I think it's futile to debate legislation that no one (including Congress who voted for it) read. Throwing money at a problem always seems to be the answer, not execution. If money solves everything, why are our US schools in such bad shape? The Dept of Education's budget has doubled in 4 years to $159 BILLION. That money is doing jack shit as the rest of the world surpasses us in quality and test scores. The bad thing about this health care reform is that there's no turning back. Government is self-serving and would rather ruin our economy than to cut back. Checks and balances are laughable considering you have the government monitoring itself.
