    Don’t let any Congressman who voted for this bill forget that he will be voted out of office (that includes Pelosi, Reid, Dodd and all of them).

    Wake UP VOTERS! There will be no private insurance carriers once public option is in place. Employers won’t be able to maintain competitive pricing to compete against public option! All this is planned by the Democrats.

    OBAMA lied when he said “No abortions will be in bill, No illegals in bill, You can keep your private insurance”. ALL LIES!

    Regardless of the “contents” of this, or any other proposed legislation, is there no thought given to WHY IS THIS SO URGENT? Any legislation that is this important, and this highly debated, should not be rushed (remember the last few times there was and “urgent” need?). No plan is a noble plan if it cannot stand the test of thoughtful reflection without urgency! In fact, the actions of the elected are the opposite of noble. The elected continue to demonstrate they are not using an ounce of integrity with respect to the process or the fiscal accountability for their actions. I will answer this recklessness in the upcoming elections. I hope you all will too. Because, regardless of what the bill is supposed to accomplish, it will be forever tainted by the process that was used to pass it.

    Gov. Health Care will fall apart so be ready for it. And if you are for the Gov. Health Care and it fails don’t cry.

    Instead of trying to push this threw fast, why not take a few years to ensure all loop holes and problems.

    Universal healthcare and a robust public option are absolutely essential to our future and this bill is a huge step forward for this country. Given the number of paranoids using this Web site, I think there should be no doubt that healthcare in this country is broken – most of these people should at least be medicated and might benefit greatly from a few weeks under supervision at some fine hospital. Until recently, I could never have imagined that such a small, far-right minority of confused and phobic semi-literates could be so incredibly vocal (and so willing to spew such vile nonsense so publicly). It’s embarrassing, frankly.

    Seriously…back up that its “such a small, far-right minority of confused and phobic semi-literates”. I mean either back up that its a small number or by all means continue to spew your nonsensical emotional frustrations about as though they were some type of factual analysis of the situation.

    When congress votes for the health care bill it should include all Americans and all of congress and the president should also be included in the bill. It is not fair that the ones voting the bill in has better coverage then the American people.

    Yeah, I know right?! I mean, they have national health care, provided at military hospitals, staffed by people who serve our nation as doctors for less money than they could make in the private sector because they care about helping people, not their paycheck. I mean, SHOULDN’T WE ALL HAVE ACCESS TO THAT?

    In case you didn’t catch it, I am saying they have publicly managed health care, same as the military, and you don’t. Cause you have an insurance company.

  • tmckone11 11/05/2009 2:01pm

    I have neither the time or the patience to read such a pathetic document. If I read at 100 pages/hour(superman speed) it would take me half of a work week to read this. So much for 72 hours before a vote for Americans to read this. I just want to know if these nut cases are serious. They can not truly believe this bill protects freedom and will help free Americans from the high premium insurance companies. My advice to anyone trying to enter the medical field is to try another profession. If Pelosi and Obama get their way doctor’s will make as much as school teachers because they will all work for the government.

    So I say pass this bill! Then go to medical school. Work hard, study hard, and save lives. In the end you will get compensated the same as someone with 4 months of vacation.

  • 2010RSN 11/06/2009 2:10am

    Will the final language of the health care bill be posted online for 72 hours before bringing the bill to a vote on the House floor? Nancy Pelosi’s stated “absolutely” let’s see how she turns this around. I don’t trust anything she says but we’ll see….

    Pelosi Breaks Pledge to Put Final Health Care Bill Online for 72 Hours Before Vote
    On September 24, Speaker Nancy Pelosi told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that she was “absolutely” committed to putting the text of the final House bill online for 72 hours before the House votes:
    TWS: Madam Speaker, do you support the measure to put the final House bill online for 72 hours before it’s voted on at the very end?
    PELOSI: Absolutely. Without question.

    John Dingell needs to join his father. In this case, term limits means funerals.

  • tmckone11 11/06/2009 9:25am

    Unemployment at 10.2%, highest since our last recession in 1983. Obama promised if we didn’t pass stimulus bill unemployment would reach 9%. He also promised if we did pass the bill it wouldn’t go higher than 8%. How many lies do we have to hear before the ignorant people in America actually stop believing a word that comes out of Obama’s filthy mouth? This health care bill will work as well as the stimulus and bankrupt more and more Americans.

  • VoteNoDem2010 11/08/2009 3:48am

    This is how it will begin. “Socialism” Controlling our health care opens the door for many more intrusions of our freedoms. What will they takeover next????

  • jharding 11/09/2009 4:12am

    Here’s what happens when the “ruling class” doesn’t listen to the working class. They pass a bill that doesn’t affect them apart from lining pockets of their lobbyists, in turn filling their election campaign coffers. The Senate has a similar margin of approval/disapproval, but I believe it’s in the opposite direction. Let’s keep on our Senators and pressure them to shut this abomination down while there’s still a chance. SS and Medicare are PRIME examples of what kind of corrupt mess the Government is capable of creating.

  • bkrueg 11/09/2009 6:28am

    President Obama, by the way, did not run for President on a platform that health-care reform contains a public option. He simply proposed that every American should have access to affordable health care, similar to the plan available to members of Congress.

