What does it say that Democrats don't think you deserve the health care they are pushing until you have paid four years worth of it first? Another answer on this board got me thinking, and it seems as though the Lib that spoke up and said that Reps want you to not get sick and if you do get sick then die quickly hasn't processes that plenty more will die (probably more since they will be required to pay for health insurance they can't afford instead of buying OTC drugs to treat themselves) before the Dem plan goes into effect.
So aren't the dems just saying 'don't die until you have finished paying four years of health costs without receiving benefits'?

You are basing this argument on the ramblings of a far left wing Congressman doing his Saul Alinsky act on the House floor. I'm a conservative republican. I know the difference between a whiner and a plank in the opposing party's platform. He is a blow hard. Did anyone really take his comments seriously. I just found them absurd to the point of ridiculous.

Ummm ... it isn't an "argument - it's a fact.
Arugment as in debate. I was talking about her using the Congressman's bashing and insults as a basis for debate. I say - defeat the damn thing and never, ever bring it up again. This is the second time (Hilary-care was the first.) I just don't know that this is solid ground for a debate. Debate the UHC bill until the cows come home. It needs to be argued and debated.

Waldorf got what I was saying. I am perplexed by the fact that this again is one of those 'we have to do it now, the time is now, this cannot wait' (just like the stimulus), yet we will not benefit from it for four years, at the soonest. Rather I would think that the gov. is so friggin' broke that they really need the interest free loan of taxpayer money to spend because Chine has done dried up their our line of credit. No country in their right mind would lend to us, when we are all to happy to lend it out to other countries that have no intention and no real possible way of paying us back. It is not an emergency if it isn't happening for 4 years.
I did watch the clip of the congressman and it seems that he operates under the old 'he who speaks loudest, wins' process. He says Republicans don't have a plan, but it's clear that he hasn't taken the time to read their ideas. He is a fringe idiot.

Pelosi just said on Greta that she will not ask for the Congressman to apologize for accusing the republican members of causing a Holocaust. She also said, and I had to chuckle, that this is just like the republicans to demand an apology for a democrat just calling it like he sees it. HA! Can you say JOE WILSON Madam Speaker? He just called it as he saw it, but you almost popped your botox demanding an apology. And then she said the republicans have no plan which is a huge lie. There is a plan and she refuses to allow it to be presented on the floor. That way she can "claim" there is no plan. The double standard is almost sickening.
