    Good observation. Reminds me of Chicago.

    Health care costs have been increasing big time for 30 years. The private health care ind. has failed (exploited) normal people. We have by far the most expensive health care in the world and all the other rich countries have government controlled health care. We deregulated the telephone company and costs went up. Where’s the proof that Private Company’s do better? Americans give a ton of charity money for cancer research and private health care is taking credit. The army uses tax dollars to figure out the best emergency care for the troops and years ago I saw on TV news that it would transfer over to our hospitals, but private health care gets credit for it. The truth is the other rich countries have just as good health care but they cover more of their population. People have blinders on and think this is the 1970's when we were on top. Our problem now is the current bloated system is used to easy money and asking them to cut the fat is like asking those CEO's to reduce their pay or a politician to take the same benefits as us.

    Fixed your factual error.

    Am I the only one that wonders why Obama refuses to put his own family on his healthcare plan? I thought it was "middle class first"...
    My imaginary friend left me. He said his other friends didn't believe in me.

    Then you were wrong. Obviously and egregiously so. The President of the United States of America is "middle class"! Who knew?

    I won't waste time writing actual responses to your asinine comments. Come back when you have something intelligent to say.

    Original question!!

    National Health Care

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I believe that the majority of supporters for universal healthcare wouldn't be in favor of it if the costs were borne by them. What do you think?
    Check all that apply


    The bill they are currently passing
    Section 2716
    ‘‘(b) LIMITATION.—Subsection (a) shall not be construed to prohibit a plan sponsor from establishing contribution requirements for enrollment in the plan or coverage that provide for the payment by employees with lower hourly or annual compensation of a lower dollar or percentage contribution than the payment required of similarly situated employees with a higher hourly or annual compensation.

    Soooo if you work hard a earn more the % you pay for the same coverage will be more... SOCIALISM!!!!!

    If National Healthcare is such a good thing to have, why did the Democrats have to bribe members of their own party to get it passed?

    Because almost as many Democrats as Republicans are in the pay of the insurance lobby?

    It forces individuals to buy insurance from private companies. That's like forcing you to buy a car. How can that not help the insurance companies?
