What/'s wrong with that?
Ask the Advisor: Congressional Health Care Benefits, the Rolls Royce of Health Plans?
Look evidence! Wow what a concept!
Wrong again Devil505.

I was under the impression that you were saying you wanted a UHC system in the US, and that the congressional, military, and governmental employee HC plans were a good example of how it should be done.
- Personally have almost no knowledge of those systems.
- Was under the impression that UHC (which is how I view the goal of the current bill) was, essentially. government controlled and run medical care, which would replace most if not all private control of such things.
Thus, I was led to believe that you were saying the current governmental programs for health care of their employees were the same. As I had no personal knowledge of such.
And I answered with that in mind.

Lack of understanding & deliberate misinformation has misled many Americans into thinking UHC will be free, pay for illegal aliens, pay for abortions & be run by government bureaucrats.....None of which is true.
Once the public understand what the real public HC system is, they overwhelmingly like it. That's what scares the private insurance companies......Their profits will be cut!
The Congressional & government employee health plans are:
1. Paid for by the employee
2. Run by private insurance companies (like BC/BS)
3. Do not pay for abortions
4. Do not have "Death Panels" , like your private insurance does.
I agree that the Obama administration has not done as good a job of getting out the truth as the GOP/HC Industry has done getting out lies & scare tactics.
I think this will change in September when summer recess is over.
Then, the House...The Senate....Blue Dogs Dems & any Repubs who care to will thrash out a compromise bill that will be favored by the public, passed by Congress & signed by Obama.

None of the opposition is based on his race. Think so, prove it.
My opposition is because I won't support anyone that calls me a nazi, brownshirt, senile, tea bagging redneck, etc., etc. Obviously they are trying to intimidate. Anyone with a any backbone at all will obey the phychological imperative and push back. It is just more proof that this administration is (unbelievably) more incompetent than the Carter administration.
