The New America?


I think this should be read by anyone in America. As we approach a new age that smells all to similar to the Nazi regime. Socialism is not the direction we need to go to pursue the fullness of life and to live within great freedoms. The Power of the People can stop this from
happening to us, our parents, our grandparents, our children, and to
following generations. An Indianapolis doctor's letter to Sen. Bayh about the Bill.

Here is a letter I sent to Senator Bayh.
July 23, 2009

Senator Bayh,
As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the
health care bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am
shocked by the brazenness of the government's proposed involvement in
the patient-physician relationship. The very idea that the government
will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not
helpful in designing a health care system that works for all. Every
physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our health care
system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through
congress will be a disaster if passed.
I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at
the following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot
possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the
country and our fellow citizens.
Page 22 of the HC Bill: Mandates that the Govt will audit
books of all employers that self-insure!!
Page 30 Sec 123 of HC bill: THERE WILL BE A GOVT COMMITTEE
that decides what treatments/benefits you get.

Page 145 Line 15-17: An Employer MUST auto-enroll employees

this as employers will be forced to reduce its work force, benefits,
and wages/salaries to cover such a huge expense.)

who does not provide public option will pay 8% tax on all payroll! (See

shall not be treated as tax." (Yes, it really says that!)
Page 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill: Govt will reduce physician
services for Medicaid Seniors. (Low-income and the poor are affected.)

Page 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors: It doesn't matter what
specialty you have trained yourself in -- you will all be paid the

whatever the Govt deems preventable (i.e...re-admissions).

Page 298 Lines 9-11: Doctors: If you treat a patient during

Page 341 Lines 3-9: The Govt has authority to disqualify
Medicare Advance Plans, HMOs, etc. (Forcing people into the Govt plan)

Page 354 Sec 1177: The Govt will RESTRICT enrollment of

Page 379 Sec 1191: The Govt creates more bureaucracy via a
"Tele-Health Advisory Committee." (Can you say HC by phone?)

Page 425 Lines 4-12: The Govt mandates "Advance-Care Planning
Consult." (Think senior citizens end-of-life patients.)
Page 425 Lines 17-19: The Govt will instruct and consult

mandatory!)
Page 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3: The Govt provides an
"approved" list of end-of-life resources; & nbsp;guiding you in death.

on "end-of-life." (The Govt has a say in how your life ends!)

Page 489 Sec 1308: The Govt will cover marriage and family
therapy. (Which means Govt will insert itself into your marriage even.)

Page 494-498: Govt will cover Mental Health Services
including defining, creating, and rationing those services.

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything
possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers
of the proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.

Furthermore, if you vote for a bill that enforces socialized
medicine on the country and destroys the doctor-patient relationship, I
will do everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the
next election.

Respectfully,

Stephen E. Fraser, MD

  1. Adam, you know I respect your opinion, and obviously your right to say whatever you want on your blog.

    With that said, you gotta be careful about passing things along that aren't truth if your message is about how dangerous the other side's message is:
    http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/frazer.asp

    I spotted this email immediately, because a buddy of mine back home posted it on his blog back in July, which is when this started going around the internet anonymously.

    Like I said Bro, it's obviously your blog and you are more than free to say whatever you think, and I usually truly enjoy your postings and mental explorations. I also respect you enough to let you know when I think you should reconsider something.

    PS - We HAVE to do Maxine's or Country Kitchen this week, I'm almost done!

  2. hmmm... Did not know that this was untrue, I admit I just saw it became outraged and posted it. I do still hold to my opinion that this new health care deal is no good.

    I agree on the maxine or Kountry Kitchen deal soon though. Call a brother!
