    What is success to you?

    I don't want to pay more money, that isn't going to change no matter how long you have the program.

    In 10 years will they lower my taxes because its successful?

    Do you have even one example of that ever happening?

    You are going to cover everyone for less money than we spend now.

    lol
    We already spend more per capita than any other country, but not everyone is covered.

    Perhaps what you're really afraid of, as a Christian, is that you will loose your privileged place at the head of the line because if everyone has the same health insurance, you're just one of the peeps.

    Everyone isn't my responsibility, my responsibility is myself.

    If you want healthcare go out and get some, don't ask me to pay for it for you.

    I agree with the principle, but chances are the cost savings will be vastly over projected. It was with PPACA, and I doubt this will be the exception.

    That said, I would love to be proven wrong!

    There is no way to cover more people at less cost.

    That's just idiotic.

    Its like saying you will save more money by buying a second car.

    It's all about where our tax dollars are allocated.
    Regulate Corporate welfare would be a great start.
    Cut the Military budget.
    Democratic socialism baby!

    Neither of those or both combined would not cover the cost.

    You're kidding, right?
    Of course you are.

    Americans pay into a $95B yr corporate welfare system, I don't EVEN need to go into our overblown military expense.
    It may not 'cover' the cost, but it would GREATLY reduce it.

    Obamacare alone is going to cost us a trillion dollars over ten years.

    We don't spend that much on corporate welfare or the entire military.

    Now you want to increase healthcare spending and think that cutting those will pay for it?

    That is hilarious, you're not very good with math are you?

    Hahahahahaha!

    Add $95b times 10.
    While you're at it, add our $598b yr times 10.

    Where Is The Outrage Over Corporate Welfare?

    I'm guessing you have a hard time budgeting your allowance with the high cost of video games.
