Subject: RE: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
McGrath: Your last post deleniates a major differenc between your country and mine. We enjoy a freedom that few countries enjoy except the U.S. If we were so bad, there wouldn't be so many risking their lives to sneak into our country. We do not rely on our government to dictate what we need. Our country was founded on the freedom to choose. Our government is not omnipotent, our elected representatives are supposed to work for us, we do not work for them. I think this difference accounts for the frustration many of our friends across the pond experience when it comes to debating US politics.

There are some who MAY benefit from the health care Bill that Obama signed today, but I wonder if in twenty years that will be the case. The figures supplied by the CBO are unreliable because the information provided them is flawed. Their projections must be based on the information they are provided. There is a real possibility that this program will bankrupt our country.
