In fact, per the CBO, the skies get alot clears in 20 yrs. And they will get better in the near-term as well. Folks just gotta stop with all this fear-mongering and try to see things from a more practical point of view.
    If this were the final bill, I might give you some leeway there. But when Nancy and Kucinich and Reid, etc, say "this is just the beginning", I tend to believe this CBO score is merely table dressing.

    Those town halls you saw last summer will seem like cub scout meetings compared to this.
    This is the kind of fear mongering I'm talking about, folks. Why does one have to react so irrationally?

    Calm down, tough guy. The sky isn't falling; socialism isn't coming to the US in a day, and yes, you'll still have health care coverage whether the reform bill passes or not.

    Chill...

    Well, never mind this thread. Now they're apparently not even going to wait the 72 hours THAT OBAMA PROMISED LAST NIGHT ON FOX.

    I created another thread on the Wall Street Journal article just released.

    This.....this is unprecedented in scope, public dislike of the bill, and in total public awareness.
    well, let's read the bill, shall we? i imagine a good portion of the poeple who are against this plan don't know how this plan will work.

    Re: WSJ article linked to by Eron

    Read it...it's not like the Reps haven't done the same thing in the past; just that now the big deal is a campaign promise broken to allow the public to read legistlative proposals for a specified period (72-hrs) before being voted on.

    I see the hypocrisy, but I also see the urgency from one political view point and to a degree I agree with it. It would be one thing if both sides were truly working together to improve legistlation, but seeing that that's not the case...

    You do know the bill has changed considerably from the summer of 2009, don't you? It even changed in the last month.
