Hasn't our current policy worked for the past 50+ years? We have yet to be attacked by nuclear weapons. Our allies have yet to be attacked by nuclear weapons.
Why deliberately make the US weaker by changing policy when the past policy has done exactly what it set out to do?12 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
The taxes start now, but the coverage doesn't start for three years. If I die without coverage can my family sue them? They have clearly taken responsibility for my coverage and now they will have written into law the three year wait.7 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
Will we all get to go to the University of Hawaii for free or will the government force us to stay at home and attend or own crappy state Universities? Much like they force us to attend our local primary, middle and high schools?5 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

I find it very interesting that there is a segment of our population that thinks it is okay to allow a government to provide health care for them knowing full well that the Government has to by force if need be, take the money from some one else to pay for it.
The Government while it can print all the money it wants, it's only source of income is to pass laws that forces "WE the PEOPLE" to pay TAXES. If we don't pay the TAXES, the Government will use MEN WITH GUNS to FORCE "We the PEOPLE" to pay the TAXES. Your Health Care will be paid with TAXES collected by the TREAT of MEN WITH GUNS.
If it takes MEN WITH GUN to pay for your Health Care, how is that FREEDOM?

I just opened the 1990 page House bill revealed yesterday by Pelosi.
Here's a link... http://www.graction21.com/gf/21804224-House-HCR-Bi...
After the gratuitous introduction of house responsible for this mess, the very first line of the bill read as quoted below:
To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans
and reduce the growth in health care spending, and
for other purposes."
"...and for other purposes."????
Are you kidding me? Who knows how many countless lawyers worked on this bill and the very first line that addresses the purpose of the bill included the phrase, "...and for other purposes?"
Never mind what other purposes an Health Care Reform Bill is suppose to serve, but this is the best wording a group of lawyers could agree on for the first line of a 1990 page law?
What other purposes are there for the bill? The "Tax you into oblivion" purpose. The "Interview you and advise you to just die" purpose?
The very first line is a bad joke.5 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

This is Fascism. I would like for any Liberal, Progressive, Communist, Socialist or Democrat point out where in the Constitution the Federal Government has the power to do this.
Then explain to me how this is NOT Fascism.
"NEW YORK (AFP) - The Federal Reserve would be required to approve salaries for tens of thousands of US bank workers, as part of a plan to curb risk-taking at financial institutions, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
"The Fed's plan would, for the first time, inject government regulators deep into compensation decisions traditionally reserved for the banks' corporate boards and executives," the report said.
The proposal would see the Fed empowered to ban any compensation policies it believes encourage bank employees -- from chief executives, to traders, to loan officers -- to take too much risk.
"Bureaucrats wouldn't set the pay of individuals, but would review and, if necessary, amend each bank's salary and bonus policies to make sure they don't create harmful incentives," the report added."
If health care is such an important issue now. Why wait until 2013 for the new reform to go into effect?
We are told health care is in dire need of reform. It has to be fixed and has to be fixed NOW or we are all screwed.
Yet, the democrats plans to fix the broken system will not go into effect until 2013 even if it were passed tonight. Why?
Could it be that 2013 is after the next presidential election and enacting health care reform before then would insure Obama's defeat in the 2012 election cycle?
Anyone find this odd? Kind of like the Stimulus Bill. Had to be done today. But only 6% of the $786 Billion will be spent this year. Most of it will not be spent until in 2010 and more in 2011/12. Election years.

Who could say, but Obama feels a turtle crossing is exactly what this country needs to get this country moving again.
$3.4 MILLION for a turtle/wild life crossing in Florida.
Its unbelievable what the bucket of #$@%^@ called the Obama Stimulus Package has in it. AND NOT A SINGLE NEW JOB TO SHOW FOR IT.
I wonder if the turtles will be smart enough to know to use their new under pass?

Why are we not hearing about this in the media? THe only place I can find this story is on right leaning web sites. Funny how the media jams every positive Obama/Democrat poll down our throats until this one...
45% trust Republicans more to make the right decisions on Economic issue. While only 39% think Democrats know what they are doing.
That a huge swing in public opinion. I think the polish has been washed off the Democrat turd.
talk about his Muslin roots? During the campaign a Republican would have caught the wrath of media bias had he mentioned Obama and Muslim in the same sentence.
McCain went so far as to tell his staff to never bring it up.
Yet, now that we have elected this trojan horse, it's fine for the President to talk about freely.
This is what we voted for? Government Motors selling to the Chinese? Looks like the Chinese have stopped buying our debt and just started buying our people...
