This is a result of an invitation from the Obama administration to comment on the Pelosi health plan.

H.R. 3962 provides for the following:

Permits federal taxpayer funding of abortion services.

Provides for a "health care czar" called the Health Choices Commissioner (like commissioners in Russia).

Allows for "community organizations" like ACORN and Planned Parenthood to assist the Health Choices Commissioner.

Encourages identity fraud for illegal immigrants.

Retains the "death panels."

Contains no ban on federal promotion of assisted suicide.

Retains individual and employer mandates to purchase health insurance or else face financial penalty.

Imposes a 2.5 percent tax on an individual's adjusted gross income if they fail to purchase "acceptable" health care coverage.

Imposes a surtax starting in 2011 on high-income people.

This is just the half of it! More to follow. Thanks for the read.

    With over 2000 pages in the bill, I can assure you that there are far more destructive mandates in it, as well.
