well the dealio on this is the American tax payer looses, and the health care industry wins no matter what 'change' we get.

50 million uninsured that all the sudden due to the government insuring them? Sounds like a guaranteed 50 million new customers.

People don't get the prices will be the SAME, its just the tax payer will fund the previously uninsured. Plus the government will provide artificially lower costs to put private insures out of business, and then having company's no longer have to add that as their cost of employment. So do you think these corporations will pass these savings along to customers, or employees? Fat chance kids, that's not how the real world works. Its like your asking a wolf to go vegetarian.

So yea, millions spent by lobbyists to push more regulation, more bureaucracy, more control, and more Departments of whatever.

Seriously these people that think 'healthcare' is a huge debate while our sons and daughters are blowing other people to bits and getting blown up in a far away country need to get a grip.

Besides its a simple point of people have this insane sense of entitlement and that is the ROLE of government to provide everything from health care to education. Lets see how well the Dept of Education did on our youth the past 30 years, and how we're doing mentally, creatively, and socially as a country since its inception. And you a$$ hats want to get these same goobers in charge of 'health'?

People b*tched and complained when the "republicans" where in power how they no longer represented the people. Well the ironic thing is MOST of the guys that have been senators or congressmen got re-elected from both sides of the fence. Right and left hands on a dead corpse that used to be a decent place to live.

I can't believe that butt hole John Coryn got re$elected$, seriously that guy is a crook.

Right, change, right...

Every one is on crazy pills.
