OpenCongress Summary

This is the House Democrats’ big health care reform bill. Broadly, it seeks to expand health care coverage to the approximately 40 million Americans who are currently uninsured by lowering the cost of health care and making the system more efficient. To that end, it includes a new government-run insurance plan to compete with the private companies, a requirement that all Americans have health insurance, a prohibition on denying coverage because of pre-existing conditions and, to pay for it all, a surtax on households with an income above $350,000. A more detailed summary of the bill by the House Committee on Education and Labor can be read here (four-page .pdf).

  1. I’m reading the healthcare bill (h.r.3200) and am detailing what it actually says at http://www.FaithfulinPrayer.wordpress.com.
    I’ve also included over there the Stephen Fraser MD email which has numerous erroneous information in it. For each point, I’ve shown what the bill actually says.
    I’m not particularly for this bill, but I also hate for wrong information to be spread about. Come see what it says.

  2. These people may pass this bill but payback is a BITCH. When election time rolls around remember the names and vote them OUT OF OFFICE!!! If you truly feel these people are NOT representing your wishes then do something about it.
    I myself am going to make a list of all in favor of this and WILL get my payback.

  3. We need Obama out of office or to render him useless…which mean we have to vote OUT the LIBERALS such as Rangel, Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, shumer, McCain (yes, he’s a RINO and thus a lib), etc…we need real conservatives in congress that will STOP this madman Obama from doing any more harm to America…VOTE THESE PEOPLE OUT!!!!

    • The health care debate reminds me of when Clinton held up that card and touted that all Americans would have healthcare. I often wonder if President Obama is so grandiose that he thinks he could sell a plan that even the Clintons were unable to push on the American People. The Salesman in chief is failing abysmally as Groups like Tea Party Patriots and other groups have grown such that even the likes of the Liberal Moveon.org can’t compete. It appears to be a new day, when citizens are tired of an impotent congress and are speaking out! Thanks for your comments

  4. WE DO NOT WANT THIS VERY CONTROLLING HEALTHCARE BILL–AND BE COUNSELED ABOUT END OF LIFE PROCEDURES OR TELLING US TO TAKE A PILL INSTEAD OF A PROCEDURE–WOULD YOU?????? OH, I FORGOT, YOU WILL NOT BE COVERED UNDER THIS PLAN, AND GUESS WHAT? WE WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR YOU TO HAVE YOUR OWN, SPECIAL POLICY. WHO DO YOU PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE–YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR YOU–WHAT PART OF THIS DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND????READ MY LIPS–NO!!!!!NO!!!!!NO!!!!

    • Thanks for your comments. It seems that every time post an article, good or bad, on healhcare, The emotions fly. Based opon my unscientific blog poll. Americans want little to nothing to do with a Government in the health care business,
      One soldier, attending a Health Care town hall said it best. The founders related that the clause, “General Welfare”m was limited to Article 1 of the constitution. There was never an idea of a Utopian nanny state.
      Thanks again for cho0sing Politisite
