Action Alert!


Greetings Michigan Patriots,


It has come to my attention that a leftist group called "Health Care-Now"

 has organized "rallies" across the country for support of  HR 676


HR 676 is the "cradle to grave" government universal health care bill sponsored by MI 14th District Rep John Conyers Rep. John Conyers


Checking his site, you will find the list of endorsements is a coalition of top liberal/leftist and "progressive" organizations in the country.


You may recall that a  provision for a new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, was slipped into the  American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 or "Stimulus bill" American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 or "Stimulus Bill"


The National Coordinator of Health Information Technology will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective.  The goal is to reduce costs and "guide" your doctor's decisions (442, 446).  These provisions in the stimulus bill are virtually identical to what Daschle prescribed in his 2008 book, "Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis." According to Daschle, doctors have to give up autonomy and "learn to operate less like solo practitioners." The World According to Me


H.R. 676, the United States National Health Insurance Act (USNHI), establishes a unique American universal health insurance program with single payer financing. The bill would create a publicly financed, privately delivered health care system that improves and expands the already existing Medicare program to all U.S. residents, and all residents living in U.S. territories.

Every person living or visiting in the United States and the U.S. Territories would receive a United States National Health Insurance Card and ID number once they enroll at the appropriate location. Social Security numbers may not be used when assigning ID cards.

Proposed Funding For USNHI Program

  • Maintain current federal and state funding for existing health care programs
  • Establish employer/employee payroll tax of 4.75% (includes present 1.45% Medicare tax)
  • Establish a 5% health tax on the top 5% of income earners, 10% tax on top 1% of wage earners
  • ¼ of 1% stock transaction tax
  • Close corporate tax loopholes
  • Repeal the Bush tax cuts for the highest income earners


From the American Daily Review Health-Care Now

HR 676 ... eliminating choice, and narrowing all of your options down to the single payer, specifically, the federal government.

The federal government, because they will be the ones with the money, will dictate to you what treatments, medicines, and procedures you can or cannot have..... eventually the federal government will decide that if you are too old and not able to contribute to society anymore, you don't need that arthritis pain medicine, or that new hip joint, or the medicine that will keep you from dying from a heart attack. After all, it would be a waste of money to spend precious tax dollars on an individual that no longer contributes to the collective state.... Obama's healthcare plan will add to the staggering deficit being created by the current Administration, kill hundreds of thousands of jobs connected to the private healthcare industry, reduce the income level of the medical profession forcing much of the talent to leave the industry or to not enter the industry in the first place, increase the waiting time for care, and put your health matters into the hands of federal bureaucrats with only cutting the costs of the programs in mind.

Healthcare costs will swell, quality of care will drop, and the economic stability of the federal government will weaken. The federal government cannot run, or heavily regulate, a system like this efficiently, and the hopes of turning it around once they realize it is an abysmal failure will be slim to none because the private industry will be destroyed by then.

In addition, the passage of HR 676 is listed as part of the Communist Platform 2.8  Enact HR 676, US National Health Insurance Act, single payer.  on its web site American Thinker


From the the Editor-in-Chief of Health Management Technology Magazine

 I'm the Editor-in-Chief of Health Management Technology Magazine ( and I'm simply a concerned citizen, like you, who thinks no industry is EVER improved by big government, it just becomes more expensive, rationed and less available.  Numerous examples exist around the world to support my belief.  My strong desire is for no one to go without adequate healthcare, but allowing the government to usurp yet another private industry is not the answer.  Incidentally, the healthcare "solution" H.R. 676 proposes is being tried on a smaller scale right now in Massachusetts and the result has been predictable — more expensive, rationed and less available — just like Canada, which is adopting privatization to save its healthcare system.  Government healthcare is not the answer anywhere that it's tried, in America or throughout the world.
