Forget the tinfoil hat "birth certificate" stuff. Forget the "Michelle is ugly" stuff. THIS is the kind of thing that matters, the kind of thing that has the power to screw us up royally. It would be nice to insure the "47 million uninsured", but at the cost of fucking things up for the other 250+ million?

"The White House is caught in a battle within its own party over how to finance a comprehensive overhaul of America's health-care system, as key Democrats advocate a tax plan that could require President Obama to break his campaign pledge not to raise taxes on the middle class."

C'mon. We knew THAT was a LIE the second it came out from between his Dumbo sized ears.

In order for this plan to work, the Admin. has to raise taxes and cut services to Doctors and Hospitals to provide coverage for those that do not have health care. What a friggin deal for us that have coverage. We get double fucked with this stupidity.

We will get Canadian or British style coverage and pay more for it because government inference will reduce dramatically the number of those in the health insurance business. If they can not make a profit, they will close up shop and then the government will control the whole industry. A government health care system will pick winners and losers just like they will in the banking and auto industry (note, Goldman S. and JP Morgan, GM. C.). It will get more expensive, less efficient and wind up being a disaster. States like OR and MA have already tried and abandoned this type of socialistic health care system.

President Obama's health care program will be population control. No more. No less.

This is the kind of shit that will doom the Dems. Problem is, it'll be too late.

It is to late now. There is no way possible other than war to overcome the debt they have given us in the first six months.

Being an old fart, this concerns me more than the part about taxes. A move to a Panama may be in my future.

I expect mandatory euthanasia. Look at the morals of the kids that will be making these decisions. I read a report on WorldNet yesterday that two out of three kids are leaving the churches when they leave home
