Excellent link! All those Dems have VERY valid points. They're looking out for their constituents instead of selling out to an insanely costly ideological goal!

Excellent link indeed.

I've been harping and harping all along that this thing is a jobs killer and it's not even a little bit good for small business ...

It's nice to see actual Democrats agreeing ..

I'm glad more people are starting to take an interest in actually reading this stuff .. it is a pretty good read, and if it doesn't pass, well, then maybe the Pelosi crowd can send it to Hollywood so that it can be made into a horror movie.

Interesting how this thread is several hours old, and yet not a single forum liberal has stopped in to opine. Could it be that they themselves have been cheering for the legislation on ideological grounds, instead of the merits of the bill itself? I would say that's a resounding YES. How ironic that liberals criticize Republican's as the Party of No, when in reality, liberals are the Party of Yes, all things logical be damned. The writing is on the wall for 2010/2012.

Very Nice link,alot of interesting things could be found in there. As I stated recently that this Forced Health Bill was Unconstitutional and the only issue is on commerce. This article confirms it. I knew I was listening way back when you learned how important the Constitution is to each and everyone of us.

It's a pity that none of them are willing to admit it will cause treatment rationing. Benefits are not treatment but the President keeps trying to confuse the two with seniors.

I think some are just not in those exact words

REP. MIKE ROSS (D-AR): “With More Than $400 Billion In Cuts To Medicare, It Could Force Many Of Our Rural Hospitals To Close, Providing Less Access And Care For Our Seniors” (Rep. Ross, Press Release, 11/8/09)

That is basically saying just that
