    Well, here we go again guys, remember the TRANSPERENCY Obama promised, remember the no stimulus stimulus bill that was signed before ANYONE had a chance to read it. Remember a week later after the bill was signed into law, the Failed AIG bonuses that were written into the plan. Chris Dodd with egg all over his face. Had any of these idiots read the bill they would have seen the bonuses. The democratic senate voted today to post a summary of the health care bill instead of the entire document, they say in order not to confuse us dummies that voted them in there. Do you trust that?? because I sure as hell don't. The republicans voted against this and want FULL DISCLOSURE. Time to e-mail your senators?? I already did.

    SO they aren't going to put the full version out for public consumption at all? We wont have access to the full language of the new bill?

    Is that what is going on?

    Better warm up the tar and get the feathers out.

    i don't want the bill, i want the explanation of each part of the bill....a summary and what it will cost.

    the legal language of the bill won't tell us crap, in many areas...referring to the usc112 act line A subsection 2, 5th paragraph, replacing the word ''care'' with ''health care''...

    i don't want to see that crap!

    i want to KNOW what this bill does, how will it reduce the cost of MY HEALTH CARE insurance and that of fellow citizens, how will it insure more people and at what estimated cost....

    but please do NOT give me a thousand pages of mumbo jumbo!

    Who was it again, who oh-so semi-famously chastised his opponents with the jab of "just words" :rolleyes:

    A brief synopsis: It won't.....Other than get the hell out of the way (an option that is completely off the table in this bill), nothing gubmint does ever makes anything less costly.

    I'd rather have the 1000 pages and 2 notebooks and a week to go through it. I just dont trust the government to give me a FULL summary.

    The basic proposal is 223 pages. It's all there for anyone to see at the link. Complete transparency.
