Adding to the confusion about such reform is a question about when this bill could even be passed by the Congress. For example, the president's own press secretary Robert Gibbs is talking about a goal for the House passing reform by March 18th. On the other hand, the Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has backed away from that date. Hoyer was quoted in a CNN.com article as saying that "None of us has mentioned the 18th, other than Mr Gibbs." Both Gibbs and Hoyer are both strong advocates for reform and yet, they do not seem to be communicating with each other over a possible vote schedule. If two primary advocates for reform can not communicate on this small item, can we really trust the Democratic party to manage massive health care reform and the consequences of it?[# More #]
President Obama is demanding a final vote on Obamacare before the members of the House and Senate return home for the Easter recess, which begins March 29.
Whatever your views on the merits of the variety of health care reform proposals that collectively have been debated over the course of the past 15 months, you should be offended and repulsed by this schedule.
Why? Because there is no bill to look at and debate; no text to read; no budget estimate to examine for its assumptions and calculations.
