In the end, one of 2 things will happen:
1) The government will make life and death health care decisions for us.
2) Things will stay as they are, with the health insurance lobby making the life and death decisions for us.
What I want to know is this: What in the hell happened to option 3?
3) The doctor and the patient making the life and death decisions.
Look in the garbage for that one. That is where both the government and the health insurance industry have put it. Health care has become just another racket. The Mafia are envious.

Check it out, official AHIP talking points memo leaked: yes mandates, no public option ever.

The PWC methodology maybe correct, but were the numbers given to them correct?
I would rather see a report from a totally independent agency or organization.
On the other hand, knowing that some kind of bill will be hammered out, I am at the point where I have a wait and see attitude. This whole issue is so confusing, so partisan and so full of misleading statements, examples and emotions that I am not really sure who to believe.
When it comes to big issues, I have learned to have such an attitude, instead of getting so emotionally wrapped up in what amounts to a feeding frenzy. I did that when 911 happened, turned off the tube, the talking heads, the partisan BS and sat back and thought, we're going to get ourselves in a lot of trouble if we don't stop.
