    Seriously! We went from a great acceptance speach of "Yes we can!" to "...we can't quite do that completely, if at all...sorry :dunno:?"

    I swear, if George Carlin was still alive we should have made him president...now there was a guy who knew how to balance the budget! (If you don't get what I mean, look it up)

    AINT THAT THE TRUTH.

    But they still want to get all this done,just gotta figure out where to get the money.
    Tax the rich but pot some loopholes in there so they can get out of paying.
    Cant tax those under the poverty line,they cant pay cause they aint got no money.
    Well who does that leave to cover those rubber checks that they sure like to write?

    Carlin was incredible. 14:39. Didn't want to take that much time to watch it, but you just can't help it. Could spend a day watching him.

    You make a good point Yote. My basic issue is where is it in our founding documents that the Gov't is supposed to take care of our every need or want? Is health care good to have? Absolutely. Is it a "must have"? Not in my book. It is certainly a risk to go without it, but it is a risk to go without life insurance as well. Should the Gov't pay for that too? There was a time I couldn't afford a car so I walked 30 minutes to work. We need to get back to the individual taking responsibility for themselves. My grandkids shouldn't have to pay the bill, which is what will happen if this gets passed.
