No, it does not say that in

No, it does not say that in the bill. I have combed through this bill (I am assuming you are talking about the much debated House bill). That is just the spin that insurance agencies are using to scare you. You have to remember that they are not wanting things to change. Please read information from all sides and also take the time to actually break down the bill. And please speak with businesses owners here in Wilmington. Oh, and for the record, because this is being said as well, small businesses will not be fined if their payroll is less than $500,000/ yr. That means that about 90% of small businesses will be exempt, so this bill will help offer relief by giving an alternative to the high premiums and lower coverage most small companies have, if any at all. We desperately need something like that for the small business community. Here is a debunking of the claim that private insurance is dead: "Could a public insurance plan spell the end of private insurance companies? Summary A new ad from Conservatives for Patients' Rights says that a public health insurance plan now being proposed in Congress "could crush all your other choices, driving them out of existence, resulting in 119 million off their current insurance coverage." That's misleading. The 119 million figure comes from an analysis of a plan that would mirror Medicare and be open to every individual and business that wanted it. But that's not the type of public plan President Obama has proposed. Nor is such a plan gaining acceptance on Capitol Hill. The author of the study says that while some have backed the Medicare-like proposal, using the 119 million number "overstates the impact of what now is being considered." The ad also falsely cites the New York Times as the source of a statement that what's being proposed would leave no consumer choices and "government in control of your health care." The Times didn't say that at all. The newspaper was just quoting claims made by insurance companies and members of Congress."
