ABC is not only refusing to let the RNC take part in the special from the White House about nationalizing healthcare, now they are refusing to take paid ads from the RNC about why it is a bad idea.

Do you think it is a bad idea? If so, why? I don't know how I feel personally yet. My natural instinct is to scream against it but when I really think about, it isn't such a bad idea. Then again, there are a lot of families that just cannot afford it. It seems like car insurance to me, it will be one more bill that you have to pay. I'm curious to hear the other side though so I can have an educated opinion on this.

To have an informed discussion/debate, you should have both sides at the table.  Otherwise its not very informative.  

 And if you are really curious, ask your doctor what he/she thinks about it.

What do you mean by this? I would ask my doctor but I don't have one.

You won't find it on mainstream b/c of media bias.

   It means the "special" has only PROS about what they want to do.  NO cons.  And the POTUS is the one people will be questioning.  And ABC is picking the questions/audience members.    Its a distorted view.

POTUS has lost all objectivity.  Wait...did he have any to begin with?

Just read an LA Times article and Bill Mahr is sick of Obama...

The pots are stirring and people are speaking.

It's unfolding infront of those who have their eyes open and heads out of the sand.

    The grumblings are growing.  
Obama recently told the New York Times that prolonging the lives of terminally ill and very old people presently accounts for 80 percent of the total health care bill. He suggested that such outlays might not be cost-effective 

In a review of the book, Health Care Guaranteed: A Simple, Secure Solution for America, the New York Review of Books wrote that under Emanuel’s proposal, “Employee-based insurance would disappear,” and “Medicaid would also end and Medicare would be gradually phased out.”

He's wants to be cost effective with peoples lives. And messing with their employee benefits.

The news media is so biased it is pathetic. Obama cannot stand to be criticized. He was whining like a big baby because Fox is so bad to him. What a crock of bs. Someone has to report both sides and you won't find it on ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN. Journalism is dead because the media is getting to be just like socialist countries and their God is Obama.
