That's not even on the table though for the Dems....if you recall the republicans were willing to do just that the last time, but then the media said they were holding the poor hostage
Well I'm not interested in the media. IMO we need both, eradication of these never funded tax cuts as well as major cuts in spending across the board. That means defense as well. We can't pay our bills, haven't been able to pay our own bills for decades, and the gig is up.
No you don't...why was Ron Paul able to balance the budget with his plan that he released in 4 years without a tax increase then??
Did he get elected? I like Ron Paul and wished he'd been invited to debates and been treated as a viable candidate for POTUS but he never was and his running for POTUS in the past or future has no chance without true political reform.
Not only did I watch the thing...I actually have worked in the healthcare sector..but I'm sure you know more
Then you saw bs software triggering tests and costs that the Dr's did not agree with. If you are going to defend that Pro Med software and call it legit then I'm just going to laugh at you. They've already removed it now and are under investigation. Doctors need to make these decisions not software coded in such a fashion to get more money.
BTW, I actually work in healthcare right now but I'm sure you know more than I do
Are we going to get into a HIPAA discussion now?
1) If the rich leave, who is going to pay for cell phones for the poor?
2) Why should anyone have to GTFO of a country for wanting to live the way the consitution states. It is those that want to change to a socialist country that need to go elsewhere. A country founded on socialism that wants socialism.
Then why did you state it in the first place then? Because some of us want some things to change you stated we should move to socialist countries in Western Europe?
I was just giving you back your own advice. If you hate it so much and bitch about it so much the plane and boats are there, buy a ticket. Healthcare reform needs to happen. I don't have all the answers, I just know leaving the costs unchecked we are heading into a massive problem. When people start selling their homes, quit spending money, all to pay for ballooned healthcare costs, what do you think that will do to our economy?
So in summation I've said that we are in massive debt as a country and that we need to remove these tax cuts that weren't thought out too well. That means a bipartisan failure has occurred. Bush shouldn't have signed them in, and Obama and Congress should not have allowed them to continue. I've also said we need healthcare reform in a big way. After stating as much you've deemed my comments "socialism".
This is exactly why there is so much polarization in the country now and why nothing is changing for the better.
