Alpha13 saidGreat, so now we have a government program forcing us to buy an expensive insurance health care policy. What if you are out of work? Do you get fined? LOL Why didn't the Republicans think of this a long time ago to subsidize the insurance companies?
Bail out wall street fat cats and retarded car companies, escalate war and a now free ride for Insurance companies
This is worse than any Republican presidency.
Big Pharm, and Big Insurance, appears to be getting everything, and more, that they paid for in The Senate.
It makes me sick that it's all so corrupt. It's beyond sickening that so much influence was bought.
Now, they are going to FORCE folks (by law) to buy insurance they already could not afford, or face stiff penalties.
We'll continue to line the pockets of the insurance companies by handing them 30%, needlessly, to act as a middle man, and to obstruct health care. In the end, and this is why nearly all other countries have had universal health care since the end of World War II, government is best suited to manage things that everyone needs.
Sick and injured should NOT be the major profit center they are for Corporate America. Regular countries don't allow it and we shouldn't here, either.
At some point, we have to say, enough of greed. How about doing the right thing for a change? Do we have socialized police, fire, roads, schools, libraries? Of course we do. It speaks more than a little bit poorly of us that we think more of property than of our citizens. We like to think we're better, but, a quick look abroad shows WE ARE NOT. We are a hateful, spiteful, vindictive, country in our health care system and in our criminal justice systems. They're two systems that clearly DO NOT WORK.
With regard to debt, and war, one only need to look at history to see the budget surplus was during the times Democrats were in control. One only has to review that same history to see who always gets us in a war. The facts speak for themselves.
The one thing that Republicans / Religious Right / big money do is that they make up stuff, and / or distort facts before a very gullible public. It's their primary method of motivation. FEAR is their primary marketing tool.
