Health Care: The Simple Solution
Rev. Wayne Perryman
flag_seperator.gif
Dear Friends
There is a simple solution to the health care debate. If the bill is indeed designed for the common citizen, do the following:
1. Go out and pick 3,000 persons at random
2. Give them each a copy of the 2,700 pages of the health care bill that is designed for them
3. Give them one week to study the bill
4. At the end of the week test them on the bill to see if they thoroughly understand it
5. If the majority of them pass the test, and agree with it - sign the bill into law, but if they flunk the test, scrap the bill and come up with a new bill that they can read, understand and agree with.
If you won't allow someone to spend your hard earned money to buy you a pair of shoes without your approval (to see if they fit or to see if you really like them), why would you let someone develop a healthcare plan for you, one that you have not personally approved of or can even understand.
Anyone can write up a proposal and tell you to sign it and approve of it without having you to read it. This is how they trapped and obligated uneducated poor black sharecroppers who made their mark with an X. These poor individuals worked for years, but could never pay off their debt because they were merely told what was in the contract rather than reading it themselves. These individuals learned one lesson: "Thoroughly read it - before you sign it."
Rev. Wayne Perryman


If you agree, pass it on.

Onward with Obamacare, Regardless
Charles Krauthammer
Wasington Post Friday, March 5th, 2010
flag_seperator.gif

So the yearlong production, set to close after Massachusetts's devastatingly negative Jan. 19 review, saw the curtain raised one last time. Obamacare lives.

After 34 speeches, three sharp electoral rebukes (Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts) and a seven-hour seminar, the president announced Wednesday his determination to make one last push to pass his health-care reform.

The final act was carefully choreographed. The rollout began a week earlier with a couple of shows of bipartisanship: a Feb. 25 Blair House "summit" with Republicans, followed five days later with a few concessions tossed the Republicans' way.

Show is the operative noun. Among the few Republican suggestions President Obama pretended to incorporate was tort reform. What did he suggest to address the plague of defensive medicine that a Massachusetts Medical Society study showed leads to about 25 percent of doctor referrals, tests and procedures being done for no medical reason? A few ridiculously insignificant demonstration projects amounting to one-half of one-hundredth of 1 percent of the cost of his health-care bill.

As for the Blair House seminar, its theatrical quality was obvious even before it began. The Democrats had already decided to go for a purely partisan bill. Obama signaled precisely that intent at the end of the summit show -- then dramatically spelled it out just six days later in his 35th health-care speech: He is going for the party-line vote.

Unfortunately for Democrats, that seven-hour televised exercise had the unintended consequence of showing the Republicans to be not only highly informed on the subject, but also, as even Obama was forced to admit, possessed of principled objections -- contradicting the ubiquitous Democratic/media meme that Republican opposition was nothing but nihilistic partisanship.

Republicans did so well, in fact, that in his summation, Obama was reduced to suggesting that his health-care reform was indeed popular because when you ask people about individual items (for example, eliminating exclusions for preexisting conditions or capping individual out-of-pocket payments), they are in favor.

Yet mystifyingly they oppose the whole package. How can that be?

Allow me to demystify. Imagine a bill granting every American a free federally delivered ice cream every Sunday morning. Provision 2: steak on Monday, also home delivered. Provision 3: a dozen red roses every Tuesday. You get the idea. Would each individual provision be popular in the polls? Of course.

However (life is a vale of howevers) suppose these provisions were bundled into a bill that also spelled out how the goodies are to be paid for and managed -- say, half a trillion dollars in new taxes, half a trillion in Medicare cuts (cuts not to keep Medicare solvent but to pay for the ice cream, steak and flowers), 118 new boards and commissions to administer the bounty-giving, and government regulation dictating, for example, how your steak is to be cooked. How do you think this would poll?

Perhaps something like 3 to 1 against, which is what the latest CNN poll shows is the citizenry's feeling about the current Democratic health-care bills.

Late last year, Democrats were marveling at how close they were to historic health-care reform, noting how much agreement had been achieved among so many factions. The only remaining detail was how to pay for it.

Well, yes. That has generally been the problem with democratic governance: cost. The disagreeable absence of a free lunch.

