I think that these legislators are trying to set up a Chinese kind of government. In the US case it is like a form of market fachistism. In China it is market socialism.

No matter what they vote for I don't think it will get any traction. It won't work.

I have not read the bill, but have read many articles regarding it, and it seems as if everyone is speculating.

Can someone tell me if a family making 80k (roughly) will be having to end up paying more or less for this new plan (if it goes through the Senate)?

What does this mean for wages/hours for workers around the nation?

How about the costs for employers?

Will the entire medical industry be losing profits now?

Please, no one take my questions in an "anti-government" or "anti-big corp" manner, as I am just curious about the results of this possible reform.

OP, your choice of words are kind of ironic.

'Chines kind of government'. Think about who owns most of our debt.

So the ball is in who's court?

Not saying that China is setting our policies, but I can bet when they have a 'suggestion', our guys listen simply because the Chinese government has their b#lls in a vice.

Not that I know this for a fact, just my two cents.
