    I just read a post saying the conservatives are using fear tactics

    How?
    they have not had congress sense 07
    (just the house this year)
    the white house sense 09

    Libs do you have any idea how foolish this stuff sounds?
    can you help me understand what your talking about?

    That since Barry told us two years ago from the broadcast booth of the All Star game that the country is broke we're now broker because of wasteful stimulus spending, trillion-plus dollar budget deficits, etc., etc.

    What would you call a panel of people deciding what insurance is going to cover or not
    When I had cancer, if my cancer was not covered by insurance, I would be dead
    What would you call this panel that is real?

    "obamacare is a government takeover of healthcare"
    "death panels"
    "healthcare bill is a job killer"

    If so, these panels already exist in our current private sector insurance carriers. Yes? When my MRI was ordered by my doctor, and declined by such a panel by CIGNA, what would you call it?

    Because the number one goal of private insurance is to "make a profit". No matter what.

    How many insurance policies do you have to skim to make a single $100,000,000.00 CEO paycheck? The VA spends 96 cents per dollar on the patients.

    Companies are willing to degrade the environment government is protecting to make a buck. Companies only care about making money.

    Why does something this simple need to be explained? I mean, really! Some people ought to feel ashamed, just a little.

    Calling a panel that decides on what is covered by your insurance a death panel is reality
    sorry

    The liberal becomes very confused, very fast
    No-one ever claimed that private sector insurance companies are without sin

    What the real issue is Obama lied about how we are going to pay for it, for starters
    now I ask a question about these so called scare tactics

    were are they?
