    mshood7 - Your arguments are laughable! The majority decided they wanted this health care bill when the majority voted to elect him. That was part of the deal. Your majority were only a few with big mouths. This was discussed and debated for over a year. I guess you hate it when they didnt invite you into the back rooms. The Republicans had their chance and they did nothing about it. Where were the discussions during the Bush years? Thats the general idea to find what works or not. Perfect reason why it doesnt go into effect until 2014. Duh!

    I understand that Mr. Obama was hired to do just one thing and at the expense of being a one term president, was to pass Gov't run Healthcare very expedictiously! There were certain parts that would guarantee redistriution of welfare from those who could pay a small fee. And those who were rich and successful from being a participant in the capitalist system thru hard work and sacrifice would have to pay the way for those who had not yet had a chance to succeed because of guarantees from the gov't sponsored welfare system that bleeds and sucks the life out of those who work and pay their fair share to those who are not given the chanceto work and pay their fair share because of this vicious cycle of redistribution by the socialist command of selective indignation.

Democracy was not on their minds when they co opted this bill. It was to put our HealthCare in the hands of an already powerful and greedy admin. Now, when you get to the part about raising the cost for services rendered and

    I would first ask that those who decided against the wishes of the majority of Americans to read what they discussed in backrooms and dark halls of Congress. This piece of so called HC that is suppose to cover everone...was not even read and discussed or debated with the American people. Now you want to know the particulars and try to implement a policy that you and I don't even know will work. Ha! That's laughable. IT'S A LITTLE LATE...ya think?

    Kinda reminds me of the WCPSS board. Let's vote, then we will develop a plan. This health care plan strategy seems backwards, but at least they are trying, I guess.

    "Once we know what works'

    DO WHAT? You mean no one knows what this will do and did not before they forced it upon us? Now there's a surprise. I bet Bev loves it because she'll be long gone by the time it kicks in and no one will be blaming her. They'll be blaming Gvoernor Roy Cooper!

    It is going to be a nightmare... and cost us all dearly. It will not save us money, health care will cost us all more. And it will cost us the quality and accessibility we have always enjoyed.

    There are so many pages to the legislation to really determine what will have to be done! And regulations to implement the ACT have not been written yet -- these could contain requirements that are not spelled out in the legislation, if past history is any indications of what is coming!
