    so another demonization under false pretenses. Do democwats know of any other way to act? or is it all search and destroy?

    "Medical bankruptcies are an epidemic in the United States. Nearly 62 percent of all U.S. bankruptcies in 2007 were due to health care costs - and 78 percent of medical bankrupt people had insurance."

    Just read this article myself. If anything it is more evidence that a public 'option' will transform fairly quickly into the only 'option'. There are plenty of mechanisms that can help drive down the cost of care. National competetion for coverage for one. The malpractice insurance issue is another. That is a huge cost to physicians which drives up the price of services.

    Medicare doesn't have profits at all.

    What a pointless article, good work!

    Yeah willow...the truth and common sense have no place in the Health Care debate.

    Socialized Medicine, I mean the Public Option, I mean the consumer option, I mean the competetive option is a MUST.

    We MUST pass the bill now so we can impliment it in 2013.

    Plus it will only cost a trillion dollars and at the same time not add a dime to the debt.

    And its going to have awesome health advisory councils that decide if your personal worth to society is worth the care you need for a sickness....another bonus.

    I mean how can you be against this...dont you want everyone to have insurance? Only 14million or so americans will still be uninsured under the plan, that means for a trillion bucks we can cover almost half the currently insured!!! I mean c'mon.

    I mean didn't you read about how great government involvement in health care has been in massachussettes? The state is 3 years in and is starting to ration care now and is running a 2 billion dollar defecit from it. Thats AWESOME!!!!! The whole country should try it.


    Stop being so blind and ignorant...government involvement is ALWAYS good. Always. Just look at how profitable AMTRACK is.

    Look at how Social Security is out of money as the result of a ponzie scheme implimented by congress.


    We are From the Government, and we are here to help
