Frelinghuysen: Repeal is no 'stunt'

Rep. Frelinghuysen repeats Republican talking points and reveals that he is out of touch with people. Because the health care reform law was a compromise, there are aspects of it that many of us don't like, but that doesn't remove the fact that most Americans are one job loss away from being unable to access the health care system that he defends. I am amazed at the folks who defend the status quo and regard this bill as a threat - do they not realize that the health insurance they enjoy through their job is as tenuous as a pink slip? Perhaps they don't realize that to keep insurance they'd have to pay for "COBRA" which is probably more than their mortgage payment monthly?(So which will it be, a roof over your head, or health insurance?) And that unless they're pretty young, it's more than likely that they have a pre-existing condition that would bar their entry into the individual insurance market? Instead of the canard that the bill is "government takeover" of health care, which it most assuredly is not - the government will not "run" any health care under this bill - how about admitting that it is a government solution to a problem that the marketplace hasn't solved? Keeping medical care just the way it is for the people it's working for, at the expense of the Americans who are completely shut out through no fault of their own, isn't American. And it is even less of a good idea when you realize that most of us are extremely close to falling into that hole.
Even if it did cost more (and the CBO says it will cost less, despite Rep. Frelinghuysen's protestations), I'm one American who would rather pay that money to see most people have an option, than pay it to health insurance company CEOS ($28 million, Aetna CEO?) to continue to live on the edge.
