    Anyone who has been working for the last 25 years can see how much more healthcare costs and how it is becoming unsustainable. Employer funded health insurance used to be a throw-in benefit. It didn't cost much and employers picked up the tab.
    Now, employers are insisting that the workers pick up more and more of the tab and are looking at ways to not provide healthcare at all.
    If we do nothing today, just wait ten years and tell me how happy you are with your existing healthcare

    And every proposal from the Democrats will make this problem WORSE, not better. This is why the states are threatening to sue to block its implementation.

    The health care bill does not call for reductions in health care costs. It calls for affordable health care. The only conclusion you can come to is Congress considers present costs acceptable and understands it will grow. They just want to reduce the rate and gain control over the industry and the citizenry.

    I haven't heard anyone who has said we don't need reform; no one disagrees with that. But what Dems are shoving will not solve the problem. They're using accounting gimmicks to make the numbers fit their model. Guess they thought it worked so well for global warming for so long that they could do the same thing with this and hope that it passes and is implemented before anyone is the wiser.

    btw, how will this health care be run, which government model will they be using? Amtrak? Social security? Medicare? Medicad? USPS?

    YOur so right.

    The Govt track record on anything is lousy. Everything they have a hand in ends up costing way more than was predicted.

    Oh yeah. Lets let Govt run healthcare. Hell. I wouldn't trust these Clowns run a popsickle stand. I sure as hell wouldn't trust them to run my budget either. Jeeze.

    Getting rid of Medicare and Medicaid means Obama wants to kill off old people AND the poor. Fix Medicare first and leave our health care system alone. If they can't run Medicare properly only a fool would think the government could run all of health care.
