    To fix that, you have to move to do the larger job those things are doing now. It would be best handled with a univerisal payor. As that won't happen any time soon, the next best thing is the peicemeal approach, best with a public option, and what this present bill attempts to do, rather poorly without the tpublic option.

    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.

    Still waiting for anyone promoting a single payer system to cite an example of a successful single payer system that cost what it was projected to cost and is run effeciently? How about it Boo?

We are paying the price today for that irresponsibility. Medicare and SS was never intended to be on budget meaning that excesses can by used for whatever the Congress and the President want.

    Medicare and SS are a single payer system, both are facing trillions in debt because of fiscal irresponsibility yet liberals want to compound that problem with a national healthcare program based upon a single payer system. Then they point to bogus numbers from the CBO that were created by bogus assumptions given them by the same Congress that now points to those bogus numbers. This is pure entertainment watching liberals dig their hole deeper and deeper.
    I think if they actually read the bill instead of taking Obama's word for it, they would probably want it repealed.

    Right, how arrogant when we are told "that you have to pass the bill to find out what is in the bill." The American people now know what is in the bill but the problem is liberals still ignore it even after passing it.

    Single payor healthcare doesn't work. Why would you want to do that?

    What good is a healthcare reform bill that authorizes the funding of a private army for the president and insitutes more tax laws? Why would you support that?

    That's what blows me away. Libbos readily support a bill that authorizes the president to have a private army.
