    Why the hell does everything they have to do today be 2000 pages?
    It will probably turn out to be 3000 pages once all the amendments are put into the bill.
    Heck, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights aren't even that many pages.

    I tend to agree. I checked LTC insurance out myself a few years ago and the numbers aren't good. The premium costs to get a plan that will pay out the $10,000 a month that will be required are too expensive for most people to pay. And people worth $1.5 million or so can afford to pay for care themselves. It's a narrow range of people that these plans works out for.

    Judge Napolitano is one smart man.

    Not to mention a strong supporter of Ron Paul ;)

    How can you be for and against something?

    Ron Paul's defense stance is why he'll never be elected to the White House.

    He flip flops.

    RP may not ever get elected. But his ideas are what counts. A true conservative.

    I just wanted to point out one more time that Obama said if you like your health insurance you can keep it.
    Pelosi has said that if the insurance companies raise their rates they won't be allowed into the exchanges.
    According to this health bill insurance compnanies have to include people with pre-existing conditions.
    Again they will receive new customers but not everyone will buy insurance especially until needed for some reason.

    How are they not going to be able to raise rates since they have to go by the 85\15 rule much less the more spent on people with Pre-existing conditions?

    I get it. Like every legislator that voted to go after Hussein then acted like it was all Bush.

    That would be correct.
