Obamacare Places Controls on Women?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/03/19 14:32:10
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned this week that "extremists" want to
control women, even in the U.S.

"They even want to control the decisions
we make about our own health and bodies."

Sounds like the president's health law. Under the new law, women will lose
choices and privacy they fought for decades to protect.

What
your insurance covers:
The Obama health law says that you must enroll
in a “qualified” health plan or pay a penalty beginning in 2014. The secretary
of Health and Human Services (HHS) — a presidential appointee — makes the
important decisions about what your plan covers.

The law doesn't
guarantee that contraceptives or morning-after pills are covered. It's up to the
president. That means any future president could decide not to cover them. (Sec.
1302)

The wide variety of views expressed by the current presidential
candidates should alert women not to surrender their insurance choices to the
discretion of one person. By compelling you to enroll in a one-size-fits-all
plan, that's what the Obama health law does.

Who makes health
decisions:
Currently, the federal government does not interfere in how
doctors treat privately insured patients. Under the Obama health law, the
government will standardize medical care, affecting you even if you are in a
private health plan you paid for yourself.

Sec. 1311 (h) (1) says
private insurers can pay only doctors and hospitals that follow whatever federal
regulations the secretary imposes

    Actually you'll have zero privacy when this becomes official. Another thing, I don't like government being privy to my medical data. There's so much BAD in this. It's not health care, it's a death care control. It's tyranny.

    Older women: It's almost always women who take responsibility for their aging parents and in-laws. And of course older women outnumber men in Medicare. For all these reasons, Medicare is a woman's issue. This week older women are being targeted with mailings reminding them that the Obama health law lowers prescription drug costs.

    Closing the “donut hole” gap in prescription drug coverage is throwing seniors a crumb. It's a miniscule gain compared with the $575 billion cut in future Medicare funding over the next decade.

    Most of the cuts reduce what hospitals and other institutions are paid to care for the elderly. Richard Foster, Chief Actuary of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), told Congress that the cuts will force 15 percent of hospitals into the red, and compel others to operate in an environment of scarcity. That could mean fewer nurses on the floor and longer waits for high-tech diagnostic tests.

    For decades, women’s rights groups went to the barricades to prevent government from accessing their medical records or controlling their doctors' decisions. The Obama health law does both. Women need to put partisanship aside and honestly recognize the dangers in this law.
