omg, I’ma in Heaven. Pincha me. \o/ The Health Care bill passed with flying colors tonight *whiplash smile* This means no more denial of health benefits. \o/ No more pre-condition disqualification. \o/ No more denial of services. \o/ Armed Services TriCare health care providers will finally be transferred out of the Dept. of Defense (to God knows where, but hey, that’s something). \o/ Maybe They will combine the 3 national health care providers, (named 7/14/09), TriWest Healthcare Alliance, Phoenix, AZ, Aetna Govt. Health Plans of Hartford, CT, and United Health Military and Veterans Services (sorry about your benefits being shaved a little, but..
maybe they can find a way to fix it since the contracts cumulative value is more than $55.3 billion. Surely They can find a way. Another great thing about this passed bill is that there will be NO MORE GAMING THE SYSTEM. I’m not sure if physicians will get a raise or cost of living stipend for taking on Medicare patients, but I’m sure the govt will give them more money than they get now. So don’t worry. Thank God there won’t be any health care benefits for Americans until 2014. The Dems, thank goodness, had the keen foresight to begin taxing Americans now, rather than later, (come on, we can DO this!); in other words we’ll get 6 terrific years of health care coverage for the price of 10. Does it get any better than this? Hah. Didn’t think so. *grin*
And last, but not least, we’ll see no more back room shady business deals and no more retched, quid pro quo shenanigans. All of the new agencies that will be needed to carry out services will be corruption-proof. Also.., I assume everyone knows the IRS is the enforcement agency for this enterprise. What govt agency can better juggle this endeavor? The IRS already has America under its thumb. Plus, they only need to hire about 17,000 more empoyees to make sure everyone is complying with the new programs. (I still don’t know why IRS needs all those new shotguns though, anybody?). So y’all, there’s plenty to be jubilant about here. NO MORE lying, stealing, amoral, unethical behavior from Congress or any one of numerous new agencies and employees running this very tight, well-thought-out blueprint for a worry-free future- for all. Americans. This health care bill, passed tonight, is the best thing that’s happened to Americans in a looong time.
