Same old worn out liberal strawman argument. Healthcare is not a right to be paid for with a theft by force Obama wealth redistribution scheme.
Who said I'm "liberal" or not. I just don't hate poor people nearly as much as you do. By the way, for all you paranoid schitzophrenics out there who are so disturbed with American politics, love it or leave it (or at the very least, take your meds as prescribed)... OK?

Dem's fiery rhetoric goes unpunished...so far
Chad Groening - OneNewsNow - 1/24/2011 4:45:00 AM
A Democratic congressman is under fire for equating Republicans' opposition to the healthcare reform law to Nazi propaganda.


Steve Cohen represents Tennessee's ninth congressional district, which mainly encompasses the city of Memphis. During recent debates leading up to the GOP passage of the healthcare repeal, Cohen compared the Republicans' concerns about ObamaCare to the tactics of infamous Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels.

"They say it's a government takeover of healthcare.[That's] a big lie -- just like Goebbels," Cohen argued. "You say it enough, you repeat the lie...and eventually, people believe it -- like 'blood libel.' That's the same kind of thing. The Germans said enough about the Jews...the people believed it, and you had the Holocaust."

But Rich Noyes, director of research at the Media Research Center (MRC), contends that "this is a terrible metaphor to use at any time. Others have gone there in the past, but they usually get pushed back pretty quickly. But to do that the week after we've had this national discussion about civility, I don't know what this congressman is thinking."

He believes the White House and the Democratic leadership in the House should chastise Cohen for his extreme rhetoric.

"They were very quick to condemn rhetoric as being somehow implicated in the Arizona shooting. Well, this is one of their own on the House floor using that kind of rhetoric," Noyes points out. "Do they think that somehow when Democrats use extreme name-calling against Republicans, it's okay -- and only Republicans need to be chastised? They need to sort of figure out what kind of double standards they have."

(why you can not play fair with the Democraps. The
only way to get them to be civil, is to remove them from office, and not let them back in. The
Republicans only want the Health care Bill opened up and take it one step at a time, to remove the
crap that was sneaked into the bill. It doesn't
appear that the Senate will go along with that though, so it is up to us to remove them as the majority. I won't even speak about the IDIOT in the White House, who thinks we have 57 States. What a buffoon, a real puppet on a Socialistic/
Muslim string)

We have to reduce the cost to the country. It's our biggest uncontrolled cost. Also, we have electronic records in banking. Why not in health care. Imagine the cost of banking if we didn't have ATMs, electronic records, etc. You'd have to go to you branch, and they would have to get your physical file folder for your balance. Like we do in health care.

The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced today that the remains of a serviceman, missing in action from the Vietnam War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

Army Sgt. John R. Jones, of Louisville, Ky., will be buried Dec. 6, in Arlington National Cemetery. On June 4, 1971, Jones was part of a U.S. team working with indigenous commandos to defend a radio-relay base, known as Hickory Hill, in Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam. When enemy forces attacked the site, Jones and another serviceman took up a defensive position in a nearby bunker. The following morning, Jones was reportedly killed by enemy fire and the other soldier was captured and held as a POW until 1973.

From 1993 to 2010, joint U.S.-Socialist Republic of Vietnam (S.R.V.) teams, led by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), conducted several investigations, surveyed the site and interviewed multiple witnesses, including those involved in the battle. During that time, analysts from JPAC and DPMO evaluated wartime records and eyewitness accounts to determine possible excavation sites. In 2011, another joint U.S.-S.R.V team located human remains in a bunker suspected to be the last known location of Jones.

My taxes shouldn't be raised and our veterans benefits should not be cut to fund a socialist medical program where the bums that won't work and the illegal's that pay nothing into the system get free medical and as far as I am concerned being a drunk or a druggie is a choice not a sickness I also don't like the idea of an appointed board deciding wether or not someone gets treatment or not and its absurd to think just because someone that is 70 or older that might have a terminal disease will not receive treatment and will be left to suffer and die. Odummies health care plan will destroy small businesses and our country. We that work will have higher health care premiums and higher taxes. We need to impeach Obama and get rid of all of the communist democrats involved in this poliyical scam

Dumb ass, read the bill. You don't even know what you are talking about. None of the BS you say here is true. Thank God American's as a majority are not as ignorant as you. The 47% that voted for Romney like you. How ironic you are the 47%.
