    I'm not trying to insult anybody here. I really am not. But if you are regularly watching C-Span can I suggest you take up a hobby? Get outside more often? Go on a date? Seriously, I'm into politics and I have on occasion watched C-Span for an important vote or event. But "watching" C-Span regularly could be a cry for help!

    covering pre-existing conditions screws the entire concept of insurance

    wtf would i buy insurance if I can wait til the doctor tells me I need a kidney transplant or brain surgery?
    My dear boy, its not that simple. People change insurance polices for several reasons. Often children are on their parents insurance. Some, like me, got my own insurance when I went to college through my school. Then when people graduate they begin working and get on the insurance plan of their employer. Some people go to grad school and have to switch insurance companies to whatever company is working with their new school. Even after people are in the work force, some quit working for a company and start their own business and then have to pay for insurance out of pocket. Each time one switches health insurance, the new company screens for preexisting conditions and it is not uncommon for people to get rejected based on this. So again, what is your suggestion to get these people coverage?

    I know that this won't pass, but it's sort of sickening how insane the Republicans are being on this issue. The fact is that the majority of Americans not only want reform of the healthcare system, they need it. The Republicans are basically arguing for us to go back completely to square one on this, which is absurd. Not that I think the healthcare reform was decent - it sucked - but it's better than where it was previously at, that's for damn sure.

    Now only if they could offer a single payer option...

    Because other people NOT having healthcare will affect you and will cost you... under the current conditions. You end up paying either way, and there are far more controls to this payment if there are contributions by everyone. I'm sure you don't like that, but it's accurate. No one lives in a bubble.
