Good I hope the
FED does go bankrupt

The FED is not WE, but they are causing most of our problems.

I've seen a few replies that say it wouldn't be a good thing if our government went bankrupt, because that will be the time that we join the UN/NWO, and that would in turn be the start of the mass genocide/depopulation. The FED is not even our government, the FED is the Hijacker of our government, If we let it die peacefully, WE THE PEOPLE might be able to take our power back. The sooner the better

You know what this says to me?
That Obama is getting nervous, he realizes that he is losing the full support of the American public, he's losing his democrats since they realize that 2010 elections are not going to go well if things continue and all they really care about is their job, and that he apparently is no better at healthcare reform than Bill Clinton.

Look -- the only time a President pushes threats onto the American public is around the same time we need to get out our shovels.

Clinton did it when he got caught with Lewinsky (if I get impeached, blah, blah, blah), Bush did it with Iraq (if we don't attack now, blah blah blah), Obama did it with his stimulus plan, auto plan (if we don't do this now blah blah blah).

Threats come out when fear gets raised. I say we are making progress. Fight on!

Healthcare? its real it has to be paid for somehow? the reason most americans hate the idea of a single payer system is idiots on cable networks saying.


No, Americans oppose a single payer system because the government is inept and can't run anything efficiently.
Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, The Post Office, all run by the Federal government and all dead BROKE! Why would we want to put our health care in their hands? Also about 80% of Americans are happy with the health insurance they have. I pay about $290 per month for a family of 3 and I get fast quality health care so why would I want to change?

Spending does need to be cut but it's more likely they will just try to raise taxes or have more people pay into the system. The health care plans are one way of doing this and carbon tax another. None of this addresses the core problem of the government spending more and more every year and being addicted to debt.

Oh wait, I'm in the Political Madness forum?
OH, yes, I see I am.
Wrong thread.

The country will definitely go bankrupt if healthcare reform is passed. The stimulus package and TARP have already put us in deep financial doo-doo. We are already broke, as a nation. Would you run your financial household this way?

Great news! Why bother to revolt when we can just let the Government go Bankrupt!

Think about the liquidation sale!

When this government goes belly up lets go with a small unintrusive one the next time around ok folks?

Pretty please!

Hey, if you want to believe the fear mongering and think this will stop our nation's economic problems, feel free. But please don't try to get me to believe it. We're already doomed financially. You can't really believe passing this bill will save us.

More C-span?

Again, you're still getting me confused with someone who is opposed to universal health care when I already told you I am for it. I'm just not into FEAR MONGERING or LYING to the people by saying this bill is the only way we can be saved. That's a lie.

Riiight...and when your Socialized medicine doesn't cover certain procedures, or even drugs people from Socialized countries come to the U.S. to get operations, and drugs they can't get in Socialized medicine...

You know... i kind of LOVE the irony from some Europeans who claim "you will only become civilized once you have Socialized healthcare" yet several of these countries still have kings, and queens as if they were still in the Medieval ages.... not to mention that soccer events look more like "public gladiator day", starting fights just because their team lost, or just because they start insulting each other, and sometimes just for the heck of it........ Very "civilized"......

I am almost absolutely certain that there are probably at least some European members who have participated in some "public gladiator day"...

When i lived in Europe the only times I had to fight, and sometimes i had to run, was to fight off drug addicts trying to rob me.

I tried the European Socialized healthcare for almost 10 years, I'll still choose, and keep the one in the U.S.

Thank you Ashley, let's hope there are enough Americans with a clear head to see this for what it really is.

Adding millions to health care will save the American economy, it is a fact.
The human capital will be better off at putting there income into more profitable gains then having to pay out the nose for private health care.

So, let me get this straight. obama The Destroyer first side hurry up and pass the stimulus bill or it'll be the end of the world don't read it, there's not enough time, just sign it. That went well, were deeper in debet the ever unemployment's still in the 10% range. Now we get We must spend millions/ billions ect to shove national health care down everones throats even though most Americans don't want it, but WE HAVE TO DO IT! or and so on. I think he wrote the fear sellers book.
Now, will I get in trouble if I ask why he's dead set on destroying this country from the inside out? Because it sure looks that way from where I'm setting.

More like, Fed Gov will go bankrupt if we do not vote out those who were elected in the last election.

Just my .02 worth. Like it or not.

He says what he is told to say. The Sith Lords are playing "good guy" "bad guy", "go hate this one", "no the other one". Their plan : remain in control, even if oil and other resources will get a lot more expensive - search peak oil. Also there are too many of us - so they plan to "thin the herd".

Can anyone tell me what exactly is wrong with a national health care system and why does everyone in the U.S have so much fear of passing the bill. The majority of countries in Europe have had the system for many years and nobodys crying about it..its simply a guarante that (maybe) less people will die of their illnesses because there not fortunate enough to work or have private medi care. So the goverment has to spend day all those who have medi care now might loose their jobs, or have no money and glad they´ll be that the USA has finally done something to benefit the many and NOT the few as is so common nowadays.

Yet you pay insurance companies for heathcare?

you PAY them not the goverment "they set the price" not the goverment.

Call me stupid but you are BROKE and paying insurance companies all this money aint helping

I love my socialised heathcare

But, you don't get it. This will not bring us healthcare that is like any other nation, it is only to force *everyone* to pay for insurance! If you do not, you could go to prison!

The only difference is, our greedy government sees private health insurance companies allegedly making all this money, so they only want to open their own store, and run the others out of business.

I cannot believe people still parrot these "I love my socialized healthcare" lines, when it is nothing even CLOSE to what they are trying to pass here.

Not only are we going to still have to carry insurance at high premiums, we will have to fork out a lot in taxes to pay for those who cannot afford to.

Above and beyond what we already pay!

And also, no one ever mentions that Medicare is broke because the government steals money from it to pay for their pork barrel projects!

They have been dipping into the funds for a LONG time, and with no intention or attempt to ever pay it BACK.

I wish more people would reply to these types of flines.

This isn't about a national healthcare system, it is about a goverment run health insurance company that many feel will ration care and show faovritism towards younger people.

This is so not like European or Canadaian healthcare, and most people are very confused in that belief.

It is apples and oranges.

Yeah right, the new goverment is called China. They own us.

Just as soon as we announce the US is bankrupt, it is all over but the eviction notice.
