There are people who hate healthcare? Unless of course "healthcare" and "excessive taxes" can be used interchangeably in your world. The current system isn't working for everyone and needs some major changes....but do you really trust Washington to use the increased tax revenue (as a result of nationalized healthcare) wisely? If you'll notice, at the "40.00" mark that you mentioned the lady asked about the inevitable huge tax increase and Obama doesn't even try to address that issue...just going on and on about how the government needs to run things. Earlier in his speech he suggested that the US needs to be more like India and China..

Obama's intention is admirable. Also his commitment to repsecting his promisses. However, not all public healthcare systems in the world work well. Some European countries have major problems with this, despite offering coverage to all their citizens. This causes displease for these citizens because they all pay healthcare tax but the quality of service suffers.

this is why i can understand the insurance mandate aspect of the health reform bill. its gonna have to be paid for one way or another, whether through taxes or insurance, so it makes sense for a large country like the US to have a more decentralized healthcare system

World superpowers don't need an army you guys, we all know that, because with the amount of times people say funding should go from the military to cause X, I'm pretty sure by the end of it there would be no military left, which I guess would be just fine for the unrealistic utopian fantasies of the average academic.

In reality, you don't have to cut spending, just don't spend money like a retard in the first place. Budgetting is the issue, not total funds.

Next time you people starting chanting "reduce waste fraud and abuse" in order to cut taxes I'm gonna link you back to all these posts where you get a hard on for military spending, since defense spending is BY FAR where the most waste fraud and abuse of government spending occurs.
