ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The national health care act is more than 1,000 pages long, and it seems clear that no one on the congressional committees is familiar with the details contained therein. I used to work for the federal government, and based on my experience I know that it takes more than a full year to develop such a complex body of proposed law. Because the health care proposal currently before Congress likely was written before President Obama was even elected, Americans deserve to know where the proposed law came from and who wrote it.

I suspect that it was written by a collection of parties who have a vested interest in its passage. Isn’t it time that the White House and Congress level with the American public about the proposed law’s origin?
