    Most amazing thing is how quietly we all accept this.

    There is no incentive for government to be efficient.
    In private enterprise it is handled by going back and investigating claims. Not surprisingly people lie on their applications and claim no they never had a heart attack. After they have one and make a claim the insurance co will go back and investigate. If, surprise, the patient lied then they deny the claim.
    This is the source for the stories about denied claims. But somehow the fact that the patient lied on his form and failed to disclose significant information is never mentioned.

    Bottom line is, anyone who thinks the deficit will shrink under Obamacare is more credulous than a voter should be allowed to be.

    Cool. Let's do away with the VA, medicare, medicaid, Indian health services, USPHS, CDC, NIH, etc.

    OK, you braindead asshole, it is the Conservatives that have a fellow with 14 felony counts heading up Conservatives for Patient Rights. All he did was steal 1.7 billion from Medicare. Perhaps we should just prevent Conservatives from dealing with Medicare, and we would stop the stealing.

    Bottom line is the people doing most of the stealing are of the Conservative stripe, like Rich Scott.

    What needs to be done is just put all of the present Health Care for profit groups out of buisiness, and use only non-profits.

    Better yet, lets just vote out the Blue Dog Democrats, replace them with progressive Democrats, and vote out about 10 more braindead Rushpublicans in the senate, and about 50 more of the same in the House.

    Then build a real healthcare system based on what is really working in other nations like Japan, Taiwan, and Germany, just to name a few.

    I have been questioning all along their ability to manage any program. They have bankrupted social security, medicare, medicaid, the postal service, fannie and freddie, now some of you want to turn over 6% of our economy to these morons. You think we have fraud now, just wait until we do that. It's insanity and it will certainly lead to the bankrupting of the United States. Anyone ready to live in a tar paper shack? because that's where our children and grandchildren are going to end up if this nonsense doesn't stop.

    Health care needs reformed but it can ALL be done through legislation.
