Don’t want to become a lifelong statistic of the Democrat Party’s Affordable Care Act? The Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) has created an ObamaCare Exchange Opt-Out form which can be emailed directly to the federal Healthcare.gov website.
“I declare that I am opting out of any and all participation in the national Obamacare Exchange system.”
And the stated reasons should cause every American to question both the legitimacy of the Affordable Care Act and the true intent of its authors.
It begins with the question of privacy:
“Without my consent, the Exchange will gather significant private data about my family and I, “under penalty of perjury,” and share that data online through the ‘Federal Data Services Hub’ with federal agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), Dept. of Health & Human Services (HHS), and Social Services Administration (SSA).”
What possible, legitimate use could the Department of Homeland Security have for the personal medical records of the American people?
“Thanks to the collection and distribution of personal data to the IRS, ObamaCare Exchanges …will…compel individuals and employers to purchase only government-approved insurance.”
Subsidies and tax credits will be issued only by the IRS and be made available only to those who enroll in ObamaCare through an ObamaCare exchange. Such an arrangement makes the competitive pricing of private healthcare insurance impossible. CCHF describes this as “…a ‘Coercive Attack on Free Market Medical Care’: Using the bait of federal subsidies and Medicaid, the Exchange is designed to entrap individuals in the Exchange and never let them out!”
The Opt-Out form concludes with:
“The national Exchange system is not a “marketplace” to buy health insurance. It is a federal command and control center that employs the states to abuse individual privacy and economic freedom with the false promise of government provided “health care.”
“Therefore, I am opting out of the PPACA’s intrusive government-run Exchange.”

Thus far, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has refused to release the number of individuals who have enrolled in ObamaCare since the “opening day” of October 1st. This can only mean the numbers are too high to easily track, or are an embarrassment for the Obama Regime. Let’s keep them an embarrassment and defeat ObamaCare by Opting Out.
