To set the stage, remember: NH State Rep Laura Pantelakos (D): “I don’t care about protecting peoples’ Liberty“.
HOUSE BILL 693-FN: AN ACT relative to aid to persons funded by Medicaid and for persons who are uninsured and establishing a special fund
They don’t care about representing any more – only ruling. And NH Rep Peter Schmidt (Democrat / Socialist / Totalitarian-Dover) proves it here. Liberty and Freedom be damned when they go up against the increasingly totalitarian mindset of mainline Democrats. While HB693-FN was voted to be ITL (“Inexpedient to Legislate” – re: killed the bill) on 2/27, Schmidt certainly dropped the Democrat mask and showed us what the NH Democrat Party thinks of someone’s Freedom of choice (the reason for this post). You have none.
Especially in this case for if you are a “health care practitioner”, he will nail your butt for $10 grand if you won’t take a patient that he demands. A couple of snippets from the bill:
I. Except as provided in paragraph II, all health care practitioners and facilities shall provide services for patients funded by Medicaid and uninsured persons.
II. A health care practitioner may opt out of the provisions required by paragraph I by paying an annual fee of $10,000 to the department.
He made it quite clear in this bill that he wanted doctors, nurses, and others to be punished harshly if they didn’t do what he wanted – to the tune of $10,000. That’s a lot of money for a lot of people to have to pay especially when forced, against your will, to do labor that you otherwise wouldn’t. This started with the passage of EMTALA back in 1986 in which Govt forced hospitals to take all comers (and now, go back and take a look at all the hospitals and ER’s that closed just in California). Peter Schmidt wanted to take that down to the individual level: “Nice practice ya got there, doc; shame if anything were to happen to it”. And something would – at $10,000 a shot. And his bill would grow Govt to effectively put its own Guido and Nino on your shoulders to make sure to make something happened if you didn’t obey.
This is what happens when a Party goes Socialist – they have no problem in having Big and Bigger Government take complete control of the economy. And NOTHING says “control” like “you WILL care for people that you otherwise wouldn’t”. Who cares if the price (Medicaid reimbursement) doesn’t pay enough to pay your costs? Who cares if we force you to work for free? The ultimate “people over profits” until the realization hits that there is no money to pay – and not only do the uninsured don’t get helped but no one at that practice gets paid anymore.
I, Peter Schmidt, declare this: I will take your labor. It isn’t “people over profits” – he loves “Government over people“. That’s what Socialism is – making slaves of us all.
Yep, Schmidt demands everyone will work for free. He has no problem in making you either a poorly paid indentured servant (at best) or steal your labor completely. Which, if you really peel all the nice words away and get right down to it, makes you a slave – that is the definition of slavery: stealing someone’s labor.
This is what the Democrat ideology has done – they have no problem in punishing and taking away your Freedom and Liberty if they believe you are “oppressing” someone. Nice way to look at doctors and nurses, dude – they are the “health care oppressors” simply because they don’t want to work for free.

Remember, this is how they view you:
Referencing the new law criminalizing the use of plastic straws, Councilman Jesse Dominguez said, “Unfortunately, common sense is just not common. We have to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”
Which means no choice at all. Not just a government directed economy but a government directed life. Your’s. That’s what makes them happy – ruling, not representing.
