    I am supposed to do a 5 page paper on this bill for school. Obama’s speech is great but he seems to do a lot of talking. Where did you get your info from?

    It is a list of well known facts that have been reported publicly in the media and compiled by bluelagoon. Do your own research if you go to public school because you will be attacked both by the school and the students alike with any point of view contrary to President Obama. However, make your own decisions based on your research and express them with respect. You will be tested. Good luck.

    I couldn’t trust this administration to put together a semi-successful yard-sale, much less a bill… I hate to see anyone fail, but they make it hard!

    I don’t know if it is they are lazy or what but they tried to pass this without reading the thing at first and they still have not read it. Obama wants it passed and he has not read it either. I think all of the congress and senate must be brain dead already. The people has came out and said they don’t want this but Obama and the Democrats and Liberals are still beating that same drum trying to force it down out throats. What part of NO do they not understand.

    That isn’t exactly what he said…close though. He said, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money,that will herald the end of the republic.” Why shouldn’t the people want to vote for themselves? Because most of them are fools right…

    Aaaannndd on that Benjamin F. quote, how do you know he actually said that? I just checked the web and it basically said that there’s nothing attributing that quote to him before 1988. Just because I say Thomas Jefferson said, “When in the case of a tyrannical government, the people reserve the right to remove said monarch, tyrant, or ruling parties that be by any and all means necessary,” it doesn’t necessarily mean he said it! C’mon America, stop thinking with your feet and start thinking with your head and heart.

    (CNSNews.com) – According to a poll report released Monday by Rasmussen Reports, the majority of Americans believe that no health care reform would be better than passing H.R. 3200, the current reform bill in the House of Representatives.

    When respondents were asked whether it would be better to pass the current bill working its way through Congress, H.R. 3200, or do nothing at all this year, 54 percent chose nothing at all. Thirty-five percent of respondents supported the bill, and 11 percent said they were still not sure.

    I was in the military for twenty years and looked forward to getting a regular health care plan that covered my family with less out of pocket cost. Now, they want to put me and my family back on the public option because my regular plan will be to expensive for me or my employer to afford.

    I think you meant to say “private option.” There is no public option. Good luck to you.

  • bkrueg 10/15/2009 12:54pm

    The only way Obama can get the un-constitutional HR-3200 past the Supreme Court is to lie to the American people and tell them it is an insurance or health care reform bill while telling the Supreme Court it is a new tax for an American benefit. After all, that is what FDR had to do with the Social Security (SS) bill and look how well that is working. OBAMA LIES, this is a new tax on the American People with no accounting just like Social Security. Any one see a LOCK BOX? The money will go into the general fund and then to the Pork Barrel Projects just as the bankrupt SS. IT IS A POWER GRAB.

    I haven’t seen a Lock Box since they voted for GWB in 2000. I haven’t seen as many Pork Barrel Projects this year as I’ve been used to seeing either.

    For all the people talking about expense, how much did the War in Iraq cost us during Bush’s administration? Pretty sure it was over $2 trillion. How was that money spent? Killing people. How will this money be spent? Saving people’s lives.

    For all the people talking about wait times… Um, here’s a novel idea. Let’s HIRE MORE DOCTORS. Maybe we could BUILD MORE HOSPITALS while we’re at it. Hey, there we go, we solved two problems at once, health care AND unemployment!

    For all the people saying they’ll be forced to buy the public option… You’re stupid. It’s called a public “option” for a reason… IT’S OPTIONAL. I’m glad nobody in the United States knows what the word “option” means. Imagine what would happen if people actually knew how to THINK. My God, then we’d have communist, atheist liberals running all over the place! (This is sarcasm by the way.)

    And for all the people saying your insurance premiums are going to go up, that’s a scare tactic being used by the health insurance companies. The truth is, they just want to make more money, and if Congress tries to regulate them or, God forbid, let anti-trust legislation actually APPLY to them, they’re going to jack their rates up as high as they can just to get their revenge. But competition in the form of a public option would prevent that, so you don’t have to worry.

