    I don't have a good thesis on how to enact such a change. But I do suspect that healthcare will eventually have an IT-like transformation, and I'm happy to put the bug into people's ear* on speeding the process.

    *this expression is entirely inappropriate, due to the fact that I'm using the written medium and not the spoken one. And because I'm talking about healthcare

    Some of us have been harping on health care costs around here for a few years now. Congress clearly did not get the memo. I don't know how to beat Congress into doing the job right when their goal is to do nothing at all.

    unintentionally hilarious from a guy who is about to bore everyone with the same old banal, Broderist, pundit crap about how "Washington isn't listening" and "Democrats have to not be so Democrat n liberal, yknow?"

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmhm

    also you continue to stupidly imply that the fringe-party voting behaviors of a few thousand people says something about the political views of the other millions of voters, rather than say the differing propensities of crazies on either side to go fringe-party.

    probably the most annoying thing about your posts is you continue to repeat the same wrong ideas even after several different posters fix your errors. second most annoying thing is your seeming obliviousness to how banal your ideas are. "I'm going to TELL YOU exactly how the Democrats can regain power and hold it!!!!" as if you're not just regurgitating what is basically a standard TV news pundit attitude towards politics.

    The White House is also telling liberals "Hey, we got this" on DADT and they told us the same thing about healthcare.

    This President is just like the last one in that he's always telling us that victory is just around the corner and what's important is that freedom is on the march.

    The major difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties dates back to the riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. After those fateful events, the Democrats decided they could no longer be openly immoral and corrupt. That they must be governed by a sense of ethics which should transcend any political cause.


    Link to video.

    And from that day on, they have been relatively easy prey to the Republicans who swore no such oath.

    Abolish healthcare altogether. Put evolution back in action. Survival of the fittest I say.

    No,
    Communist revolution is ********. It tries to make everyone equal. All humans are not equal. Some are just better, more talented, etc than others. The whole concept of communism is fail at its core.

    Odd, considering Communism does not say all humans are equal. Even more odd when some, like Lassalle, advocate for Socialism specificaly because we are not all equal.

    You know President Obama is pretty weak as a leader especially when I think of what a strong and excellent leader former President Bartlet was.

    Are the current dividend and capital gains tax rates going to continue as well?

    You should be more focused on how screwed America will be with a Republican House AND Senate in 2 years and either a Republican President or a President who doesn't have the guts to veto bad Republican bills.

    The democrats controlled it for 2 years and didn't do anything.

    As opposed to the Republicans, who make everything worse at every chance.

    On the bright side, they can't really do anything worse than inaction (which could in cases be pretty horrendous, I guess). It's not like they'll be able to push through a whole swathe of radical policy.

    Only for now. If the get the Senate and presidency in 2012, they'll once again set out to destroy America. And do a lot of damage in the process.

    Rofl. Tell me Cutlass, what is gained by such obviously false propaganda? It seems about all you can say, 24/7. I am sure you can do better than the 'oh yeah? Well the GOP sucks moar!!' regurgitation you display here.

    Neither party is perfect. Far from it. But isnt it time we give the opposition a little bit of appreciation as opposed to the 'neener neener, no your worse!!' rhetoric??

    And people wonder why this nation is so divided. :rolleyes:
