    Paterson has been pragmatic for quite awhile if you havent noticed.

    Read on, grasshopper:

    Gov. David Paterson: Health care reform bill punishes New York
    By Kenneth Lovett
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

    Monday, December 21st 2009, 8:48 AM

    Gov. Paterson Monday declared that New York is being "punished" by the national health care bill expected to be voted on by Christmas.

    New York stands to lose between $1.1 billion to $1.25 billion a year if the bill is adopted unchanged, Paterson told Buffalo's WBEN-AM radio.

    Even though the goal of the legislation is to get as many people insured as possible, Paterson complained that New York is hurt by already having provided government-funded healthcare to a larger share of its residents.

    Under the bill, he said, other states are being rewarded by enlisting more Medicaid recipients.

    "New York can't do that, we're at the limit," he said. "We are, in a sense, by the bill being punished for our own charity.

    "If this bill is encouraging the idea of having fewer people needing health insurance, then you would think that since New York already complied with that standard, we would get some equitable benefit for doing what Washington is doing now."
    =snip=



    This is amazing and amusing considering that New York already has the Bentley Car of Medicaid programs which is hurting the Empire, or should I say, Vampire State.

    This is one of the reason why the Dems dont want Paterson to run for a full term, he sees things better than the rest of them.

    And at the same time, he doesn't.

    This phony Health Bill ie very dangerous for many reasons. One is it will add to Obama's goal of destroying the Nations economy which he is well on his way to.
    Two it is causing a pressure build up among many who believe the only way to fight the Obama menace is with the use of violent force.

    I fear that more almost than Obama's Socialist/Communist goals. It was some of Obama's most strident radical supporters who started this rhetoric quoting Mao as saying: "Political Power comes from the barrel of a gun."

    The use of tyranny and the usurping the will of the people is very dangerous.

    Have they not heard the stories of of massive increases in the sales of guns and ammunition in the last year that have lead to shortages? This all worries me because the left has been egging people on and promoting an atmosphere of hate even suggesting that peaceful protests like the 9-12 rally in Washington D.C was filled with haters when in fact all the hate emanates form the Left, while hope still comes from the right.

    I pray that the left will come too their senses and carry out their duties to represent the will of we the people before something really bad happens.

    I would urge everyone to make note that we can stop this Obama nonsense at the ballot box next year and return sanity to Washington by putting enough sane people in office to STOP Obama from any more damage peacefully.

    Do you really believe that revolution is in the air because some conservatives don't want health care? Wow. You've got to step back, breath, and try to look past the "Rush Limbaugh" view of life. I hope the Patriot Act is watching people that have these feelings.

    Do you consider 51% of Americans "some conservatives"???

    No doubt you hope they have a gulag already arranged for people who practice their 2nd Amendment rights and follow the beliefs of Thomas Jefferson.
