Good One !!! I bet Ralph don't know anything about politics, he just voted for him because he thought he was "cool". He will think cool if the Health Care bill passes and he has to wait 6 months on a Drs. appt. I bet he changes his tune real quick, although he wouldn't admit it.

Figure it out. All they are doing is making insurance companies give insurance for pre-existing conditions. YOU pay for the insurance. Now we get to subsidize Nebraska's medicaid. When the smoke clears a lot of people will be crying the blues. If I could afford insurance I would have it. I am on the pay as you go plan. If I cannot pay, I do not go! I do not get assistance of any kind and do not expect it. Never collected welfare and work for anything that I get. No I am not wealthy, nor am I silly enough to believe in the health care fairy. Wake up sheeple, you are about to lay your heads on the chopping blocks. This once faithful democrate has now turned republican. Get out and vote these nuts out of office or suffer from your silly greed for the free ride. Nothing in life is free.

We all get stuck with a bill for this healthcare plan though. If we do not pay for the plan then we get a fine. So either way we are paying for healthcare. Why do people think it is free?

They are looking for the easy way out! They do not realize that the insurance will be higher and if they do not buy it, after the fine comes a jail sentence. Unless it has been changed you can only pay the fine once then you go to jail. Everyone buys into the statement that the USA is the only country without a health care plan. Have you ever wondered about the health care in the countries where children are pictured with swollen tummies and flies blowing about them? Seems to be that we are now starting to see this same picture here. Thank all you liberals for the problem you put into office. Palen definitely did not need to be there either. Perhaps it is time to really go back to our grass roots and clean the political houses completely out! Let common sense be used instead of the purchased title of "College Graduate", that has never really faced life head on. Nothing wrong with a good college degree. But a lifetime of experience is a much better teacher.

He does not want to be our President. He wants the title of world leader. This egotistical desire will bring about our destruction.

You can contact them all you want. They do not want to hear you. If they were listening, our WV Senators and Congressmen would not be voting for this plan. This is not a health care plan it is another way to control the population by making them subservant to the government. The government is suppose to be by the people and for the people. NOT for big business and filling the pockets of uncaring politicians out to make a name and glorify themselves. The government leaders want the men and women of this country to become a group of drones that do not have an original thougt in their head. Rip away the sugar coatings of our democracy and you will find a rotten corpse infested with maggots. The people of this country are letting it die by their idleness and willingness to let the government toss them crumbs. Pretty soon we will be standing in lines with a small bowl and begging "Please sir, just a little bit more."

I have medicare and the govt. cant even get that right. No dental, no vision and sometimes hard to even find a doctor, or should I say a good doctor. What will everyone do if the govt. starts offering health insurance and your employer tells you to get it instead of carrying insurance for you. Do you have dental and vision now? YOU WONT SOON!!! And dont tell me how the govt will fine employers for no insurance. Which is cheaper for them, a $1000 fine or paying $3000 a year for your insurance coverage. Tell congress to give all of us there insurance coverage and then I would say heck yes!!!

I see the gov't shoving this 'healthcare plan'[and I use the term loosely] down our throats - if it's such a wonderful plan, why don't they plan on opting in...? I guess this may be one situation where what's good for the goose ISN'T good for the gander.

Unlike many, I don't get the majority of my information from FOX News and Limbaugh, this gives me the freedom to actually EDUCATE myself on the advantages of health care available to all.
Sadly, most who oppose don't realize they have been taken for a ride by special interest groups, lobbyist, drug companies for decades...and guess what..your 'saviors' the republican parties hands are in the coffer of greed...your health is NOT what is important to those who oppose..your vote in November is.

I'm so tired of the I've got mine screw everyone else crowd. I'll take hope and change any day over obstruction and hate. Doubt if I'll ever vote Republican again.

Me too Julie. I prefer the "I will just sit on my arse and wait for those who work for it and then simply take it from them" crowd. Much better class of "caring" people aren't they?
