    I don't know, but I bet he knows how to spell rebuttal.

I would prefer a tax break to get insurance to emplyees by companies and I am very queezy about forced insurance. I am not in favor of flat level rate for both females and males since actuarially females cost us more money ( I have been in the insurance industry for 33 years) and I have split feelings about pre-existing conditions..

    Single payor is out of the question. Not here, not now, not in the next 5 lifetimes.

    I could expound more and more on this question but it's late and I have to be an Insurance Auditor whore in the morning. I run my own one man business and live off the insurance companies doing audits for them ...
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    I too am hoping for a much more moderate approach, but don't think such a plan has been proposed. I can't see the democrats not passing something after so many years of calling themselves the healthcare party. If they can't do it with 60 senators during a backward economy then... no they WON'T let that happen!

    What part of the suggested reasoned common sense bipartisan approach did you not like?

    You don't have a link, do you?
    Yeah, he apologized, but didn't retract the fact that he is wrong. Typical.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    That assessment is a bit premature. Time will certainly tell though.

    It's not premature, Joe Garbage did not acknowledge that he was wrong. Only for spewing in an inappropriate setting.


    And, he was wrong.

    We dont know he was wrong because the bill has not yet been implemented.
    Time will tell.

    Congressional Research Service: Illegal Aliens Can Receive Benefits Under House Health Care Bill

    "Treatment of Noncitizens in H.R. 3200, states definitively, "H.R. 3200 does not contain any restrictions on noncitizens - whether legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently - participating in the Exchange." H.R. 3200 establishes a Health Insurance Exchange which would provide individuals and small businesses with access to health care plans, including the "public option" to be managed by the government."

    How is he wrong? Can you link us to Obama's plan and show us where it clearly states that illegals aren't covered?

    Can't show in the bill where space aliens are not covered either, but I bet they aren't.
