Obamacare Website Quietly Deletes Reference to ‘Free Health Care’

The Weekly Standard – by Jeryl Bier

Even as President Obama and his administration are making a last minute push to encourage enrollment in Obamacare, a quiet change was made on the Healthcare.gov website regarding those who will still not be able to afford coverage after the program kicks in. From at least June 26, 2013 to as recently as September 15, under the topic, “Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?” the following statement appeared: “If you can’t afford any health plan, you can get free or low-cost health and dental care at a nearby community health center.” Here is how the page in question appeared:  

However, sometime between September 16 and September 23, the reference to “free” care was dropped. The title of the topic was changed as well, and now reads: “Where can I get low-cost care in my community?” Here is how the page currently appears:

The page in question is not a new one, as the webpage’s Internet address remains the same, still containing the word “free”: www.healthcare.gov/where-can-i-get-free-or-low-cost-care/.  However, there is no notation anywhere on the page that it was revised; the change just appeared unannounced.

Other changes include dropping references to “dental” care and the availability of “prescription drugs,” as well as exchanging the phrase “specialized care for more serious conditions” for the milder “referrals to specialized care.”

Since President Obama has been emphasizing of late how inexpensive Obamacare will be for many Americans, advertising the availability of “free” health care might have been viewed as a deterrent to purchasing even the least expensive option from the government-run exchanges. Since the “bronze” and “silver” level plans that the president has recently been touting as equaling “the cost of your cable bill” and “less than your cell phone bill” will still entail significant out-of-pocket costs for medical care, “free” might still look more attractive to many on the lower end of the income scale. It may be that community health centers will still offer free care to some, but visitors to Healthcare.gov will no longer be made aware of the option.

  1. I received this in an email.

    What does this word mean?

    Dhimmitude

    The word “Dhimmitude” is found in the new health care bill; so what does it mean?

    Thought this was interesting and worth passing on. Obama used it in the health care bill. Now isn’t this interesting? It is also included in the health care law.

    Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. I typed it into Google and started reading. Pretty interesting. It’s on page 107 of the healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists. It is a REAL word.

    Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad (Holy War). Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.

    ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States . Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking”, and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.

    How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivable, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax.

    Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health insurance needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims.

    This is Dhimmitude.
