The CBO said the Senate bill would extend coverage to more than 30 million Americans who lack it. It also imposes new regulations to curb abuses of the insurance industry, and the president noted one last-minute addition would impose penalties on companies that "arbitrarily jack up prices" in advance of the legislation taking effect.
CBO analysts also said the legislation would cut federal deficits by $132 billion over 10 years and possibly much more in the subsequent decade.
At its core, the legislation would create a new insurance exchange where consumers could shop for affordable coverage that complied with new federal guidelines. Most Americans would be required to purchase insurance, with federal subsidies available to help defray the cost for lower and middle income individuals and families.
Great- you must be one of the losers that I will be subsidizing. This whole plan would make Robin Hood proud. Rob from the rich and give the poor- aka- losers, drug addicts, criminals lazy sloths, undecated welfare recipients and lets not forget about our 20 million illegal amigos. Don't think for a minute the bleeding heart liberals won't find a way to cover our produce pickers.
"Casey is absolutely correct. It is game over for America the way the Founding Fathers intended it to be.
From the admonitions of Thomas Jefferson warning us not to let our financial system be run by private banksters to the freedom fighters railing against the I.R.S. and the Federal Reserve and the creeping horror of Fabian Socialism, the Dream that was America is dead.
We few freedom lovers have been burned from both sides of the political candle. On the one end we have let the quasi-libertarian Republicorporists woo us into thinking that if we totally de-regulate that would be the path to Utopia. However, they keep forgetting we are fallen beings and too much freedom in the hands of the corrupt will produce a backlash which will bring us the other end of the burning candle which is.......
Demosocialists..... who at the behest of the hurt and downtrodden masses of the mess brought about by imprudent deregulation call for subjugation of all by government.
As I have said before.....look back at history and most of our severe recession and depressions came about after Republican administrations dismantled regulations and turned a blind eye to rampant greed and malfescense by the capitalist captains which in turned caused a political backlash when everything went south thus bringing a Democrat Administration which wrote onerous laws and regulations which have never been repealed which insures our future subjugation and bankruptcy.
Or as I have also said......When you let Republicans rule they sleep with the Wall Street Whores which gives us all the Sexually Transmitted Disease of socialism via the Democrats.
And where now can I go for a new birth of freedom like my Mayflower ancestors?"
