    LOL, easy to spend someone else's money, isn't it. this is a multi billion dollar program that does nothing to improve quality, quantity, or access so why implement it?

    Now your leaping away again. Stay with me.

    To get rid of Obama care and just reform healthcare without a huge government take over.

    Boo, do you really think it was better to pass a bill that fails to get to a single payor system. Now that we have a law they will not want to revisit this for another generation. If the dems were willing to give up their majority for this issue, shouldn't they have gone all the way and pass a real health care reform bill?

    So how many jobs has Obama created lately?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I really believe that some move in the right direction is better than no move. Yes. And I suspect it will be revisited sooner. In the mean time, I would hope that we would become more immune to the socialism nonsense and more open to a single payer system. I do believe it would be a better option.

    Is it? So, how do you get preexisting conditions covered (something poll say people want), cover more children (again a popular part of the bill), and have not only more but most people covered (again, something the people have said they wanted)? Exactly what will those elected do to get these things but not have a public option or a mandate?

    So let me see if I have this right, Boo claims that President's don't create jobs and you claim that Bush lost jobs? Which is it? in From 2001-2007 the Bush economy created 8.5 million jobs, but in 2008 the economy lost 2 million jobs meaning that Bush economy had a net increase of 6.5 jobs created. In Two years the Obama economy has lost 4 million jobs so the Obama economy has a long, long way to go to even catch up to the Bush economy.
