    Dude, what are you smokin? The public HATES this bill, ESPECIALLY the public option in particular.

    This bill would be a thousand nails in the coffin for the Democrats.

    The Republicans have no say. They're not even allowed to attend the meetings, and they don't even have a copy of the damn thing.

    You can try all you want, but the public isn't biting. The Democrats OWN this thing 100 percent.

    Absolutely. The only bill Americans should accept is one that requires Congress to be covered under as well.

    Not a bad idea there, bro.

    How would you go about providing every person with access to affordable quality health care.

    That poll didn't even ask people about the plan in the bill passed by the House or the Senate plan, as it stands at this point.

    I would pay the insurance bill for those who don't have insurance. That will only cost a couple hundred billion and I would pass a massive tax on the working class and private businesses to pay for it. I would also pay their insurance tab under the condition that they get a job as soon as possible and start paying their own insurance and monitor their attempts to actually get out and find work.

    But, that would be too easy, too cheap, make too much sense and wouldn't give the government as much control over the American people.

    The current bill will be a great vehicle to backdoor untold numbers of laws such a gun bans, tobacco bans, fast food bans, controls on personal life styles, you name. Controlling the population is really what it's all about. It's naive to think that this anything to do with providing quality health care to American citizens. I predict that there will be more uninsured Americans after the bill is implemented than there are now.

    Relax, dude. This is just the warm up. The game doesn't really start until the Senate and House Bills go to a joint conference committee.

    The Joint Committee can put anything it wants to in the bill it reports out, and the Senate can pass it with just a bare majority.
