    Re: Majority of Americans Now Reject Obama's War On Health Care

    A healthcare system based on a "for profit" corporate insurance base makes absolutely no sense.

    The current system is sadly broken and needs to be completely overhauled. This includes a lot of things:

    -eliminate a system where it is in the interest of insurance companies to maximize their profit by denying services

    - put safeguards in place that limit frivilous lawsuits that currently drive the costs skyhigh and encourage Drs. to use procedures that they otherwise wouldn't in order to cover their ass.

    - eliminate a system where the uninsured have no choice but to clog the emergency rooms with non-emergency situations resulting in extremely high premiums for otherwise low cost procedures, which incidentally are passed on to everyone (other than the corporate insurance company)...

    That's just a start....and basically part of Obama's plan.

    Why is for profit health care a problem?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The entire concept is flawed from the premise. Think about it logically for one second. Unless the corporation is altruistic (and tell me one corporation that is)....it is in the corporations interest to deny services in order to maximize their profits.

    Why would you want a system where a company makes more profit by denying services?

    Taxes will go up to pay for Obama's plan.

    Additionally....the corporation maximizes its profits by insuring only the "healthy" leaving those with pre-existing conditions no option.

    Then, in order to maximize profits, the corporation will look for every possible loophole to deny coverage, deny services and to cancel the policy if at all possible when the "healthy" insured becomes ill.

    Something in between, what the hell is that? Is that like being sort of pregnant?

    Translation: profits are evil, and anyone who does something for money is not to be trusted; best line those greedy pigs up against the wall and shoot them now.

    (and then piss, moan, groan, and whine like a lost schoolgirl because no one is left to provide the "services" you "need".)

    Your interpretation is consistent with your extremist views. Enough said.

    Because your extremist interpretation of my post is consistent with your extremist interpretion of pretty much everyone's posts that you disagree with. Goodbye.
