My father had bypass surgery in 2003. A month later his insurance company canceled his policy. He could not get health insurance after that because he had a pre-existing condition. He died July 12th of congestive heart failure because he had no money for the additional heart surgery that he needed this year. He was 61 years old. You people are honestly going to tell me that the U.S. health care system is fine and doesn't need major reform? Maybe you will feel differently when you have to watch YOUR father die for no other reason than the greed of the insurance companies.

Enough of the word spoon fed notpanicking, you can't assume that all liberals are spoon fed, but you certainly choose to believe that. I personally think your opinions are a bit paranoid. You are not a psychic at all, i HIGHLY doubt that you know exactly how this is going to turn out.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad.
I want reform. Most people want reform, both Democrats and Republicans. What I want is a bill that is understandable. I want one the preserves choice. I want a bill that spells out costs and coverage in clear, concise language. I want a simple bill that utilizes our current health care system, rather than tears it downs and attempts to rebuild it.
What I don't want is a bill full of committees and oversights that have nothing to do with providing care to the uninsured. I don't want a bill so large that it covers every aspect of my health from birth to death. I don't want a bill so expensive that it bankrupts our society.
OP, is that really so different from what you want?
