The Health Care bill is getting closer to becoming reality. The health insurance industry can't wait for this cash cow to pass.

What are we getting for our tax dollars with this health care Bill. Yesterday on "Meet the Press" Joe Scarborough really brought up a lot of good points that we should be aware of. According to Joe the biggest winner for the health care bill is going to be the Health care industry itself.
Below is a list of what we are not getting in the Health Care Bill

Still not allowed to cross state lines to shop for Health insurance
Still not allowed to shop for Prescriptions drugs in Canada
Absolutely nothing done with Tort reform
No Public Option
You will not be denied Health insurance due to a pre existing condition but you will pay more for it, up to 30% more then a person with out the condition. Reform?

It seems like we did not get a lot for a year of negotiations. I think they could of provided health care to thirty million Americans with out going threw this entire process. Where is all the competition to bring down the cost of health care for those who have it already? If you are fortunate and already have health insurance, you get to keep it and pay higher taxes for it, sounds good right? The biggest winners are going to be the health insurance companies and health care providers. Many Health insurance companies hit 52 week highs on Friday. I don't think they are to concerned about the passage of this health care bill. Did we get the shaft or is this real reform? You have to look at the "Meet the Press" video and leave your comments I will respond back to all.
