    While most all of us agree that something needs to be done with health care reform--to bring medical insurance rates under control--most Americans do not want a government run program.

    So this came across the e-mail & I thought I would share it with you--:lol::lol::lol:

    Health insurance reform will pass in time for the 2010 election, and the GOP will remain in the minority.

    I think democrats are watching next months election Nov. 3, 2009--with democrat Corzine N.J in the fight of his life. If he loses--you will see an entire democrat congress back-off of government run health care. ---

    hi,

    The inclusion or disappearance of a government plan to compete with private insurers will leave one of the Democratic power-brokers basking in the credit '
    Medicare beneficiaries scared out of their wits that health care reform meant their own government-run health program would deteriorate have gotten a lot of coverage. Veterans have not, though it’s clear they share the same concerns.

    Thank you..

    Bzzzzz! Wrong, Medicare coverage has been declining to a long time now, for more than a decade it's been shrinking.

    However Obama has taken steps to actually TAKE money from Medicare to shore up his demands for other Government run health care. Money he wants removed from current legislation.

    So have many of the presidents, each taking more than the previous, which is the whole problem with Medicare (and even Social Security but that's a bit off topic). Not to say they are not raiding Veteran's benefits either, I believe they are. My point was, Medicare isn't as good as people seem to think. Got the booklet of what they cover now, it's less than half what Bush had it at, and the co-pays have almost doubled. At this rate it won't cover anything by the next election, unless they put all the money back instead of wasting it on their pet projects, no one will have any form of coverage. ;)

    Most Americans (at least according to the polls that I'm reading) want some kind of reform.

    Now how that reform plays out, is, I think, where the debate really is.
