Greg Abbott: Texas challenging health care bill
Austin Business Journal
Just after federal legislators narrowly passed health care reform legislation, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott vowed the Lone Star State and others will challenge its constitutionality.

“The federal health care legislation passed tonight violates the United States Constitution and unconstitutionally infringes upon Texans’ individual liberties,” he said after the 219-212 vote Sunday evening.

“To protect all Texans’ constitutional rights, preserve the constitutional framework intended by our nation’s founders, and defend our state from further infringement by the federal government, the State of Texas and other states will legally challenge the federal health care legislation.”

All Republicans and 34 Democrats voted against the bill. Texas legislators that voted for the package include: Texas Democratic Reps. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo; Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin; Charlie Gonzalez, D-San Antonio; Al Green, D-Houston; Gene Green, D-Houston; Rubén Hinojosa, D-Mercedes; Sheila Jackson-Lee, D-Houston; Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Dallas; Solomon P. Ortiz, D-Corpus Christi; Silvestre Reyes, D-El Paso; and Ciro D. Rodriguez, D-San Antonio.

Please read this…….. especially the reference to pages 58 & 59

JUDGE KITHIL wrote:

“I have reviewed selected sections of the bill, and find
it unbelievable that our Congress, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, could come up with a bill loaded with so many wrong-headed elements.”

“Both Republicans and Democrats are equally responsible
for the financial mess of both Social Security and Medicare programs.”

“I am opposed to HB 3200 for a number of reasons.

To start with, it is estimated that a federal bureaucracy of more than 150,000 new employees will be required to administer HB3200. That is an unacceptable expansion of a government that is already too intrusive in our lives. If we are going to hire 150,000 new employees, let’s put them to
work protecting our borders, fighting the massive drug problem and putting more law enforcement/firefighters out there.”

JUDGE KITHIL continued: “Other problems I have with
this bill include:

** Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance
to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

** Page 58 and 59: The government will have
real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by
the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN).

** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this
section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)

** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same
regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors’ fees.

** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration
care according to the patient’s age.

** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a
prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.

** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates
advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counceling.)

** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify
which doctors can write an end-of-life order.

HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on:

“Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not
apply to members of Congress. Members of Congress are already exempt from the Social Security system, and have a well-funded private plan that covers their retirement needs. If they were on our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick ‘fix’ to make the plan financially sound for their future.”

All of the above should give you the point blank
ammo you need to support your opposition to Obamacare.
