    I can't yet take a side until I know the details. Obama is a word smith. Just like when he says "public option" which to most people means optional, but in the bill he proposed meant not optional government single payer mandate & dictated rationing"

    I m not sure about it being optional or not. I think the confusion is about the people being forced to have insurance ("having insurance" or "not having insurance" not being a choice), confusing this with the public option being forced upon people while people still can choose between a government option and a private option. Clearly the private industry is afraid that people will pick the government option, maybe because their product is not as good as they claim? And that the private industry will be beaten by the public option. (but that s another discussion)

    No, I read Obama's HR-3200 & it was not optional in that bill. I did not read the one that passed & got signed into law because I did not have time before it passed.

    You are badly informed: the public option is not in the bill that was passed & got signed into law. For what I understand from the initial bill: there always was a choice between private and public in the bill, the public option was never forced upon people (unless they could not afford any private option available, but then people couldn't get a private option anyway, even if they wanted to. So it really doesn't make it less of a choice than what they had before).

    Like I said spin artist. I was talking about the H.R. 3200 bill Obama proposed. Not the one that passed.

    Against all the sumbitches. The Dems, the Repubs and the greedy bankers and corporate bastards who make our lives a living hell.

    Fuck 'em all. Fire 'em all. Run 'em off the planet.

    Send 'em to Obama's Mars.....that's THE TICKET~ :D

    Which party of deregulation? The Democrats or Republicans? They're both guilty as hell of it. The Dems deregulated the mortgage companies, (Fannie Mae), and the Repubs deregulated the banks, (Wall Street). Stop being so partisan. It's our country, it's not about fucking sides you fucking ape!
