1. NEW GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY BAD
2. LIMITING INCOME OF MEDICAL PEOPLE BAD
3. PORTABILITY GOOD
4. INS CO'S COMPETING ALL OVER INSTEAD OF BEING LIMITED BY STATE GOOD
5. TORT REFORM GOOD
6. FRAUD AND ABUSE SAVINGS. WHY HASN'T THAT ALREADY HAPPENED?
7. PENALIZE NON-PARTICIPANTS BAD BAD
9. LIMITS ON THE NUMBER OF MEDICAL SCHOOL GRADUATES BAD
10. WHY NOT TWEAK THE LAWS INSTEAD OF CREATING BIGGER GOVERNMENT?
11. EVERY CONGRESSMAN, SENATOR AND ANY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES MUST BE MANDATED TO PARTICIPATE FULLY JUST AS THE REST OF US.
12. $500 BILLION IN MEDICARE CUTS. BAD
ALL OF THESE ISSUES OUGHT TO BE CONSIDERED IN MAKING THE ADJUSTMENTS.
The above are only the items I can think of off hand. However, there are other matters we should also address in the bill before the House.
The House bill is almost 2000 pages long filled with all kinds of legalize Why was it hammered together in closed committee sessions? What happened to the promised transparency? Why was an amendment to forbid payments to illegals voted down? Why was an amendment to forbid payments for abortions voted down? Why has Pelosi not allowed amendments from the floor of the House? We never voted for government by fiat!
Why are we asked to vote on a 2000 page law in a week's time? Why can't this be discussed amongst the public before it is voted on by our representatives? A cursory review of this bill tells anybody with half a brain that we are producing a new government bureaucracy and, it like all government estimates, will cost the American taxpayer and our progeny immensely more than the fake figures given by the House.
We must let our politicians know that they will not stay in office if they pass this bill without our consent. Every politician who favors this should be voted out no matter how good they are. This bill will be on the backs of future Americans for generations to come, Don't we have a responsibility to them, also?
