Comments on: Healthcare vote: Obama says courageous, Palin says mess Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bob Thu, 12 Nov 2009 22:46:33 +0000 “It is a mess and will be very destructive to America. Instead of being able to go to your doctor freely to discuss your health care options, under government controlled health care you will have to wait to find out if you are qualified….”

Harold, I’m researching H.R. 3962 and I can’t find anything that supports your claims, in the bill. Where did you get this information?

“jimsepa. Stop. Obama did not finish more than a few months in the US Senate before he ran for president. He didn’t accomplish anything for the people who elected him”

First, I am sure it was an accident, but please do not sign my name (jimsepa) to your post.

Second, and as usual, you don’t address my criticism of a previous post, but go off on a tangent. Please read my post carefully. The previous post claims Palin fulfilled her promises. That is simply not true. I didn’t mention anything about the length of time in office or comment on her accomplishments. She did not fulfill her promise to the Alaskan people, plain and simple. It doesn’t matter how much she accomplished. She did not fulfill her promise to the people who elected her.

Third, you are correct. I am afraid, no terrified, of Palin. She is the epitomy of all that is wrong with the Republican Party. And, before you jump down my throat with partisan junk, I was a Republican at one time. She and the far right have high-jacked the Republican Party and ignore mainstream America. While she might represent your views and a small fringe minority, she surely does not represent mine.

By: Realistic Mon, 09 Nov 2009 16:39:03 +0000 The truth is that most people are scared of change. How can we continue to allow insurance companies to fix prices, deny coverage if you become sick and drop you if you become sick? If this healthcare bill fails, the insurance companies will become so powerful that they will drop you for a eye twitch. If this bill fails, no one would ever be able to stop insurance companies from doing anything they want. Who else would ever take on the insurance industry again?

This idea that Obama says this, Palin says that, the heck with that, we all have our opinions..that’s what living in this great Nation does for us. The real issue here, is the proposed idea that Government can get involved in running some element of our life…again. The Government is involved enough in our daily lives and their decisions to get involved in our health care is way over the top. Compare the polls…America does NOT want this healh care bill, but together, we Americans can correct this health care problem. I suggest we start working together to correct the real problem, bi-partison and corrupt politicians. In the next election, vote for somebody who is like you, not an elitist, not corrupt, but a true American. Lets work together to get past the partisanship America and take back our Government!

By: Jamaal Ako Mon, 09 Nov 2009 12:20:35 +0000 Hold on tight America, American destruction from our Founding Fathers envision to a socialist state is getting stronger. What Canadians, British have been warning American’s are becoming reality sooner than expected because of this healthcare scam. Total government control and minipulation will kill the free enterprise the free American society used to have. May God have mercy, if it is now check it now a year from now, higher inflation, unemployment, long line waiting for medical check up, higher taxes special favor for special interest group. Buy GE stock because it will have more than double each value now! We shall be called the United Communist State of America. America, WAKE UP!!!

By: jimsepa Mon, 09 Nov 2009 02:07:52 +0000 jimsepa. Stop. Obama did not finish more than a few months in the US Senate before he ran for president. He didn’t accomplish anything for the people who elected him.

Go ahead and personally attack Sarah Palin. You don’t even talk about the issues important to you. I know why, you have nothing rational to say about your issues, so you divert from your irrational issues to personally attack someone like Sarah Palin because you are afraid of her.

So predictable of the far left…

By: Laz Mon, 09 Nov 2009 01:25:42 +0000 You know, we are only legitimizing a political nobody by mentioning her name every time she trips in her own tongue.
The real problem with this vote is that we are back to an America that is divided almost equally between two diametrically opposing, irreconcilable concepts about the future of the country.
And as long as that remains the case it will almost not make any difference who is in the White House. Uh, I said ALMOST! :]

By: Anon Mon, 09 Nov 2009 01:10:10 +0000 Well, the die is cast now.

Obama and the Democrats have locked themselves to this healthcare reform. They must now pass it, and bring it into operation.

If they fail to bring it into operation, or the plan itself falls apart once in operation, the Democrats will receive all of the political backlash. If so, their chances of being re-elected would be comical.

I feel that the Democrats will delay the plan for a few years, and only bring it into operation at the end of Obama’s first term. The political version of a bunt.

That way Obama has at least a chance to be elected. He will be able to claim he achieved something, while the actual success or failure of the healthcare plan will only become visible during the second term. By then, of course, he will already be re-elected.

By: jimsepa Mon, 09 Nov 2009 00:57:03 +0000 “…is on record as saying that palin had accomplished all the goals she’d had promised…”

dennisintn: What a joke. All goals accomplished, as promised? How about finishing her term as governor? This wasn’t only a promise to the people of Alaska, but her obligation as an elected official. This type of blind support of an unqualified public service just diminishes her and her supporter’s credibility.
