    On who? The Teabag party? If every time somebody makes fun of a party on this thread they got gigged we would have no members.

    Hope you don't have money in the stock market, or mutual funds, or anything indexed.
    That is exactly what will happen. I picture it now. The economy crashing. White people becoming slaves. Men dressed in black marching down our streets and taking our children. Our women being forced to wear red hats. Our kids being told that the reason none of them have teeth today is because we passed the health bill. Oh the humanity! Oh Obama!

    You do know that every company in the market is reinvested into insurance companies right?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Voting has just begun on the third resolution, which is the reconciliation bill, to be sent to the Senate.

    Will post the outcome as soon as the voting ends.

    Come on now, one of you have to have some kind of knowledge in the bill to support that it will save us money.

    "Health care has emerged as a major issue in national debates leading up to the 2008 presidential election, with surveys finding that it ranks among the top three issues for voters, after the economy and the war in Iraq."

    Representatives doing what people voted them in office to do is historic!!!

    There is no proof either way, you have none that it will make it more expensive or less expensive. Health care has been rising every year for how many years? And, it was rising for other reasons not associated with this bill. Health Care Trends in the United States: Rising Costs Fuel the Debate

    I believe we are witnessing a Constitutional crisis,...

    Talk about taxation without representation?

    I would like to go on record now of predicting a violent backlash against the tactics used to get this passed. I can see riots forming to say the least.

    That's just what my gut is telling me,... and I have seen it too many times that when I "think" or feel something,... someone else is out there two or three steps ahead of me.

    Failing to "save us money" is hardly tantamount to destroying America, putting the final nail in the coffin of democracy, or any of the other crazy hyperbole being spewed on this thread.
    Every other country in the industrialized world has something similar to this in place, and has for years.
    We're far behind the times, from a humanitarian perspective.
    It's high time we got with the program.

    And you know what?
    America's already on its way down. We all know that.
    It's not Obama's fault; he's doing everything he can to halt the decline, but he may not be able to. Maybe nobody'll be able to. Maybe it's already too late.

    But you know what?
    Poor people are still going to need medical care, especially as more and more of us begin to descend into that category.

    No, hate that I will and my children will be paying for this bull****.

    Correctness is working for what is yours and taking care of business. Period. I do it every day.

    Do you?
