Health Care Reform - Rasmussen Reports
And still, it will get passed.
Yep. And the backlash against the Administration will be mighty.... and Obutthead can kiss goodbye to his 2nd term.... along with any other DNC candidate. And we will get 4 years of some GOP tomfoolery. And so it goes on.
Yep, it doesn't matter... As soon as the Democrats can figure out a way to buy enough votes it will be done... And the majority of Democratic voters who don't want the health care bill to pass will still vote Democrat the next election..
Anyone ever heard of BOHICA? Bend Over Here it Comes Again...
Some say that something will be passed because at this point Obama is prepared to sign just about anything he can get passed, but I think it will be passed in the same way one passes something indigestible and then flushes it away.
I'm for health care reform, but I'm not in favor of the plan that's being debated. Why? It's a hodgepodge of ideas that won't work smoothly together. Since the GOP doesn't want to play, the Dim's should simply craft something they can agree on (and that's the really hard part) and pass it. Screw the GOP that doesn't want to take its obligations seriously.
I think everyone with an IQ of over 30 know that we need reform.... what we seem to disagree on is what kind of reform. Personally, I think the current plan is taking a lumphammer to crack a nut.
And extending the current plans to cover +55 is just bringing single payer in by the back door. That is a very, very, very bad road.... of this I am certain.
Absolutely, that is why the Democrats went so quietly on the public option.
I agree. If you're going to go 'single payer', go all the way. It definitely won't work in a half-assed way. If you're going to go private sector, then go all the way. Bastardizing either system won't give us the results that we're hoping for.
As for me, I don't see any logical reason why health insurance is in the private sector. All the insurance companies do is pool our money, taking a percentage off the top, while using some of it to pay claims. I'm of the opinion that that can be done better with a single payer system.
However, if you want a private sector system, then you have to ensure that you don't have monopolies in each state. And since the GOP can't seem to look forward, they didn't even considering fixing the private sector system when they had all of the reins of power. Now they want to whine because the Dims are taking a stab at it.
