What the passage of Proposition C in Missouri means, and what it does not mean

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) does not have to worry about her individual race, but she will have a fight to maintain her position as Speaker of the House. The most recent generic ballot average from Talking Points Memo has 41.1% of Americans voting for a generic Democrat, with 46.1% voting for a generic Republican. AP Photo

    You guys should stop complaining cuz one the health care we have now isnt as good as it was supposed to be. also the law has just been signed give it a try u guys are too hard on democrats they went to college and we voted for most of these people.so if u want to say u have the right to choose tell that to ur congress men or state official. as for obama people are just tryin to make it look like america made a mistake he has done things to help us and we had a full 8 years of a terrible president and i will be so as happy as ever when a obama fixes bush's mistakes. You can find full medical coverage at the lowest price from www.bit.ly/chE6zp . obama has to put up with the world judging his every move and trying to fix the mess we are in we are lucky anyone wants to be our president. STOP COMPLAINING AND GIVE HIM A BREAK. i wanna see one of yall do what he has done. some people are just so ignorant.

    ... and asking people if they like getting health care for "free", with no preconditions, without asking them if they like higher taxes, longer lines and government rationing is equally silly.

    Another incumbent has been slashed by the Obama train in Michigaan. The mother of a convicted criminal ex-Mayor.
    Michigan Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick lost the election.

    "She's the sixth — and the fourth in the House — to lose so far this year. And the frustrated electorate could deal others the same fate in primaries over the next two months, not to mention the general election in November, when nothing less than the balance of power in Washington will be at stake.

    In another nod to fresh blood, Michigan voters chose political newcomer Rick Snyder as the Republican nominee in the race to succeed outgoing Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm in a state severely battered by the economic downturn."

    Both sides and the majority of the US cited that pre-existing condition clauses in insurance should be stopped. People would wait to get insurance until they got sick because it makes sense economically. So - how to get rid of one without requiring insurance of all is virtually impossible. As with so many problems - Americans want to have their cake and eat it too.

    Constitutionally speaking - I have wondered if rather than fighting the 10th Amendment - the Congress should not have focused on their bankruptcy powers enumerated in running bankruptcy fairly to every state.

    After all over half of bankruptcies claim medical expenses as a huge factor in cause. The cost of bankruptcy is ultimately absorbed by tax payers.

    Diegochase: We do tell those in congress but they do what they want anyway like deeming a bill into law. And I could easily do what Odumba has done, take vacations and appear on the View. QED! Let me know when he does something difficult.

    Witt thinks people are too stupid to know what they were voting for.....

    Wait a minute, a majority voted for Obama.....

    Well, I'll be darned, he's right on this one!

    If it had been represenative of the actual opinions of Americans, it would have simply asked,

    'Do you want the Health Care Bill repealed?'

    58% would have said 'YES'.

    I could care less about this. I have health insurance, and I wouldn't live without it. I already pay for others healthcare through higher insurance rates. Making people purchase health insurance only gets them to pay their fair share. If a deadbeat with a broken leg shows up at the hospital, they get a cast on their leg (and we all pay for it in our insurance). If a deadbeat has diabetes and doesn't get treated until their foot falls off, we pay 10X more than we would if the deadbeat got preventative treatment.
