    Can you imagine how bad the budget would look if it DID include Obama’s vision of reform?

    oh you musta missed that part, Hooray.

    “Administration budget officials, speaking on background, said while the health budget does not include specific health reform spending, it overall includes $150 billion in anticipated net savings over 10 years from the overhaul.”

    I’m LOLing, are you LOLing?

    Budget assumes passage of Cap and Trade. If this happens everyones power bill will “skyrocket” Obama’s words not mine.

    Is he really that arrogant as to not learn anything from the MA election. We dont want our country to spend money it does not have, nor do we want to raise taxes on anyone, rich or poor.

    This is the land of opportunity not entitlement!

    How did I miss it…he included the credits, but not the debits!!!!!!!!!!!

    You know, each time I see a photo of him signing something, I wonder if he isn’t actually merely learning to write cursive.

    He learned that he’s a sore loser…..and he made that loud and clear in the SOTU and the budget.

    He will be DAMNED if he will be derailed by the opinion of the American people!

    He’s the Harvard grad, remember????? We’re all stupid!

    The best healthcare reform is more jobs and a greater tax liability reduction for those employers that provide healthcare coverage coupled with no coverage for illegal residents and aliens.

    I recently heard one of the pundits say the following about the Obama administrations spending habits…’they spend like drunken sailors, the difference is that drunken sailors can’t spend what they don’t have.

    As Sarah palin said, This is lipstick on a pig! Just wait until Harry and Nancy get their hands on our checkbook this year. All I can say is spend it before November because Harry will be saying “Welcome to Wallmart, can I help you?” or maybe he could bell hop at one of the casinos in Las Vegas. Nancy’s face might crack when she loses her speaker of the House spot. I cant wait!

    Asside from diluting down the current generic drugs, how else could a generic drug be made cheaper? Sounds like population control to me.

    Sad to say my six year old granddaughter has more smarts and common sense than Obama and his cronies. Those that voted for Obama got exactly what they deserved, the only thing is they dragged us down with them. Liberals and tax cuts (like oil and vinegar) don’t mix.

    Does “anticipated net savings” actually translate in Obamaese to “Credit Swaps”?

    Interesting how they excluded the liabilities from Fannie and Freddie. Gee that couldn’t be intentional could it?

    I tried to help you folks’ out on several recent topics dealing with healtcare, but it appears you’d rather just sit around and b…h about people trying to fix problems. As thousands die without access to healtcare in this country, millions struggling to pay needlessly high premiums to support our inefficent system run by big insurance, you just enjoy feeding with the greedy. Just hope you never end up on the other side where you need coverage but either can’t get it or afford it. Bye, bye!!

    Luckily, we have an infrastructure to take care of the thousands (?) dying from an absence of health care. Its called Medicaid, and we don’t need Broke Obama to help us with it. Lets just vote state by state on whether we want to pay for those IN OUR STATE who are uninsured, and uninsurable. No need to blackmail Nebraskans or Louisianians. We can decided state by state.

    Well, I disagree that we (those who oppose Obama and congress’s health insurance reform) about complaining about people “trying to fix problems”. We see it as causing more problems then it would fix. Yes, it is horrible that some people can not afford health insurance. But what about the people that don’t WANT to have health insurance? What about their right to spend their own money how they see fit? Personally, I do have health insurance, and plan to keep it as long as possible. The people that are against this bill aren’t just hte “part of no”, they have a plan. Tort reform would be a big help on lowering the cost of health CARE. When the cost fo care is lowered, the cost of the insurance lowers as well. My biggest issues I have with the health insurance reform is

    1. It doesn’t seem econmoicly fesible
    2. It doesn’t address the cause of high health insurance rates (high cost of health care). It treats the symptoms and not the cause.

    If they can address these issues, then we can talk. I do have a question though. Obama keeps saying that if we insure everyone, health insurance rates will go down. My question is “how?”. If you do not address WHY health care costs so much, how can you then lower it?

    What the MA election shows us is that a guy who voted FOR a similar state program that got passed and then took the oposite view and used Obama’s plan as a mechanism to score populist polical points just to get elected, shows just how stupid the people of MA really are. How many of those people will deny those benefits when it comes time to collect? I wonder how many of the geniuses who post reactionary messages here have really had to make a tough decision between going broke and staying alive. Nobody in this country should go broke or worse just because they are sick. This whole debate really shows where we are as a country. “I have my benefits, so to hell with everyone else!” If any of you have any balls you will refuse your medicare and social security benefits when it comes time to collect. For all the FOX News (suposedly christian) nut jobs ask yourself: “What would Jesus do?”

    Helloooo….? What newspapers have you been reading? There have been NO tax increases since Obama has been elected. There actually have been tax DECREASES for lower income earners. Remember what the guy inherited when he got here. Who has he dragged down? And where has he dragged anyone down to?? It was a mess when he got here and it does not get turned around in a year.

    Geez David, I guess you BELIEVED Obama when he told you he gave those people tax cuts. What he gave them was “mandatory automatic reduction in witholdings to give the appearance of tax cuts”!!!! That’s how stupid his supporters are…they don’t get that there’s a difference between a true tax cut/reduction in tax liability and a reduction in witholdings!!! Just because you withold less, doesn’t mean you don’t owe it at the end of the year! They didn’t get a tax cut, and you should think for yourself!!!!!!!!!

    Read your history. The party of NO said basically the same thing about Medicare. But, the quality of life has improved for many of those protected by Medicare. So, will you be refusing your medicare to stay with your shallow principles? One more thing, the party of NO practically killed medicare with their Part D. legislation in 2003 which was never funded by anything but deficit spending…and the government is not able to leverage their purchasing power to keep drug costs down.
