    I don't know why they pick on sailors but come on, Democrats worried about overspending and Bankruptcy.. sheez. The Democrats make sailors look like monks.

    Do I detect a little Fear Mongering here....:lol:... no it's just too blatant...

    President Obama told ABC News anchor Charles Gibson that the federal government "will go bankrupt" if Congress does not pass a health care bill, among other problems.

    He added that the costs of Medicare and Medicaid are on an "unsustainable" trajectory and no is action taken to bring them down, "the federal government will go bankrupt."

    Almost 17% of our GDP and rapidly rising. We can't sustain this level of healthcare spending.

    I realize your on the inside and I respect your opinion.

    I would feel allot more comfortable by an honest bi-partition effort on the problem.

    I just noticed during the Clinton years insurance costs started going up at an alarming rate, Bush years accelerated and now unbearable. I'm afraid the plan now is too chaotic and the cost will go up from it.

    What's your opinion?

    They had a chance to enact true reform, and they botched it. I am pissed :evil:

    For the record, this is what I was hoping for:

    Physicians for a National Health Program

    'Course, I realize there's no chance we'll ever have single payer...
