  • If it isn't HR3200 where is the new piece of legislation? If there is new legislation why hasn't HR3200 been officially scrapped? Is it a House or Senate Bill? Why is it still under wraps?

  • Because they don't want the outcry they've had that put a stop to what they wanted in the bill in the first place. They're just going to shove it through and THEN tell us what we're looking at.

  • Who knows what the hell he's calling it today.  He "claims" he won't sign anything that adds one dime to the deficit...he better not sign his planned, government takeover of the health-care system then.  He's either insane, or lying through his teeth if he thinks he can have what he wants without it costing anything.  My bet is he's a LIAR.  We already know he lied about not providing health-care for illegals, or covering abortions.  His plan will cut into Mediare so much, that him saying, "We're not going to pull the plug on granny" is also another LIE.


    The people who actually believe he's going to give them "free" health-care are the ones who are insane, or maybe just really, really ignorant.

  • Well, thats all he has to go by. His message is no different than before just a few well placed word here and there.
    Nothing has changes no matter how many lies he slips in there. I hope people realize it.

  • Uh no, since he is no longer pushing the public option. Why haven't they started their own bill yet? Hmm lets see...How many days has congress been back in session? Legislation doesn't get "scrapped" it stalls. Which is what has already happened thanks to Pubs

    Indeed, I would like to thank the "Pubs" too!!! I can't imagine what would've happened if we all just blindly agreed with it.
