    "Let's just sign this thing so we know what's in it.".( paraphrased)---Nancy Pelosi

    A snip from an informative article:

    Health insurers Wellpoint, Cigna, Aetna, Humana and CoventryOne will stop writing policies for all children (Six Months Later... | Michael F. Cannon | Cato Institute: Commentary). Why? Because Obamacare requires that they insure already sick children for the same price as well children.

    No. She, and money of the rest of us, are against the government interfering in the market for health care.

    Yes the cold hard laws of basic economics are not the friends of the Obama administration.

    Yeah you dishonest lib. That's exactly what she said. Maybe you should ask that question of Obama because he is the idiot who didn't take basic econ I guess and foresee what would happen when you require and insurance company to charge the same rate regardless of the level of risk. I found this section particularily interesting

    Similar to the way decency, compassion and common sense aren't compatible with the republican party.

    Indeed, very dishonest.

    Just as those who criticize Obama's policies are accused of Racism, those who criticize ObamaCaare are accused of wanting to harm children.

    Obviously this statement hits home for Boedicca since she felt that she needed to Neg Rep me for it. Someone has to look out for the sick children of the country since you could care less. Be Proud!

    I'll be honest though. I know that republicans aren't against children having healthcare (I hope :) ). But I also know that the only type of opinion around here that matters to most people here are the extremist views, so I had to go over the top with my statement just to feel like I fit in.
