And amazingly what we're finding is that it's bad bad and bad.
Hi -- not only will Americans not be able afford health insurance under this law the Congressional Budget Office came out two weeks ago and said.
Group's twenty million Americans will now lose their health insurance if this law stands because businesses are not going to be looked forward.

The Senate's not gonna pat pat -- -- click -- I don't -- your congressmen saintly figure on the record saying you're looking to improve health care delivery.
