The Baucus Bait And Switch

It’s actually called lying, you know it, I know it.

So you wonder why Congress won’t make the bills available before they vote? What, you figure the health care bill was designed to actually improve healthcare and they wanted to surprise you? Nope, it’s the same old bait and switch, Heritage Foundation gets to the bottom of a nearly bottomless pit of trickery, charade and downright lying.

Look at it this way, this is what Heritage found in the “concept” not the real bill. Yes we are dealing with concept bills, but very fake costs.  The real legislative language is a fill in the “BLANKS” kind of thing, since last time the COngress actually put the real language in a bill they were planning to voter for, the people didn’t like at all.

So now they think a ‘VAPOR’ bill will keep your criticism away.

When do you think the Congress and President will stop lying to the American people? Probably when the DNC parrot media rolls over and gasps its last.


One Response to The Baucus Bait And Switch

  1. Now, if this web site is funded by the insurance industry, you won’t like this question. But why are we being so damned stupid?

    For the same amount of dollars we are spending today (16.5% of GDP) we could provide first-class Cheney-care to 100% of our population. Including those in SCHIP and Medicaid, and those who are uninsured and under-insured.

    It’d be a Medicare-for-all system that would eliminate the insurance bureaucracy waste (31% of our costs) and spend it on patient care instead. We’d pay for the system through our national infrastructure (taxes) and eliminate this cost for businesses. They could spend the savings on keeping jobs in the US instead of outsourcing to countries already with universal healthcare. A bailout for 100% of our businesses, not just the banks and car manufacturers.

    But instead, we are spending more time and money trying to avoid doing it the right way, than it would cost to do it correctly up front. All because we have some people that don’t want to see others get something for free.

    I say, don’t give it to them for free. Require them to volunteer time for the state or somewhere that would benefit the needy. But let’s quit screwing around with something that is going to happen anyway — either this year or next — and let’s fix it and move on to repairing our economy and making our nation competitive once again. We are wasting valuable time.
