The healthcare issue is an example of how mass stupidity and conservative fear of change lies down in the path of progress. Oh it's so awful that poor
people will not die from not being able to afford proper healthcare anymore.
I ask for some detailed info on just how the HC legislation will benefit the majority of citizens.

Poor people can easily obtain Medicaid in all States.
Public assistance provides benefits for the poor.
If poor people are "poor", how can they afford the already increasing HC rates ?
The HC "reform" may actually increase the Medicaid enrollments.
Who pays for all that?
Please explain how a bankrupt nation can demand that citizens fund continuing legislation that adds to the debt. People already owe a debt that
by $140 per week per citizen.
How would Obama propose to balance that debt? I don't recall any statements to address THAT !
General statements and wild theories don't solve the problem.
The toys come out of the pram when all the selfish republicans and greedy upper class realised they would have to pay for this with tax increases.
So why did the 111th Congress not raise taxes on the "rich" when they had the chance.
They always add extra side legislation to bills.
Why was a tax increase on the "rich" not added to the HC bill ?
I never heard Obama insist on that during the HC debates.
Nor did I hear Pelosi or Reid insist on it either.
They bring it up after the House lost a Dem majority, making it near impossible now.
Makes people wonder who's side Obama and Co. are really on.
Could it be that the politicians have passed laws that will benefit the "rich" in the long run while not helping the Majority of citizens at all ?
Insurance companies and medical corporations are the only ones that will recieve "added" benefits.
All in the form of money.
