Obamacare levies fines on non-profit hospitals that offer free healthcare to the poor

It’s one of the lesser-known provisions in the so-called “Affordable” Care Act, but it’s having a major impact on charitable hospitals.  Obamacare actually fines hospitals that provide free health services to the poor.

from Daily Caller:

Charitable hospitals that treat uninsured Americans will be subjected to new levels of scrutiny of their nonprofit status and could face sizable new fines under Obamacare.

A new provision in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, which takes effect under Obamacare, sets new standards of review and installs new financial penalties for tax-exempt charitable hospitals, which devote a minimum amount of their expenses to treat uninsured poor people. Approximately 60 percent of American hospitals are currently nonprofit.

Charity for the uninsured is one of the factors that could discourage enrollment in Obamacare, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance or else face new taxes themselves from the IRS.

“It requires tax-exempt hospitals to do a community needs survey and file additional paperwork with the IRS every three years. This is to prove that the charitable hospital is still needed in their geographical area — ‘needed’ as defined by Obamacare and overseen by IRS bureaucrats,” said John Kartch, spokesman for Americans for Tax Reform.

If a few million filed a lawsuit against Obamacare, that would put a stop to it.

Maybe not...  The corrupt courts would simply say, "You Have No Standing to bring this action", and it's all over.

The reality of his own errors regarding Obamacare will hit him full force, is when him or his family will need life-saving medical care, and there will be no competent doctors or hospitals to save them!

Also, how will he explain to his wife and children that their mother/grandmother will NOT be receiving necessary life - extending medical services, as she "has lived a long, productive life, now it's her time to go"? 

S u r p r I s e d ????? Not me....! What a total jerk this guy is!!!!!!!!!!

for us to become free of this obama care many things must be done . defend your free providers against all attack foreign and domestic. become freinds with your neighbor use the internet civically to get the messages out and in  go to your sheriff tell him the situation if he doesnt respondto your needs themn find and elect one that will. hes your first line defense.

Now your at a 3 way door  door 1 gives you freedom but it comes at a price for the federal tyranny will not be discouraged easily. for if your sheriff cant help you then you may have to go to arms .Im not stating to do so but its your freedom . door 2 many come together to show their legislators that you are actualy the soveriegn ad that these coming grass roots elections will present people with the same need of freedom with justice.

door 3  and the door many will take  wilbe to do nothing and man the Fema Camps built for those who do just that ---nothing---

  " freedom and justice are only words it will take soveriegn action to precipitate them"

Thomas makes a point. what to do to keep the health care you all need especially with the chemicals in the foods. we are on that path right now. one path leads to a people coming tgether and electing people into office who mirror the peoples wishes.  law enforceme at the county level with the sheriff in the lead not in the rear using the ammunition of the republic and its real laws . 

A person who will bring together posses to defend the peoples needs and  ways of living. this havs been lacking in many states . i can happily say that in the http://constitutionclub.ning.com/ which deals with the sheriffs around the states more are coming on board check out your county see if your sheriff is there. also there is much to learn there.

If he isnt this cycle elect one you want  or go to an area which has a good one he'll also need posse members.

the CSPOA  is a direct site for the Sheriffs of america.  this is important for to maintain your health care freedom the feds must be driven back by what ever means ; Peacefull now but later we dont know. remember the decision is yours. i live in an area where freedom and justice are not only words but daily actions of people with themselves  and those they elect  in the city councils and county commissioners.

You see you are the driver of this car and its up to you and i to drive it responsibally taking care it is mechanically sound making sure that its fuel is clean as is freedom and justice.  we  wont see many chances to get this right  i have another site i give out i study it constantly  http://articlevprojecttorestoreliberty.com/ron-nielsen.html                  the sitehas been  developed for ones like me who want to seek and produce results not allow a tyranny to control my nature for i was raised in freedom with justice> I have given only one person control of my life besides myself and that is My heavenly father.

learn your civicvduties.

If you want to keep your area good health care be ready to support it. For the IRS has new mercs to do the IRS's jobs to shut them down.  hope you all see this as an attack upon the people of this nation , and id suggest you put a good sheriff in place so as he can develope posse's at the counties expense. militias are not the answer. If the Community cannot learn to protect itsself then as history shows us nations attacked from within do not survive long

Tie up the peoples hands and the worst of the mentalities will control as they always rize to the top.

Thomas to refuse his civic duty  is not the answer, one had better have a whole community on board .Talked to a neighbor lately?     been to a Cty Council meeting?     asked about Agend 21 as Well as Affordable health care?  these are the critiques in your neighborhoods which you and your neighbors will have to come to grips with.

Yes its Communism what is your plan to stop it>??  http://articlevprojecttorestoreliberty.com/ron-nielsen.html

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
