    30 million plus people without health insurance means a lot of people are walking around sick spreading diseases. Sick workers are not productive. Neither are people trapped in jobs they hate just to provide health insurance for their family. Healthy nations are productive nations. Can we afford this healthcare bill? Of course we can. This bill will cost less than what we spent on the Iraq wars with lot more benefits. As far as additional taxes, we are one of the lowest taxed nations on earth. Only Ireland and Iceland have lower taxes.

    If you don't have health insurance you're walking around sick, spreading diseases?

    Really?

    Hmm, these were probably some of the arguments used by com...progressives when they defended Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and social welfare programs.

    Fantasy worlds are nice to live in, but dangerous when you exist in reality.

    Not having health insurance doesn't mean that someone isn't healthy. Nor does it mean that they lack health care.

    Just sayin'.

    Are you serious?

    When I moved from to the States from Spain, I remember my parents telling me how high taxes were over here...

    So, no.
