    Fron the article?
    Good for him. Perhaps he sees the problem, insomuch as Government isn't mandated by the Constitution to be involved in the first place?

    My advice to the Senator, and Government (That created the trouble to start with)?

    BUTT OUT.

    Let the people, and the MARKET take care of it. For WE are the ultimate consumers of the end product, and will GO to where it is to our advantage.

    So let me get this straight-republicans favor private not for profit funded on the government dime but not government not for profit funded on the government dime? Well the first problem would be setting up two bureaucracies instead of one. Second problem is you would still have an unfair advantage with for profit health care.

    Really, the only difference is that republicans favor a more inefficient and costly system. Why am I not surprised...

    Oh yeah...look at how well the PRIVATE sector has done as of late. How many banks have we bailed out? How many car makers? And of course the health insurance companies have decided they know more than my doctor does. Works great!

    Don't buy insurance --use the money you spend on premiums to pay the doc.

    Don't know. I would looking through my health care and don't think it is covered. Let's be sure to ask for it under Obamacare...'loping of ones face to spite ones nose'...check!

    The GOP plan is wait till you are so sick you need emergency care at $1,000 a pop. The hospital will send you a bill and if you don't pay it, they get your car.
    Brilliant! :cuckoo:

    RUSH: I think there is a myth in this country about all the people who don't get medical treatment. I think that's part of the sales pitch here. I've talked to a number of doctors, surgeons, ER, intensive care, patient comes in, they get treated, whether they can pay or not, and they're sent a bill if they don't have insurance. And they make arrangements with the hospital to pay it off over time, and if they don't, then the car repossessors head out to take the car, what have you.
