You can get questions to the Senate Doctors by the following methods:

Read the Democrat health insurance plan [pdf]. All 1,000 plus pages.

The Doctors also have Web Page.

And you know what else? The CBO says that there will be no cost savings with the Democrat Bill.
One of the main arguments made by the President and others for investing in health reform now is that it will save the federal government money in the long run by containing costs.

Turns out that may not be the case, according to Doug Elmendorf, director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

Answering questions from Democrat Kent Conrad of North Dakota at a hearing of the Senate Budget Committee today, Elmendorf said CBO does not see health care cost savings in either of the partisan Democratic bills currently in Congress.
Our government lying to us? I'm shocked.

I think the whole Government Health care mess can be explained by Simon's Law:

It is unwise to attribute to malice alone that which can be attributed to malice and stupidity.

Think of how much worse it would be if we weren't lead by The Smartest President Ever™. Three Years 6 months 0 weeks and 2 days to go.
