You have to pass this bill so that we can find out what is in it......



This kind of comment is mystifying to me. Because it raises a few questions on how all of this works:
1. Under what theory it it necessary to pass legislation before letting people know what is in it?
2. Who is that will find out what is in it after passing it? The public or Congress? Congress, theoretically should know and understand what they are passing.
3. Or maybe its that nobody can figure out what is really in this bill and the only way to find out is to pass it, start taxing people for it, start rationing healthcare and only THEN will we actually know what it is in it
I suspect that this legislation is like a blackbox. We just do not know what is in it, how it will work, what it will cost or if it will actually work, but we absolutely need to have it and the only way to know these things is to dive in head first!
