• $695 or 2.5% of income – the fine if refuse to purchase health insurance (or refuse to report you do)
  • $2,000 – fine on employers for failure to buy health insurance for employees
  • 16,000 new IRS agents (no new doctors, and likely loss of doctors)
  • 10-13% increase in individual insurance premiums
  • CCHC President TWEETING on the House Debate:
    Go to:

    Call Congress NOW!

    The 2-hour Debate Begins soon.

    Pontification already on display.
    (view on C-SPAN).

    Speaker Pelosi does not yet have all the votes!

    BREAKING: Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) appears to have disappeared. She may not show up to vote. She voted yes on the first House bill under duress. She now needs encouragement to vote NO: 202-225-2965; FAX 202-225-5859

    Below are two separate lists of House members you can call and fax.

    Your efforts today will impact the vote. The vote is likely to take place early this evening. There will be three votes. One on the rules of the debate. One on the Senate bill and last one on the Reconciliation bill. The telephone and fax lines are open. The staff are in their offices. It’s a nice day, but freedom hangs in the balance.

    The Bills:

    HR 3590 (Senate Democrate Health Care Takeover Bill)
    HR 4872 (“Fix It” Reconciliation Bill)

    A few numbers:

    • $695 or 2.5% of income – the fine if refuse to purchase health insurance (or refuse to report you do)
    • $2,000 – fine on employers for failure to buy health insurance for employees
    • 16,000 new IRS agents (no new doctors, and likely loss of doctors)
    • 10-13% increase in individual insurance premiums
    • 50 state health exchanges (like Gov. Pawlenty tried to create in 2007 and 2008)
    • 3.8% tax on investment income
    • 2,700 page bill
    • $569.5 billion in tax increases
    • $2.4 trillion – the cost of the full 10 years of implementation
    • 0.9% increase on Medicare payroll tax
    • 40% excise tax on high-cost plans
    • marriage penalty (premiums rise/employment threatened)
    • $500 billion cuts in Medicare
    • doublecounts of savings
    • $71 billion to manage the system
    • $454 B – deficit per CBO
    • $662 B – deficit after Pelosi and Co. pass the “Doc Fix-it” bill to suspend physician pay cuts

    New Bureaucracies:

    • 1 Medicare Payment Board (Independent Medicare Advisory Board) to making binding decisions on Medicare spending – unless Congress takes action otherwise
    • 111 new government bureaucracies – all must be paid for
    • 50 State Health Exchanges through which all individuals and small businesses must buy insurance if don’t receive it through employer.
    • Health Choices Administration (true doublespeak), headed by presidential appointee.
