    mandates on individuals to buy for themselves that which they can't afford, fines and threats of jail for those who refuse or are unable to conform

    the doc fix, a quarter T

    exemptions for insider fatcats and recalcitrant influencers like ms landrieu and the seiu

    taxes, fines, fees on small biz, large biz, targeted industries, individuals, rich, middle and lower class...

    i could go on (and on)

    believe me

    a pretty good bill?

    Re: Hoyer: Comprehensive health bill may be no go

    yes, in his "blueprint"

    ie, the equivalent of a coloring book

    and cbo says it can't score the cute little thing as it is too vague

    so, yes, what you said

    extending the cornhusker kickback TIMES FIFTY

    the point---goodness knows what that will cost

    the point---cbo can't say

    the point---we won't have to worry about it cuz the bill is going nowhere

    The public option, at least the one in the previous bill, had to run off its own premiums and would not receive taxpayer subsidization to promote lower premiums. It was all right there in the bill, but nobody ever reads these things and just assumes the worst.

    Re: Hoyer: Comprehensive health bill may be no go

    true

    but it's too late, as i know you appreciate

    worst of both worlds for the progressives---fully responsible for pushing all this crap, they bring all this political pain upon themselves

    with no payback, no pretty pot of public option at the end of the purple rainbow

    this is why i say again and again, obama is the most incompetent politician at the national level america has ever produced

    party on, peeps

    The fact that it is there is all that matters. They want a public option, long rejected by Republicans.

    Well more people voted for Democrats and polls show strong public support for a public option (when explained properly what exactly that is) so I'm not sure why anybody should care what Republicans think.
