    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    more water for the central valley's cardoza and costa

    lots of bribes still in there and not enough time for people even to read the bill to find em all
    McConnell and company have warned these guys that their appointments will be filibustered, so it's a waste to vote for the bill based on such bribes.

    Kucinich said this morning on Fox that Obama promised him this is just PHASE I, and that a public option is still in the works for PHASE II.

    So I ask, how can we go by a CBO score that is only a small part of a bigger plan to come? (They already found another $371 billion additional cost this morning, btw)

    As to the taxes that are going to be raised. In case folks forgot we have a $1.3 trillion deficit so who thinks taxes do not have to be raised to help offset that. >>

    It'll be a good excuse to raise the super rich taxes to 90 percent. That's what it was back in the sixties. Athletes, movie stars, and execs pulling down $20 million a year will just have to squeak by with a mere $2 million.

    Estimates of future profits have have no credibility unless you can compare it with the future losses of doing nothing over the same time period.

    Re: CBO Numbers [have just come out]

    in normal american politics there is just way too much poison in and surrounding this bill for it to have even the slightest chance

    unfortunately, this party in power is not normal

    american politics, however, still is

    the party will be replaced

    patience

    She doesn't care. The academicians in this land will trumpet her from the highest hill. "The evil Republicans took away what Nancy gave humanity." That's her vindication.

    So, so sad.
