Mr. LINDER. Mr. Speaker, I feel rude trying to inject some fact into this kabuki theater, but I am going to try: 85 percent of America is insured; 95 percent of those people are happy with their insurance. The other 15 percent uninsured, they consume 70 percent on average as much insurance as those who are insured. They are cared for. The lady in Cleveland who has been referred to ad nauseam is being cared for at the Cleveland Clinic.

So what are we to do about those 15 percent? Why not take over 16 percent of the economy. A $2.5 trillion program that will destroy health care for the 85 percent who are happy, to find health care for the 15 percent who are not insured. This has never been about health care. This is about government.
