this is my first post since my tripe from Europe. I'm going to start of with health care since this is the big issue. I want to turn you attention to HR 3200. This is the recent health care legislation that was approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Title II Subtitle B is where it briefly talks about a public health plan, but it doesn't got in to a lot of detail. As of now, my only objection to a public health plan is the subsidize to the public plan. If the public plan would receive no subsidize, no government financial help and compete like a private plan, then I would have not objection. But I plan that can reduce their price because of government subsidize would not be fair private insurance and would lead to government monopoly.
Next I want to turn you attention to Title IV A) part III Sec.401. This is a Tax on individuals with out health insurance. If you don't pay your taxes, you could be arrested. So if an individual can be arrested for being without health insurance. This are my concerns with this health insurance plans. I'm prochoice. I believe its women's right to have an abortion. Thus, for me to support a individual mandate to get health insurance would me a conflict to me. There for I'm oppose to this plan.
