    succeed in doing what?

    having more people paying insurance companies for coverage?.. sure thing... absolutely.

    making insurance companies more money?.. yessir.

    making healthcare affordable?... nope

    making the nation healthier?.. nope.


    overall, success or failure doesn't enter into the equation... it's here and it's the law, and that's that.

    Where is that guy? We haven't heard much about him lately.
    He is having a car elevator installed in the garage of his new mutiny - million dollar home much to the dismay of one of his neighbors who tried to stop it from happening.

    So why do it with the addition of an infringement on personal liberty and raising taxes under false pretenses?

    She thought she could stay her on her dad's insurance but once the insurance found out she moved out she is being billed retroactively for all the bills from the time she moved out.

    So, kids have to stay home until age 26 or lose their health care? Holy (bleep!) I didn't know that. Just one more thing encouraging an extended adolescence.

    There is no alternative to footing the bill, that much we agree on. The question is how far we should be willing to go, and whether we actually demand empirical evidence that a given policy works.

    It seems to me it would be cheaper in the long run to foot the bill for a trip to the local clinic than to the ER. It would be cheaper still if the patient had to pay even a token of the cost.

    Studies are conflicting on that point. The thing about preventive medicine is that you're paying a small amount, but you're paying for everyone, whereas with emergencies you're only paying for the few who have emergencies.
