    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    I'm so tired of my elected representatives and officials continuing to vote to bring the government deeper and deeper into my life. Time to grab my guns and bibles...

    Nope! You just are ill informed in regards to health care economics.

    How the **** does having home owners insurance stop his house from burning down?
    Never said it did (so kindly refrain from putting words in my mouth). However, if a vacant charred house is sitting there for a year until it can be restored because my douche of a neighbor didn't purchase insurance.... It will effect me. You understand how externalities work?

    Yes, they would be able to afford it. The costs would drop dramatically, and people can make payments on larger bills.
    That all sounds really nice. Reality dictates something different entirely.

    No, those play a part in the use of healthcare, but not the costs of it. Except of course in the cases of those people sucking from the govt teat.
    Going out quite far on the limb? Given your history for faulty comments in regards to health care economics, i cannot take your opinion seriously. The market for health care does not behave in a simple supply/demand fashion. There more forces at work, in which you have neglected to define and/or comment on.

    Yes, I am.
    Not with the least bit of accuracy. All you provide are normative rants.
    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.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    This health care bill is crazy. The government is taking away our constitutional rights by forcing everyone to have health insurance. The question is how far are we going to let them go? We may end up like Canada with insanely high taxes. Then instead of the United States being a Democracy, were looking at becoming Socialists. Who knows how high they are going to raise our taxes, it's not fair for the people who work hard for their money now we are going to have to pay for people who didn't work hard enough. To me that just isn't fair.

    With this having the possibly of eroding more confidence in the US dollar, I think I need to give my silver dealer a call and make a big purchase.

    Oh this is just fun...

    Page 124 of the bill has language written into it that bars judicial review and suit against the federal government by private insurers if they take exception to the fixed prices the "Health Choices Commissioner" sets in place for procedures.

    Lawsuits against the Federal Government have never been very successful anyways, but this time now its going to be written into law.

    Wrong.

    What does insurance have to do with it? Your neighbor can choose to restore the house or not, regardless of insurance.


    That all sounds really nice. Reality dictates something different entirely.
    No, it doesn't.

    Going out quite far on the limb? Given your history for faulty comments in regards to health care economics, i cannot take your opinion seriously.

    Yes, I have commented on them. At length. I've made no faulty comments whatsoever. At the lowest level, Govt, insurance companies, and malpractice are the reasons for the high costs. Those initial high costs put upon people who couldn't afford them caused some people to neglect their obligations to pay and force the rest of us to pay for them, which only further drove up the costs. And the libtard's answer for this mess is to add more of the same that started it in the first ****ing place. ****ing brilliant.

    Incorrect. I've yet to see anyone disprove a single bit of it.
