We cannot afford to pass legislation again “so that you can find out what’s in it.”
The effect of this law, were it actually enacted, would be the death of the health insurance industry.
For more than a century, government involvement in American medicine has moved in a single direction: more spending, more bureaucrats, and more government power over the most intimate details of our daily lives.

The loving hand of government-controlled medical care will always come to this: brute force, setting some groups of citizens against others, and medical care subordinated to the demands of a political spoils system.
