...Who is going to do the rounding up? Half of our military is in the sand box and stationed around the world...
We are talking about 10's of millions of people here. They don't have enough people to secure and round all the people resisting up.

...I am literally left stunned at the stupidity of some of the comments...

...If you're too stupid to see the need for this action....too stupid to see that it is necessary for global competition.....then you're too stupid to engage in the debate...
..If this attempt at a huge social change and improvement fails, I'll have a huge group of fellow "citizens" to dislike and abuse at every opportunity.
Almost 1.3 million people — or the combined populations of Birmingham and Coventry — work for the NHS, which is one of the world’s biggest employers.
Only the Chinese Army and the Indian State Railways are believed to employ more people — with 2.3 million and 1.5 million staff respectively
A deputy White House chief of staff, Jim Messina, confirmed Mr. Tauzin’s account of the deal in an e-mail message on Wednesday night.
“The president encouraged this approach,” Mr. Messina wrote. “He wanted to bring all the parties to the table to discuss health insurance reform.”
The new attention to the agreement could prove embarrassing to the White House, which has sought to keep lobbyists at a distance, including by refusing to hire them to work in the administration.
The White House commitment to the deal with the drug industry may also irk some of the administration’s Congressional allies who have an eye on drug companies’ profits as they search for ways to pay for the $1 trillion cost of the health legislation.
But failing to publicly confirm Mr. Tauzin’s descriptions of the deal risked alienating a powerful industry ally currently helping to bankroll millions in television commercials in favor of Mr. Obama’s reforms.
The pressure from Mr. Tauzin to affirm the deal offers a window on the secretive and potentially risky game the Obama administration has played as it tries to line up support from industry groups typically hostile to government health care initiatives, even as their lobbyists pushed to influence the health measure for their benefit.
Notice now many Police Chiefs resigning lately, people in high positions within our Gov resigning, the same within our military and it's all because they don't want anything to do with whats coming. They morally and ethically don't agree with the changes as military moves in so they want to take care of their own.
