          The question now is how will this affect the 253,000,000 who already have coverage and what happens to the 17,000,000 who will still not have coverage.

          According to a Democrat who was interviewed this morning, if your family of four makes over $88,000 a year your rates will go up. If you make under $88,000 per year with your family of four your rates will go down. They will go down because the government will now subsidize the cost of your insurance. We all know where the government will get the money to subsidize don't we.

            probably the worst piece of legislation to come down the process in the last 40 years,

            assured serfdom of the people,

            the congress passed laws and mandates rules and regulations, that raise the cost of health care and then use the results to take over more private business and subject the population to more and more restrictions,

            the health care insurance programs that the government runs now are nearly broke, or soon will be and part of there process is to take from Medicare and
            The Senate bill also cuts Medicare by roughly $500 billion.
            provide for the new program, so how does robing the broke system goign to help the new, or the old.

            part of the problem now is that the government does not pay what the bill is any way and were having to subsidize there systems.

            IF this bill passes, let me know how much better your health care becomes, and if you think there is problems now wait until the Government is running things and there is NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.

            My health-care plan

            Liberals keep complaining that Republicans don't have a plan for reforming health care in America. I have a plan!

            It's a one-page bill creating a free market in health insurance. Let's all pause here for a moment so liberals can Google the term "free market."

            Nearly every problem with health care in this country – apart from trial lawyers and out-of-date magazines in doctors' waiting rooms – would be solved by my plan.

            In the first sentence, Congress will amend the McCarran-Ferguson Act to allow interstate competition in health insurance.

            We can't have a free market in health insurance until Congress eliminates the antitrust exemption protecting health insurance companies from competition. If Democrats really wanted to punish insurance companies, which they manifestly do not, they'd make insurers compete.

            The very next sentence of my bill provides that the exclusive regulator of insurance companies will be the state where the company's home office is. Every insurance company in the country would incorporate in the state with the fewest government mandates, just as most corporations are based in Delaware today.

            That's the only way to bypass idiotic state mandates, requiring all insurance plans offered in the state to cover, for example, the Zone Diet, sex-change operations and whatever it is that poor Heidi Montag has done to herself this week.

            President Obama says we need national health care because Natoma Canfield of Ohio had to drop her insurance when she couldn't afford the $6,700 premiums, and now she's got cancer.

            Much as I admire Obama's use of terminally ill human beings as political props, let me point out here that perhaps Natoma could have afforded insurance had she not been required by Ohio's state insurance mandates to purchase a plan that covers infertility treatments and unlimited ob/gyn visits, among other things.

            It sounds like Natoma could have used a plan that covered only the basics – you know, things like cancer.

            The third sentence of my bill would prohibit the federal government from regulating insurance companies, except for normal laws and regulations that apply to all companies.

            Freed from onerous state and federal mandates turning insurance companies into public utilities, insurers would be allowed to offer a whole smorgasbord of insurance plans, finally giving consumers a choice.

            Instead of Harry Reid deciding whether your insurance plan covers Viagra, this decision would be made by you, the consumer. (I apologize for using the terms "Harry Reid" and "Viagra" in the same sentence. I promise that won't happen again.)

            Instead of insurance companies jumping to the tune of politicians bought by health-care lobbyists, they would jump to tune of hundreds of millions of Americans buying health insurance on the free market.

            Hypochondriac liberals could still buy the aromatherapy plan, and normal people would be able to buy plans that only cover things such as major illness, accidents and disease. (Again – things like Natoma Canfield's cancer.)

            This would, in effect, transform medical insurance into ... a form of insurance!

            My bill will solve nearly every problem allegedly addressed by Obamacare – and mine entails zero cost to the taxpayer. Indeed, a free market in health insurance would produce major tax savings as layers of government bureaucrats, unnecessary to medical service in America, get fired.

            For example, in a free market, the government wouldn't need to prohibit insurance companies from excluding "pre-existing conditions."

            Of course, an insurance company has to be able to refuse new customers with "pre-existing conditions." Otherwise, everyone would just wait to get sick to buy insurance. It's the same reason you can't buy fire insurance on a house that's already on fire.

