If you have "no place to go," come here!

Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln ....

Jon Walker at FDL has a good analysis of what's wrong with the HCR bill. Read the whole thing, but here are the bullet points:

  1. Lack of Real Cost Control. This bill does not create real cost control and will not bring down premiums for most Americans. ...
  2. Dangerously Weak Enforcement. There are some good new regulations, but regulations are only as good as the strength of the agency tasked to enforce them. ...
  3. Individual [no-glossary]Mandate[/no-glossary]. The individual mandate, which uses the IRS to force people to buy a product from a poorly regulated, private industry, is an affront to the American people. ....
  4. Abortion. This bill is a massive rollback of a woman’s right to choose. It would take away the abortion coverage of millions of Americans. ....
  5. Lack of Health Insurance Competition. The bill will do almost nothing to address the problem of lack of competition in the health insurance market. ...
  6. Immigration. Under this almost-law, undocumented immigrants would not be allowed to buy insurance on the new exchanges, even if they are willing to pay the full cost of the insurance with their own money. This policy is not only cruel and immoral, but fiscally irresponsible. ....

Yay!
