  • I love how everyone keeps calling it 'Obamacare'. If you are going to talk about this plan so much then at least acknowledge the man that really wrote it, which would be John Dingell.

    NOT. Does the government have more control over granny's life? NO In fact, we can hold them accountable by voting them OUT! We can do NOTHING about the insurance companies.They testified before congress that they will NOT change their practices

  • You educate yourself anon ..you are deflecting...at least with private insurance I can be picky in ways and complain and do work with them ..somehow with government control I don't see much of that or at all.

    And if I disagree with what my insurance company says, I have the option to fire them.