            That isn't an "insurance company"; it's what's known as a "Christian charity."

            What Democrats are insinuating when they denounce exclusions of "pre-existing conditions" is an insurance company using the "pre-existing condition" ruse to deny coverage to a current policy holder – someone who's been paying into the plan, year after year.

            Any insurance company operating in the free market that pulled that trick wouldn't stay in business long.

            If hotels were as heavily regulated as health insurance is, right now I'd be explaining to you why the government doesn't need to mandate that hotels offer rooms with beds. If they didn't, they'd go out of business.

            I'm sure people who lived in the old Soviet Union thought it was crazy to leave groceries to the free market. ("But what if they don't stock the food we want?")

            The market is a more powerful enforcement mechanism than indolent government bureaucrats. If you don't believe me, ask Toyota about six months from now.

            Right now, insurance companies are protected by government regulations from having to honor their contracts. Violating contracts isn't so easy when competitors are lurking, ready to steal your customers.

            In addition to saving taxpayer money and providing better health insurance, my plan also saves trees by being 2,199 pages shorter than the Democrats' plan.

            Feel free to steal it, Republicans!

                Actually I believe it is the $940,000,000,000 question. Caterpillar has announced if passed, the Bill will cost them $100,000,000 the first year with benefits not even starting until 4-years later. I wonder how many of their 44,000 workers will get a pink slip?

                    Because the 85% of those alreday covered were too content so now they will also pay for the new 10% who will be added to the system. Of course they will ultimately also pay for the last 5% because no one is ever denied treatment in an emergency room.

                      You people complain about the cost of Health Care, yet not a peep on the 600 billion dollars spent in Iraq so far? That cost alone can pay for the full healthcare of every man, woman, and child, including the illegals, every year.

                      Think about that, the amount of money being spent to kill people, could instead keep our own people alive. Not only that, can you imagine how wet the front of the executives pants would be if our government injected 200 billion dollars a year into the health industry? That alone would give our economy a boost, and no one will ever complain about premiums again!

                        Because it needed it. Ever notice how the largest buildings in a city often belong to an insurance company? Ask yourself this, how much of your premiums are really just the cost of overhead?

                          It is an interesting read but fails to address the fact Republicans are opposing legislation to return the insurance industry to free market rules. In the house this bill was introduced. H.R. 4626:Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act

                          It was opposed by Republican majority leader John Boehner along with 18 others. Despite their efforts the bill passed anyway. It will never be debated in the senate as the Republican party has promised to filibuster if it is introduced.

                          So Miss Ann can get up on her horse all she wants and claim free market is the way to go but maybe rather then trying to convince liberals and Democrats of that she should start with conservatives and Republicans.

                            Unfortunately, we can't afford to pay for the war either, that's why we are in debt to communist china! We need to bring back the troops, secure our borders, build factories and build America. We need to let some people die, because the money is Not There anymore. We are broke!!! Stop buying big screen tv's for $1000 or more dollars, stop crushing cars that run(how stupid and wasteful was that?).
                            Did you hear, the windmills for wind turbines and the solar panels for alternative energy are not made in the USA, because a "made in the USA only" provision was taken out of the legislation. Stupid is as stupid does and here we are, one stupid thing after another.

                              Frank, I'm going to tell you something that just might get you angry, but there is a reason for it. That little bit about ripping the "Made in USA" label off all the renewable energy devices? You will be very suprised who pushed for that little bit of legislation: The American manufacturers themselves!

                              Case in point, right here in Massachusetts there are a couple factories that build photovoltaic panels (aka Solar Panels). Since 2007, there has been an incentive program, in addition to the state rebate program, to purchase locally made systems. However, the owner himself pushed to have such an incentive removed, inspite of the slight increase in business it created. Here is why, that owner, while nice to have a local edge, knew it would set a precedent for other states to create their own programs of similar fashion, thus make things nigh impossible to expand his business outside state lines.

                              Besides, foreign companies located in japan (World's primary supplier of solar panels), and German (Primary supply of windmill and turbine generators) have been manufacturing, and perfecting these systems for years. Is it any suprise that our government wants to open the doors to these people when we need Japanese electronics and German precision ball bearings plus motors the most?
