The "Payoff" to pass healthcare-you pay for it...

    Chicago-style politics was in full form as Reid used your tax
    dollars to payoff Sens. Landrieu, Lieberman and Nelson. These select
    "holdout" Senators stand to reap a bountiful harvest of YOUR
    tax dollars for their support of the healthcare plan!

    As the seedy details of the bill begin to ooze to the surface,
    here are just a few of the "bribes" Reid used to gain Senate support...

            --$100 million for an unnamed health care facility.
            --One state gets to expand Medicaid at no cost --
              while taxpayers in the other 49 states foot the bill.
            --One insurance company, located in a swing Senator's
              home state has special "untold" benefits from the bill.

    I truly cannot comment to that as I haven't followed the health care plan as closely as many others have. It's not that I don't care, but I don't believe that what they will do will benefit me today, tomorrow, nor 2 years from now.

    The comment I heard tonight on the news that DID catch my ears is that pre-existing conditions would be banned from disbarring applicants to health care...or did I hear that incorrectly?

    If that is the case, then I do see insurance rates being raised and whatever system the government comes up with to fill the slack will be too late and a dollar short.

    sad but true...we pay for our own demise; as American citizens we continue to let the government use and abuse us

    their ends do not justify the means...there is a better way..
