    • On January 08, 2011, by suzieqs - Well, this does not include REAL reform whatsoever in it, it is a 1-1/2 page piece of nothing that just calls to repeal the original in it's entirety, so if this does pass, which I truly doubt, the pre-existing clause will be repealed, the ability to insure your children until age 25 will be repealed, the lifetime cap will be re-instated, and you know the GOP will not do one single solitary thing in regards to reforming health care they had 4 years during Clinton admin, and 6 years during Bush and didn't do anything then, so what makes you think they'll do anything now? So go ahead and continue to believe that the GOP is for everyone, they aren't and never have been, they are only for those who can line their pockets the best.

    • On January 18, 2011, by Sxeptomaniac - Please. Republicans attack people all the time. Personal bias tends to lead people to believe their side is the "good" one, therefore ignoring poor behavior. Geez... it wasn't that long ago we had a rabid Glenn Beck fan get into a shootout with the police on his way to try and gun down as many people as he could at the Tides Foundation. This is not a defense of Democrats, or even an attack on Republicans. The point is, if you're going to make an argument, don't make a clearly false one.
