    In addition billions are spent annually for illegals, 600,000 in my own country last year. Eliminate those costs, eliminate your misconceptions about taxpayers paying for people who can afford insurance and are paying their own bills and you will find this isn't the crisis you claim it to be.
    Who do you think pays for them? Seriously, the medical fairy?

    Whether many can pay is meaningless if they don't pay. And if they don't pay, the hospital raises costs, causing premiums to raise. I have supported that.

    BTW, if you quote something, it would be good to link it so others can see the entire article.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I know we pay for those that do not have insurance but the point is how many is that and is it as bad as you seem to believe? You don't know nor does it seem to matter to you.

    this bill does nothing to improve the quality of healthcare or lower the true costs of healthcare. The infrastructure is broken now and thus the ER's are overburdened due to the doctor shortage and illegals.

    Same tired old argument from you just a different day. Offer something of substance instead of your own opinions.

    The conservatives who hate the new health care plan are strangely forgetful that so much of it was originally proposed by Republicans....
    I suppose they were all RINO types?

    Not sure how much of this was proposed by Republicans nor does it matter. Govt. is too big, never intended to do what liberals want it to do, costs more than intended.

    Govt never grows during a republican adminstration?
    Did anyone ever document any doctors quitting yet? I suspect if any do, it will only be those who "quit" like I did my last job, I RETIRED...

    Tell me why you support this POS legislation that does nothing to lower the costs of healthcare, improve the quality, and grow the infrastructure?

    You seem to want so badly for the govt. to be something it never was intended to be and the question is why?

    Opting out of medicare is not the same as quitting medicine....
    I support the health care bill as long as it forces people to buy the insurance that they can afford. I know personally too many who say that cannot afford it, but drive new cars, have multiple cell phones, internet, cable TV, etc.

    Forty nine pages, and still no one has explained why knowing that all of their patients are insured would inspire half of the doctors in the US to quit medicine.

    Conceded: There is nothing in the health care bill to reduce costs. Making the deadbeats pay their own way should help spread the cost around a little, but expect premiums to continue to soar, just as they have been doing for at least the past three decades.

    If only we could have had a rational debate about what was actually in the bill, maybe then a real solution could have been found. Alas, our government is not into rational debates, nor into doing what is best for the country over what is best for the party.

    No, its not too big.
    Private enterprise has failed miserably with health care - primarily in that it has become too expensive.
    This was not a problem even 100 years ago, then, there simply was no health care to speak of.
    The question is, should all of the wonderful advances be available for the poor and the working poor, even the middle class..??????
    Government simply must step in and subsidize these costs, as the more advanced European and Canadian nations have done. The conservatives are holding us back.
