so are you saying that the process in which it was done is ok with you? the buying of votes? the louisiana purchase? the cadillac tax (which is not gone, by the way) that is my problem with this whole thing..Obama promised us that this would be the administration of change...so far it's just been the same old game...nothing's changed...just different people doing it the same ol' way.
a better link: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/17/AR2009101701810.html
and another link to an article about the closed door meetings ...http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/17/AR2009101701810.html
The bill was debated in public...just not heard by anyone other than republicans...the democrats weren't listening...however, maybe they will listen in November. I had heard the same rumor about the comment made by Pelosi but have no clue if she really said it...I don't have time to sit here all day doing research for you Dusty, but I will give you this link to an article that sums up some of my issues with the problems in the newly signed Health care reform bill...sorry it's not from a liberal media outlet...I know that's more your speed.
Here's the link: http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/usnews/health-care/3207-on-safari-in-the-health-care-jungle
Insurance companies only run on a 2 to 3% profit margin...they are not the corporate greed hounds that they have been portrayed to be...I'm just saying. (even Michael Moore knows that)
Definitly needed to do something for our ailing health care system, just still not sure that this bill was the right way....no one read it and it was assembled via closed door meetings (without invitation to republicans) with the notion that it could be corrected at a later date. Had it been done with research and panels established to ensure that the common good was being met, then there would not be nearly as much hype or opposition. The intent is right, the process is questionable.
how about the boys and girl's club...they can always use donations to help kids!
here's a link to an exerpt of a documentary about the crack problem in one of our neighboring communities...Hamlet. I WILL WARN YOU THERE IS SOME VERY STRONG LANGUAGE:
they are every where...small towns...big towns...rural towns..urban towns. This is a national crisis...and because it deals with addiction, there are no simple solutions. Give the local LEOs a break and leave them to do their jobs. You complain that there are huge amounts of unlawful, "profiling" stops made by our local LEOs but then you complain that the crime rate for burglary is high. You can't have it both ways...
Thank you so much for sharing that article...what an interesting young man!
here's a direct link to the article: http://www2.journalnow.com/content/2010/mar/11/most-complete-freedom/
Please take your CAPS lock off...
like everyone else has said here...forget about BB and switch to NetFlix or RedBox
