    The closer we get to this health bill passing, the crazier the threads will be about it. Its called scare tactics.

    There will be threads about higher taxes.

    There will be threads about Premiums rising.

    There will be threads about death penalties.

    There will be threads about ______________.

    Please add to this thread as the crazy threads appear. Its fear. Its the only thing they have left.

    Actually it is the White House that is using scare tactics. Look at this poor 11 year old boy whose mother died because we didnt pass healthcare. Look at all the poor people going without health insurance.
    Never mind that the current proposal (any of them) wouldn't do a damn thing to help any of those problems. They will get trotted out anyway.
    For the record, virtually everything said in opposition to whatever bill or tactic is being considered is true. The bill will increase the deficit. It will raise premiums. It will mean fewer people with employer-provided health insurance. It will ultimately lead to a much greater role for government and it will lead to death panels as care is rationed in the face of rising costs. These things are certainties because we've seen them in states that have tried something similar.

    There will be higher taxes...there has to be if we are adding 30 million to the healthcare ranks.

    There will be higher premiums...there has to be if we are eliminating pre existing conditions clauses

    Not sure what you mean about death penalties...but if you mean death panels....there will be rationing...there has to be aws every similar healthcare plan out there has resulted in rationing.

    Maybe if your congress people told the truth and explained WHY these will happen, more would be on board.

    Problem is, they are so busy trying to dodge the truth, people like you see it as scare tactics.

    Please...do me a favor....explain to me how we will increase those with healthcare by as much as 30 million, elimninate pre existing conditions and increase the government payroll for healthcare administrative personnel without increasing premiums, taxes and rationing.

    I just stated facts.....so please do not give me talking points...those criteria are facts...increase in those insured, elimination of pre existing conditions, and increase in government payroll....so responds with facts please.

    Betcha you cant.

    And yet, support for the bill has slowly but steadily increased. And for all the talk about the unpopularity of the Democrats in Congress, and the president, the Republicans remain in last place in that regard.

    The best way to scare the piss out of someone is allow them to read the friggen thing....which seems to be next to impossible to do.

    Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama make it sound like the health care bill that still hasn't been written will cause rose pedals to blow your our asses.

    After hearing all of the stupid exaggerations they've made I think people need to be scared. Like his broken promises during the campaign....this too is a big fucken sham.

    Maybe in Congress after a few rides in Air Force One and a few bribes behind closed doors....none of which can be denied.....and the Dems are less popular.
