    Flayo,

    Socialism is the government using tax dollars to pay for goods and services for the public. There is a level of socialism in every country including the US of A! I have no illusion that Bachmann is being an extremist with her rhetoric, since the majority of Obamination care is to push more private insurance.

    However, I know its hard for you to believe, but this is a step towards getting to a single payor/Universal Healthcare plan. In America it would be near impossible to move to UHC in one step. Obamacare does indeed make more people reliant on government assistance (it would have been much greater if there was the public option)! It also increases the cost of private insurance to individuals and business.

    I guarantee, if Obama gets reelected, at least the public option comes back to the table.

    Giving more customers to private business is not socialism. Not shocking she's using a term she doesn't understand.

    We can only hope. Then we can get serious about putting some competition in to the market and reducing monthly premiums.

    Your first focking paragraph is a big time fail and lie, look up socialism, a true socialist country or system doesn't use taxpayer dollars to fund anything and your taxpayer dollars pay for a number of focking things besides so called health care, by your bullshat everything paid for by taxpayer dollars in socialism, don't blow bullshat in my face.

    Could you please point to the specific wording in the Constitution that says the Federal Government is responsible for 'helping Americans'. Thanks.

    To the Congress of the United States:

    One of the most cherished goals of our democracy is to assure every American an equal opportunity to lead a full and productive life.


    In the last quarter century, we have made remarkable progress toward that goal, opening the doors to millions of our fellow countrymen who were seeking equal opportunities in education, jobs and voting.

    Now it is time that we move forward again in still another critical area: health care.

    Without adequate health care, no one can make full use of his or her talents and opportunities. It is thus just as important that economic, racial and social barriers not stand in the way of good health care as it is to eliminate those barriers to a good education and a good job.

    Three years ago, I proposed a major health insurance program to the Congress, seeking to guarantee adequate financing of health care on a nationwide basis. That proposal generated widespread discussion and useful debate. But no legislation reached my desk.

    ........

    CONCLUSION

    Comprehensive health insurance is an idea whose time has come in America.

    There has long been a need to assure every American financial access to high quality health care. As medical costs go up, that need grows more pressing.

    Now, for the first time, we have not just the need but the will to get this job done. There is widespread support in the Congress and in the Nation for some form of comprehensive health insurance.

    Surely if we have the will,.........

    You can't say anything about repeating a lie over and over again anymore, because that's a reference to the idea of the Big Lie, which is associated with Nazi propaganda, which means you're comparing Michelle Bachmann to the Nazis, which means it's your fault if someone shoots her.

    (that's according to the latest wingnut exercise in 'logic')
