    Typical liberal. You would rather spend money to reinvent the wheel rather than use the one we already have.
    Are they? If a unit isn't here, how capable can they be? They're not here.

    As for anyone being typical, neither of you have explained either whatb their purpose is or why they would not be needed. The president didn't write this bill, congress did. I sugest they had a reason. It may not be a valid reason, but it sure wasn't for Obama's personal army. So, to combat it, you need to dig deeper and consider why they actually put it in the bill. As you are concerned about it, and the orginal claim was found inaccurate, I would like something more thougthful if possible.

    Using a source as an overview does not equal being enthralled. You seem to not understand the pupose of different sources. However, if you look, there are claims of cbc being baised. Don't know if any of the claims are true, but they are out there.

    Boo, this is embarrassing to watch. Have you so little concern about your own credibility that you would continue this farse about adding 40 million more to the healthcare roles will lower costs? Are you that naive to believe the CBO projections 10 years out are accurate and will result in reductions in costs? Have you even read the assumptions given the CBO? How many of those assumptions do you believe are correct? If the assumptions aren't correct what happens to the projections?

    I certainly there was a lack of leadership locally, at the state level and the federal level. But that doesn't mean there was enough help.

    There are over 450,000 members of the National Guard, yet only around 15,000 in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    You tell me if enough are still in the U.S. to protect the homeland.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    I think the bill needs to be voted on line by line. Though many say that 3/4's want the bill repealed, a clear majority favor most of the benefits given by the bill. How many people you know are against being able to insure their kids through college or not being rejected for coverage because of a pre-existing condition?
