    Republican Plan includes:

    1. Coverage can be denied for the following "pre-existing" conditions:

    asthma, allergies, tonsillectomy, back conditions, adenoidectomy, hemorrhoids or hemorrhoidectomy, disorders of the reproductive system, hysterectomy, hernia, gall stones or kidney stones, any condition of the breast including having had a mammogram regardless of the results, and any condition of the prostate

    2. If a person becomes sick and can no longer pay premiums, coverage can be ended to keep costs down for others not sick.

    3. No clause to cover children. They do not work. They do not need coverage.

    4. Parents are no longer allowed to add their children to their health care plan while those children attend college or have passed 18 years of age.

    5. An amendment to "protect marriage" will be back on the table.

    6. A bill to repeal the "don't ask" part of "don't ask, don't tell".

    7. Government intervention to end all abortions, including rape and incest.

    8. A trillion-dollar tax cut for millionaires and billionaires.

    9. Further deregulation of Wall Street.

    10. Privatizing Social Security.

    11. Ending Medicare and Medicaid.

    12. Freedom of religion doesn't mean freedom from religion. Bill to include mandatory teacher led prayers in public schools.

    13. A change in science curriculum to include the possibility of "occult" intervention.

    14. An amendment to strip Hispanic children of their citizenship.

    There you go. I think I've covered most of what they will present.

    You posted what they want. Politicians never come right out and say what they want.
    And very very few do what they priomise.

    It's probably legit because I know rdean would never just copy-paste partisan crap from someones' blog.

    Nope.

    It certainly seems believable for the rightwing to do that, but they will never have the seats to pass Obamas veto, unless he joins them. At best we will see the Party of No continue their 18 years of assault against America.
