    And even if the state handled it, though few have, it would still be along the same lines, presenting the same solutions. Not to mentions states can opt out by coming up with their own plans. Perhaps you should spend your energy arguing your state should step up?
    It doesn't seem to be the problem in my state as it is yours but in my state citizens accept personal responsibility. Maybe you ought to look up the definition and stop diverting from that real issue.

    Do you know where my state is?

    Reform calls for personal responsibility. It requires those who can be responsible and get insurance.

    Jetboogieman,

    You will need to check back on May 7 when the April employment data is released. FWIW, the March employment report stated, "Employment in health care continued to increase in March (27,000), with the largest gains occurring in ambulatory health care services (16,000) and in nursing and residential care facilities (9,000)."

    Still waiting for where the Constitution forces people to buy personal responsibility issues? Insurance is available now to millions who choose not to purchase it. No one needs this govt. POS to create another entitlement program. Different day, same story from you.

    Keep buying what the govt. tells you and all you will end up with are higher taxes and more debt to pay for.

    So people will be forced to buy insurance?

    The IRS will be the enforcer sort of.

    While the IRS can impose liens or levies, seize property or seek jail time against people who don't pay taxes, it's barred from taking such actions against taxpayers who ignore the insurance mandate. In the arsenal instead: the ability to withhold refunds from taxpayers who decline to pay the penalty, IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said this month.

    Still, compliance with the health reform law will be largely voluntary, says Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University. "By taking criminal sanctions and liens and levies off the table, the IRS' hands are tied, to a considerable extent."

    The IRS is "being put in a position where it will be sending notices that will annoy people" and not much else, says James Maule, professor of law at Villanova University and author of the tax blog MauledAgain. "It's basically designed for failure."

    The court will settle this one. You don't have to accept anything anyone says. There will be a ruling.

    You are accepting Administration claims that this will cut costs when logic and common sense based upon the details in the bill and history says differently

    Who's history ?
    Do away with all of the insurance and prices/costs will drop, this is common sense.
    To be truthful I neither believe the Democrats nor the Republicans. Politics and the truth are as oil and water.
    But, I'd sooner believe the liberals as opposed to the tea-baggers.

    I see, so in spite of historical data as to the failures of liberal social programs you still believe liberal rhetoric? Now that truly is funny. Some people simply want to be made a fool of.

    Interesting how the resident geniuses here are quick to ask for an accounting of doctors leaving the business due to a healthcare bill that hasn't even gone into effect.
    Interesting how you either unintentionally, or purposefully, misread the survey results. Notice the keyword I highlighted?

    "46.3% of primary care physicians (family medicine and internal medicine) feel that the passing of health reform will either force them out of medicine or make them want to leave medicine."


    And you have heard the HCR already passed didn't you?

    Where is the mass exodus from the practice?

    Where are the death panels?
