    Those on this site that seem to find something wrong with all proposed healthcare reform are not small business owners trying to access affordable and good health insurance. The insurance companies take full advantage of an opportunity to make higher profit on a small insurance pool.

    What are the stonewalling idiots on this web site doing for insurance.

    I am guessing several are living at home and are still on their parents insurance. The problem is they are 45 years old.

    Yup.

    And I know some here who do just that. (or live off the government)

    I'm a small business person, and the Health Insurance premiums are killing me! My colleagues face the same trouble. It's just become ridiculously expensive.

    when I had my own practice, it cost me $2,100 a month for health insurance for me and my family because as a small group, it probably costs three times what being part of a large group does.

    Your wrong Fudd.....I am insured fully. I have Tri-Care Prime and Tri-Care Dental and I pay about 500 dollars a year for it.

    I read in that HR3200 or whatever the number is....small businesses will be exempt from providing health insurance for their employees because of the smaller profit margins they operate with.

    For once I totally agree with you Elmer, but I still think that we would all be better off with a private health care fix and not a national one. They need to form a large pool so that small business can join, that can be very easily done, it won't run up the deficit, and it won't cost the taxpayer a dime. It's called competition, these a other ideas will correct the health care INSURANCE crisis, but to involve the government in a system that involves 6% of our economy is insanity. They have bankrupted social security, medicare, medicaid, the postal service. What makes you think that they won't bankrupt this system to. Should he get his version of this bill passed your health care system will resemble the aftermath of Katrina. You will have the compassion of the IRS, the efficiency of the Postal Service and a response time of Katrina by the feds, it will be a disastor in the making.
