    That's not always true. I had a 30,000 dollar operation on my spine and I had no insurance and the hospital's clinic paid for it. It didn't cost me a dime. There are plenty of safety nets already in place for people who don't have insurance. I have no idea where these crazy stories come from.
    Who paid for the bill?

    Republicans seem retarded from what I've seen - they just seem to be opposing everything Obama puts forward.

    And for people who say that he hasn't made a difference... really?

    Any Americans here please oblige me, why is there so much resentment towards Obama, is it because the unemployment rate is 2% higher than he predicted, this is surely the only logical reason. He's done nothing he hadn't already talked about in his campaign, so he spent a lot of cash to stabilise the banks which some dislike and he's pushing for an expensive healthcare reform, surely time will tell whether he chose right you can't pre-empt whether it will have been money well spent. The impatience with him just blows my mind. Was it merely down to the fact that no-one liked McCain, or what?

    "Republican Scott Brown has won a shock victory in the race for the US Senate seat in Massachusetts left vacant by Democrat Edward Kennedy's death.

    The result is a huge blow to President Barack Obama, whose healthcare reform programme is now in doubt. "

    Yes The end of the Obama Empire is soon

    Well don't discount the Stimulus Bill, because that made an obvious difference (to the extent that it introduced a $25 increase in some jobs).

    Plus the claims of "you lie" are BS: I doubt Obama won't pull begin to pull out in 2011, and I doubt he won't continue to pursue healthcare reform - on a wider scale if today's result has the impact it probably will - and likewise with climate change (which he has at least made inroads in, unlike most presidents who simply desire to do nothing).

    And Americans are thinking in short-term too much. Of course there will be an increase in taxes will Healthcare form, but how can Americans claim that there system in the best? There are still plenty of people who don't get treatment with privatisation.

    Obama has the intelligence, and the potential, to be the best president in decades. Americans need to think about what they want, rather than protesting to everything that approaches change.

    Read it

    “But instead of working toward the elimination of for-profit insurance, H.R. 3962 would put the government in the role of accelerating the privatization of health care. In H.R. 3962, the government is requiring at least 21 million Americans to buy private health insurance from the very industry that causes costs to be so high, which will result in at least $70 billion in new annual revenue, much of which is coming from taxpayers. This inevitably will lead to even more costs, more subsidies, and higher profits for insurance companies — a bailout under a blue cross.

    Yah! Right on, Scott! Because if the American government upholds the rule of law, the terrorists win!

    The hospital I went to has a clinic funded by private donations. That's where the money came from to pay the bill.

    Good for you and your doubting. His troop increases speak otherwise.

    and I doubt he won't continue to pursue healthcare reform
    You know nothing about approval ratings do you? In short: He won't get **** all on healthcare if he wants any hope of having any form of control at all in the future.
    - and likewise with climate change (which he has at least made inroads in, unlike most presidents who simply desire to do nothing).
    It's usually a state responsibility, not a national one, look @ california.:rolleyes:

    Also, WRT climate change, i could care less if a man who is chauffeured in a 3mpg limo and lives in a house with it's own bowling alley bleats on about climate change:rolleyes:

    And Americans are thinking in short-term too much. Of course there will be an increase in taxes will Healthcare form, but how can Americans claim that there system in the best? There are still plenty of people who don't get treatment with privatisation.
    Lol. Yes. There are. Nobody cares though.

    And yes their system is the best and the only one that could work in America.

    America =/= Britain. You can't implement the same things worldwide.:rolleyes:

    And btw - it's not "in the short term". Those taxes are going to be life-long...why in the hell would they want to increase them?

    "Oh yes, why I think I will increase the tax burden on myself in order to pay for someone else's healthcare":rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


    Sorry mate, not everyone wants socialism.

    Also - if Obama knows right from wrong (and I suspect he does) Rest assured he will drop the healthcare ********.

    I would prefer a private system because i don't want to spend my money for the health of others.


    Obama has the intelligence, and the potential, to be the best president in decades.
    :rolleyes:

    Yes.

    Obama is not like every other politician. He needn't follow party doctrine or listen to his advisors and aides. He is in this for the people and because he cares. Hope. Change. :rolleyes:



    Americans need to think about what they want, rather than protesting to everything that approaches change.

    Um. They know what they want.

    What they want =/= what you want. :rolleyes:







    Your opinion =/= universal truth.




    Also, you've failed to show me any substantial change he has made. You cited the stimulus bill which you claim led to a $25 increase in some jobs. Lol....$25.....


    1) Cite it, concrete proveable examples please.

    2) You conveniently forget he failed to freeze & cap the salaries of bailed out companies (i.e. GVT majority owner) CEOs as he promised.:rolleyes:





    but yeah, he's 'different'.:rolleyes:


    Wake up and smell real life politics mate, I don't know if you've ever worked with a party, been on a campaign team or ran for anything yourself but I assure you, it's not a one man thing like everyone is making it out to be for obama, in fact, when you run for anything you don't even get near most of the decisions.


    also. Bush was a good president. Everyone *****es about him but the reality is that nobody could do any better in the situation in which he was in, and don't forget, he didn't act alone he had the congress and senate (of which obama was a part of).

    Oh come on, even by Republican standards Bush was awful. Having said that Obama is looking desperate at the moment. If the Democrats aren't careful they are going to get massacred in the mid terms and the world will have to put up with another 12 years of hardcore Republicanism.