Which is what drove even strong Obama supporter Warren Buffett to go public with his judgment that the current Senate bill, while better than nothing, is a failure because the country desperately needs to bend the cost curve down, and the bill doesn't do it. Buffett's advice would be to start over and get it right with a bill that says "we're just going to focus on costs and we're not going to dream up 2,000 pages of other things." (Disclosure: Buffett is a director of The Washington Post Co.)

Obama has chosen differently, however. The time for debate is over, declared the nation's seminar leader in chief. The man who vowed to undo Washington's devious and wicked ways has directed the Congress to ram Obamacare through, by one vote if necessary, under the parliamentary device of "budget reconciliation." The man who ran as a post-partisan is determined to remake a sixth of the U.S. economy despite the absence of support from a single Republican in either house, the first time anything of this size and scope has been enacted by pure party-line vote.

Surprised? You can only be disillusioned if you were once illusioned.

Health Care Bull Crap

Andy Stevens, December 5th, 2009
flag_seperator.gif

The bill is being debated, written and re-written on the floor, tweaked behind closed doors 24-7 in the hope of passage in time to present this "Great Christmas Present" to the people.

Well people, time is getting short so unless you want this wonderful present to land under your Christmas tree, you'd better engage every means of communication you have at your disposal to defeat it. It's time to quit being articulate. Just tell them you don't want the damned thing! I'll try and explain why in laymen's terms, as simply as possible!

The bill being presented as the "All Encompassing Universal "Health Care Bill" has very little to do with health care and very much to do with control… period. Passing legislation of this magnitude would provide the government with absolute control of a major portion of our economy, our resources and last but not least, our fundamental rights and freedom of choice.

Nowhere under the Constitution and Bill of Rights have the federal government been provided the powers to legislate such a bill into the law of the land.

If the violation of our Constitutional rights is not deterrent enough, sheer logic should be a factor in reaching an intelligent decision. Why would it make sense to turn over a monumental share of authority and GNP to those who have flagrantly abused and bankrupted us with the inept and utter mismanagement of programs such as Social Security the Federal Post Office, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, Medicare, Medicaid, FDIC, and The Federal Reserve? More recent items of note include The Bailout of Wall Street and the banking industry, the auto industry, the Cash for Clunkers program and wait, (as they say on TV)…. There's more to come.

Race, religions, morality or immorality has nothing to do with it. The Health Care Plan is just ONE BAD IDEA!

But the smoke and mirrors continue to fuel the argument. "Should it pay for abortions? Should it be mandatory? Can we opt out? Will it cover illegals? Who should pay? Who should be exempt? Should elected officials be included? Should that be mandatory?" as though solving this host of problems will make the entire bill more palatable.

So I say to those we've elected to do our bidding…

Let's just CUT THE CRAP! The Health Care Bill in its basic premise violates our constitutional rights. Kill it and find a better cure. Through this ongoing volume of verbal intercourse you've already defined the problems! You broke 'em… now sit down and fix them, one at a time. And keep in mind that you additional funding does not constitute a solution. Often the obvious answer is ADMINISTRATION rather than REGULATION.

If you agree, pass it on.

The Health Care Armageddon Click for Printer Version
Andy Stevens, Sept 30, 2009
flag_seperator.gif

The Health Care Program will soon be a reality if we are not absolute and united in our convictions and resolve. I don't care you're Republican, Democrat, Black or White or striped like a zebra. I think our biggest issue is stopping the health care plan in it's tracks. The libs and administration are on track to shove it down our thoats in some kind of watered down version which they think they can make palatable.

Make no mistake... once health care is on the table our liberties as individuals are down the tube. The government rules. Think of it, the possibility of going to jail because you didn't buy insurance. How asinine and over the top is that?

Please, put every bit of your effort into the total defeat of the government mandated health care bill. convince your friends, family and acquaintances to do the same.

I would urge each of you to make copies of this correspondence. Then send them via e-Mail, U.S. Mail, Telephone, Telegraph or Pony Express to your local Senators, Representatives, Mayors, Governors as well as a CC of each directly to the White House.

Inform them that…

The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775 - you have had 234 years to get it right; it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935 - you have had 74 years to get it right; it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938 - you have had 71 years to get it right; it is broke.

