    No, I'm assuming that people are being dropped for legal reasons, otherwise, we would be seeing lawsuits requiring insurance companies to compensate people for damages.

    Do you have a group insurance plan (or are under 30)? I'm not trying to be snide, but you (and ttwtt78640) don't really sound like you've thought about any of this from the perspective of someone who's had to deal with this from the other side of the tracks, so to speak.
    I am over 50, and I carry health insurance through my employer. The side of the track that I deal with the issue from, is that of a health care provider.

    Well when you pass medical school and pass medical exams im pretty sure your going to be skilled no matter what, even if you are not making 3 mil.

    He is providing a valuable service, and has worked his ass off to get through med school, at a very high cost.
    Yes.....

    His malpractice insurance is expensive, his office expenses are high, and he puts up with a ton of **** off hospital administrators and some of the patient population. It's a thankless job, and only someone who has true dedication can do the job well.
    Ok.
    Still people who work under socialized medicine still make a **** ton of money. And under a lot of those problems you listed will be covered and taken care of by the gov..

    And plus wouldnt you want someone operating on you who is a doctor want to be a doctor because of the enjoyment and they care about being a doctor instead of wanting to be a doctor just because of the "profit motive" and out to make a boatload of money?
    people that live in this country have better health care the the wealthiest people had 30 years ago.

    right now you are probably saying, so what. good. That was my initial response when you mentioned doctors still make damn good money.

    A victory today ... that for the 250 million of you that have insurance ... they cannot longer boot you off when you get sick or raise your premiums so they are no longer affordable!

    We can now keep our children on our policies until they are 26 and through college and beginning jobs ...something that probably kept millions of young adults from being uninsured and save tax [payers millions in the event those uninsured would have had a catastrophic trauma or medical.

    This was a victory for the citizens of the United States of America!

    And this is the illogical, biased, slanted premise that you are expecting everyone to play under and is the reason you're not getting the reactions you want.

    One can think that the overall act...the one that includes a ****ton more than just protection from rescission...needs to be stricken without thinking that the laws regarding health care as they were established in 2008 is what we need.

    It is possible to believe there is good and merit worthy things in this law while still thinking the law as a whole is bad. The question is how much of the bad is bad, how much of the good is good, and how likely is the the good stuff in the law able to be maintained if you strip away the bad.

    The option is not "This health care law" or "2008 law" and.....that's it.

    sure it does. health care has been improving. poor people today have better care then rich people had 30 years ago. this is the best example fo trickle down economics. Advancement in medicine is occurring at a rapid pace, and it is for the benefit of people of all social classes.

    sometimes poor people just need to put things in perspective.
