Lie to me

After a fantastic speech to the children of our Nation (even Republicans agreed so), the President took his momentum to the Congress in an effort to clarify his vision of health care reform, shore up some votes, and put the debate back on a civil trajectory.  As usual, however, the Republicans doubled down on lunacy and disrespect of the office by having one of their members (presumably not coerced) shout down the President by calling him a liar.  Leo hopes and expects that this one incident, representative and indicative of the last few months of town hall fiascos, will be a wake-up call for the Democrats and the White House.  Leo does some news and takes your calls.

Leo is like listening to the Glenn Beck for liberals. New Capital? Right, It should be called the new hand outs show. Please.

Folks quit falling for this left right paradigm. It's nothing but a tug of war that in the end leaves everyone in the mud.

Oh and the bit about harming your children by speaking ill of the president was a gem. Jeeze.

Can you please comment on Paul Krugman's July 25th Op-Ed titled "Why Markets Can't Cure Healthcare" (http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/25/why-markets-cant-cure-healthcare/)? Personally I agree with him because I feel that "capitalism" or a market based system is anathema to "healthcare." And by "healthcare" I guess I suppose I mean trying to provide healthcare (not insurance) to the most citizens for the least amount of cost. I would hate to trust my health to the cold hearted calculus of the market which deduces everything to a cost-benefit analysis. I actually would trust the government more because at least the government is elected by me to serve me which can't be said of insurance companies or corporations. So what would a new capitalist healthcare system look like?

This really hits home to me because even though I am a young healthy 27 year old I have a pre-existing condition which would all but prevent me from buying my own insurance if I needed it. My Medication alone costs over $1,000 per month.

How can Leo continually advocate a taxpayer based health care bill when we have rampant inflation? I'm starting to believe that Leo doesn't really run an investment firm.

So on top of our social security obligations, we are supposed to just lump on top of that, the "Single payer" option?

In a country that has exported everything, and imports everything.

From a country that doesn't make anything any longer, because it's too spensive.

So I guess that paying 100% of our taxes now, guarantees us 50% of our dollars worth of health 10 years down the road. Uh huh.

Are you kidding me? Doesn't Leo during his "Day Job" help folks shelter themselves from loss of capital?

Yet Leo finds some venue to advocate the exact opposite.

This must be what he calls "New Capital".

Do yourselves a favor folks, disregard capitalists who manage money by day, then preach socially based solutions on their off time.

Thanks for your observation Cory. I worked with Dept. of Defense in Germany from 1976 to 1981. The Germans appeared to have just as good or better healthcare than our military. they certainly had more sick leave if needed. they did not delay seeing the doctor for a meical concern because they could not pay for it. check out www.healthcareforalltexas.org Best to you!
