Rand Paul claims Obamacare will include diagnostic codes for 'injuries sustained from a turtle, walking into a lamppost and burning water skisIn a little-noticed speech to the Iowa Republican Party this month, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul mocked President Obama's signature health care overhaul, noting the 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes doctors will have to use in order to inform the government about injuries sustained by Americans.

Restore America’s Voice…To Save the Nation
We believe the nation is in trouble, even mortal danger. Our fortunes have fallen and this generation cannot—for the first time since the dark beginning of the Second World War—promise the next generation—our children-- that their lives will be more prosperous than ours. The “experts” we have trusted the nation to have undermined our economy and our prospects for recovery, frustrated development of natural resources that could help, plundered Social Security, exploded borrowing and debt and left our borders unprotected while enriching themselves and advancing their own ambitions. Truth is seldom heard from Washington and faithful public service is more and more rare. We believe the nation’s future is lost along with our grand experiment in personal liberty until and unless We, The People, forcefully reassert our power both during and in-between elections. Our active management as a citizen force that cannot be denied is needed to save the nation…from our own politicians. Our grassroots advocacy and pressure campaigns will rely on hardball democracy tactics to create respect for the will of the people and fear of frustrating that will.
Here is our agenda to begin repair of the United States of America:
Demand Congress Audit Every Federal Agency
In yet another example of bureaucratic corruption, we see that the General Services Administration hosted an unbelievably offensive, over the top, lavish training conference for 300 GSA workers at a casino spa hotel near Las Vegas in 2010. The cost of the GSA Vegas BLOWOUT exceeded $830,000! A bill that was footed by you and your fellow American taxpayers.Demand Federal Agency Audits
Repeal ObamaCare Now
It’s a disaster and it was enacted over the objections of a majority of Americans. It forces citizens to buy services—an unprecedented expansion of federal power. It will lead to higher costs, long waits for care and rationing of services. Doctors won’t accept Medicare patients and many will quit the profession.Call to Action
A Balanced Budget Amendment
Washington is incapable of responsible borrowing and spending. They have spent against borrowing all the available wealth of the current generation, all of the possible wealth of the following generation and are working on the future earnings of our grandchildren.Call to Action
Eliminate Congressional Corruption
Congress has exempted itself from nearly every law citizens are obligated to obey. This is the opposite of a nation of equals under the law. Members of Congress have enriched themselves using insider knowledge of legislation and regulatory actions as well as confidential briefings by Treasury officials.Call to Action
Establish a Rational Energy Policy
After studying the Keystone pipeline since 2008, the Obama Administration denied a permit bringing needed oil from Canada to the United States. Drilling permits domestically and advances in domestic energy production involving abundant coal, natural gas and petroleum have been slowed down to the point of absurdity in the name of environmental protection.Call to Action
Fundamental Tax Reform
The federal tax system is a nightmare of complexity that is sapping the strength of the nation while enriching tax lobbyists and Members of Congress. Completion of tax paperwork itself costs businesses and taxpayers nearly half a trillion dollars a year—before taxes are paid.Call to Action
