    I'm criticizing the fact the you support it for ???? some reason.
    I have yet to understand what reason that is though.

    It's not an assumption, it is truth.
    Fixed income can be $100k to $10k, that is an arbitrary judgment.

    They whole reason the CBO said that the increase would occur is because of additional insurance mandates.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Had it been about health care it would have addressed the issues that needed to be fixed.

    Doctors said they didn't want this, The only Doctors that were in favor of it were the White House Janitors in white lab coats at phony photo op.
    The polls indicated broad support among physicians for the health care legislation. I think you are misinformed and bought into that fake NEJM poll.

    Yes, they support reform.....that's not what was passed though.

    Doctor's support "healthcare reform", yes. That doesn't mean they support Obama's version of healthcare reform.

    Costly ER still draws many now insured - The Boston Globe

    Thousands of newly insured Massachusetts residents are relying on emergency rooms for routine medical care, an expensive habit that drives up healthcare costs and thwarts a major goal of the state's first-in-the-nation health insurance law.

    Doctors and counselors working the front lines of emergency care say a major reason patients still flock to their doors for routine care is that there are too few primary care physicians in Massachusetts. Some newly insured patients are waiting months for their first visits.

    Source?
    Go to any US Military Hospital.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    underlying everything is truth like gravity:

    YOU CAN'T EXPAND MEDICARE AND MEDICAID BY 12 MIL WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CUTTING THEIR ALREADY SEVERELY STRAINED BUDGETS BY HALF A TRIL

    americans get it even if the clueless klutz in charge doesn't

    it's why the PIG is so unpopular
