    Ok, but why should I have to pay for those that don't? According to reports 47% of people right now pay nothing for taxes, so they are taking my labor to cover their possible bad habbits.

    you pay for them now, before reform. Everytime you pay an insurance premium or a hospital bill, you pay for them. At least this way we would have more oversight and know exactly how much we're paying for them.

    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.

    It's not the only system. Just thought you should know. It can be done many different ways.

At the end of the day it will apply to unions also so i don't know why any honest person would complain that it favors unions when there are businesses that are receiving the exact same waiver.
    everyone already knows the Unions get whatthey want from liberals, hasnt stopped them yet...

    Obamacare is a disaster, its welfare on grand scale, and bad for an already broke country econmically speaking..
    we cant afford it, its another handout. reform indeed

    Conservatives are evil that just want to belittle the wroking class even more. They hate poor people. They want poor to die on the streets rather than get medical care. They hate veterans. They are anti-american. They're all racist.

    Ohhh, I beat you. You only squeezed in 6 talking points and i managed 7. I assumed thats what your goal was... ya know... just squeeze in as many worthless talking points as possible into one post...

    chew on this, smarta$$

    bottom line, and I try to "bottom line" everything, makes so much more sense than arguing opinions.

    Any time you promote the same product to everyone but at a different cost depending on circumstance, thats called redistribution of income. Namely the income of the ones that are paying the rest of the bills anyway.

    if you cant see the possibilties and almost assuredness of abuse that will be attached to Obamacare, then the horse has been led to water but cant make you drink.

    SIngle payer system based on a percentage of ones income I'm ok with, bring it on.
    But I pay 8200.oo a year for health insurance, and if this thing passes I will still be paying 8200.oo a year, and millions will have near identical coverage for pennies on the dollar in comparison... explain the fairness of that.
