GOP Doctor Calls For Sebelius to Testify on Obamacare Discrepancies & “Reeducation” Plans

Andi 2010/09/23 17:10:39

The Obama-Pelosi Regime took control of one-sixth
of the nation’s economy when they passed their nationalized health care
bill and signed it into law in late March. The bill was never popular
but democrats persisted and rammed the bill through Congress. Now, there
are even reports that the Obama Administration sat on damning information and hid it from the public until after their bill was passed into law.


* * * * *


Results from a report
released a month after the health care vote were troubling. The report
released by Medicare and Medicaid actuaries showed that medical costs
will skyrocket rising $389 billion 10 years. 14 million will lose their
employer-based coverage. Millions of Americans will be left without
insurance. And, millions more may be dumped into the already overwhelmed
Medicaid system. 4 million American families will be hit with tax
penalties under this new law.


Of course, these were ALL things that President Obama and Democratic leaders assured us would not happen.


Via Special Report:




Six months after democrats voted to take over the nation’s health
care industry and force Americans to purchase their government plan the
administration has already missed several deadlines. Here are a few stats on this awful bill:


–4,103 – Pages of regulations issued on the health care law through Sept. 17, 2010

–12 – Number of final regulations not subjected to public scrutiny before taking effect

–5 – Missed implementation deadlines to date.


Rep. Michael Burgess M.D. (R-TX), the ranking member of the House
Subcommittee on Oversight and Regulations called for Secretary Sebelius
to come before the committee and explain some of her troubling comments and the flawed bill.


Burgess, Barton Call For Secretary Sebelius To Update Committee On Health Care Implementation

Lewisville, TX


“It has now been six months since the passage of the PPACA,
and this Committee has yet to hear from Secretary Sebelius on her
efforts to administer the law. Secretary Sebelius is the head of
the department now responsible for overseeing a dramatic change to
one-fifth of the American economy, and Members of Congress should have
the opportunity to discuss the PPACA with her
,” the lawmakers wrote.


The letter emphasized the committee and subcommittee’s
important oversight responsibilities, noting that, “In the months
leading up to the passage of the PPACA, the Subcommittee on Health and
the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a number of
hearings in order to build support for the passage of a new health care
law. Since its passage, however, these committees have not held one hearing specifically on the PPACA.
As the Ranking Members of the Full Committee and the Subcommittee on
Oversight and Investigations, we believe this is unacceptable.”


The lawmakers first made the request to Waxman for Secretary Sebelius to testify before the committee in a letter dated July 30, 2010, but have received no response.


“Since we sent that letter, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
said during an interview with ABC News Radio on August 30, 2010,
‘[T]here is still a great deal of confusion about what is in [the health
care law] and what isn’t.’ The Secretary concluded that the administration had ‘a lot of reeducation to do.’”


“Inviting Secretary Sebelius to testify before this
Committee, so that we may understand her ‘reeducation’ of the American
public, would be a good start to a public conversation about the new
health care law,” Burgess and Barton continued.

—Congressman Michael Burgess, R-Texas, ranking member of the
Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, and Congressman Joe Barton,
R-Texas, ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee,
today wrote to Committee Chairman Henry Waxman requesting that the
Secretary of Health and Human Services testify before the committee on
implementation of the health care law.


Let’s hope we see much more of this when the GOP takes back the House from these radicals in 2011.

    Anyone who had at least 2 more brain cells that the average Democrat knew that we were all going to be paying out the ass for Obamacare. In spite of every warning and every red flag, the corrupt Democrat controlled Congress forced this on the American people.

    Only a fool would think that the government can take over an industry and reduce costs.This will go down in history as one of the greatest frauds foisted on the American people.

    Nice try but even if she were to testify she would do nothing but lie, Just like the Big Lie Obama care was from the beginning. My health insurance (Whic I work for and earn) has gone up to cover peoplesa children up to 26, leakerws who dodnt work and for inclusion of plans I would never use myself, like abortion) ALL to pay for the lie of Obama Care. If you want to provide health insurance provide jobs and let people willing to work purchase health care that meets there needs. Dont jack up the cost of peoples health care for plans they will never use all in the fell good lie of socialised medicine.

    I have said this once before in a different thread, this "healthcare" will most likely be of the same quality as the veterans health care system, which is to say, awful. Noone in their right mind would want it if they knew what it was. They HAD to force it on us because it will suck so badly and cost so much that noone in their right mind would want it. I guess my question is why are they so insistent in forcing it on us? what is the ultimate goal?