The "War on Poverty" started in 1964 - you have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked and our entire country is broke.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 - you've had 44 years to get it right; they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970 - you have had 39 years to get it right; it is broke.

Trillions of dollars were spent in the massive political payoffs called TARP, the "Stimulus", the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009... None show any signs of working, although ACORN appears to have found a new bitch: the American taxpayer

And finally, to set a new record: "Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009! It took good dependable cars (that were the best some people could afford) and replaced them with high-priced and less-affordable cars, mostly Japanese. A good percentage of the profits went out of the country. And the American taxpayers take the hit for Congress' generosity in burning three billion more of our dollars on failed experiments.

So with a perfect 100% failure rate and a record that proves that "services" you shove down our throats are failing faster and faster, you want Americans to believe you can be trusted with a government-run health care system?

15
% of our entire economy? Are you out of your minds?

Tell them this...

With all due respect, if you want to put the budget back on track and lighten the load on the American citizen and taxpayer… go back to the drawing board. Take the time and effort to evaluate and repair the damage you have already done.

When that's done, come back to us, humbly and apologetically, with your hat in your hand and show us what you have to offer.

Until then we, Americans all, stand united in delivering in an emphatic and resounding NO to any health care bill you put forward.

ATown Hall Meeting with U.S. Congressman Brian Baird
I, David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that I was not going to be silent anymore. So, I let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. I was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, I quickly scratched what I wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that I borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before I spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy.

Cap and Trade / Health Care: A Constitutional Issue
Andy Stevens, July 16th, 2009
flag_seperator.gif
** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **
In our Republic we have three types of people...
Group one: These are the achievers, those who strive, work hard and are rewarded with the fruits of their toil.

Group two: The non-achievers. This group seldom exerts the extra effort required to rise above their station and attain their perceived goals. They are dissatisfied with their lot in life and spend much of their lives in envy of the achievers.

Group three: This segment consists of those who contribute absolutely nothing, yet demand equity based on the labor and achievement of society as a whole.

Some ride bicycles, some drive Chevys and Fords and others drive Cadillac's. Some just don't.

That's just the way it is.
In our Republic we have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights. These are the cornerstones on which our Republic was founded. Within this framework are three guarantees, the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Man's life, liberty and property are held sacred and protected by this constitutional framework and the government is simply an extension of mans basic rights. Any attempt to engage in the confiscation or the conscription of the fruit of one mans labor, by either man or government, in order to provide goods or service to another is an act of illegal plunder and as such should be protested and resisted by all.

And so on to the issues of "Cap and Trade" and "Government Health Care".
Whether or not each of these issues may or may not have perceived benefits in the eye of the beholder is not the question or the issue. The question is, "Are they acts of illegal plunder?" and "Are they in defiance of the very Constitution and Bill of Rights this country was founded on?" The simple and unequivocal answer in each of these instances is a resounding yes.
As such they should be resisted to the extreme. Call your congressman, your senators, your representatives, your family, your friends and your neighbors and stop this madness.

If love of country and our way of life are not enough to instill a sense of reason
The national debt as of this years budget is an estimated 1.7 Trillion, five times the amount of last years budget. All within one year. With Health Care and Cap and Trade this number will rise exponentially.
Do we want to place our faith and trust in the same people who ran the railroads into oblivion, who oversee our failing Postal System, the Barny Franks and Senator Dodd who ran oversight on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which triggered our current state of economy, to those entrusted with our Social Security program, Medicaid and Medicare who have voted themselves exempt? Do we want these folks to control our very livelihood and well being?
I though not. Nuff said.

Andy

Say "NO" to Obama's Nationalized Health Care.
The undersigned view the currently pending 2009 Congressional Healthcare legislation as UNTRUTHFUL, UNWISE and UN-AMERICAN.
flag_seperator.gif


Click here to sign the e-Petition: http://prehecar.epetitions.net/


The President says it is needed because 46 Million Americans are uninsured. But other analysts point out that approximately 14 million of these are already eligible for programs like Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP, but just haven't yet signed up. Approximately 18 million make more than $50,000 a year with over half this number making over $75,000. These individuals have simply chosen not to purchase it. Lastly, over 10 million of the uninsured are not U.S. citizens. So the true number of uninsured Americans who cannot afford health insurance is not 46 million, but instead 4 to 8 million. This is less than 2 - 3 % of Americans. So this legislation is based on UNTRUTHFUL hype.

