  • Does NOBODY understand the simple strategy here??

    Let me break it down for you:

    Government starts public option. Government drops price of Grade A healthcare coverage far below any sustainable price for private competition. Private insurers go under as they would be forced to lose money to provide the same coverage and same price as the government. This clears the way for full government monopoly of healthcare, and TA-DA! You have 100% government control of all healthcare.

    Yes, the same people who said the Iraq war would take 6 months and cost a billion dollars will now run our hospitals. The same people that can't comprehend how a national debt the same size as the entire annual GDP will be crunching the insurance numbers. The same people that have failed in every single business venture they have EVER TRIED TO TAKE ON... will be running the healthcare system.

  • "Yes, the same people who said the Iraq war would take 6 months and cost a billion dollars will now run our hospitals"

    In all fairness, that was a different set of assholes. You know, the assholes who got us in this mess by rearranging all the inconvenient laws so their friends could bend us over and give us the shaft with no vaseline?

    And they aren't going to price things so low that all the insurance companies will go out of business. They're just going to offer fairer pricing so that if the insurance companies want to compete they will have to lower THEIR prices, and the end result will be more money in our pockets and some insurance CEO can't buy a golden toilet with the automatic butt wiper. Big whooptie shit.

  • These people won't figure it out until the country is third world status. Then they will try to figure out how to blame Bush.
