If you believe people are mistreated with private insurance

and your argument is we need reform because people are already dropped from their insurance when they are diagnosed with expensive diseases or left without treatment because they have pre-existing conditions, why on earth do you want them to pass a bill that will make those same things happen to exponentially more people?

Are you just sadistic? If you are truly upset about those conditions, wouldn't you want a plan that would improve them instead of making them more widespread?

  • Whats sad is we shouldn't have to read through each bill that changes all the time and has hundreds and thousands of pages sometime. No one can do that. But when we have questions that they can't answer honestly we get suspicious. So I wouldn't trust the government with Health-care until they can start answering questions head on without dancing around it. There is no real reason those bills have to be that long. They throw things that shouldn't be in it and know no one will read it. And even if they do it's more about negotiation of the people voting and normally not what the people want.

  • So in your opinion, ANY government sponsored plan is worse than our current system?
    How do YOU know that? Last I heard the plan was still be devised, so WHICH plan are you referring to? Is it because we have Dems running the show? Would it be different if Repubs were in office? Is our system of big business deciding our health care coverage, FOR A PROFIT, A-OK with you? NOT ME!

    The system we have now is financially unsustainable and must be reformed-there really is NO other option. Most could not financially weather a major illness to the policy holder and family bread winnner.

  • You actually believe that this is THE bill, set in stone?

    What about the revisions and changes already made?

  • My point is I looked over an earlier version and since then changes have been made. Do you think what is posted today will be the actual bill presented? Do you check for changes hourly, daily, weekly?

    What are you doing after each and every devision? Is it making a huge difference or having any real affect?

    What our your solutions for repairing our lifeless hc system? Or is stauts quo ok until it implodes and YOU and YOUR family is affected?

  • Cont- As you can tell, I'm not interested in BS banter, mud slinging or partisan bullying. I want to hear concrete solutions. Focus on the positive instead of the doom and gloom negative, which as you can tell gets nothing accomplished.