    Good luck Fellas on gettin' any of those Weasels to come out of their Burrows to testify about anything. Maybe Obama hasn't told you people yet about his new "Congress," they're called Czars. You guys are just there for show, you know, so Obama's complete take over of Government is kept from us until he's really ready to put the Hammer down. All you guys in Congress and the Senate with an "R" after your name, except for a select few Obama Butt lickers, will probably end up in a Gulag somewhere.

Oh, I get it, it's your effort to get more people to read the comments of the rest of the people, instead of reading what the question is and making up our own minds. Kind of like the Demoncrats when they forced this bill down our throats...hoping nobody would read it, leaving them in charge of 1/5 th of our economy!

    Checked with Snopes... TRUE !
    Another Obama Nightmare

    Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?
    That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home etc.
    When did this happen? It's in the healthcare bill. Just thought you should know.

    SALES TAX TO GO INTO EFFECT 2013 (Part of HC Bill)
    REAL ESTATE SALES TAX
    So, this is "change you can believe in"?

    Under the new health care bill - did you know that all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax? The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013 (presumably after obama's re-election). You can thank Nancy, Harry and Barack and your local Democrat Congressman for this one. If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Is this Hope & Change great or what? Does this stuff make your November and 2012 votes more important?

    Oh, you weren't aware this was in the obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either (result of clandestine midnight voting for huge bills they've never read). AND, there are a few other surprises lurking.

    Why am I sending you this? The same reason I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book.
    People have the right to know the truth because an election is coming in November!

    I couldn't find this on Snopes, but I did find it on factcheck.org, which I think is a much better source than Snopes. The tax applies to incomes/homes over $250k for singles and $500k for couples. Here's the link, followed by part of the info.

    http://www.factcheck.org/2010...

    "We’ve been flooded with queries about this one ever since the health care bill became law. At the last minute, Democratic lawmakers decided on a new 3.8 percent tax on the net investment income of high-income persons. But the claim that this would amount to a $15,200 tax on the sale of a typical $400,000 home is utterly false.
    The truth is that only a tiny percentage of home sellers will pay the tax. First of all, only those with incomes over $200,000 a year ($250,000 for married couples filing jointly) will be subject to it. And even for those who have such high incomes, the tax still won’t apply to the first $250,000 on profits from the sale of a personal residence — or to the first $500,000 in the case of a married couple selling their home."

    "We can understand how this misconception got started. The law itself is couched in highly technical language that only a qualified tax expert can fully grasp. (This provision begins on page 33 of the reconciliation bill that was passed and signed into law.) And it does say the tax falls on "net gain … attributable to the disposition of property." That would include the sale of a home"
    So now off on the trail......Annenberg Foundation Fact Check, I'm sure they would never attempt to color their responses (they funded Bill Ayers, Domestic Terrorist). INCLUDE THE SALE OF A HOME so what other items are included? sales of stock, business property? Business property - hmm would this mean the new owner might pass that tax onto whom ever used their service or product?

    Didn't know that about Fact Check. I'll have to do more research on them. Does ANYONE report facts instead of slanted information?
    I crossed snopes off my list when I saw that they unequivocally stated that there was absolutely no link between Obama and Kagen. Looking on the Supreme Court docket showed that she represented him on all of the 'birther' suites and was able to get them thrown out. If that isn't a clear link showing that he 'owed' her, I don't know what is. When I provided Snopes with the docket links, I got a very snippy answer back. I was rather taken aback as, if I were them, I would have wanted the input so I could update the information.

    We ALL know that by destroying the best health care in the world would lead to this.
    Yes, there are problems, but the Democrats REFUSED to try to fix the major cost to our insurance premiums. That is the outrageous law suits that make it impossible for the Doctors to concentrate solely on our health.
    They also REFUSED to let us buy across state lines. That in itself would lower the costs by have more competition between the providers.
    EVERYTHING about Obamacare was and is a lie.

    Most of America knew this would be a disaster. But Democrats passed it anyway. They didn't care what the peple wanted. They pushed through Obamacare did nothing for jobs and showed us we had no voice in a Democrat government. They hid basic structure for a number of horrors in the Tome of the healthcare package. That they plan to later institute in our lives. They say they know what is best for us. No jobs, huge healthcare cost, and destroying the most successful way of life known to man. Deciding how we can think, what we can eat, what we can know, they want to control every aspect of our life. Our future under Democrats is a Socialist slave society. Fight back with your vote in November while we still can.

    Even if the Republicans cause a split in the house, it is unlikely that Obamacare will be repealed. The best hat they can hope for is to deny it the funds needed to be fully implemented. Still,,,,That's better than nothing.
