  • Again, not surprised.

    Knowing it would lead to rationing was pretty simple (high school level) economics to figure out. If you have increased demand, but limited supplies, coupled with pricing restraints, the only option is to ration.

  • It's laughable that some people actually thought this bill might do what they said. What can you say? Some people are so stupid.

  • And so what happens when health care starts to be rationed? Hmmm anyone at all. Well most likely knowing the corruption that is in the government, they will decide who is "valuable enough" to receive health care and who is not.  Oh you have cancer too bad, we can't afford to pay for your treatment, oh we can't even afford to medicate you, so you just need to take a pill.  Here we were feeling so sorry for the small amount of Americans who don't have health care and now we are going to have many more, cause the government can't afford it.   Of course so who have MONEY and those who have some type of IN with someone with in the government will probably get all the "Health CARE" they need.  What say you know?

  • No we are not going to have death panels, however we will let you suffer a horrific slow miserable death from your disease, or we will just implement euthanasia, and since we won't give you medical treatment, we will spend the money to put you out of your misery, if you so choose.  You could of had a chance to live if you recieved medical treatment, but there are more important people than yourself, that needed it more than you.  So sorry, that is just the way it goes when the government has it's hand in health care.

  • "rationing, higher costs, federally funded abortion, .....nope, not in there.....THIS bill will HELP, I swear it will. But, we aren't going to read all the reports before we vote, shoot, we won't even read the BILL before we vote."

    And THOSE are the people that we are supposed to trust to look after us?

    I hope this country can last until this BS H/C bill is repealed.
