Pascrell on PalloneCare: "We Didn't Get It Right"

Congressman Bill Pascrell(D-Paterson)told a group of small business owners and health reform advocates that Congress would have to make changes to the health care bill passed in March, commonly referred to as ObamaCare, "because we didn't get it right," according to an article by Herb Jackson on

Here at MMM we like to call the health care bill PalloneCare because at this Town Hall meeting in Red Bank last August, Congressman Frank Pallone said, "This is my bill. It's not Pelosi's bill or Obama's bill. It's mine."

Back to Pascrell. He told the group of business owners and health reform advocates,“Damm it, what bill did we ever get totally right? In the Congress of the United States of America? You’ve got to be kidding me..."

Congress would get more right if every member read the bills they vote into law, before the voting on them, rather than wait for the law to pass so they could find out what is in it.

Congress would get more right if every bill was posted online for at least 72 hours before a vote, so that the public could review and comment.

Bad news for Anna....

If we had Gooch in there, we would have had a shot and we would have someone who wants to protect the Jersey Shore not destroy it.

But Pallone's bill, the House legislation he was talking about at town halls, isn't "Obamacare." It's the very different Senate bill that was passed and signed. I liked the House plan, not the Senate's.

I'll tell you the plan I like.
The plan that says the government should stay the hell out of health care.
