    Would be useful to know what the bill is actually trying to accomplish rather than bloviations from an opposition politician.

    It's trying to save the monolith known as the NHS. But fearmongering idiots on the left - through their mouthpiece media (the Guardian) - don't like the thought of someone actually fixing the damned thing.

    Sounds just like the left here any time anyone brings up fixing Social Security, Medicare, public education, (insert overly expensive and inefficient government bureaucracy here)

    Basically, yea. What started off as a well meant idea has grown into a monstrosity that is a massive financial drain on the country. It is rife with theft, mismanagement, bureaucracy and general incompetence.

    Too bad we are going in the opposite direction. Is it really about "health Care with Obama? Or control? I think the latter.

    There is a difference in fixing the NHS and gutting it for private companies to earn massive profit on the backs of the sick people.

    When even the freaking doctors are against much of these so called reforms, then you know that it stinks.
