Like a dog playing tug a war, they won't quit. Thank God. I'm all for helping those that can't help themselves, but this Health care Act is a abomination. It hurts more than helps.

The Republican led house has voted, for the 37th time, to repeal President Obama’s health care law, even though GOP lawmakers know the Senate will not follow suit.

Wish that actually meant something...

37th time just begins to loose the luster of hope (no not that kind of hope) - so guess this goes to the Senate to die again sometime next month then?

Unfortunately, The group of internationalist traitors inside the Senate will just shoot it down.

Oh and on another note, Subpoena Hillary Clinton over benghazi-Gate! ~$heopleNation

I'm cool with a typo.

They are still trying to repeal it though. That is what concerns me. Never give up the ship!

It's the Law and a lot of people need it.

The House is just wasting our money when they should be working on jobs.
If it was created by a Republican, there would be songs of praise everywhere.
It wasn't and since it would help people, we get this crap.

More political theater, and no jobs.

Why give up?
There are many freshmen politicians that voted for the first time.

This ObamaCare thing needs to repealed. Given the targeting of Tea Party groups by the IRS, ObamaCare will target patients based on their political affiliation.
Expect to see quick EZ patient forms for Dems while Repubs will be forced to jump through unnecessary hoops by filling out the super long forms before they will be allowed to seen by a Dr.

A lot of people need healthcare, yes. But that doesn't mean that this particular law was the best way to do it, especially with the way they rammed it through as quickly as possible. There were other ways suggested that were ignored because they came from republicans and the democrats didn't want to compromise. There were three or four other healthcare bills put forward at the same time as the one that ultimately became law, but they were ignored because they weren't the one Obama and Pelosi wanted. I read them all. This one wasn't the best one suggested.

That isn't how obtaining tax-exempt status is supposed to work either, but we see what has been happening there.

Grerat, someone who finally understands the bill. Let me pull up a chair so you can explain it to me. Because right now no one knows much about it. I am so glad we have found the 1 that understands!

hello

Some of you are unfamiliar with this article but here is a link.

www.heritage.org...


Back in 1989, the conservative group The heritage foundation gave us the same plan.

A true socialist would have ended the private interest and nationalized the entire program. Since the middle man (HMO) is still in the system, this is more in align with the reps then dems.


THE HERITAGE PLAN

The fundamental defects of the existing system and the serious flaws in most solutions to the problem of uninsurance has led The Heritage Foundatio n to propose a national health system based on very different foundations. Developed in detail in n new monograph, A National Health System forAmerica, the Heritage plan aims at achieving four related objectives: All citizens should be guaranteed universa l access to affordable health care. The inflationary pressures in the health industry should be brought under control.

Just in case you were really interested, several of us went through the bill looking for things that were allegedly in it back in 2009 before they passed it. It took about 30 minutes of searching (because apparently the new search feature is only useful if you remember the exact name of that four year old thread you're looking for), but my persistence has paid off. Behold, 19 pages of searching and quoting and analyzing. Some allegations were true, some were not. Quite a few things that people are just now getting up in arms about are things they'd have known years ago if more people would actually read the bills congress wants to get passed instead of relying on the news to tell them what's in it.

. . . GOP lawmakers know the Senate will not follow suit.
We need to go back to the original Constitution, which had Senate seats filled by the individual state's congress.
That way you had officers who represented the state rather than big corporations who were handing out campaign contributions.

. . . if you’re running for Senate. Candidates who won a seat in Congress’ upper chamber each raised an average of $10,476,451. That’s $14,351 per day.

Thank you for that fact, and the not too recent decoupling of the Senators.
Although term limits would also be beneficial-- most of the people up there
who are pushing a lot of legislation through sucessfully are failing for their
constituent's interests and benefitting others... for long stretches of time.
In reflection, I'd sure like to see some of these people's stock portfolios.
