American Republicans are set to cripple the government due to "Americans fundamental right not to have health care."

anyone - even our current conservative government that is somewhere to the right of your tea party on a lot of issues - in this country that tried to do anything to our health care would be facing mutiny.

why aren't people protesting in the streets?

you're the only member of the G20 without some kind of health care program for your citizens and you still spend more on it per capita than the rest of us that do have programs.

Grandstanding at its worst. Today's Daily News cover nailed it

Keep in kind the paper is owned by long-time Republican, Mort Zuckerman. (But then again, he was born in Canada, so he's another David Frum-type RINO

ETA: no matter what side of the debate you're on, EVERYONE should have the right to be informed about the Affordable Care Act and what it would mean for them. This site is very easy to use, and will tell you what your health insurance would cost under the new provisions.

Republicans could derail the health care overhaul if conservative lawmakers were willing to push fellow Republicans including their cautious leaders into cutting off financing for the entire federal government.

I consider myself a moderate and have always believed that we need a healthy 2-party system (if not more than 2 parties) for more balanced policies/legislation and meaningful debate. I'm sick of seeing one of those 2 parties taking complete leave of its senses and dragging everyone else down with it.

"The peoples' reps have spoken and we don't like what they've said so we're going to huff and puff and shut everything down!" is not a wise tactic for the country or for the immediate future of the Republican party.

@stephenlautens

Nothing brings the American Right together like a principled fight to deny poor children health care. #GOP


okay, truth in advertising time...

Stephen Lautens is a Canadian writer based in Toronto, i used to work with his mom 30 years ago and his father was the premier columnist for The Toronto Star for most of my life. the day Jackie Lautens introduced me to her husband Gary is still etched on my mind as one of the best days of my life.
