    it doesn't seem very productive, does it? these people aren't there for answers, they are there to obstruct. that's it. they should go the hell home and educate themselves, come back and ask questions with merit. that's what i think should happen.

    You may be ignorant enough to want to ignore history, but that's really no excuse. I've told you the problem, I've provided you with many examples. Under no feasible circumstances is it either wise or desirable to create any government programs, and then you can consider that THIS proposal of your Messiah is going to take over a full sixth of the US economy.
    Quit throwing out strawmen and state exactly how you are going to lose your private health insurance coverage. It's my understanding that the House bill allows for existing policies to be grandfathered in, so that people who currently have individual health insurance policies will not lose coverage.

    If they choose not to?

    Besides, who says the only legit reason to be there is to ask questions? How about just letting legislators know they're opposed?

    do you really believe the 70 year old woman protesting against this bill has READ it? lmao.......
    I would be willing to bet that more 70 year old women have read it then senators.

    I have read a fair amount of it myself and I am against it by what I have read.

    fine.....just so we all know they are for the most part ignorant sheep who are opposed because someone convinced them obama was going to kill their grandma and take away their medicare.

    again, they oppose, republicans oppose, yet offer nothing as a solution. nothing. as i mentioned earlier, i'm happy to discuss legitimate reasons for opposition.

    and btw, i will always defend my vote for obama.

    I have not validated this so dont hold me to it just yet. But it has been reported on FOX that amendments have been added to the bill that Reps say will force everyone that is not currently insured by 2013 onto the governments insurance. This along with the fines for employers that do not cover employees with insurance being cheaper then actually covering them means most new employers will not cover thier employees and current companies may drop coverage in preference of the fine. You can see where this might lead. Oh wait didnt Obama say that a single payer plan was his ultimate goal but that it wouldnt be possible immediately that it would probably take 10-15 years to achieve.

    I do not think that many actually believe that the government is out to kill granny. What they are afraid of is nothing in the bill can stop this from happening. Why take the chance?

    just as good insurance coverage is a selling point for potential employees now, it will remain so. many companies currently cover their employees, they certainly don't have to.

    i don't see this changing much, and i'd like to see those amendments. maybe we should wait and see the final version, hmmm?
