I have warned, for some time, that this legislation, now the legal law of the land, is the single largest transfer of wealth and power from individuals, to the federal bureaucrats (working for Congress, who in turn are completely bought off by the by special interest lobbies).
The absurdity of Nancy Pelosi, part of what we call “THE COVEN” here in California along with Diane Feinstein, Maxine Waters and Barbara Boxer) saying: “we have to pass it to know what’s in it” further inflames the tsunami of utter ignorance and massive moral black-hole of real leadership honesty in this nation.
Just for point of fact, none of the four women mentioned above when entering politics some three or four decades ago, had any financial wealth, and all today are at least double digit multi millionaires, or above (one closing in on billions) in net wealth.
I do not care what your politics are, or are not, the fact that this legislation was indeed written by lawyers for Big Pharma, should have told you everything you needed know, whether or not you drank Pelosi’s Kool-Aid or not.
I have read the bill, now law, cover to cover.
Those “death panels” you were warned about are TRUE; at age 75 any cost issue must be approved by governmental and unaccountable (that cannot be sued) political appointees, whose sole purpose is to stop you from receiving any costly care after age 75.
Said another way, Uncle Sam wants you DEAD after you 17th Social Security Check, and that is the current hard number of actuarial life expectancy right NOW!
38 or so cents on every dollar of this law is mandated to DRUGS from Big Pharma.
Another 48 cents on the dollar, not overlapping the 38 cents of flat out theft by Big Pharma, is going to new bureaucracies, death panels, enforcement cops, special prosecutorial divisions, hospital administrators, hospital brick and mortar, lobbies masked as medical foundations, lawyers, hospital bureaucrats, insurance companies, actuaries, more IRS agents in the tens of thousands, auditors, etc.
If you can do the simple math, at least 86 cents on every dollar of this law, is RIPPED OFF by Uncle Sam, with little or none left over for MD’s, front line medical services, patients, or real medical attention whatsoever.
Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) once defined a GOLD MINER “as a liar standing next to a hole in the ground telling you he can get you a great deal on the hole”.
I would respectfully suggest, based on the hard evidence, the US House, the US Senate, The White House and The US Supreme Court irrespective of political affliation, are that liar, and anyone voting for any incumbent is a fool.
As the old Asian saying suggests: “In every disaster there is opportunity”.

By now, we all know the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate portion of Obamacare by declaring it a “tax.”
