Is BidenCare ObamaCare?
Joe Biden promised that he would bring back the "Affordable Care Act" - aka ObamaCare. So, in order to do our due-diligence let's refresh our memories of what was in ObamaCare as proposed by Barack Obama.
Here's what I wrote on the subject when Obama was President:
What's In The Healthcare Bill?
Our Founders wrote: "All political power is inherent in the people; all government originates with the people; it's founded upon their will only, and it's instituted for the good of the people as a whole."
Many of my listeners are very concerned about what is proposed in the ObamaCare plan for 'end-of-life-counseling. Worry over a government takeover of healthcare that will not only allow Washington bureaucrats to use "comparative effectiveness research" to dictate to doctors what treatments they can prescribe for patients, and the institution of a National Healthcare ID, as well as what Obama's special health policy advisor, Ezekiel Emanuel, said in the Hastings Center Report, that health services should not be guaranteed to "individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens," that "an obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia."
I mean double Wow.
Not only a government take-over of healthcare, like the take-over of the banks and auto industry, but total control of health...including who gets what kind of care...or no care at all.
