Our Elected Representatives Lying To Us Again?

From CNN Money, the fine print in the Congressional Health Plans--

In promoting his health-care agenda, President Obama has repeatedly reassured Americans that they can keep their existing health plans -- and that the benefits and access they prize will be enhanced through reform.

A close reading of the two main bills, one backed by Democrats in the House and the other issued by Sen. Edward Kennedy's Health committee, contradict the President's assurances. To be sure, it isn't easy to comb through their 2,000 pages of tortured legal language. But page by page, the bills reveal a web of restrictions, fines, and mandates that would radically change your health-care coverage.

Basically, it's fewer choices all the way around and no reward for a healthy lifestyle. And, keep in mind, our Congressional representatives have exempted themselves from these plans.
