    I'm not bothered by this. It was a juvenile action, a criminal offense, and stupid. With all that said, the Democrat party has shown zero respect for the will of the people and treated everyone like serfs, you do not do that to Americans and not expect someone to push back.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually, its any time right wingers get drug a little closer to modernity, this happens. For the vast majority of Americans, this bill that just passed changes nothing at all in regards to their healthcare and health insurance. They won't notice anything good or bad.

    However, once again we have those on the extreme right screaming communism and socialism because, MY GOD, the federal government actually did something. You have the olds out yelling about socialism in one breath, and screaming about cuts to Medicare in the other, yet they are so ignorant they don't see they hypocrisy in it. I know people with their kids on SCHIP that are all up in arms over "Obama's Socialist Agenda". I would put money on at least 50% of the teabaggers out there benefiting from socialism in some form.

    I really wish that we could just live in the everyone is on their own world these guys advocate for just a year. Half these supposed self reliant conservatives would be a charity case inside of a week.

    You don't know me. I'm equally outraged when EITHER side uses or advocates violence against our elected officials for doing their job. Shame on the both of you and anyone else who does the same. You come in here posting of following the Constitution then spit on it with your threats of violence against our representatives because you don't like that elections have consequences.


    WOW!! hollysweetmotherof mosses.. Amazing that is what you read when I wrote: "We can't advocate"

    making stuff up?... .I suppose that better than arguing a loosing point... good call

    BTW GINA....THAT wasn't just a liberal stretch, that just a outright, DAMN LIE!

    Your assumption being that the majority of the people don't want this...I think your belief is mistaken. The majority of people who voted for Obama (the majority of voters) realized that he was going to do something with healthcare. You presume that because YOU are bothered by this, that everyone is. I suspect that is largely not the case.

    I think a lot of people don't like the bill because of the size and complexity of it. Out of those, a small minority on the hardcore right is, in their typical nutjob fashion, screaming revolution, throwing bricks through windows, throwing their wolf t-shirts on, and going out protesting with their teabagging friends.

    The problem for Republicans is that while the bill itself is unpopular, many aspects of it are very popular. I don't see too much support out there for bringing back pre-existing conditions, doing away with insurance reforms and so on.

    Please don't pretend that the far left doesn't have a similar nutjob revolutionary brick-throwing contingent. We all know they do. But they aren't representative of the majority of liberals, and these idiots aren't representative of the majority of conservatives. It is what it is. This is a fringe act.

    Of course there are nutjobs on the left, there are less of them though. At least in this country there is. In europe its the other way around. Moreover, the DNC does not foster "nutjobness" in its party base like the Republicans do in their party base. All this garbage about socialism, death panels, birthers, and so on has been touted by Republicans in office just like it has by the nutjob teabaggers.

    Exactly. Obama and the Democrats who were voted in 2008, were elected (by the majority as you point out) on a platform that included health care reform. For anyone to now act as if they pulled it out of a hat is ridiculous.

    Oh, bull****. I've worked with idiots from ALF since the early 1990s. There is a huge contingent of far left radicals in the U.S. Stop with the hypocrisy already, and stop feeding the us vs. them mentality.

    The Will of the people?????

    Does anyone understand how a Republic works.

    They were voted into office!!

    And the majority of the people who actually understand what the bill is trying to do, hope it succeeds...

    The far-right partisan sheep blindly following their sith masters while guzzling down gallons of dark-red kool aide... They don't like the bill.

    "socialism, communism, less freedom... yes, master... Yes, Sean, tell me what to say, tell me what to think... I am your servant.... Ann Coulter is a woman despite her having male body parts..."

    The gullibility of the far-right teabagger is amazing...
