It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
"Wealth of Nations," Book V, Chapter II, Part II, Article I, pg.911
It should never have passed.
There was bipartisanship.....against it. If it was such a good thing for the country, why all the arm twisting, bribes and backroom deals to pass the monstrosity? Why did 34 Dems vote against it?
Oh well, as Nancy Pelosi said "We have to pass it so we can find out what's in it".
I guess we'll be finding out all the dirty little details now. Unfortunately what is not in it, is tort reform and the ability to buy across state lines. Two Rep. ideas that would have brought down costs.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
Signed. Republicans had 12 years to run some kind of health care reform and did nothing. Something needed to be done. I'm glad Obama did it instead of waiting around for Republicans to decide whether or not they want some magical invisible hand to do it for them while the health industry keeps screwing people over.

Both sides are only interested in staying in power, neither are interested in actually solving problems.
