I applaud you and your husbands efforts. I am a physician and I am also giving public talks against 0bamacare. I believe that the illegal “receoncilation” process facilitated by the Slaughter rule contains even worse provisions than the Senate bill. The mandate penalties in the reconciled bill are percentage based on income and would be much higher than the flat Senate $750/2250 penalties. There is also a more overt provision for a public option.
We should also explore the silver lining if 0bamacare is passed and after rules come out. There are exemptions for religious objectors, undocumented immigrants, hardship cases, Indian tribes. I believe that if 0bamacare passes, we must examine these rules, create organizations that allow persons to claim exemptions and challenge this legislation on this basis.
Thanks for the added input and the link. We need to continue to work together on this.
