    If you were President, would you have signed or vetoed the new health care bill?

    I would have vetoed. The reason is the student loan rider that was included, and special deals to certain States.

    I would have vetoed it and then walked around bitch slapping every single person who voted for it.

    Here I agree.
    It is wrong to add any section or amendment to any bill which is unrelated.
    I'd love to see this practice banned.
    But I do favor the student loan bill....and this should have been fixed long ago...but with the party of no around....

    I would have vetoed it. They went about trying to reform access to healthcare in all the wrong ways.

    Re: Would you have signed or vetoed the health care bill?

    I would have vetoed it. It wasn't made according to what the nation wants an what the nation needs, there are tons of special deals and secret legislation snuck in there. Plus I think it's too long, it should be passed in increments to where there can be proper debate and short enough where each congressman/senator can read the whole thing. If anything I would have added that we should pass a law that forces all congressman/senators to read the entire bill before the actual vote, maybe then they won't write massive bills filled with secret crap.

    Re: Would you have signed or vetoed the health care bill?

    I would have vetoed it. Sure, we probably need health care reform, but Obama and the Democrats refused to actually address the real problems with health care, they wanted to slap an absurdly expensive bandage on the problem, just like they did for the financial crisis, without even talking about the underlying causes.

    That's where liberalism always fails.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What are the underlying causes that they didn't address?

    Looking at the position of President Obama, you couldn't expect him to do anything but sign it. If I was in his position, after using so much of my time to get the bill passed, I would practically have to sign it, regardless of what it had.

    If I hadn't spent so much time supporting it, I would probably veto it, and demand Congress pass a bill without so much crap, and so many special deals for votes.
