    Remember that plan we had? I was telling it to one of my libertarian friends, and he said the same thing you did. I should be President.

    Unfortunately, you're right. It was intelligent, bipartisan, and no one would have listened.

    I can play "twist the words" as well. Use of tax dollars to provide health care to our citizens is very noble cause. There is nothing noble about invading a nation that is not a threat to the U.S. and using our tax dollars to distribute death and destruction amongst a population who didn't want us there.

    Do you see how this works?

    I care about others as well, but when I can give....I choose to do so, I don't want it forcible taken from me for things that are not constitutional.
    And how do you feel about your taxpayer dollars being used to sustain an occupation of a foreign country, for which there is no measurable ROI? Because I've been here a long, long time and I just don't recall you getting all up in a fuss over that forcible taking of your money.

    So would you agree that you are okay with wasteful use of your tax dollar when the agenda suits your personal fancy?

    This health bill is crap.
    This bill may in fact be crap, I don't know. The idea behind it is very worthy in my opinion.

    I don't agree, but I want to see the fine print before committing to that. My guess is that the increased costs may be offset by the costs of the uninsured. Not sure about that. It may be that only time will tell.

    Here is an article from the liberal Huffington post explaining how insurance companies support this David Dayen: The "Insurance Companies Support Health Care Reform" Gambit
    Here is also polling results showing that the majority of America does not want this bill.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Have trust in me, those cuts will vaporize when republicans get control.
    That is their #1 pander group.
