ABC News Gets It Wrong On Health
Care Bill H.R. 3200 Charlie Gibson
Calls Speech Against The Bill,
"Rhetoric" August 11,
news has a "FACT" segment of the evening news that took on the
opponents of the H.R. 3200 Health Care bill.
reporter spoke of the opponents of the bill, saying
that we speak of page 16 of the bill, as proof that we
will not be able to keep our private health insurance
At first, I was excited, to think that ABC news
was actually going to show that, which many of us know is on page 16
of the bill. Then the reporter went on to speak only of a spot
on page 17, instead of reading a word from page 16 and declared
our claims, "false."
Just about coming out of my skin,
I got on the phone with ABC news. After leaving a rather upset
message for one man, I found myself talking with, who appeared
to me to be a high up person in the news source. The man,
Bradley, calmed me a bit, when he came across as
caring and asked me to show him what I was talking about. So,
we both brought up H.R. 3200 on our screens.
I showed him
that page 16 puts limitations on our private health insurance
companies that will force them to fold and won't allow for new
Page 16 says that our current health insurance
companies, outside of dependents of current customers, cannot take
on new customers. This means that people, seeking new private health
care insurance, will not be allowed to get such a plan, because no
existing plan will be allowed to take them on.
Page 16 also
says that, outside of changes that the law says our current health
insurance companies have to make, they cannot make any new
changes. This means that the government would take
away the control of our private insurance companies, from
the companies. This would force them to fold, from lack of
Bradley expressed that there could be new private
companies that would allow for new customers. I told him that, such
is not in the bill. He said, "But it's not, not in the bill."
Logic says, if our current private health insurance
companies are not allowed to take on new customers, that there would
be no new companies that would be allowed to, either. Allowing new
companies to and not old ones would be discrimination, by our
government. Also, I want my company to be able to take on new
customers, so that it can grow and thrive in the market. I also
want my company to be able to make needed changes, as we
the customers show need for. Basically, I don't want the government
to take my private health insurance company's liberties away, and I
don't want mine taken away, either.
Calls Our Views, "Rhetoric"
suppose, by now I should expect the evening news to be one-sided.
But I keep holding out; thinking that they may some day, see that
the government has used them against the American people and that if
we go down, so do they.
But, one of the first things out of
Charlie Gibson's mouth was to call the views of us, who are against
the bill, "Rhetoric."
Perhaps Charlie should have stayed on
Good Morning America. He was so adorable and lovable in those
days. But, ever since he has shown his liberal side, I have to
say, I just don't like him
