Health Care Legislation Creates Over 100 New Bureaucracies


Health Care Legislation Creates Colossal New Bureaucracies

RE: The 2,032 page Speaker Pelosi Healthcare bill that was approved by a narrow margin in the House of Representatives on November 7th and the 2,074 page Senator Reid Healthcare bill just introduced creates over 100 new bureaucracies that are sure to be inefficient with taxpayer money.

ACTION: We urge you to contact your Congressman and Senators, as well as to inform your local activists and friends that this bill is a regulatory nightmare destined to create lots of pork barrel projects, more government agencies and endless edicts from Washington, DC that waste taxpayer money.

ISSUE-IN-BRIEF: The health-care bill in its current form would create a regulatory mess estimated by one Senator to add100,000 new administrators in over 100 new bureaucracies. Many of these bureaucracies will get between doctors and patients. Others are simply a waste of money. Among the many new bureaucracies are:

· Health Benefits Advisory Committee

· Health Insurance Exchange

· Public Health Insurance Option

· Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research

· Comparative Effectiveness Research Commission

· Patient Ombudsman for Comparative Effectiveness Research

· Accountable Care Organization Pilot Program

· Community Based Medical Home Pilot Program

· Independent Patient Centered Medical Home Pilot Program

· Qualified Health Benefits Plan Ombudsman

· Grant Program for Health Insurance Cooperatives

· Telehealth Advisory Committee

· Prevention and Wellness Trust

· Personal Care Attendant Workforce Advisory Panel

· Community Prevention Stakeholders Board

To pay for all this new bureaucracy there will be dozens of new taxes totaling nearly $800 billion and extending to items such as wheelchairs and hospital gowns. Almost every major recent public opinion poll has shown more Americans oppose Obama/Pelosi/Reid Care than support it. Just this week, in The Wall Street Journal, the Dean of the Harvard Medical School gave the health care reform debate “a failing grade.”
