House Democrats Health Care Talking Points Cheat Sheet

Note just the first point about increases in health care costs. 1) The Democratic controlled CBO says that their proposed changes will increase costs even more than they are already likely to increase. 2) The government regulations are already responsible for much of the increase in insurance costs. 3) The way that the Dems bill will be paid by reducing reimbursements to doctors and hospitals for Medicaid and Medicare will only increase private insurance costs even more.
Second point: Look at the surveys that show Americans are overwhelmingly happy with their insurance programs.
Third point: Does anyone think that the government can do things at a lower cost than private companies? Instead of people paying premiums they will pay taxes. The costs won't go away.

**************

Many years ago, an audience member on an afternoon TV talk show was complaining about the cost of something or other. His statement was, "The people shouldn't pay for this, the government should pay!"

If you think healthcare is expensive now, wait until it's free.
