    That was back before his method of achieving that goal was killed by fear mongering.

    It's an improvement, but the issue isn't solved. They need to pass a Public Option plan, even if it is just in a bill by itself. I don't care how it happens, it just needs to happen for this issue to be solved.

    Thats OK...the pres intends to tax insurance plans to pay for the health care initiative...especially those cadillac plans.

    Well...not ALL cadillac plans. Not the unions plans for example...

    obama campaign ad, OCTOBER 08:

    "On health care, John McCain promises a tax credit," an announcer says in one of Obama's new ads, over images of families examining their bills. "But here's what he won't tell you: McCain would make you pay taxes on your health benefits, taxing your health care for the first time ever, raising costs for employers who offer health care so your coverage could be reduced or dropped completely. You won't find one word about it on his website."

    Carry on.

    It really is good news. A friend, who owns a small business, had her rates increase around 15% over one year.





    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    Another I told you so moment.

    Before everyone gets all giddy about taxing young people, lets remember that a great many of them are attempting to enter a depressed job market which reduces their lifetime earnings by a significant degree.

    Also older people have worked longer and have had a lifetime to accumulate earnings in order to pay for things like this.

    Have no fear my fellow young people, it's not over yet.
    We still have to finance the wasted money that boomers approved going out of the SS system.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's a great thing increases the pool of insured people which reduces overall costs. Pays for routine medical visits and we all know early diagnosis saves lives, reduces costs and gets people the medical treatment they need in a timely fashion.

    It's like the person who needs a brake job but can't afford it. If you catch it early usually it means checking the brake fluid and replacing the pads. If you catch it later then it's the pads the calipers the lines and the routers. If you wait way too long then it threatens your life and anyone on the roads life not to mention their vehicle.

    10 to 20 a month doesn't pay much off. Few even do that. Anything that begins leftist, btw, is not to be taken seriously.
