Vote Now and Read Later

I'm still amazed how there can be so much lobbying for a bill that no one has yet seen. All we do know is that the Senate-passed healthcare bill continues to be a lot of smoke and mirrors, fails to address root causes of health insurance costs increases, and will result in new fees, taxes, and mandates on employers and individuals alike, and that is what would become law should the House pass anything this week and the Senate fails to make good on a politically damaging reconciliation bill. HARDI members have sent over 500 letters to the Hill in the last week alone urging opposition to the Senate bill, the use of reconciliation in the Senate, and to start over on a real reform bill that will actually reduce costs and increase accessibility.
