    According to the constitution, health care is a state issue. Hopefully the pubs can see that.

    Sadly, they don't have an alternative. I'd have a lot more respect for them if they did.

    But the way things are currently, the Democrats suck but the Republicans suck way harder.

    There are two alternatives; go back to the status quo where the cost of healthcare was increasing at a rate of more than 10% per year, or go to single payer. Something tells me cons don't want single payer.

    Honestly, I wish we could remove employers from the equation and tell everyone they had to pay for their insurance on their own. I am self-employed, so I understand the true costs. I would love to see what would happen if all of a sudden, every family had to cough up $700 to $1500 per month just to keep their health insurance. Can you imagine the outrage. People would be taking to the streets with one protest after another. Any idea how far away from single payer we would be?
