Today, Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL), Deputy Whip and Ways and Means Committee member, announced open registration for a new educational course called Healthcare 218: Intro to the Democrat Health Plan. With 218 days between now and November 2, 2010, Healthcare 218 will daily chronicle the massive new costs, delays, hidden problems and bureaucratic hurdles the recently passed healthcare legislation will impose on American families. In urging passage of the Democrat health overhaul bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the American people, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." Healthcare 218 will do just that, educating the public about what this $1 trillion legislation actually accomplishes: raising healthcare costs and taxes on the middle class, piling on to the national debt, and interfering with the doctor patient relationship. In the days and weeks before ramming this bill through Congress, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid pulled out all the stops, manipulating the legislative process to pressure and strong-arm votes for their healthcare bill. It won't take scare tactics and backroom deals for the American public to pass its final exam on November 2nd.
