Liberals and Communists in our government will use any tragedy to gain sympathy for their Rationed Care and Death panels.

It really is sickening.

What people don't realize, is that health care in the USA, HISTORICALLY, has been used as a method of creating voluntary indentured servitude and slavery.

When the colonist first arrived in America, they brought European diseases. These disease decimated the native populations. Those that managed to survive did so because the European doctors cured them.... Then, as a re-payment for fixing them, the natives would work for the colonist... as a method of paying off their debt.

Right now in the USA, we have a similar system, but instead of being in-debited to the doctors, we are in-debited to the banking system.

Massive health care cost are initially covered when you go in, but eventually, you have to pay. Who covers the cost? The banks that lend the hospitals $ and in some extreme cases, people have even put medical bills on their credit cards.

This story is truly sad because the soldier died. But what is even more depressing, is that his children (in the current US system) will only be covered until the age of 18....

Health Care should be a God Given inalienable right for the people! We have a right to happiness and health!

Please... people wake up and realize that the bankers have you all fooled!!!

Right now, our entire nation is being ran into the ground by international bankers. The major cause of the recession is because of intreset payments.... Both personal, corporate, and governmental....

The bankers are destroying our country!

Obama is NOT the enemy.

The banking elite are!!!
These same bankers that are INTERNATIONAL organizations, NOT US Citizens....

Seriously.... WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

They have you brainwashed through the media channels they own and sponsor!!!

The socialist/marxist movement has been moving forward in america since the 1931 ILD was formed which is the beginning of what the ACLU became. Their first goals were, water down education in civics and the constitution, remove religion from our culture and to tear down the values that made this country great. They are patient and never give up, they just change direction. That's how Obama happened and once in office, he brought in his buddies without veting or security clearance.

"I asked a White House official today if Van Jones filled out that famous seven-page, 63-question questionnaire that the White House put forward to everyone who was either going to have a Cabinet position or a high-ranking advisory position in the White House. Van Jones did not," Fox News White House Correspondent Major Garrett reported Monday.

Obama has boldly broken his Oath of Office by allowing people like this into cabnet level positions with no veting or security clearances into the countries sensitive information and military secrets..........this is the change some of you voted for.

When will you stop blaming every single problem our country faces on a political group?

IS that an acknowledgement that obama is a liar? You trying to dodge a simple question? You might want to check who said what.

You're right, it's sickening the way the left degrades the honorable death of a serviceman in order to sell their government insurance power grab.

If the writers were honest they would have focused on the high unemployment situation created by the Democrats, beginning with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack.

The Federal Government offers our military top of the line health care, the kind of health care every American citizen deserves.

Shame on all of you unpatriotic right-wing jerks that are against President Obama’s effort to reform our health care system, you guys are always against progress. Americans shouldn’t have to put their lives on the line in order to receive health care. Quality Health Care is a right as an American, and you pathetic unpatriotic right-wingers are trying to prevent Americans from getting just that. Your support of Bush over the last 8 years has left so much blood on your hands that you are either numb to it or just blood thirsty as you try and prevent more Americans from life saving health care.

All of you will burn in Hell for the evil and hate that you propagate.

As a retired military member, I'm also against any healthcare reform that cost taxpayers money because- like the senior citizens on Medicare- that may end up cutting MY taxpayer provided healthcare.

I have absolutely no problem with the govt provided healthcare I've received for 30 years. Anybody without adequate health insurance can join the military and enjoy the exact same benefits. So quit your whining and enlist!

IS not obama wanting to send more troops? Is not obama the president? Is not the house and senate controled by the democrats? Why do you play a blame game when your powers to be can change whatever it is you are blaming the previous administration of?

lets see jimbo. first off: seperation of church and state: you want to know why they made it? becuase they never wanted this to become a theocracy like so many reublicans nowadays want it to be. i even recall reading about how thomas jefferson called the book of revelations "a work of fanatics and fools" i got a cammandment for you: KEEP THY RELIGION TO THYSELF. and as for the ACLU? there one of the reasons why you still have those guns you love so much. and your civil liberties that you acuuse them of taking away.
