A Town Hall Meeting sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Tea Party will be held Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. to discuss “Obamacare.”
The meeting will focus on the effects of Obamacare on healthcare, taxes, spending and Medicare, and will include a panel of distinguished experts. There will be Q&A session to answer questions and concerns. The meeting has no admission fees and will be held at Lakehills Covenant Church on 7000 Rossmore Lane in El Dorado Hills.
The panel will include Pacific Legal Foundation Attorney Tim Sandefur; Congressman McClintock’s Chief of Staff Igor Berman; Dr. Ronald Tachibana, M.D. Family Physician with Physicians Council for Responsible Reform; Pam McDonald, administrator with McDonald Medical Consultants and Midtown Primary Care Associates, Sacramento; and President of The Pacific Research Institute Sally Pipes.
Obamacare will cost Americans an extra $1.7 trillion as currently estimated by the Congressional Budget Office. What are some of the costs of this extravagant takeover of about 15 percent of the economy?
• Major impact on small business health care plans. Small businesses may be forced into government run exchanges or be fined for not providing coverage for their employees.
• Up to 21 new taxes from $65 billion in individual and employer penalties to a $20 billion tax on medical device companies.
• Reduction in the supply of doctors to provide medical services. We could lose between 25-40 percent of our practicing doctors who simply do not want to work in a government healthcare system. This is the experience of Canada — a shortage of qualified doctors.
• Doctors refusing to take Medicare patients because of the onerous paperwork and fixed price payments. And many others.
The Town Hall Meeting is being sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Tea Party as part of its commitment to return America to a country of limited government, fiscal responsibility and free markets.
