    If it were Republicans that formed this bill and tried to pass it, I'd be mad.

    But you libs, you just follow along like sheeple and do what you are told.
    And when asked how could you support this, you make some derogatory comment about the Bush years...

    Yeah you are right. The american people don't need to know. They just need to get in line and take what they are getting.

    What do you want to wager, that if, and of course that's a big if...
    America got to see what was in this bill .. it would not pass.

    Of course. I just feel that there are a lot of things, that even you, don't understand about thsi legistlation. And you are pretty informed.


    How informed are those people that have no alternative way to be informed.

    No internet, no cable, no satellite radio. No way to find out a different point of view than the one peing pushed thru liberal media.

    It's not a wonder why the left wants to keep those who are on welfare down at the bottom rung. If they could afford alternative medium, they would learn a lot about how they are being enslaved and being used as political pawns to divide the country.

    The mainstream media should not be calling themselves journalists any longer. Journalists are objective and do not take sides of a political figure.

    They are supposed to report the news and be cynical of what the politicians are saying and ask them hard questions so the people can hear what they need to hear and be empowered to make choices based on more than just one point of view.

    obama promised that bills will be online for anyone to see for 48 hours before a vote.

    he said in the past it was wrong for congress to pass bills without the people knowing what was going on and in his administration it would be different

    since it is tax payer money it seems fair and reasonable that we know what they are doing with it.

    just a guess, people who don't have access to the net or cable or anything...most likely also don't care to read the bill or would even understand it. And just a guess, but 98% of Americans don't have the background to read this bill and know what its effect would be with any real basis. It would be like handing a complicated military plan to a kid at a coffee shop and saying, think this would work? They may have a Opinion but its worthless as they lack the background needed. I know Economics was not a area of focus for me in school though I took micro , macro, and international finance...But Elections, Marketing, Third party Politics, and National Security are my areas of strong background...for Economics I am smart enough to know when to look to those who have that background to make the decisions and try to make my view based on what they have to say...not reading the huge bill myself as it would be a wast of time I don't have.
