Meet the Mob

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Obama are very concerned about the far right wing loons who have been intimidating innocent Democratic Party congresscritters by going to the town hall meetings and complaining. Some of these evil protesters are even carrying signs protesting the government takeover of healthcare that the Democrats are trying to do.

This blogger has done a patriotic job of labelling the sorts of wicked right wingers who have been protesting:

I know it's very annoying when the filthy peasants appear outside the door of the manor house whining about things; but as a helpful reminder to Speaker Pelosi I've quoted the First Amendment to the Constitution below:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Hey pop... i started reading sections of the H of R Healthcare bill and i'll paraphrase the reason that you can't keep your existing coverage for very long, the whole bill can be found here:

Sec. 101 - you can keep your existing health plan provided that the insurance company does not alter it in any of several ways, if the insurance company chooses to alter the plan, they must also make it comply with the entire bill

Sec. 111-122 guidlines which private plans must follow to comply with the bill, to be "qualified plans"

Sec. 401 tax to be paid by people who don't have a qualifed plan
