That cartoon is out-of-date. The new estimated cost is $26 trillion over 20 years. So, I would say - YES!

Well, if you ladies haven't noticed, we are in two wars now, and Obama is in office. Iraq and Afghanistan. Plus you have the health care bill. The cartoon makes it out like repubs want war when it was congress who pushed for war, and Obama said he was going to bring the troops home, which he HAS NOT, as a matter of fact, he has been sending over to Afghanistan.

Viridian: I think you are comparing apples and oranges. The war(s) were not completely of our choosing. There was a small event which acted as a catalyst to the war(s) - the terrorist attack on our soil on September 11, 2001. Now, what is the exact event you will offer as the catalyst to this largely unwanted pink elephant of a UHC bill? Whether you agree with the war(s) or not, you have to admit they were a response to something. This UHC is just a "Look at me!!!!!! Look what I did! Maybe I'll get the Nobel Prize for Stupidity!" type of bill.
