    How about the young ones who CAN afford insurance, but refuse to buy it?
    I know too many people who spend their money on toys and gadgets and then say they can't afford medical insurance....

    why, you should pass a law to FORCE them to do what YOU want them to, naturally

    they'll be SURE to VOTE for you if you do

    LOL!

    Maybe, or maybe not. But are you suggesting we do what they will vote for, taking a poll, or do what is right?

    obama's the most incompetent politician at the national level america has ever produced

    he's lost seniors forever, he's lost independents

    now, youth

    the enthusiasm of the youth and black vote were markedly down in virginia, jersey and massachusetts

    2009 exit polls - First Read - msnbc.com

    elections in america are won on enthusiasm

    He never said that. He said that the goal was to curb healthcare inflation. For example, if the healthcare bill results in healthcare costs only growing by 10% over the next 5 years rather than 30%, that is a good thing.

    obama in iowa city a week ago today:

    blah blah blah blah blah...

    Costs will come down for families, and businesses, and the federal government, reducing our deficit by more than $1 trillion over the next two decades. That's what reform is going to do. (Applause.)

    blah blah blah blah blah...

    I am telling you people Obama is a liar.......He is a leftist who wants to make this a socialist country....He ran as a moderate but is the most liberal president ever elected.......He has done more damage to this country in 14 months that Bush did in 8 years.......Thanks to him and his insane socialist health care program China owns us........He is unqualified to be president.......Without his teleprompter he is a mental midget........

    I know another 3 years of this country will destroy it.......

    Wake up my friends before its to late.....Kick all the left wingers out of congress in November........

    Lets hope so...because the ones that actually have a JOB WILL be paying more for it...and paying more for the interest on the deficits.

    I'm sorry, maybe I should say this again:

    A 17% increase over the next 4 years is a MASSIVE improvement over the rate increases we have seen year after year over the last decade. This is proof that the Healthcare bill is HELPING, not hurting us.


    Also, relearn what Socialism is, because if you are calling Obama's healthcare plan socialist, then you have NO idea what the word even means. And saying that it gives China ownership of the US is COMPLETELY unfounded.

    Considering they would easily be seeing a 47% increase (given a best case scenario of 10% each year, based on the last decade) WITHOUT this bill, I would say they are paying MUCH LESS under Obama's plan then they would be otherwise.
