    This could happen still because today it got passed in the finance committee of the senate so it could still happen. We need to start calling out elected officials and letting them know how we feel so this gets stopped.

    Yes because one phone call is going to change months of people's positions. It will even definitely work further in a majority Democratic state. :lol:

    Health care reform is going to pass.

    You far right cons have forgotten something: you lost.

    Oh great! Well I can tell you right now, I ain't getting no Government Healthcare Plan... We need to get the Government out of healthcare. The Free Market is the best way to allocate products and services. Sadly, we haven't had that for a long time.

    I wish we would start acting like it....I wish we would run this thing threw just like the republicans would if they had this much power.

    We will get it though, I just like to rub it in their faces a little. I have issues, but I don't hear the voices anymore....:eek: :cool:

    Then dont. Keep your insurance. If you think you are paying a fair price, THEN DONT CHANGE IT. Personally, I am on Tricare and I love it. I feel as though medicare republicans should stop using that service to prove a point.

    I'm curious, why does the democrat party want to wait until 2013 before any health care bill they pass actually takes affect?
    If it's so damn critical, why wait until 2013?
    Could it be that they want to wait until after the 2012 election before they completely fuck us over?

    I want you to pay very special attention to the 2 gubenatorial races that are being held on Nov 2 of this year. The republican candidates are winning by double digit margins over the democrats. Corzine is in hot water in New Jersey, these are both overwhelmingly democratic states, and they will both vote in conservative governors this year. Virginia and New Jersey will go red in November.:clap2::clap2::clap2::clap2:

    This is nothing more than a pre-curser of what's to come in the 2010 and 2012 elections.
