House Democrats have finally completed their version of a health care reform bill.  The announcement was made moments ago by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  The details of this mammoth bill – 1,990 pages – has finally been released for review and can be found at this link:  H.R. Health Care Reform Bill. 

One of the more interesting aspects of the announcement was the comment by House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer (D-MD) who said “befitting the importance of this legislation, the process of putting it together has been deliberative, transparent and open…”.  Considering that the negotiations for this House version of a health care reform bill have been done in secret in very overt and “in-your-face” closed-door sessions, with NO Republican or Independent input at all, Mr. Hoyer’s statement sounds absurd! 

Is the Democratic leadership so cocooned in their own perceived reality that they actually believe their own spin?  Or do they think that the American people are just stupid enough to believe any sound bite they hear?  Either way, Hoyer’s statement and the stealthy process in which this bill was developed are an insult to all Americans. 

Everyone agrees that some “reform” or “updating” of our health care system is needed.  However, the Democrats have determined that neither the Republicans, the Independents, nor the American people have the right to decide, moreover to even discuss, what options could be tried. 

To Mrs. Pelosi and Mr. Hoyer – you have finally achieved the status you have been working toward…dictatorship.  You have become tyrants.  You are a disgrace to our country and to the positions that you hold (on behalf of the people, I might remind you).  We can only pray that your “Ides” may come sooner than March.
