Actually they would do a lot of changing to it. They would overload it with hyped up pork provisions for no other reason than they KNOW it would get shot down, and then whine how the dems wont work with them.

Its how they have been handling taking the lead on health care the last 50+ years, Dont see them changing now.

One should pay cash for hospital services. If you can't pay cash for services then you should die. If your insurance company refuses to pay for your treatments, then you should die. The insurance company should receive tax breaks for each person they deny. The CEO's of insurance companies should be earning billions instead of millions. If the CEO's are encouraged to earn larger compensation packages the results will trickle down to the janitors of the insurance companies. Reagan believed in trickle down economics and so do I. There also should be tax breaks for those spending extended stays at hospitals in exclusive wings in hospitals.

There should really only be ONE party in the U.S. government and that party should be Republican. Plus,the only people that should be allowed to vote are property owners. The only folks that should be allowed to run for political office are those property owners that have an accumulated wealth of over 5 million dollars.

Healthcare is not a right. We are not all in this together. We need to neuter the middle-class. Incarcerate the poor and disadvantaged. The American businessman must become a God again.

And you know what? Those poor and middle class should band together, kick in the door of the rich, put a jack boot in the small of their neck and curb stop their jaw off their body for even suggesting something so ignorant, hate filled, insane, and clearly trolling for attention.

Republicans have made it clear, they want NO HEALTHCARE! How many times do they have to lie about it?
I know that Republicans have NO MEMORY, but the 2010 election wasn't that long ago. Right-wing candidates lied all the time, saying they had a better healthcare plan.
WHERE IS IT? They're LIARS! Hello, idiot Republicans - do you get it NOW?

I've been saying, since early 2009, that there are better plans, and if Republicans have a brain in their collective heads, they will pick one.

Republicans want healthcare, just like they want Social Security, etc. but they HATE liberals so much they'd rather DIE THAN COMPROMISE! Plus, intelligent people compromise, not Right-wingers.

So, now they've lost completely, and we have ObamaCare.

Republicans can cry all they want but it's their own stupidity that cost them.

They use pink walls to keep you Baggers from chewing your toes off and killing each other. Proud Bagger? How can you be proud of being in the bottom 1% in IQ scores?
How can you be proud of your leaders like the drooling imbecile Glenn Beck. Or the shrieking loon Joe Walsh. Or the fake plumber, Joe what'shisname or the half term governor and failed veep candidate, Scarabou Barbie, Miss Hoover herself, Palin? How can you follow these ignorant, hate filled troglodyte mooks and be proud of yourself. When you lay down with pigs you come up smelling like a pig poop..

If you think Bubba Clints taxing the elderlys social security, that they already paid taxes on, helped them, you are sniffing Obama butt crack. This isn't the end of the liberal thiefdom, wait until they turn them out of hospitals, denying them care after they contributed all their lives buying into the notion that if you pay your taxes the government would take care of them. Let's wake up. No one cares more about you or your family than you. Don't surrender your rights or property over to people who have better things to do for themselves with your money.

The republicans have had multiple healthcare proposals that were repeatedly ignored by the Democrat Senate and the liberal media going back now for years.

Michele Bachmann's proposals would work, but they also are and were ignored.

Just allowing insurance companies to compete across states lines alone would dramatically reduce the cost of health insurance.

But the liberals in washington don't actually care about our healthcare. The liberals are only interested in controling all of us, through control over our "access" to healthcare.

This is exactly what the Bolsheviks of Russia said before giving rise to Communist Russia. There can be no doupt - not any more - that America's liberals despise America and wish to replace it with Obama's Socialist Dictatorship.

Im no liberal, but I know liberals love America more than the republicans trying to install corporate statism, which is far more dangerous and flawed than the "socialism" they are fighting against, despite no one fighting.

Every time you hear the word Job creator, Entitlement, Socialism, Or any of the rest of the Faux News buzz words, your taking one step closer to economic slavery.

You're definately a liberal.

Liberalism started the housing melt-down - see one Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.

As much as it's fun to hate republicans for supporting job creating corporations that screw consumers out of their money for various goods and services, republicans have not undermined the system to the point of total destruction.

There's no comparison between the Democrat party and the Republican party. Liberalism is a social cancer - a disease that is building big government into the ULTIMATE CORPORATION - One that will screw every last man, woman and child out of their freedom, opportunity, personal property - even their health.

Wake up.

You are right. The liberal machine doesn't want to embrace reality. And neither do the lemmings in the crowd.

You must not have heard of GE or it's famous CEO who was hired by Obama as an advisor to prevent jobs from being outsourced. Funny thing he closed 34k jobs here and then replaced them with 26k Chinese. And how about solar panels, wind tubines, and all the other "green jobs" who Baroke outsourced to other countries such as Finland, China, etc. The final slap in the face was bailing out GM, whose new union leadership opened engine and assembly plants in Mexico and China. Spending US tax dollars, not private money, on Brazil for oil, and businesses who directly contribute to the socialist coffers is the ultimate example of statism and destroying the country's wealth in all classes, promoting the political prostitutes to the position of bourgeois and the rest of us to proletariat. Quoting someone else," the only pollutant in an economic ecosystem is government".

You sound like democrat socialist plant. Conservatives believe in a free enterprise solution, with many options to suit ones health care needs based on what they can afford or what can be given by private groups or citizens to those who can't afford the expenses. A great doctor is worth his weight in gold and normally has a heart to match, and this country has been blessed with a plethora of well trained, compassionate medical professionals. Most forsake social lives, and sadly even family to serve those in need. They are well compensated and should be able practice for what they feel is just compensation. Basically your medical care has and always will be in your own hands. We should educate and take care of ourselves except for those rare exceptions where a professional is needed.
