"Healthcare started its demise during..."

Actually, it happened in 1942, when an executive order intended to help the war effort was signed. With that, the health insurance system as we've known it--along with all of its attendant problems--was born.

Ever since then, all of the "reform" has been a charade. It's been nothing more than taking more steps in the same direction we were steered in seven decades ago.

I would prefer that Congress passes an Affordable Food Act.

It would also be better to enact a Freedom Law, but that was done 238 years ago now called the Constitution and all 535 members of Congress need to read what's in it.

The Founding Fathers knew what was in it before it ever was passed as a declaration of independence.

If Congress were really doing its job, the would have classes on how to read the Constitution so they know what's in it.

Maybe we in North Dakota should take a long hard look at ourselves. We pull far more out of the federal treasury than our taxpayers put it. So when we point the finger at others, three come back to us!

DakotaBorn, you can't mean that we should close all Military Bases and Indian reservations then do you? But then we have those darn rich farmers that get stimuli along with the other States that farm subsidies go too also. Agriculture has become too big to fail and while at it; eliminate the food stamp program.

Maybe you should take a hard look at your own self?

Just look around: there are states out there that have military bases, national parks, agriculture, food stamps, federally owned land, reservations and federal government offices and still get back less than their taxpayers put in.

then skew the numbers on a per/capita basis and see how the big states measures up with a small state like ND.

So tell me, does all of this overheated rhetoric really do anyone any good? Is anyone REALLY convincing anyone else of the righteousness of their cause by insulting, patronizing, and condescending to those they need to convince?

This is a true statement, now more than ever...

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

Now, I have to say, rushslide truly exceeded my expectations for obnoxious, self gratifying, off the wall, factless, and completely erroneous posts. Not only that, but you needed seven posts to express absolutely nothing. Great job. Your qualities of worthlessness are on display to the max. We had an added bonus with sly comments full of facts from animal and whistler. Certainly we like posts with no derogatory statement and full of factual presentations. We just have trouble keeping from laughing at your feeble presentations. hahaha

That BeautyRest Bed has done wonders for you center. NOT. No matter what side of the bed you get up on will not matter or change your disposition. Have a wonderful day!

You can't be both "conservative" AND the #1 beer drinking state. That doesn't add up.

The hospitals are as over-run as the schools and police departments with your nonsense.

I don't know that folks who love drinking and guns can reasonably argue that mandated health insurance isn't a good idea.

The fact is -- N.D. is one of the least healthiest places in the nation. Not only is everyone boozing and smoking like sailors on permanent leave, 3 out of 4 are also overweight.

Freedom isn't free. Why should someone else pay your hospital bills?

I haven't seen many positive, caring and optimistic posts from liberals today. Could that BeautyRest thing have some merit?

The ND Neanderthals say they're fed up with health care costs, but when they're not complaining -- they're eating.

So, loco, what would you call the posts from your right wing friends?? Maybe you should go back and read all of rushslide's posts and report back on the quality of his conversations. You support that kind of behavior from the right, what is your problem with the left? Oh, I forgot, we don't follow Faux News, Rush, Shawn and the boys. Oh, by the way, whistler, I don't need a beauty rest and I sleep great on my Sealy. How about you?.

Well, I just came from a self-employed businessman where he told me he NOW has Insurance for the FIRST time in over 28 yrs due to prior medical condition!

The same would apply to me under certain circumstances so pls tell me what the GOP has done to improve this type of situation in the last 100 years???

THIS is a great question UNLESS it proves THEY (GOP) like to laugh while some people SUFFER!

It's obvious the amount of FOX news viewers on this site today.....They're repeating the same talking points since the 7.1 million announcement without contributing any individual thought process of their own.....

Sheeple guarded by the FOX no doubt!

I ask one simple question. And all the history buffs and all the know it all's can't even give an Opinion. I guess that tells me all I need to know. I was correct in making my decisions.
