    Health care solution:

    Simply extend the bipartisan, gold-plated health care plan Congress enjoys to cover those they represent. They obviously agree on it, so the 'debate' can end. Little wonder they want an exemption from the plan they are proposing for ordinary Americans. Typical politicians.

    It's amazing to me how the Blue Dog Democrats and the Republicans along with the Teabaggers are advocating nothing more than wealthcare for billionaires. The Baucus plan stinks to high heaven as it just mandates more money for the health insurance companies off the backs of the middle class and the poor who cannot afford this.

    Regarding the penalty for not having health coverage; what if you use the VA Health Care System, will I be penalized for not having private insurance?
