H.R. 3200 'fine-print' sells their Grandmother 'down the river'

Misleading plan, unless you examine the first dozen or so pages...
SUMMARY: H.R. 3200 (PDF)
AUDIO: Listen (Down the river for seniors.)

Not all Americans want Healthcare, and many have built initial surplus in HSA account; and then subscribe to Long Term Care policy, to protect assets.
Already taxed income can accumulate in excess of hundreds of thousands.

As is the choice of my U.S. Grandparents...
More explanation: Health Savings accounts put money away in your own tax sheltered account... They accompany this with private Long Term Care...

HSAs -- which reduce your financial protection from health costs -- are a perfectly good option if you don't really need financial protection from health costs.


I can't imagine how the US Gov. can legally strip-out hundreds of thousands of an Insured's private surplus funds; and disturb years of policy payments with which guarantee "specific coverage" in Long Term care; if you make a simple change to your policy...

But the powers they have become, also (nearing page 15) force Ins. Companies like Blue Cross, to convert plan-holders to HMO Medical, and then charge you additional taxes if you've not converted to Gov. plan.

Do you support the plan for health care reform?
No: 78.3% 78.3% ; Yes: 20.7% 20.7% ; Not Sure: 1.0% 1.0%
