The list goes on and people are starting to see what a bunch of power mad idiots there are trying to run our government.
This is the end of liberalism for the next 20 years.
[quote]Look at how angry those politicians are this time though, and look at how quick they are to demonize detractors, this speaks volumes.I would expect you, by now, to be a little bit more informed than the average dimwit on the street. Politicians say a lot of things on campaign trails, and they hold a lot of views and ideas that are not always implemented.I completely disagree, this is exactly what is being proposed, but instead of a direct implementation, they are trying to sneak it in by small incrimentalist steps, I truly wish it was just partisanship guiding my call here, but that isn't the case.Fact is, and saying otherwise is just a sad red herring, we are not getting UHC.I'm willing to discuss things, unfortunately I don't think there is a way to salvage the current bill, if it were scrapped for something that more resembled health reform and less resembled government micro-management and interference I'd be more hopeful about it.Throwing that out there serves absolutely no purpose other than to end discussion.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
You guys talk about closet liberals! These guys are behaving like GOP members!On June 19, Rep. Mike Ross of Arkansas made clear that he and a group of other conservative Democrats known as the Blue Dogs were increasingly unhappy with the direction that health-care legislation was taking in the House.
"The committees' draft falls short," the former pharmacy owner said in a statement that day, citing, among other things, provisions that major health-care companies also strongly oppose.
Five days later, Ross was the guest of honor at a special "health-care industry reception," one of at least seven fundraisers for the Arkansas lawmaker held by health-care companies or their lobbyists this year, according to publicly available invitations.
