Governors Balk Over Emerging Health Bill Because of Cost


www.nytimes.com

BILOXI, Miss. — The nation’s governors, Democrats as well as Republicans, voiced deep concern Sunday about the shape of the health care bill emerging from Congress, fearing that the federal government is about to hand them expensive new Medicaid obligations without providing the money to pay for them.

The role of the states in a restructured health care system dominated the National Governors Association’s summer meeting here this weekend — with bipartisan animosity voiced against the Obama administration’s plan during a closed-door luncheon on Saturday and in a private meeting on

Well finally this health bill is starting to get more (negative) attention, its the first time i have seen it as the headline on any website (this one was drudgereport).

People if you want an idea of what government ran health care is gonna be like, go to your local DMV, there you'll see how nice, efficient, and helpful the entire process is.

I know some say this bill wont force you to have there health care plan, and it isn't quite government ran health care, but its a huge step in that direction.

Well, Let's have that same plan Obama promised in the campaign! The same plan that you and Senator McCain enjoy! (yeah, it is on youtube)

Democrats also voted down an amendment from Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nv.) that would require all Members of Congress to get insurance through the government-run plan. Apparently Democrat members of Congress do not like the government plan they’re trying to inflict on the rest of us. In a straight party line vote, Democrats voted against exempting themselves from the government-run plan by a vote of 21-18.

“We also had an amendment to require that members of Congress must participate in the government-run plan,” Camp said. “If it’s such a great idea, it should be a great idea for members of Congress. The majority voted to prevent that from happening. They voted to exempt members of Congress from the government-run plan.”

Also voted down were amendments that would require proof of citizenship or legal status to sign up for the government plan, that would bar government funding abortion as a plan “benefit,” and an amendment that would bar rationing of health care based on comparative effectiveness data.

Question: Does your plan cover the 12 million or so illegal immigrants?

Obama's Answer: It does not

Question: Why not?

Obama's Answer: Because I think we have limited resources and it is important to us that when we have millions of U.S. citizens that aren't yet covered that it is important for us to make sure that they are provided coverage.
