Can We Afford Healthcare?

Even a simple plan that included basic services for children and some catastrophic coverage for Americans (who take reasonable care of themselves) is going to cost us a lot.

The Republicans have spent more taxpayer dollars than any other administration in the history of this country. They bankrupted the country in a fruitless war (we didn't even get the oil, sheesh), and now Bush is pushing to spend *another trillion* rescuing the banks that went under *because of his policies*.

Even Obama can't manage to clean up the mess these guys have wrought. I feel sorry for him. He's applying for a job to be President with the hope to improve our country with green power and education. What he's getting handed is a big pile of trash to clean up... that will take him 2 full terms of fixing Bush's mistakes and no time for improving anything.
