“These countries have other problems that has nothing to do with their national healthcare system and more to do with what happened in 2008 with all of the subprime loans and Wall Street. American companies were bailed out, these countries have been trying to recover ever since then. You are the one who need to do research and stop listening to these politicians. Google it”

“National Healthcare Systems are working all over the world, please research them. The Republicans stand for less Government, I understand that , but if the system is not working, it needs to be changed. My healthcare insurance rate doubled last year. That is why it is call the Affordable Healthcare Act amd the Republicans would rather use the name Obamacare, because it is a tactic they use to get people like you to become afraid of any change. I have researched these systems in other countries and they work.”

“Like in Spain, or Italy, or Greece, yeah they are working great, lol. Canada's system is draconian to the people. Regardless of that, whatever, like a said, Obamacare is not a National Healthcare system. Do more research on it, you are clearly confused about the effects of this bill. Nothing like the systems in other countries.”

“If you are married and trying to get an ID in NJ, you must have a certified copy of your marriage certificate as well as something proving your address and several other forms of ID that are assigned a point value and it all must add up to a minimum number of points. The really stupid thing about it is it's just giving the people who provide false documents more business...instead of buying a single form, the cheaters have to buy several. Of course, it creates more problems for the legitimate requests. Costs them extra money. Makes more work for bureaucracy and does nothing to stop fraudulent applications.”

You don't say whether or not you will be voting for the other candidate, and if you do that's fine, although they are so starkly different, I wouldn't understand that either. If you don't vote at all, then the people who died so you could vote will have died in vain and I definitely don't comprehend that. Whichever you decide, I hope you will still vote.”

“The president is attempting to be the constitutional example that this country needs so badly. You are willing to walk away from the poll because of a single issue? Then when your medicare and social security dry up and your rights as a women are diminished, you will be able to live with that? I find that people who vote based on single issues do not have any idea that they are damaging their family. If God made us all in his image then why is it alright to discriminate against any of them? If someone does not follow your religious ideals, what happened to tolerance? What happened to judge not lest ye be judged? Is that only available to one side? The constitution speaks to equity under the law for all men. Women couldn't vote, blacks could not vote, native americans could not vote and this is kurt last minority who have waited a very long time to be equal under that document. It is time to quit using religion to discriminate.”

“The United States is the only modern country that does not have a national healthcare system. Last year I wrote a research paper on the national healthcare system in Japan. Its very cost effective and everyone are insured. The understand why the Republican politicians does want it, (because their buddies, the big insurance companies would lose money), but the American people being against it, baffles me. In my city the Republicans that I have talked to who opposes the healtcare act, themselves do not have health insurance, they can't afford it. That really baffles me.”

rchwel on May 3, 2012 at 16:22:33

“The reason so many people are oppossed to national healthcare is because the CON cult has been extremely successful at demonizing it as socialism, but the irony is most people don't even know the defnition of the word. They have been brainashed over the years to believe its bad but yet those who have social security and medicare love it and have no idea both are socialist when you think about it. The CON cult has done the same with the word "regulation" they have the simple minded people believing their BS and laughing at the dummies behind their backs. Hopefully the people will wake up and realize the words they should despise are "greedy capitalism" and "CONservative !”

You are sorely mistake on Clinton. Bill Clinton didn't "clean up the mess".

1. The interent boomed while he was in office, so government revenue sky rocketed. THANK GOD invented the internet!!!

2. First Jimmy Carter signed the Community Reinvestment Act in 1977. Then in 1995 Clinton and the congress at the time reformed the Act in a way to create more "fairness", but ultimately laid the ground work for the housing bubble. After that it was just a matter of time. Bush tried to rein in Freddie and Fannie, but didn't do enough and once Democrats Frank and Dodd got into the Banking and Finance Committees in 2004 it was all over. This is well documented, Clinton is even on record claiming his actions contributed to it.

3. Clinton never had a surplus. NEVER HAPPENED. It was just creative accounting and pure propaganda. The day he took office there was about 4.2 Trillion in total national debt, and the day he left office there was about 5.7 Trillion dollars in total national debt. These numbers aren't opinions, their verifiable facts. Source: http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/NPGateway
