It's not ready. I don't appreciate it being pushed through, and the people or the Republicans have no idea what is in it.

yes, And I can afford health care. Plus, why not. All people with health care, lets try to help people out who can't afford it. And stop being selfish sheep. Medicare is GOVERNMENT RUN you The guy (our president) watched his mom DIE...fighting with her insurance company for care. Now how many of you have ever been in that situation before? And still not want to fight for it. Sometimes I think this beef isn't even about health care. It's something deeper, someone more sinister...and most of you cowards don't have the guts to say what it really is. I don't agree with all of the president's policies, but HE is right about trying to fix our health care issue in America. I hope you people wake up. And look past hate, and do whats help people.
Why would you believe this? Survival rates in US for nearly every illness are higher than anywhere in the world. Care is provided to sick people regardless of their ability to pay in the US. Too many make opinions without the facts, I have lived in Canada and seen the rationing first hand, a friend cared for his mother for the last 2 years of her life and was her nurse, no room at the hospital, she eventually died at home and a VON "victorian order of nurses" signed the death cert. absolute rationing! families tired of the burden can easily stop caring for people as a VON signs off.

I asked a wise Cherokee man what was wrong with Defiant 1 Dan and mwc.. He told me a story of two wolves.
He said,“My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride superiority and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
I thought for a minute and asked what determines which wolf wins.
The old Cherokee simply replied ,“The one you feed and dan, Defiant 1 and mwc’s Evil wolfs eat buffet.
Some things the wolf wants to keep from you. ....

Signed into law 6/25/10 See below ...

Some are being disinjinus to the Max on here 3962 is a health care bill, is law, and the last one signed into law. It expands care, research, prevention and education. ...

Is the reconciliation bill. To post a section that shows where insurance shows up on your W2 without showing the tax credits you will get for having it is just manipulation without showing the full context, a lie.

"You ask for them to hire illegals by demanding lower prices ao the farmer has to find cheap labor to lower prices. "
Sorry, but I grow a lot of my own food in my garden. I also hunt or have friends who give me the deer meat they hunt for. My grandfather was a dairy farmer. I did a lot of farm work growing up. I also picked tomatoes as a child in south eastern Ohio every summer until I reached high school. That was my summer job. Now kids can't get the job of picking tomatoes because Mexican illegals do it. I've never complained about having to pay more for vegetables and fruits I bought in the store. So please stop using the same tired bullshit excuse of "they do the jobs no one else will do for cheap".
We have a population of out of work citizens who would do a lot of the same jobs for minimum wage. They can't get those jobs though because illegals are taking them. There will always be corrupt business people who will hire people to work substandard wages. How do we fix this? The damn immigration office needs to actually start arresting people who hire illegals and deport them all when they make the arrest. The problem is so many illegals have fake drivers licenses, fake documentation, that it's hard to prove who is illegal and who is legal. Have you ever seen a forged illegal license? Some of them are very well done. They often times even have the holograms on them. The only way to spot some of the fake ones are to scan them electronically!
Stop being an apologist for illegals who are breaking the laws. People who make excuses for their behavior is part of the problem in this country.
So, will you do the jobs for cheap wages????????? IF so, how can YOU survive????

Well let's see I was paid $7 an hour to pick tomatoes and that was in the early 90's which was great money and well above minimum wage. We all worked there willingly and the owners of the farms were very nice to us. They would bring cold water for the kids and always had food there for the kids who would forget their lunches or if their families couldn't afford to always pack them lunches.
I enjoy how out of that entire explanation all you did was pick out children and illegals. You should see someone because I think you have a reading comprehension problem.
I'm sorry!!!! I guess you just answered my previous question......

And if you are so mad about illegals coming here, than why people like you NEVER gets mad at me and my colleagues who hire them FOR cheap labor because I know for damn sure that no kid is willing to work sun up and sun down for $2.00 per hour. What is I'm saying??? I want the teapartiers to keep fighting against those who have NO POWER, and not to fight those who have POWER. Keep up the good fight.

Well, some one in Florida voted three times each for GW......

But who cares, right!!! As long as I can control the Republicans and the Democrats, we will NEVER have any type of change except the change in the median wages of American middle class workers....

Another victory for the lobbyist. Hi-Five!!!!

Another victory for Economic Warfare, which has been continued since the 1950s during the rise of Corporate Power. Another Hi-Five!!!

Another victory for the Death of the American Union, which means a DEATH TO THE MIDDLE CLASS. Another Amen. Those bastards had to go....

Another victory for the elites. Hi-Five!!!

Warren Buffett explains how he pays a tax rate less than his secretary. This is an example of how the Bush tax cuts put a larger Burdon on the Middle Class.
This is also a major factor in the increased national debt.
These need to expire.

Is warren liberal because he admits the tax cuts benefited him and burdened the Middle Class.

Another factor that is major in contributing to the debt.

And explains a failed Bush policy that added twice as much to the debt as Health Reform.

Pfc Richard S Gzik

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

Marine Pfc. Richard S. Gzik, of Toledo, Ohio, will be buried today, at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC. On Dec. 2, 1950, Gzik and the other Marines of M Battery, 11th Artillery Regiment, 1st Marine Division, came under attack on the west side of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. It was during this battle that Gzik was killed in action and his remains were buried alongside the road leading to Hagaru-ri. Later that month, the withdrawal of U.N. forces from the Chosin Reservoir region made it impossible to recover Gzik’s remains.

In 1954, United Nations and Communist Forces exchanged the remains of war dead in what came to be called “Operation Glory.” All remains recovered in Operation Glory were turned over to the Army Central Identification Unit for analysis. Those which were unable to be identified, given the technology of that time, were interred as unknowns at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii -- the “Punchbowl.”

In 2012, analysts from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) re-examined the case records and determined that advances in technology could likely aid in the identification of the unknown remains as Gzik. Once the remains were exhumed, scientists from JPAC used circumstantial evidence and forensic identification tools, including dental records and radiographs, to validate Gzik’s identification.

Using modern technology, identifications continue to be made from remains that were previously buried as unknown. Today, 7,947 Americans remain unaccounted for from the Korean War.
