  • Of course it's all true. President Obama wants complete control over everyone and everything in the country. He's evil incarnate and clearly wants to euthanize everyone who's sick or old. He's a Socialist and a Communist and a dictator.  I don't know how he can be all those things, but read through the "questions" in this section, and if you lack any functioning brain cells, you'll see how the president is out to get us all.  He also hates Christians and is fronting the war on Christmas.


    That's why I'm heading out today to buy special Christmas presents for all of my family--industrial-strength tin-foil hats.  It may be the only thing that saves us from the impending complete government take-over of everything that makes us individuals.

  • It will be relying on companies brought on and following the governments rules. They will tell them what they can do and what they can't. If they don't follow the rules they will be kicked out of the Obama exchange. Total control is what they are aiming for and I find it ridiculous you would even dispute that. They knew the people would not accept it but they will continue to nudge them toward their end goal of government control of health care.

  • DUH anonymous duh no shit..but it doesn't change the fact that because of certain provisions in the bill (which pelosi figured we didnt need to read just had to pass it to find out whats in it) will cause problems.Let me tell you TN tried something very similar to this with TNcare and employers just dropped their employees insur left and right leaving them to go onto the govy insur...almost bankrupted the state before it was overturned.

  • How was it a lie?

    "You know we’re going to control the insurance companies". -- Joe Biden

    "The time has come for universal health care in America," -- Barrack Obama

    "The Medicare expansion would "perhaps get us on the path to a single-payer model." -- Anthony Weiner

    There are plenty more, but you should get my point

  • I think Dems want it but know right now the masses don't. I think the current plan if allowed to continue will collapse things for everyone enough the masses will cry for gov to fix it then they can try to make us more like Europe. Funny many countries in Europe are struggling to pay for all their social entitlements and realize it is unsustainable. Craziness.
