    They don't have the authority to pass such a law. They have no power to do so.

    Mmm... I think... both.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes, and vehemently so.

    What else was he going to say after promising for months that families making under $250,000 would see "no tax increase in any form"?

    Seems like pretty standard political pandering to me. In any case, do you have a link to Obama's statement to that effect?
    Here's a video of one instance:


    "Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."
    John F. Kennedy

    Ugh! Is it so bad you had to link the version with Barbara Streisand?

    So how about a regulation that pre existing can not be used by insurance companies to raise premiums or deny coverage
