Senate bill weighs in at 2,074 pages


Don’t hold your breath to read this one online either. Dirty Harry Reid snuck a few gems into this one that we are slowly finding out about. He’s as sneaky as Pelosi, and don’t think for a minute that the backroom deals aren’t happening. Regardless of what old Harry says, it is not deficit neutral, it will not lower insurance costs, and it will bankrupt our country. Call your Senators now and tell them that you will not support them if they vote for this bill. This site will list all of them for you. http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm 

They work for you, not the other way around.

In the Battle of the Health Bills, the Senate wins out, bulk-wise – weighing in at 2,074 pages.

The House health reform bill was a mere 1,990 pages when introduced.

That means the Senate bill — like the one in the House — runs more pages than War and Peace, and has nearly five times as many words as the Torah.

 The table of contents alone is 14 pages.

“Read the bill!” was a rallying cry of some health reform opponents over the summer. And if Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) gets his way, senators will get a chance to hear every word of it. He’s threatening to the read the legislation from start to finish, which by some estimates could take as long as 48 hours.
