Default has anyone read the healthcare bill

you hear so much good/bad about it, i wonder if anyone, politicians or general public, actually read it front to back-what is it, like 1400 pages
did the Suprems read all of it, or do all these guys have assistances read it and give their version of what they think
i wonder if you can order a printed version

No need to read it,,,,,,,,,,,,George ''said'' i was going to be fine !!!!!!!!
It's not a way of "thinking", it's a way of "observing". Nothing of substance will change in your life regarding health care, neither for the better or for the worse.

The healthcare bill is available online in .pdf format. I have not read the entire bill but use it for reference when specific provisions are discussed.

Even if you could get a copy of it to read you would still need a team of highly corruped insurance Lawyers to try and explain it to you that is why ity is 2700 pages just like the IRS tax code so they can manipulate the out come they way they want to.

A bill that long, has to be loaded with loopholes. You have to pass it to find out whats in it.

I started one time, but it's so loaded with Legalese, what it really means, depends on how it's implemented.

They should pass a law that no bills are more than 10 pages and shall be written for the non Lawyer in a separate page to fully explain them.

Anyone under 130% of the poverty level, or with a preexisting condition, is eligible for Medicare.

If you're going to do it at all.

Just curious, have you read the bill to know what's in it? Or is it because of what your party tells you to think on the issue? You can disagree with the general concept but before you claim it's a stupid bill, shouldn't you read it all?

The reason that the bill is so long is to render it unreadable. Those clever liberals.

Waivers for political payback, increased taxation, robbery of Medicaid, penalty for not purchasing insurance. You read it....until then....it's a stupid bill.

I have read a lot of it. I have the .pdf on my laptop. I have the original bill, and the reconcilliation. I also have a lot of the CBO blog posts on it. I may at some point write a long thread/post on it, but needless to say, there is little good that will come out of it.
