The liberal voting base is the super rich and the super poor. What they are doing is expanding the size of both. Just a thought.

He wants to socialize and make the best health care in the world sorry like the rest of the world's. He is attempting to control the masses with this power grab. He is attempting increase the Democrat's political base by making people beholding to them. One of many ways to accomplish this is trying to set immigration policy in a back door way by allowing illegal alien health care to be covered in this socialized health care bill. He will not allow older citizens to get heart by passes because their productive tax life will not justify the tax expenditures. He is trying to pass this legislature without the approval of the citizens. There are so many reasons not to support these proposal it would take 2000 pages to address.

The bill is a big looser for America. Bigger government, higher taxes and more control over our lives make it an absolute blunder.

[QUOTE who="Rev. Tom"]I have read the bills and it is also what is not said that gives the courts and gov. the loopholes to impose at least 57 new govt. agencies, bureaus, committees,etc to say what medical procedures you can or cannot get from your doctor. Oh yes more jobs for unions, Acorn and new govt employees, they are the ones getting jobs, not the people. Total no. of people to poor to get health coverage is about 10-12 million. illegals 12-15 million, people who can afford but choose not to buy ins. 15-20 million. No. of people in United States around 310 million. Why should those 15 million make 300 million change their ins?[/QUOTE]

Judging the way you compose a sentence.....I truly doubt you could read let alone comprehend any document.

Who is going to inforce the mandatory health care? You can still get free, yes free health care by showing up to any emergency room and signing in. Do you really think people are going to still buy health care? Hell no ! Also, as soon as this passes, if it passes, the next step is to make all the illegels citizens. Then guess what they will have health care and for the graditude they will keep voting for the democrats the ones that gave them citizenship and health care. How is Obama going to pay for this.... TAXES and more TAXES on the working stiffs... BOHICA
There is an element of truth to what you say.
What you fail to realize is "showing up to the emergency room" might be free....if you don't own anything and don't care about your credit.
If you do own a home....they will own it with time.

60% of medical bankruptcies are medically related.
Of that 2/3 of were well educated people carrying insurance.
We are all one illness away from being broke. Anyone that denies that is a fool wearing blinders....whats your ceiling? Cancer will eat it up in no time.

If you think that's okay....Then you are sick puppies.

people who can not afford to buy insurance now,will be able to buy when president Obamas idea is in practice.
Your an idiot. Under his plan he will FURTHER tax those who work to support the masses that sit on the front porch to have more free health care. These porch dwellers will in turn contenue to vote for the man who gives them free hand outs. Its the standard Democrat playbook move to buy votes by taxing one class then giving it to those that wont work.
If you cant buy health insurance then maybe you should have done better in school or worked.
Some guy living under a bridge isnt going to be able to buy health insurance no matter how cheap it is. And wouldnt choose to buy it anyway, most of these people spend their money on lotto tickets and booze, and flat screens.
Step into reality dumbass.

I voted because I feel all americans deserve a better and cheap healthcare public option we must have that.
Are you (the support votes)kidding me or just kidding yourselves? Our government has PROVEN time and time again that they are not and can NOT be fiscally responsible. Furthermore, government run healthcare has NOT been successful in ANY other countries which is why people WORLDWIDE flock to our country for medical care.

When the LEADERS of our country will SUBMIT to the EXACT same medical care that they are asking us to live with, THEN I will pay attention to what they have to say. As it stands they would be willing to just ELIMINATE healthcare for everyone as long as their royal butts were being covered.

Since when do politicians know anything about healthcare anyway? They think the term healthcare is a synonym for the lining in the pockets of their designer suits.

I find it disturbing that I can spend hundreds+ dollars on my medical plan for pharmaceuticals that may or may NOT help a condition that i might have (AND whose side effects are probably worse than the original problem) but our plans do not cover ANY preventative care. The ONLY money that they will allow us to call medical expenses it for PHARMACEUTICALs that can be patented and sold at a premium. CAN YOU SAY something smells alot like corruption???

It's government involvement that has caused the problem of high healthcare costs.

Government taking over the process is not going to lower the cost or provide better care.

Perhaps wake up can explain Hill Burton to us?

I have a life, and I have MS. In fact I'm retired because of it. And I will vote for anyone who promises to repeal this bastardization of our health care system. Sorry we disagree, but the majority of people I know are very skeptical of this mandate, and can find nothing in the Commerce Clause to give Congress this power. But I'll never understand why anyone would support a Bill that was railroaded through in the ugliest of fashions, and even with my medical condition, I won't participate in this...at all.
