You know what? I would rather my employer take half my paycheck and spend it on booze and whores than let the likes of you and Congress have one dollar of it.

Yes, but what do I know?

According to Nobel’s will, the Peace Prize should be awarded to the person who:

“ during the preceding year [...] shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.

Watch out. Fear mongering is the new scientific method.

""If we don't pass it, here's the guarantee….your premiums will go up, your employers are going to load up more costs on you," "

Well, if it does past, EVERYTHING is going to go up, because, this bill isn't about "healthcare" or "premiums", it's about government having control of everything we do, including what we eat or drink, how we exercise, our professions, our hobbies, our GUNS, and anything else they want to make us do.

They've had the IRS code for years which they used to "nudge" us in the direction they wanted us to go, and now they want the ultimate set of whips and chains to make damn sure we dance their dance and nothing else.

Mr. obama, I'd rather the premiums DOUBLE and get good and available healthcare, and go before a DEATH PANEL to decide if I'm worth living. Besides, we've already heard the OMB tell us that premiums (read: taxes) for your plan could get as high as 80% of our income...IF we have an income.

Why don't you resign the presidency and REDISTRIBUTE yourself over the rest of the world...we've had enough of you.

100 years ago we had no Medicare or Medicade, health insurance or anything of the sort. The Federal Govt. was solvent. It sounds to me we need less not more of this B.S. - this will keep our federal government from “going” bankrupt! But what will the politicians do buy votes and campaign funding

I’ve given some thought to this but I think Obama wants a public outcry, to the point where rebellion starts so he can bring down the hammer on all the little people and be Presidente’ with all power.

If they do pass it my taxes, which are going to skyrocket anyway, won't be enough to pay for it and I won't get the service required that I get now and the U.S. will ride a "bobsled" to fiscal disparity.

“...our GUNS...”

I hadn’t thought of that - but yes, it would definitely come under a “preventative health care issue” or some-such B.S. Our children’s doctor has never asked, but the family has standard orders to say “None of your business” if asked about guns in the home. (Yeah I know, he would still have his question answered, but at least we could FEEL defiant!)
