New Details Coming Out About ObamaCare

July 18, 2009

  • Congress is going to try to overhaul America’s health-care system — a sixth of the entire US economy — in the next three weeks.
  • Each bill would create a new government health plan to compete against private insurers. In the House version, this “competition” would take place via a “national health insurance exchange,” a new entity run by a “Health Choices Commissioner.” In the Senate, a “public plan” would compete against private health plans through federally supervised state entities called “gateways.”
  • In the House bill, the government plan would pay doctors and hospitals on the basis of Medicare rates — rates that are so low that more and more doctors have stopped taking new Medicare patients.
  • The bill would collect an estimated $818 billion in new taxes over 10 years.
