If you get the chance you might wish to ask your congressperson a few questions about the health care reform bill he or she will be voting on this fall:
- Has the congressman (or woman) actually read and studied the bill?
- Will the bill result in a single payer system?
- Will the bill result in rationing of care and longer wait times?
- Will the bill reduce medicare benefits?
- Does the bill open the door for the elderly and infirm to be pressured into accepting death?
- Will the bill pay for health care for illegal aliens?
- Will the bill pay for abortions?
- Will the bill require that abortions be provided by objector institutions like Catholic hospitals?
- Will the bill vastly increase the deficit?
- Will the bill require congressmen (and women) to participate in the same program as the rest of us?
- Will the bill cause our taxes to go up?
The fact is that for most of our elected representatives the answer to the first question is "no," and according to almost everyone who has read the bill the answer to the other ten questions is "yes." It's no wonder people are irate about it.RLC
