    When bureaucrats and politicians spend other people’s money to create services they won’t themselves consume, only bad things happen.

    I have been gainfully employed since the mid '70's and the only thing that has affected my employer sponsored Health Care Coverage is the United States Federal Government (Congress). My 1st job out of school paid for everything, dental, vision and health. After that the personal cost to me has gone from $75 a month to now over $400 a month for the same family, and the only thing that has affected it is our governments involvement.

    Regulations are needed to some extent, that we have over regulated is an understatement. If the currently elected officials cannot find a neutral position that protects the American Workers, we need to find someone who does. D.C. is the front door to Hell at the moment...

    We don't need no state protecting us
    If we can't trust the insurance companies and hospitals to do what is best for us....who can we trust?

    There will always be people like you who drop your pants and grab your ankles for government.

    Do I need the government controlling car insurance like it does HC insurance?

    Nope. If my car insurance is not making me happy I go to another.

    Do I need the government controlling my local store like it does HC insurance?

    Nope. If my store is not making me happy I go to another.

    What are you afraid of?

    The Government has immense collective power. The power of 300 million people. If the government can offer a good or service to the public at a cheaper rate than they can get in the private sector....why won't you let them?

    Reagan was right, Medicare would lead to socialized medicine.

    Once government got a foothold into health care, they will never get back out and will continue to take more of it over until they have complete control.

    The problem them becomes, people have no advocate now. If government screws them, which they will, they have no one to complain to except maybe their local representative who will promptly ignore them.

    Then they can vote to get them out of office who will also promptly ignore them.

    Then they can vote them out of office who will also promptly ignore them.
