First, thank you for the reply...curious here...of that 30 million who will get coverage, how many are Illegal Aliens? Yes, that is an important question, and one that none of my elected officials are willing to answer.
Secondly, as one of 75-79 million Boomers, I am very leary that so many billions are being moved away from long term care and medicare/medicaid, and into preventive care (which benefits the young). Some in Congress have already admitted that certain long care costs are no longer going to be covered under the current bills being considered.
Cancer treatments are expensive, as are the drugs to fight cancer. Under our current plan, all those things are covered. However, once you use our taxes to create a government run system in competition with the private sector, the government run system has a pricing advantage, and to compete the Blue Crosses and other private systems will have to cut access to certain services and drugs to remain competive in the market place.
I was 40 before I was fortunate enough to have major medical coverage, it was the price I paid for wanting to start my own company...these crying weenies that want everyone else to pick up the tab for them need to get a life. I am not willing to give up a damn thing, or risk what is left of my wife's health on Obama's grand social experiment, in his quest to have America become a socialized medicine nation.
