    The Repubublican Pledge plan calls for the repeal of the Health Care legislation recently going into effect. There is not much to replace it. Abraham Lincoln sent hundreds of thousands of white people to under-funded field hospitals in his time. GOP will now send hundreds of thousands of all kinds of people to under-funded local hospitals in their time. State and local governments will have to fund the current health care system as is usual. That is apparently thier plan!

    Much of the public actually thinks that the national health care legislation did not go far enough!

    AP Poll Repeal Many wish health law went further - Road Runner

    The Republicans, on the other hand, want to go back--apparently to origins of Lincoln-level species. The Tea Party wants to go back further than that, even to leeches.

    Well, if there's a poll, it must be true.

    I sometimes wonder how many Americans actually have the ability to think for themselves. Many of us seem unable to discuss anything without producing some ridiculous 'evidence' from some nonsense source or cherry picking polls to back up a biased view. Sad really.... and our politicians love it.

    Then why are most Dems up for re-election not running on it and many Dems running on "I didn't vote for it"?

    Nice try... keep dreaming... it's over buddy.

    With that said, mos Americans know something needs to be done, just not what was done. How about addressing portability, tort reform, eliminating interstate restrictions, allowing employers to pool together, etc.? There was no thought that went into this other than the mantra of the farleft.

    Nah, let's just systematically drive the insurance industry out of business.

    Mostly, white people in the Civil War had a one in four chance of survival at all. The Tea Party knows this, and clearly the Abraham Lincoln Republicans knew this at the time. These are the kinds of people who drove out in carriages from Washington, D. C., to run away from the Battle of Bull Run twice.

    Anyone recalls that Vice President Cheney was able to shoot a Republican lobbyist, even in the face, but was more inclined to let even Osama bin laden go free. The U. S. military was sent elsewhere, led on another wild goose chase of the Party of Abraham Lincoln!

    Characteristically, the Republicans would further not ask of the newly freed, just they wanted to do next.

    The Tea Party has not bothered to ask the majority of Americans: Just what they want to do next!

    "Portability" usually implies removing employers from the equation. The alternative way to individualize insurance policies but also retain a role for employers while allowing them to enhance their clout by entering a single risk pool would be to construct some sort of health insurance exchange for small businesses that allows employees to select an individual plan that belongs to them and not the company (similar to what Utah is doing). But that's what is going to happen under the reform law, which creates "SHOP exchanges" for small businesses.

    So what are you talking about?

    "Tort reform" is no more specific a suggestion than is "health reform." What are you asking for?

    What's interesting is that the people who are asking for a federal law to overturn state consumer protection laws are also often the same people criticizing the ACA as a dangerous overreach of federal authority.

    That said, ACA allows for a few different kinds of interstate insurance purchasing. And by setting a uniform minimum set of standards for insurance exchanges it opens the door to unlimited interstate insurance purchasing in the future. But if what you're asking for is simply deregulation then no, it doesn't do that. Nor is it clear why that would be a good idea.

    Stephanie Poster!

    ABC Network, GMA, aired a discussion among teenagers on the matter of Moslem Tolerance. One finally piped up that in the Bible that he was trained in, that Mohammed is somehow a false prophet.

    Mostly, Neither the Old nor the New Testaments are known to contain no such statement.

    In newer versions, the New Testament does know about "evil-doers," even: And prophets. Anyone can see in Luke 13:25-30, about who get whats in the Christian religion.

    USCCB - NAB - Luke 13

    So if the prophets go to the Heaven of Jesus Christ: Then there is also the alternative presented.

    There are lots of stories to be told
