    Senate committee passes health bill, first to act

    WASHINGTON - The Senate health committee cast a milestone vote Wednesday to approve legislation expanding insurance coverage to nearly all Americans, becoming the first congressional panel to act on President Barack Obama's top domestic priority.

    There is no use in spending this tremendous amount of money without looking at cost cutting first.

    But don'tchyouknow they are going to save so much money on this program that it will pay for itself!!!???

    Yes, this is stunning, but the level of ignorance that dominates American political policy these days is rife with it.

    I have never been as pessimistic as I am now about our immediate future and I sincerely hope that the ignorant masses come to their senses in 2010 and get these complete morons OUT of power before the drag this country into 3rd world status.

    Can you actually write out a honest dissent using facts, evidence, credible sources?

    In regards to dragging this country into the 3rd world...you do realise that a lot of 3rd world nations have a better health care system than we have currently. The World Health Organization ranks us 37th - summary here

    It's not ignorance. They know exactly what they're doing.

    I'm sorry but the FACTS speak for themselves; over a trillion in deficit spending with much more to come and the result will be, although this is speculation on my part, to even further decline in employment and economic activity.

    If Government does indeed pass healthcare legislation, you will see a vast decline in the level on competence of service and LONG waiting times for even the most mundane affliction; which is evidenced by all those other nations whose citizens have longer wait times and pay HUGE tax rates.

    What part of Government spending money it doesn't have without an HONEST debate on how to pay for it do you NOT get?

    As for the WHO, I am sorry, but the United Nations has ZERO credibility with me and many others who have seen their failures too often to lend it any credence.

    If you add in level of care, technology and wait times, the US system super-exceeds anything in other nations.

    But I did enjoy Michael Moore's movie where EVERYTHING was FREE, have to laugh just typing this, and how GOOD Cubans have it, this one borders on hysterics.

    Carry on.

    They can't even get the government to admit the syndrome exists, because then the government would be liable to treat them, which would be costly.

    Between battlefield chemical hazards and experimental anthrax inoculations, the symptoms pile up. Civilian doctors can't get the medical histories because they have been classified.

    What is keeping the current Government from admitting the syndrome exists?

    My belief is that this issue is consistent with why we do not want Government managed healthcare; the Government is not acknowledging this syndrome because of what it will cost to treat.

    But hey, if the Democrats get their legislation passed, expect many more similar stories of care being denied due to the costs.

    Some Gulf War vets don't even qualify for VA bennies, much less get treatment for sand box shock.
