Of course, this only works well if you are a responsible person who pays your debts and bills. Otherwise, they could call bull**** and you wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
Above all he is a political animal who has been trying to hammer out a compromise that will allow the health care mafia to continue to do business while offering a public option for people like me who are being ripped off by the H.C. system. The insurance lobbyists are doing their best to make people believe that a public option = single payer. It might reduce their record profits. The insurance industry has consolidated and they are making record profits on high deductible, over priced policies. They pay less of ea premium dollar toward claims than ever before. Do you or do you not want to allow their extortion racket to continue?

We have health care through the gov't (military).
It's not as good as the care I received through civilian doctors.
After the Walter Reed scandal exposed what was happening at military hospitals, I'm surprised so many people are willing to trust the government with their health care. Haven't any of you had experience with the VA hospitals, maybe with an older relative? The problems of inefficiency and rationing are pretty universal to gov't-run programs, imo. You don't want to deal with that when you're sick. We saw it when we received health care in Germany, too. Same old crap.
I'd take American civilian medical care over the alternative any day. I think people won't realize what they had til it's gone. We need to fix the current system, not replace it with one that is worse.
