    Can you not read? Did you not even look at what I said? I suggested DEregulation as a possible solution the Republicans could have brought up.

    As to when government regulation did work, I'd say the food industry. Before TR got reforms passed, meat plants could and did do things like put poisoned meat, spoiled meat, and rats into the grinders.

    Also (just so we're clear), are you saying that the housing bust was solely the government's fault? If I remember correctly, the banks were doing some pretty shady things.

    Why?They've already come up with plenty of proposals.

    Health plans abound for Republicans

    EDIT- I think this info needs it's own thread.

    Just pointing out you completely misread my post.

    Oh yeah? What's your alternative? Which car would you rather buy? Until you suggest a different new car to buy, don't criticize this choice.



    Basically, it's assumed that a new car must be bought, when the better solution is simply to get a tune-up on the car you have.
    Unless you could buy a ferrari for what it currently costs you for the cars upkeep. I'm sorry, a small fleet of ferraris.

    Re: Dems taunt GOP: Where's your health care plan?

    According to the CDC (2003-2004), 66% of Americans are either overweight or obese [CDC]. That's outrageous.

    A simple change to the average American diet and lifestyle would reduce health care costs dramatically; however, since this would require Americans to get off their asses and do something, it doesn’t seem likely to catch on with anyone.

    Yea let em die.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    And yet, it is somehow wrong to charge obese people more for their health insurance.

    Sure I have a point, the subject of the thread is "Dems taunt GOP: Where's your health care plan?"and you post a link to “Prevalence of Overweight and Obesity Among Adults:United States, 2003-2004".

    What is one to think when you put something like that into a thread? It only points to the fact that the republican party has no plan, other than let the 47 million that die each year due to the lack of healtcare to continue to die.

    with this attude it knda looks like the Senator from the state of Florida hit the nail on the head when he said the Republican Healthcare Plan is “Die Quickly”.
