You know you don't have any good argument...

... when you argue that "the worst thing to do is nothing".   That's not an argument, that, as usual, is an argument against having an argument.  "No matter what I do it'll be better, so just let me do it."  Or, in other words, once again, "Shut Up".
"So I think it is good politics to pass this and to pass it as soon as they can. But I think the most important thing is, it’s the right thing for America. We just simply — the worst thing to do is nothing. The worst thing to do is to keep dragging around a 16.5 percent of G.D.P. health care system that doesn’t sent cover everybody — doesn’t get the right results..."  - Bill Clinton
You mean that wouldn't be worse than spending still more on it  ??? (because government social programs are always over budget and always expand 3 to 50 times their initial intent) ... which would thus make it a still larger percentage of the GDP, and the increase in taxes and mandated fees to pay for it would shrink the GDP, because that's what taxes do, making health care a still larger percentage of our GDP .... (for the math impaired a bigger number -- how much we'd be spending, divided by a smaller number -- the new GDP -- makes a bigger percentage).

In other headlines, I see..."The Fillibuster is Blocking Needed Change"

Needed?  The Right Results?   Who gets to decide these things?
