@khartm8:
So, you mean poor people like me, who can not afford health care? But yet still have enough sense to see this bill is a debt mill stone around our necks dragging us deeper into economic ruin? I mean really, these views of "those poor people" are one, demeaning & 2, idiotic. This is America - we each have the opportunity to do with our lives what we will. I should not be forced to buy a service nor should I be forced to pay for the service for someone else. Reform, yes. Government mire & mishandling... NO. Here's to a long drawn out battle in the courts, I applaud the state Attorney Generals.

Hate to say it...but it your poor its you own fault. I paid my way through college by working a full time job, I am also paying my way through graduate school by working 2 jobs. Yes they are not glamorous or fancy jobs, but they pay the bills, and that is all that is needed. So whenever anyone says they can't pull themselves up by the bootstraps, I say HORSEHOCKEY!! If you are poor its because you CHOOSE to be so, by not choosing to work hard and go to college, or to get a higher technical education. There is no excuse, there is no reason, just HORSEHOCKEY!! Toughen up and work to make your own money and stay the heck away from mine...

To say those against healthcare want the poor to go without is really wrong. We just don't want the feds doing it. Want a system like Medicare? You really want a system that is going broke? And, I do pay for care for the poor, one of my biggest charities. But I shouldn't HAVE to pay for it, it should be a CHOICE.

ah narts, i wanted to get a button that says "rappel it," so close. well, i guess i should wait until i have health insurance anyway.

vote-for9vote-against

FYI - It is nearly impossible to repeal healthcare reform, so if I see someone wearing this button, I'll know they have no idea how government works.

Republicans do not have the majority, and cannot gain a majority in the next election. Even if they did (or convinced enough Democrats to go along with them), do you think Obama would sign off on it? LMAO. Doesn't anyone remember the lessons from Schoolhouse Rock?

So, the only hope for the T-Bags/Repubs is for their Hail Mary attempt to get it declared unconstitutional by the SCOTUS to succeed. Well, I'm sure Scalia, Thomas, and Alito will find some way to twist logic to fit their world view. Maybe Roberts will join in. But they will never get Kennedy to go for it. So at BEST they will lose 4-5. Ans that is only if the court decides to even hear the case.

Now, what were we talking about? Oh, buttons. This deal would suck for any kind of button.

I like the generic nature, good for any occasion.
There're so many bad laws, just start repealing and eventually they'll get it right.

The healthcare reform bill is less about helping the underprivileged than it is about the Democrats securing power. Obama was quoted as saying it's taken nearly a century to get this to pass... perhaps there's a reason it took so long. I think the insurance industry needs to be reformed, and healthcare should be available, but Americans should not be forced to pay.

Here's a thought... determine why medical costs are so high to begin with. Want a hint? Look at corrupt insurance, too many laws that allow frivolous suits, and severe imbalance in application of available aide (yeah, talking about discrimination and flat-out lying).

vote-for4vote-against

Guys... no more politics. You're ruining my happy hour.

"Look at corrupt insurance, too many laws that allow frivolous suits, and severe imbalance in application of available aide (yeah, talking about discrimination and flat-out lying). "

So...tort reform? You're telling me that tort reform is the way to fix this? You do realize that even if they cut out all 'frivolous' suits that it would save 2%, at best, right?

I think it has something to do with overhead, you know, that 25-30% extra cost (which translates almost directly into profit)? Yeah, if we just do without that perhaps instead of health insurance costing Americans 12% of the GDP it would cost somewhere along the lines of 8%, like a normal industrialized country.

I'm just glad that some Americans have finally realized that health=good.

While we're at it let's repeal the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Or maybe you like spending your tax dollars on that!

Here what should happen about 20 percent of you should buy the pen and have to wait a long time to get them while the other 80 get them free and get them when ever they want. Hmm it sound vaguely like the new health care.. thats probably what you want to repeal.. I'm just throwing it out there!!

Curious about the constitutionality of the recently passed healthcare reform? See here: http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2010/03/constitutionality-of-mandatory.html I see a lot of ideological arguments being thrown around but little informed debate. Agree with the law or don't, but do it in an informed manner.

vote-for5vote-against

People, calm down and think. Are you really happy with the health care you are receiving? Are you happy when your premiums go up every year (such as 39% for BCBS members in California) for no reason? Are you happy when your legitimate claim, a prescribed bone scan in my wife's case to test for Osteoporosis is rejected as a "pre-existing condition"? Or a routine eye exam is rejected as being a "pre-existing condition"? The list goes on an on.

