Freedom Voted Down in the Black of Night (Corrected)

* - Article changed to reflect that the bill was indeed posted on-line at least 72 hours before the vote for public viewing. Hat Tip to David for correcting me on this issue and providing the link!

In the black of night, Pelosi snuck in a vote on the "health care reform" bill H. R. 3962, which sadly passed. This new administration promised openness. Sadly, that was not the case. It's final form was drafted outside of the public eye. The bill was posted here for review. Consisting of nearly 2,000 pages, it proposes major socialist changes to our health care system. It now goes before the Senate.

The following is a list of those who voted in favor of this travesty:

Prescription Drug Benefit.
The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-ofpocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
Marsha Blackburn Voted FOR this bill.

The full bill was posted on-line since at least October 30th at http://docs.house.gov/rules/health/111_ahcaa.pdf. My Congressman, Peter Roskam, had encouraged citizens to read the bill via a link from his website.

Thanks for the update. I was under the impression that not the actual bill which was posted, but a summary (in a sense).
