But It Is Not A Government Run Plan

Time and again the left tells us that the health care bill will be a public option[1] (option would mean a choice but it is mandatory) and that it is not government run. This is the way they are trying to sell the bill of goods. No, the government will not be running anything.

Only problem is that every time they defend the bill they call it a government run program. Nancy Pelosi was out bashing the insurance companies in order to drum up support. Pelosi stated that the insurance companies are villains and are trying to stop the government run plan. She claims the villains are treating people badly (as if forced hospice is not a worse fate) and that they want to continue business as usual. These evil insurance companies are trying to thwart the efforts of the benevolent government and its desire to run nanny state health care.

Around 80% of people with private insurance are happy with what they have so the companies must not be too terribly bad. Matter of fact, Pelosi has private insurance (as do all the other members of Congress). That’s right, Pelosi and her ilk all have private insurance.

To top it off, members of Congress will be exempt from the government program. Only three Democrats voted for a provision requiring them to take the option along with everyone else.

Seems that the insurance villains are not so bad that Pelosi and the others want to ditch them for government run health care. No, they will keep what they have, all provided with our tax dollars and from private insurance companies.

If it is not good enough for the people who work for us then it is not good enough for us.

With regard to Pelosi, the word hypocrite comes to mind.

    When the dorks in Congress vote to have the same Health plan they want for us, I will consider it- until then they need to shut up, sit down, and do something realistic.

    More rubbish.

    Can Pelosi’s congressional insurance plan deny her because of pre-existing conditions?

    Of course not.

    Can I receive Pelosi’s plan without working for the federal government?

    Of course not.

    So you are playing word games.

      Does Pelosi’s plan include Botox Beyond Belief? I want my face frozen in that perpetual expression of surprise too, but I bet that was an unfortunate accident.
      Why does she not have biohazard labels all over her? She’s a walking toxic waste dump, the first person designated as a Superfund site.

      Sure you can have that insurance- just pay for it.
      Money talks, BS walks.

    You can receive Pelosi’s plan without working for the Federal government. Go to the OPM and look up the health plans that the government offers. Go to those companies and buy insurance.

    You can have the insurance that members of Congress have, you will probably have to pay more.

    People seem to think that Congress has a mythical plan. They pay for private health insurance just like all other federal employees and all other workers who have employers that provide health insurance. You can have it, you just have to pay for it.

    Many employer offered plans do not have a pre-existing condition clause if it is part of a group plan.

    So yes, you can have the plan and pre existing is not a problem.
