Health Care Deconstructed: The SOS digs deep

OK … it’s done. Now what is behind this wonderful piece of legislation that turns over health care to government and in effect turns health insurance companies into regulated utilities?

The SOS has been working overtime Sunday and will be joining us Monday at 9:15 AM to clear up a few points on the Senate Health Care Bill that is law. She will be examining:

  • We get the same health care that members of Congress get
  • The HHS and a variety of health care advisory boards that will determine, not doctors and not us, best practice for seniors and the rest of us, as well as determining what our insurance will cover
  • Pre-exisitng conditions and insurance pools for people with pre-existing conditions
  • and abortion coverage.

I have been told over this past week that Congressional aids to our Connecticut delegation have blasted our analysis and even chided one caller, for relying on the SOS’s research, ignorant. Listen and learn my friends tomorrow at 9:15 AM

    SOS, if I could, I would come down there and make you fresh coffee, cappuchinos, espressos, whatever you needed to plow through this fertilizer pile.

    Its not OK Jim.  A government has to have the consent of the governed or divisions will grow between the governing  class and its alienated  subjects . This bill does not achieve public consent . In fact it has provoked public contempt for government.  This law  is an act of rape and plunder that leaves the majority of americans wanting to take a morning after pill.

    Well I hate to say this but it does not appear that our elected officials are listening to the people. They do what they have been purchased to do!   I guess we need to encourage our friends and neighbors educate themselves and then VOTE!!  Stop pulling the lever for a D or an R  educate yourself. That's how we got in this mess in the first place.

      Some very inspiring speeches on the floor debate from Republicans. Boehner was excellant. The West Virginia Rep with her extended quilt analogy. Dems were shaky and unprepaped. Working so hard to lock down votes they were not ready for debate . They hissed like snakes interrupting good speeches, and were too cowardly to vote  in front of the camera.

    Really wish I could "listen and learn," but CBS radio has cut off international program streaming. 

    Please, my big question (apart from why no one calls Stupak "Stupid,") is what about Americans living overseas?  Are we legally obligated to buy US health insurance?  I know this was way too parochial an issue for politicians to consider – they just want pork for their own states – but, it is a very important one for US citizens living abroad.  Will they extradite us ifwe don't??? (rotfl).

    I briefly looked at the bill, but my brain won't absorb gobbledy-gook this early in the morning.  Will post this with Steve's blog also.

    What does this new bill say about illegal aliens ?  Since they live here, and hospitals cannot reject them, how are they covered ?  Does this plan cover them as well ?