Many of us agree: YES, for the 4-8 Million of uninsured Americans, this problem must be corrected in a fair and compassionate manner. But our American current Healthcare system ranks as the best in the world by many metrics, including:

better access to preventive cancer screening than Canadians; better survival rates than Europeans for common cancers; better access to treatment for chronic diseases than patients in other developed countries; lower income Americans are in better health than comparable Canadians; Americans spend less time waiting for care than patients in Canada and the U.K.; Americans are more satisfied with the care they receive than Canadians; Americans have much better access to important new technologies like medical imaging than patients in Canada or the U.K.; Americans are responsible for the vast majority of all global health care innovations.

Additionally, the thrust of the legislation relates to controlling and allocating benefits rather than dealing with high cost elements of the current system. Moreover, the bill would destroy the current private insurance that many Americans have elected for themselves. For any group of Politicians to mount an assault to correct a 2 - 3% problem by dismantling our current, unsurpassed system is extremely UNWISE on the face of it.

In 1776, Americans threw out a Government to pursue the right to Life, Liberty and Happiness, as cited in our Declaration of Independence. But legislation that puts nameless bureaucrats in charge of our health in lieu of decision between a doctor and patient - - is a clear assault on our well-being. In some cases, to save $$, those with less than some arbitrary time-to-live may actually be deprived of their life in the name of cost-cutting. This kind of paternalistic zealotry is totally UN-AMERICAN . Legislators who defer to this kind of Un-Constitutional attack on the American people deserve to be deprived of any votes whatsoever by the American Citizenry. Rather, we must band together, in Tea Party fashion, to achieve a Constitutional governance that responds to the People's will.

Accordingly, the undersigned hereby Petition our legislators to, in the spirit of our Founders, throw off this 'King George' mentality. We solicit you, as the People's representatives, to oppose this UN-AMERICAN affront to our Health, Life, Liberty and ability to Pursue Happiness.

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **Health-care reform meeting could draw a crowd

Aaron Burkhalter | Skagit Valley Herald August 07, 2009 - 08:35 PM

flag_seperator.gif


MOUNT VERNON - U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen can expect high emotions and tough questions Saturday afternoon at a town hall-style forum here.

The Washington Democrat faced a contentious and divisive crowd Thursday in Coupeville at a League of Women Voters-sponsored forum. The crowd split between people who want a reformed, government-sponsored option and people who fear that such an option would lead to steep tax increases.

Larsen will hold another session at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Skagit Public Utility District No. 1 offices at 1415 Freeway Drive in Mount Vernon.

Nels Kelstrom said opponents of government-run health care were "rude" and "overbearing" at the Coupeville forum. Nels said the crowd booed and made noise whenever Larsen or anyone else said anything promoting health care reform.

"Their whole intent was to shut down anybody who expressed a view other than their own," Kelstrom said.

Andy Stevens, who organizes "Tea Party" events in Anacortes to oppose higher taxes and government growth, said the reports on health care reform protests across the country overstate the temper of the events and dismiss the protesters as mouthpieces for the Republican Party.

He said people at these forums may become angry, but only because they are not getting the answers that they deserve.

"Nobody goes there with the object of being disruptive, but they damn sure do want answers," Stevens said. "They want answers, and they're not getting answers. They're doing the next thing: They're being assertive to get the answers. I don't think that's out of line."

• Aaron Burkhalter can be reached at 360-416141 or aburkhalter@skagitpublishing.com.

Tea Party member responses from the Meeting in Coupeville

Already the left wing attack dogs have responded to the article via the newspaper forum response, Their primary agitator under the alias of Tea-Time writes:
Quote: Andy Stevens said "people may become angry"? Andy Stevens and his clan ARE and HAVE BEEN angry. NOW they wave signs worrying that they "can't afford Obama" while HILARIOUSLY during the Bush years they stood under the gas station sign that went from under $2/gal to nearly $5/gal and we simultaneously shipped BILLIONS of dollars to the middle east to rebuild their country while our deficit skyrocketed! Oh.....its laughable. "Support the President, Support the Troops" Andy Stevens, and "Don't Forget 9-11". I'm a little disgusted and even embarrassed that he was even included in this article based on his corner behavior
and
Andy - the answer you want is likely not the answer you want to receive because its not what Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck told you was true. Not getting the answer you want does not constitute an uprising, ok?

