    No idea what you are trying to say here.
    No surprise, there.

    Kinda what the banks/investment firms did before the economic collapse this country, if not the world, now finds itself in, huh? Used loans to hedge their bets...took high risks with other people's money in the hopes of gaining big rewards?

    Seriously, I get where you're coming from, but that's why I find this issue so ridiculous.

    Fiscal responsibility has been one of the main issues Conservatives/Republicans have been complaining about concerning the Obama presidency from day-1 and when he finally begins to take action to pay down the deficit you guys denounce him for it. He's going to have to cut spending somewhere at some point. Why not let it start with a program the taxpayers didn't willingly buy into in the first place? This makes perfectly good sense to me and it is the responsible thing to do. But instead of applauding his sound judgement, you (Republicans...well, some of you anyway) put his efforts down.

    Amazing...

    If you're referring to the health reform bill, it's going to cost a ton either way it goes - whether a bill is passed or the government does nothing.

    Medicare cost will continue to go up. Health care cost will continue to rise. Insurance premium will continue to increase. So, you either try to do something about it by changing the regulations in the hopes of bringing down the costs or you do nothing and hope capitalism will correct the problem. And seeing that we live in a capitalistic country, I doubt if we see an decrease in health care cost overall anytime soon, if ever....not unless the private sector is made to change their ways.

    No, it's not a surprise you are not clear.

    That's what banks do. It's how they make money.

    It's already been illustrated how it's going to cost a ton more than if the government did nothing.

    Or how about a misleading one? I have heard of those too, and that is what you did. You cannot take out the exact amount, unless you know exactly how much you need, which was not known at the time.

    Now, let me ask you a real question: what should Obama do with this money left over from the Bush administration?

    Anything that kills your arguement, or confuses you is now misleading?

    Nice spin! No, I could not make heads or tails of what you where arguing. Explain it clearer, and I will happily respond, but without knowing what you are trying to say, it's kinda difficult to say anything.

    And I note you ducked the question I asked of you. No surprise there.

    You don't understand why your wrong, nor will you, so what's the point of addressing your question?

    Again, nice spin. When faced with a question you cannot answer, you just say "you would not understand" so you don't have to answer. Very clever...
