The Ten questions to ask your Congress Member

From Hugh Hewitt here:

1. Do you guarantee that I get to keep the plan I have and the doctor I have?

2. Will the law require Members of Congress and federal employees to be enrolled in the "government option/public plan," and if not, why not?

3. Will seniors be guaranteed joint replacements, stents, and the chemotherapy they need, or will they be forced to accept less-costly and less-effective alternatives?

4. If seniors will be allowed the expensive but most effective treatments, how will costs be controlled?

5. Will seniors have to wait longer for their treatments than they do now?

6. Will doctors see their payment schedules drop?

7. If their payments fall and they make less money, won't there be fewer doctors practicing medicine?

8. Doesn't Canada have long lines for important surgeries?

9. How will making our system more like Canada's not mean longer lines and longer waits here?

10. Have you read the bill well enough to be interviewed about it on the radio by a conservative talk show host?
