    From the prof mindless linking:

    “I think the governors would all agree that what we don’t want from the federal government is unfunded mandates,’’ said Governor Jim Douglas of Vermont, a Republican who is the group’s incoming chairman.

    (so what they want is the feds to pay for it. Sounds like single payer to me.)

    Although many governors said significant change was needed, . . .

    (don't forget this preface to their comments.)

    The governors said in interviews and public sessions that the bills being drafted in Congress would not do enough to curb the growth in health spending.

    (again, like I have said, they didn't do too much, but did too little.)

    I agree with them, a single payer system would do more. The bill did not go far enough.

    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.

    here's just SOME of the poison packed in obamacare:

    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:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/02/bu.../02health.html

    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

    substance, baby!

    nothin beats it

    Not sure what you mean about get anything. I see politicians like anyone else. They have a job, some are diliegent, some not so much, some lazy, some not so much, some corrupt, a couple less so. But, we ahve a system. We go through a process. And we can overthrow every election cycle. Taht's the way it works.

    Yep, and when Dems are overthrown during an election cycle, the ones remaining take their marbles and run to another state when they disagree with the majority elected by the people.

    Yes, they were voted out. And we may argue over their actions, but that is a different topic. When officals on in seession, doing their job, voting, you can't call working within the system theft.
