    Would you like the next congress to overturn Medicare? How about social security? I don't know how old you are, or what your personal wealth or health may be, but I think in time you may rethink your opposition to this long overdue reform. This new health care law is far from perfect, but the problems have been around for a long long time, and grew much worse during the years of Republican control. But then, in the face of this, they did virtually nothing.

    The Republican Party has only itself to blame.The party now looks inept,immovable, uncaring, and bought and paid for by health insurance industry. I might also say, that some of the comments I have seen in this forum display a surprising callousness towards the plight of our less fortunate fellow citizens. What is that biblical phrase? "By their fruits ye shall know them"?

    So not only are we going to have major deficits to pay each Medicare recipient $250, all of our health insurance premiums are going to go up next year due to the mandates to insurance companies. These politicians don’t have a clue. But of course the “news” of these huge premiums won’t come out until after the November elections. And now the LAW is that federal dollars CAN pay for abortion, and if (when) Obama changes his mind, he can rescind the executive order with one swoop of his liberal pen. Very upsetting. I really hope a new congress can overturn this bill next January.
