Before you condemn the woman for her harsh treatment of the young man on the end, consider this: He has a big problem with placing a burden on his parents, yet he has no problem placing that same burden multiplied by 40,000,000 (their own estimates) upon the mothers and fathers and small businesses, across this nation; has no problem with placing a special tax on other people's grandfathered private insurance options; has no problem with making those who don't want insurance to pay for it anyway.

She then goes on to make some valid points about the lack of fiscal responsibility contained in the bill.

The claim that she has "more empathy for the insurance companies" is absurd. The government will cut all the payments to the private plans for an "unspecified amount of time" which effectively cuts of insurance to the people on that plan until they can change.

Congress and others seem to love demonizing companies and let their glee at doing so override any concern for the people who are serviced by those companies, and for the people employed by these companies.

Never forget, that when legislation is enacted that will harm a big evil company, that those "big evil companies" employ big numbers of people. Make sure you're facts are on and your grip is legit.

The senator resorts to profanity in his bitterness towards insurance companies.

He then parrots the line that private employer based insurance will not be destroyed. However, Section 102, grants control over that plan to the government. The bill further levies special taxes against these private plans, and, coupled with taxpayer-funding for the "public option" will artificially deflate the price of it, and run people out of the private options. Eventually those remaining in them will not be great enough numbers to sustain the service and the plan will be closed, bumping people into the public system. There Mr. Senator, that's where your pet bill will kill private options.
