You said "for serving the public as selflessly and magnificently as they do. If we erode this differential, what incentive would they have for trying to achieve high office" Hilarious!
Such conspiracy theories imply the government has some level of competency. There's corruption, sure, but not in a "lets pass a healthcare bill that secretly controls peoples' lives" kind of way.
In my last job I was in a PPO with virtually no out of pocket expenses. My share of the premium was about $1,000 per month. I am paying that much for "wannabe" insurance that covers hardly anything. There are many problems to address.

Obama's big debt limit deception
http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/19/opinion/gingrich-oba... OBAMACARE MUST BE REPEALED POTUS says ''TRUST ME'' don't be STUPID?
I do not agree with you. That is my right. I think you are incorrect. For me, a 62-year-old man with prior health conditions who cannot buy health insurance. Obamacare is needed. I resent the implication that people who disagree with you are stupid.
Funny how "socialism" has come to be such a dirty word. I wonder if it's anything to do with media owned and controlled by capitalists? ))
Yes, very true. I guess it's somewhat comforting (and simple) for folks to think of the whole capitalism versus socialism issue as a dichotomy, but clearly it's not. Neither exists in pure form. By necessity, we've always had a hybrid system.
I feel you Larry. I'm in favor of universal health care for pretty much the reasons you describe. I am healthy at the moment but we are all getting older. What's going to happen then?
