“To be "fair and balanced", I'm sure she'll soon bring on Republican party leaders and ask them --
What's the Republican plan to insure millions more with better plans that cover preexisting conditions and prevent people from going broke for health care costs is what?”

“A BIPARTISAN solution is the answer. Not a bill unread and passed in back rooms by one party. All these things that needed to be fixed can be by Congress in a way that is compatible with with our system of government.”

“Maybe she will also ask the Republican leaders - "Did you have any problems with insurance companies cancelling policies before Obamacare? And as a follow-up - how about insurance companies turning down people with pre-existing conditions?"
Now that is what I would like to see from a "fair and balanced" network.”

“It may be the first time they would be asked- the Dems did all they could to ignore any republican input-- so this fiasco is all on the dems-- thats a fact!
Nationalising heallthcare is a mistake, this launch will probably be the best result the dems can do-- and its a cluster-F”
“How about he wait for the UN report first, then build international support for collective action to isolate Syria. The U.S. should not go it alone. The unintended consequences could be severe. And there is an alternative.”
“FROM A LETTER TODAY BY FORMER REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN PETE MCCLOSKEY:
Declaring Bashar Assad a war criminal and suggesting that an international tribunal be convened to try him might do as much to deter future use of poison gas by Assad as any "surgical" military strike.
It is regrettable that the United States stood aside in the 1980s when we knew that Saddam Hussein was using poison gas against Iran as well as against its own Kurdish citizens. But if deterrence of future use of poison gas is a primary goal of President Obama, it is entirely consistent with the goal that Assad know that he will one day face trial as a war criminal.
A congressional resolution designating Assad as a war criminal would go a long way toward restoring the United States as a defender of international law as the best means of preserving peace.”
“Sad to see there are so many comments here from people who lack any understanding that there are politicians out there who will do whatever they legally can to suppress African Americans from voting now that the Supreme Court has opened the door for them.”
“I went to college and had no debt either. Of course, at the University of California system then there was only a $100 a year fee back in the late 1960's when we realized the value of state-supported public universities.”
“Really? Please read over this page summarizing study after study that shows climate change is real, and then show me similar, peer-reviewed studies that refute these. Easy to type the word "hoax". Impossible to back it up with facts:
“Wrong. ObamaCare will help ensure millions more who currently can't afford health insurance and are forced to use public institutions we all pay for because they have no other choice, which costs us.”
“Wrong, sorry. Pre ObamaCare tens of millions are without health insurance thanks to "free enterprise" health care.”

“Unfortunately, you are wrong. More people have insurance. That doesn't mean more people will have care. In fact, this recession has taught us a number of things, one of which is that there is elastic demand for healthcare. Although people have insurance, they forgo care because their deductibles and copays are too high (you know, the type of policy you buy when you couldn't have afforded insurance in the first place but now have to). I don't need to say this because the data demonstrates this but I know this to be true from, very unfortunately, personal experience. So please, don't equate insurance with care. They just aren't the same. And don't forget that those who do have insurance but don't have care will now have to forgo other near necessities to pay for mandated insurance they can't use.”
