    Some of the the uncertainty and fright over the so-called “Death Panels” contained in the Healthcare Legislation appears to have been been smothered, at least for the time being. The so called “Death Panels” as they were termed, were indeed sinister and scary. These “Death Panels” gave one or two people the power to determine what might happen to you as you face a terminal illness. It should not have been this way or even interpreted this way! But then again who knows how to interpret many provisions in Obamacare unless you have read the law at least three times — no small feat at more than 2700 pages!

    Surprisingly, just as the “Death Panels” scare was becoming a Front Page Event, President Obama and his team had second thoughts about this subject, and the “Death Panels” were no longer going to be in the Legislation.

I read for hours, re-reading many paragraphs due to verbiage was difficult to understand. I found the opposite to be true in other areas with passages so compelling that it was hard to stop reading. Much to my surprise, it was these areas that had absolutely nothing to do with “health care”.

    I have read the entire bill two more times — start to finish.  My general conclusion is that this bill is the swindle of our lifetime. I was astounded to see the hit that small businesses like my own will take. Insurance premiums were undoubtedly going to increase and capital gains taxes would go up an additional 3.8 %. Expenditures of $600 or more would require a W-9, adding the burden of hiring someone to administer this new paperwork. The taxation measures aimed at small businesses are so frightening that I began to reconsider my hiring plans and explored the very dark possibility that my small business would not survive another two years.  My business at this writing is growing and is profitable but this law leaves its future uncertain.
