This bill is one of the worst things that can happen to this country. It should be thrown out and completely redone with more input from medical professionals and what the majority of the citizens really want. Why isn’t the elected congress and senate officials listening to the public that don’t want this bill to pass. Why is our government forcing something that the majority don’t want. To all you Congressmen and Senators, remember you are suppose to work for us. We hired you to represent us, not dictate to us. I hope in the election this fall the vast majority of you are “FIRED” and are replaced by elected officials that abide by our Constitution and will listen to the citizens of this nation and our wishes. We are not Socialists and will be a free Republic again. Don’t pass this bill……

Thats called slavery Jerod. Example of fairness.

Jon has 2 cars, 1 for him and 1 for his wife, Julie. Julie only works part time so she can stay home with their 3 year old Bobby. Jon’s neighbor Stuart has 1 car since he lives alone. Stuart’s neighbor Greg 3 doors down has no car and takes the bus to work. He want’s a car and is saving up for one.

One day Stuart takes Jon’s wife’s car and gives it to Greg and says look how much I’ve helped you. Later Jon has Stuart Arrested and reclaims his car from a upset Greg who had no idea it was Jon’s car.

Here is the difference when Government does it:

The police knock on Jon’s door one day and say “Greg doesn’t have a car so to be fair we are taking the one you don’t really need.” Jon gets mad and says no. The Policeman Cuffs him and tosses him into jail. Your argument is a excuse to plunder.

If insurance companies are making “too” much money, if banks are making “too” much money, if the oil companies are making “too” much money, …go to your broker and get rich
!!! This is nothing but big government takeover and control that our “constitution” was supposed to protect us from! Next election I will work for a canidate that can read the Constitution and has guts enough to stand up for it!

If Obama had his way, there would be one massive bill titled “Comprehensive, Systematic Takeover of Everything I Think I Can Run Better than You Act.”

The text of the bill would read like so:

Sec 1000. Definitions

a) Entity – Any corporation, business, organization, group, individual, or practice which is determined by the President to not be running exactly the way the President thinks is best.

Sec 1001. Extension of Presidential Powers

a) At the President’s request, a committee shall be formed to investigate the status, actions, structure, and any other qualities of any Entity. This committee will deliberate with the President to determine what corrective actions are necessary. Corrections shall be applied immediately upon the request of the President.

“Social programs like this do nothing but good over time.”

…which is clearly why Massachusetts, upon implementing a similar system to the one Obama is proposing in 2006, saw skyrocketing health costs.

We wouldn’t even have a health care crisis if not for Medicare, Medicaid, and government regulation. The government requires employers in many states to provide “health benefits” to their employees, and this is a huge part of what has caused consumers to have no choice in their health insurance coverage.

Government needs to butt out of our lives. One question I always ask: Is this giving me more liberty and freedom or is it taking away liberty and freedom?

I just read that Obama is planning on putting Student Loan overhaul into the Health Care Bill?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

What does one have to do with the other and when you vote Yes on the Health Care Bill does that mean that you’re voting Yes to the Student Loan provisions at the same time?

What does this man not understand about transparency?

Which is unconstitutional.
The gov stepping in is exactly what they’re not supposed to do.

Those things are not mandated unless you choose to use them. I know plenty of people who don’t own a vehicle and therefore don’t need any of the items that you mentioned.

It’s not the gov’s role to tell us what we can do and what we can’t do. It’s their role to ensure that our rights are not taken from us. Instead, the gov is systematically editing our rights out of the constitution.

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?

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.

And I suppose “The Patriot Act” is constitutional? Why weren’t you screaming when that was passed? (By a republican president/congress, I might add)

Most of what the Republican party’s original ideology has been warped, and tainted by greed. Especially the part regarding ending slavery, which in some sense isn’t true, yes people get paid for working, but how much, in all reality we should be receiving a minimum wage of 13.78 per hr (based on rate of inflation and consumer price index calculator), but we still don’t even see the $10 per hr. minimum wage yet. When “Big Businesses” close up shop in the US and put millions out of work, how in the world do you expect them to afford any health care costs? You try to live on a fixed income like they have for just one month, I dare you, and see how you fare. Walk a mile in the other’s shoes.

The GOP has forgotten their history altogether, and I quote: "Early Republican ideology was reflected in the 1856 slogan free labor, free land, free men. “Free labor” referred to the Republican belief in a mobile middle class that left the workforce and set up small businesses. “Free land” referred to Republican efforts to facilitate this spirit of entrepreneurship by giving away government owned land. The Party hoped that this rapid growth would help check, and eventually end slavery"

Has anyone noticed if you try to rate in the (-)negative on GOP type comments that they either a: don’t change or b: go up? And the reverse is true of non-GOP type comments?

Fortunately, none of the voting on this site reflects the electorate; it does, however, match the rhetoric here.

This bill is supposed to help 31 million uninsured become 24 to 25 million uninsured. Then what? Will someone please tell me how the government is supposed to be able to run this hulk of a monster when they’ve failed at everything they’ve managed thus far. This bill needs to be scrapped. The industries need to be fixed…Insurance, Drugs/Pharms, Medical. Or maybe first, fix Congress. Do away with the crap added to this bill, add a 28th ammendment to the Constitution to do away with private insurance and retirement for Congress, make the government accountable for our tax dollars. We need to make sure that government is run like a business and if they fail, then and only then will we be on the hook for trillions in mis-spent funds!!!

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.

Have any of you noticed how top-rated comments and higher ratings tend to lean more towards the tea party – also spelled with lowercase to emphasize a point-they might represent a lower percentage driskells, but they thrive in numbers here, just look at the top-rated comments over on the right.

A Bill of Attainder is a legislative act that punishes a specific individual or group without a trial or judicial hearing. The United States Constitution (Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3) expressly forbids Bills of Attainder, whether at the federal or state level because the framers wanted to make that everyone received due process; that there be a separation of powers; and that no individual or group be singled out for punishment without benefit of trial or hearing. This provision was included in the Constitution because the framers had witnessed how the British monarchy and parliament had used Bills of Attainder to punish dissidents, political rivals and popular movements.

The indoor tanning industry was “…singled out for punishment without benefit of trial or hearing” when the 10% Tan Tax (in H.R. 3590) was passed by the Senate. This provision is a Bill of Attainder violation that deprives the indoor tanning industry of their Constitutional rights.

The intent of this bill sounds good and all, however it is socially flawed. It is essentially taxing the majority to support a minority. Also, can anyone point out if it says whether you can opt-out individually
