Oklahoma Gets Millions in Fed Dollars for Meeting Major Milestone of the Health Care Reform Act

This is another shell game being played on us  just like  what is being done with the The Real ID Act.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 made up the health care reform of 2010.

This Health Care Reform is  frequently referred to as “Obamacare” something Governor Fallin seems to be passionately opposed to;

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin seeks to expedite review of health care challenge

Feb. 11, 2011

Gov. Mary Fallin says she’s joined 28 other Republican governors who sent a letter to President Obama asking him to direct the Department of Justice to expedite the appeals process of the pending state lawsuits against the federal health care bill  Read more

And yet the Oklahoma Governor just accepted federal funding to develop a key portion (in fact the most disturbing part in my opinion) of Health Care Reform-the information technology infrastructure that will allow wide-scale sharing of your  health information.  You cannot opt out of this system if your state (like Oklahoma) chooses to implement it.

OVERNIGHT HEALTH: Reform implementation continues

Feb 16, 2011

HHS doles out exchange grants: As Republicans look to defund the healthcare reform law, the health department awarded $241 million in grants to six states and a New England consortium to develop information technology infrastructure for exchanges created by the healthcare overhaul. The so-called “early innovator” grants were awarded to Kansas, Maryland, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Wisconsin and the New England group.

Is anyone paying any attention?
