The proposed medical legislation is far to complicated for me to understand. Since it requires some 2400 closely typed pages of convoluted and cross referenced text - I am sure I would forget the first pages by the time I got to page 1019 or so. Like me, many of you probably rely on the summaries and interpretations of others. Unfortunately, they often tend to be politically biased. Somehow this legislation has been turned into a partisan issue when it never should have been. The matter of improving Amreica's health care is important to all of us and not just the Democrats. From the beginning it has been driven by the far, far left liberals with little, if any, input from the more conservative middle. The result is a bill that satisfies no one.
I first thought that the legislation was so wildly expensive and that it should be shot down regardless of it's merit. I really objected to the WAY it was drawn up (liberal input only), and to the rush to pass it before anyone had an opportunity to read it (or understand it), and especially the borrowing beyond the capacity for OUR generation to pay for it.
It is time for America to live within it's means. Our economy is already stretched thin and our financial condition is declining in relation to other world currencies. Since our printed dollars have no valuable commodity backing them - it is especially important that we keep our dollar relatively strong.
For all of these reasons, this current health care initiative should fail.
