WASHINGTON President Obama said Wednesday that he was receptive to Congressional proposals that would require every American to have health insurance and that would force employers to offer health insurance to their employees. But he said there should be exemptions for people who cannot afford coverage and for small businesses in general.

The list, ping
****But he said there should be exemptions for people who cannot afford coverage and for small businesses in general.**
In other words : Rape those who can afford it to pay for those who are entitled to entitlements.
This clown is a complete idiot.
Ah the fine print.
He also said during the campaign he was going to save/create 4-5 million jobs with the stimulus plan, yet we are LOSING 500,000 jobs/month.
Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on ME! Don’t buy any of the health care promises!!!
Which would leave us pretty much where we are today. Most who do not have insurance don't carry it because they do not want it (even if they can afford it), can't afford it, don't work for an employer that offers a package, that are wealthy enough to pay-as-they-go, and people who are in this country illegally and can't get and don't want insurance (because they prefer the ER drop-in for their their medical needs).
It's amazing that Obammie the Commie can play so well both roles of Dumb and Dumber.
Did the pinhead get a magic wand when he stammered his way through the oaf of office???
This is why Conservatives should be planning their challenges to incumbents, like YESTERDAY!
One rotten system for us and one special system for Congress.
It's not working in Massachusetts, so let's implement it on the federal level. Great!
REQUIRE and FORCE.
No mistaking that.
Can anyone clarify what status retirees are in?
Most of us on Soc Sec have Medicare, and we certainly cannot afford any further premiums for insurance.
Dictators love compulsion and hate and will not tolerate freedom.
What does that statement say about Obozo?
The next EMMY AWARDS: Obama for faking the job of American President.
And a special award to the TOTUS, for it's supporting role.
It's already that way now.
These boys tell you all about Obama’s Health Care plan - near the end.
Yes. You are dead weight to the rest of society.
Your access to prescriptions will be curtailed, and any illness related to degradation from age, will not be considered treatable.
The government will provide free pickup of dead corpses so as to keep down disease . (more 'new' jobs as promised)
Sorry, I pasted before I cut.

I tried to watch. I’m just not that good with ebonics.
and we just all tell our congressmen—sure, we’ll have the health care you want us to have—as long as it’s the same as YOURS—i.e., when we get brain cancer, we can be helicoptered to Duke just like Teddy the K. there.
F#$% that ... 5th Amendment.
another attack on lower middle class. not rich enough to afford to buy it, probably don’t have a job that provides it and not poor enough to get the free hand out.
