    This guy still doesn't get it. We want comprehensive bipartisan healthcare reform....NOT HIS ONE-SIDED SPECIAL DEAL FOR UNIONS.

    Just more bromides full of sound and fury and meaning nothing except that his Ego Must Be Served.

    I got the usual sensation of throwing up a bit in my mouth while listening to him.

    Are you expecting anything like Ethical Consistency from him?

    I gave up on that long ago.

    I still don't see anyone addressing real healthcare issues, only working to enrich insurance companies.

    As I posted in another thread, why is it that when I pay cash for services, I end up paying about the same amount as I would pay for a deductable if I use health insurance. before i started going to Mexico for treatment, I was paying cash in California. I had health insurance, but when I was diagnosed the company I worked for let me know I was too expenseive, and cancelled my coverage, then terminated me.
    The fact is, when I was forced to start paying cash, the cost was about the same as the deductables I was paying.
    The fact that the defensive medicine practices almost killed me led me to refuse to get treatment in the USA, but that is another story. I also could not get the holistic care in the USA that has helped me.
    The question remains however; How is forcing everyone to buy insurance making health care any cheaper when the price is different if one pays cash, and those costs are comperable to the deductable one pays with insurance.
    Isn't this just a gift to the insurance companies?

    That thread is here;

    Aw, what's the matter?

    Is he actually trying to get this through without the "party-of-no"'s consent?

    Are you all worried about your poor little corporate interests?

    Did your temper tantrum not work?

    Poor right-wing lunatics.

    Yes, it is. It is not Health Care Reform - it's insurance reform. Big Business often likes the government to step in and implement regulations (and their lobbyists often write them). ObamaCare will protect insurance company profit margins by continuing to define down the standard of care while keeping prices high.

    We'd all be better off paying for our routine care with money saved in HSAs, with surpluses rolling over and accumulating over time - supplemented by catastrophic insurance.

    Insurance as it stands now is required to provided services which the majority neither want nor need, but are forced to pay for, such as psychotherapy and chiropractic care.
