Have you read the health care bill?

I know its long. But have you read at least parts of it? Anyone have a link to the bill that just passed the House?

  • Yes, I have. It's a horrible idea forced on people against their will. One of our local representatives ended his career yesterday by changing his vote. Shame he's the next district over so I can't vote against him personally, but facebook is flooded with friends and neighbors on that side of the line who want blood.

  • Here's a better question, have the people that voted on this monstrosity read it?? The answer is NO!

  • I agree with :24. If your representative didn't read the bill, they should lose their jobs. This is what they are there to do. They should be completely aware of the wording of the laws that they are responsible for passing. And this goes for representatives on both sides of the aisle.

  • I haven't and neither did the effers who passed it. We not live in the United Socialized States of America.

  • It is very difficult to read because it is written in legal and technical terms- even those who specialize in reading this type of thing have to go through it carefully. It points back to a lot of previous laws and rules... Though the general outlines can be read, but there is a lot of ambiguity to what is stated. Go to OpenCongress.Org to be able to read the bill as it stands.
