I have made several posts on the healthcare bill and the taxes that will be levied on the “Working American People” that will raised in order to pay for it.  I have also mentioned  the   general increases in taxes that will need to be raised to help reduce the National Debt!  I have come across two articles that state “Muslims excused from Obama care”.   I have copied the provision below from the Senate and House Bills these articles discuss:

EXEMPTIONS FROM INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

In the case of an individual seeking exemption based on the individual’s status as a
member of an exempt religious sect or division, as a member of a health care sharing ministry, as an Indian,

or as an individual eligible for a hardship exemption, such information as the Secretary shall prescribe.”

Senate Bill, H.R. 3590, pages 273-274

The articles say that according to “various Muslim fatwas they forbid Muslim participation in any sort of healthcare or insurance risk”.  To muslims insurance is considered gambling because it is based on ambiguity.  Obviously, this provision could be applied to other religious groups and not just muslims but I did not want to focus on one group on my blog.  My issue is ” if something like healthcare is so important why start trying to exempt certain groups from participating?”  Because rest assured if certain groups are granted the right not to participate then they will not have to pay any fines are premiums for this but will want to get the benefits of “Obama care”.

These are the types of issues that concerned me when the healthcare bill was passed.  Not the part about pre-existing conditions, covering children up to 24 years old,etc…. But, obscure provisions like this that is a moving target and if any decisions are made in regard to this provision if will be made in favor of the decider which will be the “bloated bureaucracy” that will make all of our healthcare decisions. Once the healthcare provision is entrenched in our society we will be subject to these provisions with no choice but to accept them.

The American People must remain vigilant and stay alert to what is going on so when these “issues pop up” we all can become informed and let our government know we want change.  This is why the American People were not told ahead of time what was in the healthcare bill because if we  knew what is in store for us there is no way this bill would have passed in its present form.  In closing my title refers to the fact that if this healthcare bill stays in its present form then all Americans should participate. Let’s don’t start exempting certain groups right off that bat!!
