Biotech, nanotech, and advanced robotics will begin to drive the economy in this decade. This provides an even greater benefit in regards to health care.

It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

CROUCH DOWN AND LICK THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU; MAY YOUR CHAINS WEIGH LIGHTLY UPON YOU; AND MAY PROSPERITY FORGET THAT YE WERE MY COUNTRYMEN. -SAMUEL ADAMS
I love how CNN and MSNBC automatically assume it was a tea partier and immediately paint the whole conservative movement with the same brush.
Moveon.org and those types LOVE to pull these kinds of stunts.
Sadly, Probably the same amount in congress who voted for this pig....

Special quotas for minorities in med school
I have a small business, I don't supply health care. I pay them an allowance to go towards whatever they want, understanding, they get this extra bump in thier paychecks for them to get thier own health care. they all love it....
It will suck for them when it goes away and they have to take crappier health care AND less money.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
I want a pro-business environment. I am all for new hire tax breaks, apprenticeships, school co-ops, tax breaks for installations, whatever it takes to bring business around.
I really am damned if I vote Democratic, who are not pro-business, and damned if I don't voting Republican because of social conservatives. Perhaps you are right that it is easy to overcome social conservative law, but that would require progressives get into power and pass their economic BS.
I hope that my party, the Whigs, gains ground since I am that balance. I think many independents are too.
This bill, while not perfect, is a good place to start. Unfortunately, due to the Party of No and a handful of bluedog Democrats, there were things that could have made this bill a lot better, that had to be left out.
However, this Country moves slowly and this is a good start. We need to have a good public option or even better a single payer system. But we'll take what we can get.
A good day for the people of America.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
