    I doubt very much that the best interests of Joe taxpayer will take precedence over the interests of the Insurance lobby.

    I'm also guessing that when all is said and done that people like M&K's Retriever's opposition will fade.

    I would hope that the law will be declared unconstitutional, as it clearly is not an enumerated power in the Constitution; but I hold out little hope as that part of the Constitution had been trampled into the dust years ago.

    The Uber Powerful Trail Lawyer lobby is right there with the iinsurance lobby. Nothing is being said about the ambulance chasers and how they drive up the health care costs!

    Last night I was watching a discussion about this. They said that behind closed doors, the insurance lobby is against repeal of the bill. They want the mandate to stay in effect, but they want to see the consumer protections chiseled out of the bill. You know, stuff like pre-existing conditions and lifetime and yearly limits. The stuff that people are actually in favor of.

    I'm still confused how someone can be required to not deny people for preexisting conditions for INSURANCE. They are no longer insurance companies, they are now subsidized healthcare companies that is all.

    That is a horrible attempt at humor. You should be ashamed of yourself for making a joke like that.

    So, lets see if I got this right. The Republicans come up with the same health care plan that they pass into law. The Democrats oppose the Health Care plan and you and the righties here would go against their party and side with the Democrats?

    You didn't say A healthcare bill you said the SAME healthcare bill. If the same was passed I would be against it. If a different bill is passed we will have to wait and see whats actually in it.

    I think the insurance companies are silent because they have figured out a way to make money either way it goes.
