The main topic for discussion should be how to get millions of jobs available
for workers so taxes will start coming and the rest can be dealt with in a year
I am willing to give the republicans a chance. They have the initiative and the
floor now. Lets see what they really are proposing other than trying to take
responsibility for poor medical practices away from insurers and hospitals in
the form of Tort reform. But beyond doing what they did before such as taking
the right of states to cut their own discount contracts with drug suppliers
away, passing drug coverage without a way to pay for it, I don't see any real
solutions coming from this tea party pandering crowd. I hope I am
surprised, and they truly come up with creative ideas. I really really do.
Unlike them, I don't hope the country fails on their watch like they prayed for
on Obama's watch. The right answer is far more important than which party came
up with it. But so long as they operate on the notion of
bipartisanship only on their terms, that exact thing they accused the demos of
doing, I expect little more that Wall street control of government returning the
status quo. I am fully confident Republicans are truly to cowardly
to do the right thing.
Why do "Americans feel very uncomfortable with the new health care bill?"
Because nobody read it! Because "we have to pass it to find out whats in
it!"UtahbluedevilThe conservatives didn't want the country to
fail, they wanted Obama to fail in his object to make the country fail! The
only ideas I want to hear from our representatives is curbing spending and no
new taxes. Spending is the problem! I hope the new congress is part of the
solution. Obama will not work with the other side, because he has such a
distain and hatred for all things free-market.Give employers
confidence to hire people and expand. Then watch the economy turn around.
From the article:First target: Democrats' signature health
care law."This was a huge, huge issue in the election last Tuesday,"
said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. "A vast majority of Americans
feel very, very uncomfortable with this new bill. People who supported us,
political independents, want it repealed and replaced with something else. I
think we owe it to them to try."=============No, no. No. The 'vast majority' feels 'very, very uncomfortable' with the
ECONOMY. The 'vast majority' feels 'very, very frustrated' and are lashing out
at who's in charge now. And now, they're looking to the new majority in the
House to finally fix things because Obama hasn't gotten it done it fast enough.
But the Repubs have no viable answers. "Cut spending!" "Cut
taxes!" No, not viable answers. So, they are going to spend the next 2 years
nitpicking away at evil 'Obamacare'. That's allll they got.
It should be more important for both sides to find common ground than just fight
over how to make the other side look bad for the next election. We should be
looking at who is able to work with the other side.
What not to do to get out of a recession: 1) increase spending, and 2) increase
taxes. I sure hope the Republicans will listen to their citizens are push for
tax breaks, so we can get some money flowing through the economy. The current
practice of buying more and more debt obviously isn't working.What
not to do to make healthcare more efficient: 1) throw more money into the
existing system, and 2) drastically increase money for medical research, which
has direct effect of raising our medical costs. I'm looking forward to
healthcare REFORM that we can afford, while making healthcare available to all.
Republicans, please look into medical waste rather than trying to make our
insurance industry the bad guy. And lets find a way for foreign countries to
pay for what they get from the U.S. in terms of medical innovation!
The Republicans have no interest in reform or to change anything from the status
quo. Maybe the reform bill fell short, but the GOP did nothing to improve it or
offer any ideas of their own. There is a lot of good in the bill, stuff we
really need. The GOP would rather gut it than help Americans facing a serious
problem that is only getting worse.
They all have their health insurance tied up. Why would they possible acare
about anyone else?
