Just wanted to post a reminder to stay within the rules of the N&CE forum on this topic. Specifically:

Quote:
We welcome most topics of News & Current Events. However, we do not wish to host political debate or political/celebrity gossip or speculation.

Incidental and occasional reference to politics is understandable. However, politics should not be the focus of the thread. Political or partisan topics will be removed at moderator discretion. If members continue to post in a political or divisive manner, we reserve the right to restrict their participation.
Lets keep the focus on heath care & away from any partisan bickering or posturing.

Thanks!

Rush Limbaugh said he would move to Costa Rica if Heath Care passed.

The real confusion? Why Costa Rica:
"Socialized" heath care
New president pushing carbon neutrality

Oh, I don't follow Limbaugh LOL so I hadn't heard that.

The actual text of the bill is over 2000 pages.

Someone want to read it and let me know what it means for me?

What I want to know is how many that voted on it ( either way ) actually read it.
