Why would a HealthSecretary never ask for a budget. This looks like incompetence.

Racism and hate runs deep on the right… they will oppose any and everything Obama until they die off. But President Obama will have a lot of things for them to object to over the next 4 years, LOL!

What did they expect. obamacare is a gift to the insurance and drug companies. Just ask republicrat max baucus who took over $4 million in bribes from these companies.

Big Pharma in fact, was behind Obamacare (contrary to the lies you heard about us activists being funded by insurance companies and pharmaceutical interests) and here is one reason why: they are in the pockets of the Democrats. Similarly the insurance companies never said peep about Obamacare as they too are silent partners who stand to gain from it… and are doing so already.
Lobbyists for special interests have been padding the pockets of amoral politicians for longer than most of us have been alive, and they’ve been doing so with the help of a controlled media that rarely presents the facts without shrouding them in terms of “left” or “right” in order to confuse people. But as you’ll see in this story, the corruption goes far deeper than most people realize, and a perfect example of this is the dishonorable legacy of Nevada Senator and U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid. Reid was recently exposed for accepting large sums of money from Big Pharma in order to craft and guide the recently-passed health care bill in Big Pharma’s favor.

Ok people, now that we passed it and actually found out what's really in it, I can see it's going to cost you working people a bunch. But, hey, I have a separate, elite plan, so, well, uh, sorry. I know, your health insurance costs are going to go up 50-70% and I feel bad, I really do, but do you have any idea what it costs to keep a private jet? Together we'll just have to suck it up.

Hate? You mean like hoping Obama uses drones to kill his domestic political opponents?

Get lost you nutjob. Your days on Topix are over ever since you made your comments about approving murder.

The more people READ the law and begin the understand the CONSEQUENCES of the law, the more will be oposed to it.

Maybe the Health Secretary should READ it and try to understand how PROBLIMATIC the law really is.
