Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D. , a women's health specialist and healthcare reform activist, believes that the healthcare proposals have become a massive power grab to control the citizen's money, health options, businesses, liberty, and ultimately, citizen's lives. "It is not about insuring the poor," Dr. Vliet says. "Medicaid already covers the poor. What the Democratic majority is doing to healthcare in this country is a crime. Punishment won't fall on Congress and the President, who are excluded from the healthcare proposals. Punishment falls on the American people, especially the elderly."
Dr Vliet continues, "For Senator Majority Leader Reid, the plan appears to be to merge the two Senate bills that have passed out of committee, and attach them as an amendment to a House TARP bill, already passed by the House but curiously gathering dust in the Senate. Once the Senate votes on this 'TARP' bill with the healthcare amendment tucked neatly inside, the healthcare punishment is a "done deal" without further debate. Such an abuse of power and due process would be an unforgivable crime against the American people, perpetrated by the very people elected to represent us."
