Hey, Jack -- just what is your ethnicity? I want to be certain my forthcoming smear of you is accurate.

No ethnicity was mentioned in this quote, but I can see where a bigoted racist bastard might read that into it.
Myself, I was born in America, so I guess I'm an American. You want to blurt out an ethnic smear, who am I to stop you, go for it.
If you want me to explain the meaning of the quote, I'd be glad to do so.

There's a lot of people that filed for bankruptcy needlessly. 60% of bankruptcies in the US are due to medical bills according to:
http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/06/05/bankruptcy.medical.bills /

From: http://assets.aarp.org/rgcenter/health/fs102r_medicaid.pdf
"Medicaid eligibility is limited to individuals who fall into specified categories. Although federal law identifies over 25 different eligibility categories, these can be grouped into five broad coverage categories: children; pregnant women; adults in families with dependent children; individuals with disabilities; and the elderly. In addition to categorical eligibility, persons must also meet income and asset requirements, as well as immigration and residency requirements"
The way I read that is that only five groups of people are eligible for Medicaid. That's a long way from everyone.

Do you have a reference for this?

What about them?

They have it. By most metrics, the most destitute in the U.S. get better care than the upper classes in England.

Every "right" someone claims imposes a "duty" on someone else. Every single one. When I am FORCED to diminish my life so that someone else's life can be made better, there must be a compelling reason.

Choices have consequences. One who chooses a dissolute life-style - or even one who failed to provide for his own contingencies - must face the harvest of that which he sowed.

And, that is what has come to pass. The US people made a choice on a particular leader and that leader has made a choice on healthcare. Cry in your soup as much as you want, but deal with it instead of doing all this shrill whining and running around that the sky is falling.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Very true.

Moreover, the fools elected a ton of socialist bastards to Congress, thinking they were true American democrats, or not knowing enough to even care.

That's why we need "special interests" and "lobbyists" and "backroom deals," to counter the frenzy of the unwashed mob.
Still, as Lawrence J. Peter (founder of the "Peter Principle") said: "I have been studying governments, man and boy, for forty years (he was a Canadian). I have yet to discover whether we are being led by well-meaning fools or by really bright people who are just putting us on."

A clear, valid, and scary thought. Thanks, Gordon and Anon.

All they're trying to do is to route the gross overpayments to the medical insurers to go to the tax coffers instead. Is that so wrong? </ sarcasm>

I assure you that health care will double in cost with the government involved. It seems that with more unemployeed, the more the government comes up with programs to employee those people, productive or not. Its wellfare.

Looking in from the outside, I wonder at the level of vitriol on both sides when it appears no more than six of 350,000,000 have actually READ the bill.
And I'm guessing that fewer than three of those are in your Senate, Congress or White House.
It seems to me that both "sides" in this should be outraged, not at the legislation itself, but rather at the manner it has been rammed down your throats.
As a Canadian I understand the problems of a socialized medical system. The response from a specialist here today to someone close to me when asked to book a colonoscopy was "Sure, we can put you on the list, but don't hold your breath."

I'll bet it was much the same as the health care debate, and the country has somehow survived.
