I'm not concerned with the gun portion, because even to me that is a little far fetched. What I am concerned about is the accuracy of the portion in red:

Ted Kennedy Bill Could Send Your Gun Info Into A Massive Federal
Database
–– And you could be forced to spend $13,000 of your own money toward
this effort!

At long last, Teddy Kennedy has partially revealed the health care
system he wants to foist on the whole country –– and it isn't pretty.

It won't be pretty for your pocket book... OR FOR YOUR GUN RIGHTS!

But first, let us explain what TeddyCare is all about.

At the center of the plan is what's called a "universal mandate." What
this means is that you –– and virtually everyone in the country –– will
have to buy as much health insurance as the government demands, and that
insurance plan will actually have to be approved by the government.

If you work for a small business, the business will buy the insurance on
your behalf. But you may be saddled with an enormous part of the cost.
And, if the employer's contribution is too large, you will be fired.


If you fail to buy TeddyCare, as the government orders you to do, the
IRS will fine you, garnish your wages, put a lien on your house, and,
ultimately, put you in prison.

How much will you have to spend on your TeddyCare insurance? Teddy's not
saying.

The portion of your paycheck that will have to be forked over to Teddy's
latest social experiment will be revealed ONLY AFTER THE MASSIVE HEALTH
CARE BILL IS SIGNED INTO LAW.


This should set off alarm bells in your brain, because, for instance,
the average family policy is currently $12,700. "So," proclaims Teddy,
"everyone's going to get a subsidy to pay for this." There's going to
be a "chicken in every pot," and no one's going to have to pay for it.

Yeah, right. If you're a welfare mother, the government will pay for
your TeddyCare, and it would pay for it –– the first time –– by taxing
employer-provided health benefits of working Americans. But if you a
"working Joe" your Kennedy-subsidy will be a microscopic fraction of the
cost of your mandated TeddyCare insurance policy.

Okay, all of this sounds ominous... but why is this a gun issue?

The answer is that TeddyCare will allow radical left Health and Human
Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to determine all of the fine print
in every TeddyCare policy –– which you will be required to buy under
penalty of imprisonment.

Currently, as a result of the stimulus bill and a whole lot of other
factors, the government is rapidly moving in the direction of
computerizing all of your most confidential medical records and putting
them into a federal database.

So remember when your son was asked by his pediatrician about your gun
collection? That would be in the federal database.

Or remember when your wife told her gynecologist that she had regularly
smoked marijuana ten years ago –– thereby potentially barring both her
and you from ever owning a gun again? That would be in the database.

Or if a military veteran complains to his psychiatrist that he's had
emotional stress since coming back to the States, that would be in the
database.

Or remember when gramps was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, thereby making
him a "mental defective" who would have to relinquish his life-long gun
collection? That's in there too.

And, while we are dangerously close to allowing BATFE to troll all of
that information, TeddyCare would allow Sebelius to put EVERYONE'S
private data in a database with a stroke of a pen.

When we say "everyone," we don't mean quite everyone.

Teddy has conveniently excluded Washington bureaucrats from his
TeddyCare mandate.

Also, Teddy and his friends in the media don't want you to hear about
the details until after the bill is passed. That's why they're trying to
slam it through within the next month and a half before anyone's had a
chance to read or debate it.

In fact, the TeddyCare proposal is currently circulating around Capitol
Hill without even a bill number.

ACTION: Urge your two U.S. Senators to oppose Sen. Ted Kennedy's
mandate that will result in the registration of all your gun
information.

Please forward this email to your friends and family and urge them to
contact their Senators as well.

You can go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the
pre-written e-mail message below.


Anyone know the details of TeddyCare? Is this shit for real?

Your employer will have to fire you if their contribution towards your health care plan is too large?

The government will be able to seize your property, garnish your wages and imprison you for failure to enroll in the government health care program?

No one knows what the individual cost of the health care program will be?



Is this alarmist GOA BS, or is this fairly accurate?

Knowing the importance that the current regime and Teddy Bear have placed on universal health care, I would not put it past them to say that you MUST enroll in the program under penalty of prosecution, forfeiture or imprisonment, or for them to be ready to pass a bill where the individual cost of participation has not yet been calculated.

I really don't see that passing, but if it does, it won't be a line in the sand for me, it will be a crevice.

They are pulling out all the stops to start promoting Obama's plan for socialized medicine. ALL THE FUCKING STOPS! ABC News is literally becoming the propaganda outlet for the plan. They are going to have all kind of specials, shows from the White House Press Room and a 9 day advertising promotion conducted by ABC News.

They are gearing up for something and this may be a part of it.
