Found at Last: Something Good in ObamaCare

You had to know that buried somewhere in the 2,800 pages of legalistic gobbledygook comprising the ObamaCare bill, there would have to be something of actual benefit to the public:

It seems that in their haste to cram socialized medicine down the throats of the American people, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

According to reports, that amendment says the government cannot use doctors to collect “any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition.”

CNN fumes that this is a gift to the demonized “gun lobby.” For once it is almost right. Harry Reid admits he stuck the provision in there to keep the NRA off his back.

This is why if you have not yet joined the NRA, you need to do so right now.

United we are strong.

    Whorehouse Harry gets a high rating from the NRA. We’ll see if he caves into the glorious halo of Comrade Chairman Hussein the Immaculate. Maybe they will frame gun ownership as a health issue and restrict rights that way.

    The Tennessee Tonnage (fat Al Gore) left the Fat Cave long enough to sell out to the oil-funded Al Jazeera. Does the Nobel Committee give out a prize for hypocrisy?

    There is already talk on the far-Left about somehow sneaking anti-gun legislation into some kind of “health” law. The idea came from, of course, NYC’s Queen Bloomberg. Make no mistake, especially with limp-wristed King Bloomberg supplying the ideas. They will find a way to ban, not “assault weapons”, but ALL guns!

    Never mind, it looks lie an old poll that someone recycled

  • Sam Adams

    Who thinks that the provisions of the ObamaCare law will ever be translated into the actual regulation?

    Prediction…..your doctor will be asking you about your ownership of firearms. After all, the is the same Harry Reid that is required by law to pass a budget for the federal government every year.

    USA Today is owned by Gannett who also owns the Journal News. Maybe they should tell the douchnozzles at that paper how the poll is going?

    This story puts a sh*t-eatin’ grin on my face.

    The problem with the wording of this provision is the same problem we have here just north of you all. It says “lawful ownership”. All they have to do is pass an EO that says all semi-autos are illegal then all the doctors are off the hook and can report you. Obummer won’t hesitate one second to issue another EO to do this if he decides he wants to. Our government has done the same thing here with the removal of the long gun registry. Now all another government or even our current one has to do is issue an Order in Council (your EO) and ban all private firearms ownership and the confiscation will commence. At least you still have the 2nd ammendment to fall back on for now. As a dual citezen of our two countries I wish we both had politicians that would actually do what is best for our countries and not for their self interests.

    I didn’t realize those pop up polls could run so long.
    Apparently US Slaves Today left the water running with gun owners overflowing.

  • OldmanRick

    Reid made an almost unpardonable mistake. He has promised not to make another and as a penance he flogged himself repeatedly while groveling before his marxist master pleading for forgiveness.

  • Bob Roberts

    then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

    Maybe they should have read it to find out what’s in it before passing it?

  • Crazy Dad

    If the law does not specify a punishment for breaking the law, or some part of it, then breaking the law is likely. Doctors, or other health care providers, will be in fear of losing their reimbursements. They will be like dogs at the end of a leash & choker collar. Of course, they’ll be asking you about your guns.
