  • No matter how he tries to word it, it's still a govt takeover and no way it can be deficit neutral.

  • Because WE will be footing the bill. Charlie Rangle and his ways andmeans committee just approved 500 billion in new taxes to cover some of it.

  • It WILL reform health insurance ! It makes it illegal for private companies to enroll any new customers !!
    The day this bill takes effect, no one can change their private insurance. No private insurance company is allowed to enroll new customers after that day.
    A provision in the bill does indeed outlaw private coverage: Under the deceiving title of “Protecting the Choice to Keep Current Coverage", the section titled “Limitation on New Enrollment” states: “… the individual health insurance issuer does not enroll any individual if the coverage goes into effect after the legislation becomes law.”
