What do you think of these points pertaining to the health care debate?

Senator Mcconnell (KY) made some excellent points (imo) in the debate on health care reform going on...

  • If it was truly the brave, wonderful bill they promised, they wouldn't have to BRIBE people to get them to vote.

  • Speaking of sweet deals made in order to get more support for the health care reform bill...


    “$100 million for an unnamed health care facility at an unnamed university somewhere in the United States — the bill doesn’t say where — and no one will even step forward to claim it.


    I say: hmm craziness..and why the need for all of these bribes if the bill is just sooo good and as Reid says the American people will love it ..and others say..they will love it once they understand it they just do not understand..:eye roll: sounds like kool aid sipping to me....there are more sweet deal bribes Mcconnel mentions that you can read at the link I will provide at the end..

  • Acknowledging that the majority of us Americans do not want THIS bill he says..


    “The final product is a mess — and so is the process that’s brought us here to vote on a bill that the American people overwhelmingly oppose. "


     and here is one of his most excellent points (imo) in the speech...


    “The final product is a mess — and so is the process that’s brought us here to vote on a bill that the American people overwhelmingly oppose.

    “Any challenge of this size and scope has always been dealt with on a bipartisan basis. The senior Senator from Maine made that point at the outset of the debate, and reminded us all how these things have been handled throughout history..

  • “The Social Security Act of 1935 was approved by all but six members of the Senate. The Medicare and Medicaid Acts of 1965 were approved by all but 21. All but eight senators voted for the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

    “Americans believe that on issues of this importance, one party should never be allowed to force its will on the other half of the nation. The proponents of this bill felt differently.

  • But sadly if people vote for the independant, we will still see the dems in control in 2010.

  • IMO~~~~WE should vote on it to make it law since we are the ones most affected by this Healthcare Bill. I am not of the opinion that Washington knows what is best for the people anymore. 2010 will bring new opportunities to clean house and I, for one, will pay very close attention to all candidates and will not be the least bit ashamed to vote outside my party lines.
