    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No, it shows how pathetic the voter base is, and exactly WHY Romney, despite the dreams of Progressives like yourself, will never BE the nominee.

    Actually, you have it bassackwards. Anytime Government "promises" payment, costs go up. Why do you think Government projects are always over budget? Hmmm?

    Single payer is the worst ****ing idea since the Edsel.

    Of course, since the pay won't be there, you'll get lesser talent as brighter minds will go where the compensation is.

    The only thing we can agree on.

    Now that's what you would call circular reasoning.

    The interesting question is what happens if they strike down the mandate but leave the rest of the bill standing.

    It is, but here's the rub....

    Looks like we are going to be stuck with some form of Obamacare, no matter what. To what extent we are going to have this foisted upon us remains to be seen.

    Finally. After every decision, regardless by what court, I've been saying its all been meaningless pretty much until it got here becaues it was inevitable it would. This was too big of a thing to be settled anywhere but SCOTUS. It'll be interesting to see what the decision is.

    Except for the fact the Nation will be bankrupt since the entire BOCare scheme is an economic disaster with or without the mandate, nothing much will happen.
