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

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Obama and Democrats' Health Care Plan
    I linked to that. Yes, it's 50.5 % against. About a 10 % spread.

    We Republicans may be typical stereotypes, but it's looking more and more like we are the only ones getting it, while others are in a slow boat headed down the river of De Nile.

    Not every Republican/conservative is acting like a preteen girl that just met the Jonas Brothers.

    The hysterics need to stop.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I'm not sure I like it. I don't even really know all of what's in it. But if healthcare wasn't already FUBAR, gov't wouldn't have had to intervene.

    I think it''s good that kids can stay on their parent healthcare til 25 years of age. i think it's also good that you can not be denied based on a pre-existing condition. i think there are definitely some good things in there.

    Can you provide evidence to support this statement?

    Not trying to be a smart ass, but if you have a source that puts a dollar figure to the damage I'd like to see it.

    Well, I have to agree on this particular issue, the GOP'er's do have the edge on public opinion. But, there are other issues they are soooo out of touch with the masses on. Take a guess on what percentage of Americans thought it was a mistake to invade Iraq. Take a guess on what the polls reflect as for who is doing a better job in the Iraqi war.

    You gotta remember, just last week, the poll averages, while indicating a huge majority thought that, overall, congress was doing very poorly, the majority polled still opined that they prefered to have a democrat congress again, next election. Suggesting they lay more blame at the feet of the GOP for congress's disfunction. (I know I do.) But that was pretty close. I suspect that today, the GOP got a few points bump. But how long will that hold? It's still neck and neck.

    Not really, unfortunately. I had heard that at the end of 10 years, after collecting taxes for those 10 years and operating at full measure of expense for 6 years, that the yearly cost of the bill going to Obama is $200 billion/year. I cannot find evidence of this after a brief web search. Furthermore, I do not know the cost of the Reconciliation Bill going to the Senate.

    The Iraq AND Afghanistan wars cost $175 billion/year. I believe the Iraqi portion is $105 billion/year.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    I expect this bill will have a restraining order slapped on it to stop it from going into effect and all the lawsuits combined and then it will end up in the SCOTUS....

    I don't see how the government can force you to buy health insurance and fine you if you don't do it....Justice Kennedy will decide this thing by and 5-4 vote in favor of the people of the U.S. and Obama socialist health care will end up in the trash can where it belongs.........


    Take it to the bank...........

    CNN poll: 59 percent of Americans oppose just-passed health-reform bill | Jay Bookman

    However, a couple of other numbers in the poll ought to undercut that optimism. Asked who they trust more to handle changes in health care, Obama or congressional Republicans, Obama remains the clear favorite, by 51-39 percent. That will be important, because once this bill clears its last congressional hurdle, Obama rather than Congress will be seen as its chief defender and proponent.
