    It's something called liabilities. But then again I don't expect Liberals to understand basic concepts of profit and loss because all Liberals hate capitalism, hate the private sector, and are under the sick delusion that government has the answer to everything!

    So my husband can be insured. He's chronically ill, and needs medical insurance.
    My eldest son is uninsured also, as was I until two years ago, and even now I don't pay for my insurance all by myself. I have to burden my relatives for assistance.

    We are the working poor; we work hard, and health care is our right and the right of every other American citizen.
    This is the wealthiest and most powerful country on the planet.
    It's pathetic that our citizens don't have what citizens of every other industrialized nation- and even some developing nations- have.
    We pay taxes, we work in the helping professions, we contribute our time to help those around us, we help make this country what it is.
    We deserve to be able to go to the doctor when we're sick.

    Screw your constitution.
    I'm ashamed to belong to a country where nearly 25% of the citizens don't have access to health care.
    This isn't Ethiopia or the Congo. This is the US.
    This reform is a century overdue.
    Once again, Obama is finally making it possible for me to be proud of my country.

    I don't hate the private sector dude. YOu're so ready to give people a label, tell them what they believe in and put them in a little box and tell em who they are.

    Both countries I have lived in, Canada and Britain have Universal Health Care, that aint perfect but it doesnt leave anyone out because they're poor. Britain still has a healthy private health care sector and so do parts of Canada. We have capitalist economies, and in fact Canada's is so resilient due to Government regulation it held up better then almost any other Western Country during the recession.

    It is the Constitution that is the very basis of the foundation of this country. Your problem is you, as well as the rest of your Communist biddies, seem to think that a big centralized government is the end all to society's ills. but it isn't! And this new monstrosity will prove the same old ****!

    If this bill doesn't accomplish anything it still good to see all the "homo-liberal-socialist" hating, FOXNews clones, who just LOVE to get under other people's skin, all pissed off and fuming about it! It does my heart good! See? This bill is ALREADY making me healthier!

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    1. Its not getting shot down in a legal battle. That is fantasy.
    2. Its actually a great boon to the Dems, as the issue is now behind us and they got something done, even with the Repubs throwing everything but the kitchen sink into their path. Its will be substantially out of the news cycle. Attention will now be on the replacement for Justice Stevens.
