Tennessee politics behind the scenes
Republicans passed the BIGGEST HEALTH CARE Bill since Medicare: But 400 BILLION to 1 TRILLION on unconstitutional health care is ok?Prescription Drug Benefit.The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-of pocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).Marsha Blackburn Voted FOR this bill.Marsha Blackburn is a Hypocrite.Marsha Blackburn is my CongressmanSee her unconstitutional votes at :http://mickeywhite.blogspot.com/2009/09/tn-congressman-marsha-blackburn-votes.htmlMickeyOh and Marsha Blackburn voted for the Paul Ryan budget plan, which privatizes Medicare.
Marsha Blackburn has never successfully championed anything that reduced government involvement in our lives. It she attempts to do anything with this, other than file the bill, it will be a first.
