And 40 minutes in the car is not a long way to go to see a Doc. Try out in the say, Wyoming countryside, or fly over country in Montana. I bet its a lot longer than that. Still doesn't mean that Government should take over Health care.
    But I would never have known about them. The bumps where not painful, and he figured he was just wasting his time...but he had the time, and had the 5 bucks, so why not. I spent most of this year without health insurance, and it was simply not worth the effort to go and check out every ache and pain.

    Can you show where Health care was in the immediate spotlight during the repub control of the congress? No, we were busy fending off repeated attacks from libs at for most of that time weren't we? And if it wasn't attacks it was pure obstruction. Now all the sudden we should just slink into a corner and STFU? I don't think so.

    AS you will remember, the first time health care was brought into focus was back during the Nixon administration. The first really large effort to address the issue was during Clinton's administration, and never was realized. Then it was mostly shelved again, until now.

    I thought you said earlier it was ten bucks? Maybe not. In any case I hope he is doing ok, sincerely. As for going to the doc for every ache or and pain. You shouldn't do that anyway. That isn't what health care is. If something distresses you then by all means get it checked, but for "every" little ache? no.

    Yes, and even Clinton realized that he couldn't win the American peoples support of such expense, and forfeiture of rights with a govt take over, and he moderated. After that he did do some good things for the country. But, recently liberals seem to have this attitude that they are going to do things regardless of what the people are screaming. More or less they are flipping us the bird!

    He passed away from the cancer eventually, but had several more years than he would have gotten. Five or ten, I don't know for sure to be honest, it's an HMO type setup, it was in that range.

    Does this mean that health care reform should not happen?

    Health Care Reform should be just that. REFORM. Not Let's-pile-more-paperwork-on-top-of-our-already-failing-system.

    The Democrats aren't about reform, they're about socialism. They've been fighting for it for 100 years, Obama said as much himself.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
