What the socialized health care proposal can do for you!

Here's the full Health Care bill that sits in the House. Here is a link to the House Bill, H.R.3200. It's a long read!

The following information was forwarded to me from a blogger in Montana. If you're even curious about whether the proposed socialized health care is good for us as citizens, as a nation you might want to look at the comments made by Peter Fleckstein as Peter wades through the 1,000 plus pages of the bill. He's taken the time to analyze in layman terms what the bill is all about.

Here's some of his comments he "tweeted" over the past several days:

Peter Fleckstein (aka Fleckman) is reading it and has been posting on Twitter his findings. I'm not sure who Peter is but I will google him after I make this post. This is from his postings (Note: All comments are Fleckman's)

And Peter's not done!!! How in the hell can we expect our political representatives to adequately represent us when they're advocating crap like what's been divulged in this proposed bill so far?

Peter hasn't even got half way through the bill! And look at the common language, plain text explanations of what's being proposed.

Folks, THIS IS SERIOUS!!! I don't know about you but I for one don't want to lose my current coverage, doctor and existing health plan. I also don't want a bunch of fat cat politicos who think they're my supreme advisor making decisions for me that will eventually affect my and my family's quality of life.

I don't want our employees, those who were selected by us, the fine citizens of this fantastic nation to stuff an ill advised, socialized, dangerous health care bill down our throats against our will!

Those senators, representatives and other drones back there in Washington D.C. had better WAKE UP and LISTEN! They work for US! We sent them back to that political circus to get things done that we want done! Not what they think needs to be done even though we, the citizens are against it!

I say NO! to this health care reform bill! NO! to any politico who supports it! NO! to the Brian Bairds, Patty Murrays, Adam Smiths, Arlen Specters, Nancy Pelosis, Ted Kennedys, Howard Deans, Jim McDermotts, Barney Franks, Barbara Boxers, Joe Bidens, Barry Obamas and all others who insist they know what's best for us! NO! to those who support this bill!

I am not a political terrorist. I am not a Nazi. I am not a racist! I am not politically inclined! I am not a hooligan! I am in fact, more patriotic than you, our elected politicos evidently!. I am a blue collar, well educated, average, everyday, hard working, taxpaying, proud American family man, a citizen of this fine, fine United States of America! I don't need some political fat cat so far removed from my life, my existence to force feed me something I don't want for me or my family!

It appalls me to see some of these politicos who thought for years that they're untouchable try to belittle and degrade the very citizens of this country who elected them into that fat cat job they have in the first place. Where's that REPRESENTATION we were promised when you first campaigned and were elected into your office by us, the citizens of this fine nation!

Just because some of us speak out against your foolhardy, politically inclined socialist plans doesn't mean we're unpatriotic, racists, radicals, terrorists, nazis who have nothing better to do than complain and disrupt your process of gaining control.

We're done with you. We're speaking out and we're demanding answers. You work for US! Don't abandon your morals to gain control! Do what's right for once and listen to the citizens that put you where you are! Drop this socialized nonsense... health care reform, immigration, cap and trade, bailouts, etc. Drop this stuff and work on something real, something that will positively affect this country, us citizens as a whole!

If you want health care reform start focusing on TORT REFORM! Limit the damages awarded to attorneys and their clients when it comes to malpractice lawsuits! Tighten the rules and protect the health care we currently have. Reduce the costs of drugs by sharing the costs of development with the rest of the world. Provide free or reduced priced health care to those who truly need it but don't take away what's already here! Don't deprive my family and I of the health care I currently have!

Finally, if you're going to shove it down our throats... if you still insist on that politicos then abandon your health care that we provide to you and sign on to the plan you're proposing and insisting is better for us, the general population!

I say vote them all out and start over!

This whole health care reform idea currently on the table is a fiasco. It's poorly authored, caters to special interest groups, establishes unwarranted and dangerous controls on the lives of the fine citizens of this country and is wrought with greed, contempt and corruption!
