      Stuart Butler:

      The spending doesn't start for the first 3 years. When in full force the first 10 years could cost 2.4 trillion

      Mr. Butler didn't finish the sentence. You will start paying taxes for the Government Run Health Care in 2010.

    2. J.C. Hughes, Texas says:

      I'll share my message sent to a friend regarding this whole damned healthcare scheme.

      "Apparently this [liberal] congress doesn’t care about the American worker, the nation’s economy or the U.S. Constitution. Lord knows the current congressional leadership and administration are pushing their politburo agenda down the throat of the entire nation. It’s an absolute affront to the sovereign rights of individual states to control their own economic and social issues. I’ve often said that this manufactured need for a federal take over of healthcare is a perfect case for the U.S. Supreme Court."

      My point is that two of the three federal powers are on a destructive course of legislative and regulatory overreach with out-of-control spending. Much like how they're handling defense. It's not about our nation's security but rather their radical leftist, I believe unconstitutional, political agenda.

      Why isn't anyone discussing the enormous negative impact this bill will have on our freedom, the amount of individual taxes that will be imposed and the fact that portions of it wouldn't be allowed if they were following the basics of the Constitutional?

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
