    You know, this comment again shows, the un-informed, ill-informed, tea party that is screaming about how bad this president/congress is doing, every part of the legislative process can not be televised, nor posted on the internet, but most is, which hasn’t been done before, or if it was wasn’t easily locatable, now, the bills before they are sent to the floor of the house or senate are published on the internet, you can either find them here or in the Thomas database, through the US Library Online (I think that’s right, correct me if I’m wrong). If you don’t go online and either a: read them in your browser, or b: print them out, that’s your fault not Obama’s. Plus, most of the committee hearings regarding health care reform were available on C-Span, C-Span2 or C-Span3, and still are if you want to find them. So make sure you’ve got your facts straight.

    It’s also written in such a cryptic legalese that it’s impossible to understand exactly what to expect from this bill. No wonder everyone is confused. Why do we elect lawyers into office?

    Who pays – The common worker.
    1. You can claim the rich, the corporations, whatever, the fact is Companies “do not pay taxes” no matter what you think, wish or have been told these companies are only middlemen who relay all cost to the product they sell and we the people pay the taxes. Large Corporations are actually good and provide us jobs, investment opportunities and a place to hangout to make new friends.
    2. Rich people – Why? One might sit back and wish they had that kind of money lying around but there is no reason to hate them for they do pay far more taxes then you & me and use the resources about the same as us. Reminder, these people are rich for a reason, they know ways and have the time to make money and common workers don’t in the end they will keep their money and the common worker will pay “all” of the bills.

    I can’t believe this GARBAGE legislation is making its way through congress when so many Americans are against it? Who are these senator’s, who are supposed to be representing American interest, listening to if not us? These kinds of politics make me SICK!! Our politicians have been bought off, obviously!!… but I suppose that’s old news. When will America be America again?

    Furthermore, it disgusts me how they disguise these garbage bills with fancy titles and abstracts that SOUND good, but are filled with poison. Of course another strategy of theirs is loading these bills with thousands of pages of garbage so nobody will ever read it, even if they had the time to. Finally, they push them through, making the bills impossible to come under scrutiny. What the crap is WRONG with this country and its politics!?! This is INSANITY people!!

    RESTORE THE REPUBLIC!!

    Today and over a hundred years ago bribery was known and still is known as the same thing. The basic meaning of bribery can be described as a way to get someone to do something, for something in exchange.

    People in power try to bribe other people in power for even greater power or things of greater monetary value. Of course the authors of the Constitution knew bribes were tempting and made a law that prevented any government official from accepting a bribe, especially from a foreign nation, without being kicked out of office.
    Votes were bought, like I will see to it that your State gets 300 Hundred Million Dollars.

    Slugger, you hit the nail on the head. That is the major problem with our American process. The discusting part is that it is legalized bribery.

    This is the change that we were all hoping for – stopping such criminal activity.
    We’ve got to remind these people that OUR VOTES are what they listen to.
    Not Lobbyists, Not Special Interests, Not Campaign Donations, Not Unions, Not Corporations.
    The law that was passed declaring that corporations deserve the freedom of speech and could donate to political campaigns without any tracking is the most recent step to destroying America. Currently, we’re able to track what donations have been made and what politicians have been bought. Soon, we won’t be able to monitor this illegal activity and it will only get worse.
    The biggest fears are that this will extend outside our nation’s borders and will allow foreign entities to donate unchecked. The Supreme Court has just sold America to the highest bidder and removed the vocal chords of the American Voter.

    Mr.saknama, the law struck down by the Supreme court does not infringe on liberties…Explain to me how Obama was able to raise more than 780 million dollars for his campaign, and the writer of the bill John McCain raised more than 350 million dollars for his campaign,with the bill in place for about 6 years…..That totals a whopping 1 billion dollars for a job that pays around 500,000 a year…The billion dollar president…The law did not stop them from making money….

    Lets not forget the worst part of this deal – its not just that taxpayers will foot the bill for non taxpayers so they can have ‘free’ care … the worst part is that buying insurance will be mandatory and will be a part of your IRS tax return – show proof of coverage or be fined. Sorry folks but that is extortion!! There are always better ways to do things but the govt wants to control and make deals.

    Cap lawsuits, make ins companies portable (increases competition) pay doctors what they are worth – leave medicare for the seniors – stop the handouts – teach people how to live healthier – add to those being able to get our meds from outside the US – the FDA is just another control.

    People get so uppity about their right to health care – what about my right to not have to pay for your ‘free’ care??

    The govt is funded by tax dollars – so every time you get something from them – you are really getting it from those who pay taxes. will you pay my fine please??

