Yeah, cause the other stimulus worked so well, huh? These 30 million without healtcare are whom? Some choose not have healthcare, the young and bulletproof, then some that can't cause they aren't legal workers with papers and then those who don't work for whatever reason (don't want to or can't find a job) and then finally those who really can't afford it (but could qualify for gov't assisted care). But they all get healthcare anyway, be it free clinics, county health centers or simply using the ERs as their primary care centers.

I don't see any benefit to the economy, just more goverment spending, debt and corruption.
We haven't in any way, really, addressed fixing the healthcare problem with this law. In the end, it only reduces the quality of care and increases costs to all who already pay and even for some who currently do not pay. The biggest burden will be borne by the middle class (by costs) and by the elderly (by reduction in quality, timeliness and availability of care).
I don't see this as a stimulus except to the growth of our government.
This just hurts us all (.)
