I checked a couple of the things this guy posted and it checked out. This isn't a very good piece of legislation if you ask me. Just a FYI.

quote:
Following the mad recommendations of Peter Singer made in NYT's Sunday magazine, it pays to take a look at what is actually in the healthcare bill.

It's worse than you can possibly imagine. Somehow, it manages to be Singer on steroids. Who wrote this bill. It has Singer's footprints all over it.

First let me say that I am against it……and I will vote against any politician who votes for it regardless of party...
Second:
Will all politicians including congress and
the president, etc. be included in the bill or
will they be excluding themselves.

What does that tell you.....

This healthcare bill worries me much more than C&T. Even if it passes, C&T can be eliminated. Once this healthcare gets passed, it won't be going anywhere.

Why in the holy hell should we provide free healthcare to all illegal aliens when the same bill says our healthcare will be rationed? And this is only one of the hundred things wrong with the healthcare plan.

3 dollar bill....

It is not about Human rights not being important, its that somebody would vote to bankrupt our country just because that person supports two mean getting married....

What two people do is of no concern to me, but fiscal issues that affect EVERYBODY come before social issues that affect one person....

Social issues are going to bankrupt our country.

exactly what Bco says

fiscal issues should never play second fiddle to social issues in any circumstance


whats the point of having this so called "equality" if the country goes to **** economically?

oh look! everyone is sick, no one has jobs, and our economy is in the ****ter! but gays can get married, life is good!

seeing as how our country was founded on freedom and equality i think it's probably a good idea not to forget about it. this argument is absolutely retarded seeing as how we will never have to choose to vote one or the other. it is a choice after all. and if the majority of americans elected obama by a landslide and did so based on social issues i would say that you are in the minority think tank, my friend

i personally am not a big fan of a lot of democratic views nor am i a fan of many republican views...but until a strong party focusing on conservative fiscal issues and liberal social issues is formed then i guess i'll just sit somewhere in the middle

i voted libertarian
