    Dude, under the House Bill that passed and the Senate Bill that is being considered, the only thing that will we taken care of by the government is some of the cost of health insurance premiums of some of those with low incomes.

    The federal government is the reason WHY health care costs are so high

    Explain why you believe only one of the problems with our health care system should be addressed.

    I know exactly what it looks like. It looks like stricter regulations on the insurance companies, the government taking over big things like cancer treatments, diabetes, organ transplants, etc, and leaving private insurance for things like colds, prescriptions, broken bones, standard sort of things. In that way, you remove the biggest monetary drains from the insurance companies, which allows the cost of private health insurance to drop and the bigger things, much of which is the basis of the "pre-existing condition" scam run by insurance companies is taken out of the market forces and supplied via government.

    You ain't gonna get that through the government though, and that's the real problem.

    I am not saying only one problem should be addressed. But could we possibly address one at a time, so that we can know and understand what is being done?