My direct and immediate response
Quick note to Tea-Time and affiliates.

I see you folks are still around and using your classic playbook guidelines, i.e., "If you don't like the message, attack the messenger."

I don't mind. Experience has taight me that when you stand up for something you believe in you're also going to become a target of the Bevis and Butthead mentality folks like you. Fortunately I've developed a pretty thick skin over the years. Fire your best shot. It won't change the facts, or your perception of them.

Sorry folks, but the great "Health Care Debacle" and "Cap and Trade" are far more about legislative powers and government control than they are about the welfare of Joe Citizen.

My wife went to the event in Coupeville. She got there ½ hour early and the hall was already packed with Obama supporters. So she stood outside with a couple hundred other people. The event was totally one-sided -basically a Liberal Circle Jerk.

Be sure and get to the PUD early as their tactic seems to be to announce an event at 2PM and get all their supporters there by 1PM to fill up the hall.

I decided no need 4 me to stay at this one ........ was beaming from ear to ear that America's MOB is out in force. Heard from a friend who was "outside" listening on the outdoor speaker......evidently was an open forum of people from the audience asking ? 's vs. the controlled liberal event in Coupeville where no one could talk or clap but only the moderator who asked ?'s that were written out ahead of time ........... BS at the best.........Larsen continues to LIE about the Bill by saying that it is better than maintaining the STATUS QUO of the last 55 years......... no one bought it ......... he lied in Coupeville by trying to say no Illegal's would be included in the Health Care Bill .......lots of boooooooos ..........in a nutshell ....... AMERICA IS WAKENING ............... makes one take heart and HOPE FOR CHANGE ...........ON OUR SIDE OF THE LEDGER. 2010 IS COMING SOON! AMERICA WILL NOT LET THIS STAND ............ IF THESE CONGRESSIONAL MORONS BELIEVE OTHERWISE ........ GOOD 4 THEM .......... THEIR EPITAPH WILL READ ....... DIDN'T LISTEN - WAS BRAIN DEAD AND RECALLED FOR STUPIDITY. ..............

Andy, here's my take on what happened at the meeting in Coupeville last night. Note that I did not stay for the entire event. Once I recognized that the event was tightly scripted and controlled, I left to seek other, less painful applications of my time.

Since Larsen doesn't spend much time in Anacortes and my schedule prevents me from attending the few Skagit County events he will conduct, I took advantage of the proximity and drove down to Coupeville last night and participated in that event. Even though the sponsor (League of Women Voters) professed bi-partisanship and neutrality on the issue, none of the 7 speakers were against a government option for health care and only one (Republican State Representative Barbara Bailey,) spoke out about not increasing taxes to pay for it.

The audience was not permitted to speak, but we were allowed to submit written questions. The first question was directed to Larsen and was, " I do not have the right to expect my neighbor to provide me with a meal to eat, a house to live in or a car to drive, so why should my neighbor have to pay for my health care?" Larson stood and began a long litany about cost increases, number of people uninsured, etc, etc...but he never answered the question. Several members of the audience yelled out "Answer the Question!" but Larsen just bagan to pontificate again, never answering the question. At that point, it was evident that the only communication that would be shared at the meeting was the script they had prepared. There would be no dialogue...and certainly no pesky questions answered. I got up and left, accompanied by several others in the audience. I noted that in the King 5 news coverage, others followed the example later in the program, when they grew tired of the BS from the panel of speakers.

It seems that the media and politicians are not interested in listening to the public. Instead, they are using their energy and communication outlets just to demonize those of us who have long been pleading for representation in government, but have only been screwed, by government and mainstream media.

