This is a note I left on Congressman Price's website. I do not expect much out of him. He voted for cap and trade and repeated all the lies liberals made in regards to the legislation. He is able to do so because NC-4 is gerrymandered and include the UNC and Duke campuses which overwhelms the more conservative areas of Cary and Apex, NC. No doubt many of those college students are voting both in NC and back home as well. Enjoy.
Perhaps you can explain to me how the health care plan can expand coverage AND lower costs. Especially since the CBO has blown that nonsense out of the water on several occasions. One need only to look at TennCare in TN or MassCare to see what will happen.
Equally silly is the assertion on your website that in seven years Americans will be paying half their income for health coverage.
We both know that a public option will destroy the private insurance industry. They cannot compete with a government entity that is subsidized by the taxpayers. The result will by like today's Cash For Clunkers nonsense, the public plan runs out of money due to it being more costly than projected, and congress will send over another allocation of money. And as Massachusetts and Tennessee are finding out, it will be much more costly than projected.
The public option really is just a Trojan Horse for a single-payer system anyway. Several of your democrat colleagues have said so including Barney Frank. Is that what you support? Do you have the courage to say it out loud?
In closing, I would like to know when you will be having a constituent meeting so we can ask you these questions and more, including "Will you read the bill before you vote". And not in Chapel HIll or Durham with a college crowd, I suggest out in Cary or Apex with a group of constituents that are not screened and who will actually be paying for this takeover of 1/6th of our economy.
