What is it that you all can't comprehend? Just because there is a health care reform bill out there, it doesn't mean that it is a good bill. With the vague language and control it gives government, doesn't it concern you in the least that this bill leave your health in the hands of government officials? You know, the same ones that are caught cheating on their taxes, cheating on their wives, stealing campaign funds for personal entertainment? Really, and you want them to have the power to approve or deny you care?

I've been at work and not listening to the news, but The Kennedy Health Care Bill? What did I say, what did I say? I knew they would name it after him and make the Congress feel obligated to vote for it in honor of him.

Anon, I don't want you on my side. You sound angry and bitter. I want real reformists that want what is best for the people, letting them decide what is best for themselves, and the freedom to choose what is best for them.
That's cool that you want government to control your health care, it's just not what I want for my family. I can think for myself and decide for myself what is in the best interest of my family.
I don't really care for politicians to to delegate out the job of telling the public what it must pay for, how much they must pay for it, and what it will cover (after all, you rarely get what you pay for in health care).

I hear supporters of the health care bill say all the time that Republicans had 8 years to do something with health care and now their time is up.
Are you all serious? So you are willing to ignore more than half of the voting population to pass a bad agenda that does nothing for the people and only gives handouts to big Pharma and Medical and gives you no other options than to go with a public demand (let's not pretend it's really an option)? Wow, and then you speak of how short sighted the conservatives in our nation are?
I <3 Irony!

Oh Waldorf, you know they don't concern themselves with actual facts. They get so overcome with emotion when thinking about their free health care they fail to see that there is a hefty price tag and that the actual reform they are making such an emergency doesn't even kick in until 2013. I suppose that was smart of them though. They certainly wouldn't want any real negative reactions to fuel the loss of support during an election year.
