stoli n coke: thurstonxhowell: I sound fat: without reading, let me guess...

They dont like the parts of it that pay for it, while they like the parts that spend money?

The GOP staked out that position years ago.


What position? Not reading?


Well, technically, it's called "home schooling," but yeah, that position.

Gulper Eel: Philip Francis Queeg: Yes., putting your health entirely in the care of anonymous, unaccountable corporate bureaucrats who's only concern is spending as little money on you as possible is unquestionably the smart choice. Like you I want the major corporations to have as much power as possible, without restraint form the elected government. Like you I'd like to see food stamps ended and the poor left to be cared for by the overwhelming generosity of companies like McDonalds and Kraft. Only then will we be free and healthy.

And you can say precisely the same about anonymous, unaccountable (except to the bosses) political bureaucrats.

I'm not carrying any water for the Krafts and McDonald's of the world. That should be clear, but you seemed to have misssed my point so let me make it clearer: they AND Congress have a shared interest in the increasing size, cost and complexity of the federal government.

As for the poor, I would indeed gut the food-stamp program - to replace it with a state-by-state food program funded by block grants.


Damn all this complexity!!!

...but adding another layer of bureaucrats will fix it.

It is like the beginning of a Kurt Vonnegut book where he describes a fisherman that caught a whale so big that he couldn't fit it on the boat.  Instead of butchering it at sea and taking only the important parts the sailor decided to try and tow the whole thing into shore.  When he got there he realized that the sharks had picked the entire thing bone dry.   It's like that but with greedy corporations and peoples lives instead.

We had thousands of pages of government run granny-killin' to shove down the country's throat. It was bound to get a little messy.

MacWizard: This will be fun. Everything the Dems decide is stupid will instantly become the only provisions that are important to the Republicans.


if Obama came out demanding its repeal, they'd be falling all over themselves defending it.

Honestly, I could see him doing that for the lulz.

Yea, that's what happens when you water something down to get it to pass Congress rather than just go single payer
