    An AP poll shows support is becoming more and more iffy as well.

    Why do they want to tear down then entire structure when MOST Americans already have, and are happy with, their health insurance? Why don't they just fix the broken parts? We all know the answer to that one. Control.

    Why are they even considering this POS when unemployment is over 10% and likely to go higher? Promises that this will save money are so absurd no one believes them.

    If they want to save money in Medicare by cutting waste and fraud, why they hell are they waiting for a bill to do this?? It's all bullshit, 100% pure.

    Because, they know better than the unwashed masses what's good for them. (I guess that would be good for the elitist, who the f cares about the masses?)

    "You have given out too much reputation....."

    It's what makes me laugh about the health care debate. That if we don't support this plan, we hate the vulnerable, we don't care about the less fortunate. Not true of course, we just think there's a better, easier, more cost effective way of fixing the broken parts - straightforward stuff that will not take us into a 'nationalized' healthcare - that will not hand more control to people who have proved, time and time again, that they cannot be trusted.

    And yet, we are the bad guys..... Cuz Obama wants to save us.... we just don't want to be saved.

    As in opening it up so the insurance companies can compete against each other countrywide. The free market will work if they let it. You and I and every company looking to provide healthcare will be looking for the best they can get at the cheapest cost. Public healthcare will not be cheaper. It just another way to spread the wealth. Fix the problem, Cost.


    Was watching the news last night and apparantly the German Govt is looking to get away from National Healthcare. Don't know how true it is but I can sure see why.

    How does that help those who are dropped or outright denied insurance?

    Not true at all.

    Really, you can see why? So tell us why? Why would they trade a system that delivers results superiour to what our system delivers for less money?
