    Yes. It means we will still get our public option in a few years.

    That would help.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I quite agree. Which is why I find objection to reform so befuddling.

    All you ever care about is what YOU pay not what the taxpayer has to pay or fund. The true cost of healthcare will never be reduced until you define and address them. That doesn't matter to you, does it? As is typical with most liberals you love bigger govt. that has yet to solve a social problem. You support a President who has yet to be accurate on any prediction. Debt doesn't matter to you because you don't understand it. Keep spouting rhetoric and ignoring reality.

    Now won't that be just wonderful? Don't you have an concept of history or reality? Like far too many personal responsibility doesn't resonate in your world and I am sure like many this is about someone else not you. If you truly cared so much about someone else, you wouldn't be supporting a party that keeps people dependent and has to use victims.

    Everytime I see people like you posting comments promoting the Public Option, I always remember Glenn Beck's book, Arguing with Idiots. Nothing is ever going to change your mind and no matter how unsuccessful govt. is in solving social problems, arrogance prevails and liberals promote another group throwing money at the problem.

    Legal costs and settlements are part of the cost of healthcare just as state and federal regulations that prevent competition as well as a tax structure that affects prices. None of that is addressed in this bill. Show me where tort reform was addressed in the Obama bill?

    We're all paying before reform. You don't seem to mind paying now. Are you not understanding my point?

    I do indeed understand your point but this bill solves none of that and adds more that the taxpayer will have to cover. The fines for those that do not purchase healthcare do not offset the costs of healthcare for the new individuals covered, most of whom have preexisting conditions that are most costly. Don't you understand that?
