If simple addition was used in America we would not have billions in bail-outs and trillions in debt!
I wonder what will happen to health insurance in this country, when the repubs free markets take over the government. Would this means rape session is in play for the American people. Hey this is what blind racial rage will give you in the long run. Mitten once had this same policies for massachussette which did Massachusetts good. Now he's pondering to the right winger and will be destroying probably the only sensible healthcare program in decade. What will we fall back on when mitten, if elected do away with the policy. Would this put insurance companies and their greed back in charge. I wonder if they do the American people, the way the free enterprise oil companies are currently doing to us with high gas prices. Maybe they'll just insure who can afford what they can and just out the rest of the American people out to pasture. COME ON FOLKS, HOW GULLIBLE CAN YOU GET!!!
In such a great country as America health care should be a right not a privilege.
No republicans in 2012.
Look like all four are PRAYING for help
Hey, Ron Paul supporters. Where is Dr. Paul? Once again your champion is not in the limelight, and so once again there will be no news articles about him, at least not today.

That's not so hard to figure out. The cost of health insurance and health care will resume their upward spiral with renewed vigor. This will occur because more people than ever before are without health care and the paying customers will be burdened with the cost of providing care for the non-paying customers who do not pay their fair share.