  • mustangP51 11/12/2009 4:38pm

    I’ve been reading through some of the comments, and sorry if this is a repeat but is anyone talking about the lack of compensation the government pays to hospitals? I have an example, my father is retired military and therefore has tricare prime. when he went to the hospital for blood work tricare only reimbursed them $40! Who do you think picks up the slack for the lack of reimbursements?!? PRIVATE PLANS!!! Now I know the public option states that they are only going to reimburse at the medicare rate, so it not only no longer takes this problem of hospitals picking up the governments slack it exacerbates it.

  • CuriousKiss 11/19/2009 11:24am

    Anyone that supports a government-run healthcare bill is out of their bloody mind. The government should NOT be running anything in a free-marketplace. They SUCK at running what they have already tried to run – ALL THE EVIDENCE IS THERE!!! Don’t be duped!

    Yeah the health care plan is a joke. You want to make health care cheaper? All you have to do is make it unconstitutional for people to sue for malpractice unless it caused permanent damage to life limb or eyesight. Half of healthcare costs go right to insurance companies that cover malpractice law suits. If you have surgery on your heart, and now you cant feel your pinky, oh well, at least your still alive, thats my piece. Governments are there to serve the people, not to be served by the people.

    So you want Congress to add an amendment to the Constitution so that people can’t sue hospitals and doctors? Interesting. I agree that there needs to be tort reform because people sue over the stupidest things and that includes our public schools as well. However, if it is against a municipality in CT, the plaintiff has to ask for permission to sue setting a higher standard. That might be one way to do it and also cap the rewards. I believe Bush pushed for tort reform, but it fell through. I wonder how much the taxpayers pay for people who have absolutely no insurance who use hospitals as their primary physician.

    I will support this bill, if and only if (iff), it contains a strong broadly available Public Option – something like a Medicare for all (citizen’s choice).

    RATIONING: Elderly question flu shot controls

    65 and older face H1N1 vaccine limits

    Two months after H1N1 flu vaccine was first distributed to public health districts around the country, people 65 and older with serious medical conditions still can’t get vaccinated.
    Public health authorities admit they have been inundated with calls from the elderly who want to know when they can receive vaccinations.
    Many seniors have called the Review-Journal to complain. Some refrain from giving their names because they fear their complaints could cause their Social Security benefits to be cut off.

  • luckydog64 12/07/2009 4:46am

    Every Senator and Congressman knows the quickest and most effective way to START reducing the high costs of medical care is TORT REFORM, but it will never happen because of the billions of dollars the current legal system contributes to their re-election campaigns. Our only hope is to throw out all of those people who pretend to represent us in Washington, and start with a new group who truly represent us. When votes can be bought, as evidenced by the 300 million promised to Louisiana Senator Landrieu to BUY her vote, and the 10 BILLION promised to the unions to restore money that they “mis-appropriated” from the union’s retirement fund, in order to assure support by big labor, then they can buy anything. They must be voted out of office. The first priority with the new group should be TERM LIMITS,so they will continue to represent us. Tied to term limits should be ELECTION REFORM, so that you don’t have to be a multi-millionaire, or the puppet of the rich, in order to be elected.

  • bowriter 12/17/2009 9:14am

    See Sweden for a perfect model of health care.

  • datpino7 12/21/2009 10:33am

    It is clear the Democrats who are voting for the health care bill do not have the American public’s interests in mind. To release a party line vote the is not only controversial from a logical standpoint, but also HIGHLY opposed by the public is a slap in every American’s face. DO NOT LET THESE COOKS GET AWAY WITH THIS INSULT! Vote every sitting Democrat who votes yes on this bill out. Speak with your strongest asset as a citizen of America, your vote. The Fed has continually only sought approval and benefit for special interest groups. Issues that are highly controversial IE Bail outs, TARP, Health Care, are pushed through without any regard for public opinion. I don’t care if you fill the seats of these terrible self serving democrats with other democrats as long as they represent the better for America. Party lines are only a tool to manipulate you further. There are few in office that actually care for anyone but themselves. Do your part. Remove the cancer of our society

  • xander1776 01/03/2010 7:06am

    HR3200 better have a state out or you have again broken the 10th amendment. These are not optional rules; these are rules our founding fathers enacted to make sure you keep the people first and as warning to the people when a government is no longer serving its people.

    The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution’s principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states by the constitution of the United States are reserved to the states or the people.” Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right."
  • xander1776 01/03/2010 7:15am

    This would be an open and closed case of Forced participation or commandeering if passed with out a state option to opt out, Be warned it will go to the supreme court if you try to force us to do this and if the supreme court fails the people it will again fall to the people to correct this problem as it always has in times of great peril. This is not to even mention how many senators took bribes for their states to vote for this, Reform Is not FORCED

    I am starting to thing we are never going to get over this administrations blunders, Whether you’re for or against…fact is there’s got to be a problem if we can’t stop talking about the dreaded “Health Bill”. I found this interesting though…take a look http://ketiva.com/Politics_and_Government/health_care_bill_extend_coverage_to_millions_while_costs_rocket.html
