    Dodd's 65 and has prostate cancer. I wonder how anxious he would be to select the public option. I wonder if PBO has called him and told him to just take a pain pill.

    Irony is a MF'er.

    It is very common, and it sounds just awful.

    It's the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the USA. First is lung cancer.

    Would the test that detected Dodd's cancer been covered by the government insurance?

    I bet Frank Zappa would have something to say about this if he were still alive.

    What would Frank have to say? Sing, "Dynamo Hum"?

    It makes me happy to see Dodd so optimistic, since my father was just diagnosted with early state prostate cancer last week.

    Do any of you above who have made nasty comments about Dodd want to wish death on my father?

    It’s rather ironic that Senator Dodd has been inflicted with prostate cancer while at the same time he is one of those running around supporting socialized health care in this country. The survival rate for American men with prostate cancer is 81.2%. Take a look at the countries that have socialized health care, or what people like Dodd wish to refer to as the “public option.” In France, the survival rate of men with prostate cancer is 61.7% and in the U.K 44.3%.

    The Ugly Truth About Canadian Health Care by David Gratzer, City Journal Summer 2007

    Of course, Dodd wouldn’t be using the “public option” anyway. The Democrats’ health care plan is so good that the Congress exempted itself from having to participate in it.
    So you hear this news and the first thing you can think of is to rush over here and write a completely post that shows you have neither morals, taste, or knowledge. The reason the U.S. has higher cancer survival rates has nothing, got this, NOTHING to do with the type of health care.

    Boston Globe
    Critics of health reform frequently point to cancer as proof that American healthcare really is superior. And, it’s true, the US has, overall, the world’s highest five-year survival rate for cancer. But that’s partly a product of the unparalleled amount of government-funded research in the US - something healthcare reform would not diminish. Besides, it’s not as if the gap is as large or meaningful as reform critics frequently suggest. France (like a few other European countries) has survival rates that are generally close and, for some cancers, higher. Much of the remaining difference reflects differences in treatment patterns that have nothing to do with insurance arrangements and everything to do with idiosyncratic medical cultures. This is particularly true of prostate cancer, where a staggeringly high survival rate in the US seems to be largely a product of aggressive US treatment - treatment that physicians in other countries, and increasingly many specialists here, consider unnecessary and sometimes harmful.
    Got that? Let's repeat that again: Unparalleled amount of government-funded research. You know, kind of "socialistic".

    Epic fail with this thread, my only hope for you is you quickly lose your insurance, get diagnosed with cancer, go bankrupt and.....

    Seriously, is ignorance a badge of honor with you people?

    You should probably tell them how your father feels about government healthcare before they answer. After all, their sense of humanity appears to be based on political affiliation.
