New health bill, I don't get it. Who is it benifiting, the insurance companies Obama is promoting for, Medicad people whom he just added more spending money too. I was unable to afford insurance before, I am anemic from lack of nutrition trying to feed my children, this fine I will have to pay, will get my anemic to the next level.

I would like to know how is this bill saving money?

The only thing I see the bill doing is taking more out of american even those worse for those whom where already struglying, who do we THANKS, not just Obama but all politic.

It's not a health bill, it's a tax bill and a union scam -- Americans' lives controlled cradle-to-grave by government bureaucrats, run by unions, and enforced by the IRS.

Aside from taxing Americans into oblivion, spending and bankrupting Americans into oblivion, demonizing business, kissing union ass and giving their union ownership trillions of taxpayer dollars, growing tyrannical government, jeapordizing our domestic and international economic and overall security, stomping out freedoms one at a time, trashing criminal justice in favor of liberal justice, spitting at self-reliance, accountability, and responsibility in favor of nanny-state control, welfare, and entitlements in exchange for votes, along with 24/7 politics-first America-last partisan politics for power and control, and of course that perrenial favorite, trampling the US Constitution --- they're doing what any self-disrespecting enemy of America and the American way would do.

I've asked you number of times, and you have yet to answer, how was Bush's wars (not that I agree with the wars) illegal? Did or did not Congress vote unanimously giving authority to take military action? Did Bush act unilaterally without the consent or approval of Congress?

Further if the wars are "illegal" then Obama should have pulled our troops and left. No questions asked. No phase out. No anything. Just leave. Also open the doors at Gitmo, since those incarcerated there are prisoners of this so called "illegal" war.

So again I ask, how are the wars "illegal"?

NO, MAINLY you blame Obamination and the BRAINDEAD followers. I KNOW there are DEMS who know this health "care" reform is a TRAINWRECK, but for political reasons they can't stand up against it. SO, it's not ALL politic as you stated to blame. There are PLENTY who are fighting to stop it, but the Obamatrons are clueless and I'm now convinced EXTREMELY ignorant on how detrimental this is to our country.

David surely you don't think that because most voted for the war that makes it legal...it simply authorizes the start and has nothing to do with being legal. We violated the Geneva convention, with our handling of prisoners, and we violated the articles of war by attacking a soverign nation, unprovoked and they were not a threat to our nation.

The mumbling, fumbling, bungling night of the chief chicken little foaming at the pie hole is real comical and dangerous to his or is it her blood pressure.

Are you really that dense? Sure you are. After all you are the party of stupid, Obama showed just how easy it is to tear the rights butt up , after you get beyond being smear and fear merchants..there is little left other than mindless babble, like we do to old Mi-rage every day.

Is he comical or what, I suggest that he seek help, especially since there is almost 7 more years left for our president to send this pathetic lying draft dodging hypocrite to the insane asylum.

Ahem, You did not Factor in the 2.4 Trillion of Iraq Spending Bills to Fund the Wars under G W. Bush.... Did you suddenly get a case of "Forget-fulness"
Remember those Spending Bills, because the Wars were not FUNDED in any Budget, until Obama place those cost on the 2009 Budget, the Republican presented to the Public all of those years insufficent information.
Remember in selling the American Public the War in Iraq, the Administration telling America our Troops would be met with Flowers and Candy.... Well we all know how that went, right?
But they also said the the War would not COST the Country anything, "revenues from the sales of Iraqi Oil would pay for the Invasion"
We that was as reliable as the Flowers and Candy LIE!!!!
If you don't remember it's in accordance with the values of the Republicans on these kind of matters.
You've seemed to have forgotten a lot.
Billy, your argument is so weak because I have already stated many times that I found GWB's spending habits to be disgusting, so much so that I didn't vote for him the second time around. There is no forgetfulness here. Next, we aren't talking about the budget. We are talking about the debt. So come on, Billy, explain why it is so bad for GWB to have run up the debt by trillions of dollars but and why you think it is o.k. for BO to run it up even more in a shorter period of time. Try to stay focused on the present.

On those points I agree, to an extent. But apparently the world leaders disagree as they have not taken actions, accused Bush of illegal activities, or brought him before War tribunals. So our comments are nothing more than opinion, you and I. Even Obama has dropped any pursuit criminal charges against Bush or his administration. Which if Obama were to seek charges, wouldn't Obama by continuing the war, and Bush policies, be as guilty?

When did you get promoted to Sec'y Defense? Attorney General, perhaps?

Also, last time I checked the Taliban and Al Queda were not signatories of the Geneva ConventionS.

Ok, If we are just Talking about DEBT, the Accumulative Debt of America $12 Trillion from the Administration of All American Presidents in the History of the United States of America.

$8 Trillion of that Debt was rung up by Reagan and Bush.

For Republicans, the Theory of being Fiscal Conservatives is Delusional......

Further more, After Every Republican President from Nixon onward, the Country has been left in shreads when their Terms were Completed.

What do you NOT understand about the Republican Fiscal Ideas?

You are standing up for the destruction of America as determined by the Results of implemented Republican Policy over the years.

You and no other Republican can argue against that History....

Fell free to Ramble and Rant, incoherently all you want, but the Facts have been before the nation for a long time. The Democrats are spineless they refuse to reveal your true record but, in the information age, all of the relevant information is available.

George Bush did not just spend like a drunken sailor in a Bondage Strip Club, it's in the Republican DNA

If you find a subject that you have just a little bit of knowledge about ...stick with it. Were we not at war with them, you can sell your soul to the devil but I prefer to abide by existing laws.. war time or otherwise. Your way is to stoop to the heathen level. You and people like you are the reason we are dispised around the world. Thank goodness we now have a real leader.
