    Evidence? Please explain.

    And please remember that companies making a profit is the American way. Bureaucracy is responsible for a great deal of the costs.

    Evidence based medicine. Best practice. You know, science.

    Why are you assuming that? I went without insurance for some periods of time. Had to go to an emergency room once - they have sent me a bill, and I paid it. Nobody was freeloading.

    Most people who constitute the burden on emergency rooms are the poor who are not poor enough to qualify for Medicaid. So, expand the coverage by Medicaid, if THAT is your favorite problem, don't force people to buy a product they don't want at prices they cannot afford.

    Right now, I have an individually purchased catastrophic insurance policy that will become substantially more expensive, thanks to the "reform". I can afford it, but for many people the increase will make all the difference: they will simply drop it, and deal with the IRS in a year. Our "liberals" might soon discover that surprising numbers of their ungrateful subjects don't actually like to be coerced into being mugged - after being defrauded.

    You have to love a president that says, "we are working very hard to fix it". Uh, what would you say if you were a brain surgeon. When we hire a contractor to remodel a room we don't wan?t to hear that remark now do we? All politicians lie, that is why we vote for them but when the screw up is of a magnitude never witnessed before in the insurance industry is there any room in this lying pig of a president where he would say to us "I am a stupid, pathetic buffoon and I am resigning this office effective today so the highly astute and brilliant scholar Jo-Jo Biden is you new leader".
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Arguably, insurance is detrimental.

    Both bloated government bureaucracies and health insurance companies act as expensive and intrusive parasitic intermediaries in the current setup (which the Obamacare deepens and cements).

    In a rational world, government would restrict itself to direct subsidies for the poor (or for everyone, depending on the structure of subsidy), insurance companies would offer policies covering only events of less-than-100% probability (not routine medical expenses), and the actual health care market - between the patients and the doctors, nurses, drug makers - would take care of the rest.

    But healthcare IS essential to survival for many of us. How can you not know that?

    80% of Americans already HAD healthcare prior to the government deciding they knew better as to what was best for them.

    You just made the same dumb argument you entered the discussion with. Again, health care and health insurance aren't the same thing.

    No, 100% of Americans had health CARE, 80% had health INSURANCE. There is a mountain of difference in the two.
