    too late for that

    NewsHour Extra: With Reconciliation Tactic, Democrats Forge Ahead on Health Care Reform | March 5, 2010 | PBS

    heck, only a week before the dems were prepared to DEEM the damn thing

    How House Democrats can pass health care reform without voting for the health care bill. - By John Dickerson - Slate Magazine

    fdr and lbj knew different, knew better---you cannot pass major reform IN AMERICA along purely petty and impassioned party lines, at least not without severe political repurcussions

    roosevelt's social security act of 1935 received 84% republican support in the house and 76% opposition backing in joe robinson's senate

    lbj's civil rights act of 1964, as a matter of fact, enjoyed considerably MORE republican than dem assent, 80% of reds voting aye downstairs, 82% in upper house

    johnson's medicare bill, 1965, won 51% of house reds and 43% in mike mansfield's chamber

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    of course, obama doesn't understand these things

    he thinks you can DEEM on a dime and not be damned

    party on, progressives, seeya at the polls

    as well as in the courts, in the capitols, in the chambers

Some, like me, got my own insurance when I went to college through my school. Then when people graduate they begin working and get on the insurance plan of their employer. Some people go to grad school and have to switch insurance companies to whatever company is working with their new school. Even after people are in the work force, some quit working for a company and start their own business and then have to pay for insurance out of pocket. Each time one switches health insurance, the new company screens for preexisting conditions and it is not uncommon for people to get rejected based on this. So again, what is your suggestion to get these people coverage?
    Ever heard of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ?? I suggest you read about it to find out how wrong your post is.

    Well, since you brought it up, let's examine your signature and your claims, for consistency...

    Give a poor man a fish and you've created a Democrat
    Teach a poor man to fish and you've created a Centrist


    Please tell me JohnnyC, if the following largest budget items (what..60% of our tax revenue?) in the U.S. federal budget are most similar to teaching fishing, or handing out fish.

    1. Social security
    2. Defense
    3. Medicaire
    4. Medicaid

    It will hopefully edeucate you to the inappropriatness of the behavior that you were engaged in. Refraing from that will indeed advance the thread.
