Rep. Mike Pence, in an interview with MSNBC's Dr. Nancy, said Speaker Pelosi released PelosiCare today - a plan that has now grown from 1,000 pages to 1,900 pages and contains the word "shall" 3,425 times. Dr. Nancy Snyderman asked Pence why Americans cannot have the same "federal plan" that
members of Congress enjoys, and "why is there a firewall around your plan?" Pence
corrected her, gently, saying there is no government option in the health care Congress receives, and it is not a government plan. See video below.
That's the thing. Liberal commentators don't have a clue how the world works.
About that the word "shall," it's a mandate - someone "shall" do something. There is nothing optional about "shall."
Mike Pence said this bill is a "freight train of higher taxes, mandates and bureaucracy." Several times, Pence said Americans should have health care they can purchase across state lines, which would, like the plans covering Congress, bring down the cost of health care. We all know that our health care costs would be dramatically reduced once competition is a part of the process.
