    So tell me...how does a private company make a profit out of taking care of old ladies with cancer?

    I believe the same argument the Republicans were making previously about "death panels" is exactly what they are inviting into with Ryancare.

    There seems to be a contradiction between providing the care these vulnerable people need and making the profit that comes from not paying for the care these vulnerable people need.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    A company's ability to make profit enables it to make the innovations to provide more care to more people, bub.

    Billions are made by private corporations taking care of old ladies with cancer.

    Nice bumper stick chick, but present some actual examples.

    Just one or two.

    I'm tired of these "we're for freedom!" answers you far RW types like to spew.

    You're always wrong.. about everything... and with this post you're still batting 1,000.

    Keep up the good work.

    This individual's post is a prime example of the "We're for freedom!" response.

    Lot's of noise and bluster... absolutely NO substance.

    Shocking, another one of your posts that offers nothing beyond insults.

    Don't waste your time explaining anything to these fools. It's a very simple concept that they frankly, can't get their tiny little minds around.

    Ooh! I know this one!

    How about: Dropping people from their policy when they get seriously ill and then forcing that person to sue them for coverage and then dragging out the trial and settlement for years and years until the person either gives up or dies. VERY innovative. Douchebag parasites... We must have a public option... government or not, we must.
