Kucinich has changed my mind and I now support the Health Care Bill even considering how much I dislike it.

@dyslexia,
As one whose entire prescription plan has been overturned by my insurance company at the very time that their new policy was to take effect, Im feeling very vulnerable to insurance company shenanigans with the system as it is NOW

@dyslexia,
You're not the only one. The reason the Republicans are so against this bill is they know people will like it.

@dyslexia,
I've quit talking about it here, because it pisses me off too much.

my take on it is that we have to pass something. anything.

not that it's going to really do anything.

but if they can completely stymie change now, it will only get worse in a hurry.

It will not be the best possible bill, but you have to start somewhere. I am for it.

The public option is a big ommission. May it can be added later.

This terrible bill will probably pass, but will face constitutional challenges, I'm sure. The constitutional challenge may or may not pass, but we need not rely on that. Republicans still have the option of repealing the bill after Obama is kicked out of office in 2012. The repeal may be disfavored by the public, but the Democrats have just given Repubs lessons in how to ram unpopular bills through Congress.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

@slkshock7,
Eight years of Republicans doing whatever they pleased was tough to swallow. It's good to have the Democrats in charge for a while.

@edgarblythe,
I don't remember those 8 years...to best of my knowledge, Repubs have never had the votes in Congress to do what the Dems are attempting. It's all good though, because I'm very confident everything will reverse substantially in Nov. And by 2012, if the Dems continue to self-immolate in order to protect the legacy of their god, Obama, Repubs may well have that filibuster-proof majority to do whatever they please. And even if that doesn't happen, the Dems are in the processing of instituting a simple-majority process by which Repubs may soon be able to pass many of their own long-held political dreams.

Yeah, those Republicans were so pure and clean and never did anything unless the democrats said it was okay. And they haven't been complete obstructionists ever since Obama was elected.

******* moron.

The way it's supposed to work, you should have changed his mind.

@dyslexia,
Kucinich is obviously hoping a public option can be added on.

My father was a very wealthy man before he had to deal with the American healthcare system and insurance companies. After a decade of poor health they have kept him alive but have sucked up almost all his retirement funds. Now his insurance company has sent him a letter telling him his rates are going up 28%.

@maporsche,
Define "pretty unpopular". I know Fox news doesn't like it, but I don't think that counts.

The speaker of the House intends to overthrow the Constitution tomorrow to get this passed.

No more need to vote; she will "deem" passed or rejected whatever she wants.

I'll be amazed if it passes. I'll be even more amazed if it ultimately benefits the country more than it harms it. It's all too complicated for me to understand. But I will try to hope that it's more of a benefit than a curse.

@ebrown p,
I have no idea what fox news says.

But I know polls range from 50-65% support. Regardless, if 35-50% of people don't support it; it has pretty high unpopularity.
