    Q: If this hc bill is so great why do they have to bribe Dems to vote for it?

    Q: If the student loan takeover is so great, why are they putting in the hc bill?

    A: They both suck.

    The education loan part will likely cost an additional trillion within the next decade also. There are legitimate functions for government, but whenever they've tried to meddle in what should be private or state, they fuck it up, but good. Between the graft and unintended consequences, we're heading from the white water, over the falls.
