  • Another question would be ..DID THEY READ IT? lol

  • Yeah, going cross-eyed! It is a bunch of "in sec 2 paragraph 3 striking the word and, and inserting the word also". It is loopy BS ya know a gazillion amendments to previous legislation that has NOTHING to do with health care. Like an amendment to send funds to construct irrigation systems on Indian reservations.... can anyone tell me what the heck that has to do with health care reform. I don't care that they wanna do that but no reason to put it in this bill.

  • Gawd, that makes me mad, Crissy. They will once again load the bill with all sorts of crap and pet projects that have nothing to do with health care, vote on it without reading it, and then we will have to pay for it for decades to come. *sigh*

  • If you use opencongress you can opt to show the revisions or turn them off. It can make all those circular references a lot easier to follow.

  • It doesn't matter if we read it or not, it will be pushed through because we don't matter to this admin. The majority has spoken, we don't want it but they are hellbent on destroying our country. It hasn't even passed yet & this week, they are already changing 2 major important preventative health tests for women. If these tests are so bad for us, how come we are just now hearing this? Why did the gov't ever approve & advocate their use in the 1st pace? Because they aren't going to pay for them & many of us are going to die, it won't be just a few ins. co's discriminating anymore; we'll ALL be discriminated against because we are women. Okay, so younger women don't have as much incidence, that is wonderful but without mammograms, none of us will have the opportunity for early detection, we won't know, until it is too late, so we die. Same goes for pap smears, why are we regressing? It's CHEAPER for the gov't, if we die... :(
