    I almost did what stage people call a “spit take” when I read the words “Public Option.” The Public Option is essentially the Exchange.

    Good stuff in here: medical loss ratio rebates, elimination of annual or lifetime limits, no cost-sharing for preventive care, increased penalties for fraud and abuse, money and more authority for enforcement of consumer protection laws, whistle blower protection, lots of transparency issues are addressed,…

    Other than communism, socialism, the wrath of God, and the end of the democracy, capitalism, and maybe the Earth itself, what’s not to like?

    Just heard Cantor say "…there are festivities outside, because people are angry.” Anger makes some people festive. Really? That’s creepy.

    Vote yes on this reconciliation bill. If you do not, we (your employers) will remove you from your positions and replace you with individuals who truly represent the people of the United States of America. This is a promise. You are on notice. This is your probationary period due to your cloture votes, your inability to clear important cabinet appointments, and your general legislative lethargy! You have been hashing and dragging this issue out for over a year. Your actions in the coming days will decide your future with this institution.

    Any one else notice that with this plan(on the comparison page)“4 million fewer people would have employer coverage than under current law”

    You would kind of expect that wouldn’t you? Given the other options available?

    No I would hope that more companies would offer insurance plans considering the posible fine if they don’t. This also means you have to subtract the 4 million from the 30 they promised health care for. 26 million is the result which is about the same as the say the 5% of uninsured Americas they say will be left. So basicly this great plan is to insure 5% of the public. Really that much money for 5%?

    I think you’re getting the wrong impression from the original post. The companies have to offer it, but you don’t won’t be stuck with the Company option. You will have other options. The stat reflects the individual responsibility and the freedom to find your own plan.

    First the details. It’s 32 million so by your arithmetic it would be 28 million. The opposite side of that coin was 23 million nonelderly left uninsured, so by your arithmetic it would become 25 million nonelderly people about a third of which would be illegals. I’m not sure that the CBO’s figures concerning how many people would be added to the insurance rolls didn’t take this into account, though. You may be double counting what needs to be subtracted.

    More entitlements and bureaucracy bought with many trillions in amortized cost! How can we get our Congress critters to stop spending ? We are broke. Every entitlement program run by our government is broke. Congress is buying high ticket items with their high interest, high limit credit card, setting us up for many “lost decades”.

    Add to the above a rather secretive introduction process and hurried debate, and there is little reason to support this abomination. Our government is totally out of control from the looks of this bill and the process of its passage.

    SO WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 2014 TO BENEFITS OF THIS HEALTH CARE REFORM? IN THE MEANTIME WHAT? PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE,BECAUSE DON’T HAVE INSURANCE TO BE TREATED FROM A CANCER OR SOME OTHER ILLNESS?
    WHY IT TAKES SO LONG?

    WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF ENACTMENT

    *Uninsured adults with pre-existing conditions will be able to obtain health coverage through a new program that will expire once new insurance exchanges begin operating in 2014.

    *Insurance companies will be barred from dropping people from coverage when they get sick. Lifetime coverage limits will be eliminated and annual limits are to be restricted.

    *Insurers will be barred from excluding children for coverage because of pre-existing conditions.

    *Medicare drug beneficiaries who fall into the “doughnut hole” coverage gap will get a $250 rebate. The bill eventually closes that gap which currently begins after $2,700 is spent on drugs. Coverage starts again after $6,154 is spent.

    *A tax credit becomes available for some small businesses to help provide coverage for workers.

    *A 10 percent tax on indoor tanning services that use ultraviolet lamps goes into effect on July 1.

    I personally do not see why education finance reform isn’t in its own bill. Unless restricted to medical career education, there is no reason for that to even be in a bill on healthcare. Non healthcare items in these bills smacks of lack of transparancy. It’s a major reason why I do not approve them. If my business plans looked like these bills I would starve. There are so many “need to study” and “to be determined” in essentially a contract by law, that allows for non delivery. Plus we get no say in what is determeined or how it is determeined. Fundamentally, even as written, the bills are not determined with defined text. Also, if education reform is such a good deal, it should stand on it’s own merits.

    There’s an e-mail going around about this bill and people are not liking it. Quoting from said e-mail:

    “So basically this bill creates a National Database of any type of data deemed appropriate by the executive branch of the US Federal Government. This could literally be anything. This could include anything you might have expected to find in an East German Stasi file. All of this data will then be linked to a “Class II implantable device” under your skin. There you have it, just like Lindsey Williams warned us. Forget the national ID card, implantable microchips are coming to a clinic near you no later than 36 months after the bill is signed into law.”

    Food for thought: If you have to bury something like this in a bill, there’s good reason to believe the people are being deceived yet again. Because if you had nothing to hide, make it separate bill and tell people what the government is really up to and why you want to do this specifically.

    I vote NO.

    @ZAPEM:

    How does this bill violate the Constitution? Could you please point out text in the bill and the text in the Constitution that it contradicts?

    Thank you!

    We need a system focusing more on rewards for people who take care of themselves rather than bailing out people who don’t.
