    Obama to spell out new healthcare plan - Yahoo! News

    The assholes are going to go for reconcilliation, and end the viabilty of their party for good.

    The American people soldily rejected their 'plan' but they will try to force it down our throats anyway.

    Of course, it will be repealed the same way they passed in december, the fools. :lol:

    Six Republican ideas already in the health-care reform bill

    (1) "Let families and businesses buy health insurance across state lines."

    (2) "Allow individuals, small businesses, and trade associations to pool together and acquire health insurance at lower prices, the same way large corporations and labor unions do."

    (3) "Give states the tools to create their own innovative reforms that lower health care costs."

    (4) "End junk lawsuits."

    5) The tax break for employer-sponsored insurance.

    (6) And finally, we shouldn't forget the compromises that have been the most painful for Democrats, and the most substantive. This is a private-market plan.

    You are wrong this time.

    No party can ever survive by pushing through something this hated directly against the stated will of Americans, this will shatter the Dems worse then anything else, as it will tear down the minority's abilty to oppose legislation and make everything about a slight majority rules.

    This could be the means of securing control of American government by the Democrats for generations. America wants health care. This may not be enough but it's a start.

    Give me a Poll (Thats not a FOX Poll..Has to be non-partisan) that suggests the Majority is against the Public Option..It hasn't been "Shoved down your throats," It's been the second longest debate in Congress history.

    That's pretty much been the underlying fear the GOP has had of this all along.

    Wait until the courts find this POS unconstitutional. The bill depends on "buy in" from every consumer in America. The only way to guarantee that is to make it a crime not to buy a financial product. That is unconstititional.
    The Dums have yet to produce a bill that people like. The more they talk the less people like it. It is a sign of how out of touch the Obama Administration is that they are pushing this crap. What happened to "jobs jobs jobs"?? That was last week.
    I don't think they have the Democratic votes to pass it because the Dems already know they're heading for obscurity come November.

    It's true, polls consistently show Americans want a public option. Show me one, even Faux, that show otherwise.

    Polls for support of the current bill have been more mixed, but never with "Disapprove" outweighing "Approve," and remember many who "Disapprove" do so because they feel the bill does not go far enough (Taking a Kucinich approach)

    Sorry Xenophobe, as hard as your heroes at Fox have tried to frame it otherwise, support for a public option has been massive and consistent, I defy you to prove otherwise.

    So much wishful thinking, so little to support it coming true...