Responses from folks who attended the Mount Vernon event

Before I left .... I did talk to the group out in front holding the banner that said "HEALTH CARE FOR ALL" - I ASKED THEM WHO - IN AMERICA - DID THEY KNOW THAT ARE DENIED HEALTH CARE? OF COURSE, THEY COULDN'T ANSWER ........ ONE GUY MEEKLY SAID "THE CHILDREN" --- I TOLD HIM HE WAS INCORRECT AND EXPLAINED THE "CHIP" PROGRAM ........... I TOLD THEM ABOUT MY 89 AND 85 YEAR OLD PARENTS WHO HAVE HAD NUMEROUS MEDICAL AND SURGICAL PROCEDURES AND HAVE NEVER - NEVER - EVER NOT HAD IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THIS COUNTRY'S GREATEST MEDICAL CARE. I TOLD THEM ABOUT NUMEROUS FRIENDS THAT HAVE HAD MULTIPLE ARTERIAL HEART BYPASSES WITHOUT WHICH WOULD HAVE THEM PUSHING UP DAISIES AT THIS TIME ... BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY - I ASKED THEM IF THEY HAD - IN FACT - READ THE BILL - OR AT LEAST READ THE DIABOLICAL "EXCERPTS" THAT ARE INCLUDED WITH THE INTENTION OF POWER OVER THE PEOPLE ONCE AND FOR ALL ............ OF COURSE ........ THEY HAD NOT NOR DID THEY WANT TOO.

Health Care Quiz: Questions for your Representative
flag_seperator.gif


1. Will we be forced to use doctors that are assigned to us by the government? Can theCongressman or Senator guarantee they will not vote for anything that will infringe on our ability to choose our own doctors?

2. Will we wind up with rationing of medicalservices as more and more people have access to government run health care? Can they guarantee they will not vote for anything that will result in rationing of medical services?

3. Will there be waiting lists for standard procedures and/or diagnosis necessary to be treated? Can they guarantee they will not vote for anything that will result in waiting lists for standard procedures and/or diagnosis?

4. If they insist on voting for socialized health care, will they immediately change their health insurance and their spouse and children's health insurance to the government option? If not, since the government run is supposed to be better than the current health care options, why won't they change it? Do they not have confidence in the plan's results?

5. Will our medical decisions be made by government employed bureaucrats or by doctors? Will the final decision rest between the doctor and the patient or will the final decision for treatment lie outside of the doctor patient relationship?

6. Will individuals be able to pay for treatment out of their own pocket or will they be required to have insurance, even if they do not want it? 7. Will they sign a pledge not to vote on any nationalized health care bill until they have it in hand - including all amendments - for at least 72 hours? 48 hours? 24 hours?

8. During the debate on the so-called stimulus package, the President's estimates on future unemployment and economic recovery proved to be wildly off-base. Why should Americans now believe that they will not be forced out of the private coverage they enjoy, as basic economics would dictate?

9. Despite the President's assertions that health care reform will save money, the reality is that plans proposed by Democrats would cost taxpayers between $1 trillion and $2 trillion. How does this save money and how will we pay for this?

10. If, as the President claims, a government run option is essential to maintaining honest competition in the health insurance market, why is it not also true that we need a government-run competitor in the fast food industry, neighborhood babysitting, or Major League Baseball?

11. Proponents of a government-run option claim that it will compete on a level playing field with private insurance providers. In that case, will the government-run plan operate under a for-profit model and be forced to pay all applicable state, federal, and local taxes?

12. How will we meet the growing need for physicians and medical professionals if the government-run plan pays lower than market rates to physicians while forcing them to participate or lose a majority of their patients and their livelihood?

13. If the government mandates that all Americans purchase health insurance, it must also define what qualifies as health insurance. Can you provide us your definition (with details please) and explain how this definition will not limit innovation and choice in health care?

14. According to the House Democrats' plan, a family of four with an income of $88,200, four times the federal poverty level, would qualify for health insurance subsidies. In your view, is this a subsidy for low-income Americans or an effort to use taxpayers to put more health care under the purview of the federal government?

15. The new Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research is charged with determining what treatments should be offered to patients. Do you believe that these personal medical decisions should be made by patients in consultation with their doctors, or by unaccountable bureaucrats?

16. Why are there no actively practicing physicians included in the membership of the Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research?

17. If the final reform proposal is controversial enough that it will not receive the necessary 60 votes in the Senate, Democrats have left open the possibility of using a procedural move to pass it with only 51 votes. Do you believe massive changes to such a vital area of American life should be pushed through in this manner with only 51 votes?
