    Pelosi: Health bill is 'stimulus package'

    Pelosi: Health bill is 'stimulus package' - POLITICO Live - POLITICO.com

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that the health care bill "is a stimulus package."

    “I do think the health care bill is a stimulus package. I do believe the energy bill was, (with the) creation of new green jobs, a jump start,” Pelosi said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”


    So everything the Anti-Republicans vomit forth is now a "stimulus package", regardless of how many jobs it destroys or debt it creates? If the government spends it, it must be stimulative?

    Are their "ideas" really reduced to this?

    Americans want it..antiAmericans get to set on the sideline that they earned and watch and learn how to care for their country and not just care about their selfserving desires to regain power after losing everything for good reason.

    A healthy work force across the board is what our country needs to apply any stimulus properly.

    Setting aside for the moment that everything you just said is demonstrably false and utter balderdash, you do realize that none of what you said makes Queen Nancy's statements correct, or even grounded in reality.

    The health insurance bill is not a stimulus bill, and it reeks of Anti-Republican desperation to force their government takeover of health insurance on an unwilling American public that she feels compelled to resort to such an asinine and demonstrably disprovable assertion.

    Really? You talk about truth and reality?..log off. Get up off the thrown and go outside. The real truthful world is out there waiting for you..go see.

    It won't hurt.

    A healthy US population across the board is important to any economic stimulus that may be applied to help our ecomony.

    Remember the economy the one that Bush and Cheney trashed?

    ROFLOL. This reminds me of the scene in Young Frankenstein where Frau Blücher is trying to offer YF an assortment of drinks, and he keeps turning down one choice after another until she blurts out "Ovaltine!"

    "economy" (there's a delicious irony in the fact that you mangle the English language more than President Bush.)

    Keeping this post within the topic of the thread, if that were the case the health insurance bill would make meaningful measures to encourage preventive medicine (rather like is found in the Republican alternative HR2520: The Patients' Choice Act), instead of subsidizing sickness, which is the model used in Taxachussetts in Commonwealth Care.

    And Dear Leader rationing health insurance is going to bring on a golden age of prosperity? A pyrite prosperity--looks good at a distance, is worthless up close.

    How apt that you would offer up a fool's-gold sort of argument.

    Quite so....and Frankenstein's response was a decided "NOTHING!!!"

    One hopes the American people will have a similar answer.

    So were you willing to accept Bush and Cheney looking like lying warmongers from a distance and upclose they were worthless conmen looking only to serve their own party and not America. Their stimulus package was called Bush's "Surge". While making every attempt to hide the true cost of it from Americans.

    Is that why Dear Leader is replicating the surge strategy in Afghanistan, with the same players as were successful in Iraq?

    Bush and Cheney surged out of Afghanistan....Obama is surging troops in after Bush quit and ran off to avenge his daddy in Iraq...while knowingly not properly equipping and trashing our soldiers everystep of the way.
