    HR3200
    Division A, Title IV pages 167-215 Amendments to IRS Code of 1986,
    would empower the IRS to require taxpayers to show proof of health insurance coverage, collect fines on individuals and employers who did not have adequate proof of health insurance and determine whether your health insurance was a government approved plan.

    And we get 53 new agencies, to boot.

      While the MSM in this country say ‘tens of thousands’ marched, elsewhere in the world it looks like this:

      Up to two million march to US Capitol to protest against Obama’s spending in ‘tea-party’ demonstration

    The democrat Congress, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi run, just handed 20 TRILLION in freebies and loans to WallStreet, the bankers, foreign banks, their UAW union, their favored BIG BANK INSURANCE Companies, and assorted foreign central banks and offshore entities.
    They TOTALLY SPANKED EVERY DIME and then some the republicans ever gave or got from bigoil and big business IN ONE FELL IDIOT SWOOP OF DEMOLIB TRILLIONS HANDED TO THEIR CORPO PARTNERS IN CRIME AND FRIENDS AND FAMILIES AND LOBBYISTS WORKING FOR THEM !
    THEY’RE ALL MULTI-MILLIONAIRES NOW TEN TIMES OVER AND THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES ARE ROLLING IN THE MOOLAH –
    They, the democrats, are worse than the republicans ever were, yet the demolib liars screeched about republicans and greed and business MY ENTIRE LIFE AND PRETENDED THEY, THE DEMOCRATS WERE COMPLETELY INNOCENT AND AGAINST SUCH THINGS…
    Well, the democrats lied to me for 30 years straight, and now their big fat money hogging massive corpo wall street banksters connections are APPARENT for all to see…
    Not only that, but they have TAKEN OVER AND PRIVATIZED BUSINESS AND BANKS IN A MASSIVE OPEN DISPLAY OF FASCISM!
    DEMOCRAT FASCISTS! MONEY SUCKING TRILLION DOLLAR ROBBER BARRON FASCISTS !
    They “promote their fascism” with the other TOTALITARIAN ideation / face – COMMUNISM – as they rob the nationm blind for trillions, they preach their COMMUNISM FREEBIES to the “masses” – and yes indeed, they are such satanic liars they claim it’s all FREE – just like Obama said “healthcare won’t cost a dime of deficit or debt” – and if you are a retarded beelzebubba libtard democrat socialist progressive of course you believe flappy lips and ears 100000000% !
    I’ve NEVER seen such massive HYPOCRISY and BLATANT LYING in my entire life.
    Hang on people, the COMMUNISTS (now called democrats, progressives, liberals, whateva, lefties) have taken over the whole thing – they started “offically” with the New Deal( but they were at work here way before that, read Bella Dodd’s book, the commies were here in 1900 and before – taking things over slowly but surely, then The Great Society, and all that power and control has morhped into the blackest demonic hellhorde of total theft and lies you, or I, or anyone not form a third world pit could possibly imagine.
    The USA is virtually GONE – and I do not believe it will be “taken back” – hold on because the left is going to grab EVERYTHING then parlay the horror and crash into their LibSpeak dictatorship pretty words of love, as they use the neocon right to become the ENFORCEMENT ARM and CRUSH the people revolting.
    There is NO WAY OUT, and you are now LIBBORG, assimilated.

    HEALTH, WHAT IS IT. HOW CAN A PERSON WHO SMOKES EVERY DAY, A PACK A DAY AND NOT GET CANCER OR EVERN BE SICK. HOW CAN SOME PEOPLE NOT GET AIDS. WHAT IS THE REASON, FOR THE RIGHT TO HEALTH CARE. WHAT IS THE REASON WE SHOULD PAY FOR OTHER PEOPLES CHOICES. WHAT IS MONEY, WHAT IS IT’S REASON, DOES IT REALY HAVE VALUE. WHY DO PEOPLE KILL AND STEAL, CHEAT AND LIE FOR THE PAPER MONEY. WHO R WE TO SAY WHAT HAS VALUE AND WHAT DOES’NT. WHO EVER SAID THAT THE CONSTITUTION WAS A BOUCH OF LAWS. I THOUGHT THE CONSTITUTION WAS IDEAS, IN WHITCH PEOPLE FELT WAS A VERY GOOD IDEAS TO STAND WITH. IT WAS THE MAP IN WHITCH TO “PURSE” TO BE FREE. FREE IN MIND AND BODY. YET STILL REMEMBER WHEN OTHERS BELIEVE IN THE SAME AS U OR ME, U MUST LET THEM LEARN. WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT IS TO MAKE THERE OWN CHOICES.

    The reason why our healthcare is so bad is because we are so unhealthy. We eat like inhumane savage animals, which has become the norm. The top four diseases in our country comes from bad eating habits. Scientists and doctors predict that 50% of our grandchildren will end up with diabetes.

      Just take Ron Paul for an example. He is a healthy guy, he grows his own vegetables. He wasn’t conditioned at a young age to eat happy meals. “Oh the times, they are a-changin.” – Bob Dylan

    In actual fact the US people are not broke.Your wealth is always in your people.It is the banking system that steals from people the right to work via debt slavery.How can there be unemployment when there are so many people willing to work just to survive?This is total BS and the sooner the Fed is abolished then the better for all humanity.

    Just reform the system.

    Support for reform is support for the country, people, the health system and industry. Not neccesarily support for democrats.

    The selfish genes have to be put in neutral by each one that have them crancked up. Maybe that is one of the problems.

    People in Washington and in positions sheltered by power are not fully aware of the everyday reality in all kind of communities (rich and poor, because middle class is gone). It’s bad.

    Probably because the leadership relies too much in high tech for everything. You are loosing touch with the people and the reality, it shows too in the care of patients.

    Sorry, but I had to say it!

    Lobbying must be legal when people at the higher level are openly involved in this activity (is it?). Still, a quarter of a BILLION is a lot of money for me. That would fund several needed research projects.

    Patients will continue to go abroad if there is no reform to the Health system, not just for insurance.

    Please get it done so that the industry survive and the people can function.