The reason so many people feel fired up about this issue is because the health industry (the ones who are making all the money off you and me and making it a game to see how many claims they can reject), have been spending obscene amounts of money to influence public opinion (what you and I think) and to buy the votes of members of congress.

It's not fair. It's a gamble on the health industry's part, and it has paid off.

The health care bill that finally passed is so watered down to be practically useless. And you and I are the losers.

Why decide when you or your relative has had enough treatment or the treatment wouldn't be a good return on investment? Let the government do it for you. They know better than you do.

vote-for2vote-against

@gwpriester: ~85% of people are happy with the health CARE they are receiving according to polling - I'm one of them. Health insurance is a different animal, and most of the problems with health insurance are caused by laws currently on the books, including no portability of coverage, tax breaks that are only available through employer offered plans, etc. The reason premiums are going up in California (and the reason they are astronomical in Massachusetts) is because of STATE LAWS requiring coverage for all manner of unnecessary care in addition to coverage of regular checkups - so there is a reason. Would you purchase car insurance that covered oil changes? Is that actually insurance? The government denies more claims in number and by percentage of total claims than private insurance. When a government insured person dies, they are no longer a liability. When a privately insured person dies, they are no longer a revenue source. Who has more incentive to keep you alive?

@thingthatwalks: Government run health care kills people - unless they can afford to get treatment in the USA. Just ask Canadian politicians who abandon their freely provided health care and pay cash to get treatments here. Same with the UK. Lowest cancer survivability of any industrialized nation is in the UK. Highest cancer survivability? USA, of course.

Why do people act like ensuring everyone has access to adequate healthcare is like handing out cash and BMWs to welfare recipients!? It's HEALTHCARE people. Do you watch the starving african commericals and laugh yourself to sleep in a bath of your own greed or are just not willing to admit your Starbucks addiction doesn't leave enough money left over to play "keeping up with the Jones" AND make sure that everyone can at least seek medical help?

vote-for2vote-against

@lsvanatt: Tort reform saves ~2-3% directly by reducing costs. It also saves another ~10%-20% by reducing defensive medicine that requires tests that the doctor would not prescribe if he were not intending to prevent a suit instead of simply treat his patient.

As for the reason that health care is a higher percentage of our GDP, it is because we are a wealthy country that CHOOSES to spend our money on our health care. That is our choice. You act like it is a bad thing. I'd rather spend MORE on health care and LIVE, then spend LESS, like an average or below average industrialized country - you know, a "normal" industrialized country - and die.

Just sayin'.

vote-for5vote-against

@dentonez: "Why do people act like ensuring everyone has access to adequate healthcare is like handing out cash and BMWs to welfare recipients!?"

The poor already had access to healthcare, through charity, through hospitals writing off the cost (and charging higher costs to the gov't and insurance companies and paying customers), and through medicaid. Anybody could at any time walk into a hospital and get the care they need - and they've been doing it for decades. To suggest otherwise is the worst kind of demagoguery. As for the starving children in Africa and elsewhere, I GIVE money to charity groups (mainly churches) that deliver food and medicine to third world countries, and I also contribute to Engineers without Borders and Water for People.

That is my CHOICE, it is what I FREELY DO b/c I believe it is the right thing to do. What you do is COMPEL/FORCE other people to do what you believe they should do. Compelled charity is no virtue; if it is compelled, it is not charity.

repeal your brain more like. more people get medicare, no more discrimination against pre-existing conditions, the bill is a good start! I guess you can always pay your insurance company the proposed 30% hike if you like.

vote-for2vote-against

@markdandresen: I don't think you understand what the word "insurance" means. If you want to cover an existing ailment, what you need is a financial plan, not "insurance". Make sense now? This of course highlights the problem of insurance portability and the fact that health insurance, through existing laws, are tied to your place of employment rather than to the individual or family that is purchasing coverage.

"I guess you can always pay your insurance company the proposed 30% hike if you like."

That actually gets to the heart of the matter. Somebody doesn't like paying for the resources they intend to use. Some prefer dependence, rather than independence.
