    Only problem with your hypothesis is that no one will be benefitting from it then.

    No one? So someone without insurance who now has it, like those families can now add, won't be benefitting?

    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.

    Good politicians address the problems of the nation and come up with solutions to fix them. Some solutions work, some don't. Afghanistan hasn't worked out too well, but you know what? At least Bush tried to address the problem of terrorism. The "War on Drugs" has been horribly inefficient but you know what? At least Nixon tried to do something about drugs in America instead of ignoring the problem.



    This is a problem. Republicans have been ignoring it. That haven't had either the balls or the brains to come up with any solutions other than giving more tax breaks to those wealthy enough to get good insurance for their families. I'm not big on huge government programs but in this case, I'm glad Obama and the Democrats in office are trying to do something about it and hr2 is still an extremely far cry away from universal health care.

    often times government involvement causes more problems than it solves

    especially when its actions are of dubious constitutional validity

    if one believes government's intentions are always altruistic such faith can be excused

    Very true, but so far the only problem with health care reform that you've articulated is that poor little you might have to pay more in taxes. Some of us don't consider that a problem. At least most conservatives have some legitimate practical objection to it (even if I consider their objections to be misguided), but in your case it's all about you, you, you.

    The tiny number of people with kids returning to their parent's insurance plans will be infinitesimal compared to the number of people mad that their premiums and taxes have increased due to this bill.

    Insurance rates have been historically out pacing inflation for a long time now. With or with out this bill it is a question of how much.

    of course you don't consider it a problem that OTHERS have to pay more taxes

    and to claim I am being self centered after that rot is hilarious

    maybe if you are so supportive of free healthcare you and the rest who believe in such nonsense should pony up the money


    MYobjections are based on the constitution. Your attacks on me are misplaced
