Because it is a bad bill. Do the tort reform, open up the restriction of insurance trade across state lines and let me by my policy from Montana if I want (competitive free market), and use the unused $500 million of stimulus money to insure the 2.5 million truly uninsured. (Figure from Betsy McCaughey. Not the inflated figure which includes those that choose not to sign on to company offered because they may have to pay part of the premium or those who qualify for medicaid but choose not to.)
Don't pass a bill for the government to have one more say over my life or give me one more program to have to work even harder and longer to help pay for. I don't work to fund my government .

Because all the Democrats want is control and they also want the Republicans to hand it over on a silver platter, with their blessings. Not going to happen.
I would hope that the only thing Republicans would be interested in would be a bill that doesn't have government running the final product. Of course, I say 'I would hope' because I don't think I trust anyone in DC.

The Uber Dems dont want REFORM...they want THEIR agenda and they dont care whose throat they have to shove it down! My FAVE thing so far is the one dem that said (basically) If the repubs dont get on board and do what we want we are going to do it anyway. Now tell me, WHY IN THE H*LL ANYONE would want to even TRY and work out a compromise with someone (many people) like THAT? Whats the point?
