    You're comparing apples to oranges. Pork barrel spending has NOTHING to do with healthcare legislation. If you want to start a thread about wasteful spending by the government, I'll be all over that, but that's a long way away from the topic of this thread.

    Ah so you're ok with wasteful spending as long as it is the GOP doing it. And you have proven my comments right yet again. Please keep going, this is hilarious.

    apdst, please do us all the honor, and explain your reasoning why Gruber thinks he had to mask the bill to liberals - a group of people, who if they had their way, would have taken it 5 steps further.
    You just answered your own question.

    1) Wasteful spending has nothing to do with the topic.

    2) Don't put words into my mouth, because you know damn well I never said any such thing. Don't lie, you're better than that.

    Wow, you were forced to have a baby? Sorry to hear that.


    Correct. For instance, the powers given to it such as taxation.
    Very limited. As it states in your quote below.


    I am of the opinion that is extremely juvenile to compare the ACA to slavery. And it's a damn insult to the memory of those who actually experienced slavery.
    But it is not. We are not comparing the act of slavery to the act of forcing people to buy healthcare, though you seem to fail to see the similarities. The point was made that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of both, which you can not deny.


    "Section 8. Clause 1. The Congress shall have Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States."
    As I posted before, sure does look like the Constitution provides for a national defense. Is there another point you were trying to make? You posted this without making a point.

    So you vehemently oppose the ACA then? You want it overturned?

    They were not deceiving people about stepping toward socialized medicine, they were trying to fool people about the costs, about it really being a wealth redistribution program, about the fact that the younger people would have to pay in large amounts of money and get almost nothing out.

Try reading something other than you hack sites and you might just trip across the truth once in a while.

    If the CRA was about stopping discrimination based on color and neighborhood then why did the Government force banks and the GSEs to lower their standards ?
