Democrats Bury ‘Community Transformation’ Plans in Health Care Bill

Democrats Bury ‘Community Transformation’ Plans in Health Care Bill;

Senate Democrats inserted a wide-ranging provision for “Community Transformation Plans” in their half-completed health care bill, outlining the proposal on page 382 of the now-615 page bill, major sections of which have yet to be written.

Some Republicans have criticized the provision as a means to funnel money to liberal activist groups under the canopy of “community organizations,” whereby they will use the funds to promote big government health care but also monitor people’s eating and exercise regimens in the name of “healthy lifestyles.”

In the bill, the Affordable Health Choices Act, community transformation plans would be carried out using federal money and be overseen by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC would distribute the money as well as coordinate the various state, local, and “community” entities responsible for carrying out the plans.

According to the bill, both state and local governments are eligible for the grants, as are “national networks of community-based organizations,” a group which is not defined in the bill.

Comment: Explain to me how we are supposed to have any faith in any politician when both parties are actively subverting this nation and the citizenry? Do you think one REPUBLICAN is willing to take a stand against this asinine BS? Hell no, they are right there with Teddy Kennedy and Dodd screwing you and me and moving this crap through the system because they are without ethics or morals. STOP DRINKING THE KOOL-AID!

Boy, if you people don't understand that this has all the elements necessary for a police state you obviously are either spending too much time watching "American Idol" or "ESPN." WAKE UP, TURN OFF THE TV!

I love how giving back money the federal government took away in the first place is referred to as a grant. How generous.
