    Alias:


    I was born in St. Paul. so learned how to talk "Minnesotan" a long time ago, and my parents were life long Democrats. I've generally voted for Democrats for most of my life, but I made the mistake of voting for George W (twice!) because I didn't like the alternatives.

    Regardless of what you call the 2010 health care law, most of us would agree that saving money is a good thing. USA Today reported a few days ago that the plan would save Medicare and individual participants over $400 billion over the next 4 years:

    If saving that much money can be construed as tyranny and socialism, then I'd have to say that I just became a fan of tyranny and socialism. My personal take on "Obamacare" can be found in the link posted below:

    Since you mentioned the Tea Party, though, I'll stray a bit from this topic to advise you that the Tea Party (as well as its benefactors) IS the problem. Although Michelle Bachman and some of her fellow Tea Party people have lost credibility, the Koch brothers and ALEC still have too much influence in our society.

    By the way, the "Mad Tea Party" is featured below:

    Your premise is that Obamacare will save us all money.  I can't swallow it.

    The Tea Party is not the problem.  The Tea Party is made up of people who work for a living, pay their taxes, and play by the rules.  Stop lying to the American people.

    Your research is well appreciated.  You, myself and countless others know the basic problem.  They might not be experienced in economics, however they know when the Representative system leaves them Not-Represented. 

    I believe in my readings that history does repeat and events are not random.  Our government has been bought and paid for.  I also know there are good leaders out there.  The problem is their voices are muffled with layers of issues that cloud the bottom line. 

    The corporate power will not shift to worker value in the Extreme Free Market, which we have been exposed over the last 30 years.  I remember when we had a Mixed Economy, and that is the phrase we used. 

    Changes are coming and hopefully for the better as the people see the greed does corrupt and will eventually buy any system.
