    No one knows every detail. Not you, not me, not the people protesting for or against.

    There is no reason for anyone to be angry about healthcare reform because not only are there no details to get upset about, but it has been made clear that anyone who likes their healthcare coverage may keep it. The "anger" is all phony, or perhaps these people are angry because the president is black.

    Of course it is. In fact, I was against the pushing through the stimulus package so fast for that same reason. However, any health care bill is probably at least a couple months out from passage, so hopefully by then, this will be less of an issue.

    Seriously? We were having a reasonably civil debate, lets not devolve into pathetic race baiting.

    America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Wikipedia has an okay summary of the bill. Considering that it is quite likely to change significantly before it gets voted on, a constantly updated summary is the most practical way to keep abreast of the bills content.

    The only thing "pathetic" is these furious, incensed people at town hall meetings who won't allow a democratic exchange of ideas to take place. Why? Because they are so angry about health care. Why are they angry? I have no idea. Nothing has been taken from them, nothing has been threatened, no matter what form of bill is passed they will not have to change their health care if they don't want to. So why are they angry? I suspect because Glenn Beck or some other brainless fringe pundit told them to be angry.

    Rathi provided a source of the bill information so that point isn't correct.

    People have legitimate criticisms because there are many problems with our health care system that are not being addressed in any way.

    There are also legitimate problems with any kind of government program mainly because the Feds can't afford it, it hasn't been shown to be more efficient and many other things.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
