    I can understand the focus being on how to pay for a health care plan, but how can you leave out that most disapprove of the plan itself? That's why I smell a political agenda at work here.

    .
    I don't know why americans continue to fund this corrupt government, besides the fact that they have a gun to our heads. We out number these people, yet we continue to watch as they ram through one failed program after another....like reagan once said..."shouldn't they read the scorecard to us every once in awile"

    first they came for those who made over 250 thousand....

    Are you kidding? What is more equal, everyone paying the same amount, everyone paying the same percentage, or everyone paying on basis of the marginal utility?

    Most Americans are in favor of health care reform, bro.

    Life isn't fair. When everyone realizes this and starts working hard for ****, they'll find they get much more. But with the Welfare Pop-stars out there making ends overlap I doubt that will come anytime soon.


    Does anyone else think it's a fabulous idea to drug test people on welfare and deny them a check if they test positive?

    I'm quickly finding your the absolute KING of the misinformed partisan statements - which means almost everything you say is WRONG. I'm starting to think you want it that way...

    Health Care Reform - Rasmussen Reports

    I'll say it again... Most are for health care reform, but not the reform proposed by Obama and the democrats in the House. When you tell Americans what the bill entails, the numbers go strongly against it.

    Just look at the very poll that started this thread... Geez

    Also, let me add this from that poll you posted:

    As has been the case for months, Democrats favor the plan while Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party are opposed. The latest numbers show support from 79% of those in the presidentís party. The plan is opposed by 78% of Republicans and 61% of unaffiliated voters.

    What was that we heard yesterday, that the tax credits that were given out this year, a lot of Americans will be taxed for those if they have more than one job. Yeah... the rich have it so bad, while the lower middle class gets screwed.

    You sound like you're blaming the government for your failure to achieve financial success.
