if that's not market pressure, I don't know what is.
that's sort of the point. that "30 million people added" figure is a joke. sort of like the notion that a half-trillion cut to the one program most important to the one constituency most likely to vote will occur.Would someone tell me how adding demand ( 30 million more people insured) will lower costs?
oh i'm thinking we're going to see some of the effects of those taxes real soon certainly in time for 2012The beauty of this bill is that it does not really go into effect in 2013. So we won't really know the consequences until after the 2012 elections. Probably a coincidence.

Or Iranians chanting Death to the USA?
Idiots trying to light bomb/shoes?
A segment of society that thinks cartoons are evil but beheadings not?
Pym Fortun and Theo van Gogh murdered my radical Islamists?
Or Saddam trying to assassinate a former president?
Or the bombings in London, Madrid, Tunesia, Turkey (all post 911)... or the scores of attempts we do not know about?
The beheadings of civilians?
Yeah... that's fear mongering.
Geez... I guess we shouldn't take the wacko's seriously.
May I suggest you take a beach vacation in Iraq or Iran. Wear an American flag t-shirt and bath towel... please.
But healthcare... 7% of our economy in government control... yeah... we need that... like a hole in the head... especially considering how well it has worked in Europe and Kanuckistan.

If we seriously want to control costs, then we all need to accept that some level of restriction of care needs to be practiced, whether by government or private insurers. We individuals need to accept that we can't expect society to be responsible to keep us living at all costs.
