    Bravo!

    I have no problem with having to buy insurance. If you cannot afford it you can sign up for Medicaid.

    I welcome the ability to buy coverage in the event I don't have coverage at work.

    I support the new Heathcare laws. I am far from alone with this opinion. I just don't have a loud mouth.

    Well, I guess there is not much else I can say then. If you are OK with the government telling you how to live your life.... No whining when they FORCE you to do something you don't like.

    You might be far from alone... But you ARE heavily outnumbered. By people who know and understand history and what this really means.


    If you cannot afford it now, could you not get Medicade, now anyway? Do you really know what this bill does?

    The Supreme court refused to put a cap on Pain and Suffering awards in medical court cases.

    NP clearly was. Did you notice her facial expression as she walked w/her huge gavel? Aside from the fact that she didn't have to do that and could've saved herself from hearing what "the people" had to say, she had that glassy-eyed look and the painted smile on her face.

    This is why I trust no politician. If they had come right out and said "We know the people don't want this but we do, so it's going to become law", I still wouldn't have respect for them but at least it would demonstrate that transparency that they love to bandy about as though it actually exists. But oh no. They keep saying that they hear the people. Really? Did they not hear the protestors shouting "Kill the bill" and "We will remember"? Were they not aware of the polls that showed the majority of people didn't want this? Yes, they were aware. They chose to ignore it all b/c they wanted it or b/c they were pressured into it. God forbid it should damage Obama's presidency.

    Here's another effer that passed under the radar.

    The med companies now have a 12 year buffer from the challenges of having a generic drug put on the market.

    I still don't understand how forcing people who can't afford to buy insurance now to buy it or face a big fine is such a wonderful idea? Am I missing something? When did we become a dictatorship?

    And when you fail to pay the fine? The arsehats are going to go after your income tax refund.

    Back in the '80s the Houston Astros had a pitcher named J.R. Richard.
    This dude was like 5 foot 20 inches tall and was a commading pitcher.

    He ended up having a stroke when he was 30 years old and never pitched in the major leagues.

    That season I went to a ball game and there were some OBNOXIOUS Houston fans sitting behind us.

    They started to talk crap about Houston not winning the division and the only reason my team was going to win was because of that.

    I turned around and told him that if that is the way we were going to win the division, we didn't want it.

    Some people want to win at all costs and have no qualms about running roughshod over the losers and will bend the ear of anyone one that will listen.

    Come senators, congressmen
    Please heed the call
    Don't stand in the doorway
    Don't block up the hall
    For he that gets hurt
    Will be he who has stalled
    There's a battle outside
    And it is ragin'
    It'll soon shake your windows
    And rattle your walls
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    Come mothers and fathers
    Throughout the land
    And don't criticize
    What you can't understand
    Your sons and your daughters
    Are beyond your command
    Your old road is
    Rapidly agin'
    Please get out of the new one
    If you can't lend your hand
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    -Bob Dylan

    What refund? Haven't had one in years and years.

    They are planning on raiding the SS trust fund to help pay for all this. Only problem is, they raided that after 9/11 and never paid it back. Guess we will all be moving in the White house with the Pres soon.

    There has never been a SS trust fund. It's all general revenue, theoretically tabbed for the specific use of SS........but Congress has NEVER pooled the money, they have always spent it.

    9/11 has nothing to do with this issue.

    Maybe not but before 9/11 they said SS had an excess to keep it going for about 50 years or so. After 9/11 it was gone. I'm sure I don't know what they did with it but it went somewhere.

    It went where "projections" always go, into the trash can or down to the market for use as fish wrapper.

    Politicians lie. To each other, about each other, and against each other, especially when campaigning.

    Long term economic projections are nice targets, but in reality they're useless.
