"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
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.
Good lord, next we will be suing the Government for not preventing our deaths because the Constitution states we have a right to life.
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.

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.
