Origins:

This line-item criticism of a proposed Congressional health care reform bill originally circulated anonymously in mid-2009; it was not cast as a letter to Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana nor did it become attributed to a Dr. Stephen E. Frazer of Indianapolis until several months later.

This item references an older version of the health care reform bill, not the version actually passed by the House of Representatives in November 2009 (although they share many common elements).

Many of the claims this item makes about health care reform legislation are erroneous.

well i figured as much... it wasnt very descriptive either so i had a suspicion that it might be scued...

anyways, i personally think that no matter what legislation is proposed in the house or senate, that each voting member should be required to read it personally (and not one of their assistants) before they are allowed to vote on it. HC bill or any other bill for that matter...

but then when would they have time to wave at the crowd and sip their brandy in private...

It would seem reasonable, but if you have ever been on the hill you know that each house or senate member has to juggle being present for votes with attending committee meetings because it all happens simultaneously. One person may have to attend a critical meeting relating to defense, which means they donít show up for vote. Another might skip a meeting and vote in exchange for another person to vote at another time. The whips keep track of it all and they attempt to get work done this way. Even in this impossible situation, many will take the time to talk with you if you simply show up at their office at a good time. Having readers is not a luxury. Having said that, they probably should spend more time in session, but the people in the home states donít seem to like that much either as they demand near constant hand holding.
