Dear Governor Pataki,
Propose the 28th Amendment, stating that Congress will be compensated the AVERAGE income of their constituency. Pay Federal taxes at the same rates as their constituency. Receive the same Health care as their constituency, be able to receive a pension based on a 30 year career in a real world profession not based on terms served in Congress. Members of Congress will be excluded from accepting any position within a lobbyist / Special Interest, or Government employment no less than 10 years after End Term of Service in Congress.

This may very well be why Obama won the key states:

See what you can do to get the ball rolling on this:
I think Congress should form a 10,000 member team to verify EVERY vote that was cast in the last election. The simplest way would be to broadcast that anyone that had lied on the voter registration that came forward and confessed, would be granted amnesty in the third degree felony. If they do not come forward, they will be prosecuted if found.
Please respond!

The solution is simple, make congress' health plan available to all CITIZENS -OR- place AFFORDABLE limits on fees in the CURRENT public health care forum. Take away their right to refuse coverage. I have to pay every month, no matter what, why shouldn't they be required to do the same? I have excellent dental coverage, but I still have over $2k in work needed, my husband has $2k in work needed and 2 of my kids require braces...we cannot afford this on $75k/year! Sounds like a lot, but it doesn't cover our needs. Why won't congress help the middle class? Because we don't have lobbyists?

I Totally agree. The United States Government has no business in our personal lives especially our health care. The government knows nothing about health care.Health care is best handled by those who know what the hell they are doing. Government controlled health care will end up killing people with shitty coverage, delayed benefits,etc....

Amen. Get the Government OUT OF HEALTHCARE! How many decades of Medicare, Medicaid, etc will it take for Americans to wake up and realize that not ONLY has government NOT increased access, but have actually been party to driving UP the price!?

I think there are a lot of good things in the bill, but it didn't go far enough. If it ever were to be replaced, it should be with universal medical care - Medicare for all.

The private sector is what made us the worst health care system in the industrialized world. That's right, you heard me, the worst in terms of outcome and expenditures.

necessities (granted that is relative). Leave the majority of it to the states. We are a very generous of people in country. We have proven this time after time. Millions of dollars given over and over again. If allowed to donate (or tithe) their money to help support programs in their own states instead paying billions in taxes and having the government dole it out, states would be very self sufficient.

sdwesthoff Posted 6 years ago
Amen!!! The government is no longer of the people, for the people. It controls the people. I personally think the constitution in is most basic original form gives individual rights to the people and the STATES. Why do they have to fund private businesses like Planned Parenthood, or define marriage or fund education, housing, foodstamps, medicaid or anything else? Why shouldnt we have a flat federal tax to pay for

Repeal Obanana Bill, burn it, shred it, cook it, and take that money to save Social Security and Medicare!!! And, get rid of Fannie and Freddie Mac, which started us down this road to ruin!!

We have Tricare (my husband is retired Air Force). Hmmm. Congress opted Tricare out of insuring my 21 to 26 year olds (but it is mandatory for the rest of the country). So my boys, one who is diabetic, have not have ins. for a year. They are both unemployed. They now (a year later) are offering a young adult program for $186.00 a month premium, but they are funding Planned Parenthood so Harry Reids female family

It is clear to all that this bill has nothing to do with actual healthcare and everything to do with control. If govt can force you to buy insurance what is next? Priuses,vegetables,Obummers books,etc. We are not mindless idiots that need so called experts to make decisions for us, Stand up for your rights and freedom before it is all taken away

If you don't have medical insurance and get sick.......I end of paying your bill. If you take a look at any hospital's billing practices you will see they add 20% to your bill to cover the uninsured.

Just like with auto insurance...lucky me I get to pay for uninsured motorists on my policy.

When the private sector fails....government steps in to balance the scales of justice. Anyone with and I.Q. over 70 will agree that the insurance industry in this country has failed.

The simple fact is that when insurance is tied to work you lose. You can pay your premiums for 20, 30, 40 years and than lose your insurance when your health fails and can no longer work.

Why is it that I can purchase life, car, homeowner insurance as an individual but not health???? Taken as a whole the population of american people are a pretty large pool.!!!

Why not repeal mandatory car insurance first, or mandatory mortgage insurance, or any insurance that is mandatory? I cannot understand why one type of insurance should be repealed and not every kind.

Because the States and or counties provide the roads you drive on and therefor require the users to purchase insurance. They do not require you to buy a car to drive.

I believe that car insurance should be mandatory because a driver could hurt or kill another innocent person and the gjuilty person should pay. I don't believe that mortgage insurance should be mandatory.

The private insurance industry is why the costs are so high now. How on earth do you think they would do a better job? Medicare works very well. Why not have Medicare for all?

There are several plans and ideas that would be much better than the fed. gov. takeover. Let the private sector handle it. This is not the gov. job. Tort reform and being able to buy from any and all ins. co. in all states. Competition and free enterprise.
