The elderly will not be able to make their own life ending decisions I am afraid and also the present life care prevention medicine will most likely go away. It will also be changed to use for abortion and assisted suicide if not included now but it will be in the future.

We have a problem with health care costs. We can't continue with the costs going in the direction they are now. A group of people pointed the same direction can accomplish much more than only one. Why is this called socialized medicine, but we don't call the highway system socialized roads?

Rep. Bart Stupak informed Greta Van Susteren of FOX News that the White House told him to keep silent on abortion until the President had a chance to walk him through the pro-abortion Nelson-Reid Amendment.

Stupak responded, "I don't need you to walk me through the amendment. I can read, and this amendment is unacceptable." He went on to explain his objections to the Senate bill:

-- It recognizes abortion as a benefit covered under disease prevention (by this logic, the baby must be the disease)

-- It forces taxpayers to subsidize health care plans that pay for abortions (in direct violation of the Hyde Amendment)

-- It forces every enrollee in the federal exchange to pay a monthly fee to fund "reproductive rights" (abortion)

As you know, the Senate bill and the House bill must now be reconciled in a conference between Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Nancy Pelosi has already indicated her intention of making sure that the abortion funding of the Senate bill is included in the final bill instead of the Stupak Amendment.

Big business is pushing the Health Care "Reform" bill because it will relieve them of the burden of the employee "benefit".
What most people don't know out "mandatory" health insurance, just a small detail of Obama's health care plan is this:
Mandatory means by law you must purchase health insurance. Obama plans to set up an exchange where person can shop for a plan that suits them. Anyone who doesn't have insurance will be required by law to purchase it. Qualified low income persons or families can get Gov't help to pay thier premiums.
This is how Massachusetts set up their "mandatory health" plan.
The individual mandate is a requirement that all Massachusetts residents over the age of 18, for whom available health insurance is affordable, obtain and maintain health insurance that meets minimum coverage requirements beginning July 1, 2007.
Individuals who cannot show proof of health insurance coverage by Dec. 31, 2007, will lose their personal income tax exemption when filing their 2007 income taxes. Also,failure to meet the requirement in 2008 will result in a fine for each month the individual does not have coverage.
This is one major point that proponents don't want the general public to know about.
In Massachusetts, a family of 4 with 2 working adults, making about 50k a year, is paying about $350.00 a month for minimum coverage requirements.
Is this what we want? You think the economy can withstand this? The above family could barely make ends meet as it is on 50k a year.

Too costly, no personal benefit, expands govt. too much, doesn't address tort reform nor costs, and MOST OF ALL - it won't apply to congress, the very people that are saying it is good for everyone else.

The proposed Health Care proposal is unconstitutional and is Scocialist. It is through this type of large government influence that the gap between the rich and the poor becomes more prevalent, the need for supply and demand deminishes, and competition between businesses and customer service are no longer relevant.

It is all lies.
It cannot pay for itself.
85% of the American public suffer, due to the inevitability of raised taxes, to support the 15% who are 'needing' this 'help'

Ilove how people are clueless as to the actual tax's owed..just because we have been under a tax cut doesnt mean the original tax isnt still there. Sure we got the tax break and when the bush tax cut is lifted we will go back to where the tax owed is righted. Repubs giving a tax cut but then adding to national debt is worse than Dem's removing the tax cut and using the tax's for the right appropriation .... repub's pretend to give relief to American people with tax cuts..but then saddle the nation with enormous debt from borrowing...get real understanding people..stop being sheep. Look back u will see the falter. We borrow because the tax's that should be in place to run our budgetary needs are not there. Tax is every American duty..to freedom.

Who can forget California Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer’s put-down of Brigadier General Michael Walsh, during a June 2009 committee hearing? When he addressed her as “Ma’am,” in answering a question about the New Orleans levee system, she petulantly interrupted:“Could you say Senator, instead of Ma’am? I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it.”


“Ma’am” is a term of respect given by military personnel to superior female officers. So she’s right. She didn’t deserve it. Her behavior was once again disrespectful, arrogant, condescending – and a disgrace to a Congress whose public esteem is deservedly at a record low.

As Californians head to the polls November 2, they should ponder very carefully whether they really want, and can really afford, another six years of Barbara Boxer.

The Golden State’s junior senator has long been dismissive of anyone who dares to disagree with her, no matter what experience, expertise or evidence they might bring to a Senate proceeding. She epitomizes the overbearing attitude of the power elite, the ruling class that thinks it knows more than we do, is better than us, and is in Washington not to serve or represent us, but to rule us
Last year she did it again. National Black Chamber of Commerce CEO Harry Alford had introduced an expert study his organization had commissioned, concluding that cap-tax-and-trade legislation would result in 1.3 million fewer net jobs, increase energy and consumer costs, and hurt minority families, despite any green jobs supposedly created through massive taxpayer subsidies. Boxer wouldn’t hear it.

She presented two letters that supposedly contradicted Alford’s study, by making meaningless claims about global warming and renewable energy. The NAACP “approved a historic resolution addressing climate change legislation,” said one.“Clean energy will unlock millions of jobs, and NAACP support is vital to ensuring that these jobs help rebuild urban areas,” said the other.

“What does that mean?” Alford wanted to know.“You’re trying to put up another black group to contradict me.” These people “would be proud” that they were being quoted in this committee hearing, Boxer retorted in her most imperious and condescending tone.

When he responded to her accusation that he wasn’t from California – noting that he was born and raised there and still owns property in the state – she stopped him with a testy “Let me talk to you.”(In other words,“Don’t get uppity with me.”)

Barbara Boxer is on a mission. She intends to control our economy, opportunities and lives
Barbara Boxer is on a mission. She intends to control our economy, opportunities and lives. Put the federal government in charge of an American energy and free enterprise system that created more health, opportunity and prosperity for more people than any other system in history. And replace hydrocarbon energy and the tens of millions of jobs it sustains – with “green” jobs created by using money confiscated from families, businesses and our grandchildren to subsidize favored companies and minority groups that will help ensure that liberal politicians are reelected in perpetuity.

She is not about to let some uppity black man, contrary economic analysis or “fake” experts like William Gray and Michael Crichton derail her scheme. No wonder the left-leaning San Francisco Chronicle dis-endorsed her, saying:“Her most famous moments on Capitol Hill have ... been ones of ... delivering partisan shots. There is no reason to believe that another six-year term would bring anything but more of the same uninspired representation.”

On November 3, let’s call her FORMER Senator Barbara Boxer
