It’s finally arrived! Nancy Pelosi’s dream plan for a government-run health care system, all 1,990 pages of it.
Stay tuned as we wade through this monstrosity to find out just exactly how bad we’re going to be screwed over by this government takeover of our life and death decisions. The previously released version, HR 3200, was only 1,100 pages and most of our elected officials couldn’t find the time to read that bill. There’s little doubt they’ll find time in their schedules to read Pelosi’s bill that’s almost twice as long!
So once again, it will be up to us to point out the deficiencies in their plan for our future!
We do know for certain it contains the dreaded “public option” that is certain to run private insurance plans out of the market, but we’ll have to explore the details to see just how bad it’s going to be.
Some good news though…it appears Democrats in the Senate and House differ on approaches to pay the nearly $1 trillion cost of the bill. We’re also hearing some Democrats from more conservative districts promising not to vote for any bill with a government-run insurance plan. Hopefully that will help stall the bill’s progression through Congress long enough for its problems to be exposed.
In the coming days, look for more details of the Democrats’ plan to increase government control of our health care system!
