    Ah yes, a huge surprise. Obama promises to kill measures that would bring costs down in order to secure the support of a group that he needs...

    In just a few months, we will hopefully see SCOTUS strike the whole damn thing down!

    But wait, he's gonna stand up to Big Drug, and those Pharmaceutical companies are republicans!!!!!!!!!!! Oh wait they're not. Big government and big business make out all the the time, yet liberals wanna see them as advasaries. hint "They're on the same team"

    That's why they favor alot of regulation AND why you have superrich that love democrats. regulation they can pay for, they pass it on to us. And it makes it harder to have a startup challenge them.

    Lobbyists run this country. Until Money gets out of politics, it will always be this way.

    Well that's not gonna happen, so lets come up with plan B. I got one, lets standardize laws. First criminal laws.
    For the same offence, everyone gets the same punishment. Now we can apply that to business. If you want to regulate the soft drink industry, then regulate EVERY company, no more sweet heart deals, k? I'm all for it.no more picking winners and losers.

    No -- you elect politicians who PANDER to lobbyists. It's the POWER to PANDER stupid.

    A company becomes road-kill under the Big Govt tires if they don't have lobbyists.

    Ask MicroSoft.. They were lobbying virgins when they got screwed big-time...

    Bigger govt -- more power to grant favors and Solyndras... Wouldn't happen if the govt didn't see itself as Chairman of the Board over everything..

    Really franco? So arent liberals like you the ones that say how unfair the system is to minorities, that they get the death penalty more often, blah blah blah. Standardizing the punishments would eliminate that.
    Anyway why have different classifications of murder and just hit someone with a murder charge and let the "judge" sort it out?
    I love liberals who complain of biases and of unjust punishments, yet they never want to standardize them. They just like to complain I guess.
