Who's Writing The Fine Print

When a bill finally gets approved in congress who is writing the actual details of what is going on? How much will it differ from what we are being told? How much pork will be added to the bill to get votes? Is this where government takes control of the health care system, in the details of the bill written by staff or outside consultants or Apollo or Acorn? Is this part of the compromise between the Senate and the house over a Government Option? Are we going to get it no matter what we think is happening? Is it going to silently be put in the bill after the outline is rushed to a vote?

How can we tell we won't be covering illegal immigrants when we don't ask for proof of citizenship when we give out these new health care benefits?

Please remember that the devil is in the details, and when you open the door to the hen house, the fox will come in.

Watch your back. Don't expect any help from the congress unless you make your desires known. They have their own agenda and you the voting public are not number one on their list of priorities.

I'm tired of thinking one thing was voted on and then finding out we got something completely different when the details slowly come out. I'm tired of being outraged. I want congress to do what they say they are going to do.

We are not fools, as many members of congress are going to find out in the next election. Do what we put you in office to do - represent us and what we want, not what you want.
