Kline issues statement opposing House health-care bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As House Republicans ratchet up their opposition to the health-care reform bill that the Democratic leadership would like to vote on by the end of the week, Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., reiterated his concerns Tuesday on the landmark legislation.

“The Pelosi government takeover of health care is not the common-sense, bipartisan reform the American people need and deserve,” Kline said in a statement, adding that he was particularly concerned about planned cuts to Medicare Advantage.

    Remarkable. Representive Kline supports governnment taskover of health care, including subsidies, for people eligible for Medicare but not a health care public option, without subsidies, for younger people. I guess he has noticed who votes.


    I’ve heard it stated that health care is over consumed by old people. Perhaps. See Steven Miles, MD, Professor of Medical Ethics at the University of Minnesota web page. But it is definetely true that education is over consumed by young people.
    That’s just the way life is.
