Question by : Why cant democrats distinguish between a massive health care law and an employee benefit?
The act of becoming a Senator or Representative is an occupation

We have had health care based on employment for decades

Why do democrats keep yelling about the health care of senators and the vote to repeal health care. So what if a republican takes their BENEFIT from their job and still want to kill a badly passed, badly written, hack piece of legislation?

One is how we have always have done things, and the health care law is a massive government expansion into our lives

They are totally separate, i guess they think it sounds good?

Answer by scott b
The way we “always have done things” doesn’t WORK. That’s the whole point.

I swear to God I hate both political parties. Democrats are funded by the same people who fund every other campaign in the nation, and pretty much the world— powerful oligarchs. Don’t you remember when Clinton tried to pass the healthcare bill in the 90s and it was destroyed, mostly at the hands of the insurance companies? Corporate influence in our government is so obvious that it’s become impossible to hide. And at the same time, independent of these facts, the elected officials are still people. People want power, otherwise they never would’ve even ran for office in the first place. Votes translate to increased power, not to change. Democrats claim they support civil liberties and helping minorities, riding off the achievements of earlier men. However, they do nothing to enact these changes they speak of. The only reason they make any attempts to help minorities, or women, or gays, or any of the other groups that they claim to represent; is so they can seem like they’re helping, and thus be able to tap these same demographic groups for votes late on. The party system also kind of reminds me of the nations in the novel 1984, who trained their populace to hate the various other political systems in the world, when in actuality their own system was not that different from the one they hated. However, they were psychologically manipulated to be blind to this fact. There are still millions of poor people, and that isn’t the Republicans fault. They blame them, but the

I am amazed what is being done to our country. We are in two wars and our economy is trashed, however, the Democrats are using this hardship to grab power by the government. Am I the only one that sees this so clearly?

To listen to the administration, it isn’t the war, terrorists, economy, but healthcare. What’s wrong with healthcare? They say it is because it isn’t completely controlled by the government. And they use the lame excuse that the economy will not recover unless the government controls it. While our military is waiting on troops for their survival and success, congress has completely turned their back on them and focusing on their pet healthcare plan as if that is the biggest concern. It is not and was not.

Now they are going on a power grab of the Internet. They are now going to tax it with the excuse to protect our children they need to police it and the new policing needs to be paid for by internet users (that means, taxpayers or in easier terms, the American people).

These reasons are too lame and it seems clear to me that the Democrats needs people to be “dependent” on them so they will be reelected. They did this with the poor and minorities starting in the 70′s and I think they are trying to include everyone. It took Bill Clinton to overturn that since only a Democrat could remove what Democrats damaged. Will we be so lucky this next time? Once they control our lives and we are dependent on them for survival, we will elect them based on their promises.

Am I wrong on this? If so, explain to me how I have become so misguided, without being insulting… just give me the facts.
jennifer, I appreciate your insight and I disagree on your opinion of “no rush to send more troops.”

Too many don’t understand that those who graduate from the war colleges aren’t simply guys that learn how to shoot. These schools are every bit as in depth as schools of physics or math. These guys are the “experts” on war… not politicians. We saw how Johnson, that thought because he was elected president had some special knowledge about war and extended our fight in Vietnam until we were defeated.

Obama has been told by his advisor and other retired generals agree, that time (rush) is important since there will be a ‘point of no return.’ It was clearly stated by McChrystal. When you don’t take “experts” advice, you act as a fool. We will lose this war based on a person that only has a degree in Law because he thinks like many football fans do… that they are just as good as the experts.
It’s simply Monday morning quarterbacking… the same charge that leveled against Johnson for losing the war.

So while I disagree with you on the above, you could be right and I could be wrong on the rush to send troop. However, as far as claiming Democrats are not Socialists, that’s nonsense. You really have to have your head in the sand to printed otherwise. This is 2009. If you want to pull out history books for a time long ago, you could make that case, but we are all living through it today and it is clear their agenda is socialism. It’s no secret, although many Democrats are ashamed of the term just like they were ashamed of the term “liberal” a number of years ago.