    And for all the people worrying about bureaucrats getting between you and your healthcare… YOU HAVE THAT NOW. IT’S CALLED THE HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES. THEIR ONLY GOAL IS TO MAKE MONEY. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR LIFE AT ALL. THEY HAVE ENTIRE DEPARTMENTS DEDICATED TO DENYING PEOPLE’S CLAIMS, JUST SO THEY CAN MAKE THEIR PROFITS BIGGER. I apologize for using caps lock, but it seems that most people on the internet can’t read something unless it’s in all caps. :)

    Try 815 billion, and that is including the war in Afghanistan, but don’t worry about it our president doesn’t even know that.

    “None of these clauses—or any others found in the Constitution—gives Congress the power to create a government healthcare system.”

    welfare n. 1. health, happiness, or prosperity; well-being. But also—

    Section 8 – Powers of Congress

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

    (This one gives Congress the right to regulate commerce among the several states. Commerce like private insurance, etc., which can and should be regulated. Also, there are such things as government corporations- ever hear of the USPS? Another way to “regulate commerce” by making sure everyone gets their mail without having to rely on private businesses if they don’t want to.)

  • ecce_ego 10/16/2009 12:47am

    Section 8- Powers of Congress

    To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

    (A catchall thrown in by the founders, who were very intelligent and wise men, and as such knew that a short document like the constitution was merely a general guide and that our duly represented officials could be trusted to interpret it properly depending on circumstances. I honestly get the feeling that those who are always crying about the constitution whenever our elected officials do anything are also extremist Christians. The constitution is not the Bible. It’s not the word of God, it’s a document that was deliberately made to be vague on certain areas to allow for a government that was flexible enough to serve the people in every circumstance. Stop hating America and start supporting that government, why don’t you?

    I find your statement interesting considering those who founded our country were considered the liberals and free thinkers of the times. Lets try not to spin right or left, but convey truth and understanding instead of hate and discontent. Pull in you loud voice of us against them and listen to what people are concerned about. America’s health care system is not the best it can be and if those in government can improve it then I applaud their effort. Good or bad at least they are trying. Of course the statement “NO FRICKING WAY” does not contribute to a solution.

  • xerqu 10/16/2009 7:04am

    Here’s something I’m wondering about: without a public option this bill basically just changes the laws regarding health care. Why does that cost 800 billion dollars?

    I’m assuming that I’m missing something here. What is it?

  • Comm_reply
    LucasFoxx 10/16/2009 6:17pm

    Good question. For one thing, reform will require insurance providers, including Medicare to pay upfront for proceedure that they are currently allowed to deny. The long term savings are not really figured into the equation, as far as I can see. But there are also services and modernization of Medicare, cost sharing credits, and the like. And there is also the creation of the Health Care Administrator to monitor Insurance companies to set standards and monitor what they call Qualified Health Benefit Providers.

    xerqu 10/21/2009 6:12am

    So the cost of reform is, in a large part, the cost of addition Medicare coverage? Yet people are up in arms that it will hurt Medicare/kill old people?

    Do I just not understand the American people?

    I do not understand them either. If one was to look at health care in other developed countries compared to America one would truly be humiliated by our system. We put a price on human life in the end. Overall people in other developed nations are happier and live longer than here in the United States. Think about how much weight off of your shoulders that would be if you did not have to worry about how much it is going to cost you as you are having a massive heart attack. It seems ridiculous that these arguments seriously occur in America, putting a price on human life. My best advice: watch SICKO. If you still do not believe, then get on facebook, find a random person from Canada, England, Holland, or France, and ask them about their systems and their satisfaction with their health care.

    nextgeneration – I have sat across the table from a Canadian family and was told they would have to wait for months for treatment and they chose to come to America to have medical treatment. During our conversation a couple from England stated that Americans are crazy to change there system because Americans have the best system in the world.
