Reasonable Amendments to H.R. 3200 Defeated by Democrats in Committee

On Friday, July 17, 2009, the House Ways and Means Committee passed H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009.

As documented on the website for the Republican members of the Committee (on Twitter and YouTube), Democrats defeated eleven reasonable amendments to the bill that would have

  • allowed Americans to keep their current private health insurance
  • prevented Members of Congress from exempting themselves from the plan
  • made rationing of health care less likely
  • prevented rationing by delay under the plan
  • eliminated tax increases for employers
  • limited the government plan to states with “reasonable medical liability regulations”
  • prevented illegal aliens from receiving taxpayer-subsidized health care under the plan
  • prohibited “requiring health insurance plans to cover abortions”
  • required the government to “maintain reserves and other margins in amounts consistent with insurance standards that apply to private plans”
  • prevented the government from “forcing providers to participate” in the plan
  • repealed “the prohibition on new enrollees in private individual market plans”
