Breaking news on Fox, 940 billion? Yep thats gonna help us alot. Whats your opinion? How can a politician after seeing this possibly support such a bill when we are in such an economic crisis?

Over ten years which is nothing compared to what we waste on other spending. The CBO does not take into account what happens in the private sector or the savings to small business..

keep in mind that this isnt the entire deficit, JUST the healthcare

Exactly. Just about what we spent on the Bradley development and the F@@ that won't fly in the rain or fire missle's. What is not in the CBO is the number of small businesses that can start hiring help again.

They don't care because it won't effect them...we will pay higher taxes...we will cut back on our life styles to cover not only this...but ALL the debt. Most of them can't even be bothered to pay their taxes...so why should they care if it hurts us.

No what we need is to kick the corrupt jerks out and get honest people in there. People who actually KNOW and FOLLOW the laws, the constitution and are TRUE public servants.

Looking at a single number with no referenece and without looking at the savings as well is like looking at only one side of a coin. To answer your question though, there are more issues here than simply money and that's why those who support the bill, support the bill.

I agree there are a lot of different facets to this issue. But let me also point out that this is not the entire budget, just healthcare.
