    How is this going to help anyone? We'll be forced to buy heath insurance or we'll be fined. I'll bet we'll be paying for more than ourselves. If the poor need assitance to get shelter and food how in the hell are they going to pay for their insurance? I know who will pay! If we have to pay for our insurance and the ones who can't pay we'll need help with shelter and food! What say you?

      The mandate to buy insurance is equivalent to slavery!

      Remember the slaves were given food, shelter, housing and health care in exchange for labor. Nobody asked them if they would be ok with that arrangement, and I suppose you can argue the wealthy plantation owners acted on their behalf for their own good!

      Ironically, this is the same argument the President is using to sell us this horrific plan, which even the CBO says will cost most Americans more than they are paying now.

      The government's main responsibility is to keep us free, to protect individual freedom. Their action to impose this plan upon Americans is completely at odds with their constitutional responsibility. Essentially, the President is trading away my freedom and yours, for what he views as a "common good."

              A mandate to buy insurance under the threat of jail is different than paying taxes. The government has a right and the power to levy and collect taxes, it does not have the right to trade your freedom for what it considers to be a benefit to you.

            Having worked for many years with families for a private agency in tandem with gov't agencies with the power to remove children, I can ASSURE you that NO ONE wastes the money it takes to remove children based solely on accusations. If you've heard stories like that, then the people telling them are suspect. If ANYTHING we had trouble getting children removed from places in which it was OBVIOUS that they needed to be removed. I promise you, the gov't does not want to take children away and pay anymore for them, and except in cases of the most obvious, disgusting abuse and neglect the state gives parents chance after chance to fix problems before terminating their parental rights.

              I am following the subject of Government being able to "take" from you what you believe to belong to you.

              And I don't know about other states, but here I know of a teenager who accused a mother of abuse because she couldn't go out with a boyfriend. The cops arrived immediately and the mother was publicly shamed by the media. When the truth Finally came out.....No front Page Retraction there...was not BIG news.

              But....this is for another thread.  But you and I can agree that what you are speaking about is a real and serious issue.

                It's definitely a serious issue, that we can agree upon, but I promise you it is a waste of the gov't's money to take away children who don't need to be taken away. I'm sure there have been mistakes, but I am also sure that for the most part people's parental rights are not terminated without a sufficient reason. Even in the case you mentioned "the truth came out." Yes, the person was crucified in the media (the gov't has nothing to do with that), but in the end her parental rights were NOT terminated. The gov't does NOT want to take care of unnecessary burdens, that's my only point.

                While the gov't holds the power to do so, by enacting that power it takes on a burden it really doesn't want to bear. The only point is that I don't think we have to worry about the gov't taking our kids away if we don't jump on the health care bandwagon.

    HUBBERS
    Health Care debate
    If there was a debate regarding the healthcare bill,there wouldn't be 60% of the people not favoring the bill in its present form. President Obama and the majority leaders have not allowed the opposition party to offer amendments to the bill.The democrats had a super majority and could have passed the bill hence there was no bipartisan participation by the minority party.
    The president complained that the republicans were holding up passage of the healthcare reform bill when that statement was untrue.
    Today president Obama presented his ''health reform insurance ''bill and ended his presentation with ''let's get it done ''. The American people do not want this bill because it will raise the deficit,raise taxes and is not in the best interest of the people in these troubled times.
    The people want jobs,not an increase in government union jobs but jobs in the private sector.Unemployment stands at 9.7%.

    The stimulus bill ( $787 billion ) passed in 2009 ,not even read by our elected officials,was to jump start the economy and to provide jobs.News media reports so much of the money is waste and not producing jobs.
    Congress and president Obama  has yet to deliver those promised jobs in 13 months.Today only have of the money has been spent on saving public union jobs and bailing out state governments.

