    We win Round 1 with the debate. We then win Round 2 with the Mass election. What makes them think they can win the next one. It will just make resistence to Obama and the democrats even stronger.

    wow...kinda sounds familiar doesn't it? If we pass this stimulus bill, we'll save millions of jobs and keep unemployment below 8%... remember that one?

    Or what about this one..."the worst of this economic crisis is behind us"

    Or maybe..."that's why I want to get rid of the lobbyists on Capitol Hill"

    Should we now suddenly believe this pie in the sky BS?

    So you, like me, are for massive cuts in Medicare?
    That is a state run entity.
    It wasn't a liberal that passed the DOPE plan, the largest social program in 70 years.
    That be Boy George.
    I am opposed to government health care but for the life of me I do not see how it could be worse than the train wreck we have now which is not health care.
    Folks, all we have now is the very best DISEASE care in he world. 4% of Americans use 54% of ALL health care costs in the country for chronic disease care. And it is rising.In 15 years 2 % of Americans will use 70% of all health care dollars for chronic disease care. And you guys like that?
    As far as health goes Americans are by far some of the unhealthiest in the world.
    And many are too blind to figure out why.

    it was GW Bush and GOP Congress that gave us the $600 billion Medicare drug program

    actually helps Obama, because he's too ineffective to get anything done, and just wait til he loses another 5-10 senate seats

    would love massive cuts in Medicare, but last GOP president expanded it, and last GOP nominee tried to stop $400 billion in cuts

    but where there's divided government, there's hope

    I agree.
    I run 2 businesses and disease care costs are killing us.
    Just received a $2,000 a year PER employee rise in the premiums.
    Unsustainable.

    The health care we have in this country is excellent. The chances of survival of just about any cancer and other disease is higher in the U.S. than almost everywhere else.

    There are a lot of reasons for that which have nothing to do with our health care system.
