    if's are for philosophers

    here in america, obamacare CUTS MEDICARE a full HALF TRILLION DOLLARS while exapanding its already enervated enrollment, entirely reliant upon it, by millions

    Capitol Briefing - Senate votes to keep Medicare cuts

    it adds millions more to medicaid, unfunded, burdening our already bankrupt state budgets by 200B

    Governors balk over what healthcare bill will cost states - The Boston Globe

    bottom line---obamacare's a bust

    Check out this site: Health Insurance - Find Affordable Health Insurance Plans and Buy Medical Coverage Online
    It will give you quotes for insurance. You can get a plan for 1/4 of that, you just won't have the doctor's visit...but you'll be saving around $5,400 a year so I think you'll manage.
    Thanks I will check it out

    Oh I disagree, during the 8 years of Bush, his administration would give the American people a slight nudge every once in a while. But never fully awakened them. No Obama on the other hand .. should be thanked. He rousted them, woke them completely up. After waking them, he has gotten them fighting mad..... and I think the 2010 elections kinda proves that point well. The people do care .... well except for those on the extreme left and they aren't happy because of his failures to the extreme

    I'm sorry you feel that way, because I think your thinking is somewhat flawed, I truly believe that folks on both sides agree healthcare “reform” is needed, they are disagreeing on what has been enacted into law, as being a good or bad program.

    In my opinion, it's a terrible bill that has been passed. I would feel that way about any bill passed that ignores the simple fact that 70% of people that have health insurance is happy with it. I don't care if the bill is by republican's or democrat's when you ignore 70% of the people to take care of others it's wrong.

    Do you realize, that for the cost of this bill, the government could purchase every uninsured person in this country a $5.000 deductible policy and save money? You're next argument would be they can't afford $5,000 dollars.... and I would say in many instances you are right, but look at the flip side of the coin, the doctors … the hospitals .. and everyone else involved in health care, would take only a $5,000 hit on any person, if there total bill happened to run into hundreds of thousands of dollars, wouldn't the health care industry be in better shape writing off $5,000 then the entire bill ?? now multiply this times the number of times it happens, then consider the savings to health care, could this not help drive down health care costs ?

    Right now we have some of the best hospitals, doctors and technology in the world, we should be proud of what we have, while realizing that we have problems, I just happen to be one that don't think we need to overhaul our entire system of health care to fix the problems we have in it. Thing like cutting waste and fraud out of the Medicare system would help, tort reform, allowing companies to sell nationwide are all things that would help, not cure .. but help, those things could have been done quickly, with support from both sides, would have cost no one anything, and would have started the process … What is wrong with starting with simple things that everyone can agree on.... that can do nothing but help?

    That's essentially what the public option was. The Republicans and conservative Democrats blocked it. I agree, a simple solution like that would save a lot of money.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    So, if people don't have to buy health care, but insurance companies can't deny coverage, how's that going to work?

    And if young adults show up to the ER with type 2 diabetes, do we just put them on hospice care?

    From now on, Medicare and Medicaid only covers hospice.
