Well for one thing it isn't going to be government healthcare at all. YOU will buy your own insurance from a FOR PROFIT provider or be fined for not doing so. The europeans and candians still think our "improved" healthcare will still be totally retarded sorry, "mentally challenged". It's universal coverage, or else. I want a european style healthcare system i.e. medicare buy in rate for everyone but not the way they've planned this, thanks in large part to that insurance money fattened guy from Montana who came up with the idea you HAVE to have coverage or you get fined. I still believe you'll go to jail for not paying the $1000 fine even though they say you won't, we'll just see...
Leave it to American politicians (from both sides) to screw up a good idea.
As far as the republicans being desperate they're always acting desperate, it's easy to be a fear monger and get people all riled up. Especially on Fox's "fair and balanced" conspiracy news channel. All these liberty infringements they are suddenly so worried about came about on Little George's watch fully out in the open announced on TV. Announced on their own channel and at the time they trumpeted them as being "necessary for protecting us", calling people like me who were against the Patriot Act at the time "commies" or whatever the fashionable name is now. Obama's too big of a sissy to rescind any of it, so now Fox turns the tables and say "see he's infringing on you" even though it's been going on for 8 years now. Where were all their complaints of infringement for all those years? Why is it all of a sudden a chinese firedrill now that there's a democrat in office when the system hasn't changed by any measurable amount since Bush's people set it all up while Fox News (and the dems) went right along with it.
Rush Limbaugh said he would be moving if they pass this (useless) healthcare reform. The only place outside America without evil "socialized medicine" would be Hati or somewhere else in the 3rd world and we all know how he likes "those" people... LOL
And to leave on a happy note Thursday's The Daily Show was the best in many years. If you get a kick out of watching Glenn Beck and his "the sky falling" show on fox you will giggle yourself silly with this:
