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"......

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.

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 money...so what..one 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.

What more do you require to make you think that this overhaul isn't all it's cracked up to be?
