    So requiring people to buy health insurance that they can't already afford in the first place solves this?

    Well, the public option sure would have made that easier, but there are previsions concerning cost aren't there?

    Wouldn't know. I almost cried when I tried navigating the 2000+ pages. It's all in technical jargon as well so half the time I don't know what the hell is going on in that damn thing.

    All legislation is written that way.

    It was written that way for a reason. All the angles, pork, and now unconstitutional measure are buried in a pile of swill.

    Consider this; the Medicare Law was 200 pages.

    We have let the Washington D.C. politicos run a muck in America.

    I didn't just talk about the military. We were also treated in the German (gov't run) health care system. Did you miss that part?
    What makes you think our gov't is going to run health care any better for non-military than it does for the military? Do you think you deserve better or that the military deserves worse?

    Dix... I would like to thank you and your family for the sacrifices made for our nation. You are correct, the government has a long and detailed history of running postal services, transportation, financial institutions, education, and much more in exceedingly poor manners.

    The military members and their families deserve our best.

    Not entirely true...The Constitution was checked by the Committee on Style so it would NOT be written this way, so the "common man" could read and understand, and interpret, the document without someone having to interpret the legal jargon. Oh, how the discernible have fallen.

    Thanks for that. I appreciate it.
    I wish we could keep what is happening in DC from happening but it seems like people are going to have to learn the hard way

    Perhaps, but try finding something newer that is written commonly. BTW, have you read that second amendment? Very poorly written. That's not a statement of any position on it other than it is poorly written.
