    Please be specific. There are legitimate arguments out there, but screeds like the one you posted is weak debating. Anybody can do that. You can do better. What specifically is the reason you feel that we will soon be in Communism?

    Why do Doctors order unnecessary tests and procedures?

    Doctors, specifically their billing offices, have become experts in knowing what different policies with pay for without question. And they order non-invasive procedures and tests as a way to make more money...

    Cadillac plans will pay for most any thing. Upper GIs on advance Alzheimer's patients... Why?

    A doctor who supports health care reform told me another thing driving up costs is technology and new meds. Not the cost of the technology, but the fact that we can keep people alive much longer... The unintended consequences of really good blood pressure and cholesterol meds.

    That's my whole thing here. Find a way to pay for it in a struggling economy and I would say give everyone their own personal doctor. But it's not feasible right now. This was the wrong issue to tackle and at the wrong time. Srsly.

    Because it isn't as entertaining if you can't bring as much craziness to the table as possible when talking about issues. I was super bored and hungover one morning and for three hours I just listened to what people said about the bill. Probably only 3% actually hit on any real issue and wasn't some hyperbole.

    A mandate to purchase insurance from private companies is so far away from Communism it isn't even funny. If you can't discuss things in terms of reality you should just be quiet.

    As best I can tell, Tort Reform is a bit overrated.

    Summit Extras: Medical Malpractice | FactCheck.org

    Obama is right that medical malpractice doesn’t have a big impact on health care spending. As Republican Rep. Dave Camp correctly pointed out, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that limiting malpractice liability would "reduce the federal deficit by more than $50 billion." More precisely, that’s $54 billion over 10 years, according to the CBO. But CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf noted the savings would "reduce total U.S. health care spending by about 0.5 percent (about $11 billion in 2009)."
    It does not mean it is not worth doing, but the effect would be overall small according to the CBO.
