    The one or two good parts of the bill don't displace th other 1995 pages of bad stuff.

    Yet those so vehemently opposed to the bill only give one or two bad things this bill includes. Those are namely the paper work issue and the fines.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Really? Do you get news in Louisville? European countries are going bankrupt over their socialist model and healthcare contributes significantly to those costs. Tell me where you get yhour information?

    How about the fact that the federal government has no constitutional authority in running a health care system

    Please provide a source that says healthcare costs are a major contributor to the current global economic recession.

    WASHINGTON -- The deployment of nearly 50,000 National Guard troops from 50 states as part of the Hurricane Katrina relief effort has exposed debilitating equipment shortages in a force already stretched thin by three years of deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Lt. Gen. Steven Blum, head of the National Guard, said in an interview that the needs of Guard units overseas have left troops at home without modern communications and night vision equipment, as well as the vehicles necessary for Guard troops to traverse neighborhoods flooded in the wake of Katrina.

    Guard units stretched thin

    AP) The National Guard is stretched so thin by simultaneous assignments in Iraq and the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast that leaders in statehouses and Congress say it is time to reconsider how the force is used.

    National Guard Stretched Thin - CBS News

    Army National Guard units that'd already served the maximum time on active duty, in combat, are being told that the rules have changed, and they're again being called back for Iraq service.

    It doesn't matter that those Guard units were ordered to leave virtually all of their equipment in Iraq and have had none of it replaced so that they might actually train for the eventuality that has befallen them. Nor does it matter that there may not be equipment and vehicles waiting for them in Iraq when they get there.

    An Army Stretched Thin
    Raise the authorized troop strengths for state national gaurds. We don't need a 2,000 page bill to do that.

    You're suggesting I'm wrong. It's time to man up and prove it.

    The federal government has always expanded and will continue to do so. Name me one time in history where any party has shrunken the influence of the federal government.

    Just because the human filth that is the left statists and right statists refuse to do anything about doesnt mean we as tax paying citizens should continue to put up with it.
