    If the Government provides Health Care, whether spelled out in this bill or not, it will RATION the care. That is how it works.

    The Government can not afford to pay for everything for everyone, even if they took all our money. And in fact the research that backs up this health care bill out of the House spells it out clearly. Specifically it identifies the elderly and those under the age of 2 as being less important and so they will be the first to suffer from reduced services.

    Knowing that the Government can not efficiently run anything, I can promise it won't end there.

    By the way, all currently run Government Health care IS rationed also. That INCLUDES Military health Care. Active duty which gets the best treatment still does not have access to new procedures or medications until or unless the Government decides they should, a slow cumbersome process at the best of times. Medicare and Medicaid are also rationed.

    And I see NO ONE wants to discuss the obvious. So much for that approach.

    It's already happening. My insurance has changed for the worse, and my 75 y.o. mother talked to me last night saying her premium for her retirement health care, which she picked up from working years as a nurse at a VA hospital, increased from something like $90 per month to $130. Plus she pays $200 + for her med "co pays".

    In addition, I have medicare clients coming to my office in droves confused by the fact that they are suddenly having to change pharmacies and providers....and this is huge because here in rural America, that means driving hundreds of miles to fill prescriptions, if your local pharmacy is no longer on the "go to" list.

    It's putting our local pharmacy out of business, and they're heartbroken about it. We have 2 pharmacies in our area, and they've been outed. Which means my clients, who live in them middle of nowhere, now have to drive or be driven hundreds of miles out of their way. Not an easy thing for people who don't have cars or are unable to drive, who aren't familiar with the towns and pharmacies they must now go to, and are confused by the whole nightmare.

    Many of them will go without because of it, and die.

    All you cowardly Liberals running away from this discussion. And you have the balls to whine in threads where it is pointed out that rationing is going to happen. Cowards one and all.
