simply told all of them very politely
about this new "law" signed by Obama and that the purpose of
my correspondence is to notify each of them I do not, under any circumstances,
give my permission or consent to have my medical records submitted to the
federal government under any agency to put be put into their electronic
data base. If it is declared mandatory that physicians and insurance companies
hand over my medical records to some government agency, I will sue the
federal government to stop such an action."
- In my last column, Health Care Reform: Congress Has
no Authority to Legislate, (3) I linked a letter by Dr. Dave Janda, MD.
- Today, I received an email that shocked me. The
shadow government will use any means necessary to Sovietize these united
States of America and what better way than to slip draconian laws into
bills well over 1,400 pages?
- I studied the links and bill sections Dr. Janda provided;
it is beyond outrageous. No wonder there was the original thousand plus
pages in the "stimulus" package. Then another 318 pages withheld
until the last minute. If I recall, that amendment was voted on at 3:00am
in the morning. Then the "final" amendments.
- Should we be surprised that someone began altering Dr.
Janda's letter on the Internet? Shame on those who call themselves Americans
and engage in such deceit. They are swimming in a gutter of rotten garbage.
- There will have to be lawsuits to get hundreds of the
provisions of these bills thrown out of Part One and if Part Two passes
because the Politburo (Congress) has no authority to legislate medical
practice or treatment within the states of the Union. That is precisely
the language contained in the stimulus bill and the Obama Care bill.
- For further reference, here is the full Stimulus Bill
text and you can compare the sections cited by Dr. Janda as I have done:
- Here's the link to the "stimulus bill""
- Here is a news item on health care in the bill:
- U.S. to Compare Medical Treatments
- February 15, 2009
- WASHINGTON - "The $787 billion economic stimulus
bill approved by Congress will, for the first time, provide substantial
amounts of money for the federal government to compare the effectiveness
of different treatments for the same illness.
- "Under the legislation, researchers will receive
$1.1 billion to compare drugs, medical devices, surgery and other ways
of treating specific conditions. The bill creates a council of up to 15
federal employees to coordinate the research and to advise President Obama
and Congress on how to spend the money.
- "In addition, Republican lawmakers and conservative
commentators complained that the legislation would allow the federal government
to intrude in a person's health care by enforcing clinical guidelines and
- This is the question everyone should also be asking at
all town hall meetings and phone calls to their Congressional representative:
- Why were we not told Part One of ObamaCare was passed
in the Stimulus package in February?
- Without question, the regulation and treatment for health
care is in that phony "stimulus" bill that was passed.
- Email I received today:
- "(Name deleted for privacy), I was concerned about
forwarding the article, written by Dr. Dave Janda, that is circulating
on the Internet, so I tracked him down by phone in Ypsilante, Michigan.
I left a message for him, which, to my great surprise, he returned within
the hour. He confirmed the letter circulating around the Internet is his,
but he said it has been altered in some ways on blogs, mostly parts removed.
He kindly sent me the original letter as well as the text of his congressional

floored me by telling me that the Obama Care plan is in two parts. Part
II is what is being considered now in Congress; Part I has already passed
and is law -- are you sitting down? -- buried inside the stimulus bill.
Please forward the letter and congressional testimony to your contact list.
He has given me his permission to distribute this.

pushed through the stimulus bill so fast without giving anyone time to

- P.S. "In Dr. Janda's email below, he refers to my
being "upset." He is referring to my utter shock that part one
of the Obamacare plan is already signed into law, creating the federal
agencies that will administer it. Even more shocking is that Rahm Emmanual's
brother, a physician, is on one of the boards created. Rahm Emmanual, for
those who don't know, is President Obama's chief of staff."

- Mr. .....,
- " I received your phone message. My note about The
Obama Health Care Plan has generated significant interest around the country.
Several versions of the article have appeared on the Internet..... the
complete version of the article is attached. If you were upset.....it was
not my intention to upset you....it was my intention to help educate and
inform you . What is of concern....the councils I refer to in my article
have already been created and passed into law.....the Obama Health Care
Plan is comprised of two parts. The second part is currently before Congress.
The first part was buried in The Stimulus Bill that President Obama signed
into law in February. The creation of the Federal agencies were in the
- "The hardest part of my job is to tell a patient
they have cancer.....it is much easier to ignore the x-rays, the lab tests
and put on a happy face and say, "Everything is fine." End result....that
patient ends up in a box and never had a chance. The hard part is to analyze
the tests and data and lay it on the line and tell the truth so that patient
has the best opportunity to survive. I stand by my assessment and the similar
assessment made by many others that are active in the field of health care.
- "The response to bad news such as a new cancer diagnosis
is multifaceted.....but it basically becomes manifested as either anger
and hostility or acceptance and resolve. I provided data to you that reveals
President Obama's Health Care Plan has Cancer and it will metastasize to
you and your family. The response from the vast majority has been of resolve
to make a better plan and approach. To those of you who became angry....
the diagnosis was and is accurate....the data does not lie. Just do me
a favor.....don't say "Everything is fine".....I want to PREVENT
you from wearing that box. Other references are the following:

