    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

Insurance is for the car accident, the heart operation, the big stuff. Our health care costs so damn much because it's not a health insurance plan anymore.
    My labor force was 1200 people and I offered complete healthcare coverage for singles and family. I picked up 80% of the cost and got 50% enrollment for a PPO program. Most of the people were in their 20's and thus invinceable thus had no interest in paying anything for healthcare. That is the problem today, entitlement mentality. By the way, I never paid minimum wage and had an incredible incentive plan that would have made the healthcare free. Just goes to show the mindset of many.

    It's not the plan it's the entire healthcare system. It's not setup to be "health insurance" any more is my point. To answer your question, sure, a person could go out and get a high deductible plan... but that doesn't really change anything. My point is costs would be lower for everyone if the system were actually setup like insurance. People don't call their homeowners insurance every time they have a lightbulb burn out... but for most of us, when we go to the Dr. for even the most simple thing, we charge it on our insurance plan. See what I mean?
