Washington Examiner reports on the demo proposed health care bill.
"Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would be awarded unprecedented new powers under the proposal, including the authority to decide what medical care should be covered by insurers as well as the terms and conditions of coverage and who should receive it...The HHS secretary would also have the power to decide where abortion is allowed under a government-run plan."
The end result would be the federal government having direct control over the insurance market as opposed to the current system where the states have the discretionary power to regulate the market. The American public made it perfectly clear that a universal health care system was not to be tolerated, and now the demos have the audacity to implement this backdoor policy in attempts to control the insurance market.
The articles continues with: "Critics of the bill said this was an example of how the new bill could empower HHS to alter health care delivery, but Democrats argue they would rather have the government making these decisions." THEY ARE THE GOVERNMENT. Even if Congress was doing an amazing job, it would still be absurd to allow this much government intervention.
Gallup polls show Congress approvals at a mere 21%. Not a stellar rating there, Nancy. Additionally, their is a higher percentage of Americans disapproving the health care bill, also according to Gallup.
Demos attempts to force this issue down the throats of Americans will result in a "throw the bums out" GOTV effort come election time. Keep it up and you won't be there for long.
