    Why do we even have Govt involved in health care in the first place? We do not need Govt enforced healthcare or Govt controlled healthcare!!!!

    This bill needs to have a greater influence in Congress. It is so much simpler than the the Democrat’s bill and it involves cutting the bureaucracy and red tape to involve a more closer and better focus on patient care: the way health care is supposed to be. Hurray for the Republicans!!!!

    I’m ready to look at alternatives to the Democratic plan, but I can’t support any bill that puts restrictions on abortion funding. A better solution would be to make abortion support elective, and let each individual choose whether they want some of their tax dollars to go for abortions. Since abortion spending only amounts to 0.034% of overall health spending, there shouldn’t be a problem ensuring sufficient funding from those who are not opposed to abortion.

    How would you get around the Hyde Amendment (passed in 1976) which bars federal tax dollars from being used to fund abortion? Only four states use state tax dollars to fund abortion voluntarily, and a handful more only under a court’s order.
