    Phase it out gradually. I never said just take it away all at once. Pay off the people who have paid into it and end it for anyone who has not currently paid into it.

    It's a little hyperbolic, but artificially lowering the cost of care means care has to be rationed by some other method.

    "A little" hyperbolic? It's outright fear mongering.

    We already ration healthcare.

    Through cost. How are you going to ration it if you're not going to do it through prices? You will determine if the cost of the operation makes sense given expected potential outcome on the patient. Basically, whether or not it is worth it to keep that person alive.

    Having the house wouldn't be enough to pass a tax break for the wealthy. However, should the GOP attain even more power than that, they would definitely pass tax breaks for the wealthiest of Americans. They always do. I would say the same thing then: That there's nothing that I could do about it.

    typical liberal lie. the tax cuts affect everyone. except of course those that don't pay taxes...and I guess that is what upsets liberals the most.

    "ooooh look, that greedy rich guy got $10K tax break and I didn't get anything."

    no **** sherlock, that evil rich guy paid $200k in taxes and you paid zippo. of course you didn't get a tax cut. you can't cut taxes any lower than 0%.

    (actually you can, earned income credit pays poor people more in refund than what they paid in.)

    and that is what pisses me off the most. the biggest proponents of "tax the rich", "the rich aren't paying their fair share" are the very people who pay the least amount of taxes of anybody.
