Wayne Shepherd

Wayne Shepherd: The push is on in Washington, D.C. Welcome to The Public Square® with Dave Zanotti of The American Policy Roundtable. I'm Wayne Shepherd. And Dave, this is coming at us fast.

Dave Zanotti: Wayne, this is bad and it could get really dangerous.  Congress is taking direct orders from the White House, and trying to jam 1,000 page healthcare bill down everybody's throats.  Nobody has time to print the bill, let along read it, study it, or ask questions to debate it.  This is a measure that will change every single life in the United States, other than members of Congress of course, because they're going to be exempt from the plan.

Yet the President will not permit members the opportunity to read the bill. He's executing his will through the Democrat Speaker of the House and the Senate President. Now here's the question we've all got to ask; regardless of your political party or who you did vote for or didn't vote for, who you like or who you don't like, if this federal healthcare bill is such a good idea, why such a hurry?

WS: Yeah.

DZ:  Since the Democrats have total control of the House and Senate, why rush the process without giving an honest time for debate? If there is nothing to hide, why hide it? Wayne, we've seen this before back in 1994. Radical advocates for nationalized healthcare tried every trick in the book to try and keep their plan in the dark.  It didn't work then, and I sure pray it doesn't work today.

WS: Dave it's happening so fast. What can we do?

DZ: First we've got to pray that the truth will come out.  Next, I urge everyone to call their members of Congress and urge them not to vote on a single page of the healthcare plan until they have read and debated every page.

WS: I agree. I've done it. And I hope you have too. Join us next time for The Public Square®.
