Let's hope this gets shot down on Constitutional grounds and soon.

    Uninsured patients accounted for nearly 18 percent of emergency department visits nationally, 34 percent were billed to private insurance, and 6 percent were billed to worker's compensation, military health plan administrator Tricare, and other payers, according to the latest News and Numbers from the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality."

    ER Visits Mostly by Medicare, Medicaid Recipients

    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.
    Are you trying to say that we should be a democracy and not a republic?

    EDIT: Link is here.

    The way I see it, Republicans should not have gone down the road of misrepresentations and attacks. IMHO, this is what killed their attempts to stop this bill, which I agree is bad. Also, IMHO, the Tea Partiers are an albatross around the neck of the GOP, and tonight's vote is proof of that.

    Will post the results of the Reconciliation vote in this thread, just as soon as they come in.
    It is the Democrats who have been misrepresenting this bill. The Republicans know more about what's in it than many of the Democrats (who won't tell you anyway, even if they did know).

    Remember Pelosi said, "We have to pass this bill so we can find out what's in it." Can you imagine anything more stupid? This is who they are.

    I think people confuse preventative medicine with preventative lifestyle choices.

    I don't care what they say.
    You want to make a good point about why you support/oppose legislation, use facts.

    I'm quite tired of the 40% support, 30% oppose and 30% want an enema.
    It's tired, old and doesn't do anything to help people make good choices.

    No, I am saying that if you quote polls, do it honestly.
