H. R. 3121 Health Care Reform Act

Filed under: Culture, Politics | Tags: ,

This is an act put forth by TN Rep. David Roe M. D. it seeks to repeal the law commonly referred to as Obamacare, and institute changes to American Health care which will allow all Americans to be able to actually get health insurance, without having to depend on a one size fits all policy. This act seeks to increase the ability of American citizens to access health care by giving a tax deduction of up to $20,000 per family. It also will adjust the Health Savings Accounts by increasing the amount that a person can contribute to same, and expanding the things that this plan can be used to pay for.

For vulnerable persons this bill will increase the Federal Support for State High Risk pools so that more people with pre-existing conditions or other at risk conditions will be able to get affordable healthcare through these pools. There is also a provision for ending the State based insurance market for health insurance, thereby increasing competition while allowing individuals to go across state lines to procure insurance policies for their health care. It will also allow for small business owners to pool together to purchase insurance plans for their employees, thereby reducing overall costs to those businesses.

Next it will address Medical Liability problems by limiting Attorney fees, limiting non-economic awards while leaving economic liability with no cap as presently is the case. In other words making the system more equitable to all who are involved in these types of situations. Finally it will address the pro-life aspects of the current situation by ending the requirement that all policies must cover abortion, and abortifacients. It will also stop the spending of Federal funds for these items except in the case of rape, incest, or the life of the mother being threatened.

In other words this bill attempts to level the playing field for all Americans, insuring that all have access to affordable health care without destroying the private sector, or being the heavy hand of the Federal government to bear on the people. It is a common sense solutions. If you would like to see the bill itself you can get a copy of it by going to http://thomas.loc.gov/home/thomas.php and in the search box enter H.R. 3121 it will bring up the bill, and you can then read it online or use the Thomas site to go to the Library of Congress and download a copy in PDF or Text format. The bill is 182 pages long, much less bulk than the 2000 plus pages of the Obamacare act. It is also somewhat easier to read. There are also 114 co-sponsors of this bill.

Id do hope you will take a look at this bill, it is a common sense approach to a difficult problem, if you agree with me then check to see if your representative is one of the co-sponsors, if not, you might want to contact them and ask them to join with those who have co-sponsored this bill.

Textbook changes 2nd Amendment

Here is the article in regard to this Texas School.
“Texas High School Textbook Rewrites 2nd Amendment–Literally
Posted on September 18, 2013 by DZaidle

“The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”

That’s how a U.S. History textbook at Guyer High School in the Denton, Texas, ISD presents the Second Amendment (Article II of the Bill of Rights) to the Constitution of the United States.

From the Daily Paul website:

Guyer High School (and obviously several others) are complicit in attempting to condition students to interpret the 2nd Amendment in a clearly opposite manner in which it was intended. The 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th are also misinterpreted.
This textbook, currently being used by Guyer High School, is attempting to redefine the Second Amendment to impressionable young minds. Parents, you must speak up and demand action. Investigate your child’s history book ASAP, and post more pictures in the comments below. Call your school and demand that revisionist history books like this are removed from the school district.
Actual 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
A militia is a body of citizens enrolled for military service, and called out periodically for drill but serving full-time only in emergencies. It’s a common man army of citizens, NOT soldiers. The citizens are called up in emergencies to protect the free State.
The 2nd Amendment says that a militia is necessary to protect a free State, so in order to be able to have a militia, the citizens have a natural right to keep and bear arms and the government cannot infringe on that right.
The textbook version implies that we’re only allowed to keep and bear arms if we’re in a State militia, a clear misrepresentation of the 2nd Amendment.”

I have to admit that I find this to be a reprehensible textbook that is being used in any school. It is one thing to teach our kids about the historical significance of our founding documents, but to actually lie about what they say, is not acceptable. I understand that folks have disagreements with some of the things that go on in our country, on both sides of the political spectrum, but to lie about what any document says, is so totally wrong that whoever approved this textbook, should be summarily dismissed from their position.

