    None of you far-righties want to pay for all the stuff you want and use every single day. Freeloaders.

    I still have to pay for them. Why should I have to pay for YOUR police, fire, roads, libraries...etc. I shouldn't have to pay for you to have any of those things, whether it is State or Federal. It doesn't matter...either way I'm paying for your protection.

    i hear you, tho i hope it's not most

    there's a far more effective way to get across, in my opinion

    it involves linking a lot

    Oh... I didn't notice the 3:00 left. I thought Grim posted the final vote.

    I was making an extreme parody of your comment. Depends on the person... and the issue, really.

    And even linking is not always effective. Sometimes linking can be very selective.

    Here are some ideas.

    For example, the Resurgent Republic poll showed voters support, by 70% to 23%, the ability to buy health insurance across state lines. They back proposals that would make it possible for workers to take their health insurance from job to job by 53% to 36%. And they believe frivolous lawsuits drive up health-care costs by 53% to 38%.
    Other GOP initiativesólike allowing people to save more of their paychecks tax free for out-of-pocket medical expenses, and letting small businesses pool risk to get the same discounts that big companies getóare similarly popular. President Obama said after the midterm election results that "he'd be happy to consider . . . ideas for how to improve" health care. Fortunately, Republicans have a ready agenda with widespread public backing.

    then your corresponsdent can argue with the link

    links allow one to avoid getting personal

    personalities are for adolescents

    Why ever it was, it didn't work out very well for most of them.
    and tom perriello's strategy didn't help him, either

    whereas joe donnelly's attacks against pelosi saved him his job, by a whisker

    If the American public is so furious about insurers no longer being allowed to kick them off the registers when they get sick and/or discriminate against their preexisting conditions, then why isn't this reflected in any recent poll on the subject?
    clearly, pre existings didn't enrage the electorate

    some of the grosser ingredients of obamacare, however, did

    half trillion in cuts to medicare, all the while obama simultaneously expands its already teetering enrollment by millions:

    Capitol Briefing - Senate votes to keep Medicare cuts

    er costs increase:

    ER visits, costs in Mass. climb - The Boston Globe

    doctors refuse new medicare patients:

    the doc fix passes, another quarter tril unaccounted for:

    Senate passes 1-year doc fix - The Hill's Healthwatch

    another quarter T double counted:

    Budget Office Rebuts Democratic Claims on Medicare (Update1) - Bloomberg

    our already broken backed states are burdened with 200 billion in the form of brand new medicaid enrollees

    Governors balk over what healthcare bill will cost states - The Boston Globe[/QUOTE]

    the bill that was CRAMMED and almost DEEMED is a pig

    sorry
