Who is this "secretary"? HHS?
From zerobam's 'medicaid for everyone!' health insurance bill:
Where/how often is mysterious overlord called "Secretary" appears:
“Secretary” 3267 times
“Secretary shall” 1051 times
“by the Secretary” 651 times
“Secretary may” 371 times
“Secretary determines” 222 times
“Secretary under” 80 times
“Secretary in consultation” 39 times
So what's all this mean? I dunno, why don't you click the link and read all the places where this mysterious government official rules over your healthcare and your life.
But you already have health care insurance, you state?
Zerobams said you could even keep it, no?
Does it qualify? Can your employer even afford to expand their health insurance so it can qualify, to what the government/secretary thinks it should be?
(c) RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE SECRETARY.— (1) IN GENERAL.—The
Secretary shall, by regulation, establish criteria for the certification of health plans as qualified health plans.
Funny stuff, huh?
man, this crazy, godlike secretary seems to be all over the place.
How about what you eat in restaurants? I know, all scare tactics by the racist white conservatives.
But why is this in obamcare's socialist medical program?
‘‘(H) RESTAURANTS, RETAIL FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS, AND
VENDING MACHINES.—…(x) REGULATIONS.—
‘‘(I) PROPOSED REGULATION.—Not later than 1 year after the date of enactment
of this clause, the Secretary shall promulgate proposed regulations to carry out this
‘‘(II) CONTENTS.—In promulgating regulations, the Secretary shall—‘‘(aa) consider standardization of recipes and methods of preparation, reasonable variation in serving size and formulation of menu items, space on menus and menu boards, inadvertent
human error, training of food service workers, variations in ingredients, and other factors, as the Secretary determines; and ‘‘(bb) specify the format and manner of the nutrient content disclosure requirements under this subclause.
Our government health care is about restaurants?
Did they really say "serving size"?
and "variation in ingredients"?
can this all knowing secretary of the federal government be a good cook?
They even have a national ID in there.
Anyone know anything about this?
