    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    Everyone needs to buy an expensive cable package to ensure that we combat depression with entertainment, to combat obesity by providing quality exercise programing, to fight against unhealthy food by forcing everyone to have access to cooking stations that teach you how to prepare healthy dishes. There are so many people dying at home and suffering from depression because they don't have extended cable service. Granny is lonely at home and she is suffering because all she has is 13 channels. We must fight against all this by forcing everyone to purchase an $800 cable package so they may have access to quality programming that will ensure a wonderful future. If you don't buy this cable package you must pay a $500 fine per month. Just think about it, everyone will know how to make healthy dishes, everyone can workout to the best trainers, and everyone can watch a transparent government on many c-span like networks. Wait never mind... scratch that last one. Anyway, for the good of America we are mandating that you should buy this cable package, or pay the fine.

    Much of the bill is wanted by most people. A few other things like taxes for people making over 250K gives republicans a coniption fit.

    Most people opposed to the bill don't even know what it is.
    Spin? Well if it's a spin to state the unarguable fact that the majority of America is against this legislation then yes, I am spinning. It doesn't matter if "much" of the bill is wanted, the undisputed facts are that the majority of America did not want this to pass, and their representatives did not reflect what their constituents wanted. Most people who support the bill don't know what it is.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    progressives, how do you expand medicare and medicaid by thirty one mil while at the same time cutting their funding by half a T?

    does that not seem like a lot of money to you?

    why haven't you thought of these things?

    aren't you a more responsible thinker than that?

    i can see the president isn't

    but i thought perhaps you were, or at least, you wanted to be...

    how do you expand m and m by 31 mil while cutting funding MASSIVELY?

    Prof you're making yourself look like a typical Republican/conservative stereotype.

    People will only mock, ridicule and dismiss you.

    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.
    avg: 40 favor 50.5 opposed http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epo...plan-1130.html

    One thing for sure, a whopping majority of the country doesn't like the way the country is going.

    someone is deprived of cable and what is their consequence

    someone is deprived of health care and what is their consequence

    hopefully, you will notice a difference

    which should then tell you that your comparison was a lame one

    I wish all those old people would get out of my way in Walmart with their slow pokey scooter chairs. That wasn't you in front of me, was it?

    No one is deprived of healthcare. It's illegal to deny someone medical care when they need it. My comparison is pretty accurate, they are forcing everyone into buying a private service or making them pay a fine. It's unconstitutional and illegal. If the Republicans did this I'm sure the left would say they are in bed with big insurance business. Yet when Democrats do it it's to serve the people.
