    Re: Senate Democrats block GOP bid to repeal health care law

    i also posted LINKS to msm's as diverse as wapo, nyt, the globe, the hill, bloomberg and the cbo website to let THEM say:

    1. half a trillion cuts to medicare while expanding its enrollment by millions

    2. er traffic, promised to decrease, another prime payfor, actually turns out to go up (significantly)

    3. doctors, already in dire demand, are refusing coast to coast to take on new medicare patients

    4. the cbo says obamacare double counts a quarter tril

    5. the doc fix is off budget, another quarter T

    6. obamacare places 200 billion of unfunded burden on already bankrupt states in the form of medicaid's expansion

    7. it includes more than three quarters of a T in new taxes

    argue with THEM, ie, the msm's

    they won't see you, however, without a microscope

    disneydude said "That will be pretty funny to watch...since that was the GREAT Republican idea that made it into the bill as an alternative to the public option."
    "republican mandate---LOL!

    crammed thru senate via RECONCILIATION

    mere days after the party was willing to DEEM the damn thing

    hey, you got JOSEPH CAO's support!"

    I interpreted you laughing about the idea that it was a republican idea as your disbelief in it.

    you interpret hilarity engendered by talking points prodigiously unprofitable as...

    what was it again?

    LOL!

    And battled for pages about it!

    No....if you can think back about 9 months. The Republicans fought hard against the public option.

So in an effort to reach out and appease the Republicans, Obama scrapped the public option and offered to implement the Republican idea to require everyone to purchase insurance as a compromise. THAT was and always was a REPUBLICAN idea. I agree that it was a stupid idea and we should have held out for the public option...a much better idea. But you cannot change the fact that the mandate to purchase insurance was a Republican idea.

    Exactly. The public option was a better idea, but republicans fought it. That is how we got here.

    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.

    People with pre-existing conditions must be treated the same as the young healthy people. There can be no compromise on this issue.
