    Instead of hijacking the "Republicans need to listen to our great Democrat ideas" thread, I will answer as follows:

    In order to regain their 2008 mojo, Dems need to move further to the Left.

    They tried being nice, maintaining Boooooooooooooooooosh tax cuts, kept a tight lid on spending and let insurance companies stay in business. Those days are over.

    It's time to get serious!

    Dems need to run on a 90% income tax on the top 1% (which will keep decreasing until its on all income above the poverty line)

    Dems need to take over the entire US healthcare system, close the insurance companies and medical colleges and Universities, that's the only way to control costs and insure everyone gets the same quality health care.

    Well, that's a start

    I agree we need to move to universal healthcare. The money we waste on Insurance Company middlemen could cut our costs 25%

    Interesting, the government could probably squeeze out the same saving by making computers and cars too

    Just make stockholders richer?

    Yeah, why pay into something like insurance when you can just take it from the Taxpayers, and the rich when someone gets catastrophically sick.

    American companies have to compete in a world market that does not burden its corporations with providing healthcare to its employees.


    Most provide it throught the state.


    This is why ours is such a mess.

    we pay the MOST and get not sso much.


    WTF is the right sooo insistant we burden American business this way?

    Better to burden the taxpayer with a system far worse.

    Ok

    So why do you make comments on healthcare if you don't know.
