3cCurly, are you really worried about this exchange? I mean, if the point of the healthcare bill were to establish a totalitarian dictatorship, do you think that this guy would accidentally reveal the top-secret master plan? And how exactly does the healthcare bill in particular control people any more than any other act of legislation?

Paul W. Smith:
“Are we ready to let 72,000 more people die in our country? If 18,000 died or whatever the number is -- uh, the figure that anyone comes up with -- per year, because of a lack of health insurance or healthcare, when this bill doesn’t basically take effect until 2014?

Rep. Dingell:
"Paul W, we’re not ready to be doing it. But let me remind you, this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is, when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways, it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.”
