Obamacare’s Latest Target: Charitable Hospitals

615 obama sign office deskRemember when Nancy Pelosi told us that Congress had “pass to the bill (Obamacare) so we could find out what was in it”? Well, Congress certainly passed this atrocity (without our consent, of course), and now we are discovering that the law is one of the hugest assaults on our freedom since the birth of our nation. In fact, we are just learning that the latest “Obamacare missile” is aimed right at charitable hospitals.

According to the 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.”

In fact, the Daily Caller says, “Obamacare’s new requirements could slam hospitals with massive $50,000 fines if they fail to meet bureaucrats’ standards.”

This is outrageous. But what do we expect from elitists who exempted themselves from the very law they forced down our throats? And what do we expect from elitists who also happen to see distributing charity as their job, not ours?

In reality, charity is a virtue of the heart, using the blessings God shares with us to share these blessings with others in need. Needless to say, churches, Christian hospitals and other charities have a long history of rising up to meet the needs of people better and more efficiently than any government program ever could.

Unfortunately, through Obamacare, the government is taking more power out of the hands of charitable organizations, and the government gets to decide exactly how healthcare can be distributed. Contrary to what Washington elitists may believe, Obamacare is NOT even charity at all, but BIG government control over our lives.
