I think the states need to take care of their own and Governors collectively need to come up with ideas to replace it instead on sitting on their behinds letting the federal government take over to make a mess of things. I heard today the Unions are now worried about Obama Care.

An excellent comment and one of the best explanations I have heard or read in many, may months. Thank you for your objectivity and insight.
Since Obamacare is not yet in effect, please tell me why I am being denied major medical health coverage for pre-existing conditions that are all under control, plus the fact I am almost 63 and in 3 years will be on Medicare--which is not going away.
I took you for a more intelligent man, Larry. Why don't people realize that more government intervention will mean more government control and less privacy and freedom of choice for the citizen.
What privacy are you talking about. Your medical records are available to the insurance industry and the co. you deal with will give them to related cos. You have to sign a release for any state or federal and some private jobs. Where is the privacy?
From a purely personal and prejudice perspective, Obamacare is going to prevent major insurance companies from denying coverage to me because of per-existing health conditions. For me, this is a major step forward. I will see what else happens.
That is a great idea, Mitch. I believe that eventually most if not all the private insurance companies will go out of business because they can't match government rates...leaving the federal government the sole provider of insurance...bye bye privacy
Larry, sadly means testing (death panels) may make that "gain" a moot point.
Mitch Alan, the death panel scare was bull. Besides every private ins. co. will evaluate what they pay for life ending illnesses or accidents and may not pay for everything you think they should.
Government is not suppose to make a profit--it should not be in a deficit, but part of the deficit problem is the demands placed on the system and party bickering.
