Since this plan/non-plan, otherwise known as HR3200, the only one released so far and ready to go to the floor for a vote as soon as Congress reconvenes, it having passed all the necessary committees, has provisions in it for a Board to call the shots on coverage, payments, fee schedules, etc., and all amendments to address the concerns of the citizens regarding abortion and illegal alien coverage have been thrown out, I'd say it's a pretty good bet that those will be covered. If the government wants to do that, fine, as long as our tax dollars don't go to paying for it. And that's what they are saying right now, isn't it, that this plan will be deficit neutral? Anyone want to place a wager on that one?
That's about as true a statement as the one they keep touting that if you like your insurance you can keep it, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. What about those of us who have already been told by our employers that we can't keep our current insurance, that they will pay the 8% and put us all in the public option or government co-ops? And the CBO said millions will find themselves in that position if this particular bill is passed.
No Ron, there is another option. Pay for emergency care only for illegals just prior to their deportation.
How about this for a plan: We have the government offer government insurance, optional, of course, in a free society, to those who need insurance and can't get it elsewhere, and leave the rest of us the hell alone.
No, but that won't do, will it, because health coverage for the uninsured is not the issue with them. Controlling the entire system is their aim.
