    A healthy work force across the board is what our country needs to apply any stimulus properly.
    The Welfare Class wants it. Since when does the minority rule?

    The theory behind a stimulus is that it takes money away from people and distributes it in a less efficient way. If you call that stimulus, then this health bill is 100% stimulus.

    Trashing our troops? Please, can you try not making things up?

    After a fashion, I suppose you are right:

    It stimulates job destruction

    It stimulates income reduction

    It stimulates health care cost inflation

    It stimulates health insurance premium inflation

    It stimulates reductions in the availability of care.

    Wow....all that stimulus, and a cloistered government committee to dictate how you will be treated when you are ill to boot.

    Americans want reform, but not what is currently being discussed.

    Goldendog, I think this line says it all. You speak of the broader workforce and the American people in general and the conservative looks only at him/herself. It's typical myopic individualism. There is no way to explain to them what it is like to care for others more than themselves and to try and make a more just society.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    I think what it's stimulating is hyperbolic reactionism and over the top misinformation by you.

    You can try to make this a personal attack, but the real problem is that this plan is WORSE for society at large than our current system.

    Oh lord, you couldn't be more wrong. I suppose you are listening to the CBO and Lewin Group again. You go ahead and be mislead. All the rest of us will fight for what is best for this country and counter the misinformation of the right.
