    One thing that I think is important to mention: If the individual mandate will only impact 2% of the population as has been reported, how will that lead to enough revenue for insurance companies to keep costs low for all of the people with pre-existing conditions that they must now cover?

    I hadn't even thought of that one.


    I have NEVER figured out why Republicans didn't jump all over government paid healthcare years ago. It's one of the few ways Uncle Sam can help businesses without it drawing the attention of the WTO - or any of our "free trade" friends, either.

    This is a perfect example of why you have no idea what your talking about. Insurance companies want you to believe they are struggling to keep people covered, when in reality, they are making trillions of dollars while you fight their battles for them. You are indeed a corporations dream customer.

    It's time to check you in the nursing home, pops. Your judgement is fading. Hopefully the GOP will allow you to keep your entitlements.

    It's not about "standards." It's about what power is granted.

    bluntly, no. because it will effect a much larger portion of the populace - since insurance companies lose the right to charge more for preexisting conditions, and since the penalty is only 2K, it creates a massive incentive for people to just not get insurance until something catastrophic happens.

    bluntly, if ever implemented (not that we have the money to do so), it would destroy the private insurance industry.




    hmmm.... wait a minute...... :

    No, that would be the silly strawman interpretation of what I said, not what I actually said.
