    Are you kidding me?

    Everything the federal government touches, it ruins:

    - Amtrak: broke
    - US Post Office: broke
    - Social Security: broke
    - Medicaid: broke
    - Medicare: broke
    - Federal military: broke
    - Federal tax laws: broke
    - Fannie Mae: broke
    - Freddie Mac: broke

    And if that's not enough...

    - Federal budget: NON-EXISTENT
    - Federal coffers: broke, to the tune of almost a $17 TRILLION deficit (that's 17,000 billions, folks)

    You simply cannot add 30 MILLION patients with no increase in doctors and NOT have a loss of overall healthcare quality.

    Sadly, Gov. Herbert dislays that he is "broke" in terms of wisdom, too. We don't need to look at what's best for our party, we need to look at what's best for AMERICA. It's the "what is best for me" attitude that put us in this mess.

    Oh, hard times are a comin'.....

    The gov is right. If Lee is the future of the GOP, the party is in big trouble.

    Mr. Governor,

    What is more important, the party or the Country? Oh, that's right, to you it's the party. it's because of republicans like you, bennett, hatch, leavitt and others that I left the party years ago and became independent.

    You know what would be refreshing? If Lee decided to do something for Utah for once. The only bill he has really pushed so far was bank deregulation. Say what? The topic he used to chase Bennett out?

    I hope he is voted out, Lee does nothing but collect paychecks and do nothing for Utah. We voted him in and lost clout as the GOP took what we had and divvied it up to southern states.

    During the 90's I was a Republican. I supported the plan that is now Romneycare/Obamacare. Health insurance providers still make plenty of money and people are being covered who were not before. Preventive care is much cheaper than Medicaid ER and hospital stays.

    Instead of celebrating that the plan which Republicans came up with passed, they are fighting against it and it will harm Americans. Lee will benefit from this health plan as he tries to stop it with ZERO plan to replace it with anything.

    Why doesn't he have a plan to replace it? BECAUSE IT IS A REPUBLICAN PLAN. One of many reason I left the GOP.

    So the truth comes out.
    Stopping health care won't hurt AEMERICANs, only the GOP.
