37 states are enacting laws tonight to block it from their jurisdictions. 10th Amendment.

thats just going to make the mess bigger

What are you talking about? A constitutional challenge is--literally--the only way to repeal an entitlement program.

I understand it will repeal it, but imo everyone will just get more divided on this and the other issues the country faces.

Ugh, why focus on health care? The U.S. still in debt and it's in the middle of a recession. It's not like this is going to help the economy.

My view on this matter is that I know just enough about politics to safely say I have no clue what this bill is going to do. Also, now all my friends are going to scream and shout that the sky is falling when I know for a fact that they know just as little about this bill as I do.

It mandates a lot of stuff and who knows what will actually come to pass from it. But the big thing is that it HAS passed, which means that at the very least we'll all die.

V.I.P.
This came up in my Microeconomics class today. Funny thing is it was a class mostly filled with very conservative students with a very liberal professor. After five minutes one of the students literally shouted, "Okay everyone need to just calm down and not talk about this anymore!" It was very interesting.

As for me, all I'm saying is that I'm totally against it.

I haven't read a lot about this but how is health care for everyone bad? Other countries have done well.
You'll be paying more taxes, I get that. You'll be paying for unemployed people, you might end up being unemployed and in need of health care someday.

It'll probably be hard at first with the current economy but looking at the big picture I don't see how this could be bad.

I haven't really thought about it much, but I don't like the idea of paying extra in taxes for someone who smokes and gets lung cancer and needs health care for the medical bills. But like toreador said, what if you're unemployed and need health care? Then you're going to thank the US government for doing something right.
