I AM WAY TO IRRESPONSIBLE AND STUPID TO BE TRUSTED TO DONATE MY OWN MONEY.

    I can imagine that pharmaceutical companies are drooling at the thought of mandatory insurance.

    I said this before but should repeat it. While I was out to visit my folks last year I met some of the new neighbors. The local private hospital/clinic decided that the 80 year old Alzheimer mom of the neighbor needed heart surgery and a pacemaker to extend her life for another 15 years. The poor old woman does not remember how to dress herself. While we visited with mom's new neighbor the mom laid there on the couch. Every fifteen minutes or so the neighbor would go over and help her mom get her blanket and pillow straightened up for her. The neighbor said, "This is terrible. We may not live another fifteen years to take care of her." The neighbor's husband is recovering from cancer and she has had some health issues.

    Are you suggesting the heart surgery and pacemaker might not be the best thing for this 80 year old with Alzheimer's?

    I agree that the pharmacuetical industry and private insurers are going to love the insurance mandate, especially with no public option from the gov't. What an incredible winfall for the insurance and drug making industry!

    Fraud is a serious issue. More mechanisms need to be put in place to prevent or catch fraud.

    I'm suggesting that the family and the woman should be consulted prior to a clinic/hospital making a unilateral decision as to whether this should have been done or not. The clinic/hospital did this without consent.

    I think she might be!!!

    Of course if the women has Alzheimers she probably won't live another five years, let along fifteen years.

    So you want her to have a "care" meeting, or meet with a death panel(which is what the right likes to call the meeting you are talking about)?

    So doctors should confer with their patients and their family as to the best route to take regarding their care, especially when the patient is very old and sick.

    Care, rod, you are getting dangerously close to, "killing grandma" with your talk of counciling and what not.

    This 'public option' stuff is just so much shit.... The Pharmas have looked at what happens in 'single payer' countries and realized that - even with a public option - they're still gonna be making money. We will eventually have a single payer system.... but everyone that can afford it will not only pay into the single payer system, we'll all be taking private insurance because the single payer system will be crap. And when you look realistically at countries that have single payer, and look at the size of our country, and the price that we'll all be paying to 'take care of the poor people', maybe.... if you're really smart and can do math.... you'll be as afraid of this scenario as I am.