    We all can agree that the cost of healthcare insurance has to be fixed.Take note that the US healthcare system is the best in the world and that everyone has access to the system.
    Let's face it,the government is the problem and we the people need to make our elected officials accountable for the mess that the country is in.
    The growing deficit will  destroy the economy and the nation if we allow our politicians to ignore the people.

    Why can't we buy insurance across state lines? This would sure lower costs due to the competition.

    We can sure accept credit cards across state lines that is why the credit card companies bill you from the states with the highest allowed interest rates.

    what about this...

    Good morning,

    Democrats and Republicans agree -- the health care status quo isn't working for the American people.

    Health insurance is growing more and more expensive by the day. Too many of us can't afford it -- not middle class families, not businesses, not the Federal Government. Insurance companies have too much control over health care decisions that should be left between a patient and their doctor. They freely ration care based on who's sick and who's healthy; who can pay and who can't.

    On both sides of the aisle, we all agree that if we do nothing, the problem will just get worse.  Now, after a long and wrenching debate, it's time to make a decision. Yesterday, President Obama called on the United States Congress to cast a final up or down vote on health insurance reform in the coming weeks and pledged to fight for it every day until that happens.

    Watch what the President said yesterday and learn more about what's at stake:



    The President's final plan for health insurance reform puts control of health care where it belongs -- in the hands of American families and small businesses, not health insurance companies or government.

    His proposal takes the best Republican and Democratic ideas and changes three main things about the current health care system:

    It ends the worst insurance company practices and outlaws discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions.
    It reduces costs for people with insurance and makes coverage more affordable for people without it today.
    It sets up a new competitive insurance marketplace where small business owners and families can shop for the insurance plan that works best for them, giving them the same buying power and insurance choices as all members of Congress.
    We've debated the issue of health insurance reform thoroughly, not just over the past year, but over decades.  It's time to make a decision about how to finally reform health care so that it works for America's families and businesses -- not just for insurance companies.

    Let's get it done.

          I don't have better ideas, but I do know that what's been proposed won't do what the President says, that all of it is based on lies starting with the cost.

          This is supposed to cost 1 trillion over ten years. That's true except no one will get any benefits from this bill for 5 years, so the real cost when fully operational will be more like 2.5 trillion.

          Keep in mind, this is only an estimate and I'm willing to bet it will be 4 times that amount! Look at the Iraq war, estimated to be 250 billion. It's over a trillion now and still on going!
          Show me one estimate in the last 50 years where the government met or came in under budget!

          This bill is about control and power. It's about the government setting up a new society a new economy led by government not by the free market! If we allow government to do this we will be finished as a free capitalistic society!

Both parties agree that the status quo is unacceptable and gets more dire each day. Today, I want to state as clearly and forcefully as I know how: Now is the time to make a decision about the future of health care in America.

      The final proposal I've put forward draws on the best ideas from all sides, including several put forward by Republicans at last week's summit. It will put Americans in charge of their own health care, ensuring that neither government nor insurance company bureaucrats can ration, deny, or put out of financial reach the care our families need and deserve.

      I strongly believe that Congress now owes the American people a final vote on health care reform. Reform has already passed the House with bipartisan support and the Senate with a super-majority of sixty votes. Now it deserves the same kind of up-or-down vote that has been routinely used and has passed such landmark measures as welfare reform and both Bush tax cuts.

      Earlier today, I asked leaders in both houses of Congress to finish their work and schedule a vote in the next few weeks. From now until then, I will do everything in my power to make the case for reform. And now, I'm asking you, the members of the Organizing for America community, to raise your voice and do the same.

      The final march for reform has begun, and your participation is crucial. Please commit to join with me to take reform across the finish line.

      Essentially, my proposal would change three things about the current health care system:

      First, it would protect all Americans from the worst practices of insurance companies. Never again will the mother with breast cancer have her coverage revoked, see her premiums arbitrarily raised, or be forced to live in fear that a pre-existing condition will bar her from future coverage.

