    Affordable Health Care Insurance

    That is the key word here.

    I wonder if anyone really knows what this bill is about....what are the benefits.

    They started out talking about Universal Health Care...but they never use that anymore.

    Now it's affordable health care. Affordable to whom? What do they think is affordable?

    Doesn't sound like it's gonna be free does it. I wonder how many here actually think the bill is going to pay for your health care?

    All of the horse-trading and political manuvering is just who will be exempt from whatever rules and regulations come out of it.

    Does anyone here realize that this is a bill that makes not having health insurance illegal?

    So far it's a tax-increase bill.

    And they want to gut Medicare as well.

    So....the big secret is that they will raise our taxes mostly in hidden ways all over the place and they're gonna eliminate Senior's medical coverage.

    The Dems ran on Universal Health Care and now it's just what they think is Affordable Insurance. What may be affordable to someone earning $170k may not be affordable for someone making $20k.

    I'll bet there's some authoritarian snoop shit in that bill that'd make your average lefty wackaloon civil-libertarian-of-convenience mess their pants, if the republicans passed this swill on a strictly party-line vote.

    When I inform people of that, they are shocked.

    I am afraid that not enough people cared or paid any attention to this unconstitutional bill. The biggest and most destructive bill I have ever had the displeasure and pain of paying attention to. This bill literally made me cry recently. I realize what it means

    To date, it is the largest tax increase Americans have ever seen....

    To date, it is the most deceitful legislation to come from either party....

    1. Makes criminals of middle class families that can't afford health care.
    2. Rations care to those who need it most.
    3. Gives the insurance companies more power.
    4. Reduces incentives to create better treatments and medicines.
    5. Speeds up the financial collapse of America.
    6. Places the future of the Democratic party on the success of one program.

    That's about the only thing I know about this bill, people will be fined if they do not have health insurance, they will pay a tax penalty. I also know that nothing will kick in for 4-5 years but we all are going to start paying for it now in higher taxes from everything to soda pop to gasoline. Remember, he won't raise taxes on anyone making less than 250,000 per year, well that just went out the door because even if it's not a payroll tax, you are gonna pay and pay and pay on everything else.

    I think that Harry Reid and maybe a couple of others actually know most of the details in this bill, but as for the others, they are clueless. It's going to take time to study and the longer it takes the more we all will find out, but get ready to see many more bribes going on here. Washington is full of politicians who are nothing more than paid whores.

    It has three historically significant things going for it.

    1 - The majority of Americans don't want it.
    2 - It has no bi-partisan support.
    3 - It is the most expensive piece of legislation ever.

    And, Maple, you give way too much credit to Reid if you think even he has a clue as to exactly what he's selling.

    I have not read the bill but I will bet it diverts tax dollars to private insurance companies and provides slight if any savings or benefits to users.

    Thank you, and I take that credit back, he deserves NONE. They sure did not know what was in that 787 billion dollar stimulus bill they passed without reading it first, why would I expect them to be any different with this peice of crap.
