Is this the mentality people seriously? Newsweek Editor Admits: Health Care Bill a ‘Fiscal Fraud’ But ‘I’d Still Vote for It’

  • I don't understand the mind set of representatives that don't want a bill, but can't find the "intestinal fortitude" to stand their ground and vote against the legislation. Is the cost that great to cast a vote that isn't in lock step with the rest of the party you are a member? Where did doing what is right because it is just that - right - and not worrying about the rest? Are our Congressional representatives so weak that they can't stand up and tell the Pelosi's and Reid's to take their deals and pressure elsewhere? Wrong is wrong even if everybody is doing it. Right is right even if no body is doing it. I guess they didn't learn that lesson from mom. "Would you jump off the roof just because every one else did?"

  • Over the weekend, Newsweek assistant managing editor Evan Thomas offered an intriguing insight into the MSM’s approach to the liberal health care bill slowly rolling its way through the Democratic-controlled Congress. After conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer accurately pointed out how the Senate bill only pretends to be “deficit-neutral” by front-loading the tax collection process while delaying the payouts, Thomas agreed: “Charles is right. This bill is a fiscal fraud.” But he quickly added: “I’d still vote for it.”

  • And here again is why our country is in the lousy shape it's in. & BTW... President Bush knew what he was doing & the Republicans knew it... BIG difference here! The dems are idiotically supporting a brain-dead communist who doesn't know the first thing about being the president of a free, capitalistic country... well he really has no experience in being the president of anything, he's got a bit of experience as just a measly community planner. That being said, I wouldn't allow him to plan my kid's birthday party...

  • It is time to stop holding Bush up as the epitomy of whatever you find wrong in the world. He must have really done something right if he is all you have. BO has created his own issues that are completely different and independant of Bush. He was elected 1 year ago. Bush is no long part of the equation. BO promised very specific things in his campaign and after he was sworn in. He has failed on all his promises. Bush had ZERO to do with that.
