Actually, IF the insurance reform bill did make health insurance more affordable, it would be because of the leeching.

3.) Sec 4 states something I’m WILDLY excited about: It only allowed the government to build hospitals “…if any surplus shall remain…”, and then only “…after defraying the expense of such temporary relief and support…”, AND THEN ONLY “…when, in [the President’s] opinion, a suficient fund shall be accumulated, [the President] is hereby authorized to purchase or receive cessions or donations of ground or buildings, in the name of the United States, and to cause buildings, when necessary, to be erected as hospitals for the accommodation of sick and disabled seamen.”

How is that a personal attack? Was someone’s name mentioned in that post? The poster was saying that Republican policies are greed for some and poverty for the majority.

4.) Sec 5 allows the President to “…nominate and appoint, in such ports of the United States, as he may think proper, one or more persons, to be called directors of the marine hospital of the United States…” with the stipulation that “…no other allowance or compensation shall be made to the said directors, except the payment of such expenses as they may incur in the actual discharge of the duties required by this act…” except to “…direct the expenditure of the fund assigned for their respective ports, according to the third section of this act; to provide for the accommodation of sick and disabled seamen…”

5.) But I think the thing that I like most is that the people impacted WEREN’T REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ANYTHING. They weren’t required to buy a good or service. It gave them freedom of choice. If they didn’t like it, they could always stop being seamen. They could get away from it, and if they did, they wouldn’t receive the benefits of the act.

Right on the money! If a lib opens his/her mouth, you’re about guaranteed a logical fallacy of some sort is forthcoming. Keep the debate alive, because in the end, the truth will out.

It just shows how real antagonistic the Republicans are. Eric Cantor doesn’t have a job to serve the American People, his job is to be a Thorn on Obama’s Administration. That’s the one, true, absolute purpose in his life. In fact, if Obama finally suffers, I bet he can die a happy man.

Poverty = Slovenly behavior and then feeling entitled to others resources to help you out of your current problems and then into your next set of problems.

I beg to differ, Sxeptomaniac. This is a very important bill for a number of reasons. Consider this: Republicans vowed during the campaign period to repeal heathcare. How would it look if they then took office and said “Well, you know, we can’t really do it anyway, so why try?” The reason that they went ahead with this bill was that it showed the people who voted for them that they are SERIOUS about repealing Obamacare. Do you realize, Sxeptomaniac, that it would only take FOUR Democratic Senators to unite with the Republicans in the Senate to pass it there as well? “Well, what good is that?” you ask “President Obama would still have to sign it”. You are correct, but by sending this bill to the President’s desk, Congress would force him to use his signature to deny the American people legislation that they clearly WANT. You incidentally have already been proven wrong about the bill never leaving committee or the House.

You mean kind of like the logic that leads Republicans to claim “less government” but really just want to control aspects of our lives?

Drug laws
anti-abortion laws
anti-sodomy laws
anti-gay marriage laws

Sounds like a lot of government intervention to me.

The problem with socialism is sooner or later you run out of other peoples’ money. – may not be exact, but thought is from Margaret Thacher
