    Ok, then you are talking about an individual policy like i stated before.

    Has nothing to do with the topic.
    Has quite a bit to do with the topic.

    Are you claiming that all these millions of extra people with expensive illnesses can be covered without raising premiums???
    I am claiming that they are most likely not in my risk pool, and therefore i am not too worried.

    The CBO is very accurate when they are given accurate information. Pelosi had them use assumptions that were not even close to reality last week, so their numbers are inaccurate. Garbage in, garbage out.
    To each their own i guess....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Relax Digs... you're on the list. They'll get around to affordable college tuition reform in due time. Not soon enough, but much quicker than the obstructionists would.

    You think I really give a flying frap if the economy gets worse?
    It's in the tank already.
    I want my husband's health to get better.
    I want my loved ones to have access to basic medical care.
    Forgive me for sounding callous, but this is nothing more than an appeal to emotion. It does not belong in this discussion. Earlier in the thread you stated that you couldn't even get $55 dollars together for co-pay and prescriptions. Your problem has nothing to do with affording healthcare and everything to do with living outside your means.

    What do you spend a month on car payments? Mortgage/rent? Cable/Internent? Credit card payments? How often do you eat out? My bet would be that you could have extra money to live on every month if you actually tried to budget your expenses.

    Not picking on you specifically, your situation is the same for the majority of Americans. People live outside of their means and it's not my job to help them financially when they can't figure it out for themselves. Trust me, if I can figure it out at 25 years of age, anyone can.

    It's a misrepresentation of what he meant. The "people he was talking about were the "greedy people" who exploit the health care industry and not "we the people".

If you cannot debate this topic with civility and rationality, and feel that the only way you CAN is to either gloat, or whine, remove YOURSELF from the thread. You are doing NOTHING to help with your position, either pro- or con-. Take some responsibility for your own behaviors.
    Hey, I have broken another DP record. I don't think I will ask for applause this time, though.

    and yet corporations, as evil and vile as they may be, cannot force a citizen to do things against their will. They cannot take away your liberties. They cannot take away your money. Only government can do that (and they do it to the thunderous applause of fools like yourself).

    This type of whining merely validates its congruence with reality (and if I'm not mistaken, this is like the 3rd time you've whined about it).
