    (1) National health care will punish the insurance companies.

    (2) National health care will "increase competition and keep insurance companies honest" -- as President Barack Obama has said.

    (3) Insurance companies are denying legitimate claims because they are "villains."

    (4) National health care will give Americans "basic consumer protections that will finally hold insurance companies accountable" -- as Barack Obama claimed in his op/ed in the Times.

    (5) Government intervention is the only way to provide coverage for pre-existing conditions.

    Nataline Sarkisyan, victim of a Bush "death panel"
    Link
    Excerpt:
    Ms. Sarkysian had leukemia, and was admitted to a hospital for a bone marrow transplant. There were complications and her kidneys and liver failed. Her brother donated a kidney. She was ready for a liver transplant (a relatively routine procedure), but her insurance company would not approve the procedure by claiming it was "experimental". In other words, a bean counter at Cigna made the decision that since they had already shelled out a lot of cash for the bone marrow and kidney transplant, that the cost of a liver transplant and followup care was just too high. The bean counter at Cigna effectively sentenced Nataline Sarkisyan to death. Cigna eventually reversed course following a public outcry, but it was too late. She passed away the evening that Cigna finally agreed to cover her procedure.

    The title of this thread shows on its face that the OP doesn't really care to discuss this issue. He's a flamebaiter.

    If you'd like to ACTUALLY discuss, come back when you're not insulting someone or acting irrationally.

    Posts like this make Baby Jesus cry.

    All that may be true, but it's happening is a whole lot more rare than it will be once the government bureaucracy is in charge of decisions with a bent towards cost reductions.

    Anyone's experience with bureaus and government agencies will suffice to demonstrate that. If you have had limited experience in that realm, your skepticism is understandable.

    How about tens of thousands of people probably wishing to die due to being left to suffer in excruciating pain because of a government decision to save money? That is what is happening today in the UK under their socialized government health system...
