H.R.3200: Read the Bill!

2009 August 12

Yesterday at Wizbang, I found some links Kevin posted to H.R.3200.  It can be read online at Thomas or if you really, really want to download it, here is the PDF link.

To help navigate through it, here are Peter Fleckenstein’s tweets on the bill which he collected into one post:

The HC Monstrosity-All 1,018 Pages

Of course, you never know what they’ll do with it in conference!

BTW, this morning on Fox & Friends they mentioned that in 1975, the #1 hit was the Bee Gees’ Jive Talkin’ !

“It’s just you jive talkin’
you’re telling me lies, yeah,
Jive talkin’
you wear a disguise,
Jive talkin’,
so misunderstood,
Jive talkin’
You’re really no good.”

UPDATE: Jim Treacher has come up with a new song, which considering yesterday’s town hall in New Hampshire, is certainly descriptive!

Please Mr. Postman (ObamaCare Remix)

Oh yes, wait a minute, Mr. Postman
Way-ay-ay-ait, Mr. Postman

Please, Mr. Postman, look and see
If I qualify for surgery
I’ve been waiting a mighty long time
Just to hear from that doctor of mine

There must be some word today
About my much-needed hospital stay
Please, Mr. Postman, look and see
What are my chances of mortality?

Go read the rest of the lyrics!

    To those effete and pusillanimous “conservative” talking heads who have slammed the fiesty opposition of citizens to government take over of healthcare, hopefully the following will shut their stupid yappers:

    Gallup: Public Support for Health Care Drops 21 Points in Four Weeks (UPDATED)

    Thanks for the poll, Reggie.

    Rasmussen had these out:

    32% Favor Single-Payer Health Care, 57% Oppose

    On Health Care, 51% Fear Government More Than Insurance Companies

    Support for Congressional Health Care Reform Falls to New Low

    Public support for the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats has fallen to a new low as just 42% of U.S. voters now favor the plan. That’s down five points from two weeks ago and down eight points from six weeks ago.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that opposition to the plan has increased to 53%, up nine points since late June.

    More significantly, 44% of voters strongly oppose the health care reform effort versus 26% who strongly favor it. Intensity has been stronger among opponents of the plan since the debate began.

    Sixty-seven percent (67%) of those under 30 favor the plan while 56% of those over 65 are opposed. Among senior citizens, 46% are strongly opposed.

    Predictably, 69% of Democrats favor the plan, while 79% of Republicans oppose it. Yet while 44% of Democratic voters strongly favor the reform effort, 70% of GOP voters are strongly opposed to it.

    Most notable, however, is the opposition among voters not affiliated with either party. Sixty-two percent (62%) of unaffiliated voters oppose the health care plan, and 51% are strongly opposed. This marks an uptick in strong opposition among both Republicans and unaffiliateds, while the number of strongly supportive Democrats is unchanged.

    My emphasis–the passion and momentum is with those who are opposed!

    INC, it seems the momentum is with us. It’s a shame to see so-called conservatives try to throw cold water on it.

    momentum IS with us…but the media continues to pretend otherwise. This is a staggering betrayal by the “4th Estate”…and one that I believe the American people are waking up to. We’ll see.
