What's all the healthcare hubbub about? Unless I miss understood, we placed a .09% tax on 1% (3,180,000 people) to extend healthcare to 30 million Americans (10% of the population). : politics Also, the Heritage Foundation claims the health care legislation will lower economic growth by $706 billion. Which, if un-bias (and we all know it is not), still only represents a potential 5% loss to the economy. Why are so many people worked up about this. (I know I know, Fox News, CNN and MSNBC).

Library of Congress In November, Americans will have a chance to speak their minds. And there's one thing everyone should agree on: America just isn't working right now. It's not just Americans who aren't working. It's America itself, a country whose economy once worked for almost everyone, not just the rich.

The United States is in a very tough spot, economically and politically. The 25-year debt-fueled boom of 1982-2007 has ended, and it has left the country with a stagnant economy, massive debts, high unemployment, huge wealth inequality, an enormous budget deficit, and a sense of entitlement engendered by a half-century of prosperity. After decades of instant gratification, Americans have also come to believe that all problems can be solved instantly, if only the right leaders are put in charge and the right decisions are made. And so our government has devolved into a permanent election campaign, in which incumbents blame each other for the current mess, and challengers promise change. The trouble is that our current problems cannot be solved with a simple fix. HERE'S WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE ECONOMY... (And How To Fix It) HERE'S WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE ECONOMY... (And How To Fix It)

You posted two replies to my comment, so I'll combine both responses into one, to avoid an artificially branched discussion. The future can be impacted through our exertion of will in the now. But what is this "exertion of will"? Duncanconstruction comments on Reddit I am a professing Christian but I have my doubts, please give me questions to ask my pastor.

Here’s chapter and verse on a more-or-less comprehensive list of things banned in the Leviticus book of the bible. A decent number of them are punishable by death. Unless you’ve never done any of them (and 54 to 56 are particularly tricky), perhaps it’s time to lay off quoting 18:22 for a while? 1. Burning any yeast or honey in offerings to God (2:11) 2.
