    ACROSS STATE LINES

    This is the Right Wing-Nuts plan for healthcare for all. Allowing people to purchase private health insurance across state lines will not bring down cost. It will not because private healthcare providers cannot give affordable healthcare because they have to make a profit and they do this by cutting services, rationing services to the carrier. They cannot survive if they do not make a profit. That is how they operate. Government can provide affordable healthcare because they do not have to make a profit. Medicare and Medicaid providers do not make a profit. They just provide medical care.

    Allowing people who cannot afford to buy, even across state lines, will not work because private providers cannot afford to cover them for what they can afford to pay. Can private healthcare provide a family of four healthcare for $400 a month and not charge them high co-payments and deductibles? Absurd. A fantasy. Unreal. A fairy tale. Ridiculous, illogical, senseless and silly.

    A shame your absurd, unreal, fairy tale, ridiculous, illogical, senseless and silly rant has little to no grounding in economic reality.

    Defacto in-state monopolies, on what coverage may or may not be covered in the given states, drive up costs and drive down service, as all monopolies do.

    What is the government plan offering for a monthly premium for singles? Married? Families?

    In addition to the costs, what is the coverage being offered?

    Anyone?

    Are you kidding Save??

    The Clowns in DC can't even tell you that. They havent' read the 2,000 pages and they are so busy changing the clusterfuck they don't know whats in it. The one specific your going to find is that its going to cost way over what they are predicting and it will be run like medicare and medicaid. In the red.

    Quite serious in fact. I expect to be told how this bill represents quality care for ALL Americans; exactly what affordable coverage means in terms of premiums; and what is covered in the plans.

    Anone who votes for this bill without an exact understanding of those numbers and articulating them to their voter base should be thrown out of office at the earliest opportunity.
