    Withdrawing does not equal no troops present. Get back to me when the last American soldier leaves the country.

    Healthcare was not that big of a problem back then. Insurance was relatively cheap, it didn't bankrupt a family to have a member spend a couple weeks in the hospital, doctors made house calls, were not multimilionaires and it didn't cost $1500 bucks for a five minute MRI.
    Clinton tried to address the problem but was shot down. Now it's out of control and there is no solution.
    The GOP had ample time to implement their pet solutions such as tort reform, state line issues etc, but did nothing. The GOP is the party of do nothings until it's too late..

    All the bad guys have been killed in Iraq. When we pull out, lasting peace will break out and Iraq will become the tourist capital of the MidEast.

    sesame street might be a good start
    If you say so, but their is no jail penalty written for not having health insurance. That's just a fact.

    we know, we know, you told us

    "their" is no imprisonment for not buying insurance

    "their's" just jail time for not paying the fine imposed for not buying insurance

    that's a very important and significant point

    merits endless repetition

    Yep. Just like you go to jail for not paying a speeding fine. It's your choice.

    Yep. Got the wrong their there. Understood.

    Now, as noted above, you don't go to jail for a simple speeding ticket, but if you refuse to pay, a different crime, you could go to jail. When you have to break a second law to go to jail, it is that which sends you to jail.
