has anybody even discussed the fact that this healthcare bill, at best, has 50% support of the population? That being said, doesn't that make it so divisive that it's not worth pursuing? Or is this just a Democrap pissing contest [for the record, Pelosi stands while she pisses]...

Fifty-six percent (56%) of U.S. voters now oppose the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. Thatís the highest level of opposition found - reached three times before - in six months of polling.

There is NO support in the country for this.

The entire GOP in Congress does nothing but this:

RepublicRats spend 100% of their time and effort stealing from the USA and lining their own pockets and those of their global corporate masters.

GOP = thieves.

Now they are trying to KILL AMERICANS by denying health care. Usually they are just trying to BANKRUPT AMERICANS by spending money we don't have on wars we don't need.

Now RepublicRats have reached the scummy bottom of their putrid barrels. RepublicRats from Reagan on have destroyed the US of A.

It is now the largest third world country in the world.

Vote out RepublicRats and their BlueCrossing Corporate Dems and we will get employment, prosperity, health care and a return to the first world.

100% of decent, sane, useful, ethical, productive Americans want massive health care reform. 80% of them want single payer national health care.

It is only the mentally diseased, immoral, criminal trailer trash (aka RepublicRats and Bluecrossing corporate Dems) who want the status quo = bankruptcy.

If you are not for single payer, you are not worthy of being an American. We do not want you here so leave.

The key my friend is this: Are you willing to pay into something that doesn't kick in until 2013 or 2014? How about I say I'll let you have a property, pay me 3-4 years worth of mortgage and afterwards you can have the property. Good deal? Right!
The bill, in either Senate or House versions, sucks! And, unless you live underneath a rock, don't expect those payments...out to 2013 or 2014, to be sacrosanct. They'll get looted by Congress for all sorts of other grandiose projects. Won't be a first, and certainly not the last of DC lies.

All health reform legislation should be obvious fixes and enjoy bipartisan support. The problem with America is that Democrats are more concerned about winning partisan battles than doing what is right for America. Any health reform bill starts with these ESSENTIAL provisions:

> America REJECTS the Public Option
> America wants tort reform to stop frivolus medical malpractice lawsuits against doctors
> America wants purchasing healthcare insurance across state lines legalized, to increase choice and competition among carriers and drive down costs
> Give individuals the right to deduct the cost of their health insurance policy from their taxable income
> Allow people to organize into groups for the purpose of buying health insurance policies (i.e. private co-ops or purchasing pools)
> No public funds for abortion
> No public funds for illegal aliens
> No mandatory buy-in

Anything less is a NO GO!!!
