If the right wingers would actually, rationally learn about what health care reform is really all about they would understand that it would be beneficial to them.

One more good thing going on in the Show Me State! Looks like a good place to retire in a few years.
Oh, Please! You folks from Chicago -- Missouri is a TERRIBLE place to live, and you would never like it.

Let me suggest Arkansas, which would be far more to your liking as a good place for retirement!

It doesnt matter if theres an option to opt out or not, my family and I REFUSE to purchase govt run healthcare. It is a scam, intrusive, and is blatantly UNCONSTITUTIONAL. I feel incredibly sorry for the poor bastards who attempt to force obamacare upon my family, friends, or allies, because when push comes to shove, the ak will start spitting out copper covered steel... And the beautiful thing about it is that there isnt a vest or other form of body armor on the planet that will stop them....
Its 2 minutes to midnight...BE PREPARED
LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC!

Do you honestly believe that giving more control of the health care system over to the Federal Government is going to help REDUCE the level of corruption?
That is the funniest thing I have read on here today!
If you think that is funny then you have no idea how our health care system really works.

I believe it is because people just vote with their anger or whatever without research or thinking. They want change and when it comes they get upset because they did not know what the change was. Now I am hearing alot of vote out incumbants without knowing what the incumbants did. They might have fought for the right thing and people want to vote them out. Their experience and connections might help during the next session. The other thing people are blaming all democrats for the federal level mistakes when the local and state had nothing to do with the issues in Washington D.C. Some of the State level democrats were against the buy out and health reform. We need to keep the experience in where they did good for the people in their districts.
Sorry I rattled on

I'm not really sure why this has to become a dem vs rep....or a name calling and threat contest...it is just to discuss the proposition and opinions about it. I am NOT an Obama fan, and definitely not a fan of the "healthcare reform bill" in it's entirety. It does have some good points, but unfortunately it was passed waaaay before it was ready. The bad outnumbers the good at this point, but hopefully it can be made into something positive for all Americans. I do NOT think forcing people to purchase insurance as the government sees fit is in any way the answer to making healthcare affordable for all.....

Anybody who thinks that this health care bill is a good thing hasn't read any of it. Rather you are for or against it go to www.collinsreport.com . It will tell you what is really in the bill. It even gives you page numbers and lines. Care will be rationed, government will tell you what treatments you can or cannot have,ect.

Who is footing the bill for Postal Service? AM Track? SS, Medicare? Do you see any illegals footing the bill? NO you don't and they will clearly not foot the bill at local hospitals, ERs. Taxes on smokes are already paying for kids healthcare. Obama signed that on inagural day. We have the best healthcare in the world don't screw it up by turning it over to the feds.

TaxpaYERS PAID $24,000.00 PER CLUNKER AND OBAMA/BIDEN WERE PROUD!
They should be ashamed!!! Thanks for defeating prop C Missourians.

I can guarantee you that those of us who opposed ObamaCare know infinitely more about how our health care system works, than those of you who support it know about how it WILL work.

********"Well then" said the Little Red Hen,"In THAT case"********

In 'that' case, IF a incumbent IS in either party (Dem ore Repub) and KNOWS absolutely that he/she stood up AGAINST his fellow party incumbents for the GOOD of the American people, that he/she tried with their mite to "buck the Status Quo" and finds himself/herself being .'evicked'(voted out of his/her party's position that he/she HOLDS, then GET the he!! out of THAT party and run as an Independent! Only by declaring him/her self OUT of whatever party he/she is NOW in will he/she stand any chance of going along with the NEW THINKING voter that is on the horizon of CHANGEs that will be coming up in the upcoming elections!

IF the incumbent does NOT 'agree' with their party's OLD platforms and old habits then it is time to crap or get off the pot! They cannot expect to have it 'both ways'... It will be the TWO PARTY System that we are voting OUT not the people that actually do care about this country!

Either THEY (the 'good' incumbent), CHANGES COMPLETELY 'out' of their present party or they GO... Period (.)

Case in point:*I* would VOTE FOR Howard Coble of North Carolina in a New York second, no matter WHAT he chose to run for, IF he left the Republican Party and declared himself Independent!
