    What a twat. It doesn't matter that the american people made it clear that they don't want the socialist health care. Pelosi wants to shove it down our throats whether we like it or not.

    Pelosi: Obama’s Health Care Appeal “Very Powerful” And “Helpful To Us” | The Plum Line

    Best of all, a striking quote from Pelosi underscoring her determination to get health care done:



    “You go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”

    they should just go single payer and get the insurance companies out as there is no reason for them. this alone would cut costs as doctors don't have to fight with numerous insurance companies and all the bullshit they pull as they attempt to not pay for services or reimburse properly. pharmaceutical companies should then be clamped down on for their overpriced goods and gouging of doctors because tehy aren't regulated.

    What in the existing bill is socialist?

    It provides for private companies to insure Americans

    In its current form it is no way socialist.
    However, it does not address the issue of rising healthcare cost.
    So, in essence, it is another entitlement program.
    Be honest and let the people know it and maybe it will get support.
    People are not arguing healthcare reform...they are sick and tired of being told one thing when it is another.
    It is an insult to the intelligence of the American People.

    Seeing as we employ them (congress) I have a question...
    How would a company owner react if he found out one of his employees was misleading him or her...even if it were in an effort to generate revenue for the company?

    The problem with the current bill is that it doesn't address the problem The cost.

    They should start from scratch and go after that problem by letting the ins companies compete across state lines. Competition is always good. The free market will work if they only let it.

    One of the other major things they should address is Tort reform. Not all law suites are bunk but some are. They force doctors to carry big insurance polices. These doctors pass that on to their patients. That won't be easy as the trials lawyers throw money left and right whenever tort reform comes up.

    I'm sure there are other thing they could do. Take the problems item by item and see what they can come up with. Just sayin.

    Tort reform is nice until you are the one who has been injured. By all major analysis, it will provide minimal savings to our overall healthcare bill. But I think we should put it in their to shut the Republicans up.

    They will still vote NO

    I'd like to ram something down Pelosi's throat. Like a pair of rolled up socks.

    Tort reform being a part of what is needed.. to reduce some cost and to keep the frivolous out of scale lawsuits out of our courts... add to it increased competition by reducing regulation, bringing forth an era where ANY organized group can solicit for and offer group plans (leading to more options and competition, which is a GOOD Thing), etc...

    Obama and the DEM's plan is a red-tape filled piece of shit entitlement program where taxpayer dollars will be used to provide, subsidize, and operate systems over people's personal care and personal responsibility
