    This is what happens when people are overtaken by an irrational fear of change.

    That's so true, i had a conversation with someone who said that the rich have enough money and should have to give it away....she happened to be my boss, so i asked her for a smooth $50 since she makes more than me....of course she declined and the concept seemed to be completely lost on her.

    I have never, ever been "dependent" on government.

    If you believe Health Care should be a for-profit business, I'm sorry, but that train of thought leads to disaster.

    We had to pay out of our ass in South Africa for Health Care. And pay we did, I was an accident prone child.

    individual greed is the conduit that keeps prices down.

    the #1 problem today with health care is the system is designed in a manner where their is no reason to price shop. My own greed to keep more of my money doesn't exist in health care. i pay a deductible, and the overall cost of my care is essentially hidden.

    I agree, the problem is price, but giving the government control of it will not fix that problem, instead it will drive the price up. Just look how the cost of education rises, especially in private colleges...as the government continues to give more money out for grants and loans schools continue to increase price...hey why not, the government is just giving the money away! If you think the same thing won't happen with healthcare you're dreaming....not only will the cost go up, but you won't even care about it, becaue your healthcare will seem free to you, and hopefully the rich will pay all the tax's for you....

    lol, funny, but that's not when the price shopping would happen....the majority of healthcare visits are not durring emergencies...when you do have time to price shop.

    yup, as long as we have this awesome company plan for health care, i'm willing to pay for conveniance over service, because we don't actually feel the pain of paying for it. as soon as you have to rip those actual dollars out of your pockets your decision making changes instantly.

    Well of course.
    The Secular Messiah was only leading us from evil, as He promised.
    Shame on us.
