Really simple question.......How do we PAY for it?

We have NO money. We have bailed all these companies out,China practically owns us and I am pretty sure I just read the president is giving 2B more to cash for clunkers. No matter who got us here, or what is actually in the bill (no one has a clue).....

Where do we get the MONEY to PAY for it??

  • No one wants to admit it, but we will have to pay for it. And those of us who are already paying for it will be paying more.

  • Health care is already costing our nation twice what it would under UHC. Sure UHC will be expensive, but we are ALREADY paying through the teeth with privatized health care.

  • How is private ins costing our "nation"? It costs the individuals who pay for it. I get THAT and that it may seem cheaper for individuals to have UHC because they won't write a check every month for UHC...but they will still pay for it with taxes! Which brings us back to the OQ .........How DOES UHC get paid for? and I will add How is it cheaper?

  • Obama seems to think he'll keep taxing the productive members of society. Problem with Obama's reasoning is since he cannot control our actions and we are blessed with opposable thumbs, we have the ability to NOT work as hard, close up our businesses, move our businesses out of the country, work less, and make less--but still comfortable, and ride out the storm!


    Hey Obama!  You can't get blood from a stone...just thought you'd want to know!!!  LOL
