Nancy Pelosi said, ” we have to pass the bill so you can see what’s in it”.  Now we’re finding out that what’s in the bill may not be good for the economy.  Businesses may end their employee sponsored health insurance and send employees out into the open market to purchase insurance.  The Re-Hospitalization Act is making it more difficult for older adults who need care to be admitted to hospitals due to stiff governmental penalties for readmissions.  The participants who wrote the healthcare bill had little or no actual experience working in the healthcare industry. Many have no idea to what lengths companies who face potential penalties will go to to avoid penalties.  Consumers, not companies will pay the penalties, sometimes with their lives.
