    Preventative medicine is only cheaper on an individual level but not on a group level.


    Do your homework.

    Just quit man, it doesn't matter how many support/oppose it.
    What matters is whether or not it's a good idea.

    After the rational voting public sorts through the lies and exaggerations of the GOP, the democrats will come out smelling like a rose and probably end up winning more seats come November.
    The republicans should have come up with their own bill when they had total control. Now they just look like a bunch of crybabies.

    And somehow you forgot a few polls.

    PublicPolicyPolling 49 against, 45 for

    Gallop 48 to 45

    AP 43 to 41

    Can't imagine why you skipped those polls, when I linked to RealClearPolitics that had the poll averages. Oh wait, I know, it's because those did not support what you wanted people to think.

    Actually, she's on the correct side and the "right" side (no pun intended).

    The "left" is on the side that is taking us backward, into darkness and oppression.

    Do your homework.
    You are just plain wrong. In big city hospitals the ERs are flooded with people that do not have insurance. And preventative medicine is overwhelmingly cheaper at every level. You might want to do your homework instead of copying off your neighbors paper.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    well...

    LOL!

    i would THINK that anyone who wants to be taken, err, umm, hrmph, seriously would need to address some of the planetary sized problems president pie-in-the-face has pushed down our windpipes

    how are you gonna pay for more than half of this by rooting out wfa?

    LOL!

    that's absurd!

    how are you gonna expand medicare and medicaid, already facing more than THIRTY TRILLION DOLLARS of UNFUNDED LIABILITY, by adding 31 million more miserable schmucks to them all while at the same time cutting their funding by HALF A TRILLION dollars?

    at times like these

    medicare starts bleeding red in 2017 (want the link?)

    how is johnny gonna come up with all this money to buy blue cross, his HOUSE is already completely underwater?

    at times like these

    when you take all that cash from poor johnboy, what's that gonna do to CONSUMER SPENDING?

    the poor kid's already on 100% top ramen

    or haven't you talked to him lately

    times is BAD, really really BAD

    at times like these

    i would think decent discussers would need to ADDRESS some of these rather raunchy realities

    or not

    no skin off my teeth

    Exactly. The car is speeding off a cliff, there are three options:
    1) Take foot off of pedal and hit brakes
    2) Do nothing, let things run their course
    3) Read a book.
    If 20% want to do nothing, 20% want to hit the brakes, and 60% want to read a book, anything short of hitting the brakes is still a stupid idea. I don't know where all of this appeal to majority has been coming from lately, but.......ah nvm.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually he is right. It sounds wrong, and I was shocked when I found it out, but preventative medicine is not a money saver.

    I only made it that far and the irony overwhelmed me.
