The Party of "No".

"So tick off the top three points of the Republican plan for, for healthcare reform." - David Gregory, Host of Meet the Press.

"You start with junk lawsuits against doctors and hospitals, interstate competition among insurance companies... equalizing the tax code. Right now if you're a corporation and you provide insurance for your employees, you get to deduct it on your corporate tax return. But if you're an individual on the individual market, you don't. Step-by-step to work on the cost problem. That's what Republicans are willing to do."

"Expanding coverage is a good idea. But even under this $2.5 trillion monstrosity, they still didn't end up covering everybody. That is easier said than done. But if you equalize the tax code, you make it more possible for more people who are currently uninsured to, to purchase insurance. Right now they have no tax incentive to do it." - Senator Mitch McConnell, R-KY

So I support health care reform. I just don't support this bill.
