    If anyone has ever tried to make a purchasing decision re: Health Insurance, they know that there are measurables between Insurance programs. Anyone who has used insurance has noticed the same things.

    Co-pays for services and drugs, deductables, coverage limits across time, coverage caps, covered precedures and pre-existing conditions.

    The only one of these that I've heard discussed is pre-existing conditions.

    Co-pays apply to office visits, drugs, all proceedures, E-Room visits, Hospital stays and every other thing you can think of.

    This debate is being conducted at 35 thousand feet, but the care will be conducted on the ground. Any bill passed by the Congress must by detailed to the nth degree in what is covered and what is not. Details will make the dream a nightmare.

    What is hailed today by the Administration as the panacea will undoubtedly be the same ol' same ol' from Uncle Sam. I'm a tad suspiscious of the government running anything. We have all heard the Postal Service motto starting out, "Niether rain nor snow...", but that has changed a tad to the point today where our mail carriers won't get out of their vehicle to get to the mail box if it snowed.

    I can hardly wait to have this commitment applied to healthcare.

    Good points.

    I have seen government healthcare up close and personal after 20 years in the Navy. Does anyone remember the condition of the VA hospitals and the stink that raises from time to time? Does anyone know that Obama said he will pay for his new government run healthcare scheme by eliminating the fraud and waste in Medicare/Medicaid?
    The pro government run healthcare loons think that this new plan will be fraud free!!!!

    How stupid is that!!!!!?????

    I bring up the VA all the time in my healthcare discussions.

    Along with Social Security, Medicare, Free Care for Native americans as guaranteed under US treaties, underfunding cash for clunkers, lack of WMD and congress' willingness to invade iraq, and on and on and on.

    Look you ASSWIPE, Obama and the Democrats in Congress already CUT Medicare funds and are planning to do it again. Take your ass somewhere else. The only LIAR here right now is YOU. You either believe the bullshit or more likely just don't give a fuck about people's rights and the law OR the Constitution.

    Or maybe they cut some of the funds that people like Rick Scott were getting. Now that would break your heart, would it not?

    Only Americans could go so feral over an actuary argument.

    I miss my demented homeland.
