AGAIN how can OBAMA comment, push or even talk about something he has NO CLUE about HE hasn't read the bill from either branch and said right out he won't.. didn't he just do this with another thing he had NO CLUE about?? He flapped his lips about the Police acting stupidly without having ANY facts.. Maybe they should do to him what they keep trying to do with Biden.. SHUT HIM UP.. How do we know he's telling LIES? His lips are moving..

Excuse me that is a real question/statement.. can you give a book report WITHOUT reading the book?? How can Obama talk about a bill he hasn't read?? For that matter how can ANY of the Politicians who haven't read the bill?? Any answers they give would be scripted.. You seem to be a bit touchy about answering without knowing the facts.. must be something your familiar with doing..

FOX news has its problems but the other news organizations are far worse. We should be boycotting them until they quit spinning the liberal agenda and start reporting the news.

Better get ready. This president is going to push a bad bill through that will bankrupt this country. The people are drinking the poison because they want something for free. People this bill will come at a great cost. Don't be fooled by this smooth talking liar.

The Obination thinks that we are all idiots!

I SAY NO!!!

Stole this from another poster:

Page 16: If you change jobs for career advancement or any other reason, nobody can insure you but the government. The bill prohibits insurance companies from writing new policies.

Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments you get and, unlike a private insurer, there will be no appeals process.

Page 59: The government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer to pay for your healthcare.

Page 145: An employer must enroll employees into the government run, public plan. No other alternatives will be available.

Page 149: Any employer with an annual payroll of $400K or more, who does not offer the public option, pays an additional 8% tax on payroll.

Page 150: Any employer with an annual payroll of $250 to $400K, who does not offer the public option, must pay a 2 to 6% tax on payroll.

Page 167: Any individual who does not have acceptable healthcare insurance, according to the government, will be taxed 2.5% of his/her income.

Page 203: "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as a tax." And yes, it really says that, these are the exact words.

Page 425: Government will instruct and consult you regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. And this will be mandatory. It looks like the government wants to lock in your estate taxes ahead of time, before you can get your estate in order, so you will not be able to leave your children their inheritance ahead of time.

Page 425: The government will provide an approved list of end-of-life resources, guiding you in death.

Page 427: Government mandates program that orders end-of-life treatment. The government will dictate how, and when, your life ends.

Page 429: Advance Care Planning Consult will be used to dictate treatment as patients health deteriorates. This can include an ORDER for end-of-life plans. An order from the government telling you when you have to die.

Page 430: Government will decide what level of treatments you may have at end-of-life.

Actually I do beleive we are on the same side.. I am never fooled by a man who say's all the right things found he's only saying what he thinks one want's to hear.. I read the bill.. Obama says he soundrounds himself with those that KNOW about different subjects he himself lacks knowledge of and takes their advise well his advisor on this health care is Dr.Zecco Emanuel brother of Rahm Emanuel look up what he was to say in January of 2009.. we will be having rationing big time, the elderly and the young up to two have no real value to him.. nor do the handicapped or anyone who is not able to basically be a slave.. Look up Peter Singer another one.. Oh they are taking the pages right out of the Progressive hand book wrote in the 20's and borrowed by HITLER.. my dad was VERY AVID that we learn what HILTER did and how he was able to do it.. there are just TOO many parallels to IGNORE..
