    Not nearly as much as it is costing to reconstruct Iraq. Just sayin.

    Economic convergence is a reality we will be sure to face in the long run (this is a fact). However, the US economy will be booming once again as the new "it" innovation hits the waves allowing for greater standard of living as well as increased gains in productivity.

    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.

    I would say MOST that oppose the Bill understand completely as well they have a basic grasp of the Constitution...

    Those that favored it... NEITHER!

    Reconstructing Iraq is costing half what the new healthcare bill will cost us as a new entitlement. Just sayin.

    I agree with you about the social conservatives. I really do. They disgust me. However, the things they would like try to shove through could be more easily repealed and far less expensive than what the libtards just did to the country. What they just did will take years to fix.

    It takes very little effort for crazed liberals to PLANT someone in the rally to yell those things. They did in the McCain crowds during the presidential campaign; why wouldn't they do it yesterday.

    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....



    Wheel chair tax


    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.

    I was moving between jobs for 10 years. IT industry. I have decided I am living here and I'll work what's available. I have much greater peace of mind.

    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.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    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.
