How in the world are they going to pay for this? Everything I read on-line and in the papers never says how they will pay for this. My only question to everyone that is for this new health care...Would you start building a house without know the cost of building that house? The people you elect should hold the same check and balance as the everyday person they represent.

When Larson and all the union 'elite' agree to be on the same plan as they are trying to force upon the common citizenry of America , it would carry enough weight to at least consider .

Until such time , NObama Death care for me .

I think that we should make all these dictators with no home pay !After all they only know how to screw people out of their money. They can't make any on their own.

The funny thing about this is that Jackie Majerus' take on the whole thing was read from the "dog and pony show" that was put on by some union. I can't believe she's that naive.
