I have no insurance. But don't take away other peoples insurance for me. Help me afford my insurance, and write the laws to stop pre-existing conditions and dropping people when they get sick. You don't need to change the whole system just to help us.

I can't afford to look at this from any perspective than personal. My employer has already expressed his desire to throw his employees to the wolves, and opt out of private health care. He's foaming at the bit to put us all on Obama Care. The government doesn't do ANYTHING right. It's even forgot how to win a war.
Obama, and his cronnies, have almost destroyed America in less than a year! And, we were told to fear the Russians...

And, you lecture while alowing MoveOn.org speak for you? Your premise that two "wrongs" somehow makes a "right," is simply butt-stupid!
Obama gets no pass because Bush was a failure.
Put your Pelosi Weekly down, get away from the kool-aid, open BOTH eyes, and take a honest look at reality. You'll be surprised at what you see!

Don't know what moveon.org is or the Pelosi weekly, I actually do have my own eyes and my own ears open, for you to say he has nearly destroyed out country in one year in a typical cronnie comment, sounds like the exact words out of Rush's mouth and Beck (who I used to like, still do a little). It is typical polotics, when the right was in office the dems smeared bush and and government every chance they had, I thought it was horrible, now I see the right doing the same thing, smearing the dems every chance they get, and it to I find horrible.

This thing the right wing is doing by saying crap like Oboma has destroyed our country, or is secretley planning to is absurd, I say again, learn to think for your self people.

No need to "smear the dems."
They are doing it to themselves!
Obama's approval ratings are in a "death spiral," just like the US dollar. These are facts, not the opinions of Beck or Rush.
You are obviously the product of a failed educational system, unable to analyze reality.

Obama's ratings and the Dollar are taking a death spiral, hmmmmm, kind of reminds me of the former Pres Bush, Rush and Beck both are saying the same things, you can listen to any of there fans and they all sound and say the same things. Its almost like a bunch of robots.

Where were you when Bush and the last office were pulling all their crap, Rush, Beck and followers did not have a thing to say, now all of a sudden OMG the country's falling apart LOL what a joke!

Congrats to the "Researcher" for finding the Kool Aid, all on his own!
Where was I?
Prior to Obama, I was criticizing Bush!
If you can analyze a chart, take a look at the USD Index, then begin, "how to think for (yourself)." Ask youself what the chart shows pre-Obama, vs current, and what will be the result if the trend continues?
Now, you're on your way to ECON 101...

So now you can see into the future using a magic chart, LOL.

How many of your fellow Oboma hater's were criticizing Bush? not many, if any,except you.

Be honest, look at your friends, family, co-workers, what ever,( the ones who feel the way you do)and say to yourself, what were these peoples views during the Bush time, well probly the same as Rush, but that's just a wild guess. The bandwagon is rolling!

All i have to say Clinton started turning our economy around soon as bush enters it falls to crap, Obama is stuck with a huge mess on his hands its hard to turn the nations economy around just like that, it wont change in his term or mabey even the next, but i put the blame on money hungary millionairs, who were greedy as hell, The rich get richer and the poor get well even more poor, so u can hate obama but he has a huge mess to fix, and heathcare is one of those steps i suppose, u look at how much doctors get paid, and 98% the time the dont even diagnose the right sickness, my grandma had a brain tumor and passed from it because doctors, just guessed and said she was having migrains, they dont really care about checking, so she suffered for 6 months from a lemon sized tumor pushing against her brain, just because they wouldnt test for it, so really i think the whole system is mucked up

A-typical Obamabot rants.
In two years, we'll still be in a recession, the Dems will be frothing about "saving 100 million jobs," and you'll still be blaming Bush!
LMAO

The govt is not supposed to be running our lives! It isn't right to force people to pay for others' health care.

Something has to change the current course of health care/insurance in this country. If we don't get our arms around this now, our economy will only get worse. I have read large parts of this bill - it isn't everything we need but it's a damn site better than what we have now.

As long as Pelosi and Reid are involved, Obama will be dragged down with the "old school" type politicians he promised to get away from and offer us CHANGE!

This is not a healthcare reform bill for the poor who qualify & receive tax paid medical ins.(yes, even emergency room visits are covered!) This is a bill for those who WILL be poor and MORE people taking out of our system(med, food stamps, energy asst, college grants, etc, etc, etc) instead up putting IN if it wasn't for this Healthcare Reform bill! The BEST overall move for our country yet!
