States don't mind taking money from the federal government when they want it, but then they'll turn around and complain about losing states' rights when the issue is something they don't like. Make up your minds, governors. Be totally self-sufficient or STFU.

As usual with any pro-healthscam report, the article is very misleading when it states that "Texas would be among the biggest beneficiaries of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, standing to gain coverage for nearly 4 million uninsured residents".

No one is "gaining" coverage; people are being "forced" to purchase a consumer good.

Typical half truth headliner propaganda by liberal media. They specialize in half truths and words. Just like Obama. Untrustworthy, con artists. Objective news from liberals is an oxymoron.

You won't be forced per se, you will pay a fee if you don't obtain health insurance. Still a choice, but with an incentive to get insurance.

And it's not government health care, it's still obtained through private insurance companies, just the way right wingers like it.

If people are uninsured then ultimately it's the government that pays the uninsured's medical costs - right wingers don't like that.

Or so they say.

I was disappointed that the mashed-up mangled healthcare bill passed, though our system desperately needs reforming.

By a conservative estimate, more than 10,000 highly-paid professional lobbyists have protected their employers in insurance companies and other health-related fields by getting their grubby hands on the bill and gutting it of needed reforms and cost-cutting measures.

Ironically, other highly-paid advertising and PR geniuses, paid by the same corporate interests that pay the lobbyists, have been able to persuade the people who most need affordable health care that an effort to provide it to them is some evil plot.

I would have preferred that we rock along a few years and let the public see the results of doing nothing.

Increases of more than 30% to already expensive insurance rates have been announced in several states.

It appears that only tough love will make the need for reform obvious to some misinformed voters.
