    I wish someone could tell me what the "takeover" is...

    Both bills EXPAND private coverage. That isn't a takeover of anything, at least not by the government.

    Maybe Republicans and their supporters will remember this the NEXT time they decide not to help in crafting important legislation...

    I know the country will remember that the Democratic Party makes a joke of its name.

    It's called PROGRESS. Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.

    Anything passed by such tricks will be challenged in court or repealed when the opposition party takes over.

    The Dems will never have this via tricks.

    As in the way they said they wouldn't take over banks and auto companies....they really don't intend on taking over the health insurance industry.

    The primary cause of premium increases is the fact that Medicare refuses to pay. Same thing with Tricare or any other government health insurance provider. The costs have to be off-set by raising rates on private insurance providers. I'm finding this out first hand as we speak.
