    Against it.

    Only an idiot would be for it unless their agenda was building power for the Democrat party.

    The immediate effects of this bill, should it become law, will be a decrease in the quality of healthcare, an increase in costs, a decrease in efficiency, an increase in tax and a doubling of the national debt.

    Anyone smart enough to work Google can determine that we can't afford what we already have - Medicare/Medicaid. Depending upon whose numbers you access -the CBO or Llewellyn Group, it's easy to see that Medicare/Medicaid already has between $37 and $107 trillion in unfunded debt obligations.

    But you don't even have to be smart enough to understand numbers and finance to know that this bill is a bad idea - point out one venue in your life where the government has brought increased efficiency or quality to an endeavor.

    Even the guys who proposed the bill can't defend it - when asked to point out one nation in the developed world that has a socialized medical system that they would model ours after, they falter.

    No wonder, Canada and Britain contain costs through rationing - there are many on this board who would be too old for some procedures or replacement organs in those countries. Canada has few specialists and their government plans on augmenting the shortfalls of their system by using the US's medical system. Toward this end the Canadian government spent $9 billion in the US last year for medical care, and more telling, when one of their ministers became seriously ill, he came to the US for treatment.

    Sleepin' by the numbers
    still 44 for, 40 against and 16 dunno

    I suspect, if it starts showing up Against, they'll reset the poll. I think they recently did that with a gun poll, because the numbers did not match those reported earlier by GT'ers.
