18. There is an interesting point about loop holes.
Edited on Mon Aug-24-09 02:08 AM by RandomThoughts
Part of laws are what they are said to be, but most is how they are enforced. We have many laws that are ignored for profit or cover for the few. Many others are only used by discretion not for justice. If loop holes are created then used to wreck the process, it would be the same failings that were used to avoid following laws in last Administration.

We just wont know until the final bill is put together. And if passed, how it is enforced. The article is correct a messed up bill would fit GOP and Bush governance strategy, do it so badly that people think government is useless. Many of GOP strategies are to make government work bad, or fail. While not talking about the failures of the private sector.

And the fix by the secret unorthodox methods of how Finance committee has been said that their one bill is more important then the other four bills by most of the media, and how it is not the full committee seems to be one group seemingly trying to take over the process, and many in media making it seem that way by saying it means more then it does.

I agree people should not be forced to have to stay with broken insurance, I was thinking that was just so public option could ramp up, since hundreds of millions jumping to public option in first few months could create a ramp up issue.

If what the article said about people having to take a crap policy is true, that would be wrong. Any mandate that forces a person to pay for lobbying against people is just plain wrong.

It would make sense that a mandate should only apply to people that could choose what type of program they wanted to be in.

If the public option is fake, it would not be a public option.
