    I don't get it. (Duh!) Why is the government going to tax me for HCR to correct
    a problem that I didn't create and then take my money and pay the insurance companies, drug companies and hospitals who did create the problem? Something is really wrong with this picture. How does this make any sense at all and what happened to the party that I trusted to do the right thing? How do these people expect to be reelected? Where do they think people are going to find the money to pay this? What planet are they living on?
    I think Will's mom may be on to something...:D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    its because we're not " Informed " like them,DJ.

    A bunch of condesending, holier then thou, stuck up jerkazoids who were told a million times this was going to happen, and they are surprised as hell when it does.

    Moonbats thought they elected this guys to rob and ruin everyone they disagreed with, not them.

    4. They're not going to tax you
    Which goes to show, I think, that you really don't get it.

    If you're speaking of the excise tax, even then they're not going to tax you. The tax is on the insurer. Will they pass along the cost to you? Well, no: your employer, if she or he is not insane, is going to find a plan that doesn't exceed the very generous maximum. Which doesn't necessarily mean it will have significantly worse benefits. (Maybe you'll have to make a $20 copay for office visits instead of none--but that's a good thing. Not you, but maybe lots of your coworkers overuse doctors' visits, going for every hangnail, and thus raising the costs for the whole nation.) If your plan is high because your older, or a coal miner or fire fighter, that's covered, too. Your plan has to be way way higher for it to qualify for the tax. Again, it's not you who will pay the tax.

    Oh! I was thinking it was some procedure. I naturally assumed she would approve of health care reform.... and knew that it wouldn't be "free".
