    Highly unlikely. James has it correct. This for show and nothing more.

    I wonder how this will go down:

    1) We're going to strip health care from millions
    2) Remember that drug donut hole that screwed elderly up the butt? Yeah we're bringing that back.
    3) All you 25 and 26 year old students? Guess what? Up yours.

    Sounds like a real election winner there.

    Yes, all true, but that's without the spin. After the spin, it will be, we're restoring the best health care system in the world. God Bless America!

    Yeah, that's EXACTLY what happened during the last health care debate, and exactly why the health care bill became so popular and Republicans are in such big trouble... oh wait

    Why exactly is it supposed to be different when the exact same debate happens again?

    More government isn't the problem. More access but doing nothing about supply will only raise prices or lead to shortages. Government can never avoid this basic economic fact. Read here to see how the capitalist form of health care was discarded.

    Re: Boehner: GOP Will Repeal Health Care Law

    we won't take on the pig comprehensively

    unlike this idiot administration we know how to DO politics

    we'll take on the most poisonous, pernicious pieces

    and we'll be praised

    such as the mandate, the seiu exemption, the secret deal with phrma, the unfunded mandate on the states, the half T cuts to m&m, the double counting of quarter T's, the taxes on payroll, employers, device makers and other industries not heavily concentrated in nebraska and florida...

    we're going to take the house

    Dem Turnout Falls Off A Cliff - Hotline On Call

    ask david obey

    and we are going to do our work, piecemeal

    that's how one governs

    in america

    you have to pick positions that are popular, then proceed with them to completion

    you don't CRAM, you don't DEEM

    not without real consequences

    I would rather Congress amend the new laws rather than clean the slate, depriving people of the incentives they received when this first passed.

    The problem I see with the healthcare bill is that it really does nothing to actually control costs. The CBO scoring includes many things that will never actually happen (such as estimated GDP growth rates, medicare reimbursement issues etc..) and their 20 year estimate has costs going through the roof...

    Something needed to be done, but this bill has done nothing to solve the problem. Health care is not a right, and should not be treated as such.

    So what the hell is your point? Do you have something to say about the health care bill, and effort to repeal it? Because the only message I get from your post is that we should stop being so democratic.

    Was that a joke? The amount of facts that got pushed out by the media could be counted on one hand.

    Republicans are not going to repeal it. Seriously, merely suggesting you're going to bring back the donut hole will destroy the elderly vote.
