    I believe the 'slaughter' rule will finally come into play in November.

    When the lies peel away (the CBO scored this a money saver) and the benifits are seen this will change.

    This bill cost to much!!! the actual cost, plus the cost of loss of fredom, and what is the cost for the people who will die because of this bill from the deathpanels and rationing that are coming. Just reported is the increase in cost incured to all young people to pay for this forced health insurance program. I want to know this, why are the government workers, senators, congressmen, their families and aids all excluded from this program?

    the CBO scored it a money saver based on a 20% cut in medicare payments to doctors.

    do you really think the AMA signed on to this travesty without receiving assurances that this would never happen? really?

    wanna buy a bridge?

    They also played a game with the 500 billion out of Medicare. Apparantly that money will be spent twice.

    The CBO can only crunch the numbers they are given. The Dems played a very nice shell game so the numbers would reflect savings.

    As the facts come out folks will begin to see what this monstrosity will actually cost them and add to the deficit.

    Lots of folks already bought that bridge. LOL

    In the end...it is a major victory for the Dems.

    Right now....regardless of your poll, it is about a 50-50 split for and against. That doesn't mean the 50% against are irate. The actual number who are irate is the usual 25% who are Rush Limbaugh Republicans.

    Come November, the voting public will realize that granny is still alive, there are no death panels, Governmant has not taken over their healthcare and the sun still rises every morning.

    The issue come November will be the Economy and not Healthcare

    And the economy is looking good
