THE WORST PIECE OF LEGISLATION IN MY LIFETIME

This so called 'health care reform' looks like it is going to create far more problems then it fixes. Premiums are almost certainly going to go up, the only question is how much.

The combination of $750 fine for not having health insurance, and removal of preexising conditions, is simply going to lead to large numbers of healthy, young people opting out and paying their fine, and then getting insurance once they're sick. That will drive up the cost to insurance companies, which will be passed on to us.

REFORM IS A TRIUMPH OF PROCESS OVER PRUDENCE

We are talking about something that once implemented will be hard to ever undue, like social security. The way this bill was passed (middle of the night, Christmas week, no time to read managers amendment, payoffs to buy votes) shows that President Obama and Reid didn't have faith that the bill could pass on its own merits.

They didn't have faith in their Senators to take a three week recess and get assailed by their constituents who would tell them they didn't want them voting for this bill.

If Obama and Reid had faith in their bill, they would have given the Senators weeks to discuss, debate and amend it before voting on it.
