All day people have been saying others are lying about what's in the health care bill, or spreading their own lies instead. Within five minutes, just about every single time, someone has posted links to verifiable sources like the congressional web pages or neutral news articles and web sites that show the original statements are in fact true or disprove the ignorant claims like pre existing care starts this year for adults, or that there is no fine for non-payment of insurance.
Why would you make these kind of statements without checking their accuracy BEFORE you post them? Do you like looking ignorant and being proven wrong? It takes all of 30 seconds to Google something and confirm it before you type it. Why don't you bother? Some of the lies spread here lately are disgusting, giving false hope to desperate people based on what you think you remember. Why?

beckorc~ IMMEDIATE HELP FOR THE UNINSURED UNTIL EXCHANGE IS AVAILABLE (INTERIM HIGH-RISK POOL)--
I believe that was in the House bill (Oct 2009).. They passed the Senate Version yesterday.

After reading large parts of the bill, it's not clear what is true or what is not. Much of it is obtuse, and parts seem to contradict each other.

Beck, I stand corrected... I have read too many versions... Pre exsisting conditions would be able to apply for some assistance in their care via government programs, not through the private insurance market. $5 billion in federal support for a new program to provide affordable coverage for those who qualify...
