  • Yes I just made a comment about that in the salt question. They are going to legislate what we can eat.

    That's right, the Obama-Pelosicare....is not about governing, it's about control!

    Besides this is PELOSI'S little monologue. Maybe you haven't noticed, but not everyone in her OWN party agrees with her!!

  • Or, when they say that the people are being denied coverage by the insurance company; yet Sean Hannity discussed today that he researched which insurance company denies the most claims/procedures/coverage. Do you know who denies the most? The federal government!!!!!!!! Yes, Medicare/Medicaid has the highest percentage of denied claims/procedures/coverage. The same government that is going to make our health care better. If they would pay the doctors at a fair rate as the insurance companies do, the cost wouldn't be so high. We have to make up the difference between the charges and the write-off required by the government.

    Those who are against the bill want a single payer or public option.

  • The SALT issue was in New York...one guy wants to ban salt in restaurants and it had nothing to do with the Federal Government. Good grief. The Government is not going to legislate what we eat. They make recommendations. Relax,OK?
