Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is not amused with the GOP's attempt to repeal health care reform. He has said, "Over 1 million people will be left without health insurance if this bill is repealed. Family premiums for those who have insurance will go up nearly $2,000," and yesterday, during House debate, he questioned the Republican's intentions in classic form:

Just a word on the whole "government takeover" thing. I mean, I love you guys, I know you're caught up in the rhetoric of the campaign. This is—this is the tax breaks that are going to go to citizens to buy—wait for it—private insurance policies. Where's the government takeover in that? And do you think small businesses benefit when they don't provide health insurance and then people go to the hospital emergency rooms to get their care? Who do you think pays that bill? The bill fairy? Your taxpayers! Your taxpayers in your states. Now what's your solution? Well, they don't have a solution. We know what they're against. They are against health reform. We don't know what they are for. Welcome to the Republican majority.

WCBS 2 asked some New York residents how they felt about health care reform, and got scattered answers:“They should absolutely keep it,” Chappaqua resident Marc Valenti told CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer. “From the day they passed the legislation, 31 million people I think were added on. And suddenly children with pre-existing conditions were now covered.”

“Repeal it immediately. The first rule of medicine is do no harm and the health care bill does enormous harm to both the physicians who really want to practice medicine and patients who deserve quality care,” said John Margand of Yonkers. “I think its really a ploy by certain socialists.”

“Not all of it, only some parts of it should be repealed. Some parts that can help the poor and less fortunate, yes keep it in. Give them that safety net. But if we’re gonna blow up the deficit and blow up our economy we have to find ways to cut it,” added Chris Guerrero of East Harlem.
Hey, remember that whole extension of the Bush tax cuts thing, which is adding $900 billion to the deficit?
