PolitiFact | Boustany and other Republicans say health care plan would create 53 new government bureaucracies
Quote:
boustany/boustany-and-other-republicans-say-health-care-pla/
The first two are no-doubt-abouters. No. 1 is a Health Benefits Advisory Committee (Section 123, Pg. 30). This is a new panel of experts that will make recommendations to the secretary of Health and Human Services on covered health benefits. It's an advisory board, but a new entity nonetheless. New bureaucracy, check.
No. 2 on the list is the creation of a Health Choices Administration (Section 141, Pg. 41). This is a biggie. The Health Choices Administration would be an independent executive branch agency charged with establishing qualified plan standards, creating the health insurance exchange and administering affordability credits for low-income people. New bureaucracy, check.
After this, however, the list gets murkier.

Creates a bunch of new government jobs though and those jobs will have health insurance, retirement and other benefits. Just seems to add to the government budget.

If all they plan to do is subsidize insurance then they do not need all these "new" job positions.

Bush's government take over of airport security and the creation of the massive DHS improved safety, security and effeciency. If done properly it can work.

The highlighted text indicates the core of the issue: We have very few national anything in this country and that is by design and how it should be. The Federal system of states promotes experimentation and innovation whereas a National system locks us all in to the solution which we know from experience will just plain suck. Not to mention moving more power in to the hands of the Federal government. We who oppose national anything do so because we desire to live under the system Founders labored for years to create: A Federal system. To all Obamabots: keep your national systems.
