    Only to a point, and few do. If you can't speak, and no one has access to your wishes, which is common in emergency situations outside the hospital, you get treated. Thousands get spent before anyone is aware.



    If they required a lump sum first then I wouldn't get it.

    And you underestimate my ability.
    Maybe. But I doubt it, but know most could not.

    I don't have a clue. Nobody does. In four years they could scrap the whole program and start over. I don't believe it is the end of the world like some.
    We have bigger problems that could ruin the country.

    Right. I think it will be a work in progress for some time.

    Who knows with all the spin and drama created by both sides? I do believe it's possible to create a good government plan, but the current bunch of bozos in government are not smart enough to come up with one.

    You must have missed the part about all the new taxes...

    Call me crazy, but I think it would be a good idea to get all that figgered out before making it a law.

    Congress is either too liberal or too conservative to make any progress. Yes that's what I said, even conservatives can be progressive.

    The right seems to be just preventing anything and everything, and the left is not being strong enough or just completely ignoring the right altogether.

    I agree that they could have come up with a good government plan, but Obama has made a stupid move in trying to be more "centrist," while its actually harming him more than being more liberal. If he were more liberal with this issue, we would actually get more passed.

    Seldom works that way. Waiting, as we have in the past, only means we do nothing. I realize some would prefer it that way. But for those who want reform, the only chance is to move forward, even if it isn't perfect now.

    It's always less than perfect. The push and pull often leaves us trying to get past how foolish we look.

    I think we all can agree that implementing broad tax hikes in a recession is a bad idea. So do you think that instead of plunging head long into an expensive program that is going to cost great amounts of money should be done right, instead of fast?
