As this NYTimes article indicates the proposed legislation going through the legislative process will extend coverage to millions of more Americans, and the CBO (the non-partisan branch) “said that the $871 billion cost of the bill would be more than offset by the new revenues and cuts in spending…” But according to Republicans the foregoing is a really bad deal…. Hmmmm???
Maybe it is time, as Jim Hightower (photo above) suggested, to contact our Republican congress persons and ask that they give up their “socialized medicine” – which consists of wholely tax payer financed health insurance and physicians on call for every minute the federal legislators are in session. Doing the right thing would involve spurning these evil socialist benefits. Right???
