Following is three pages of highlights of HR 3200, the Democrats' Health Plan. And yes, I read it. If you would like to verify these highlights, go to www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h3200/text It's over 1000 pages in length, so it takes a while to upload.
I don't know about you, but the idea of some non-medical bureaucrat telling me what I can and can't have in the way of medical care is downright frightening. Especially the part about euthanasia for us Senior Citizens.

I doubt it has a snowball's chance in hell (where they have socialized medicine) of passing... at least in its current form.
Too many people are beginning to learn what we've known from the beginning: The fatal economic flaws, the overall destructive nature of the bill, the -Unconstitutionality-, etc.
Many of the amendments to the bill lessened the nuclear nature of the legislation, but it is still an atrocity that should never have seen the light of day. Sunlight is the best antiseptic. We just need to keep the pressure on Congress.

Yes I have called. I doubt that it will help. The best thing we can all do is if it passes, just stop what you are doing and EVERYONE show up at a doctor's office or hospital at the same time. How does the government possibly think they could add in 50 million people without insurance and not add ONE more doctor? Impossible.

I pray to God it won't pass. I can't believe some of the things I just read in it. It really is ridiculous. While there are good things, the bad are just going to hurt the middle class more and more. There's going to be 2 classes soon, the lower class everyone living on welfare and needing the gov't and the high class, throwing money around like it's candy.

I don't think it will pass. When the congressman have time to sit down and read this garbage they will vote no. If it did pass hundreds of thousands of jobs would be lost, but Obama isn't worried about that hes busy shoving it down our throats when most Ame ansans don't want it.

I guess it is going to come to a vote in September. They are also saying that they are going to add the Cap and Trade bill to it before then. I don't know if it will pass or not, but I'm emailing our Representatives and Senators every day with my wish list so they send me back platitudes -afterall, I'm just another Sheeple.
I have also tracked down all the blue dog emails and sent them all emails. What good will that do? I don't know. Maybe while they are all at home people will nag them into doing what is right. We'll see. :)

I have sent an email opposing Obamacare to My Representative and my two Senators

Since the Congress idiots get a chance to read the damn thing and they will have time to hear the screams from voters, I think they will be afraid to vote for it and it will fail miserably!
My senators don't care what we say. Feinstein & Boxer will vote for this scam. My moderate republican rep will vote no!Source(s): Obama is not my fault!

I think the plan should be scrutinized carefully by both sides. There may be things in it that actually hurt people that need care the most.

Have you called YOUR Congressperson to demand they abolish Medicaid, Medicare & the Interstate system? Socialist plots all!
(You see how nuts that sounds? Huh?)
