Righties won't allow it. It's commienism!
do you really want the idiots in government in charge of your health?

I sure as fuck don't
Leaving companies in charge of our healthcare is going great!
Insurance is NOT health care
Lets eliminate it then. Waste of money.
I'm all for it
We need as consumers of medical services to know what those services cost.
Every medical service provider needs to list their prices for every procedure and then let the consumer decide where he will purchase those services

This type of pure market force will bring down medical costs especially of routine precedures

Sounds good eliminating insurance companies, no more middlemen making profits from sick people. What about when someone gets sick and can't afford it though?

Agree completely. That's why health care should not be a business.

It appears you have a wide variety of choices for permanent residence, but don't try to bring that nonsense here.

That is one of the issues.

Do countries really have the same issues with electing people that we do ?

I mean, look at the clown show we have now.

While I am conservative, I do believe there is a place for government in health insurance (not necessarily care), but it isn't universal or comprehensive.

Righties can stop it ?

It was the left that stopped the public option during the Obamacare debate.
Some were sell outs on the left, absolutely. Unfortunately every single person on the right was a sell out.
Just so you are clear....the left sell outs were the tipping factors.

BTW: Calling them sell outs is a hysterical.

The righties (as you like to call them) were elected by their constituents to do just what they did. In 2010, almost all were easily re-elected and many districts threw out their lefties and gave the House back to the GOP.

Since that time, they've been doing a good job of doing nothing.

No. The tipping factor was zero Republicans wanted a public option, some Democrats fought for it, all Republicans were against it.

there is no need to eliminate insurance companies
as consumer pressure brings the cost of medical services down insurance prices will also come down add to that more competition by allowing health insurance companies to sell across state lines and we will see even more savings

You obviously don't understand what a tipping point is.

You just know talking points.

When Obamacare hung in the balance, Rachael Maddow was going after the democrats who were getting in the way. She never touched the GOP....she knew they were lost. She ran a week long series on Bart Stupak when he threatened to hold it up.
