Does The ‘Shell’ Health Care Bill Have Any Teeth? Dead Sister’s or Otherwise?
The short answer is: Do not trust. And verify.
Upon the release of the ’shell’ 2,300 page reconciliation health care bill, which includes a public option, immediately some started issuing calls to calm down, that it’s a shell bill that will allegedly be stripped by the Rules Committee. Allegedly is the key word. While it is what we are being told, there is no guarantee. In fact, the air drop rules committee strategy allows for any provisions that they need to pass the bill, and that can include the public option or anything else that they wish to insert.
Public option is technically back on the table. And the only way it will come off the table, is if it is stripped out. If.
Why on earth would anyone believe that it would be? Or that any of it will be? Why would anyone believe that the Democrats play fair and that we can all work together all gentlemanly-like and in good faith? They cannot be trusted – they will smile to your face and then turn around and bite off your pinky. They lie to members of their own caucus and now admit they have no plans to remove funding for abortion stipulations.
