    Alex, YOUR AN IDIOT! Americans want and need Healthcare reform. If you RETHUGLICANS can’t support it, Get outta the way and let US help the struggling American people. It’s not a ‘Political Kamikaze Mission,’ it’s just the opposite. If Democrats pass HCR and it works, You Idiots will be the minority for years to come and may never get the Majority back.

    Now is the time for Republicans to come forward and show they want real HCR and not just some ‘Buying Insurance across state lines!’ crap. Or ‘TORT REFORM, TORT REFORM, TORT REFORM. Let’s look at how that’s worked in individual states!

    Stop making this about Politics.

    Democrats, IMO, Republicans have shown since we started this thing (with a blank sheet of paper I might add), they have nothing to offer for a HCR bill. They have had no intrest in a Bi-Partisan Bill, They just want to keep a bill from passing any way they can. I say if they don’t offer a better solution (and fast), re-conciliation awaits them– Within a month. Use it.

    LOL! Obama doesn't even understand car insurance, how the hell can he understand health insurance? Junker? Liability only. Junker, even when not at fault? Blue book, not repairs.

    Grasshopper, calm down. Alex is right.... If the Dems nuke this through, it is political suicide for them. Come November, spotting a Dem in DC will be like spotting a black rino.... (not African American Republicans) but a species on the verge of extinction. Because the majority of Americans do not want this bill. They want reform.... REFORM.... not some fucking monstrosity of a bill that doesn't actually solve anything. Try not to be an idiot all your life, little left one.

    Yeah, when pigs fly.
    For starters, the taxes to pay for this shitpile begin right away but the actual benefits don't start for 5 years. That was the only way to get the bill to score as it did.
    No, Alexander is right. And he is pretty moderate. When you get a moderate like Alexander saying this, you'd better listen.

    I don't understand why any Democrat actually considers this bill reform or for the good of our people. I am amazed they don't see the corruption of this debacle. Stunning.

    Alexander is right, it is political suicide. I wish he would shut up and just encourage the democrats to do it.
