The main reason why the health care bill is bad for the united states public.

Health Care Bill

It still covers abortion. This is an affront to millions of Americans who believe that abortion is murder. It still mandates that everyone purchase health insurance. This is anti-American. Small businesses will be required to pay up to 72% of an employee’s health care coverage or face an 8% tax penalty. Individuals will be fined up to $250,000 or jailed for refusing to buy insurance. Millions of Americans will not go along with this program and thus it will criminalize innocent Americans. It still leaves people uninsured. Estimates project that even under the best circumstances at least 24 million Americans will be left uncovered. Remaking and reshaping 1/6 of our economy is supposedly being done to leave no one uninsured. There must be a deeper political agenda to ramming this legislation through since it will not achieve what the American people are told it will accomplish.It still covers illegal immigrants. Allowing millions of immigrants who entered this country illegally to have access to health care will open the floodgates for millions of others to flock into this country. It still has end of life counseling. The President and those pushing for this bill can try and deny this reality but the truth is this bill intends to deny the elderly coverage and help usher in their death should they be in a bad state of health. It still leads to rationed care. There is no way around the fact that this bill will lead to rationed care, long lines, and long waits. There is no possible way that millions of new patients can be put into the current system without causing a back-log. Many doctors practicing medicine will simply retire or call it quits under this new system because they won’t want to be a part of a federally controlled, federally regulated, federally mandated system. This fact alone will cause delays and rationed care because there will be an immediate shortage of doctors. Socialized medicine is a failure in every country.The true cost of the bill is grossly underestimated. There is not one government program anyone can point to that is being run the way it was originally intended to operate. Social Security and Medicare are just two examples. The government always underestimates costs so they can get bills passed. These are just a few reason why the Health care bill should not be passed and must have major aspect changed in order to truly help the United States public
