    I understand this historic moment more than anyone else.

    My mother had to make that fateful decision.

    With cancer eating away at her body, she'd chosen to feed our family, versus continuing to pay the high health insurance rates...

    She died on July of 1992

    Forget you insensitive GOPers who never had an illness devestate your family' finances! I'm glad that this is over with.

    To my mom, in heaven, I say thank you for your sacrifice and your death has been avenged.

    I miss you.

    Demonstrably untrue.
    The Health Care Bill will not save anyone.
    It will raise costs without providing the extra caregivers required to make universal coverage more than a pipe dream.
    UHC will not save the government money.
    Within 15 years it will have the nation on the verge of bankruptcy.

    Mediscam was supposed to do everything the UHC bill purports to do.
    It failed in every measurable way.
    This bill will be an even more massive failure.

    Finally, even today, someone diagnosed with cancer and receiving the best care possible may not survive and beat the cancer, so your conclusion that it was lack of health care that doomed your mother is at best hyperbole.

    "Within 15 years it will have the nation on the verge of bankruptcy."

    With or without the healthcare bill though.

    Did you just come out of a coma ?
    Depending on which liar you ask the fallen Mpyre is between 3 and 13 TRILLION in the hole.
    It bankrupted long ago. Nukes and an enormous military is all that has kept it running.
    Nations around the world are spending wildly..... in hopes of someday taking YOU off the map with your welfare child, IsNtReal.

    So by passing this health care bill we've now got a cure for cancer too? Who knew?

    Not just cancer, Rick. Obama has outlawed death, permanently, with immediate effect. Great, huh?





    Of course, this whole 'overcrowed planet' thing is just a right wing scare tactic. Obama is going to create more room on the planet next year.

    This is all true, I heard it from Media Matters - those guys don't lie. (That's a lie)

    This is a fearmongering, histrionic appeal to emotion. Nothing more nor less.
