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%?

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

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

Also, as I review the bill’s contents I’m baffled to find $255,000,000 of tax money dedicated to colleges based on the skin color of their students. Is this a health reform bill or an affirmative action bill? Funny that you hear nothing about this content when Obama speaks on television.

You’re right, the opinion here doesn’t represent the electorate. It represents people who have taken the time to look for/at the actual bill, and therefore have a much better idea of what’s actually in it rather than what’s merely advertised by its proponents on television. So if the support level is even lower here than at large, what does that tell you?

It’s certainly convenient to dismiss the bill’s opposition as ignorant loonies with half-baked opinions, but there are plenty of informed people against it for well-supported reasons if you truly care to know. Financial burden (amidst a recession and growing national debt) is one big reason, and this concern was succinctly justified in a NY Times op-ed yesterday:

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.

That’s this crowd. Fortunately, it doesn’t reflect the electorate. Don’t expect much. Most of this crowd would fall under the “it goes too far” sentiment, because the whole idea of it is “unconstitutional” or “anti-capitalism” or just “un-American.”

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?

Have you read the Constitution?
Is the government the answer to all?
Simple and common sense solutions that are not intrusive on our liberty is the answer not all encompassing government.

There is no justification for this bill. It is a scare tactic by the Democrats to limit the checks and balances provided by the Constitution. There is NO way as 2,000 page document can only be debated in 20 hours, have no amendments to it, and attempt to pass Congress. How long will we let our representatives in Washington destroy the freedoms and rights that are protected in this nation?

Not allowing for a complete review, vote and introduction of additional points of view limmits the future benefits to Americans. It took years for our Founding Fathers to finally come up with a government plan that we should cherish more than we do today. This reconciliation bill is another form of political manuevaring, payback, and hijacking of America by corrupt individuals who care more about themselves than the country as a whole. It ruined Rome centuries ago, this style of politics will ruin our democracy too. It needs to stop. I thought government was going to be clear, concise, without earmarks, special treatments would be what the people WANT!!! Keeping Freedom Free!!!

25% support right now. Why? Does it go too far, or not far enough?
