reading the HR health care bill
« on: August 06, 2009, 04:03:47 PM »
i was going to read this and pick the pages that i thought were most important.  as i go through it, it appears that you need to read all starting with page 16.  earlier pages are summary and not so important.

please take time to see what they are going to do to us.  i suspect you will be surprised, and probably angry....

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
