    I do to. That's why I prefer the federal government remain small and as innocuous and uninvolved in our lives as possible.

    I'm very sorry, but you FAIL. You can't have it both ways. For 8 years you blamed Bush for everything imaginable, then it's Obama inherited everything, and what he didn't inherit we need to blame Congress for. Liberals cast the die on this bull**** about the budget being Bush's fault....now YOU'RE going to live with it. And don't worry, we'll be right here to help you remember.

    Nice summary of Dear Leader's lies in tonight's press conference.
    This one is my favorite Obama lie:

    OBAMA: "I have also pledged that health insurance reform will not add to our deficit over the next decade, and I mean it."

    So let me understand this new Obamamath; you are going to expand health services to over 45 million uninsured including illegal aliens, and the costs will all be born by SAVINGS and 1.5% of the American population?

    Good lord, this moron even went as far as to say the savings would be so great that some of the savings could be used to pay down the CURRENT deficit.

    The more I see of this President, the more I am convinced that his far from a clever politician, but more an intellectual idiot who actually believes the BS that erupts from his mouth.

    We are currently spending $100 MILLION per day on interest on the debt and this does not include the new deficits being ramped up by these Democrat morons infesting the congress and White House; and they are claiming that by having Government take over ¼ of the American economy the savings will be so great they will pay down the deficit. You cannot fabricate the level of lunacy it takes to be these people.

    What do you think the inalienable right to life means? (let me guess....you think it just means a definition adopted by anti-abortion groups, right?)
    It takes quite a stretch of credulity to claim that the Constitution contains language that suggests that citizens have a RIGHT to Government managed healthcare; it begs the question, "you're kidding me right?"

    Good lord, next we will be suing the Government for not preventing our deaths because the Constitution states we have a right to life.

    How is it that your logic suggests that if we do not agree and support Government managed healthcare, we don't actually care about our neighbors any longer? How disingenuous and a pile of nonsensical rhetorical bile.

    Perhaps in those of us who think the Government is the single WORST entity to do anything OTHER than administer laws and defend the nation the REAL issue is that we CARE more than you do which is why we are trying to prevent this disaster from actually happening?

    One thing is certain; this is not a debate about "overhauling" the healthcare system; that is a lie. This is about a TAKE OVER by the Government.

    One only need to look at the disaster known as Medicare to see how bad things will get and what a financial disaster this can become.

    Yeah, 'coz there was universal health care then.

    When will you people learn?
    Having the right to somethng does not equate to being able to exercise that right for free.

    And who are we primarily paying these interest payments to, meaning who gets most of this money?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
