70 Easy Democratic Reps that need to be voted out! Look at your district and get to work!

WASHINGTON — House Republicans are trying to rebound in the 2010 election from the hit they took last year's contests by targeting 70 districts held by Democrats.

That has got to be the silliest shit that I have ever heard of. What makes you think that the government can run healthcare? They can't even get a package delivered on time and on budget through the postal system. Just look at Amtrak or AT&T before the deregulation of telecummunications. As soon as the government got out of the way of AT&T, we got a huge explosion of technology...cell phones, internet, personal computers, satellite communication, digital technology. The government held all of that back. And now look at General Motors. That new green car, the Chevy Volt. Nobody is going to buy that stupid thing, especially for 40 grand.

If we socialize medicine, it will take them only about 2 years to set up the policy that if a person is not a productive constributor to the system, ie. old, retired people, disabled people...the government will pull the plug on them and give them "end of life counceling". That means some real Soylent Green kind of stuff. When Granny has used up her alotted healthcare, she gets put out of her misery. That is what they do in Britain. If a person has a terminal illness that costs a ton of money to cure, they will stall on approval of the treatment long enough to allow that person to die from thier illness. I don't want that shit here. Obama is just pissed at the insurance companies for dropping his mother for a pre-existing condition, so he is trying to drive them all out of business.

The US automakers have put out some shitty cars and I will tell you why. They are held to a different standard than foreign car makers. The CAFE standards would choke the life out of any car maker. Another thing that has held the US auto makers back is UNIONS. The contracts that these people have with the company is just outrageous. Full pay for retirees for life?!!! $75 bucks and hour for someone to twist a bolt? No wonder it costs 40 grand for that Chevy golf cart. No, those companies...Chevy, Chrysler...needed to die, go into bankruptcy and come back, WITHOUT THE DAMNED UNIONS. Unions had their place before WWII, but they are as archaic as rotary phones, black and white TV's and cars that run on leaded gas.

I heard with my own ears that Obama is in favor of a single payer system of healthcare and he was addressing a Union townhall meeting. As far a how to fix the healthcare system, let's start with TORT reform. The lawyers have screwed up medicine. Trial lawyers chasing ambulances are responsible for the outrageous prices that are charged at hospitals, doctor's offices and such. We have to take out hundreds of thousands of dollars in malpractice insurance just to keep the doors open and guess what 90% of the Washington politicians are? LAWYERS

Another thing that can be done is reform the insurance company's regulations. Inform them that if they drop someone due to pre-existing conditions then they can't do business between these borders. If the person is paying for the premium, then they get coverage. PERIOD!!! It is the greedy insurance companies that are causing a gap in coverage.

Another thing that can be done is stop giving medical treatment to illegal aliens on Medicaid in our emergency rooms. Mater of fact, stop giving out Medicaid to anyone that can't prove citizenship.

Notice, I didn't say anything about government provided healthcare. If we want to screw up medicine really badly, just bring in the government beurocrats. Bean counters don't make good decisions when it come to proper healthcare. And by the way, who is going to pay for all of this? They are proposing a trillion dollar healthcare package. Do you have any idea how much money that is? Obama has already run up more deficit than all of the other presidents combined and he is wanting to add this to it? Are you kidding me?!! Take it from me...I live in a state that has had government run healthcare. They called it TennCare. With all of the abuses that the system stood, it went belly-up and broke the state budget. The federal healthcare system will be no different. They are talking about insuring millions of illegal aliens, who by the way, don't contribute to the tax system. How is that going continue to be solvent? The answer is...no freaking way will it remain solvent. It will start out in the red and it will stay there until it either bankrupts the country or they do like Tennessee and cut the program's coverage to get the costs in line.

You are right about one more thing...Obama will be defeated.

How is it MY responsibility to pay for someone else's medical expenses? Call me mean, rude, uncaring, whatever, but the government has no right to force me to pay for the medical care of others. I don't care about the statistics, how many illegals or how many people qualify for health insurance but don't take it, or any of the other crap. The fact is that this is yet another form of welfare that Americans may be forced to pay. I have family members who have no health insurance and are having difficult times, and I help them where I can. That's the way to take care of those without healthcare. Family, charity, church, etc.... Congess needs to be told "Keep your fucking hands out of my pocket".

get those policies knowing their premiums go into the pool to pay for medical care for others who have policies with the same company. It is part of the deal and when you get a policy, you (should) understand that. But being an American citizen is not the same as having an insurance policy with a private company. You have failed to answer my very simple question, so to make sure you're not confused, I'll ask it again

How is the healthcare of others my responsibility?
