  • No, it ignores that who little problem where it doesn't actually fix or change anything. The majority of people who don't have insurance won't get it from this, and almost half of the people who do have it will probably lose it. But why worry about details when you can regurgitate a few cliche stereotypes?

  • Private Insurance Companies are Plagued by FEDERAL mandates and are incapable to be affordable by the American People. PRIOR to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS meddling in healthcare, Employers could afford healthcare for their employees. Only a small fraction of people did not hav healthcare coverage, normally Single Males in their Mid 20's. Now the Average American without healthcare coverage is a Husband/Wife with 2 children in the mid 30's. The Federal Government CAUSED this mess we call healthcare today and now we want them to create their own plan? We want to insure that EVERY American has healthcare coverage that is ran by a system who ruined Healthcare to start with? If we returned to the original Healthecare model prior to the Governments sticky little hands it would change everything, not only would people be insured but Private Companies could be just that Private, in the FREE Market... No WE THE PEOPLE believe that

  • A few things could be done that would result in insurance coverage for everyone, but that would mean placing the burden on corporate America. Our Gov. being in bed with corporate America would rather place the burden upon the people while allowing corporate to make big bucks. One thing would be to tell employers that they have to offer insurance to all employees, not just full-time employees and to tell insurance companies that they have to provide the same benefits to everyone, that they cannot deny pre-existing conditions and that they cannot drop people from coverage. There is absolutely no need for primary and secondary insurance. If insurance is offered through a spouse's employer, then the spouse is covered there only, not also under her husband's employer's plan.
