    Yes, and if you can't afford the payment do they deny service? If you cannot make the payment who does, the state or the Federal taxpayer? Healthcare was a big issue yesterday and let's see if the Republicans follow through and defund it. Seems that more and more people see healthcare for what it is, a personal responsibility that is better handled at the state and local levels.

    I do not think it is advisable to Dr shop around for regular check ups. There is a worth in a Dr. knowing you and your history beyond just the charts. I do shop around for my meds though and the best I've found so far is at wal mart. I take seven different pills aday some twice aday.

    Well, if Dr. Know is charging rediculous rates or giving bad service, then changing Dr. Don'tknow to Dr. Know doesn't take that long...the point is more competition drives down cost, government control drives it up, and further mental devaluation of money drives cost up...

    Here is why Democrats in the Senate will compromise with Republicans in 2012

    United States Senate elections, 2012 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The elections last night sent the message and the "RED" States last night with Democrat Senators took note.

    In order to compromise, someone has to be willing to compromise. We'll see if anyone is more willing now. My hope is that both sides will see reason to actually work together.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
