The way I read it, the conservatives aren't taking any RINO poop, and that could be a good thing. My guess is that the whole process will stall because any changes to appease conservatives will probably alienate liberals. In other words, congress is great at breaking stuff, and bad at fixing stuff.
They actually want the law to lower insurance premiums!
Even more gall by the rinos for proposing legislation that did not directly address cost. People all over the country are seeing double digit percentage increases in cost and they brushed cost aside as if it were something that could be dealt with later. I.e. It was a deliberate attempt to kick the can down the road again.
Do we really believe that any of these, (whatever label you want to put on them), people are going to break their own rice bowl?? How much $$$$$$ is the insurance industry spending buying votes? That is what the insurance lobby and congress are all about. What do they care or even know about middle America? Their focus is on re-election and their own benefits.
I think it will work it's way out. I am somewhat disappointed that we have heard nothing concerning tort reform, something I consider critical toward lowering medical costs.
That's one piece of the puzzle to address costs but unfortunately we're not going to get tort reform from a bunch of lawyers.
Liberal Logic 101:
Americans shall be required to submit to a background check to exercise a right already guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment while any foreigner shall be allowed into America without submitting to a background check.
I googled it and found that according to Fox business news that there has been a slow and steady decline in the number of lawyers in congress since the '60s and it now stands at 40%. You can bet that none of these will do anything that disrupts the lawyer business and there are enough others that will bend to the lobbyists so we are going to see nothing significant happen.
Tort reform is a big one it would ease the case loads on the lower courts also. I had a lawyer once who became a district judge. He told me that one of his biggest burdens were the divorce and custody cases. And the most rediculous cases were the Internet dating divorce cases. These stupid people meet online and marry each other within a couple of weeks.
