    Stupak is an empty suit. I hope he gets replaced by a Republican.

    It was the persons opinion based on narrow facts that didn't take into account ALL of the facts.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    That would make every single projection an opinion, no matter how factually based.

    I've read other studies that claim 14% of each patient's bill is for malpractice insurance alone.

    That's significant.

    No, its like if I asked you if you had any potato chips and you said "no" because while factually you didnt in your posession, you had a stash in the center console.

    And... if you think unemployment is bad now, just wait until the massive new tax increases on small businesses take effect.
