While the unholy and enigmatic alliances between lobbyists, insurance companies and their friends in Congress are responsible in large part for the unsettling vicissitudes of health care reform, Big Pharma must surely share in the blame game as well.

Like Sen. Judd Gregg, I also believe Congress needs to start over with its health care efforts — but for very different reasons.

Do you have reliable, affordable, high-quality health care, guaranteed for life? Do all of your children? Parents? Grandchildren? Friends and neighbors? If so, congratulations.

Republican strategist Bob Luntz wrote it's not what you say but what people hear. He was correct. I keep hearing the phrase, "government-run health care," which is purposely vague and undefined. However, it frightens people who think that they will be forced to leave their current doctor and report to a dull gray building where they will receive poor treatment from a government doctor who graduated at the bottom of the class.

Thomas Clairmont, MD | Letter to the Editor | The Telegraph (Nashua, NH)
The current health care bills should be rejected. With 45 million people uninsured, 45,000 deaths annually due to lack of insurance, and nearly a million medical bankruptcies a year, a four-year delay in medical reform is unacceptable. Medicare was in place eleven months after passage in 1965.

Amid chaos, misinformation and misunderstanding, the health care reform bill was nudged through the House of Representatives by the narrowest of margins. By not letting the facts get in the way of their blustering arguments, wacky lawmakers from both sides of the aisle offered lots of hype and heft, at times bench pressing the actual 2,100-page document to underscore the strength of their positions.

Speaker Pelosi has pledged to hold a floor debate and vote on single-payer health reform this fall. This vote on an amendment to HR 3200 (the 1,000-plus page bill favored by the House leadership) would substitute the 27-page HR 676 as the new health care policy of the United States.
