Don't let up your efforts to kill the health bill that the White House and Pelosi/Reid are trying to force on the American public, despite the fact that the majority of Americans (73%) are opposed to this monstrosity. Who would ever want Congress to control health care, which represents one-sixth of our exconomy?!
As Ed Morrissey of Hot Air said at a "Kill the Bill" rally in Minnesota over the weekend, this is "the most expansive government takeover attempt in our history." Once you enact massive entitlement programs, you simply can't go back, as we see with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The proposed "health care bill (AKA insurance company bail-out) is 1) way too expensive and 2) way too far-reaching.
The FAR better choice is to enact a series of incremental steps, including separating health care from employment, allowing health insurance companies to sell their coverage across state lines, and allowing companies to offer an array of coverages, not mandate what insurance companies must provide.
This deal is still in the works, and the American people (you and me!) must keep calling and writing our senators and representatives to let them know we want to Kill the Bill. Scrap it and start over. As the HillBuzz boyz say, "Not. This. Time.
