  • For starters children will no longer be considerd uninsurable when they are born without insurance. I hope that we end up with an affordable system... we pay over $500 a month for private health insurance with a $4000 deductable EACH. (we have four in our family.)

  • 20 million people will still be uninsured, prices will skyrocket, there will be long waits especially if you are a senior on medicare. Drs. will stop taking medicare and medicaid because the government pays them a fraction of what it costs to see and treat these patients.
    Top of the line and experimental medicines and treatments will be harder to get because they are expensive. Your life could hang in the balance because a panel of know nothings will decide if the government should allow those expensive drugs and treatments to be given. Businesses will fold because they cannot afford to pay for insurance for their employees.

    Sounds great huh?
