Menmom....when the Republican's defeated Hilary's/Bill's attempted takeover of our healthcare, they used a common tactic in Congress, putting a compromise forward that they knew would be attractive to grossly liberal Dem's.....knowing well that the majority in Congress would not support this radical plan. It worked perfectly to expose Hilary and kill her plan! Nice try, Menmom....but no balloon! Also, we all know that some so called Republicans, are not really committed to the fundamentals of being Republicans...we call them RINO's....so a few votes does not define our party! For everyone who likes to throw the 'red herring' of Romney Care out in this debate.....When Governor of the Socialist Republic of Mass..Romney understood his state and the political leanings in the state. Thus he supported this centralized health care at the state level. All the Dem's in that state expect the state, Feds, or someone to take care of them....consistent with their Marxist beliefs, kinda like you Menmon....Nuff Said!
