Health Care Act
Forced to pay for unneeded benefits
ObamaCare is just 10 months away -- the Affordable Health Care Act (the government has yet to define affordable). According to the law every man, woman, and child "must" be covered by health insurance. And not just any health insurance, the health plans defined by the government. The plans must include "all" the mandated health benefits -- all benefits even though you don't need them, you will have to pay for them. Benefits like birth control, maternity, drug rehabilitation, acupuncture, etc. You don't have a choice.
It is like the government states you have to buy a car, not just any car; but one that has every bell and whistle; back-up cameras, chrome wheels, GPS, leather seats, 14 air bags, etc. Even though you just need a car that gets to where you are going and back again. And since you can't afford the government car, you just have to walk, but if you walk you will be taxed (excuse me -- it is not a tax, it is a fine).
Remember the larger the government the lesser you freedoms.
