    It's a monster all right...It should have been slain in its crib.

    Why does having control of your own healthcare within your state bother you so much?

    It's an ugly baby but maybe we can grow it into the adult that we need? That takes what, 30 years or so? That sounds about right.

    Bills full of poison pills trying to repeal legislation instead of funding. We've been through this since Feb. 2011. When are "you people" going to get serious? You're only serious about beating Dems, by hook or crook. As Christie and NEWT said, where are your positive alternatives?

    Spoken like a good little liberal who ignores history and reality. Name for me one federal social program that has cost what it was supposed to cost and isn't currently greatly underfunded and a bloated bureaucracy? Do you really want to give the Federal Govt. another slush fund?

    Not likely, it wasn't designed to work in the first place.

    Because that wouldn't be true either. If it's control you want, have a lot of cash and be willing to travel the world. In that case you can do whatever you want but the rest is an illusion whether the regs come from DC or 50 state offices.

    Again, you show how little you know. If a bill has a poison pill then the Senate under Democrat Control would remove it but Reid is preventing the bills to get to the floor for debate. That is obstructionist. Harry Reid doesn't want Democrats on the record with any of those bills he is holding up for fear they will cause greater losses in 2014. You simply don't have a clue what you are talking about again

    I know you are used to having someone else provide you with everything you want, but healthcare is your responsibility, not mine or any other Federal taxpayer

    Oh it will works about as well as most half-assed efforts. The US is full of those. You could even say the US is one of those.
