    In another thread started by Robert Snow, he asked "In all the things said in the past, what is the specifics that cause you alarm in this health care bill" there were 44 responses. (as of 12 Noon - Tues 23 Mar)

    I am going to recap them in this thread:

    1. Unless specifically prohibited, abortion!
    2. It is not the responsibility of the Federal Govt to provide health care.
    3. There will be no way reasonably to pay for this unending program
    4. The system will be abused by users
    5. ...if it's so great, let congress go on it.
    6...it sets up an unfair competition--private insurers (otherwise known
    as "evil,") have to make money. The government, by law, must lose
    all the money it can (not really, but it seems that way).
    Business oses, every time.
    7. The mandate, along with the threat of fines and jail time. Along
    with the fact that the zero thinks absolutely nothing of breaking
    his promises, and his sheep follow without one word of criticism.
    8. Maybe it is all the backroom wheeling and dealing that even
    the liberal biased media said to day that was going on behind
    closed doors.
    9. Maybe it is the fact that several in Congress have called this
    the skeleton of things to come. That was democrats by the way.
    10 Maybe it is the fact that the majority of Americans are against it.
    11 Maybe it is the fact that "O" is for it.
    12 ==Specifics? It is unconstitutional and therefore illegal.
    13 Lied about the cost , coverage, and impact.
    14 They tell the truth and this piece of anti American trash never
    gets to the floor.
    15 Eventual complete government control of the health
    insurance industry.
    16. Rationing of care
    17. That my family may lose our coverage and have to go to the
    vastly inferior government plan
    18. That the government has taken away the option of
    obtaining student loans from private lenders
    19 That it requires citizens to purchase a product and threatens
    them if they don't.
    20 Huge deficit spending and more borrowing are not smart
    when unemployment is above 10%.
    21 Why the threats, why the sweetheart deals
    22 how much it will go up when pre-existing conditions by
    the thousands are thrown in all at once.
    23 ...an insurance company is going to be forced to lose money,
    they'll just drop your group like a hot potatoe.
    24 The government doesn't trust me enough to provide for my
    own family in the way that I see fit
    25 democrats ... didn't incorporate any of the republican ideas.
    ... see the option for consumers to purchase insurance
    across state lines, ... choose their insurance in an ala-cart
    manner instead of taking what is chosen for them.
    26 ...with fines that jump to the hundreds over the next few years
    27 The only thing I'll say is that this bill is truly the beginning
    of the end of freedom.
    28 when the government starts deciding who deserves loans to
    go to college and who doesn't.
