Shouldn't the first fixes done to healthcare be the obvious ones? Like tort reform and being able to purchase insurance across state lines ... Duh!

I don't understand why the government thinks it needs to take over the whole system and create a massive entitlement program that will suck our economy dry and put us all in the poor house like other Socialist countries

The list of 230 liberal communist Democrats Reps of the House and one sold out Republican Joe Cao that rammed the evil bill down the throats of the American people will be remembered in US history as betrayers of the American constitution and the anti-American bunch of shameless crooks who stabbed the American people in the back and taking their freedom.
The above list of 229 liberal communist America hater loser Reps concocted with the ruthless vicious hateful liar Pelosi to force the American people communistic health anarchy ruled by union hordes and putting in prison Americans who will go by the constitution and will not obey the tyranny rules of the dictator communist Obama.
Tens of millions of Americans and their children will stand up to the corrupt liberal communist who trashed the American constitution and tens of millions Americans will go to prison and oppose the vicious fake government takeover with the health union parasite hordes of the African Muslim born Barack Hussein Obama who vowed to destroy the American private sector economy by taking over the health providers and destroy the health of innocent sick and elderly Americans causing their death.
America is going to become the new Russia under the communistic KGB regime with Americans that will fight for their liberty and freedom will be sent to Alaska or Siberia for long five years minimum hard world prison. This list will be remembered in US history as the betrayers of America who seek the demise of America under the communist regime of fake commander in chief Obama.

The Triumph of Socialism

When the enlightened progressive government of New London, Connecticut decided to confiscate private property and turn it over to a large corporation for development, they declared it was for the Common Good.

They promised development, jobs, and tax revenues from the developments that would be built on the confiscated land.

The Central Planners of the city government decided that the needs of the community were greater than the needs of the private homeowners. The Supreme Court agreed, and allowed the city government to confiscate the land.

How well did this exercise in central planning at the expense of property rights work?

Not so great as it turns out.

Pfizer, the company for whose benefit the central planners confiscated the land, is pulling out of New London, leaving its existing campus vacant and taking away 1,400 jobs.

The hotel which was to be built on the confiscated land won't be built after all, partly because of Pfizer pulling out, and partly because the Coast Guard Museum that was to be built on the site is in limbo while the local Demonrat congressman tries to get an earmark for it.(BTW, there are already Coast Guard Museums in Seattle, Cape Cod, and Virginia Beach. Why, in an age of trillion dollar deficits, do we need to build another one?)

But remember, we need government central planners to run health care, energy, banking, and other areas of the economy because they do such a better job than the private sector.
