    Power to the People or Leading House Democrat condemned Obamacare today.

    A leading House Democrat condemned the Senate’s version of Obamacare today.
    CNN reported:
    Rep. Louise M. Slaughter, a Democrat, represents the 28th Congressional District of New York. Slaughter is the first woman to chair the House Rules Committee and the only microbiologist in Congress.
    The Senate health care bill is not worthy of the historic vote that the House took a month ago.
    Even though the House version is far from perfect, it at least represents a step toward our goal of giving 36 million Americans decent health coverage.
    But under the Senate plan, millions of Americans will be forced into private insurance company plans, which will be subsidized by taxpayers. That alternative will do almost nothing to reform health care but will be a windfall for insurance companies. Is it any surprise that stock prices for some of those insurers are up recently?
    I do not want to subsidize the private insurance market; the whole point of creating a government option is to bring prices down. Insisting on a government mandate to have insurance without a better alternative to the status quo is not true reform
