March Madness indeed
Public opinion polls indicate a majority of Americans have turned against the Obama administration's health care "reform" plan.
The House will consider two measures Sunday: an $875 billion plan that the Senate passed in December and the revised $940 billion measure.
If the $875 billion Senate bill passes, it will go to President Obama's desk to be signed into law. If the revisions are approved, they still will have to clear the Senate.
Our country is $12 trillion dollars (that's trillion with a "T") in the hole. This plan will sink us $1 Trillion deeper and cannot be proven to actually impact the health care access challenges currently faced or the economy in a positive way. Most Congress people haven't even read the bill in it's entirety! Obviously, many think the bill will mean a decrease in health care quality and a serious negative impact on the economy immediately and for the long term.
A poll taken in recent days shows 55% of the American population to oppose this legislation.
Despite the clear opinion of the people, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and a great number of elected officials drive on to pass this bill.
Indeed- March Madness.