I do want to see conversation about our founding documents, I think it would be immensely helpful if we actually studied those documents and learned about them in an honest way, but it seems that our educators would rather brainwash our children into doing what the progressives/liberal side of the discussion wants, rather than allowing for the free exchange of ideas. If any of you are parents, do you know what is being taught to your children? If so do you approve of it? If not WHY NOT? If you do not like what you see in your children’s textbooks, then come together with other parents and stand up for truth.

Were we cheated by the Media?

The story of Vietnam is one that has told us how the people of this nation were against the war and hated our military. Is this true? This is a great website and I do hope you will visit it and find out the truth about We The People and our Military during and after the Vietnam conflict. I think that the truth needs to be told, and we need to know what really happened instead of the slanted garbage that the Main Stream Media continues to peddle.

The people on the left, and that includes many in the print and Television media, do not want us to know what is really going on in our nation. They have an agenda and it is the agenda that is pushed, not the truth. We do not have a free press, that has been evidenced by the Department of (In)justice under the present administration going after reporters who will tell the truth about what they are doing. It is also a reality that our Main Stream Media will do anything they can to indoctrinate we the people into the “Progressive” meme so that we will become like sheep, led wherever they want us to go instead of moving into the future as FREE and INDEPENDENT citizens of a Constitutional Republic.

I suggest you start your investigation at the above website, just click on the link at Is the true? and you will see what is the truth. From there you might want to start actually doing your own research to find out what the Main Stream Media (Socialists) don’t want you to know.

Armed Citizenry – Samuel Adams

Samuel Adams one of the Founding Fathers of our nation wrote an interesting piece in regard to Militia as opposed to Standing Armies if you click on the link you will be taken to a copy of his treatise.

It is time we understand what the founders meant when the wrote the Second Amendment to our Constitution, this is only one of a number of letters and statements that have been preserved for future generations to understand what was thought and meant by our founders. I hope you will read this and some of the other comments on this website.

Supreme Court and First Amendment

Constitution Daily has an article regarding the First Amendment and a case that was heard last week by the Supreme Court of the United States.

I was going to comment on this on their website, but, they require that you have a Facebook account, I will never have a Facebook account since the Federal Government has free rein to read the content and to garner your personal information from that place. So I will write here what I see as the truth about this and other decisions that the “High court” has made and hope that this time they will do the right thing.

It seems to me that we have gone far afield from the actual First Amendment. Even Jefferson, upon whom the Court has relied so heavily did not say that there was to be no prayer. His letter to the Baptists was simply to say that the government could not interfere in their practices. The First Amendment clearly says, that the Congress of the United States shall make no law restricting our religious practices. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” it does not mention any wall of separation and historically there was no restrictions on what could or could not be said from the pulpit. In the years when Jefferson was President, he authorized the use of the Capitol building for religious services every Sunday. The Courts have decided that we are not allowed to worship as we wish, and the IRS has further restricted our ability to speak from the pulpit.

It is my fervent prayer that this will be reversed. That we will be returned to our original freedom of worship. The federal government for too long has been allowed to meddle in the affairs of the people, they have grown into a leviathan that threatens to destroy every freedom we have enjoyed. We are already restricted by this government, they have even gone so far as to refer to Veterans and members of the opposition as terrorists. It is high time that the courts went back to their proper role as judges not as legislators. Stop making law from the bench, and go back to strict interpretation of the law of the land (The Constitution). Give back our right to assemble, to speak our minds and to worship freely as was the intent of the framers of our Constitution.

It is time that we the people reasserted our rightful place in the scheme of things, we are the proper place for the power of this nation, not our Political Royalty (Professional Politicians). We need to reassert ourselves, let us call for a Constitution Amending by the States as it allows in the Constitution. Not a new Constitution, but amending the one we have to make clear that we the people are the ones who actually hold the power.
