I watched quite a bit of it. What it boiled down to me is that the Dem's came with there 2000 plus page Bill. Filled with mandates, restrictions and pork spending. Yes, they have 11 million set aside for clinics run by Planned parenthood (another payback). Abortions paid for. While the Republican plan is much the same but without a bureaucracy that will cost trillions of money we just do not have. People are barely making it and to put a tax on you and then force you to buy a plan, if you can not afford it, you will be subsidized. But in their minds you will have to afford it. Medicare is 1/3 waste and fraud. That is billions we could use. This past year why did they not focus on cutting the fraud instead of spending every waking moment trying to ram some huge health bureaucracy down our throats. It will create 1 Million jobs, 400,00 right off the bat, says Pelosi. That would be Government Jobs. That is how many people it will take to run government health care. That is what will be Between you and your Doctor. The republicans had a shining moment and the Dem's fill as though even with all logic thrown at them that this HUGE Bill is good.
I believe they had no plans to be bi-partisan. I believe they will try to get it passed through reconciliation. Again I believe there will not be one Democrat in office after the fall elections. Obama said he did not care about the polls or the elections. To me, he said he does not care what the majority of the people want.
