    You know having a higher standard means you stick to it even when other's don't, that's the definition of a higher standard.
    No, and I'd appreciate if you didn't misrepresent me, although I know that may be too tall an order for you. We haven't seen the actual bill yet, and it was just announced, so let's wait to see if it gains enough traction to see the particulars. But, at the same time, you can't say we aren't coming up with anything anymore. At least and be honest about it.

    So it is about playing games, and you think the GOP should be taken seriously why?

    Also, Boner has blocked things as well. Seems you are for the tit for tat game which accomplishes nothing. Thank you for proving yet again why the Dems AND GOP should not be taken seriously.

    No, they are being played by BOTH sides. Which is why neither should be taken seriously. Even YOU just proved that now.

    You know it's interesting that Americans concept of choice doesn't really hold up when you analyze it.

    As an example they did a test on this.

    In North America, you put all the pepsi products on a table and it was seen as a choice between the various ones.

    Performed the same test in Eastern Europe and it wasn't seen as a choice because it's all Soda.

    Put pepsi next to water, orange juice and tea and that was seen as a choice in Eastern Europe.

    I think when it comes to HMO's, what Americans see as choice is very delusional when so many of these companies major aim is for you to pay higher premiums and get less care.
    Very good, I like this. Over time we have become conditioned to minimal choices and think we really have a choice.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I do not take either of the two major parties seriously. They are both supported by a lot of the same corporations and wall street firms when it comes to getting their money. Both takes millions from these folks to include the health insurance industry. To go against these moneyed folks would lose their tens of millions in campaign donations. One should realize whether one supports the Republicans or the Democrats, they are playing into the hands of these faceless, nameless money folks which stand behind the two major parties and give them their money to spread their propaganda.

    False, the plan has the same state high risk state exchanges that existed before Obamacare. It even offers you a subsidy to purchase a plan if you are indigent.

    I think what we need to do is create an underground railroad of sorts that delivers Central Americans who cross the US border directly to Canada.
