Debunking HR 3200 Attacks, line by line

Found this on Facebook awhile back, and thought I'd share. I assume some of you have also have otherwise intelligent libertarian and conservative friends who, for whatever reason, are just getting the facts all wrong, and then try to force them down you're throat. Here is a point for point analysis for HR 3200, posted in response to the idiotic and insane drivel we've seen in talking points from the right.

Pg 22 of the HC Bill MANDATES the Govt will audit the books of ALL EMPLOYERS that self insure!!

Ø Page 22 of H.R. 3200 requests a study, not an audit, of the effects to which rating rules are likely to cause adverse selection in the large group market and employer self insurance market insurance market. This does not require an audit of ALL employers that self insure.

Pg 30 Sec 123 of HC bill - THERE WILL BE A GOVT COMMITTEE that decides what treatments/benes u get

Ø Nothing in the bill infringes upon you and your doctor’s ability to make medical decisions. The National Health Benefits Advisory Council is not a “government committee” but is made up of providers, consumer representatives, employers, labor, health insurance issuers, independent experts and representatives of government agencies. They will make recommendations about minimum standards of care and covered benefits that insurance companies have to offer- ensuring that everyone has a health plan that provides them with adequate coverage.

This is pretty long, so, it's probably best to just read it on Facebook:
