The big misunderstanding in this whole thing is the “trying to explain their position”. Can someone please teach these politicians that they do not have a position - their position is that of the people. They are sent to Washignton to enact the will of the people, not push a Usurping Marxist’s agenda. I’m pretty convinced the MAJORITY (you know the class that decides in a majority rule DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC) do not want this.

co-sponsored the Healthy Americans Act, which would grant individuals, instead of employers, substantial tax deductions to use to purchase insurance in the marketplace. Everyone would be required to have insurance, but the government would subsidize those with low incomes. Employers would be required to increase wages to replace what they were spending on health insurance. And insurers could not deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions.

While this is far more preferrable than the outright fascism of the House bill, it is still idiotic. I get relatively cheap health insurance from my employer because they get group rates. And if everyone is required to have coverage, and pre-existing conditions cannot be a factor, they rates will absolutely skyrocket.