- Dr. Janda's original letter:
- THE OBAMA HEALTH CARE PLAN IN ONE WORD
- By David H. Janda M.D.
- "As a physician who has authored books on Preventative
Health Care and Health Care Cost Containment, I was recently given the
opportunity to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The
Capitol Building in Washington D.C... The presentation, entitled Health
Care Reform; The Power & Profit of Prevention was well received.
- "In preparation for the presentation, I read the
latest version of "reform" as authored by The Obama Administration
and supported by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reed. It is important to realize
that The Obama Health Care Plan is comprised of two parts..that's right,
not one but two parts.
- "The first part of The Obama Health Care Plan was
buried in The Stimulus Bill which was signed into law by the President
in February (see http://www.readthestimulus.org/ ). It is the second part
of The Health Care Plan which is now being debated in Congress.
- "Below is the link to the over 1000 page document.....
- "Let me summarize just a few salient points of the
two part Obama Health Care Plan. Warning.......They need to put the same
warning on The Obama Health Care Plan as they do a pack of cigarettes.....Consuming
this product WILL be hazardous to your health.
- "The underlying method of cutting costs throughout
the plan is based on rationing and denying care, NOT PREVENTING health
care need. The plan's method is the most inhumane and unethical approach
in cutting costs. The rationing of care is implemented through a Council,
equivalent to the National Health Care Board in the British Health Care
System. The name given to this panel is The Federal Coordinating Council
For Comparative Effectiveness Research ("Federal Council").
(Section 9201 H.R. 1 Version of the Stimulus Bill.)
- "President Obama has already appointed the fifteen
member Federal Council. According to the Stimulus Bill, p. 152, all members
of the Council must be "senior federal officers or employees."
Thus, medical treatment will be dispensed by a group of bureaucrats from
their ivory towers, not by the hands-on practitioners in the presence of
the patients. The council was funded with $1.1 BILLION from The Stimulus
Bill. (http://www.hhs.gov/recovery/programs/os/cerbios.html )
- "Comparative Effectiveness Research" is based
on the formula of the approval or rejection of treatment for patients based
upon the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient
will benefit from the treatment.
- "According to former New York Lieutenant Governor
and Health Policy Analyst Dr. Betsy McCaughey, the Federal Council will
set a cost effectiveness standard for treatment. (Stimulus Bill p. 464)
Translation.....if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as
having an advanced form of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer, dream
on if you think you will get treated.....pick out your box. Oh, you say...this
could never happen. Sorry....this is the same model they use in Britain.
- "The plan also empowers the Federal Council to create
another level of bureaucracy, The Center for Comparative Effectiveness
Research. (Health Care Bill, Section 1181, p. 502). The effect of this
extra level of bureaucracy is to slow the development of new medications
and technologies in order to reduce costs. How special is that!
- "The plan also outlines that doctors and hospitals
will be overseen and reviewed by The National Coordinator of Health Information
Technology. This "Coordinator" will be responsible for monitoring
treatments to make sure doctors and hospitals are strictly following what
the government deems appropriate and cost effective, and to "guide
medical decisions at the time and place of care." (Stimulus Bill,
p. 116; see also pp. 442, 446).
- "The Stimulus Bill goes on to say that hospitals
and doctors that are NOT "meaningful users" of the new systems
will face penalties. The Secretary of Health and Human Services will
be empowered to impose "more stringent measures of meaningful use
over time." (Stimulus Bill pp. 366, 478, 511, 518, 540, 541.) According
to those in Congress, penalties could include large six figure financial
fines and possible imprisonment. According to the Obama Plan, if your doctor
saves your life but breaks government protocol, you might have to go to
the prison to see your doctor for follow -up appointments. I believe this
is the same model Stalin used in the former Soviet Union.
- "In Section 102 of the Health Care Plan has the
Orwellian title: "Protecting the Choice to Keep Current Coverage."
What this section really mandates is that it is ILLEGAL for you to keep
your private insurance if your status changes, e.g., if you lose or change
your job, become a senior citizen, graduate from college and land their
first job. Yes, illegal. When President Obama was asked about this portion
of his plan recently, his response was, "I am not familiar with that
part of the plan."
- "Obama hosted a conference call with bloggers urging
them to pressure Congress to pass his health plan as soon as possible.
- "During the call, a blogger from Maine said he kept
running into an Investors Business Daily article that claimed Section 102
of the House health legislation would outlaw private insurance. He asked:
"Is this true? Will people be able to keep their insurance and will
insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?"
President Obama replied: "You know, I have to say that I am not familiar
with the provision you are talking about."
- "Then there is Section 1233 of the Health Care Bill,
devoted to "Advanced Care Planning." After each American turns
65 years of age they have to go to a mandated counseling program that is
designed to end life sooner. This session is to occur every 5 years unless
the person has developed a chronic illness then it must be done every year.
The topics in this government run session will include how to decline hydration,
nutrition and how to initiate hospice care. It is no wonder the Obama Administration
does NOT like my emphasis on Prevention. Under the Health Care Plan for
cost containment, Prevention is the "enemy," since people would
- "I rest my case....The Health Care Plan authored
by Obama / Pelosi / Reed is hazardous to the health of every American.
- "In the question/answer session following my Capitol
Hill presentation, a Congressman asked: "I am doing a number of network
interviews next week on the Obama Health Care Plan. If I am asked what
is the one word to describe the plan, what should I answer?"
- "The answer is simple, honest, direct, analytical,
and sad, but truthful. The word is FASCIST.