    I only agree with some of your comment. First, you have mis-spoken referencing paying for people whom don’t pay taxes. Many of the people that pay taxes don’t have healthcare. In fact, there are many middle class people that do not have any health coverage. The lower class people that pay taxes pay for your roads and parks without any of the taxes paying for their roads and parks in their communities. I only ask for the facts.

    I’m sorry but even the working poor pay taxes, they pay Social Security and Medicare tax for their entire earnings, stop calling them non-taxpayers! They may not pay as much in Income tax as most, but some do (they don’t qualify for deductions).

    I agree with you that capping lawsuits would help, making insurance portable, (we wouldn’t need insurance if our doctors, charged less for their services though).

    Stop the handouts to whom? The working poor to the very rich? Do you want to stop Domestic Welfare or Corporate Welfare or both?

    I remember it cost 12.00 to see a doctor in the 70’s, now you’re lucky if you can get out of his office for less than 60.00. There are fewer and fewer General Practioners, and more specialists than ever. Want health care reform be a part of the solution not a part of the problem.

    The “working poor” (with kids) get back far more than they paid in federal tax. Add to that all the other assistance they (reduced or free childcare, WIC, food stamps, the list goes on and on). This may not represent 100% of the “working poor”, as you call them but it does represent a large portion.

    I have many friends that are “working poor” and I love tax time when they complain to me about how little they got back. Then I usually ask ‘how much did you pay?’. The answer usually comes out around 1/3 or less than they received back. I have no problem if they get back 100% of their federal income tax, but to give back more than they paid is a hand out. Social Security is not refundable, so that tax shouldn’t enter the argument.

    Let’s for a moment forget about the taxpayer, one of which I am. Don’t you realize that this bill, along with H.R 756, protects YOU, IF YOU DO BECOME ILL. I was a 6 figure employee when I became ill with a vast array of diseases,including, Lyme, Cancer, Fibromyalga, spinal steosis and degenerative disc disease. I had to retire and give up my 6 figure job. I am now handicapped. This bill and others pay for research and development, along with paying for extended education of the medical community, medicare and third party payers, and believe me, THEY NEED TO BE EDUCATED! Most of the doctors I have met do not know how to treat the sick. I am now handicapped and my surgeon was paid more than he was worth. Thank goodness for medicare.

  • LucasFoxx 12/21/2009 12:49pm

    So far, I’m enjoying the “screwing” I’m getting from this administration. It’s reassuring to know the Presidency is in competent hands again.

    There have been many Tea Party movements in the past. This one seems to be an artificial movement spin-off of the Ron Paul movement; spun off, funded, and promoted by well known GOP assets: Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Works, and Fox News. I don’t remember them supporting any of the congressional victors in the 2006 change of leadership nor Obama’s election.

    “Hate-mongering and smearing all over the TV shows” are words that come to mind when shown “Muslim President” and “Death Panel” signs and correlations between Health Care Reform and the Holocaust. If they are really serious about “REAL change”, they should be less extreme and more responsible in their rationale and rhetoric. Rants of ObamaCare, Communism and Socialism deafen ears; much like the boy who cried wolf.

    The proper role of government is to protect the innocent from tyranny. The proper role of national government is limited and clearly defined in our Constitution, and this bill clearly falls outside the proper role of our national government.

    Should everyone have access to health care? Yes, definitely. Should anyone be forced to provide that health care? Absolutely not. When any person is forced to provide health care, government is not only over-stepping its authority, it is practicing tyranny. Governmental force is supposed to protect individuals from tyranny, not practice it. This bill is criminal – and those who vote for it are committing crimes against freedom. The Declaration of Independence outlines the proper way to respond to tyrants.

    You would want to take away Veteran Care?! Care for the very people who keep your right to speak against them in such a manner?! You are the type of person that causes the problems in this country. You only see things in ’D’s and ’R’s. Just because you say you’re an independent and that you voted for Bush (obviously a lie) you tout the far left ideology at every corner.

    I don’t want to do away with Veteran Care, but I have a moral disagreement with forcing anyone to provide Veteran Care. Veteran Care should be the best care available, but it should be provided voluntarily, and the funds for it should be provided voluntarily. Every time governmental force is used to gather funds, freedom goes out the window.

    Social Security and Medicare would be OK, if they received their funds from completely voluntary contributions. Therefore, yes – Social Security, Medicare, and most national agencies, departments, and bureaucracies should be dissolved. The exceptions are those that provide for the national defense. Veteran Care should also be funded on a voluntary basis.

    However, none of these governmental encroachments will be dissolved until the large majority of individual citizens demand of their representatives that they be dissolved. The only way that will happen is if the large majority of individual citizens also assume personal responsibility, and refrain from using governmental force to escape accountability. The only way that will happen is on an individual level – each individual must understand that freedom and prosperity are directly associated with responsibility, accountability, knowledge, and morality.
