What I know, is that this is just a small tip of the iceberg. Believe it or not, I have sat down and read parts of the Health Care Bill and it doesn't take long to feel like you're going cross-eyed. Seems to me like the "Secretary" has an awful lot of flexibility with things when he/she deems something is necessary. This reform creates bigger government and reaches the government's ever so long tentacles further into American's lives.
The Income Tax was started in 1913 under Woodrow Wilson. Social Security was signed into law by FDR in January 1937. Medicare and Medicaid made their debut in July 1965 during Lyndon B. Johnson's administration. What do each of these have in common? These three Presidents were all Democrats and there was a Democratic majority in the House and Senate that made sure all of these programs went through. Social Security is almost bankrupt. Medicare is almost bankrupt. Medicaid is almost bankrupt. Income taxes don't seem to be getting any lower and China just about owns the U.S. Those that endorse Health Reform state that we need it because of these facts...I say, What makes them think they're going to do any better this time around??
Food for thought: If it took 18 months of debate for the Medicare Bill to go through in 1965 and the Obamas took at least six months to pick out their dog, then why, oh why, does this have to be done yesterday??
