Health Care: Who Has Read the Fine Print?

Editor’s note: How many in Congress do you think have actually read the bill? If these things are actually enacted, who is going to be accountable for the outcome? You and I as we get our health care in the future will be paying the price in more ways than one.

In CNN Money Shawn Tully warns about “5 freedoms you’d lose in health care reform.” He says, “page by page, the bills reveal a web of restrictions, fines, and mandates that would radically change your health-care coverage.” He summarizes his article by saying, “If you prize choosing your own cardiologist or urologist under your company’s Preferred Provider Organization plan (PPO), if your employer rewards your non-smoking, healthy lifestyle with reduced premiums, if you love the bargain Health Savings Account (HSA) that insures you just for the essentials, or if you simply take comfort in the freedom to spend your own money for a policy that covers the newest drugs and diagnostic tests — you may be shocked to learn that you could lose all of those good things under the rules proposed in the two bills that herald a health-care revolution.”