      Second, my proposal would give individuals and small businesses the same choice of private health insurance that members of Congress get for themselves. And my proposal says that if you still can't afford the insurance in this new marketplace, we will offer you tax credits based on your income -- tax credits that add up to the largest middle class tax cut for health care in history.

      Finally, my proposal would bring down the cost of health care for everyone -- families, businesses, and the federal government -- and bring down our deficit by as much as $1 trillion over the next two decades. These savings mean businesses small and large will finally be freed up to create jobs and increase wages. With costs currently skyrocketing, reform is vital to remaining economically strong in the years and decades to come.

      In the few crucial weeks ahead, you can help make sure this proposal becomes law. Please sign up to join the Organizing for America campaign in the final march for reform:

      When I talked about change on the campaign, this is what I was talking about: coming together to solve a huge problem that has been troubling America for 100 years and standing up to the special interests to deliver a brighter, smarter future for generations to come.

      I look forward to signing this historic reform into law. And when I do, it will be because your organizing played an essential role in making change possible.

      Thank you,

      President Barack Obama"

        Thus does Mugabe-Obama usher more than a few dems out of the Congress...

    Rest assured, the congress isn't going to be covered under any new health care bill, and the unions will also be exempt! The rest of us will get the shaft, business as usual in Washington!

    I have no doubt that a few million people will benefit from passage of this bill, but the majority of Americans, will not and they won't pay less, they will pay more! CBO estimates health care costs will continue to rise at 8% per year after 2019, that's a year AFTER the full benefits of the health care bill will go into effect.

    Remember too that assumptions about the economy and inflation could be way off! There is a looming commercial real estate crash heading our way starting in 2011, The loose fed policy and unprecedented expansion of the money supply by more than 120% also poses a huge inflation risk. With the collapse of Greece's economy and a number of European countries on the verge of default we can expect the effects to at least stunt our growth and possibly edge us closer to a default or as a minimum a downgrade of our debt!

    The bottom line is Obama already has more balls in the air then he can juggle and he's looking to throw up a few more. At some point he's going to be unable to preform and all those balls are going to come crashing down.

      We have to crawl before we walk. Walk before we run.

      We will make adjustments and new additions over time as needed to ensure that health-care coverage for almost (if not) all Americans is the best, efficient, and economical.

        Are you sure you're not Alice from wonderland?

        Pick a government entitlement program, any program. I don't think you can find a single one that isn't in financial trouble.
        Social Security - insolvent
        Medicare- insolvent
        Medicaid- insolvent
        Post Office- 7 billion in debt
        Fannie & Freddie Mac - 7 trillion in unfunded liabilities and recently part of the bail out

        It goes on and on. The government is a self perpetuating black hole for capital constantly interfering in the lives of Americans claiming with fals concerns that it must solve our problems when it's sole interest is to grow itself!

          Add the cost of the futile Iraq War and rich tax cuts to the list which decreased revenue tremendously helping to result in insufficient funding for the other programs.

          Clinton - increased revenue that cover expenses resulting in a surplus

          Bush W - reduced revenue while increasing costs resulting in a deficit and helping to contribute to the mess we are in now.

            Clinton did a great job after the people in 1994 elected a republican congress to help him.When clinton took office he promised to balance the budget in 8 years but with the republicans they did in 4 years.
            The budget surplus was a 10 year projection not a actual number.
            Bush when he took office the nation was in a recession ( he didn't complain about Clinton ) 9 months later the 9-11 disaster, the economy went back into the dumps.
            Before bush left office, money coming into the treasury was the most ever.
            The past stories go on and on.one excuse after the other,and bush is gone.
            The Dem's took over congress in 2007 unemployment 4.6%,in 2008 6.4% and in dec 2009   9.7%. and climbing.
            Obama and congress wasted 14months playing with the healthcare bill,failed to do the first thing for the American people.The jobs he promised when the stimulus was approved,where are they ?
