It’s obvious you’ve done nothing to educate yourself with the issues, so your statement only shows your lack of knowledge and more concerning, your inability to comprehend it and provide meaningful input to the dialogue. There are major issues around healthcare which need to be addressed; for those with the intelligence and fortitude to actually make the effort to address them, I am there to support you. Start with the facts, and the issues, and let’s make something happen – pushing it to the future is for the weak of heart.

i think he went from the top down when he should have went from the bottom up. instead of bailing out the mortgage lenders he should have helped the HOMEOWNERS pay their mortgages then the lenders would have their money AND people would have their houses too.the way he did it people will still lose their homes but the TAXPAYERS AND THE BORROWER pay for the home and get nothing.he could have done it so all 3 partys(taxpayers,homeowners,lenders) won but he did not.if he can give the lenders 800 billion and spend all the billions he does on foriegn matters then why couldn’t he start a temporary “walfare like” program to save american homeowners? the homeowners would get the money to save their houses,the banks would get their payments and he could add the “loaned walfare” house payment money on to their property in the form of a lien so the taxpayer loses nothing. the people keep their house ,the banks get their money AND since the homeowner eventually pays the money back the taxpayers are not out 800 billion. NO ONE LOSSES.the way he is doing it ALL the taxpayers (including the former homeowner) are paying for the house through his 800 billion payment but no one gets the house,(unless you count the slick dude who bought the $150.000 house for $10.000 at the sheriffs auction).either way it’s costing taxpayers AND homeowners when it doesn’t have to cost ANYBODY.say your mortgage was $1000 a month,you need help for a year thats $12000 .now instead of upping your payment(which i hear is why a lot of people are folding,ARM’S)or helping the bank make more interest off your existing loan you just lien the property.if you did it by adding it through your existing mortgage of 15 years your payment and interest would probably be substantial, at least your payment would rise and thats what you would want to avoid .so i think it should have been a “HOMEOWNERS BAILOUT” not a “LENDERS BAILOUT”.plus with their homes safe they could quit worring about the mortgage and pay other bills and buy things thus stimulating the economy .thats $12,000 thats put back into the economy that didn’t cost taxpayers ANYTHING,far better then the $300 “tax rebate” that cost the goverment money and did not stimulate anything. if you were lucky it helped you catch up on your $500 a month winter heating bill from last year.plus the home owner still has to pay back the money even though he lost his house!! i wonder what the motgage company will do with that money. remember, if i owe $100,000 on my mortgage and they sell my house for $10,000 i still have to pay back the bank the $90,000 difference.WTF? so once again the average working man gets shafted but big business does not.while i do not mean it badly (we are capitalist’s)the only one thats making out is the guy who bought your house for $10,000 while you have to pay the whole $100,000.almost sounds like alimoney, you have to pay for the horse someone else gets to ride.so since its taxpayer money why are they not bailing out the taxpayer instead of the lenders?$12,000 average per homeowner is not a lot when you consider 1)the owner does not lose the house.2)the bank gets their payment and does not go under.(also giving them more to loan stimulateing the economy even further)3)the loan is secured through property.4)the economy gets stimulated big time by the extra consumer money.5)taxpayers lose nothing.every bodys happy all the way around

I live in dread fear of the Federal government controlling 16% of the US GNP. We have the world’s best health care system and the government will surely screw it up.

I understand that Ryan’s bill is coming to a vote, I hope you are aware that Ryan was a known drug abuser. How could congress put his name on a bill? Please check his web page… it is a known fact…This must be a sad day for all America that’s like putting Colombia’s drug leader on a bill. Shame on congress, as a pain patient this is not right….I’m sad that you would help pass this bill. This is why we are in a financial crisis now, NO cares to do any research
